Secrets and Insight: Bioshock Infinite Gameplay Trailer

With the preemptive leak of the Bioshock: Infinite gameplay footage seen for the first time almost a month ago at a press conference in New York, gamers are even more curious to know just what it means. There's the obvious: Raven Tonic is like a plasmid, the sky-hooks allow for quick aerial transportation and combat, and conflict between isolationist and internationalist policies lies at the heart of the war over the city in the sky, Columbia. But as with most first gameplay reveals, more can be gleaned by paying close attention to detail in the footage and then making some educated inferences. So what secrets does Columbia hold, and what can be expected from a game that appears to share only a few choice similarities with its predecessor? Let's find out.

I don't know about any of you, but BioShock Infinite, to me, looks to wipe the floor clean of GotY awards when it releases. This gameplay is AMAZING.

Ahahaha. AHAHAhaha. AHAHAHAHAHA...No.

Dont forget the other competitors such as Dead Space 2, Arkham City, Killzone 3, Resistance 3, The Last Guardian, and Infamous 2.

Dead Space 2 - Will have a mild, possibly good, but not great story (multiplayer has been tacked onto it, single player will suffer).

Arkham City - Same prediction as Dead Space 2, except it will most likely have a good story, rather than decent. Also, keep in mind that not everybody loves batman.

Killzone 3 - Good gameplay, good graphics, amazing multiplayer, weak and cheesy story (if it's anything like Killzone 2, it will be).

Resistance 3 - Well, I personally have nothing bad to say about this for two reasons: one, I f*cking love Resistance (story, multiplayer, gameplay, co op, and even the graphics), and reason #2, I can't say anything bad about it because all that's been shown is a teaser trailer (which looked awesome).

The Last Guardian - Okay, this one has a strong possibility of being better than Bioshock Infinite, but it's too early to judge and would be foolish to do so. (the characteristics are the same as mentioned below for Bioshock Infinite, amazing graphics, amazing art style, amazing story, great replayability and a great emotional connection).

inFamous 2 - Good story, great gameplay, amazing graphics, and probably a lot of replayability.

Now, for Bioshock Infinite's characteristics (which if Bishock 1 is anything to go by, are going to be incredibly accurate):

Bioshock Infinite: Amazing graphics, amazing art style, amazing story, amazing gameplay, great replayability, something new and fresh that hasn't been seen before (a falling city in the sky with dynamic environments and tons of awesome ways to kill enemies), and a great emotional experience.

So really, Bioshock Infinite really is only competing with The Last Guardian for game of the year (actually it comes out in 2012, so it's not really competing, but I'm saying this as if it was coming out the same year as the Last Guardian).

I personally haven't made up my mind as to which I will like more, because it's a tough choice for me seeing as Bioshock 1 was my favorite story based game I've ever played, but I personally think I will enjoy Bioshock Infinite more if I really had to take a guess.

This is all based on past history though, so nothing is set in stone, but it is a strong indication of what's to come (it's not often that good developers pull off a revolutionary experience, based on the history of gaming).

What I don't understand is why did they release gameplay footage this early? It doesn't come out till 2012!!!

I'm only pissed because I don't want to wait 2 years, I want the game now! Please? :(
