BIOSHOCK INFINITE coming in 2012

I was going to write a review of BioShock 2 months ago but never got around to it for various reasons. One of them being that I wanted to play it again to properly absorb it all. Personally, I loved BioShock 2. Even with a few issues (I had hoped to be able to explore around Rapture more) I thought it was a superb follow-up to 2007's BioShock: a title that is on my short list of greatest video games ever.

Well today, like a bolt out of the blue, Ken Levine - the guy who created BioShock in the first place (but didn't work on the sequel) - and his Irrational Games announced that BioShock Infinite will be landing in 2012.

Here's the trailer. And I have to ask: "What. The. %@&#?!?"

HOW does the BioShock saga go from being set in Rapture, a city on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in 1968, to a city floating at 30,000 feet... in 1912?!?

"Okay Chris, take deep breaths. Remember: Ken Levine is back at the helm of a BioShock game. Trust him."

I am completely wog-boggled by the direction that BioShock is taking. And at the same time, more intrigued by an upcoming video game than I can remember being in quite awhile.

If the economy keeps going the way its going, in 2012 this country may get to "see" BioShock manifested in real life ...

I saw the hi-res version on XBox Live last night - except they called it Project Icarus in the video list - looks interesting to say the least...

And with Ken Levine's history - Tribes: Vengeance, System Shock 2 and now BioShock - I would put faith in Irrational Games turning out another HIT... :)

That's the big thing I like about Ken Levine and previously Looking Glass Studios - they tend to focus on building a good game around a good story...not just focusing on churning out another one for the masses...
