BioShock: Infinite  



Elizabeth stops being polite, and starts being real


10:30 PM on 05.07.2013



Bioshock Infinite has been out for a little while now. The spoiler police are starting to doze off at their posts. The game's harshest critics and most passionate fans have seemingly declared a temporary cease fire (at least until the first DLC comes out). It is a time of peace, which makes it a perfect time for a loving mockery from Machinima.

The dynamic, emotionally evocative relationship the player forms with Elizabeth is one of Bioshock Infinite's biggest selling points. That said, Elizabeth's reactions to the player's action often only make sense within the confines of Infinite's particular brand of videogame logic. This video shows us what the game might be like if she reacted more "realistically" to witnessing her partner in the most important event of her entire life run headlong into a biological weapon hurling fireballs at his head.

Would Bioshock Infinite have seemed more believable if it employed this brand of dialog?

Former BioShock devs doing BioShock-looking The Black Glove

The Black Glove. Huh, I'm into this weird thing. It's obviously reminiscent of BioShock, but the whole manipulating artists to change things sort of brings to mind this year's Ether One. Could turn out neat. Good job so...more

That BioShock teaser was an iOS port and it plays well (sort of)

That BioShock teaser from 2K? It's not a new BioShock game. It's the first one, but on Apple devices. Hence the apple in the tease. Clever. Who called it? This is basically a full port of the PC version of BioShock,...more
