Fans of BioShock who need a way to get their lunch to and from work or school will want to check out this awesome Big Daddy lunchbox. It’s one of those metal ones like we loved back in the ’80s and has the underwater drilling Big Daddy on the front.
One of the most memorable video games I have ever played was BioShock. The original game and its underwater city of Rapture was a creepy mix of high-tech with art deco style. Some of the most remarkable characters from the game were the giant diving suit wearing Big Daddies.
Redditor UpgradeTech has a growing collection of video game vinyl records, and is a fan of Art Deco style. So they thought they’d store their collection in an appropriate container: the bin from Bioshock‘s Rapture Records.
My grandmother used to do a lot of crochet when I was growing up. She was always making me some sort of socks or a blanket. I hated those blankets. Not only did they have tons of holes to let cold air in, they were itchy as well.
ThinkGeek has what may be the greatest way to access your favorite games on Steam. It’s called the Steam-Powered Gaming Cabinet and it is literally powered by steam. Archer would have a field day with this thing.
Filmmaker Andy Jarosz likes to make miniature sets in his spare time. He recently spoke with Game Informer to show off his latest work – a 1:26 scale replica of a set in Bioshock. Andy 3D printed the Little Sisters and the Gatherer’s Garden vending machine, but most of the pieces were made from “all manner of materials and tools.”
Bioshock’s Big Daddy almost looks cute in this animated gif made by artist Shawn Michael aka Theomeganerd. The mashup was originally the idea of Verso, who drew the Big Daddy and Little Sister in the style of My Neighbor Totoro for a T-shirt graphic.
If you enjoyed Bioshock Infinite, I have some good news for you. The Sky-Hook is real! As real as it is likely to get anyway. What you see here is an “Air Grabber” prop (the Rapture version of the Sky-Hook from Bioshock Infinite’s DLC).
We saw an unofficial LEGO version of the Motorized Patriot a couple of weeks ago. But if you wouldn’t mind spending a little cash for something more detailed, check out NECA’s officially licensed action figure of the fearsome Heavy Hitter.
This LEGO model of the Motorized Patriot from Bioshock Infinite is a testament to the technical prowess and power of Carl Merriam. He made it as part of his Iron Builder battle with Pepa Quin, who if I remember correctly is another famous and talented LEGO enthusiast.
The bird and cage necklaces in Bioshock Infinite are one of the “choices” offered in the critically acclaimed game. In that world, Elizabeth asks you to choose which necklace she should get. But in this world, you don’t have to choose, because you can buy both of these fan made replicas.
I’ve been playing through BioShock: Infinite for the last couple of weeks, and one thought that kept popping into my head was what would happen if Elizabeth’s “tearing” ability let her access other video games? Well, illustrator Nick Minor (aka Radiant Grey) had the same thought, and came up with this Portal/BioShock Infinite mashup…
If you’re like me, you’re pretty disappointed that Bioshock Infinite was delayed until February 2013. But I suppose I’d rather have a rock-solid game than one filled with bugs and rushed to market. One thing to look forward to when the game finally comes out is the awesome looking Ultimate Songbird Edition.
