It's the end of World War II. FDR's New Deal has redefined American politics. Taxes are at an all-time high. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki has brought a fear of total annihilation. The rise of secret government agencies and sanctions on business has many watching their backs. America's sense of freedom is diminishing . . . and many are desperate to take that freedom back. Among them is a great dreamer, an immigrant who pulled himself from the depths of poverty to become one of the wealthiest and admired men in the world. That man is Andrew Ryan, and he believed that great men and women deserve better. And so he set out to create the impossible, a utopia free from government, censorship, and moral restrictions on science--where what you give is what you get. He created Rapture---the shining city below the sea. But as we all know, this utopia suffered a great tragedy. This is the story of how it all came to be . . .and how it all ended. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Beyond the Sea

The Bioshock series looms large in the industry and culture of video games for its ambitious incorporation of high-minded philosophical questions and retro-futuristic aesthetics into the ultraviolent first-person shooter genre. Beyond the Sea marks ten years since the release of the original game with an interdisciplinary collection of essays on Bioshock, Bioshock 2, and Bioshock Infinite. Simultaneously lauded as landmarks in the artistic growth of the medium and criticized for their compromised vision and politics, the Bioshock games have been the subject of significant scholarly and critical discussion. Moving past well-trodden debates, Beyond the Sea broadens the conversation by putting video games in dialogue with a diverse range of other disciplines and cultural forms, from parenting psychology to post-humanism, from Thomas Pynchon to German expressionist cinema. Offering bold new perspectives on a canonical series, Beyond the Sea is a timely contribution to our understanding of the aesthetics, the industry, and the culture of video games. Contributors include Daniel Ante-Contreras (Miracosta), Luke Arnott (Western Ontario), Betsy Brey (Waterloo), Patrick Brown (Iowa), Michael Fuchs (Graz), Jamie Henthorn (Catawba), Brendan Keogh (Queensland), Cameron Kunzelman (Georgia), Cody Mejeur (Michigan State), Matthew Thomas Payne (Notre Dame), Gareth Schott (Waikato), Karen Schrier (Marist), Sarah Stang (York/Ryerson), Sarah Thorne (Carleton), John Vanderhoef (California State, Dominguez Hills), Matthew Wysocki (Flagler), Jordan R. Youngblood (Eastern Connecticut State), and Sarah Zaidan (Emerson).

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Multimedia, Internet, neue Technologien, Note: 1,7, Eberhard-Karls-Universitat Tubingen (Philosophische Fakultat), Veranstaltung: Analyse: Game Studies, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Das aus den Pionierzeiten der Videospiele bekannte Damsel in Distress'- bzw. Jungfrau in Noten'-Motiv hat bis heute noch nicht an Aktualitat verloren. Zusammen mit der generellen Tendenz, weibliche Spielfigurenkonzeptionen nach Stereotypen auszurichten, wird jener Stereotyp der Damsel in Distress' in dieser Arbeit am Beispiel von Elizabeth aus "BIOSHOCK INFINITE" analysiert. In der Internetgemeinde fanden zahlreiche Diskussionen uber den Gehalt der stereotypischen Darstellung in Elizabeths Figurenkonzeption statt. Das Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es, jenen Gehalt mithilfe unterschiedlicher Aspekte und einer auf den Kontext der Spielgeschichte und -mechanik bezogenen Analyse zu ermitteln. Hierbei wird ebenso bewertet werden, inwieweit der Spieleentwickler Irrational Games trotz des Ziels von Innovation und antisexistischer Darstellungen dennoch auf stereotypische Darstellungsweisen zuruckgreift.
