I have saved 1000 euromoneys, so about $1400. I hope they won't punish Europeans by just going 1:1, though, since that would make it a lot more expensive over here. Planning on getting both consoles and 3-4 titles at launch.
@starvinggamer: Except they didn't remove him from the baptism, they forced a new outcome from the baptism that never existed before. But the post credit scene seems to point to their actions not mattering at all, or perhaps there is another point in time that branches into that outcome no matter what
Why they didn't matter? The changes amount to erasing the Comstock branch. It doesn't rewrite history - it just removes that branch and allows the multiverse to sort things out. There won't be a Comstock to whom Booker can sell his daughter. The knowledge of everything that happened throughout the game dawns on the post-credits Booker. Same way as it did when he crossed into the martyr reality.
I wonder if this means that Booker will live happily with Annabelle. He did refuse the baptism, apparently, since he has a daughter. But since Comstock should be dead, will he therefore keep the child? What way is there out of his debt, then?
Also, it would be interesting to know what outcome Elizabeth's and Booker's effort would've had in the 2 other Chen Lin timelines, since they actually switched timelines before even knowing about the doors...
This thread helped me understand the story much better, thanks guys. When they arrived in Rapture I actually thought Elizabeth would be one of the Little Sisters freed in Bioshock 1, which would've also been cool. But the real ending of this game had me feeling something I haven't had since Deus Ex Human Revolution, I can't put my finger on it. But what I can say for sure, is that this is hands down my favorite game this gen, and, for me, therefore all time.
@realph: I waited till my PC copy arrived, so I could play it with better graphics, and now that I finished it, I must say that I was wrong with my nod. It is not GOTY nominee, but a clear winner, and my new all time favorite game. Best game this generation, and since I've only been playing games since this gen, best game I've ever played. Every corner I turned, something new awaited me. The story twisted so many times, the ending blew me out of the water. Everyone should play this.
For everybody that liked the scene, you should watch the credits. They have a nice making of video of the song. Really catches you in the feels, especially after the ending. Brb, grabbing my guitar to figure out how to play the song.
I saw that. I'm extremely glad Bioshock Infinite has that navigation feature, because I'm constantly hitting it to see which direction I'm supposed to go to progress, so that I can go in the opposite direction. There's all kinds of cool stuff hidden in the tangential rooms.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who used that tool for "reverse exploration". Even though that made me do a loop later in the game at the graveyard area.
I used the exact same method. "Oh that's where I need to go? Better run in the other direction, so I collect everything." Also run in a loop at the graveyard area, and after some time figured that there where to many enemies around for that to just be a side thing.
