BioShock Infinite impressed the hell out of us at E3, even with our increasinly high expectations. One aspect of the game we find particularly exciting is the conflict happening around protagonist Booker DeWitt as he escorts Elizabeth off the soaring city of Columbia.

We're a bit heavy on Gamescom news at the moment, so you'll forgive us if we haven't been writing up every press release sent to us by the Department of Really Good Ideas. However, some Really Good Ideas demand that one sets down one's trailer-watching goggles (professional gear only, you can't have any) and strap on a pair of applauding gloves.

Booker and Elizabeth' video series, we find out how BioShock
Infinite's dialogue came together from a mix of strong writing,
insightful direction, and somewhat awkward recording sessions...
Depending on who you ask, the Occupy
Wall Street movement is either a catalyst for change, or a major
headache. We're not completely sure where BioShock creator Ken Levine
falls, but in a recent interview with Reuters he did admit the 99% rallies have become a source of creative inspiration in the ongoing
development of BioShock Infinite...
A new BioShock Infinite trailer is going to be unveiled at the Spike TV VGAs, and though we know absolutely nothing more than that, we do have a screenshot to both satiate our hunger for information, and to get us speculating...
