Not sure how DLC is going to work with this game? It's not open-world and once you're done, you're done. I guess they can handle it like DX:HR did, with the DLC essentially being a separate campaign.
Or handle it like the previous bioshock game, where they added an extra section in the gameworld and some extra weapons/gear stuff.

Except unlike Bioshock, you can't backtrack to previous areas (as far as I can tell). Progression is strictly linear.

Oh this workday can't end sooner! I can't wait to play. I'm concerned about some microstuttering issues ppl are talking about in the steam forum. I hope my system cooperates.
Microstuttering is typically from SLI or xfire setups, and xfire is generally hit far worse than this due to nvidia spending a lot of resources optimizing hardware and software for SLI.

You can travel back slowly to open safes etc but yeah it will be interesting how DLC will be implemented into this game

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

Edit: One major complaint. No save button, just "checkpoints". Really? REALLY? My F5 button is getting cold.
Yeah that's my major complaint, it's damn fun though. So far I don't have any major complaints it's a solid game so far. Hell of a lot darker than the last two, I'm almost 3hrs in now.

Put in 20 min before bed. Definitely a Bioshock game, feels like one and looks like one. Man that was a great intro, clearly a copy of Bioshock 1 but the new environment sells it. Great art style, obviously held back by consoles but they still bolted on some nice PC features. I would have loved to see this game with a PC or next-gen console as the foundation instead, pity. Alt-tab works well, very little screen tearing. Got a weird sound issue on my end, almost sounds hollow like too much sound is coming out the front speaker. Still has surround sound but something just sounds off. Otherwise so far so good.

this is what is meant by triple A! attention to detail, combat, narrative and gorgeous graphics! It runs super smooth on ultra with old-gen 5870 in full 19x1200 - superb!

Blue,
I think you mistakenly buried a hidden AC4 trailer in this story

Looks like that browser based game does NOT change any in game faction stuff (someone commented about that earlier). The reason? The bioshock unlock code is given to you way before the end of the browser game. Mine was given after just a few levels.

All it does is change your facebook avatar pack at the 59th level. No need to play that far though. You can unlock the in-game items after just a few minutes of play.

Here's all the solutions if anyone wants

The in game things this gives you:
500 in game currency
5 lockpicks
gear: handyman nemesis (more damage vs handymen)
gear: sugar rush (move faster after eating)
gear: fleet feet (move faster while backing up or sidestepping)

More than likely, you can also sell the browser game pre-order code on ebay for another $5-$10 to people who want a complete thing, but don't want to pre-order.

You have to redeem the Industrial Revolution pre-order code on the Fink Manufacturing web-site however to get another code which you can then redeem in Steam for some pre-order items.
Yes, and I'm saying that one could sell either one of those codes on ebay if they didn't care about the bonus, in order to get the cheapest possible price for the game.

By rebate I meant, I'm going to pay 10$ for it... I already own xcom.

What's the suggestion if you already own XCOM and previous Bioshock titles?
GMG. You get $14 automatically back in a few days to start with which brings it down to $46.
Then you have the 3 games (I'm pretty sure each is a separate steam code), which you can then sell or trade for things you don't have.

Bioshock was/is a great game, but the end boss wasn't the best in the world.

That being said Infinite is the polar opposite of the first game. I've been keeping clear of most info but already had a few 'oh wow' moments with the story telling.
Also getting a little queezy from the buildings always floating/moving, and typically I don't have any sorta problem with anything related.
