Next Gen Podcast with Ken Levine

Next Gen have released a 55 minute podcast with Irrational's Ken Levine.

This week’s guest is Irrational Games boss Ken Levine, who tells us all about much fancied shooter Bioshock. He says all this chatter of the game being multi-genre based in a lot of tosh. "It's a shooter," he insists, "but it's got a lot more stuff going for it." Click through for more quotes and the link.

He adds, "One of the reasons we want to establish it clearly as a shooter is that people get very confused. Look at Psychonauts. It was so strange and cool but they never really defined what kind of a game it was. Maybe if they'd just said.'this is a platfomer that's going to really push the genre forward,' they might have had more commercial success. Sometimes you just have to give people the basic information to make their purchasing decisions easier."

In it he also mentions that they will be releasing the 'Hunting the Big Daddy' video which was showcased at last year's X06!
