From jazz songs to pinball machines, fans pay homage to BioShock


If you’re one of the many Bioshock fans (not so) patiently waiting for the next (and now delayed) installment of the popular game franchise for 2013, try to console yourself that you’re not alone.

Fans of first person shooters with a dystopian bent have been trying to find ways to spend their days without “BioShock Infinite” … and they have found some pretty clever ways to kill / fill their time.

For starters, comedian and video game fan Brent Black (aka Brentalfloss) composed her own theme song “BioShock” – a song that puts into words all the underwater weirdness of the early games … and then sets it to an old-fashioned jazz tune:

I’m not going to go down to Rapture, stick a needle in your arm It’s going to slowly corrode your genetic code, but that’s part of the charm So you’re a crass abomination, but over time you’ll be … So glad you came in the best little town at the bottom of the deep blue sea

Brentalfloss is the same guy who gave us the Country theme song “Team Fortress 2” and put the lyrics on the Theme song “Civilization”. (You can buy an entire album of its magical musical hilarity through iTunes on the right here.)

Meanwhile, Swedish pinball enthusiast Robert Bjärmyr took care of everything this fully custom made Bioshock themed pinball machine. Here is just a brief overview of the display:

While have you done to fill your time without BioShock?
