Bioshock Inifinite

There are a few things that I cannot wait for that are set to take place in 2012, #1: The 2012 Olympics, #2:  Finding out that the end of the world has not occurred and last but not least #3: The release of Bioshock Infinite. Okay, maybe it’s not on that same level, but I am looking forward to it tremendously. The trailer, which can be seen here, (on a side note, the “Literal Trailer” can be seen here) looks amazing.

 Continuing with the same type of graphics that were used in Bioshock one and two, they can be described as cartoonish to the point of realistic. I know, that sounds crazy, but after looking at the trailer I can say the colors are so amazingly well done that you begin to feel suddenly okay with the fact that for all intents and purposes the characters may as well be real people. The main characters have incredible back stories that give you just enough information to move onto the next point where you learn more of the past, or the problems that are occurring.

The story takes place in a city created by America, known as the Air City of Columbia, to prove that America thrives in exceptionalism.  The city consists of floating buildings, a rail for transporting goods, and people--individuals who have a different level of acceptance for other individuals. I say this because they seem to shoot at you almost instantaneously throughout the game. Notwithstanding the aforementioned fact, the city looks like any other early 1900s or late 1800s city, with the decorations and styles to boot.

Bioshock Infinite looks to be an amazing play, and if you can wait until 2012 I would highly recommend picking it up and paying attention to the storyline. While the gameplay looks amazing, the previous title’s story is just as good and gives you a reason to, well, keep on playing.
