Let's All Watch BioShock Infinite's E3 Demo Together
While I think that this demo looks pretty good it was not jawdropping for me.
Graphics are competent but not outstanding eventhough I like the cartoonish look.
The shooting looks like in Bioshock which also means that I don´t like the weapon sounds that much.
KI seems a little weak but then again this is only a demo build.
The interaction between the characters is very interesting and the best thing are those skylines and riding to a zeppeling and blow it the fuck up but I wonder how much of it is scripted i.e. if there are restrictions to the time when you can jump off of those things or if they just build the level in a way so that you can´t land in the wrong spots.
And last but not least, was there god mode on? Because at one point he is taking a shitload of damage without dying. Looks a bit chaotic.
All in all a great demo that leaves open questions and with me not liking any of the Bioshock games (can´t really tell why, I even played the first one but stopped shortly before the ending and just had no intention to go back and finish it) I´m not totally convinced but the potential is enormous.
Wow!! Much better than I ever anticipated. So, that's what the new "Big Daddy" looks like. Seeing it in action, it definitely feels like a Bioshock game even if its story isn't directly linked to the first two games. Also, for the record, I never felt distracted by Elizabeth's figure.
Alright, so, this looks cool. But I can't help but be skeptical about it. First of all, it'd be nice to know how much was actually being played and how much is some sort of interactive cutscene. Second, zipping around the levels looks fun, but will it just get annoying to be having a great cinematic moment ruined because your health is constantly being chipped away? If zooming up to that zeppelin stops being spur of the moment and reactionary, it seems like it will lose a lot.
Finally, the gunplay still looks very much like Bioshock. Which I think is a bad thing.
I mean, this game looks amazing, I will for sure buy it when it comes out. And I'm sure the development still has a long way to go. But will it actually be fun to play? Will I be having a fun experience if I don't know exactly what to do to see the game the way it was intended?
They should have just released the damn footage at E3. We´ve had journalists talking about this section for more than a month now. Sure it looks really good and moves surprisingly fast- but imagine seeing this demo without knowing much of anything about it.
It would blow your mind. HUGE missed opportunity. They just went for the cashgrab and accepted whatever g4 offered them. Bet the same thing is going to happen with that full 30 Minute Skyrim Demo.
@altairre: The same kind of thing happened in my case. I was playing Bioshock 1 and I had a crashing issue; then my XBox red-ringed. When I got the replacement unit a few weeks later I played another hour or two of Bioshock and then just stopped playing.
Watching all these hype demos makes me think that maybe I should go through and play again while keeping in mind some of the discussions about strategy and stuff. Bioshock is still a great looking game if you consider the responsiveness of the controls and the relative frame rates.
