As if BioShock Infinite could become any more appealing than it already is, those jerks over at Irrational Games released another trailer today. What a coincidence, it's a better trailer than anything anyone else puts out. What's this, the fifth, tenth, twentieth BioShock Infinite trailer that has made me shiver in anticipation? March 26 can't come soon enough.
It is, however, a time of celebration for Irrational Games so break out the champagne -- BioShock Infinite has gone gold. The company can't even post a blog about their game going gold without making BioShock Infinite sound like an early contender for "Game of the Year":
"The total cost of the game was five years, 941 billion Klingon darseks (plus tip), 47 camels, a cranberry flan, and the blood, sweat, and tears of the Irrational Team.
Nobody has ever built a game quite like this. It’s a shooter, but a shooter that brings you to very uncomfortable and dangerous places. I can’t demand that you play the game; I can promise you, however, that once you have, it will be an experience you won’t soon forget."
How fitting that this latest "Lamb of Columbia" trailer and also the two "Modern Day Icarus" trailers prior have been particularly eerie and haunting. With each trailer, it's only becoming more clear that even the basic assumptions we've made about BioShock Infinite might not be true or even remotely representative of the complete work.
Elizabeth has been the face of BioShock Infinite since day one, with her obviously complicated relationship with protagonist Booker at the forefront, but do we really know who either of these people are? Do we know what they're capable of? I'm kind of frightened of the secrets that lie in BioShock Infinite. I can only imagine what the frat boys will think.
BioShock Infinite, March 26, PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. If you're not already in, you don't know what you're missing.
