[QUOTE="TheWalkingGhost"][QUOTE="BPoole96"] There is a season pass for this game.the_bi99man

Must have missed that. Makes me question pre ordering it.

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.

They must think DLC will increase the life of their game, when so many sales are in the front end and used game sales they get zero cut of, I guess they need some way to get their money back. Want a real pisser? Don't buy GOTY editions used, the codes are only valid once. Shame on gamestop for advertising them as GOTY and charging as such, only to fail to mention you don't get the DLC. I am thinking about cancelling my GTAV pre order and wait for the complete edition like they did with GTAIV.

Saw this youtube comment "Is it just me or did he spoil way to much of the story in this review than really was needed?" Not taking a chance, not watching review or any review for that matter.

#317 Posted by Sagem28 (10498 posts) -

Wow, great scores.

Now I feel kinda sad that this has been spoiled for me...
Can I play this game if I've never played a Bioshock game before ? Or do you need to play the earlier installments first ?

#318 Posted by NAPK1NS (14870 posts) -
You guys make my stomach turn. You look at a couple of delays and assume the game falling apart when it's just being polished up. Then a gaming publication says it's green and those people do a double take. Dude, know your companies and know your games and this doesn't need to happen. Sigh. Okay, I'm done. Glad this got a nice score! I'm all pre-loaded and ready for midnight. So. Excited.

As soon as I saw Ken Levine and Troy Baker on the job I was fcking sold and delays always meant polish for this game to me.

(Pardon the double post). I think conceptually there will be parallels to BioShock, but it's not a prerequisite. Both BioShock and Infinite are made by Irrational Games, while BioShock 2 was developed by 2K Marin. At some point you should check out the first game, but the second is only a supplemental good time, and not a great time.
#327 Posted by freedomfreak (40630 posts) -

Of course, man. Those are some of the greats of the industry. Don't ask questions, just pass the greenbacks.

I figured you said no to my question if I could play this game without playing the first ones :P

I might just play this.

Doesn't hurt to play the first 2 ones. But it's not necessary.

I tend to do just that, my first Deus Ex Hr playthrough took me ages, I was just looking around all the time :P

Maybe I'll just read up on the lore for Bioshock, I really don't know anything about the world.

Make sure not to spoil the ending if you've avoided it all these years. It's a real "shocker," and really flips the world on the players head. The best efforts of the game is its ability to comine FPS mechanics with a multilayered narrative. These games don't come around often.
