Ok… this is kind of a Post-Play’em article. Check out my taped GDC interview with John Abercrombie, AI Lead on Bioshock over at IA on AI.
As I play further into the game, I will eventually post actual play observations. My interview has kinda spoiled the purity of my game experience, though. I know what to look for!
Also, I have posted my notes from Soren Johnson’s GDC lecture on the AI of Civ 4. It doesn’t get hardly at all into the actual mechanics of what they did (which I plan on doing in my Post-Play’em later) but rather covers how he tried to position the AI as somewhere between “good” (real) and “fun”.
Stay tuned for the actual Post-Play’em on that one!
