This game looks really great but despite enjoying BioShock 1 I just couldn't get into BioShock 2, I'm about 2-3 hours into that game and can't bring myself to play much more. I just think the magic of Rapture as a setting wore off. I guess the fact that this game is in such a radically different setting should make me more excited for it.

Bioshock blew my mind. Bioshock 2 had some cool gameplay but the story was not as strong imho. Now that Ken Levine and company are doing Infinite I have to get this game.

While I loved them both, setting and story wise, I will say that the drill and the dual wielding of plasmids and guns made the game MUCH better gameplay wise. The shooting gameplay in the first was the reason I didn't play it for years, but the second fixed that with those additions.

I didn't think the story in the second was anywhere near as good, but then again that's holding it to a very high standard.

I'm kind of disappointed that you seem to be more of a regular schmuck type guy rather than someone with connections to this place, but we'll see how that plays out or if it's even true.

My old list of pros and cons for Bioshock 2.

Spoiler:
 

Several technical improvements, some odd choices. And the story was messed with late in development.
It was still fun, but the story wasn't on par with the original.

I just read that review and it seems IGN likes it, the 9.4 score is an excellent one. Funny how it mentions that both consoles are getting a somewhat downgraded versions graphics versions and the PC game play might be more fluid in addition to looking better. I've been waiting for this game a while and put off getting into some other games I would like recently like Tomb Raider just so I could jump right into BI I really hope its worth it.

Bioshock Infinite has been delayed again by a month to March 26, 2013. Extra time for polish they say.

Also some sad news. Apparently the game will only include the original Bioshock in North America. Not sure what, if anything, they'll do to make up for it elsewhere.

What's bad about that? Also, is it a digital copy, or on-disc?

I probably won't be picking this up immediately, but I'm semi-interested in playing it. The inclusion of the first Bioshock and the exclusion of multiplayer added to my interest. Thinking

What do you mean what's bad about that ?, it means people in the U.S get a free game while everyone else doesn't (on PS3) .

Oh, I see what you mean now. I thought he was just saying it was a bad thing that Bioshock was included instead of some other item, or something like that. My bad. Embarassed

LOLZ ! I'm the one who said that ! Over 4 Million copies of the original Bioshcok sold.... how many Bioshock Infinite byers will already own the original ??

I say double MEH ! Give me some cool Juicy Columbia stuff instead.

Yeah, a lot of the Bioshock Infinite buyers will have likely bought the first one, but it's still a nice thing to have for people that are barely jumping in.

I see there's already a season pass for DLC. There's going to be expansions to the story?

Yes I hate having old material rehashed and rereleased as a big bonus. Uncharted 3 "new" MP maps for example irked me to no end. In any event if there are players who get to experience Bioshock for the first time thats great, I think every PS3 owner should play it .. There will be a season pass DLC going on sale the day of release. Its one of those "get $30 of DLC for $20 deals" Reviews should start being released today and tonite. IGN had the "exclusive" early review rights, other sources say they were provided copies but not the right to release their reviews til the game was out. I've ordered the game already and it is on its way but I do have to admit that "review embargoes" scare me

I just pre-ordered... I wasn't going to BUT....
I had $25 in reward zone certificates.
AND.... If I pre-order it I get another $20 reward zone certificate. so it's like getting it for $15
AND since today was still considered pre-ordering it... I did it.

The short of it is that the game gets a 5...out of 5.

If I didn't already think it looked amazing, I would after seeing this review. Tomorrow can't come soon enough.

Well done ! Here's my Amazon receipt for BI
Item(s) Subtotal: $59.99
Shipping & Handling: $0.00
Promotion Applied: -$3.00
-----
Total before tax: $56.99
Sales Tax: $0.00
Rewards Points: $56.99
-----
Total for This Shipment: $0.00

Game Informer just gave Bioshock Infinite a 10 out of 10 ! I'm happy its garnering raves, so many unreviewed hyped games get a lot of pre-orders and then the crappy reviews start pouring in. I had faith in Ken Levine and company but you never can tell. Thats why I got the game for "free"

In North America that's included on the disc version too.

If you are getting this game by PC download today shop around Amazon offers........ Purchase "BioShock Infinite" and Pre-load Now + get "XCOM: Enemy Unknown" Free + $30 2K Games Credit + "BioShock Infinite: Mind in Revolt" for Kindle + "Industrial Revolution Pack"

Im not sure what other outlets are doing but the competition is fierce for PC downloads. Wish it was that way for consoles.

I noticed in Sesslers review that the spiritual song being sung seemed to be CCR's "Fortunate Son" . I hope they tell us why Elizabeth's right pinky is a nub with a sewing thimble on it. Did the songbird bite it off ?? Gamespot gives it a 9/10.....

Unless you alter the release dates (like Gearbox does), Australasia gets every game first.
Down here in NZ, we were technically the first to get our hands on Black Ops 2.

Regrading BioShock Infinite I noticed that it's garnering universal critical acclaim, really glad we have a game that seems to live up to the hype.
