1-Minute TV Spot for ‘BioShock Infinite’

Official_cover_art_for_Bioshock_Infinite

BioShock Infinite – the successor to the Bioshock franchise – has been long in the making. Heck, I remember seeing early clips/previews for it at PAX 2011. That’s two years of waiting and wondering “when the hell is game coming out”? While a long road it’s been, and with patience hanging on a thread, BioShock Infinite‘s release is right around the corner. March 26th to be specific. Floating city, guns, rail lines, and robots… it’s time!

As if you weren’t excited enough for the release, K Games revealed this new TV spot for BI during last nights episode of The Walking Dead. While no actual game play is shown, we’re presented an eye widening cinematic; introducing the main hero and his save the “damsel in distress” adventure based in the sky. It’s quite stunning, really. Beautiful world and imaginative characters. This is a hot game, and looks to be well worth the wait. Check out the spot below:

BioShock Infinite puts players in the shoes of U.S. Cavalry veteran turned hired gun, Booker DeWitt. Indebted to the wrong people and with his life on the line, DeWitt has only one opportunity to wipe his slate clean. He’s one man, alone. And the followers of the Prophet Father Comstock will stop at nothing to keep Booker from his Quarry.
But with an arsenal of weapons and the incredible powers granted by Vigors, Booker deals death from above on the Sky-Lines of Columbia. And the girl he’s there to rescue might turn out to be the partner he needs to survive.

BioShock Infinite will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on March 26.

Friday night were the 10th annual Video Game Awards, hosted by Samuel L. Jackson on Spike. The night’s big winner was The Walking Dead: The Game from Telltale Games, who also took home Studio of the Year. See a full list of the winners below the cut.

But even more important than the night’s winners are the world premiere trailers revealed at the show. Compiled here are trailers for BioShock InfiniteTomb RaiderThe Last of UsSouth Park: The Stick of TruthDark Souls IIHalo 4: Spartan OpsGears of War: JudgmentAssassin’s Creed III: The Tyranny of King WashingtonCastlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 and The Phantom Pain.

The 2011 Video Game Awards aired last night on Spike. It only took two years, but they’ve gone and turned into MTV. Flashy, scripted, pompous; a marketing machine masked as an awards show. And what the hell was Charlie Sheen doing there? The show was less about the awards themselves, more of a “look what’s next” showcase. This isn’t to say host Zachary Levi wasn’t charming and funny, which he was; getting tea bagged by a COD solider was the balls (literally and figuratively). Or seeing Felicia Day slice real fruit with ninja sword for charity wasn’t amusing and HAWT. Or that the awards for best character and game of the year weren’t justified; Joker from Arkham City and Skyrim where the right choices. The problem? It didn’t feel like a celebration for games and it’s creators. It was was all procedural and superficial. The whole night was just a big commercial for upcoming titles. Eh, I guess it is what it is. So…the trailers were plentiful. And I’ll admit, most were epic. I’m still hard from the Diablo III and Metal Gear Rising previews.

For your viewing please, NB rounded up all the exclusive trailers from last nights VGA’s. Enjoy.
