@jackel2072@gardenstateapologist After 4 hours with the game I totally agree with Sess so far. Transcendent piece of media. It's every bit as powerful as Bioshock, but instead of feeling like the combat is a thing to have to deal with to see the story I actually look forward to it. Aside from Half-Life 2, I can't think of another shooter that has held me in its thrall quite like this one has.

Only nitpick that I have so far is that I like Andrew Ryan better than Zachary Comstock. It isn't that Comstock is a bad character, quite the contrary, but I don't think it'll be possible to craft a villain that is at once as charming and menacing as Ryan.

Talk about insecurity.. This isn't a launch trailer it's a slideshow of internet review headers about your game.

I wouldn't call it insecurity. A lot of the top review outlets have nothing but praise for this game, it could've gone differently. I think it's alright for them to boast a little bit.

@dooftastic: You talking about the long hair to short hair thing? I'm guessing she gets a haircut as part of her physical and metaphorical escape.

If nothing else, I can thank this game for introducing the awesomeness that is Nico Vega to me

@bd_mr_bubbles:

Exactly.

Honestly, I wish they showed none of the story. Couple of shots, couple of 1 min videos and that's it!

Right now it feels like I've already went through half the game.

i'm only aware of the skeletal framework, and that's passing at best.

i MAY have gotten spoiled on the ending (thank you youtube), but it's such a general spoiler if it is one that it doesn't make much of a difference to me.

jeff's latest tweet about it is also fucking encouraging as fuck. it's nice to know that even him (jaded as he is) can be moved/wowed by it.

I'll skip this video. I've been on a strict media blackout ever since I watched the first trailer. Why break it 3 hours before the game unlocks on Steam?

my excitement for this game is bordering on unhealthy.

Looks like they're using the old version of Elizabeth in a couple parts of that trailer. Either that or she gets a dramatic makeover during the course of the story.

@jesterpc238: TT I had that precise reaction in re if this was anyone but Sessler. That was quite honestly the most effusive review I've ever witnessed. Eloquent and precisely articulated, as you'd expect from the man, but goddamn if I didn't almost burst out laughing a couple times when we got a brief respite via his patented earnest eyes before the lavishing began anew. But hey, I generally share his exact tastes, and Infinite seems to revolve exclusively around stuff that fascinates me, so I'm willing to buy in.

Should I pick this up tonight at midnight and risk being late for work tomorrow, or wait till after work tomorrow at 6PM, American time. @winternet, got any ideas?

I wish they showed more of the story and themes of this game and less "HOLY SHIT GUNS AND EXPLOSIONS AND WE HIRED MICHAEL BAY TO DO OUR TRAILER WAAAAH".

Why spoil the best parts?

Oh, I didn't mention that the trailer made me impossibly excited. These next couple days until I get the game are gonna be hard.

I'll be glad when the game finally comes out and people play it, so I can stop seeing people say this game is shit before having played it or that you shouldn't be excited because there's too much hype that it can't deliver on, or whatever BS. Honestly, can we all as a collective enthusiast crowd just be excited for a game without being a cynical, elitist asshole.

Just to be clear, I'm not calling anyone out here. I'm just referring to Assholes across the Internet.

Its funny that Dishonored did more to sell me on Bioshock Infinite than any of these trailers.

Man I hope they make a sequel to Dishonored.

Imma be real with you guys. I expect the triumphant return of video reviews for this one. Anything less will disappoint me since we already know the game is getting 5 stars.

Jeff, super curious what your verdict is. I gues 4 or 5 stars..

Tomorrow morning i will get the songbird edition from my local (dedicated)gameshop.

This trailer is even better than the last one and I didn't think that was possible!

it also probably swayed me to getting the game for PC

@bbqbram: They just got back from PAX East, so at the earliest, it'll be up this afternoon unless they already recorded it. They're probably under embargo for video coverage too, so might not go up until tomorrow.

I hope SO fucking bad, this does VERY well for them. I really, really do...

well considering it apparently cost them $200 mil to make, i'm hoping so too for their sake.

i'm basing that on a neogaf post, so take that as you will.

soon i'll probably throw a few bones their way for the DLC.

Ken Levine said it didnt.

Oh? Was it always supposed to look... cartoonish? I don't mind, I just always thought they were going for realistic graphics, since Bioshock 1 was kinda realistic looking.

Just updated my video driver, hopefully this unlocks on steam at 9PM PST. Like XCOM did...

I didn't think about that. I thought it would unlock like Far Cry 3 did, 1PM EST.

According to the Steam store page it is set to unlock at 9PM PST. !!!!

Woot!!! That's perfect for me.

@jesterpc238: i really enjoyed that review as well. it's kind of funny but weather or not anyone agrees with his review it shows what games can do to people. i mean you can tell he is trying so hard not to let his excitement for the game over whelm him. and again regardless if this game "deserves" all its praise is irrelevant. its cool to see a person get that excited over something and is kind of telling why we all love games so much.

I was expecting some positive reviews, but so far it's gone beyond just that.

Adam Sessler gave probably the most positive review of a game I've ever seen. In fact if it hadn't been him I'd probably have dismissed it as hyperbolic drivel. Can't wait until tomorrow.

@trilogy: Even something as content-heavy as TOR only cost around $50 and as far as I've read had similarly sized teams and dev cycles. So it's probably somewhere between 40 and 65 or so mil.

MEDIA BLACKOUT MEDIA BLACKOUT

I've skimmed through written reviews.

I watch about 30 seconds of the Sess' review and force myself to stop.

I can't take this anymore. Just let me go to sleep now and wake me up when its in my possession .

Levine came out on twitter and said that the 200 million figure was just rumor. He didn't throw out any other figures, however, so take that as you may.
