What are the folks who didn't make the cut at Irrational Games doing now?

Watch the Kickstarter video from Day For Night Games and you will see a lot of Bioshock DNA in The Blck Glove, but not a lot of bloodshed.  Instead of hordes of Splicers to take down in a variety of ways there are three artists whose creations you can improve by changing their past Muse, Medium or Message and instead of Big Daddy there is a ... Space Minotaur?  You take the role of curator for The Equinox, a rather surreal 1920's theatre with three exhibits, the artist Marisol, the filmmaker Avery Arnault, and musical act Many Embers.  By overcoming the Space Minotaur in a variety of minigames you can change the past of these three artists to completely change and hopefully improve their creations in the games present.  The focus will be on the amount of times you can replay the game as each of the three categories will have three sub-categories which leads to many possible outcomes for the three artists creations.  Rock, Paper, SHOTGUN offers their thoughts on this project here.

This may not end up being as much of a hit as Bioshock multiplayer did with the Fragging Frogs but there will likely be a few members who do end up picking it up.  In the meantime BF4, ARMA2 and 3, UT2K4 and a wide variety of other games remain popular and more importantly, populated with players.  Check out what they will be up to tonight!

"The Black Glove is a new project from a selection of the developers who worked on Bioshock, from the first game right up until Burial at Sea and the winding down of Irrational. It has instantly become one of the games I’m most looking forward to seeing more of, although that’s partly because there’s not quite enough on show right now."

As Irrational swims with the fishes, so can you

One hopes that by now you have managed to free the 40-some gigabytes of storage required to install Bioshock Infinite so that you can play the recently released second Episode of Burial at Sea.  Many have chose to wait to touch Episode 1 until the second instalment was released as Valve has developed a tendency to wait a bit between their releases.  If you have been too busy playing Goat Simulator and have not yet played through the release you can tease yourself with the trailer below.  If you have played it, Rock, Paper, SHOTGUN's recent Wot I Think is worth reading through as they give a well thought out look at Irrational's last product.

"You’ll hear no politics from me, though by God it’s tempting to correlate Burial At Sea Part 2′s status as a swansong for two BioShock universes with the recent, shock closure of Irrational. Whatever else there is to both tales, at least this concluding DLC for BioShock Infinite reverses the sense of decline we’ve seen since the original BioShock."
