BioShock Infinite is planning on offering something no other game has ever offered. At least I’ve never seen it before. 1999 Mode is going to take you back to the “good old days” where video games were completely unforgiving. No matter the difficulty level, you can turn 1999 Mode on and let it treat you like the games of Christmas Past used to. Allowing you to make permanent decisions, demanding weapon, health, and power management, alongside classic progress screwing game overs.
“We want to give our oldest and most committed fans an option to go back to our roots,” said Ken Levine, Creative Director of Irrational Games. “In 1999 Mode, gamers face more of the permanent consequences of their gameplay decisions. In BioShock Infinite, gamers will have to sweat out the results of their actions. In addition, 1999 Mode will demand that players pick specializations, and focus on them.READ MORE
This game is still a long ways off, it’s due out sometime late next year, but that definitely shouldn’t keep you from thoroughly enjoying fourteen minutes of brand spanking new gameplay footage from BioShock Infinite, courtesy of GameTrailers. While its predecessors took place in and around the underwater city of Rapture, Infinite takes us high into the sky, in the beautiful city of Columbia. This is the most we’ve seen from this game since the 10 jaw-dropping minutes of gameplay footage they unveiled about a year ago, and the following is just as mesmerizing.
Every time I get another glimpse at BioShock Infinite I get even more excited for the game than I was before. Everything about it is stunning, and I don’t think it’s a stretch to say this game has a very good chance of being as beautiful and unforgettable as the original BioShock. I’m also a big fan of a protagonist that actually talks, and while I’m a big fan, I’m glad he’s not voiced by Nolan North. READ MORE
There isn’t really any doubt in anyone’s minds that BioShock Infinite is going to be amazing. But just to confirm the hell out of it, Infinite “won” 75 E3 editorial honors this year, just obliterating every other game. 39 of which were “game of show” awards.It seems like no one had anything negative to say at all about the game, which is incredible. See a full list of honors/sites past the break.
BioShock is one of my favorite series. The first was incredible and despite there being little need for a sequel, the second was better than most of us thought it would be. The third game, dubbed BioShock: Infinite isn’t a sequel but more of a spiritual successor; the setting has changed from under the ocean to high in the sky and there are no familiar characters. Despite that the game still retains the series’ trademark plasmid gameplay, unique story and gorgeous early 1900′s setting.
Our last look at the game consisted of ten minutes of unforgettable gameplay and while this trailer isn’t quite that long, it’s still pretty exceptional. The only problem is we have well over a year before any of us can get our sweaty, anxious hands on it, but all good things come to those who wait, right? RIGHT?!READ MORE

Well now you get the whole damn thing. 10 minutes of magical wonderment and amazingness that you will have to wait until 2012 for.

Strap yourself in, and sit down if you’re standing, because you will pass out from over stimulation. Watch it in full screen HD if your computer can handle it. Enjoy!!
