BioShock Infinite: Burial At Sea Ep 2 review

BioShock Infinite's DLC, BioShock Infinite and BioShock 1 concludes with this second, longer, stealthier half of last November's return to Rapture. It's out now. You'll hear no politics from me, though by God it's tempting to correlate Burial At Sea Part 2's status as a swansong for two BioShock universes with the recent, shock closure of Irrational. Whatever else there is to both tales, at…

Three Minutes Of BioShock Infinite: Burial At Sea Episode 2

The first part of Burial At Sea, BioShock Infinite's Rapture-bound DLC, met a mixed reception. Alec loved its pre-fall beauty and felt frustrated by its inevitable, violent turn and quick end. Which I suppose means there's plenty of reason to feel excited by the arrival of part two. Irrational want to whet your appetite for wetness with a three-minute video, but be warned: it assumes…

Bioshock Infinite: Burial At Sea Episode 1 review

Irrational have been…

Bioshock Noir: Burial At Sea’s Opening Scenes

Bioshock has that one part, the stunning moment that locks the game in the memory forever. I'm talking, of course, about the opening plane crash and the first view of the lighthouse. The descent into Rapture, like the ascent into Columbia, employed tidy, efficient techniques to build a world that was eerie, allusive and oddly attractive. Alec wrote an entire post about that first sight…

Rapture Captured: Bioshock Infinite – Burial At Sea

The Modern Day Icarus videos that heralded the arrival of Bioshock Infinite were thoroughly enjoyable as far as marketing nonsense goes. Faux documentaries that showed glimpses of the city in the sky, its populace and artefacts, they were entertainingly odd and managed to win my approval despite showing nary a glimpse of the game itself. As the Burial At Sea DLC approaches - and with…
