So Irrational Games has released this to the masses:

Loading Video...

Yea, i'm going to do myself a favor and run very far away from this topic. I personally don't want to watch it. Just gonna sit this here, and slowly back away.

So sad it was pushed back to March. Meaning it releases right along side of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the WiiU.

There were like no spoilers in there. But this looks amazing. Glad I preordered. Also, is this the same lighthouse as in Bioshock 1?

Ha, I love the British Jennifer Hale.

OK, didn't go further than the first 2 minutes, just so I can then experience the parts where you play it straight from the game. Especially given how it's no doubt meant to evoke the opening to the original BioShock.

@Fredddi43: Eh, I'm just covering my ass. For every person that says, "I saw no spoilers!" theres a person that'll freak at the sight of a lighthouse and cry foul play.

@Yummylee: Thats pretty much my reason for staying away from the full video. Heard the little conversation in the beginning and realized that I'm better off waiting until March.

@DjDonFrancisco: Yeah, I wish I had your willpower, but I can't stand not watching any of the footage. And as long as its the first 5 minutes only, I don't feel like I'm getting spoiled much. Though of course I would rather not watch anything, but its just impossible for me!

I don't want to finish watching this but I do want to go play the original Bioshock.

Does anyone feel particularly spoiled after watching this? I've hesitant to click play if there are any big reveals in the first five minutes.

WHY ARE THEY SHOWING US SO MUCH OF THE GAME. I want to have all those "OH SNAP" moments right when I'm playing it!

Yeah, I'm leaving this thread.

was thinking the same thing. Also the song that's playing in the lighthouse gave me chills, looks amazing.

Not watching this, just like I have ignored almost every other trailer, gameplay footage or picture. I am going to experience this game, without knowing a single thing about it or what's going to happen. Which is really hard in this day and age.

I want to watch but I must not give in.

The allusions to the beginning of Bioshock are all there right down to the final mode of transportation to the place. I wont specify since people are saying they don't want to be spoiled despite the topic clearly stating there are spoilers in here.

it gives basically nothing away.

They have gave way too much away with this game, I knew nothing when I borrowed Bioshock off a friend and that's what made it so great.

I now know so much about Bioshock Infinite, the reason your there, the villian, the world and time. All they had to do with this game was say it's the true sequel to Bioshock and everyone would of been onboard, I feel the wonder of it has already been spoiled.

Loving the Bioshock callbacks. And Jennifer Hale. Don't feel at all spoiled by the video, but I totally understand wanting to go in fresh.

@Bourbon_Warrior:  Well, I agree they have definitely been giving more away for the sake of marketing...but I wouldn't take these themes and characters at face value. All the allusions to inter-dimensional travel in the E3 footage and interviews are certainly the most mysterious (and my most highly anticipated) aspect of the story. I believe Levine is far too smart to play his hand too early, or allow it to be.
