Would You Kindly ~ Bioshock Infinite Burial At Sea Review

images (7)

 

Bioshock Infinite has been out for a little over a year now. Now we finally have all the DLC in our hands, mainly the two episodes of Burial at Sea. I will be reviewing both episodes as if they were one, since it really feels like they should have been included together in the first place. So, would you kindly:

2374821-bigdaddy_web

Episode 1: The first episode of the story features a familiar setting and game play. You play as Booker, like in Infinite, and also have Elizabeth as a companion character as well. Gameplay is the same, Elizabeth can open tears at will, toss equipment, and various other stuff. The story takes us back to the familiar place of Rapture, with the graphics of Rapture enhanced; as in all the Big Daddy’s touched up, the scenery, and the general textures. It looks very good, despite Bioshock Infinite not being the most graphically demanding game. The story takes place before the first Bioshock and is takes place after the events of Bioshock Infinite. The story in episode 1 clearly shows us that this is an epilogue to Infinite and prequel to the original titles. Without spoiling too much, the little sisters play a significant role throughout both episodes, and a surprise show down at the end will may make you want to throw your controller at the TV.

Episode 2: The gameplay and the way you approach enemies this time around, totally changes the formula that Bioshock and System Shock both have previously used. This time around stealth is the heavy factor and Elizabeth is the new playable character, she is sadly no where near as strong as Booker was, and she can not just simply run into a room like Chuck Norris and hip fire kill everyone in sight. You must use wits, powers, and weapons while avoiding straight up confrontation with your enemies, especially the Big Daddies. The story takes place right away after the first episode and you can expect a few familiar faces appearing such as Atlas from the original Bioshock. Elizabeth is now emotionally scarred after everything she has been through, she can now see through all the doors with her unique ability of opening tears, and can see in to time (the past, present, and future) along with all of it’s variables and constants. All the “Infinite” versions of her seem to all come down her purpose in this story. Which is a huge twist and you should love it when you see it.

BurialAtSeaEp2-610

Replay Ability: High

Final Verdict: Bioshock Infinite Burial at Sea now  a complete package is a cool addition to the lore. If you are into the story of the Bioshock games, this really clears some of the confusing parts about the original games, even though  some things about Infinite still remain a mystery. Most questions for Bioshock have been answered, with some shocking revelations, along with some cool gameplay that helps you push through the story. Bioshock Infinite Burial at Sea gets a 9 out of 10.

Irrational Games Team Laid Off, Is Bioshock VITA Vaporware?

Bioshocks Elizabeth In real Life

Update: Apparently Ken Levine is giving the Bioshock development responsibility over to 2K Games. Hopefully the VITA game will still follow through on the original vision of being a standalone game with a full console game experience separate from the other titles events but in the same universe, as its initial announcement had caused much anticipation on the platform.

Ken Levine of Irrational Games announced today that the company responsible for Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite is effectively “winding down” as we know it for favor of a new game design technique involving smaller studio employment and larger focus on what the gaming community wants. Irrational Games is set right in our home town of Boston, Massachusetts. Ken also announced that the primary focus of himself and his team right now is to help those who have been laid off to find new jobs in the games industry, in addition to his new unannounced project’s pre-production which has apparently been going on.

‘Narrative-drive games that are extremely replay-able’ (paraphrased slightly) is the only hint of future projects to come given by Levine at this time. Levine also mentioned that the next project will be completely digital and have no physical edition. This move has many questioning the future of the Bioshock series as if to completely ignore that Ken and his remaining 15 members of staff want to do something groundbreaking again.

However, VITA owners were promised an exclusive game that would stand on its own for the Bioshock series – and that may now be vaporware or if it’s not then it could be outsourced for development elsewhere. Ken Levine announced that his team is heading up a brand new project and will still remain under Take-Two Interactive, the hugely successful parent company of Rockstar Games (makers of the Grand Theft Auto series) and more.

DLC News: SimCity, BioShock Infinite, and XCOM: Enemy Within Expansions Available Today [HD Videos]

DLC

It’s Tuesday gamers, and you know what that means. Stuff is releasing for the video game industry. SimCity sees a new DLC pack available today entitled ‘Cities of Tomorrow’ for EA’s Origin platform on Windows PC via developer MAXIS. It’s also compatible with Mac OS X and is priced at a whopping $29.99 with a focus on going green versus making profits as well as the addition of MegaTowers to the game.

XCOM: Enemy Within releases as a DLC today for the Windows PC version of the game while it will be part of a new edition releasing on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 since Take-Two Interactive has described the expansion as “too big for download” on consoles. You can grab it for $29.99 on PC and you can play it on PS3 / 360 by buying XCOM: Enemy Within – Commander Edition for $39.99.

Last but not least, Burial At Sea – Episode 1 DLC for BioShock Infinite is finally available on PC / 360 / PS3 from publisher Take-Two Interactive and developer Irrational Games. While the downloadable content is being criticized by early reviews as being way too short and unsatisfying, the wait for this DLC has been long and many gamers will want to find out for themselves. Today the DLC is up for sale at the price of $14.99 for those who don’t have the Season Pass (which can still be bought for $19.99).

The State of the Modern Gamer (An Open Letter)

GDC Protest

It’s been quite a remarkable year for gamers but not all things has been pretty. Of all the topics discussed, I believe gamers should be under the microscope this time. This is a letter to the gamer; an observation. A small one indeed, but one that I feel should be spoken. Gamers don’t realize how much their voices effect the industry and how it changes the landscape of it. While I do agree that we should voice our opinions, it’s how we do it that falls under great scrutiny with me and it should with the community.

For instance, comments concerning what console should be bought by a “real” gamer. This is such nonsense!! Whatever the gamer chooses, it is entertainment fitting to their tastes. However the gamer games, he / she is a gamer. Yes, a gamer can want to watch television through their console and game, or play an app on his phone and be a gamer. It is quite possible, you know. How can one say what is for “real” gamers and what is not? To hear gamers describe fellow gamers as “hardcore” or “casual”, with a completely negative opinion towards the mobile market is quite absurd. I would say it’s blowing some subject matters out of proportion.

A good example of a proportion being blown out to the high heavens was the Aliens: Colonial Marines fiasco. Hey let’s just get down to the nitty gritty. It wasn’t what we hoped for. We were promised a definitive, graphically beautiful piece of software. What we got was, of course, different. Gamers responded unkindly to them. A class action lawsuit was later filed. Aliens: CM, bottom line, was not that bad of a game. The graphics were dialed back, some of the atmosphere was just a little lost, but overall the game did alright for an Aliens game. It was more or less, more of the same stuff we’ve seen before, I mean really; what Aliens game ever did kick major azz? Tell me… I’ll wait. Yet, I enjoyed my time playing it. Saying that in a forum and you’re guaranteed to get stones thrown your way. So because of some graphic changes, you weren’t able to enjoy the game for what it was? You couldn’t find fun in three buddies fighting aliens alongside with you in dark corridors? You said they lied to you? Well in that case, every developer has lied to you when they presented their game at an exposition. Even your beloved BioShock Infinite is guilty of exaggerating graphics in its marketing.

R U Bout Dat Forum Jockey Life

The latest prime example really needs no introduction, you might have guessed it. The situation surrounding Xbox One, their former policies, pricing, and mandatory Kinect accessory. Now this subject alone is worth its own article discussion. In fact, many bloggers and journalists have done that for you, so I won’t go into a long talk about it. Or maybe I will. First of all, I have to say that it was rather silly to complain about the always online feature. Simply because I don’t know one gamer that unhooks their console from the network. Ever. My PS3 at home connects daily, every morning, to upload cloud saves to the PSN. The only time you can consider it “unhooking” from the net would be when I turn it off. Gamers already keep their consoles connected to the internet so what was really the problem with the policy? Like Neo discovered in the second installment of The Matrix, the problem is choice. But truly, was that something worth looking to crucify MS for? How about the dormant Kinect? In a camera-filled world, you now worry about the Kinect spying on you? Don’t be ridiculous.

Then gamers took to the forums again with negative energy spewing from their keyboards like volcanoes when a reviewer spoke out against The Last of Us. And why would the Sony president, Shuhei Yoshida even react negatively towards the difference of opinion? I read the review and it didn’t seem to be a nitpick. It was a subjective viewpoint of TLOU, experienced by an individual. Still, gamers bashed the reviewer relentlessly and praised Yoshida for tweeting about his disapproval of the review. The outcry was so harsh that the reviewer later retracted his review and in so many words offered a apology to the community, which was completely unnecessary in my opinion. Gamers can dish criticism about developers and publishers but they can’t take criticism on their beloved developers and publishers? Ah, can you say double standard?

It is ironic that gamers who once stood as a symbolism for individuality shared through the love of gaming have gotten to the point of having a class structure within a fixed social ecosystem. Now you either roll with the punches or “get punched” for being different or for having different tastes. We complain about the continuity of franchised games such as Assassin’s Creed and that other military game that we always bring up in a topic of that kind. But of course with our hands we support that because no matter what our mouths say, secretly we don’t like change. Just make our games look graphically good and we’ll forgive you. That’s where it seems to be, that line that is always drawn. If it looks good, we’ll take it. If it’s developed by a beloved developer, we’ll support and worship. If it’s the bandwagon, by all means don’t be a pink elephant and hop on it.

As we move forward gamers, we must realize the weight of our words with the industry, developers, publishers, and fellow gamers. Support your developers but constructively give opinions on their software. Understand and know that what you might declare as a fantastic game will be utter trash to another gamer. Digest information and judge objectively before you seek to crucify. Read the fine print. Understand that the industry is a business first and foremost. If the game beats you, find a way to get off your butt and master it instead of crying foul. We can do better than what we’ve been doing, gamers.

Elizabeth’s Makeover for BioShock Infinite Burial At Sea DLC; Love It or Hate It?

BioShock Infinite Burial At Sea DLC Makeover

Sporting slightly more of a Betty Boop look, Elizabeth has been made over for her return to the BioShock Infinite game after a brief segue happened in the first DLC with wave-based combat being the focus and now the second DLC on the horizon (Burial At Sea) which will bring it back around to a story-based segment. Many criticized the release of the wave-based combat DLC that released (Clash in the Clouds) since they were promised three story-based DLCs and it now appears they will only get one, however from what our Deputy Editor has said and released about the gameplay it seems pretty awesome. There’s no debate that everyone is really agonizingly waiting for Burial At Sea though, which sees a return to Rapture in the BioShock Infinite gameworld.
