...and one about the variety of weapons and weapon mods.



Sorry I hijacked your Bioshock: Infinite thread, but you brought up a game I'm psyched about.  ;)

That grenade launcher is using bio grenades, which make a sticky surface that slows enemies down. There are also corrosive, fire, and radioactive grenades/weapons, and maybe others I'm not aware of. Sort of like an open world 3rd person Borderlands in some ways.

Anyway I'll stop promoting Defiance. It's not like I'm being paid.  ;)

Tis okay, I removed my deposit on BI and replaced it with Defiance. A console MMORPG is too intriguing!

Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

My cousin bought Bioshock Infinite today and I watched him play it. It seems at it's core to be a typical FPS but there are other elements that make it stand out. It looks great although it reminds me of a Disney movie. Acting is great. Story is compelling. In short, I don't think you would be wasting your money.

Yeah I bet it is very good. The original Bioshock is up there with my favorites of this generation so I definitely want to play the new one eventually. I can't afford to buy every new game I want so I had to make a hard choice between Tomb Raider, Bioshock: Infinite, and Defiance. I went with Defiance because it seemed different from the norm. Based on the beta I'm glad I did, but luckily one of my little brothers bought Tomb Raider and an old friend bought Bioshock: Infinite, so I'll borrow those from them later.  :D

I've found Bioshock to be pretty light on the machine. I've also found computers have dropped substantially in price so instead of paying a grand to make your pc 'better', you can spend such an amount for a great high end pc. A friend of mine picked up a brand new top end rig for around $950... Oh, and I live in Australia. The land where you usually get shafted in anything tech related.

That's a great idea. I am going to sit on BI until the price goes down because it sacrificed art and storyplay for a linear generic FPS gameplay (in which one is limited to two guns and two vigors). The first Bioshock remains untouched by its "sequel" and its "prequel".

Please post up a thread on Defiance and share your thoughts on it as it is now in stores today. I am 99% sure to get this game at the end of the month.

Well this thread got derailed a fair bit. :P

I really liked the game, though the first Bioshock is still my favourite. Infinite seems a bit short to me and I think they could have done more with the Vox. Perhaps the upcoming DLCs will expand on the setting more. Naturally Elizabeth is by far the best part of the game. Loved how she interacted with the environment on her own instead of just standing there as most companions in games do. She also saved my ass a few time in combat...though for her viewpoint this must have been the worst escort mission ever. :D I guess my biggest issue, aside from wishing the general setting was explored more, was that the various choices you make in the game don't seem to mean a damn thing. Which I guess given the ending fits in with the central theme.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

I'd agree that Bioshock is my fav.

Spolier Alert!

I know if you choose to not shoot the general guy he appears later in one of the cells.

Yeah heard that too. Also you get different dialog depending on what you do at the airship station. Still was expecting that it would be like the other Bioshocks in that your choices would have a larger impact and change what kind of ending you'd get.

I've not played the game yet but after seeing this video, I was sure that Elizabeth would be one of the best things about the game. You should enjoy it I would think.

I loved the first Bioshock, but there was a game-killing glitch which said my next objective was in a safe, however there was nothing in it.

Looking to FAQ's, it has happened to a few people. There was no way to backtrack and no way to progress.

That's when I put Bioshock down. Unfortunate, but I plan to play through them all in succession at some point - will make it more raw and rewarding (Similar with Mass Effect, Dead Space, and Assassins Creed).

P.S: The opening sequence of the original with the plane crash was awesome, and maxed out on computer in full HD, stunning! - the trailers for the new game are such a tease because I know I won't be playing it for a long time.

Bioshock is on my list will buy it in a few months so many games I want to buy at the moment spoilt for choice,

Definace show was good but people are slating the game due to graphics. But gameplay is good I think

Has anyone been playing DUST 514 Beta on ps3?

This year is a good year for PS3 releases looks like PS3 is going out with a bang!

This article hits the nail on the head as far as Bioshock: Infinite is concerned..

http://www.newstates...nite-bad-gaming

I'm a longtime Bioshock fan, just fyi. As far as Infinite goes, it's not that it was a bad game, it's just that it could have been SO much better. Every time I saw something iconic in the game, (handyman, songbird, etc) I would get pumped to finally interact with that character I'd seen in the trailers. Man those trailers had me pumped for a good year. What happened is that Levine rewrote everything 6 months before the final release date. That's why some things feel "not quite finished". Songbird was dialed back to about 3 encounters, none of which were especially interactive...man that was disappointing.

I think the article summed it up perfectly: "Everything takes place in a series of arena battles, with the plot occurring in the times between them."

So, CoD.

Just finished this today. Amazing ending. Felt like the middle was a little filler. Nothing like Bioshock however. Through and through that game was very close to perfect. The steam horses didn't play much of a part as well as the songbird as I expected from seeing the trailer. Actually a lot was different.
