scottydoesntknow: Ned Stark: So, since people are agitated about spoilers why not talk about other stuff.What's you favorite vigor/weapon/gear combos?Really really loved maxed out devils kiss with the blast hat. Burn it all down!Devil's Kiss has been my go-to, as well as Possession (that's saved my . But I'm really starting to love the water tentacles one (can't remember the name exactly). Although it can become overpowered pretty easily. It becomes pretty easy when you can just blow away every bad guy right off Columbia to their deaths.My go-to weapons have been the sniper rifle and the hand-cannon.The gear is so varied and crazy I don't even know what I'm wearing right now.
Tyrosine: you have missed out on a great game
AntonChigger: Steam is your friend.
Yuri Futanari: I know someone who won't buy the new Bioshock because he doesn't like games that push political agendas down his throat, they just make him mad.I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
alwaysjaded: Ditto. Bought the Infinite/XCOM combo on Steam and wanted to finish XCOM before moving on to Bioshock./ enjoying it a lot// this is just a bookmark to read the article after finishing Infinite
Ned Stark: What's you favorite vigor/weapon/gear combos?
Fubini: I also really liked some of the musical directions they took (no spoilers). Nothing screams "dystopia" like "barber shop music." Made it feel very authentic.//I think that song might have more to it than meets the eye...

Made it feel very authentic.//I think that song might have more to it than meets the eye...The music is fantastic. I stopped at one point, listened for a while, and said "Yup, that's 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' set to barber shop" and laughed.
fisker: There was also some Duran Duran when you are spying on Elizabeth.
neuroflare: Minor spoiler, nothing in thread though.My favorite part of the game so far was the moment shiat got REAL. Link
Jim_Callahan: So... that word "scientific", it doesn't mean what the author of TFA seems to think it means. Alternate world stuff is fantasy, not science fiction.
scottydoesntknow: Ummm where did you get that from? Science has always dealt with the possibility of other worlds/dimensions.
scottydoesntknow: Ummm where did you get that from? Science has always dealt with the possibility of other worlds/dimensions. Hell String Theory is all about alternate universes. Science fiction is fiction that has a basis or groundwork in science.
Jim_Callahan: It's a fairy story. There's nothing wrong with fairy stories (a good parallel to what Bioshock Infinite is going for is Alice in Wonderland, for instance), they just don't explore any scientific concepts. Art major physics isn't the same thing as scientific philosophy.
Ambitwistor: scottydoesntknow: Ummm where did you get that from? Science has always dealt with the possibility of other worlds/dimensions.True, but ...Hell String Theory is all about alternate universes.Not really. This "braneworld" stuff is highly conjectural even within string theory (and doesn't have much to do with the "alternative universes" concept being discussed here).Likewise, all this "many worlds" quantum mechanics stuff is highly overrated and not subscribed to by most physicists.
Lamadin: Fubini: I was disappointed because at the end of the game I didn't see a clear path to redemption for Booker.Ah, but the scene at the VERY end, after the credits role, leaves that issue up to the viewer. Or maybe the entire point of the game is that sometimes there IS no redemption, no matter your faith.There was a story about one of the programmers almost quitting because he didn't agree with the way that Christianity (himself a Christian) was portrayed. Ken Levine talked him into staying, but it's possible that he was so angry was because of the lack of redemption, a tenant that goes against most religions.
meyerkev: I preordered, but haven't gotten a chance to play it yet. I'm avoiding reading the thread or the article toavoid spoilers.My only question is this: Should I play it drunk tonight or sober tomorrow?/Drunk for first time ever.//Beer tastes exactly like Mountain Dew in that the carbonation overpowers all the taste./// At work even. Coworkers took me out.////21 and 1 day//Slashies are fun//\\//\\ \ \\// ////You'd think that the 6'4", 330 lb guy wouldn't be drunk off a single beer.

alwaysjaded: So I've had a chance to play it for a little bit on PC. Is anyone else having problems with the frame rate stuttering? It's fine until I look up or down then it starts looking like I'm in the middle of an earthquake. Tried changing the settings for a while and it's still having this problem. A quick search around and it appears I'm not the only one having this problem.
snake_beater: Still, there's one question I can't wrap my head around: how did Comstock know DeWitt was coming? Was it thanks to that tear-making contraption?

A quick search around and it appears I'm not the only one having this problem.I was having issues. Earlier in the thread a poolsize setting in an ini file was mentioned that helped quite a bit. If you have an nvidia card turning on Adaptive Vsync in the NV control panel for Bioshock Infinite helped quite a bit too.
scottydoesntknow: My only big question is who the hell this guy is:
Fubini: scottydoesntknow: My only big question is who the hell this guy is:SPOILERS BELOW I had a thought on that: the first question is this- who would have possibly left the note? There are actually two notes, the bloodstained one on the door as well as the one pinned to the guy. The only obvious people with the knowledge of your mission are the Luteces. However, given the dimensional funniness coupled with time travel, it could also potentially have been a future-alternate-Elizabeth. So we have two possible agents.Look at the circumstances surrounding the guy: the lighthouse clearly is set up to house a guy for a long period of time (telephone, food, bed). Presumably there is a keeper who stays to guard the entrance to Columbia. Some things are disturbed, which leads us to believe there was some kind of struggle. He's also blinded and has his arms bound behind his back, which seems to imply some kind of captivity, or even torture.My personal thought: he was the lighthouse keeper and was interrogated by the Luteces in order to gain the passcode to Columbia (scroll/key/sword combo). Once they had the code, they killed him and left a note for Booker to reinforce the nature of his mission. In this case, us refers to the Luteces.Another possibility: Elizabeth comes back from the future to open the way for Booker, like when future-Elizabeth comes back and gives a note to Booker for present-Elizabeth. In this case, "us" refers to herself and Booker.Another thought- it's just another alternate-Booker who met a grisly fate somehow. I was thinking about this, and you respawn in the game (when you're not with Elizabeth) by walking out of your office into a bright light. This could be the Luteces repeatedly finding alternate Bookers to take over for the previous Booker whenever he dies, and the story is continuous because once entering a new dimension the new Booker will absorb all the memories of the previous Bookers and would be able to pick up where the last left off.
