@ #3

It's Troy Baker :p

He was(is) primarily a anime voice actor before switching over to games, but he's been in quite a few things recently: Jake from Resident Evil 6 and the ISA Forces announcer from Black Ops II most recently.

Awesome video. Doesn't really give away a whole lot. More of a cliffhanger type thing, where if we all weren't hyped up enough already, you definitely will be after this. What I would do for a time machine right about now.

I contributed to something on this site. Woo!

As for the trailer itself, it's nothing that will ruin the game forever. I will say that those opening five minutes do a great job of introducing you to Booker and his mission. It's only five minutes of footage, but if the rest of the game is like what the previews have said, we're in for a hell of a treat come March.

@14 - Because he is a clueless dbag that likes spouting nonsensical bullshit while having no real clue about what he is talking about?

I say leave his comment. It's obvious he is a sad sad little person who is only too happy to make himself look like an asshole for even the smallest amount of human interaction.

@21, yeah it's probably meant to look like the lighthouse at the start of the first Bioshock and Booker getting the little box at the start is another homage to the first games opening sequence.

#9 is trying to wind people up, which is clearly working on some of you.

BioShock Infinite will beat every games in 2013 for best game. Well I hope so. lol

GTA V is my 2nd top games in 2013. BioShock Infinite is first and most important to look forward to.

Many previews, videos and screenshots showing how this game is beautiful for gameplay, graphics and story wise etc... :)

This won't teach you anything you hadn't learned from the trailers. It's safe to watch.

I've been hearing about this for over two years. Is there going to be anything left to look forward to when we get our hands on it? Or will they show me every enemy, the beginning, the middle and the end before it ever hits shelves? For fuck sake.

I wouldn't term anything in that video as a spoiler. Its only the first 5 or so minutes of what you are going to see when you start the game...Basically how Booker gets to Columbia...

I would recommend that all of you that are "holding back" watch the video. I swear it won't ruin anything for you.
