For all of you who have wondered about the prevalence of dead cats – or rather, one dead cat in particular – in Bioshock, the mystery continues….
Remember my blog post about this cat in original Bioshock? Well, the same cat appears in Bioshock 2. And this time, I have photos. (It’s like the Loch Ness Monster! Pictorial proof!)
Okay, here is your typical Bioshock cat:
See how it looks like it just tipped over? Not like the icky corpses of people.
That circle you see over its front paws is my PS3 reticle. You’ll notice no descriptive word has come up to identify the being.
Now here is a Bioshock cat you can uncover if you melt a specific pile of ice. This cat appears to have been frozen with some fish and a fisherman (perhaps its owner?).
This time, when the reticle is placed on the kitty, it is labeled “Corpse.” Same as the person.
And here is a kitty in a baby buggy. It is also merely labeled "Corpse."
In case you’re wondering, there are some models of dogs in Bioshock 2. They’re statues (possibly broken animatronics) located on this museum/ride thing that teaches children why Rapture was necessary. But no real dog bodies. Only real cats.
So the cat mystery continues.
