I'm not watching 10 minutes of footage of a game I'm already sold on.
Thanks anyway

Dude, I would if I were you. If you think Rapture was awesome (and it is) Colubia will be even more twisted. This footage is amazing.

I watched this on youtube about an hour ago. WOW, am I impressed.

@Infernape- The creater said in the new Game Informer that this isn't Bioshock 3, since it has nothing from the previous games, but he said its more like a little side story.

@Infernape.... not really. Kevin Levine the guy who designed Bioshock had nothing to do with Bioshock 2. Instead he has been hard at work on this. Its a game within the Bioshock frame, but that is it. It holds similarities to Bioshock, Rapture is underwater and a city politically set aside and Columbia is a city that is suppose to be the Ultimate in politics and unity, built to show the greatness of the United States, and place of true freedom, etc. Only as the gameplay shows, Columbia is no longer what it was.

GameInformer has a MASSIVE write up on it. I recommend reading it.

Yeah, more of a "spiritual sequel" than a sequel-proper. I'm much more interested in this game than i ever was in Bioshock 2, which i had no interest in at all despite really enjoying the first game. One game in Rapture was enough to suit me.

I saw this earlier, and I still gotta say: looks awesome!

So it's essentially the story of Bioshock again? Extra points for originality.

Also, I'm not a Bioshock fan, but I clicked. Ooh.

Let's play some Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate! Let me know who you are before you add me.

From what I understand is that Levine never intended for there to be a direct sequel to the first Bioshock, that he intended Bioshock to be a sort of anthology series, where each game would be it's own independent story unrelated to the others but all having a similar theme.

Oh I see. I know that Bioshock 2 wasn't under his control.

Still I'd have liked to see more/different themes than decadence and post-apocalyptic angst. Basing it in yet another fantastical ruined city based upon utopian ideals just seems to be phoning it in, imo.

Except this time, we're not underwater, we're in the sky. That must be enough of a change for most people, I guess.

@HMac.... actually man there is much more of a deeper story to Rapture and from the readings Ive done with Columbia. Both cities pull inspirations from actual countries in this world and its political affiliations. Grab the first game, forget everything you have heard about it, and turn the lights out the sound up and enjoy and understand. Then watch this trailer and you will understand. If ever there was a game that has art infused into fibers its Biosock.

Oh... Bioshock 2 is Incredible by the way.

It's good, but nowhere near as good as the first. It's more like BioShock 1.5

This new one looks amazing, must purchase...2012 is so far away though...bummer.

Send me the best you've got. Send me your strongest machines. The fight my brother fought, here, now, will end with me.

I never played the other games, but this fantastic, IMO. Too bad we've got to wait so long for it. And then we'll all die, so that sucks too.

The best strategy in the game: go up stairs and pause balls.

In the mean time go buy both BioShock 1 and 2, you have plenty of time. It's sacrilegious as a gamer not to have played them.

I do have it, but I just couldn't get into it. For all its narrative and philosophical pretence, too much of it was anachronistic or absurdly out of context for me to be able to immerse myself and enjoy it. Contextual points aside, there's also free and accessible re-spawns and infinitely spawning enemies putting the difficulty curve way out of whack, terrible pacing, repetitive level design, a half-hearted approach to horror, and generally poor combat in relation to other FPSes.

Yes the environments are nice and the story is intriguing, but the game as a whole felt like a let-down to me. I found System Shock 2 much more appealing from all angles. This is my opinion of course and I'm not flaming Bioshock or its fans. Hopefully the next Bioshock game will improve all of these enough that I could enjoy it.

I got tired of the first Bioshock once I hit the second area. It became too tedious, and the level design for the most part was cluttered destroyed random repetitive messes after another. The combat was also pretty generic and awful...You know, it would of been great if you could somehow block or deflect an enemies attack. And the entire experience just became annoying....Even though I progressed much further into the game, I called it quits and handed it over to my brother who actually finished it. Anyways based on what I've played I too thought it was a letdown...Then I remember experiencing Metroid Prime 3 afterwords and it simply put blew my mind as I was completely immersed, what an amazing experience, the greatest first person experience I've ever had.

Anyways, how was Bioshock 2? But I guess it really doesn't matter since I"m exactly interested in it, it looks like a weaker version of the original. And as for BioShock Infinite, I have to admit this looks pretty damn awesome, I love the atmosphere! Taking place in the Sky is a nice freaking change But this game better make use of the Sony Move, or I'll be totaly pissed off. There's no way I'm going back to Dual Analog.

PS: And what a way to treat a stranger, the Bartender tells the guy that they're closed and shoots him with his shotgun, a class act indeed!lol
