Idea. Not very clever and it's sooooooo unlikely don't shoot me down just seemed cool but what if Columbia was a simulation using one of the computers in Rapture like Lambs big console thing and Booker is someone trapped in it and elizabeth was another person trapped in and he's trying to get her out and the sumulation is called Operation Infinite or something?

as i said unliklely but could be cool

Prince-Noctis

That's not such a bad idea. Maybe it's some sort of propaganda simulation Ryan hadrigged up. Columbia is the polar opposite of Rapture so it wouldn't be a stretch. Booker and Elizabeth could be stuck in the simulation too since they were forgotten after New Year's Eve when Rapture went to hell.

I have an even more unlikely theory though! Booker is actually some sort of malfunctioningrobot and he sees Columbia abnormally. It sounds farfetched, but as we all know, Jack from Bioshock 1 had "something" that made his life a lie. Just like someone posted earlier in this topic, the gameplay would reveal what makes this a Bioshock game and Booker could have a sort of "Something" like Jack had.

I still hate 3D. A gimmick is stilla pointlessgimmick no matter how many commercials they advertise for it or no matter how popular and in demandthe marketers say it is.

Woah! I just noticed something interesting. At the 6 minute mark, when Booker is in the bar, he looks around the room and the picture in the middle of the room changes. It is originally a picture of the Statue of Liberty with a man riding a horse in the foreground, but as Booker is looking left it changes into the portrait of a man. You can catch the edge of when it is changing too.

Yeah I noticed this! However I don't think these are spoilers as such. If this was the case, why would they put it so blatantly in a gameplay trailer 2 years prior to release?

To give us something to speculate until the discussion has become so old and boring that we forget about the major spoiler? :P

They did reveal something that is important to the game. We all thought this place was real until the information from this trailer was pieced together. It doesn't tell us much about the story, but it gives us a pretty huge hint as to what this game is about. Booker could be real and trapped in the simulation, or he could be in a sort of Matrix world that he thinks is real until the robots come to wake him up and drop him down a long tube into a pool of water, or Booker himself could be a type of malfunctioningrobot. The new Big Daddy with the visibly beating heart could hint towards human-like robots.

The trailer was very good btw. It retains a sense of wonderment while still having that odd element that makes things seem wrong or out of place. I'm curious where they're going with this. I've watched this trailer at least 3 times and each time it seems less and less like reality. It's all so vivid that it almost seems real, but there are too many clues that say otherwise. Very expertly made.

Did anyone else notice the flag materializing itself and making a computer-like sound ala Assassin's Creedafter the bell fell in front of Booker? We see something weird like this again when Booker takes the rifle from the barrel next to that crazy patriot. Is Columbia a computer simulation?

We also see lots of weird things happening in the trailer. The woman sweeping her burning house, the crazy patriot giving a speech to nobody, a paper deliverer riding a broken carriage with a lifeless demeanor. Maybe Columbia is a malfunctioning computer simulation of sorts? It certainly seems "off" for reality.

Study the gameplaytrailer carefully:

Indeed, that is pretty much Demon's Souls 2. They might as well call it that. It has the same art and gameplay style. Plus the same atmosphere.

Anyway, I couldn't be more excited! Demon's Souls was one of the greatest things to come out of this generation, so a sequel can only kick some major ***.

That video showed almost nothing, but still, I want to be excited about a Final Fantasy game so I will keep my hopes high. Being a PS3-exclusive this time, hopefully Versus will have more room to grow than FF XIII had. Still, if it wasn't for XIII's linearity and lack of endgame content, it would have been a great game. It had the best soundtrack in the series (My opinion), and stellar graphics. The gameplay was fun too, but the overalldesign of the gameheld it back immensely.

Shameless self-promotion commence!

I'm level 12 with around 930 trophies, so I'm getting there. I have 9 Platinums so far and I'm getting close to Platinums in Dead Space, 3D Dot Game Heroes, and BlazBlue: Continuum Shift.

Here's a quick list of hard-earned Platinums that I've gotten:

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Bayonetta, Resident Evil 5, Bioshock 1, Assassin's Creed 2, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Fallout 3 (100% + DLC),and Batman: Arkham Asylum.
