The lights are on
Irrational Games has released the latest in its series of Heavy Hitters videos, introducing us all to the Siren enemy type. As the team explains in the clip, she's a throwback to when the term "spiritual" meant something a bit different than what it does now.
This former singer has the unnerving ability to raise the dead with her songs. As creative director Ken Levine explains, this creates a bit of a challenge for both Booker and the player: Do you focus your attention on the Siren, because putting her down also instantly kills her minions (again), or do you worry about the guys who are actually attacking you? All we know for certain at this point is that her "song" isn't anything you're going to enjoy.
If you haven't been keeping up with this video series, there's plenty of time to catch up before the game's October 16 release. The Boys of Silence keep Columbia on high alert, the Handymen have giant fists and plenty of pep in their step, and the Motorized Patriots are about the creepiest robotic George Washingtons you're ever likely to see.

this is gonna be so cool
Suprising to no one, Irrational Games has once again hit it out of the park or ball field or whatever. This game couldn't stop looking better and better if it tried.
This just looks so amazing. October is so far away, I need this now!!
meh...i can wait.
Interesting. I'm not sure how this enemy type itself could tie into the story, but I love how the choice it presents ties back into its early-20th century political themes! =D
cool beans man
C'mon October! ... The more I see and read about Bioshock Infinite, the more I can't wait for it to be here. .. However, it does seem a bit overwhelming to play, but I still can't wait! Bring it on!
"All we know for certain at this point is that her "song" isn't anything you're going to enjoy." - I already know I'm gonna be annoyed by it (but not just because of what it does, it sounds horrible too) :P
As long as it isn't as annoying as the security bots in Bioshock 1 and 2 then I'm fine. It got to a point where I started muting my volume everytime they showed up. It wasn't terrifying, or nerve racking or startling. It was just plain irritating.
