    I never finished the first Bioshock, but that seems like quite a lot.

    I'm pretty sure that's because there are actual characters that you talk to throughout the game.

    Bioshock 1's human interaction consisted of an Irish guy whining to you on a radio for the entire game.

    I admire them for trying this, but I really do hope it's not going to turn into a snooze fest. I liked the first bioshock because it had what felt to me like the right amount of dialouge for a game.

    I'm all about not using cutscenes but I hope he doesn't mean the kind of "not cutscenes" we saw in Bioshock 1, where we were allowed to walk around a room while an NPC talked to us through a window

    I really hope you're not chained to a companion the entire game. It could get annoying really quickly if they die (and end the game) or if they're too slow, say the same things over and over again.

    I just want to point out that this could be construed as a bad thing. Infinite so far has been a radical departure from Bioshock as a series (which is, according to them, what they're going for), and having a whole slew of dialogue to overshadow the gameplay can change things so you're paying more attention to what people are saying or doing than what YOU are doing as the player. Bioshock was good because it left you alone when you weren't being told where to go next, being chained to someone the whole game as a chatty companion this time around does not bode well.

    Exactly, Try playing a really dialogue heavy game over again. It's boring because you've already heard everything once before. Plus, with this whole 'Elizabeth' (is that her name? I dunno) shit, the story could turn into one huge cliche/cheesy as fuck.

    I don't think that it should matter like that. I mean, it didn't really matter in bioshock 1 since there was great pacing and it was just pretty great in a lot of fields. It didn't need that much dialog, but when it came it was kind of hard hitting.

    There is a good handful of ways this could be a bad thing rather than a good thing.

    The writing could be rushed/poor.
    It may mean there is a lot of forced talk you have to wade through.
    Your sidekick or other people may talk a hole in your head.
    There may just simply be too much talk for one to handle, and that's potentially game-breaking, really.
    Dialogue may get a higher importance than actually playing. You know, the whole "Let's make a movie in game format".

    Yay?

    Also you bitches are WAY to worried about the whole Elizabeth sexualization thing. She's sadly one of the least sexualized female game characters I've seen in a non-nintendo game. The corset thing is a bit silly but it's not like I'm getting boobs shoved in my face unless I aim the camera at them.

    I'm pretty sure from the gameplay videos cutscenes primarily happen like in HL2 cutscenes, except with the addition of your character making comments/dialog depending on exactly what you are doing/looking at/etc. I think there are moments in the game where it does play out like an "on rails" first person cutscene though, but only for stuff like where elizabeth grabs your hand.

    Or the levels are really fucking long. That's a distinct possibility.

    Of course.

    Edited:

    The game is almost half a decade old, if you haven't played it yet that's your fault.

    I'd imagine most of it is from talking to random NPCS that are bumbling around in the streets. I seriously doubt all that dialogue is forcibly thrown at you.

    This is not a valid augment and never will be, I haven't seen 2001 a space odyssey, it came out in 1968, is it my fault I haven't watched it yet? NO. Dear god Bioshock isn't even that old, don't act like it's too old for spoilers.

    uh sorry but it is, bioshock is an extremely popular game that came out 5 years ago, people will spoil it and it's your problem to deal with at this point

    its not a huge accomplishment really though, the original bioshock took place in an abandoned underwater city with a handful of living people, so it makes sense that a game set in a populated, narrative driven city/campaign you'd have a lot of dialogue

    either way it looks like an awesome game

    So what you go into a thread about an up and coming game (that happens to be a sequel to a fantastic game) and expect there to be no talk about its predecessor? Huh.

    There's a period of time where people will avoid speaking spoilers nowadays, typically a couple-to-a-few months after a movie or game's release. After that 'period', it's pretty much free reign for discussion, as most people who were interested have watched or played it by that time.

    Unless it's Mass Effect 3's ending. In which case, no one's afraid to spoil    how shitty it is.
