At Best Buy I saw a sticker on it that said value price $20. Not sure if this was on clearance or not so definitely YMMV I believe.

First time posting, long time reader, so sorry for any errors. Also if this has been posted please delete this thread.

What are you waiting for?! Bioshock 1, and 2 are quite possibly two of the most immersive games this generation. I haven't played Inifinite yet, so I can't comment on that (yet).

I like the YMMV attached to the end. Because a major retailer is going to discount a huge AAA release by $50 one day after release. Hah. :)

Some noob employee just made a mistake at a single location.

I would think the "Rapture Edition" would be enough of a clue, but in case it isn't this is the game he's talking about:

Ultimate Rapture Edition has the first two games and the Bonus content. It's not Infinite.


You beat me BMX.

I have 0 intrest in infinite for a pretty ridiculous reason (other than price). But since I havn't played either of these games so I'm tempted. This is my reason for not wanting to play infinite:
Look at those boobies grabbed your attention huh? So big and cleavagy with that dress thing.

Now she is belle from the beauty and the beast. She looks like a character from the PS2's Kingdom hearts. She looks like a disney princess with a big bobble head and huge eyes.

While I will say I thought the earlier trailers were better and I liked the older art style more. As you play with the game and start to watch Elizabeth interact with her environment and how she makes the world come alive you basically won't care anymore that it doesn't look super realistic because you get the feeling she is.

Also, really she looks fine... this is just a bad screen cap.

Last thing... didn't mean to derail the deals thread just had to make my peace with that. I'm not hugely far into the game, but from what I've played ... even if you don't pay the full price. You don't want to pass on the game and miss out on that aspect just because the art style isn't photorealistic IMO.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

You're missing out if you skip these games. They're one of the best this generation. BioShock Infinite and possibly The Last of Us are great games to end this generation.

I thought the same thing when I first saw it, don't feel bad :p.

These two games don't take long to beat, Bio 2 has multiplayer on it but probably not a lot of dedicated fans playing that portion. If you have a rental store near you I'd say do that and save some cash.

Not a coupon, they've been $17.99 at BB for a while for both consoles. There haven't been any available in my region for weeks.

1. The person portraying Elizabeth in the cinematic trailer is a girl who cosplayed as Elizabeth and was then hired by Irrational Games in December (pretty cool of them if you ask me): http://kotaku.com/bi...actua-458779624
2. This trailer is most likely Irrational's publisher trying to market the game towards the "fratboys" like they did with the cover art which is why there's alternative. Here is a video where Ken talks about it
3. This has been stated over and over that they were inspired by Disney princesses, it's no secret.

From Shawn Robertson, Animation Director:

Elizabeth is the heart and soul of Bioshock Infinite, and as such her expressiveness is integral to the narrative. When designing her, we exaggerated her features so the player could clearly read her emotions at any given moment. We looked at some of the female leads from Disney animated movies and drew inspiration from their designs




It's cool that you admit the reason you are skipping the game for now is ridiculous but I hope you pick it up when it's cheaper sometime. I just beat the game today and it's as good as all the reviews are saying (especially on PC). Easily in my top 5
3DS Friend Code: 1203 - 9542 - 1648 (Remember to PM if you add me!)

I don't consider QTEs gameplay. This "game" is about as deep as the mini games on a disney DVD.

I know this is OT, but do older games from GOG work without compatibility issues (ie, playing Windows 98/XP games on a Windows 7)? Would I be able to buy this, install it and play it without having to patch/mod anything?

I purchased Max Payne 1 & 2, and Vampire: The Masquarade on Steam and I had to go through quite a few patches to get those games working on my system. I was hoping these games were updated/fixed to install and work properly given that Valve knows what OS people are using.
