It *does* look a little more action-oriented, but I'm not bothered.
ziggurcat  +   1052d ago
it's a FPS, were you expecting it to be more RPG-oriented?
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   1052d ago
There's nothing wrong with an FPS-RPG. Look at Borderlands 2 for example.

If you ever have seen some of Bioshock's old trailers, the gameplay does look like a wacky shooter in a scifi world. But when you played the game, it was dark, it was full of wonder, it was scary and something original and amazing. I think Bioshock just doesn't do trailers that reflect the story the way the game really is. But that is awesome because I want to go in Infinite, as I did the first 2, without any clue what I am about to experience.

The first BioShock was an amazing piece of art that I played through twice, while the second one was a FPS that I couldn't wait to be done with.
Conzul  +   1052d ago
Well said Mate!

Also, I hope it lets us keep all our stats and powerups for the second playthrough. I always wanted to play the original Bioshocks with all my tonics and upgrades in place. Was so sad when I couldn't.

They should have opted with two discs on the 360. Who doesn't like better textures?
Hope bluray is used wisely.

Textures aren't as big on consoles, that's why it's only one disc, PS3 version will probably have better audio and video.
Genuine-User  +   1053d ago
I hope so too.
Perjoss  +   1052d ago
Since when do multiplat games look better on ps3? isn't it usually the other way around? regardless of disc size and processor power.
Norrison  +   1052d ago
Audio and video are always better on ps3 since the disc size allows uncompressed files

So many great games and next gen consoles not even here yet..

Anyway pc version is dx11 maybe that is why.

1 disc on console (of course it's 1 disc on PS3) and 3 discs on PC? I wonder why it's 3 discs on PC. Sure it'll have higher resolution textures but does it make that much of a difference?
pr0digyZA  +   1053d ago
So far its confirmed that there are higher res textures, dx11 and some extra effects that aren't on consoles. If I had to go further I am hoping for uncompressed video and sound.

Finally, something we can all agree on. And not in the over-used slutty way, which is a credit to Ken Levine and Irrational.

Day 1 buy for me. I, like many others, don't buy too many games day 1. But ask yourself this; Can you afford for the ending to be spoiled??
THAT is why I am getting it day 1. Looks absolutely amazing so far. Irrational is one of the few elite developers I respect and support.

Looks sort of like Katy Perry,big boobs,narrow jaw, big eyes.

"PC version will support both DX10 and DX11, as well as a FOV slider!"

Its pretty sad when you actually have to ask/hope for these features.
jaymart2k  +   1053d ago
Seems not worth it. No matter how good it may be. $60 for 8 hrs worth of content is just lacking compared to games that pack longer campaigns, not to mention the multiplayer some contain.
Ravenor  +   1053d ago
And the length of the average story oriented shooter is! 6-8 hours. The length of the game is fine, and if the price is an issue for you than just wait until the game goes on sale or hits a price drop.

And for the love of Jebus, multiplayer isn't really value added. I bought Spec Ops The Line and never touched the multiplayer, what's the point of wasting my time on half baked MP?
GusBricker  +   1053d ago
You beat Bioshock in 8 hours?

I think I spent a good 15+ on that game.
yeahokchief  +   1053d ago
I just hope I can get all of the trophies done in 1 playthrough in Infinite like I did with Bioshock 1.

As much as this game will be worth a second playthrough, I've got too many games to be replaying every one of them for trophies.
Bladesfist  +   1053d ago
Then don't replay it for trophies
Ravenor  +   1053d ago
It varies, you can definitely beat Bioshock in no time if you know where you are going and don't explore.

I'm sure this will work just like that game where my time played is greatly inflated because I spent a bunch of time just farting around.

*edit*Regarding the game’s length, Levine said that the game is on par with first Bioshock game. Or for him at least.

That's from the article, so I really don't see what we have to worry about!

One of the few games im still excited for... I platinumed bioshock 1 &2 ... Gonna platinum this one too..
BanBrother  +   1053d ago
Platinumed Bioshock 2? So did I. Turret hacking O.o ???

The first was amazing. The second was pretty darn good. Can't wait for another Irrational one though.

I hope the amazing ending to Bioshock Infinite Ken was talking about somehow ties the Infinite Universe into the Original rapture one, despite saying that they aren't supposed to be in the same universe when the game was first announced.
BeardedPriest  +   1052d ago
I think both are amazing.... some people didn't like number two... I cant really see why... I may like part 1 more though... I cant really see the reason for that either...
Sevir  +   1052d ago
lol, Bioshock:Infinite is a reimagination of Bioshock.
When Ken Wrote the Story for Bioshock, there was no direct sequel, it was a spiritual successor to System Shock. And the same is true for Bioshock:Infinite,

this is why people came away with Bioshock 2 as little more of an unnecessary sequel to a story that was already closed.

I can't wait for Bioshock:Infinite it really looks amazing, the color pallete and graphics are definately amongst the best, hard to believe the UE3 is still able to keep with console exclusive like Halo 4 and The Last of Us.
