MMORPG Info Logo Bioshock Infinite

In March, Wukung gave BioShock 2 an 8/10 rating despite the fact that the story wasn’t as strong as the original game. The third game in the series, Bioshock Infinite, looks like it is going to rectify this by moving outside of the timeline. In Bioshock Infinite you step back into time to the air-city Columbia in 1912.

The floating city of Columbia seems the polar opposite of Bioshock’s Rapture. Obviously, it’s floating as opposed to sunken under the sea, but it’s also a city that is obviously in good repair (at least in the trailer) and functioning. Rapture is more like a tomb, waiting to be washed away. Where Rapture was started by a single individual, there is a definite theme of collectivism/Nationalism in Columbia, as evidenced by the American flags everywhere and the red, white and blue bunting. Overall, it seems like a cautionary tale of American Exceptionalism run amok.

Curious to see what BioShock Infinite is going to look like? Here’s a detailed demo from Irrational Games that was posted on IGN:

    Hey,

    I thought both you and your readers might be interested in receiving free copy of Dead Rising 2. Here’s the story.
    I found a site – http://www.deadrising2forfree.info (i believed was a total nonsense, because everybody knows you’ll find nothing “free” and I saw this type of websites before a lot), I made a decision to give it a try and clicked through, followed on-screen instructions – and here I am three weeks later with my brand-new shiny piece of plastic – Dead Rising 2 unboxed!

    Now get there and try it out yourself.

    Hope I added some value to your website and someone gets as lucky as me!
