I wanted 10 for this game.

Would advise people that are sensitive about spoilers not to read the IGN review. Doesn't go into specifics but does talk about the latter part of the story.

Considering how many people seemed to dislike Bioshock 2, the crazy hype for Infinite doesn't make much sense.

There made my different devs, the people who made the first are the ones making infinite. The 2nd was made by a different 2k team. And i loved Bioshock 2 BTW.

Why did that even happen?

Because Irrational had no interest in ever doing another BioShock game in Rapture, if I'm not mistaken.

I like BioShock 2, also. Of course the story is crap, but the gameplay is fantastic and a huge improvement over the clunky BioShock 1.

It is a videogame after all. Gameplay>>>>Story.

so people forgot that IGN got the game super early to review before everyone else and the game had heavy advertising on their website?

i loved both, they are different, and i think bioshock 1 was superior, BUT both are great. My hype-o-meter has already reached unmeasurable levels for infinite :D

Homefront had heavy advertising here.

The exclusive is the only shady part, but the part where you should stop paying attention is "IGN". Anything after that is sorta irrelevant.

2k wanted a direct sequel, in the same universe, and Irrational/Ken Levine wanted to do more of a "spiritual successor" kind of thing, like Bioshock Infinite. So, Irrational made Bioshock, 2k Marin made Bioshock 2, and Irrational has been working on Infinite since before Bioshock 2 shipped.

IGN is such a joke, I'll take this review with a grain of salt.

well everyone was making a big deal out of it and honestly when they got the exclusive first review I knew it was going to score at minimum a 9. But yeah IGN is a joke, I know infinite is going to be great but I rather wait for review sites that didn't get an incentive to give it a high score.

[QUOTE="sts106mat"][QUOTE="silversix_"]

this year's goty is between this and TLOU. Can't see any games (including gta5) coming close.

I reckon GTA5 has a very, very good chance....Rockstar have been on it for ages and they wont let a GTA game be sh1t. expect everyone to start getting super excited when gameplay is shown. Also, how come no news on the next COD? yet, isn't it around this time we get rumours that everyone already knew about?

gta 5 will certainly not be a bad game cuz its Rockstar and they know sup but will it be original enough to win goty against TLOU/Infinite? I don't think so.

it doesn't need to be original. it's GTA.

They didnt buy the whole review, they paid for just the score. Because honesly who's gona go in there and embrace their wonderful gift of reading. Besides, 2K's "investment" might just pay off.

"Would you kindly play BioShock Infinite?" Of course they went with that.jg4xchamp

What did you expect from 9GN ?

#271 Posted by laptopfullcare (1 posts) -
You asked nicely, so deleted. I'm hyping AAA1/2. That's a 9.5, homie. Good post though. Didn't know...pretty much any of that info about the game. Sounds really good. But nah. Make that AAA hype

Its a Paid Review. SNIPER4321

YEAH THERE IS NO WAY a sequel to one of the best games in the genre made by the same great developer with such a great budget and that is being made with details in mind can get great scores, OBVIOUSLY.

he has a 360 instead of ps3, doesn't make it a fanboy, he never trash talks ps3 or engages in console wars. Plus i think his multiplats he mostly plays them on pc.

I believe he discriminates games on the PS3 thought i don't really see his reviews is what i read at least. :P still i doubt angry joe is a credible source of intelligence.. he's more like someone trying to make people laugh in my opinion.

i watch a lot of reviewers, is true he doesn't review ps exclusives since he doesn't have one but i don't see that as discrimination, he just likes xbox, he even already said he was getting a ps4. He makes goofy review that's true but he almost always is spot on on what he says about a game on my experience, you should check some of his reviews and give him a chance. I personally like that he makes his reviews funny but also make good points about the games he reviews.

Would be awesome if they'd come up with a triple-pack for the next-gen consoles at 1080p/60fps. But that almost certainly won't happen.

Exactly. And when I, for one, say "GOTY edition", I mean any kind of "complete edition" that comes packaged with previously released DLC. Might not necessarily be called "game of the year edition". And yeah, Bioshock 1 and 2 didn't have any DLC.

Yeah, that kind of pissed me off when I heard that. I've had this game on preorder for over a year. Just knowing that there's going to be DLC (not to mention enough to warrant a season pass), leaves an extremely sour taste in my mouth. I really hoped Ken Levine/Irrational were above that. Oh well, I guess. I'm sure the game will be great, and if it's as great as I hope it's going to be, I'll pick up the DLC (albeit begrudgingly) when it can be had for dirt cheap.

Negative. BioShock 1 had a pack with new plasmids. The sequel had two map packs, a "protector trial" thing, and Minerva's Den. That's all nitpicking information, but it's correct.

Wasn't the bioshock 1 new plasmid pack distributed as a patch, though? And for free? The last time I replayed Bioshock 1, I just installed it like normal, updated it to the latest version, and it had new plasmids I didn't recognize from when I played it when it was new. And were the map packs for Bioshock 2 all multiplayer stuff? If so, doesn't count. :P Multiplayer Bioshock = :lol:
