I think it's really interesting to see games I love in very early forms. Linked above is the first 10 minutes of BioShock Infinite shown in 2010. The game starts very differently and features a different voice cast for Booker. Columbia looks very similar to how the game shipped but the placement of buildings and nearly every story beat is different. That said, I think the final shipped game introduction is better as well as the gameplay. Some felt that the shipped version of BioShock Infinite wasn't what was demo'd and were disappointed with it but from this early footage I am very glad they made the changes they did.

Remastered for current-gen, this edition includes all three #BioShock games, complete with all single-player DLC and a never-before-seen video series with commentary from Ken Levine.

If you haven't jumped into BioShock yet this upcoming collection will be a great time to do so. Whereas the original game didn't sit as well with me as others, I thought BioShock Infinite and both DLC missions were incredible. If you enjoy heady sci-fi games with compelling stories, characters and gameplay or simply want to head... Read All

The final piece of the puzzle is here. The swan song of Irrational Games, and what Ken Levine has said should be a very satisfying end to the Bioshock saga as IG has told it. My Steam download queue shows the file coming in at 9.1GB, so if bandwidth is an issue, start downloading it ASAP.

In this episode of The Cheerful Ghost Roundtable we are talking all about BioShock Infinite. This episode is special in that it features the guys from Sleep Ninja Games making the upcoming Indie awesomery, Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake. We talk a little about what we've been playing, what we are drinking and I do a quick Q&A about how Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake development is going.

We then tear into a rabid discussion about the amazingness that is BioShock Infinite. I warn you as with things we love, we have some critiques of it. Put your nerd-fi hats on, this episode clocks in at a whopping 2+ hours. And really, did you want it any other way?

In what has become my "bummer of the day" it seems Irrational Games, the company that brought us BioShock, BioShock Infinite and Freedom Force is closing down.

"We built Rapture and Columbia, the Von Braun and The Rickenbacker, the Freedom Fortress and some of the nastiest basements a SWAT team ever set foot into. We created Booker and Elizabeth, the Big Daddy and the Little Sister, MidWives and ManBot. In that time, Irrational has grown larger and more successful than we could have conceived when we began our three-person studio in a living room in Cambridge, MA. It’s been the defining project of my professional life.

Now Irrational Games is about to roll... Read All

Irrational just released a new preview clip of BioShock Infinite Burial at Sea Episode Two in all it's spoilerific glory. This will be the last bit of Bioshock Infinite DLC as part of the Season Pass. I wonder if Irrational will take a tip from 2K and release more or if this will be the final bit of Bioshock Infinite story?

Only the Songbird knows for sure.

I picked up BioShock Infinite in the recently Steam Sale for $9.99 looking for a game to play over the holidays. Since the Steam version has a Mac port I installed it on my laptop and decided to cut into it the other night. First off the game is beautiful. Really, this game is one of the prettiest games I have seen in quite a long time. The amount of visual candy present in this game is astounding and the fact that it holds up is a testament to the games league of programmers.

Right now I am alternating between playing the game straight up on my laptop, plugging it into an external monitor and using HDMI to put it on a TV. I am also playing the game with a... Read All

Return to Rapture with Booker and Elizabeth on November 12 with the first installment of the Burial at Sea DLC.

To recap for those who aren't familiar, this DLC takes the main characters of Bioshock: Infinite to Rapture, before it fell into chaos.

If you have the season pass, then you're done-- just download the update when it's released and start playing. Otherwise, it'll set you back $15, as will the second episode. If you're fairly confident you'll want to play both, the season pass is $20, so more bang for your buck!

"Come back to Rapture in a story that finds Booker and Elizabeth on the eve of the underwater city's fall from grace.
Get a taste of Rapture in its full glory, almost entirely built from scratch in the BioShock Infinite engine.

2K just dropped a 5 minute game-play video for part one of Burial At Sea, a upcoming DLC pack for BioShock infinite. Looks like a very pretty return to Rapture. The video really shows off the world building and I wanted them to spend more time just looking at things and listening to peoples conversations. I wonder how much of Rapture you will get to experience before it falls into chaos? That said, VERY excited to play this.

I loved these videos when Bioshock Infinite was nearing release. It really helped get my interest piqued, though it was already piqued to the peak (see what I did there?)

This Fact from Myth follows the rumors of the mythical city of Rapture, where we'll be going again for the Burial At Sea DLC. This video didn't grab me as much as the first ones, but then I already know what Rapture is like, and I already know that Booker and Elizabeth will be going there. Still, it's a nice little tease for the DLC that should be out this holiday season.

"BioShock Infinite is a first person shooter where players assume the role of former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt who is sent to the flying city of Columbia on a rescue mission to save Elizabeth, who has been imprisoned since childhood. Through the powerful bond they form, Booker is able to augment his own abilities with her world-altering control over the environment."

This upcoming Bioshock Infinate DLC looks awesome but can some explain to me how Booker and Elizabeth show up in Rapture? Unless its spoiler territory I am curious what your thoughts are.

This is one of my favorite fan dubs ever. How Elizabeth would react to you being a moron in Bioshock Infinite. No real spoilers in this, so feel free to watch while preserving your ignorance!

After days of work, hours of frustration, and a rage that very nearly claimed a controller, I claimed the 'Scavenger Hunt' achievement in Bioshock Infinite. For those of you not in the know, the parameters of this particular achievement are as follows:

1) Beat the game on the hardest difficulty, which includes a hundred dollar charge per continue. no money, no more game. You have to reload at your last checkpoint.
2) Not spend any money at a Dollar Bill machine. While this may not seem like a big deal, health, ammo, and salts (Which is basically your mana) are at a serious premium in 1999 mode, and these machines are basically the only easy source, outside of... Read All

Doom: The Board Game is my favoriate board game of all time. So when I saw Plaid Hat Game's upcoming Bioshock Infinite: The Siege of Columbia I was pretty interested. The goal of the game is to build an army to fight booker for ultimate control of Columbia. It looks like you and the other players can have control of Elizabeth in some fashion but the details are a bit sparse as of now.

The game pieces and overall build look fantastic to me. I imagine ill see this in my local game store pretty soon and want to give it a shot when it does.

Have you picked up a board game for a video game before? If so how did it turn out for you? What do you think of Bioshock... Read All
