Bioshock: Infinite
« on: 25 Sep 2010, 02:28 »

 It looks amazing. Here are some videos.

Trailer.

"Gameplay footage".

That is pretty much it. Thoughts?

Edit: Oh shit. I didn't know that Dovey already made a thread about it (probably avoided it like AIDS because of the title). Feel free to delete or combine this, mods.

How funny, I was just wondering about this game today. Still slated for Feb 2013?

Won't watch the trailer though. Too tantalizing. I've decided not to watch any more footage for games that I know I'm going to want to play.

Yup, which is amazing. I've been pretty convinced they'd push it back to late 2013 for months now, just due to the reality of the development process on games like this.

The game has been pushed back to March 26th, but I don't care.

Here is Destructoid's take on it.

I want this game very very badly, but they can put it off as long as they feel they need to.

I cannot wait for this game. And I am avoiding all info, screenshots, teasers or trailers. I knew absolutely nothing about the first two and so the shock and awe of them was majestic.

The only thing I'll spoil is that the one complaint that review had is that the combat is too good.

Just saw the latest preview and this really looks more like call of duty than bioshock. Seriously the main character just grenades the shit out of EVERYONE and never gets hit, it's rediculous. I really hope this isn't representative of the entire game because if so, it looks damn cool as an action game, but NOTHING like a Bioshock game.

I'm guessing it's console codes for the most part. Though as I mentioned before, one of the only faults one review I posted had was that the combat was "too good". Mainly in the sense that while the game encouraged him to play it as a Bioshock title, aka explore and drink in the environment, which tells as much of a story as the actual narrative,  the combat was just so much fun that it was sometimes hard to make himself avoid it.

Bioshock: Infinite apparently cost about $200 million to make. Bioshock cost them $80 million and it doubles the $100 mil development of GTAIV.

Honestly where does all that money GO?! I don't know much about making a game but geez, I don't think a decent game should cost that much. I mean, how much did Skyrim cost? Or say Mass Effect 3?

And yeah, this game probably will set the standard for a while.

Well, Capcom has talked about before how every single character in Street Fighter IV costs at least $1 million to make and release. This isn't even going into other aspects of the game, just developing the movesets and animations. I know the developers of Skullgirls, an indy fighter title, released their development costs for a IndiGogo campaign to raise money for an expansion DLC and it was around $200k per character even for them.

Something like Mass Effect might be a little skewed due to sharing of assets between games too, but I'm pretty sure Bioware has never shared development costs before. I don't think Bethesda has ever released any of their development costs for their projects either, but I assume it was pretty ridiculous, if not anywhere near as close to this, as well. Though clearly none of that money goes into their writing team.

Edit: I'm seeing rumors of $60 mil for Skyrim, but nothing that confirms it. Can't find a damn thing for the ME series. I mean, there are also MMOs that blow $200 mil out of the water, but I don't think they're a fair thing to use in comparison considering how much of a different beast AAA MMO development is.

If you consider wages, administration, hardware, software, and other workplace costs, I'd not be surprised if a single person on a development team costs ~$200k a year, so the costs of a game goes up quickly.

Oh definitely. As I'm sure you're aware considering some of your recent postings, it depends a hell of a lot on experience, but apparently starting pay for a fresh to the market developer (in the US) is about $46k, and it apparently averages out to about $86k a year per person for developer salaries alone.

Edit: Also, if I recall correctly, didn't they start development almost immediately after Bioshock was released? If so, that makes it almost 6 years in development, I know it was at least 5.

For that to happen, they would have to have given the game to someone else about a 3rd of the way through, then THEY would have had to have outsourced it to someone ELSE, and then everyone would have twiddled their thumbs for a few years, and then pretended to be shocked when the final product was a thumb-twiddled piece of shit.

Pretty sure that's not what we'll get with this product.

Not at all. Some things will not be immediately familiar to you, but that's not a big deal. The only thing they really share other than some gameplay mechanics and features is the theme of critically analyzing political beliefs.

I do highly recommend going back and playing through the first Bioshock at some point though. Andrew Ryan is one of the best villians in video games and his death scene is one of the best video game moments in history, period.

I got it from GetGamesGo.com, which gives you XCOM, Bioshock and a third game of your choice (Civ V/Spec Ops: The Line/Mafia II) if you get it before it releases 3-ish hours from now. GreenManGaming.com offers the same deal but it also offers The Darkness II or Bioshock 2 as a third option, and is 1,50 cheaper. I went with Spec Ops, myself.

Free market competition is the greatest thing to happen to PC gaming.

And guess what Steam's pre-order bonus for Bioshock Infinite is?

By the way, I've signed up for that pre-order flash game thingy. It's a puzzle game, and it starts off a bit slow but gradually gets more difficult. Apparently there's a reward at the end that differs whether you've been choosing for one faction or the other. Might be interesting.
