Now that Infinite has been out for a month, speculation has started to run rampant for the game’s first DLC release. Fortunately, some semi-hard evidence has emerged that the DLC will likely include a new AI companion character. A peek into a senior 2K Games animator’s LinkedIn profile revealed he had been working on “Providing animation and R&D for a new AI companion character.” Check out the full story here.
The possibility of a new character opens up plenty of questions as to who it will be, or even if the DLC will be focused around Booker and Elizabeth. Given the game’s relatively concrete conclusion to their story, it makes sense that the DLC might focus on some of the secondary characters the story alluded to. Playing as Daisy Fitzroy, Songbird or even the Luteces, would present a way to both change up the gameplay and present Columbia from a different perspective. Do you feel the DLC should stick with Booker and Elizabeth, or change focus to another group of characters? If so, w…Read more >

With the coming release of BioShock: Infinite, the wiki's likely going to be seeing a surge of activity. With every surge of activity comes a surge of new pages that don't need to be there, vandalism or not. With every surge of that thing I said, there comes a need for more administrative activity to stem the tides of chaos. In light of this, I am making myself somewhat available for help. Notice how I say somewhat: like many of the other people on this wiki that are much more dedicated than I've been in the past...well, we won't talk about that, I'm very busy. I'm currently trying to keep up with five college-level courses (in high school, not college, obviously) in addition to a math class that is totally killing me. Most of my time is spent doing homework or studying for something (
or on tumblr but we will also not talk about that), and because of that, I'm not able to sit around and monitor the activity page like I could years and years ago.
However, because things are probably going …Read more >

Title says it all. NECA recently released two new action figures- Elizabeth and a Boys of Silence. Both are 7" tall and Elizabeth features twenty points of articualtion and an actual cloth skirt and the Boys of Silence features twenty five points of articualtion and intricate details. Both are very cool and I hope to pick them up soon. Hopefully, NECA will make more when the game FINALLY COMES OUT.

A new trailer was also released on Jan. 28th. It takes a very interesting format- as if it was an actual documentary from the 80s about the city you'd see on the History Channel. I hope they do a whole series on it- maybe even release an actual sixty minute documentary!
Check it out!- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDcnWFNE_aIRead more >
