Irrational Games announces that BioShock Infinite is gold, as Ken Levine says the console overlords have evaluated Irrational's shooter sequel, and deemed it fit for its planned release on March 26th. Irrational also offers a new "Lamb of Columbia" Trailer, described like so: "To clear his debt, Booker DeWitt must rescue a mysterious girl from the sky-city of Columbia. But who is this girl? What makes her so powerful, and why are so many willing to do anything to keep her from escaping? More importantly... what price will you pay to set her free?" Here's what Ken has to say about the new game:
Nobody has ever built a game quite like this. Itís a shooter, but a shooter that brings you to very uncomfortable and dangerous places. I canít demand that you play the game; I can promise you, however, that once you have, it will be an experience you wonít soon forget.
Who is Booker, and what is the debt that drives him to Columbia? What are Elizabethís powers and why has she been locked up since she was a child? Why does Booker have the letters ďADĒ branded into his right hand? And what, in Godís name, is the Songbird.
Columbia is a city teeming with mystery. Iím glad to say that one mystery is over: On March 26th, you will be able to play BioShock Infinite.

I told her maybe she should wait and check reviews first before buying it. She's like, "Nope, I don't care, I really enjoyed the first two and this one ties up the story, I'm going to play it good or bad."
So, should I play Bioshock 1 and 2? =P
I'd suggest you play Bioshock 1, but not 2. Bioshock 2 as a quickly developed moneygrab that 2K games farmed out to another developer. I guess that's what Irrational Games gets for creating a successful original IP in this day and age and not trying to milk it with an annual sequel.
But, Bioshock 1 was totally worth playing even now. The atmosphere, storyline and characters were all excellent. The gameplay was nothing special, but good enough.
