BioShock : Infinite



InfiniteBS Cover

The NON-RAPTURE follow-on game calling itself " BioShock ".

Released 2013

Infinite BS Boiled Down : The makers just copied BioShock, did it badly, with nonsensical technology, and created a misfit to 'America' anything. It had 'over-explained' farcical science/society/history. It WAS a poor Fantasy environment with poor gameplay (and a whole lot of lost potential). Considered by many as a taint on the BioShock genre. There was lots of Talk by the people who made it, but in the end it was just Making a Buck 'milking the brand' (and a FAILZ at that).

Its

  • A Super-Duper Flying Police State, with SteamPunk monstrocities, and a weird faux-religious cultism.
  • Hardly historic (American or otherwise), nor Nostalgic (Songs from the future extinguishes any nostalgic representation).
  • Too much magical and inconsistent fake science. Ludicrous 'technology'.
  • Has A Giant Parakeet in a Gimp Suit, pretending to be a Big Daddy. Relegated to Cut Scenes.
  • IS a gobble-dee-gook story, hastily restitched together after too many obvious rewrites.
  • Is Cloning of the previous games' elements, done BADLY - magic potions 'Vigors' cloning Plasmids without any explanation.
  • Has Weak pretentious haphazard Social Commentary, pushed into the Player's face (in between gun battles).
  • Looks like A flying Coney Island[1], pretending to be a City (Complete with a purpose built 'poor' people section, and Racist E-Ride attractions).
  • Has An incoherent plot, which left most players saying : "Just get me back to shooting things"
  • Was "A Hundred Million Dollar[2] Candyland[3] ... with hackneyed feelings overlaid"



BaSx

Burial at Sea  ( x episodes BaS1 and BaS2)  (DLC for Infinite BS set in Rapture)

BS4

The Frequently talked about BioShock 4 - starting based on reports from 2K/Rockstar (Probably after the distaste of Infinite BS's mediocre showing has had time to dissipate).

Their has been the usual fan speculation on forums about what it would contain.
