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.

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.
