There's not much we can say about BioShock's Infinite's protagonist Booker DeWitt -- not much good, that is. A US Cavalry veteran that's in debt with the wrong fellows, he's no knight in shining armor coming to rescue Elizabeth from the dragon's lair. He's looking out for his own skin and he's willing to cut down anyone in his way. At least, that's about as much as we can tell from BioShock Infinite's latest trailer, "False Shepherd".
It really says it all in the title, doesn't it? Not only does it imply that we as players shouldn't put our full trust in DeWitt just yet, but there's a sly jab at Mass Effect there as well. No "Paragon" or "Renegade" choices here, Booker DeWitt makes his own decisions -- at least we think he does (would you kindly?), but we've been surprised before. There's also some potential religious reference to be inferred, but I won't touch that with a 10-foot pole. Ask Ken Levine about that.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. We're approaching critical mass on epic trailers here, Irrational Games. Getting real tired of your taunting the fact I can't play the game yet. Come March 24 I'm going to play BioShock Infinite immediately and then turn and ask, "Where's your trailers now? No more, huh? That's what I thought." My hype is hyped. It can't hype no more.
