Resource planning? If you’re to survive this mode, proper planning will be crucial. Combat specializations? You’ll need to develop them efficiently and effectively throughout the story; any weapon will be useless to you unless you have that specialization. Combat? You will need to carefully target every shot, and your health will be set to an entirely different baseline. Game saves? Well, yes, there will be those, but according to Irrational Games Creative Director Ken Levine “there are game saves, and you’re gonna f***ing need them.”
I am looking forward to this. I tried to play through the originals in advance of this launch, but good luck getting them to work properly in current versions of Windows.
As in issues with Windows 8?

I am running Windows 8, but forum threads around the Web have tipped me off that Windows 7 can experience the same issues. The worst part is, I've seen at least 10 different "fixes" (mostly for the original), and none of them worked for me. As I read further, it was clear that what might work for one person might not for another... it was truly hit-or-miss. There's even guides over at Steam to help out... but none did help me.
The issue with the original boils down to the sound system that the game ships with. It apparently doesn't work with current Windows versions well, if at all, and compatibility mode didn't help me out. The best I could get it was to have the game run fine, but without sound.
BioShock 2 I -did- get to work. Its biggest hassle is Games for Windows Live. After a bit of trouble-shooting, I believe it worked mostly fine. But by that point I was so frustrated over my entire evening being lost that I likewise lost interest in even playing it anymore.
If these were old games, I could understand a wee bit that they may be problematic. But BioShock only came out in 2007, so to have game-breaking issues today is a little ridiculous.
