Re: BioShock: Infinite announced

I liked Bioshock a lot. I didn't even play the second one because I figured it would be a remake for no reason but to cash in on the success of the first.

This one, however, looks pretty cool to me. I like the change of scenery, and it looks like it may have a very different mood from the first game.

I'll at least download a demo or something.

It takes place in the floating city of Columbia, in stead of Rapture.

Re: BioShock: Infinite announced

I never saw the appeal in BioShock in the first place, just doesn't seem interesting to me.

Re: BioShock: Infinite announced

I loved the BioShock series. The first was amazing, the second was okay, but this one looks great. I like the change of scenery. I have high hopes for this game

Re: BioShock: Infinite announced

You have to make money somehow. Plus it is just a sub-par game series, why would it matter if they changed the scenery from generic city A, to a floating city.

How you gonna talk mess on a game that just a post ago you said you weren't interested in and therefore probably never played?

The first Bioshock is awesome. It's all about the scenery, the mood and the story. The shooting is very dated, but it isn't really the point of the game. And the scenery, mood and story are all REALLY awesome.

Oh, and Rapture is not generic. It's super spooky and cool.

Please, Irrational Games could make millions off another System Shock game, I don't think that they NEED the money for it.

Yeah, but the appeal is in the story. It's like playing Metal Gear Solid for an hour. You aren't experiencing what everyone loves about the game.

Of course if the environment and spookiness of Rapture didn't engross you enough to want to continue playing, that's fine. But it's far from generic.

Re: BioShock: Infinite announced

Yeah, what I got of the story was decent, but Rapture just didn't draw me in quite like I had hoped. So is playing Bioshock for an hour really like playing Metal Gear Solid for an hour and not getting the story? Is the story really that engrossing? If so, I think I'll give Bioshock a second chance.

Re: BioShock: Infinite announced

Yeah, I think the story is that engrossing. It's not told in the same way as Metal Gear Solid through cut scenes. More through audio logs and environmental stuff. And if you have gotten this far in your life without hearing how it ends, the ending is pretty good.

Re: BioShock: Infinite announced

Yep, the story is pretty engrossing. It may not seem like that at first, but it does get more engrossing as you go on. BioShock is one of my favorite games because of that reason. Audio Logs are cool, because when you pick them up, they're most likely made by the person who is dead right next to it :P
