Is there any way to manually activate Bioshock PC on an offline computer? Has anyone used the site to get an unlock code for an offline PC?

Don't give your serial number to any external website such as this. Period. – Oak Jul 27 '10 at 17:36
Should we edit the question to not link there, especially if it's a phishing site? – McKay Jul 27 '10 at 17:42
It's legit, @McKay, @MrPanda. I changed my answer accordingly. – badp Jul 27 '10 at 17:43
I already removed it, but I'll put it back up. I think that forum is where I got the link initially. – Mr Panda Jul 27 '10 at 17:46

Who linked you to that website?

The offline activation tool seems to suggest you email and I suggest you do that.

The page you linked could very well be a scam.

The website seems legit, as it is referenced in a pinned thread by a moderator on the official 2kgames boards.

I wouldn't say that's enough evidence for it being legit... a moderator is not necessarily a company employee, and maybe he just found it online and provided link without checking it himself. – Oak Jul 27 '10 at 18:21
Really? On a two years old sticky with 3k views? Without other mods and admins checking on him? – badp Jul 27 '10 at 18:34
