Levine: Bioshock Infinite Is "Totally A Bioshock Game"

Bioshock and Bioshock 2 took place in an underwater city, populated by genetic mutations and robotic-humans who protected Little Sisters. The new Bioshock, Bioshock Infinite, takes place in a city in the clouds, and likely won't contain diving-suited Big Daddies or Little Sisters. So, what, exactly, makes it a Bioshock game? Ken Levine, the mastermind behind Biochock (but not Bioshock 2) explains:

The story is too old to be commented.

Of course it is. That's what you do, Ken. You know nothing else, you can do nothing else. Bio-shock is you and it's all you'll ever amount to doing in the video game industry. Ken Levine, man who hates and dogs and trashes other people's hard work from a developers point of view - not a consumers like Baltis does, is oblivious to the fact his games are just as boring and bland as all the other FPS that plague the world. I hate a lot of things, but I do it from a consumer point of view and because I've spent the money, my money, on the product first hand and am afforded that right if it disappoints.

At least infinite will showcase a new ideal that Bioshock's framework is quite known for. You have the basically laissez-faire capitalism of Rapture, which should've been heavily varied in Bio2 but just copied and renamed to a "tribute to Ryan". Infinite's actually bringing the new utopia under manifest destiny.

I was suprised when I recently found out who Columbia was. She's (the woman you see on the billboard in teaser) actually the mascot for manifest destiny. It'll be interesting to see how much religion plays a part in this considering that "manifest destiny" is basically considered a preversion of certain religous teachings, most notably The Bible.

Edit: I'm afraid parts of my 2nd paragraph may come off a bit misworded. I'm basically just interested to see how certain religions could play a part in Columbia IF they do at all.
