    Have to agree Songbird is underused to the extent it was built up and many of the preview scenes don't exist anymore.

    I seem to recall an extended fight on a bridge with a metal gorilla (possibly a handyman) that was featured extensively - ah, yes, it was after the 'dead horse' tear.

    Two preview videos:

    One

    Two

    Both very different to the final game, though you can see that certain scenes were put in, just in a different way. Both look better than the final game imo..

    Yes, yes they do :(

    Why is Comstock so much older than Booker when there's only 20 years in it?

    There's also a voxphone that mentions that exposure to the tears has caused him significant acceleration in ageing and degradation of his health.

    Slightly off topic. Infinite and the ultimate rapture collection dropped in the mailbox today. Now I've finished the first game back in 2007, but never played the second. Should I play through that the second one first and then infinite? Are there any story elements I might miss out by playing Infinite first? Truth is I'd rather go for Infinite but don't want to miss out on anything. Any advice?

    B2 was fantastic, the multiple ending were brilliant and for me the 'good' ending one of my favourites of all time.

    I think you're fine to go for it. But maybe stay out of is thread til you've finished the game ;)

    Question for all: is there any significance to which brooch you choose and does it affect the story?

    They're not connected at all so it's fine to play Infinite first. Don't let anyone put you off playing B2 though, I thought it was a great game.

    @Goodfella That's not wholly true...

    During the final sequence with the lighthouses and at the baptism, the necklace seems to come and go, even alternating with the cage or bird depending on which one you chose.

    Interestingly, as a comment on player agency it's a trite point that although you're given a choice (so it's a variable between the universes), it has no perceptible effect. Therefore, unlike the constant of coinflipping (not only by the twins: every time you catch a coin from Elizabeth, it's heads) even imperceptible or aesthetic variables do not seem to alter the timeline.

    My Lizzi changed so much suddenly halfway through the game! Her dress and hair . Did I miss something or did the developers change her? If so that's a bit silly.

    So I guess you don't pay attention much? Do you go for wee breaks at every kind of cut scene?

    Can someone please tell me where the bit with 'dead horse' is? I cant seam to remember seeing it despite the fact everyone is talking about it.

    Anyway my favorite 'emotional' bit is with the guitar in the inn cellar. Was really nice unexpected touch, not important to story or anything just a random event that an excellent studio like irrational would think of.

    The horse isn't in it, just like everything else awesome in the 2011 e3 trailer. So many great things all not in the final product.

    Where was this inn? Never found it.

    Loved it, but not as much as bio1.
    The world was interesting and it kept me playing but it didn't have me as enthralled as Rapture.

    Can't decide if ill replay or not, tempted to get full whack on trade value. Combat seemed rather easy on normal and the vigors weren't as exciting to use plasmids IMO.

    That's what the post-credits bit is: a Booker who was never baptised, but never ran into the Lutece "twins", thereby keeping Anna.
  • Deleted user 29 March 2013 10:51:41
    It doesn't make sense because you are killed before she is born, hence they all start vanishing.

    @Pepsipop i think that its the brooker who had made the choice to be baptised and become comstock was killed there fore preventing Comstock from ever creating clombia and the taking Elizabeth. So th elizabeths you see disappearing are the versions of anna that went on to gain the powers as with out comstock the never come into being

    She kills Daisy which traumatises and bloodys her up. She changes out of the blood soaked clothes and cuts her hair

    Ah, you missed a great little (although unimportant) part of the game.

    It's in Shanty Town, can't really describe where it is but if you go into the cellar there's a chair with an acoustic guitar propped up against it, interact and you play the guitar and Elizabeth sings.
    It's also where you can hear the Bioshock Infinite version of 'Tainted Love' which made me giggle like a twat.

    Combat for the most part isn't that tricky on hard but when a handyman turns up you'll be wishing he hadn't.

    Being revived by Elizabeth multiple times on one particular section for a handyman to leap at you a second later was bloody irritating.

    Use of gear and vigor upgrades (like the traps being set when you kill someone with Murder of Crows/Shock Jockey or the chain lightning effect) made them much more fun for me that the plasmids. Murder of Crows is almost overpowered at how useful it is.

    Loved the game, loved the story and will certainly play through it again.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    @Whizzo On normal the handyman battles were crap! Just spammed with a volleygun and the devil vigor and down they went. None of the fear that you got seeing a big daddy patrolling.

    See I set far more traps in bio than I did in this because I never felt the need to, enemies dropped with a carbine and an explosive weapon fairly easily. Sounds like I should have played on hard doesn't it.

    @Goodfella I thought I was quite thorough but certainly missed the guitar which made that video a little out of place for me :D

    I played on normal and still found the Handyman fights to be tough. Had an awesome moment where I was stood on top of a building and one was across a balcony quite a way off, and he lobbed a person at me which sent me flying to the ground. I didn't see that coming and it was really awesome. I enjoyed those fights a lot.

    I didn't use traps much either, mainly because holding L2 took too long in the heat of battle. They worked better in Bioshock because most of the areas were tight, in this they're mostly wide open so they weren't as useful. Sometimes it was good to spam the shock jockey trap though.
