Bioshock Infinite Preview - Hands-On With One Of Next Year's Big Hits

Well, we have good news and bad news regarding BioShock Infinite. The bad news is that it’s been delayed again. According to Irrational Games’ Ken Levine, when they brought Rod Fergusson from Epic Games over to serve as executive vice-president of development, and to help finish this title, one of the first things he told them was that the game needed another month for polish and refinements. We’re okay with that... as long as it doesn’t signal a series of small delays.

So, that’s the bad news. What’s the good news? It’s worth the wait, and then some. While we don’t want to see this title pushed back any further, all of the hype behind it since the announcement and subsequent peeks at development have all been spot on. We were worried, as we are with most games, that the product wouldn’t live up to the expectations put out there from early looks and studio-controlled videos. But BioShock Infinite is on course to become the must-have video game for 2013.

BioShock Infinite Release Date Delayed Again - Is This Gonna Be A Stand-up Fight Or Another Bughunt?

BioShock Infinite’s release date has been delayed until March 26, 2013. News of the delay came directly from Irrational Games creative director and co-founder Ken Levine.

According to a report on Eurogamer, Levine said: “When Rod Fergusson (former Gears of War franchise director at Epic Games) came on board we looked at the game. He was there for about a month and he said, 'look, I've been looking at the schedule and looking at the game and frankly you could really benefit from another three or four more weeks for polish and bug fixing.'"

"We talked about it. I knew I'd probably get beat up in the press a little bit about it. But at the end of the day, if it's going to make a better game we're going to do it. So the new date is March 26 (2013). That's my bad news."

In case you forgot (which I doubt you have), this is the second time BioShock Infinite has been pushed back. Originally the game was supposed to be released in October of this year. Then, shortly after the original delay was announced, two key BioShock Infinite developers left Irrational Games.

So what do you think? At one point in 2012 BioShock Infinite seemed like everyone’s most anticipated game. Do you still think the game will wow you in 2013? Plenty of games have taken similar stumbles on their way to release and come out unscathed (GTA IV, Alan Wake, even the original BioShock come to mind).

On March 26th, 2013 I guess we'll all find out.

PS - how about the image we used on this post? I mean, if that isn't a "delayed again? child please!" face then I don't know what one is.

Far Cry 3 Video Review »

Naughty Dog will release a story trailer for The Last of Us on December 10, 2012. You can take an early peek at what's to come in the above teaser clip, which offers the briefest of glimpses at a bad situation that's about to turn ugly.

Little is known about The Last of Us other than the fact that it follows protagonists Joel and Ellie on a road trip across post-apocalyptic North America. There are post-human "infected" types roaming the landscape (read: mushroom-headed zombies), bandits galore, ruined cities, and a relative absence of hope. This teaser certainly seems to be setting us up for a very grim picture of the future. Look for the full trailer next Monday.

Darksiders 2's Demon Lord Belial DLC Revealed, Launches

The third DLC drop for THQ and Vigil's Darksiders 2, called The Demon Lord Belial, is both revealed and released as of this week. It seems that there's still some life left on Earth -- or the  Third Kingdom, in the parlance of Darksiders 2 -- and it's up to Death to find out.

The DLC's return visit to Earth pits the surprisingly heroic rider of the apocalypse against... well... I'll give you one guess. HINT: It's the title of the DLC pack. The Demon Lord Belial is available starting today, December 4, 2012, for all platforms that aren't called Wii U (ie PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC) in North America, for $9.99 / 800 MS Points.

BioShock Infinite Cosplayer Becomes BioShock Infinite Spokesmodel

Don't scoff at cosplay. Create a convincing enough costume and you could end up getting yourself a job. Fan Anne Moleva discovered this firsthand after she impressed Irrational Games with her cosplay of BioShock Infinite's leading lady, Elizabeth.

A post on Irrational's website reveals that Moleva landed the gig of live-action spokesmodel for Elizabeth after her cosplay left a big impression on the dev team. She's now "the official face of Elizabeth," which means that she'll be making special appearances at select events as well as appearing in promotional art and TV ads.

The announcement post from Irrational also includes a Q&A with Moleva, so head over to the source link and take a peek.

BioShock Infinite Cover Art Revealed

When you wander into your local game shop on February 26, 2012 to pick up your freshly delivered copy of BioShock Infinite, the above image is the one that will greet you on the game's cover. Irrational Games and 2K Games gave fans their first look at the cover art over the weekend, and the reception (on Reddit, at least) hasn't been the most welcoming so far.

In fairness, the image chosen to grace the cover of BioShock Infinite is a surprising one, giving protagonist Booker DeWitt front and center (and solo) placement. It certainly sends a strong message about Irrational's BioShock follow-up. The original game kept its protagonist shrouded in mystery (for story-specific reasons, obviously), but DeWiit has been a definite focus in preview coverage for Infinite

Are you digging the cover art? If not, what's your beef?

If you like exotic locations, komodo dragons and lots of gunplay, and thought Skyfall was overrated, you're going to want to give Far Cry 3 a whirl when it releases on December 4th. The open world action game has been on our most anticipated list for far too long. For now, set your eyes on this launch trailer, all 10 mins worth for a deep dive into Rook Island:

Far Cry 3 is one of our most anticipated games this year. Are we crazy to think so? Let us know in the comments below.


Metro: Last Light's brand new live-action trailer "The Model" introduces us to a former fashion model trying to survive in Moscow's underground metro system. I'm a betting man so I'll wager this week's paycheck that she's universally respected and things work out great for her. I mean, after the apocalypse who do people always turn to for leadership? Models! DUH. Let's check out this Metro: Last Light trailer and see if I'm right:

Yikes! Rough stuff, huh? That said, bullets are currency in Metro: Last Light and that dude made it rain! The Model will be ballin for weeks!

What'd you think?

Assassin's Creed 3

Yes, here's another one of those "let's jump to fun conclusions based on a third-party-hosted online survey" news posts! GMI Survey has an Assassin's Creed 3 post-mortem survey online (via Joystiq) that asks a lengthy series of questions about your gamer experience, your time with AC3, and, most importantly, the future of the Assassin's Creed series and what you'd like to see from it.

Don't read too deeply into these questions, though it's worth running through the survey if you want to let the powers-that-be know what you'd like to see more/less of in an Assassin's Creed game. Possibilities such as co-op story missions, underwater action, second screen functionality, and a new present-day hero are all mentioned (among others).

Ubisoft hasn't mentioned anything about its future Assassin's plans beyond the upcoming Tyranny of King George DLC; this survey's results will presumably help inform pre-production decisions on whatever comes after it.

Bungie's Destiny Story Points, Concept Art Leaks

Little is known about Bungie's Destiny, but today brings new details thanks to some leaked materials that the Halo creator confirms are the real deal (via IGN). In addition to some peeks at concept art, the leak also lays out some basic facts about the game's story.

The short version: seven centuries from now, humanity is on its last legs. One city remains on Earth and an alien ship with an unknown purpose orbits the planet and keeps it safe (somehow). Until monsters appear at the edge of the solar system, that is. Humanity's "knights" are tasked with fending them off.

MLB 13 The Show Confirmed For March 2013 Release

Sony has a March 5, 2013 release date set for MLB 13 The Show, which is coming once again to both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita platforms. Enhancements in the coming year's update include features like a revised Playoff Mode with "in-stadium atmosphere that replicates the excitement and tension of October baseball." Woo? More exciting is a new beginner mode, which is hopefully realized as the sort of teaching tool that is sorely lacking in pro sports simulators.

The cover athlete for MLB 13 isn't set yet, and it's not going to be until the players have their say. Sony confirms that The Show's cover athlete will be selected by fans in a "Cover Campaign" that is set to start in "early January." It sounds like the potential candidates will be announced before then, so stay tuned.
