Bioshock: MARK MELTZER by Eldanis Bioshock: MARK MELTZER by Eldanis
Apologies to all my commissioners: this has been eating my time lately instead because MARK MELTZER NEEDS MORE RECOGNITION, man.

For all but the three of you who might actually recognize who he is:

Mark is the protagonist from There's Something in the Sea, which is an ARG (alternate reality game) that happened as part of the viral marketing campaign between Bioshock 1 and 2. He's an average guy whose daughter is abducted, and from that point he chases a paper maze trail that eventually leads him to Rapture. If you pay attention in Bioshock 2, you come across the end of his journey. HE'S AWESOME OKAY.

Also for the three of you who do know what SitS is: that's Benny Stango in the upper right, awwyeah. Yes I know Lutwidge would technically make more sense as a fellow antagonist with Sofia, but I like Benny better SO THERE. :>

Man there is so much stuff in this thing that I want to blather about, but all of it is full of spoilers. Like why the Big Daddy is a Rumbler instead of the Rosie EVERYONE draws. And who the Little Sister is. /flails

...this is ultimately all ~triumph-forks' fault. ♥ ♥ ♥

I didn't see there's something in the sea. (I actually thought it was supposed to be a game based novel when I first heard of it.) But his audio diaries in the game fascinated me. I wanted to find out as much of his story as I could while playing. To be honest, I felt sorry for that guy! I make it a point to find and save EVERY little sister, and for one of them you actually have to go through him to do it. Guy dealt with so much crud, finally found his daughter, had to become a Big Daddy in order to be with her and... I just feel sad every time I end up fighting him and finding his last audio diary.

RIP...the poor man. He will be missed.

On the other hand, for your average guy, HE'S THE ONLY ONE WHO MADE IT THROUGH RAPTURE WITH JUST A REVOLVER.

I heard his screams through the door and me being an idiot I didn't try going through the doors to get to him (then again, I was trying to rescue or gather with a Little Sister at the time if I remember).

But then when I saw him as a Rumbler, I was heartbroken. Even though I assume I'll get a good ending, I still want Lamb to pay for all the death she's caused. And that voice of her's; the voice actress does an excellent job in making a villain you could hate.

I'd strap her to ten thousand pounds of TNT, then hand Mark his pistol and ask him to shoot.

And then we put the fire out with Winter Blast, melt her, cover her in Insect Swarm then let Grace Holloway and everyone else living in her are hang Lamb from a streetlight.

Then give a Handyman a baseball bat and have him go to town on her like a pinata.
