Bioshock Infinite:

At least it's better than the other way around.

This is true. Section8 severely disappointed me when it turned out to be a multiplayer game with a crap single-player story slapped together.
Very big Daydream Believer.

Great. ANOTHER single-player experience that will no doubt end up having resources taken away by some tacked on cash cow multiplayer. Shame on you, Levine.

Dang, Inside Gaming Daily was right.

...I wonder what kind of Multiplayer it will be, though.

Hey come on guys. It's just a rumour! There's no confirmation yet! Holding out that it IS a rumour though.

Oh, why not just use a single-player pass, why bother doing multiplayer. (If this is true and actually used game motivated.)

That would be true only if they didn't change the release date. 2K Games is PAYING them to add multiplayer.

This isn't EA or Activision. Did multiplayer ruin Red Dead Redemption?

This is also Irrational. Unless you don't trust Ken Levine.

I guess. I just prefer devs to focus on singleplayer.

I'm interested in the original Bioshucks people trying a form of multiplayer. And the Singleplayer looks extremely promising as is, so I don't think Multiplayer will detract from that.

I was initially frustrated with the delay, but I realize now that I can afford Assassins Creed III and Tekken Tag Tournament 2. So, in my personal case, it's for the best.

Still hyped to high heaven.

I like the idea of multiplayer Bioshock.

Just sayin'.

And the point about release date is a good one. If multiplayer were tacked on without additional development time, then we would indeed end up disappointed. But the delay is because they want to work on the multiplayer.

It's unclear
Perso, I prefer companies to take as much time as they need to finish their game. Mankind can do awesome things under pressure, but sometimes a couple more months comes in handy.
Wild Hunts are really healthy for you. You could use some marathoning.
Why would I write that?
Alright. I don't think I could handle all these games coming out at once, this is easier to digest. Until E3 announces a thousand other games coming out late this year and early next year.

Well, I'm thinking about the rollercoaster battles you have in Infinite... imagine multiplayer.

Hey, remember this game? Well, it looks there have been some problems:

...while employee restructuring and lack of info is never a good sign, I am pretty glad they decided to ditch multiplayer.

Observations:

1) I guess they couldn't resist giving a few nods to the original: the lighthouse, the wooded area with the weird pagan-esque enemies (that guy with the coffin chained to his back looked like a fugitive from Painkiller). I guess the beach could also be an Arcadia analogue in the "This thing shouldn't exist!" department (from "forest under the sea" to "beach in the sky").

2) Speaking of coffin guy, nice to see there's some variety in the enemies.

Still pretty excited!

I'm excited. I worry about its political content — just how critical can it be of American foreign policy can it be given the conservative games market? and the revolution = corruption angle seems contradictory to the point of satire, and a very dirty cliché besides — but it is exciting.

Lots of bloom though.

The Fire "plasmid" is back.

PS. Troy Baker as Booker is fine - he's a bit angrier and rougher than Stephen Russell, but I'd have felt funny with Stephen in, since he sounded exactly like Garrett.

Some of those tonic activations look pretty painful.

I don't think the games market is generally conservative, in terms of Consumers or Producers, i'd say both at least lean liberal overall. :/ But that's a whole different discussion.

Cool trailer I guess, but it still feels ages away.

[up][up][up] Troy Baker makes any character better. tongue

Also, that trailer is fricken amazing. I had almost completely forgotten about the game until now, and this game, along with Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, is going to make February an amazing month.

Its vast output speaks otherwise.

I dunno... I assume you mean the popularity of stuff like Call of Duty and the Tom Clancy verse, right? But in those cases isn't it more of the industry choosing scenarios that lend well to being adapted to games which then HAPPEN to coincide with conservative values and thus the people who buy them for the gameplay aren't necessarily aligned with those views? For example, consider the myriad articles that claim that the Iron Man movies are a conservative/libertarian wet dream. I recognize that in a way, said articles might have a point. Yet I'm pretty sure the movies' fanbase isn't mostly conservative. Again, this discussion could probably warrant it's own thread. But this is just my two cents in case it doesn't go any further. Hope that wasn't too confusing.
