The first minutes of BioShock Infinite

The first minutes of BioShock Infinite

Spoilers ahead! The following video is the first five minutes of BioShock Infinite so you better think twice before playing it. It certainly looks great but we can only advise you to not watch it if you planned to discover the beginning of the game on March 26th.

Much better than BioShock 1 opening. :)

Marvelous intro!

Love the time setting, atmosphere and the vibe somehing that Bioshock had as well.

Only thing I hope is they polished the hell out of the gunplay mechanic this time. But I will definitely play this.

Not gonna look because i absolutely loved the beginning of the first game!
Commented on 2012-12-19 17:15:59
No way I am looking. I am looking forward to the game though.
Commented on 2012-12-19 17:26:54
Yep. Not watching. I've seen enough to know this is a buy buy buy.
Commented on 2012-12-19 18:09:24
That has to be Pc footage right? looks great.

I honestly don't get it why people would even watch this. With alot of games, especially this one..the intro is something special. It gives you that 'wow' feeling, element of surprise and what not. Ah well...whatever.

Infinite doesn't even have a Villan shown like A. Ryan.

and going by the great ammount of AA, this is PC footage, most certain.

I watched in an attempt to erase the less then impressive VGA footage from my mind. And it kinda did. Very similar to bioshock 1s opening. Could do with seeing some more of the main combat though.

Yeah PC footage played with 360 pad by the looks of it.

I rather see what i buy then get screwed up .
And its not like you reading the manuscript or something. It is only the INTRO.
And what i honestly dont get is posting beneath a video you haven't watched.
What is next , writing reviews for games you haven''t played >_>.

Well a game is not just the beggining you know, I wanted so see some gameplay too.

Looks good! Some interesting dialogue there at the beginning.
The woman says a "One doesn't go into an experiment knowing one HAS failed", and then they say "He DOESN'T row".
Seems to imply that time travel is going to involved in the story, we already know that Elizabeth can manipulate time from that first gameplay demo.

I thought the quote at the beginning was interesting too "the mind will desperately try to make memories where non exist" (or something along those lines) could all be in his head?

You heard here first. Infinite is just the AAA copycat trying to reap on To The Moon laurels.

Its says underneath that quote "Barriers of trans-dimensional travel", so perhaps the beginning of the game is after Booker has traveled back in time and 'struggles' to remember what happened before, plays out the events of the game finds out that he's done it all before. BIG TWIST WOULD YOU KINDLY!

Or not.

Fantastic voice acting.
Commented on 2012-12-20 19:00:44
how can you add a spoilerish comment?
Commented on 2012-12-20 19:44:35
I wouldn't really call what was displayed "spoilers". I've seen more spoilers in any given trailer.

Great stuff.

More please.

Or better yet, shut up and take my money, now!
Commented on 2012-12-20 20:10:31
I can understand why people will watch this because I also want to. It's an important part of the experience though for me and so I wouldn't want to ruin that for the sake of seeing it early

Watch it guys, it doesn't show that much, to be honest.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (25 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (26 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (38 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (40 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (42 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I believe it has to do with the fact that there's too many games to play at the moment, and most of these new games ar very long. This is the week FF15 was just released, and WD2 on PC as well. (44 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Maybe, but I believe it would have become a kind of "cult-classic" niche game even if it failed to become a very huge success. Still, if a game like TF2 isn't succesful, it's a real shame. (45 minutes ago)
