The lights are on
Update: The video has been taken off of Youtube, but for all of you who missed it the first time, here it is again.
Original story: Before today, the only people who had seen BioShock Infinite in action were a handful of lucky press members and those who attended Game Informer's cover story panel at Penny Arcade Expo. But today Irrational released a 10-minute gameplay video on Xbox Live. That demo has found its way onto YouTube and, subsequently, our site. Check it out below.
THIS. IS. AWESOME!!!!!!!
I watched it via Xbox Live, and although it says "gameplay video" and everything, I still have trouble believing that what I just saw was an actual, interactive experience. It was just so amazing and incredible. If this game matches the flat-out awesomeness of what I just saw with a story that's even close to as great as the original Bioshock, it'll certainly be worthy of the series' name.
This looks awesome...
Wow. Just wow.
Love at first sight..
this game looks completely amazing! i wasnt really a big fan of the 1st two games but this looks like a total 1080 for the series, not just the setting but everything is stepped up ten-fold. great 2 look 4ward for a game in 2012 cuz 2011 is pretty much wrapped up with great games!
I dont know if words can describe how awesome that was. Ps3 fanboys be jealous.
simply amazing. cant wait to get my hands on a copy
Jaw dropping...2012 cannot come fast enough
Really can't say much more than that. Very impressive!
Holy Hell!! I'm sold, where do i write the check. This game is going to be awesome!!
If this is gameplay, then the gameplay is VERY cinematic.
Wow! I am as blown away as anyone else would be. That was actual gameplay? I mean, I can't even tell if any of those moments were scripted or not. The people of Columbia seem just as insane, if not more insane than the one's in rapture. I love it!
Holy *** this game is looking F-ING amazing! The guys at Irrational Games are brilliant. I cannot wait and I hope in some way that we don't have to wait until 2012 to play.
First two Bioshocks didn't interest me enough, but this one is a first day buy for me. Looks like it could be the best yet...
Is that Elizabeth using some vicious power, complete with dialogue, all for a circumstance CREATED by the player, and not scripted? Now THAT is awesome. It's like GTA how you can go around causing carnage whenever you want.
For years I haven't been sold on the "first-person is inherently more immersive" argument because it always came with a tradeoff of story. The player was always a blank slate, with no dialogue/real place in the world, just observing everything. This seems to strike the perfect balance. Absolutely cannot wait, and can't believe the game is that far along and still over a year off.
HOLY **** MY EYES JUST MELTED WITH HAPPINESS AND AMAZEMENT. OMFG THIS LOOKS INCREDIBLE!!!!!
FLYING BIG DADDIES! HOLY BOMBS.
OH MY GOD!!! How am i ever going to wait till 2012? So awesome!!!
Eh, it looks way too scripted. I hope I'm wrong.
