The lights are on
With BioShock Infinite, the team at Irrational Games wanted to deliver more enemy variety than they did with BioShock. In a new series of videos, creative director Ken Levine and the gang debut the new heavy hitters, minibosses of sorts designed to keep players on their toes. First up is the Motorized Patriot, an automaton with a familiar face and a deadly will.
The Motorized Patriot is a nightmarish version of George Washington with a Gatling gun. The Founders' automaton, described by Irrational as "a clockwork Terminator" certainly lives up to that description. Unlike other enemies in the game, this machine doesn't have any sense of fear or self-preservation. It will relentlessly attack until it is blown into a pile of smoldering junk. Take a look at it in action below.
Look for BioShock Infinite on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 16. For more information on the game, visit our hub page.

well thats one way to show you how great and powerful of a president George Washington was.
My word, that guy is terrifying! I actually got freaked out just during the first little clip.
I'm throwing money at the screen but nothing is happening.
THis is gonna be great!
Washington, Washington... 6 foot 8, weighs a *** ton. Opponents beware. Opponents beware. He's coming, he's coming, he's coming.
Jeez and I though big daddys were creepy!
Huh. Is 2012 the year of American Revolutionary War themes in gaming(AC3; Bioshock Infinite)? I guess two examples is not a trend, but it did pop into my mind just now.
I like it for some reason. I cannot think of any A-list games set in this time period.
yep....after ME3 this was most anticipated game.....getting more excited now that we are actually seeing trailers and more info on the game
