Only 2 hours long? Well that's a shame, I was hoping this DLC would be more substantial. It does sound pretty interesting though, I might pick it up if it goes on sale sometime.

Wow I didn't know this was divided into two different parts what bummer. Plus, clocking in at 2 hours it doesn't sound like its worth much of my time.
I wonder how much the DLC costs.

Yeah, gotta say that the whole "only lasts about 2 hours" thing is a...pretty hefty negative if you ask me. Sounds like something I could download and knock out before having to go to work. I'll likely get it though since it'll be free for me (I've got a friend that works at Gamestop and he hooked me up with a free Season Pass code when I went to go buy BSInfinite).

Still, I was looking/hoping for more.

I've already paid via season pass but two hours for $15 bucks is their regular price? And they're being all straight faced about it?

I heard from some where (IGN) that the DLC was priced at $5. That's a bit more more reasonable.

You got that wave-based trash that they shat out as well, now you get this, and also part 2 later, if I'm not mistaken.

Yeah I'm pretty clear on what I've paid for. I'm talking about the non-pass regular price of $15 for an hour's worth of content being a bit high.

Does it cost 15$? Is it even out in the US? Cause I don't see it on Europe and it hasn't been downloaded for me, even though I also own the season pass. I doubt it's gonna be that much, but even if it is, if games like Gone Home can charge more than that for less I don't see why Infinite wouldn't, since it actually costs some money to make this.

You mean two hours surely?

It's out on the 12th in all regions as far as I'm aware.

I'm pretty sure it costs $5 per episode.

it's $15 but the season pass is $20 so you may as well get the season pass over buying a single episode though if your not sure probably best to wait till episode 2. You also get clash in the clouds which is kinda meh since it is really just a tacked on horde mode.

That would make a lot of people not happy. If it's $5 per episode, that means you can get both episodes and Clash In The Clouds for $15, which means people who bought the Season Pass spent $5 more than people who bought the DLCs separately and they didn't have a choice on whether they wanted Clash.

I though you also get the DLC map packs with the season passes?
Though my price might be completely wrong there. I'm honestly going solely by what IGN said at the end of their review.

How do I read something that tells me not to read it unless I have finished something that hasn't been released?

Because the review is telling you not to read it until you've finished the vanilla game, not the DLC.

I'm disappointed to hear that the combat is lackluster; if there was anything that would have won me over it was solid gameplay but I guess it's a pass from me then.

You lost me for a second, when the reality warping girl begins summoning samurai warriors into the underwater city, things start getting generic?

Damn I hate episodic gaming, even if it's just an add-on or DLC. I'd rather get my gaming in one clean chunk.

ha ha. I does sound a little bizarre when read like that. I believe he means the game play, not the visuals.

OT: Infinite was probably one of the most disappointing games of all time, for me at least. I think this will be a case of watching a Let's Play instead of getting it, which I'm quite sad about as the original Bioshock is one of my all time favorites.

I also have to wonder about the choice to go back to Rapture. It's probably one of my favorite locations, of any medium. But I feel they might be milking it a bit by going back there. Was Columbia not good enough? (Personally, No, it wasn't) I groaned a little when a fairly major (or should have been, though the characters story was rushed) event happened back in Rapture, but I lived with it as it was just a cameo. But now a whole DLC?

damn, i still have to wait until my pc is fixed. over 2 weeks now since its i have played a game. i have payed for the season pass but cant play it yet. well, at least good to know its good enough to play. even when its short.

Yeah, it's a little short but I enjoyed it way more than I thought that I would have, I enjoyed it and i'm probably going to do another playthrough shortly.

It had an almost survival feeling to it with little ammo and found myself relying on sneak attacks. I genuinely found Elizabeth the best part about Infinite and I like what they've done - and what they will do with part 2.

The original was a definite grower for me, I didn't have any problems understanding the ending and overall plot, I just had felt uncomfortable thinking about it. I enjoyed the game much more the 2nd full playthrough.

The Season Pass gives you golden skins for two guns, a few extra tonics, Clash in the Clouds ($5), Burial At Sea Episode 1 ($15) and Burial At Sea Episode 2 (price TBA).

Here's the kicker: you're right, the early interviews did price BAS1 at $5, I remember that as well because I was wondering how they were going to cover the shortfall of $5 and still claim there was a "savings"; then the lightbulbs got ahold of a calculator and realized they had to do something before the veritable shitstorm of refund demands would come in, which they would have had to honor because the Season Pass description would have been undeniable evidence it was false advertising, so...

They raised the price by $10.

I enjoyed the game despite how nonsensical the ending was, but shit like this just makes my blood boil.
