Well then you have a difficult task to discover what you don't understand. If I was you I would take it tiny pieces at a time.

Don't get me started on the 19th century physics that you learn in school in the USA...

May I suggest a Coursera course on quantum physics. I have not taken it but there are people on forums there that could help you answer your questions.
https://www.coursera.org/course/eqp

Also I find the dummies books are awesome introducing basic information:

That's the problem, you have to ask the philosophers of science to see if it qualifies as science. Problem is that you have to be able to distinguish ideas that can be tested, even in principle only, from ones that cannot be tested even in principle. I think few would disagree that ideas that cannot even be tested in principle are science. At best I would call the ideas speculative and interesting mathematically but they got to come up with some predictions the ideas make and see if those predictions can be tested.

*Minor spoiler* The gist of the plot is what is called "the many world interpretation of quantum mechanics." It's not exactly fantasy rubbish. Additionally there is meaning in almost everything in the game which supports the plot and this is what sets it apart from other games.

The MWI is totally fantasy rubbish. It doesn't deserve to be taught as physics.
Currently it occupies a weird space in science because it has not been tested and may not even be testable in principal . It's an interesting possibility, an idea, where the math can work somewhat, that's the way I understand it.

For me bioshock infinite plot is a masterpiece of writing. Everything in the game is so chalk full of meaning which the designers actually intended and you don't have to read into it to discover it.

Problem with tomb raider is that the plot does not mesh well with a gameplay. Laura does not want to kill a deer for food, has a problem with violence against humans, and the next scene she's doing brutal executions as if it's gear of war. Makes no sense.

Unfortunately there is another controversy with the game. For the first time they have implemented a coolant feature (for those of you don't know, the reason you can't keep constantly shooting your weapons is because the generate heat, and heat will shut your mech down or cause it to take damage) that requires you to pay money for. Now there are other coolants that you do not have to pay money to buy. However the most effective coolant has to be bought with real money, there is no way to get it without paying real money.

This has people screaming "pay to win" and this is by definition pay to win when the best stuff can only be acquired with real money. There is only one item in the game so far, and hopefully they will reverse that decision and make it purchasable without using real money.

Community Representatives look out for the interests of the developer and publisher, first and foremost and player interests second. When those are at odds, it's clear whose interest they Community Representatives are going advocate.

I think they need to step back and reassess the whole "Merc Corps" fee.

My main problem with the game is the schizophrenic design. It is like the plot was written by one team, and the gameplay by another. I can't think of another situation that could explain the story showing Laura as a vulnerable figure who is reluctant to kill deer for food and then minutes later performing brutal executions of humans in the gameplay. It doesn't fit and it's too jarring for me to take the game seriously or enjoy it.

Support the guys who pay their own money to buy games, less chance that they are influenced by free stuff by the games they are reviewing.

By far the lamest teaser I have ever seen. Next time they should just have a crude stick figure drawing to top this video.

Okay so this is being designed for consoles. Strike one.
The character looks like a gothic Altair. Strike two.
The gameplay looks more action packed. Strike three.

I think games are not being designed for me tastes, I'm not the target demographic. What the fuck does a ragged half cape give you if you are trying to stay stealthy? It does nothing! So we have a character that is really an assassin who likes to steal on the side. I have low hopes.

The more painful to EA and their customers, the more likely a lesson will be learned. PC gamers stop buying online DRM schemes for single player games. Vote with your wallets.

Loved the fucked up setting of the first game. Going to love the setting in this one.
