BioShock 2 record contains ode to Rapture, is creepy

Monday, 6th July 2009 20:44 GMT By Nathan Grayson


Last week, select members of the press received an actual, physical, gramophone-not-included BioShock 2 record from Take-Two. After scouring the MP3-ridden wasteland that is earth for a gramophone, Kotaku listened to the thing.

Its two sides contain what Kotaku describes as a “Rapture anthem,” interrupted only once by the sounds of a Little Sister wondering if Big Daddy will come and find her. Guess our dreams of Big Daddy starting an East vs. West coast rap feud will have to wait.

Apparently, this continues a story started in the first BioShock 2 promotional item, in which someone was searching for his “daughter.” Are these hints at the plot structure of BioShock 2? Probably.

Game’s out this fall. Click through the link if you fancy a look at the song’s lyrics.

    Is it just me or does that rounded bit in the middle make it look like it says ‘Crapture’?

    A record? Wow, that’s retro…

    *tries to remember where his record player is*

    Can’t fault them for their originality.

    I showed the kids some records and they were amazed. We couldn’t actually play them because my record player’s long gone, but they were super impressed at how big they are. :-D
