Wobble bass in full effect on GT TV. That's got to be a good sign.

Saw the 15 min gameplay demo on spike.....f**king amazing! Can't wait to get this game.

#7 Posted by mdub0814 (14 posts) -

That was a pretty impressive demo. It's not hard to see why people were gushing about it at E3.

#9 Posted by RockinKemosabe (619 posts) -

Shit, I know I understand why it basically won every E3 award.

I'm only seeing the interview that aired afterwards right now. Surely they'll be uploading it soon, they've got the scoop. Anyone got some other source to watch a rip or something? I need it now.

It's up now for anyone who was wondering.  Also... IF I SEE THE GODDAMN BLACK OPS MAP PACK COMMERCIAL AGAIN I SWEAR TO GOD

Just watched the 15 minute E3 demo. Yep i now understand why it won about every E3 award. Kinda at a loss for words.

Man next year is going to be amazing for gaming. Bioshock Infinite and Mass Effect 3. Simply can't wait.

#15 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6789 posts) -

Yeah, wow.  That was quite amazing.  I can not wait for this.

Holy. Fucking. Shit.

#17 Posted by BBQBram (2236 posts) -

Oh shit. It's 8:42 AM over here, my buddy was supposed to show up so we could watch the demo together (we're really hyped), but he's not showing and every minute it's getting harder not to watch. I'm giving him ten minutes then it's a free for all.

#18 Posted by Xpgamer7 (2382 posts) -

I don't want to watch it, just so I'll be more surprised when it does come out.

#19 Posted by Dany (7887 posts) -

Very exciting footage but whats more exciting are the options in the demo. Like Booke what if he didn't press A, or he didn't look at the statue, or he went another way or he didn't look at something.

Looks extremely interesting but still don't know how seamless the game play will be when I grab on to it.

Holy shit that looks pretty fucking amazing.       

#24 Posted by BBQBram (2236 posts) -

Just watched it. Fuuuuuuuu.....I have never been this excited for a game, and I hype myself up for shit all the time. I just know I'm going to love the gameplay but the world and the story is my real fascination.

I share this sentiment. Just freeze me like Cartman.

Apart from the terrible CoD map pack trailer, I'm pretty sure a portal to heaven opened up in my laptop. I hate everything about the way time flows currently, 2012 is too damn far away.

#26 Posted by golguin (3912 posts) -

It was pretty damn good. Fighting on those skylines is going to be hectic as hell.

I love the look on Elizabeth's face when Booker shouts down the Vox Populi.
 
She's like, "Booker, what the FUCK?!"

#28 Posted by billyhoush (1192 posts) -

Wow. After watching that now I get what the hype is all about. I'm dumbfounded by that demo. http://www.gametrailers.com/episode/gametrailers-tv/124?ep=124

If Jesus made a game it would be Bioshock Infinite. Think about it...

#30 Posted by Captain_Insano (1537 posts) -

I liked Bioshock but wasn't a massive fan.

Ken Levine can take my money right now though for this. That demo was amazing, I can't imagine how actually playing that quite works. I worry that my playthrough will be boring running along the ground regular shootin dudes.

#31 Posted by Cincaid (2956 posts) -

That was extraordinary. Though the comments on GameTrailers continue to amaze me how terrible some people out there are.

"lol that guy look like a 40 year old virgin fail lol" (referring to Ken Levine)

#32 Posted by coakroach (2490 posts) -

My only worry is that the first person character interaction and the skyrail system can be horribly broken if your as bad at shooters as I am

#33 Posted by TheSpartanDon (158 posts) -

That demo was pretty amazing...

I loved everything about it: the Character Development, the Gameplay, the Scenery...everything. I also noticed they added Iron Sights into the game, (similarly to BF or CoD) which gives me a lot of faith that the game will feel a bit more natural to play than original Bioshock game.

If I had to be nitpicky and call Irrational out on one thing...it's that Elizabeth is painted as the Stereotypical 'damsel in distress' almost too well. I'm pretty sure she cries 3 or 4 times in that demo. The only chance that we really get to a glimpse of her personality is in the Store at the beginning. But given the nature that this is an demo designed to show off all the games qualities, I doubt those 'emotional' scenes with Elizabeth will be as frequent in the actual game.

But all in all...

I'm now more hyped for this than Mass Effect 3...

#34 Posted by GioVANNI (1287 posts) -

Call me a natural skeptic, but I'm definitely not as impressed as everyone else seems to be.  Waiting to reveal it, though, was definitely a smooth move because it had me hyped to see what the hell this game even was.

Where can I catch a rerun of the demo?
