You Didn't Really Want to Play BioShock Infinite This Year Anyway, Right?

#251 Edited by AssInAss (2741 posts) -

So, Dishonored and Hitman Absolution will be the more interesting games to see at E3? Maybe Ass Creed 3, but I've been disappointed in that franchise's showings since 2.

I could really do without the sarcasm in the titles for news articles

#254 Posted by EndlessLotus (109 posts) -

Bloody hell! The one good non-sequel title of the year....

#255 Posted by liquiddragon (270 posts) -

damn, there goes my most anticipated game this year.

Delayed for tacked on multiplayer with microtransactions and/or kinect integration. I'm calling it now.

Actually, I heard it was for online asynchronous multiplayer and crossplay with the Vita version (sold separately).

Seriously, Asynchronous multiplayer would be kind of crazy and awesome, especially with the phase shift/time shift stuff they are doing.

Just remember, if a good game is delay, it can be a good thing, a bad game will always be a bad game, from Miyamoto, except for Duke Nukem.

Hey, whatever man.

I would have liked to play it this year, but delays always make the final product better.

Besides, this gives the GTA V in October thing even more credence.

Yeah, I've given up already. Alex Navarro doesn't know HOW to write without inserting bad attempts at cleverness. You can almost hear how hard he's forcing it.

#261 Posted by thesage (52 posts) -

Surprisingly, I'm not mad or upset about this at all. To be honest I don't really care about Bioshock being delayed, even though I've watched every single trailer and teaser video and know it will be a decent game. Hmm, maybe my excitement for games has begun to die down.

In before pushed to next gen consoles.

#263 Posted by SmilingPig (1341 posts) -

I have no longer any expectations from Bioware, as far as I am concerned it’s just an empty brand that EA puts on "B" titles to pretend that it’s an "A" game.

#264 Posted by mr_shoeless (388 posts) -

This will also give the Elizabeth character time to have breast reduction surgery.

#265 Posted by Loopah (133 posts) -

Yeah, does this not scream next-gen release?

#266 Posted by Obinice (275 posts) -

I approve. If you're going to do something, take your time and do it well.

#267 Posted by Bunny_Fire (336 posts) -

well looks like no one will see it end of the world this year right? ...

#268 Posted by NMC2008 (1237 posts) -

Probably the only game I wanted to play this year. I am running into that wall where nothing exciting me at the moment, this is the first time in my life that E3 isn't exciting me, I am usually a bag of excitement at E3 time, but I am currently not hyped at all, hopefully that'll change. To be 100% honest, I am looking more forward to the E3 Bombcasts than E3 itself.

#269 Posted by BLKZOMBIE (129 posts) -

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?! WTF! Well, I guess that leaves more time for Borderlands 2.

#270 Posted by BoomSnapClap113 (186 posts) -

Awwweee. Although I am all for putting out a finished polished game. I was soooo looking forward to playing this.

#271 Posted by Roger778 (960 posts) -

That's disappointing. I was looking forward to seeing it on the E3 videos this year. But, regardless, if it gives Ken Levine more time to make it wonderful then I can wait.

Oh, by the way, everyone, I don't believe the world is going to end this year. That's just a crazy Mayan legend or myth.

#272 Posted by Sticky_Pennies (2019 posts) -

It's killing me, but I'm going to have to man up and accept it. Besides, the game will be better off for it.

#273 Posted by JakeLogan (221 posts) -

In all seriousness, please do. I've got way too much video game on my plate to even consider this gem for a while. Everyone, take a hint: back the fuck up and let me breath.

#274 Posted by DFILL450 (52 posts) -

I wanted to play this game before the end of the world. Oh well.

#275 Posted by cuxun (57 posts) -

I understand its getting delayed and everything, but why the fuck they announced this at 2010!!!!!! I mean I understand a better game will come out because of the delay, but Jesus!!!!

#276 Posted by FlipperDesert (2106 posts) -

2012's looking a little sparse to me now that this and Prey 2 are not in it.

#277 Posted by Alexandru (301 posts) -

I can tell it's Navarro from the title.

#278 Posted by Eyz (449 posts) -

awwww, come on :/

#279 Posted by Moonshadow101 (575 posts) -

I was half-thinking that this game had already been released, but had simply faded into obscurity so quickly that I didn't notice it.

#280 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (3923 posts) -

This will also give the Elizabeth character time to have breast reduction surgery.

If she does I'm out! No sale!
#281 Edited by gaminginpublic (115 posts) -

I was going to say, "GOD DAMNIT!" But, then I remembered what happened when Skyrim was released, and how it was basically a broken piece of shit for PS3 for 3 months until Bethesda finally got around to kind of/sort of fixing it.

#282 Posted by cannedstingray (414 posts) -

I really wouldn't care, but I have a feeling they have figured out some sort of multiplayer to add, and that is what the extra time is being used for.

I'm sure 2K is pushing for some mp and would be willing to extend an already very long dev cycle to allow implementation.

#283 Posted by firecracker22 (561 posts) -

Jeff's been pointing out for a while now that seeing less of Bioshock could be a good thing because the pitch of the game has essentially already been made and well received.

Them skipping the convention shows and focusing entirely on development is a huge plus I think. Even if it is being used to work on multiplayer, it seems like a smart move. I don't see how them showing anymore of the game will do anymore good, either. I think by this point with what they've said, and showed, people who are in are sold on it already. People who are on the fence or not yet sold on it probably won't make a decision until after it's released anyway.

I dunno. Just seems like an appropriate decision given the change in circumstances with the release date being pushed back.

#284 Posted by KamikazeCaterpillar (1130 posts) -

And the number of games I'm looking forward to this year becomes one.

#285 Posted by Kenshinfan818 (60 posts) -

It sucks that it's getting pushed back but in the long run it will definitely be worth it. While it sucks that it won't come out for a while this isn't a game that's going to be pushed to the side. Extra time means that the game will most likely come out better.

#286 Posted by morrelloman (609 posts) -

I'm on the bandwagon here. Imagine what would of happened to ME3 without a delay.

#287 Posted by captainanderson (258 posts) -

Damn Ken Levine and his perfectionism.

#288 Posted by McDayman (106 posts) -

Sucks to have it pushed back....but it will give us an unexpected gem for early next year while I'm sure there's plenty to keep people busy this fall.

#289 Posted by Beforet (2932 posts) -

That woman's tears disturb me more than her cleavage ever did.

On an unrelated note; no, I didn't want to play Bioshock Infinite anytime soon. Not really. It seems like it will be neat, but I don't need it to be out. I'll wait.

#290 Posted by spiralsin (156 posts) -

This makes me sad.

#291 Posted by piropeople13 (399 posts) -

As long as it results in a better game this is great. My shame stack of unused games is wayyyyyyy too tall.

#292 Posted by MocBucket62 (1259 posts) -

Damn, I was really hoping to play this. I never played a Bioshock game before, but this looked really interesting.

#293 Posted by Arctodus_Simus (1 posts) -

Yes, I did :(
