BioShock: Infinite Exclusive VGA Trailer…Sucks!

I know what you’re expecting. You’re expecting an incredibly biased, praise-heavy, flaw-ignoring review of the new BioShock: Infinite trailer released exclusively for the VGAs. Wrong. Let me take you step by step through my viewing experience. 

I’m excited. Wow. Wow, this sucks. It looks like the product a 14-year-old fan with no video making ability cooked up on iMovie after watching Techland’s original Dead Island trailer and sneaking into Ken Levine’s office with only seventeen seconds to record before security discovered him and called his parents. It’s rife with clunky camera movements and sentimentalism and…explosions?! The whole trailer feels out of place with the other glimpses of Columbia we have so far, but fits right in with the lazily pre-rendered, non-game engine tracking shots that seem to serve little to no purpose other than to make the 14-year-old editor go, ‘ooh’. Fade to black one more time, I dare you.

*This trailer was made entirely from in-game footage*

OH MY GOD THIS IS GOING TO BE GAME OF THE CENTURY SOMEBODY STEAL ME A COPY NOW I’LL JOIN THE ARMY TO PLAY IT EARLY!

Seriously, the trailer sucks, but the game looks amazing. Your thoughts?

    i believe they gave the girl a breast reduction, this is unforgivable, also there is a lack of dicks in the trailer kthanxbye

      Oh and i dont think the music fits the original atmosphere of the game, its too….. sad-isch/ cry-isch while when i think of bioshock i think of a cold atmosphere

    i think i agree with alex on this, the dead island traielr worked well because of how emotional it was, this was just not that trailer, and fading to black is sooooooo 2010, and yeah no dicks wtf

    I was also pretty disappointed with this trailer. It doesn’t really show anything new and you’re right when it looks like some sort of fan trailer. You would think that they’d take the time to make a more interesting trailer for the VGAs since several other companies revealed stuff that was actually interesting, but I guess they just wanted Courtney Draper to sing a song over a bunch of random footage.

    Ken Levine, I am disappoint.
