Check it out!!! BioShock Infinite
It LOOKS neat, but I'm concerned about the storyline. The 2nd one, IMHO, wasnt as good as the first. Granted, they make gorgeous games, but its not all about graphics. It needs to immerse me into the story.
Of course, I'll be preordering soon.
OMG I am so excited already, I thought both 1 & 2 were amazing (actually liked the second better). I really am glad they are continuing the franchise.
BioShock 1 and 2 were developed by 2 different studios. Plus, Ken Levine is credited with the creation of Rapture and the majority of the success of the first game, and he's in charge of BioShock Infinite! So I've got really high hopes for this! Too bad we're gonna have to wait til 2012. Hopefully it comes out before the world ends! :?
I really like the 2nd one, too! I think it was a great sequel. I think the reason many people didn't cuz you didn't have the lost and vulnerable feeling that made the first one so great! For me, the urge to explore and discover was still there, but I wasn't constantly scared of what I might find.
Yup, it popped up on twitter and it immediately caught my eye. Looks good!
I agree Bronco, from reading comments and reviews I've come to the conclusion that most of the dislike for the second one was because it didn't have the same "shock and awe" feature as the first one. But the first only had that because it didn't have one before it.
As far as gameplay, atmosphere, and overall fun i think the second just improved on everything that existed. I will agree that the first had a better story, but that doesn't mean the second didn't have a great one as well.
Wow. I was a big fan of Bioshock 1, Bioshock 2 was not as good but I did like the multiplayer.
Bioshock 2 didn't have the atmosphere that Bioshock 1 had and didn't have a good story, The gameplay was improved but there was less weapons.
To me Bioshock has been about the story and atmosphere.
I'm gonna get this for sure. I like the idea of a city in the sky though I think they should have used a different name for the title, SystemShock was in space and Bioshock was under water I think this one should be called something other than Bioshock Infinite.
Unfortunately its all about marketing. >_>
i enjoyed both.. the only thing that got me to trade in my copy of number 2 was playing MW2 for a week with friends, i went back to bioschocks multiplayer and was appalled by the comparisons.
Odly enough this is actually set within the bioshock universe and from the gamesradar preview demo they do actually use plasmids of a kind... Although it's set before 1950 when rapture was created/sea slugs so im puzzled as to how the will pull this off...
But yes i'm very excited I really like the look of the american revolution art style too.
