I so desperately want this documentary on Columbia from BioShock Infinite to be real, because it’s totally something I would watch. I want to learn more about the floating city and its volatile relationship with the United States after it took matters into its own hands with the Boxer Rebellion in 1901. I also want to know more about its leader, Zachary Comstock, and his tyrannical rule over the people of Columbia.
Where too many games take having an interesting story as something to consider tossing in after they’ve made sure the enemy dismemberment looks as gruesome as possible, BioShock has always revolved around its world and the characters that inhabit it. I highly recommend you pop a bag of popcorn and really soak in this two minute tease of what could be, after the jump.
