Here’s something you don’t see every day; an award-nominated blog (or blog written by a LOSER) jumping on a hit bandwagon by posting up a trailer that’s set tongues wagging around the net.
In all fairness, though, I’d put this sucker up even if no one else gave a toss about BioShock Infinite. First off, it’s the game I’m most looking forward to next year. Second, it’s made by Ken Levine and Irrational, the people behind the best story told in gaming in the last ten years (BioShock, in case you’re interested). Third, this trailer isn’t just cool, it’s necessary; in light of the fact that high-profile games wizards seem to be leaving Irrational every other day, this is a timely reminder – and hopefully a confirmation – that Infinite isn’t well on its way to becoming vaporware.
In other news, GameWaste was passed over by the GMAs for best blog in favour of Hookshot Inc. I’m no way bitter and filled with hatred for them – they’re such a nice bunch of guys that losing a GMA to them doesn’t hurt at all – not one little bit. However, GameWaste has plans to rise from the ashes like a Phoenix and return with enough puerile nonsense to crush all comers next year! You heard it here first! 😉
In other other news, XCOM has dropped from 7th to 10th in the UK games sales charts. This should not be. XCOM is ten pounds of awesome in a five pound tin, and hands down, one of the best games you’ll play all year. Go out and buy a copy now. NOW!
