Just about every games critic that was able to get their hands on BioShock Infinite at the various press events over the last year has absolutely been wowed by the breakneck game-play and original environment that has been showcased by Irrational. Ken Levine and the folks at Irrationial Games look to once again grip the minds of gamers and critics with the release of the first part of their two part video series titled: “The People Behind Booker and Elizabeth.” The video features Ken speaking with Courtnee Draper and Troy Baker, who play main characters of Booker and Elizabeth respectively. Ken also talks about Irrational’s focus on expanding on the immersion that was achieved with the original BioShock’s world by using voice actors that inhabit the main character’s role and breath a unique life into them.
BioShock Infinite is set for a 2/1/2011 release and continues to keep my interest with every bit of information that is released about the game. Thankfully the game comes out a few days before my birthday, a perfect reason to have a little staycation fun.
