At long last, here it is! Of all the games that have featured on my channel so far, this is by far the one I've been looking forward to doing the most. Welcome, everyone, to the exellent BioShock Infinite!
In Part 1 of this series, Booker DeWitt is brought to a lighthouse where he is transported via rocket chair to a church dedicated to worshipping the supposed prophet Comstock. All Booker knows is that he is sent to Columbia to bring back a girl in order to 'Wipe away the debt.' He also takes the time to be baptised into a cultist church, walk around the streets of Columbia, and check out the 1912 Carnival.
This series will feature the entire game, from the intro to the end credits, consisting of gameplay and live commentary by the TheTrueIronGamer. I will be doing my best to show you guys as many of the vigors, Gear locations, and vigor upgrades as I can, but more than anything else, I just want you guys to sit back, relax, throw your feet up and enjoy one of the most brilliantly atmospheric and visually stunning games I have ever played.
Set in 1912 during the growth of American exceptionalism, the game's protagonist, former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt, is sent to the floating air-city of Columbia to find a young woman, Elizabeth, who has been held captive there for the last twelve years. Though Booker rescues Elizabeth, the two are pursued by the city's warring factions; the nativist and elite Founders that strive to keep the city for pure Americans, and the Vox Populi, a rebel grouping representing the common people. Booker finds Elizabeth to be central to this conflict, and that she also holds strange powers to manipulate rifts in the time-space continuum that ravage Columbia.
The player controls Booker throughout the game, eventually working with the AI-controlled Elizabeth. Like previous BioShock games, the player uses a combination of weapons, gear, psychokinetic powers granted through vigors and Elizabeth's own powers to fight off hostile foes and make their way through Columbia. In contrast to the limited spaces of the underwater city of Rapture, the open-air city of Columbia provides for more combat challenges, including combat that takes place aboard the city's Skyline rollercoaster-like rail system. The game will also feature an optional "1999 Mode", harkening back to games like System Shock 2 where decisions made by the player will have a more permanent impact on the game, possibly leading the player to an unwinnable situation and requiring a restart from an earlier saved game.
