Several years ago, we used a program by Gildor to obtain models, textures, etc. from BioShock and BioShock 2. Now that BioShock Infinite is a few days from release, I inquired if support may be attempted for it: http://www.gildor.org/smf/index.php/topic,1768.html

It all seemed very average - until the end, where they made the blatant claim of BioShock Infinite launching June 1st. I quickly clicked the given link, only to be presented with a Release Dates list where BioShock Infinite was only listed as "2012 TBA." This greatly saddened me. After looking up exactly what day June 1st was, I saw it was a Friday. Nowadays, I find it rare to hear of a game not released on a Tuesday or Thursday, they blatantly lied...
The point of this story: If you see any release dates anywhere, don't jump to the conclusion they know what they're doing. Only trust the most official, direct sources. And even then, do your resear…Read more >
