btw. every one is arguing so i thought id clarifie.(sorry my english isnt best im russian) delta was a big daddy before little sisters. he was a member of a sub that got to close to close to rapture so one of raptures subs shot it down. delta escaped before the sub blew up. he swam in an open airlock into rapture. the police were waiting for him when he got in. so he made a deal with ryan to be welded into a diver suit and work on varous part of rapture. three years lader he was b o nded with lambs daughter eleanor. i read the book thats how i know.
Boy, and here I thought he was a deep sea explorer with iron cajones. Johnny Topside:"Huzza! I'm two miles below the ocean! What a thrill! Hey, wait a second. Is that a city? Maybe I should go chech it out..." Several months later..... BANG! BANG! Eleanore:"Look Daddy, it's you!" *shows doll* Ten years later.... Delta:"What...where am I? What am I?" Thus begins the next chapter.
Ah-ha. Hmmm...I may have to look into this. I haven't found anything in the second game or even in the strategy guide that would elaborate on 'Johnny Topside' any further than what Stanley Poole told me. Thanks!
When I first bought BioShock, I was expecting it to be out-and-out horror/action more than anything else. But while it delivered that in spades, I was surprised (in a good way) by just how sad it could be.
And then 2 had to go and be even sadder. By this rate, BioShock: Infinite is probably going to be a solid candidate for the most depressing game of all time.
never thought of BioShock as a depressing sad game, maybe because I always go for the good ending... never get the bad ending, but in either cases you get what you want, either a family or word domination... pretty cool either ways. but thinking about it, yeah it can be really sad game, considering everything that you go through in your "childhood" then getting the knowlegde(is that word write correctly? english isn't my first language...) that you are a programed weapon is really sad...
but BioShock 2 is indeed a really depressing game, I mean you are dying since you awoke... Delta was meant to die... still I love the neutral ending and the most sad of them... XD
but BioShock infinite is in the skies, with sun... and clouds, it can't be depressing... no... well I really hope that it isn't depressing... I mean it will be already with the hundred of times that I will die, because I didn't grab a skyline, or that songbird kills me or the enemies...
What was that thing Suchong said in one of his audio diaries? 'Nobody cross the Big Daddy'? ...as Madame Giry says in Phantom of the Opera: 'Those who speak of what they know find too late that prudent silence is wise.' Oh well, this HAD to make Tenenbaums day! XD
Well my day has just been made. My brother was playing Bioshock 2 and he found an audio diary that nullyfies my previous comment. The diary is Alexander talking about the first successful bond between a Big Daddy and a Little Sister. In the diary, Alexander identifies Delta and Eleanor as the first successful bond. If anyone whose finished Bioshock 1 will remember, Suchong was trying to figure out how to get the bond to work before he slapped a Little Sister and got himself drilled into the table. Now if you put all that together and add the fact that we play Delta in Bioshock 2 you realize... WE KILLED SUCHONG
Of course, the best part is how Alexander is not at all broken up over Suchong's death. "It is unfortunate that Dr. Suchong could not raise a glass."
actually I think Alexander is referring to one of the previous Alpha series, Alpha, Beta or Gamma, I think those are the first three letters, anyway, he speak of them saying that only when a Little Sister is hurt, AKA as been slap in the face by Suchong is that the Big Daddies actually turn agressive and attack that is what happen to Suchong. Suchong sort of made the pre-bond since the Big Daddy did protect the Little Sister when in danger, but Alexander bond was that they actually stay with them all the time, I can't remember which audio diary is but Alexander say that the first Big Daddies, just wonder around even walk away from the city, therefore he needed to create a bond that would force the Big Daddy to stay in Rapture looking after a Little Sister that is the bond that he create, rather than just defending her that is the bond that Suchong create, so it could be Delta, but I don't think is actually Delta the one that drilled Suchong but another random Big Daddy...
I think Delta-sama came along after the fact. He discovered Rapture on a diving expedition and was aprehended. After that, he was "volunteered" for the Protector Program. So, I think Alexander was still working on the Pair Bond mechanism either when 'Johnny Topside' was still incarcerated or right about the time he showed up. I've been trying to line up the Rapture timeline... But yeah, that is definitely a Bouncer drill screwed into Suchong.
