Default BioShock Infinite

Anyone planning on picking it up? I'm probably going to wait for a Steam sale, just because I can't justify spending $60 on a game when I already have a few others I haven't even started yet, but man Infinite is looking soooo good.

I like the idea of Bioshock more than the execution. The setting was interesting, then I got bored backtracking too often. The number of variables in combat was interesting, then the enemy AI seemed to be on Quake levels of stupidity.

I'm not as drawn in by the new setting as I was by Rapture, but I'll check out the reviews at some point, maybe I'll be convinced.

I've seen the tv commercial and it looks interesting but hey I don't have play station or Xbox and I don't play games on my PC so.....
At the moment I only play games on my lowly itouch 4g and hope to upgrade it sometime!

Picked it up yesterday. Absolutely deserves the great reviews it is getting and is on par with the original Bioshock (yes, let us never speak of Bioshock 2 ever again...)

Except now I can't get the organ version of "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" out of my head...

I enjoyed Bioshock 2 a lot. It was a solid sequel, fixed a few niggles from Bioshock1 and made the game slightly more combat focused. The thing is, Rapture is never going to be as captivating and mysterious the second time through; you can't fault the game for that.

You never backtracked in the original Bioshock, and I always thought the AI was very good, as did others such as IGN.

Yeah you did, through a few of the central "hub-like" areas that led to 3 or so different locations. That was boring. The AI seemed like nothing more than retarded running and gunning to me, lots of running endless circles around objects. It actually seemed like some of the Big Daddy fights relied on dumb AI to stop them being too difficult. I suppose you could call it a personality trait, but it sure as hell didn't feel all that exciting.

Well we'll have to agree to disagree then; I sure remember the AI being quite good, each splicer type having their own tactics, running to health stations when injured, hiding, being able to sneak up on them individually, etc.

Plus you have to remember that these guys were drugged up crazies, don't expect too much intelligence

Edit: you want stupid? Try a Gameloft game. Absolute worst AI I've ever seen, except for the NOVA games.
