BioShock Infinite Trailer

Irrational Games now offers Columbia: A Modern Day Icarus: Part 2, a continuation of the pseudo-documentary discussing the events surrounding the formation of the floating city of Columbia that serves as the setting for BioShock Infinite, the upcoming first-person shooter sequel. This touches on the legend of the "Songbird," and the sinister implications of it being the guardian of the "Lamb of Columbia," which may just end up playing into the game.

Bioshock was terrible and I will never forgive him for it, but please go on.

I can understand it not being your thing or being frustrated it wasn't up to snuff with his previous efforts but if you think Bioshock was a terrible game then you have never played a truly bad game.


I have to agree - I can see not liking it, but "terrible"? No...

I thought BioShock was pretty good.. The sequel was not quite as good but I still enjoyed it.

No one should.

Has Ken Levine put out a dud yet? I know he did Thief, System Shock 1 and 2 and BioShock and those were all really great.

Granted, watching the trailer makes me wonder if the actual game part can hold up, but it seems his track record is really good so far unless I'm forgetting some games.

Maybe the lousy ones fade away

what? System Shock 2 was the best game he has made.

I'm not too keen on this one though, I bought into the dark underwater atmosphere of Bioshock but the setting for this game just seems really off for some reason.

That's an interesting question! And while wikipedia isn't always the most accurate, it mentions he worked on a few games I either wasn't aware he did, or forgot about:

System Shock 2: lead writer and designer
Tribes: Vengeance : writer
SWAT 4 : executive producer


I thought Tribes Vengeance was pretty good. Never heard of the other one, though.

I like their attempts at creating a unique mythology for the game.

Sorry to completely change subject/game here: Did you get around to loading up FO3 yet with some of those good mods? I haven't finished the game yet, but it has easily moved into my Top 5 all time favorite games.


Actually, not yet. Work got crazy, and with all the drama around GPG, I got re-addicted to SupCom. After my experience with Oblivion mods, I wouldn't play FO3 without them!

My concern is that the game is going to be too linear and restrictive, especially after playing games like Dishonored, Far Cry 3 and Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It certainly doesn't look as bad as ACM - which looked terrible in the preview videos - but I'll wait for reviews, more gameplay videos and user opinions before decided whether it's worth buying.

At least the PC version seems to be being taken seriously, as it includes high resolution textures, a FOV slider, anti-aliasing, ambient occlusion, etc.
