BioShock Infinite goes gold, releases new trailer

BioShock: Infinite has gone gold. Barring some sort of catastrophic event, trucks bearing the long-delayed shooter from Irrational Games and Ken Levine will trundle to retailers near you by March 26. The series of tubes will be freshly flushed to ensure optimal digital distribution as well, we're sure.

"It’s a shooter, but a shooter that brings you to very uncomfortable and dangerous places," Levine said in an Irrational blog post. "I can’t demand that you play the game; I can promise you, however, that once you have, it will be an experience you won’t soon forget.

While the studio pops champagne to celebrate the culmination of more than three years of development, we'll just have to make do with the new trailer above, showing us a bit more about "the Lamb of Columbia," Elizabeth.

How does one ensure the safety of a lady who could tear the world apart with an errant sneeze, anyway?

    So I'm seeing 2 different designs for Elizabeth in this trailer. Wonder if they are using old footage mixed with new footage? I can't wait. I've got it preordered and waiting for release on Steam.

    Levine's said in interviews that she actually just changes her look over the course of the game. That we're more likely to assume it's old footage mixed with new than the characters do basic things like mix up their wardrobes and hair says something about video games, eh?

    That it does

    Video game characters never change their clothing, unless it's between a combat uniform and a casual one. Costs money to design and animate clothing, so for the most part characters are stuck with the one set. Also, if they only have a single set of clothing, the designers have less work to do with the rest of the body; they only have to deal with what isn't covered. Whereas if you went from a full-length dress to shorts, you're now dealing with the legs a lot more. Same reason a lot of animated shows and movies will reuse frames. It's cost effective.

    I beg to differ. There are lots of games where your character and other characters change clothes. In the GTA games there are tons of outfits, in the Fallout games pretty much any character can wear any piece of clothing, or none at all. Hell even the original Metroid on NES allowed you to play as Samus without the suit. None of these are palette swaps either.

    I don't think anyone was arguing that point, which holds true in more games than not unless it is an RPG. It is a shame, though, that it is so easy to assume that they were using a mix of old and new footage more than that the character changed appearance at some point in the narrative.

    Okay, that last scene made me physically shiver, that seldom happens to me with a game, and much less so with a trailer. So that speak volumes to me of how well made this was, I love with every new trailer they show, they reveal interesting new tidbits without really spoiling anything, which is the way it should ALWAYS be with trailers. Anyway, even better is knowing that the game is finally, and no joke, ready for launch without any longer delays. Glad to see that Levine was able to (mostly) keep his word when he said that the only big delay the game would get was last year's, Because honestly, the shift from February to march wasn't that big of a deal, at least to me.

    Just give it to me already! Don't make me go through System Shock 2 a fourth time!
