The most appealing thing for me in Bioshock was the environment. Rapture was an amazing place, and to me was the real character of the game (yes, I said the setting was a character). A micro-set of Big Daddy's and Splicers would be worth picking up, but I'd surely hope that they make Rapture map too.
As for Assassin's Creed... I'm a huge fan of the series, but again I imagine having a very limited character selection. You only have four main antagonist (Altiar, Ezio, Connor, and Desmond). I guess you could add generic guards, and a few supporting characters. But most of the villains are just normal d-bags. I think an action pack would be the way to go for AC heroclix.
But now that we're talking about NECA video game licenses, what I really want to see is God of War. There are about a dozen versions of Kratos they could make, plus a long roster of Greek gods and monsters. You could easily fill a full set with the GoW characters.
My sentiments exactly. Rapture is a gorgeous, if not scary as hell environment. I'd love to see multiple maps of it.
I love the whole Steampunk-ish feel of it. Absolutely one of the greatest video game franchises I've ever enjoyed.
I didn't finish AC. As beautiful a game as that was, I kinda lost interest. I seem to be in the minority on this.

Initially they are frightening. They sort of announce they're on their way and that in itself is creepy as hell.

Bioshock might be an interesting set for you, though. the storyline, gameplay, characters, etc. will translate perfectly to Heroclix, imo.
It'll certainly bring a horrorclix feel with it, and there's plenty of great combat opportunities to be sure. It may sound strange but there seems to be a certain elegance to the savagery of the whole Bioshock world.
I'm definitely on board for this!
Assassin's creed can easily fill it's 12 figure set if they're going to be 6 each from brotherhood and revelations. I haven't finished revelations yet but the set list speculation on such a small set is easy to do. I mean the 6 from brotherhood could easily be Ezio, Machiavelli, Leonardo, Assassin recruit, Rodrigo Borgia, Cesare Borgia, Papal Guards, Ezio w/ the apple, Bartolomeo, La Volpe, Claudia, the list goes on and on.
