    Just out of interest, hows the PC running it?

    I'd imagine the A10 is well able to handle it at 720p, are you playing on higher detail settings @1080p or just leaving at the default?
    I've just realised that maybe I should lower the resolution then as I think I trying to play it at max res but gradually lowering the quality of the graphics.

    Maybe I should aim for 720p but with medium settings and I'll achieve the middle ground?

    Then it's a case of getting a decent key binding. I'm finding the keyboard an unruly input device for gaming.

    Maybe I need a mouse with more buttons or a specific gaming keyboard. Maybe both. Maybe a pad.

    Thoughts?

    360 pad is percent for the game, couldn't imagine playing it with anything else...

    Horrible, horrible motion sickness form this :-(
    Hopefully increased FOV will help or I'll have to abandon it.

    Or just stay off the sky-rails as much as possible. That'll make the Handyman fights bloody hard though...

    It's even without the rails :-(

    I'll try again tonight at full FOV.

    hey guys,

    I just completed the game but it looks like I'm about a month or two late!!! is there anywhere people are still discussing the ending?

    Great game, one of those you find really hard to put down right from the get go (except for the autosave feature!)

    @JiveHound

    Yea go with 720p, possibly medium settings all round (you may need to drop it lower).

    Also as widge said go with a 360 pad. Try to get your hands on a wireless one, for care free PC gaming. Especially with single player games. If you want to venture online you'll probably need to go m+kb but otherwise I never bother anymore.

    Big TV+PC+Pad and I'm satisfied. It's how I played it too, I believe there were complaints again over mouse controls in this anyway.

    The Bioshock infinite spoilers thread is full of discussion here.

    @mikew1985

    Thanks Mike. I reduced the resolution and it's made a world of difference. I'm actually very happy with its performance and the vibrancy of the visuals is a cut above current gen consoles.

    I'm definitely going to grab a pad as I'm not getting on with keyboard and mouse. There are too many commands for me to use the keyboard comfortably.

    Is it a case of plug in and play? Seems too easy if that's the case.

    For wired pads - yes.

    Wireless - no.

    You need a dongle which is nigh on impossible to find sold separately from a controller. I think there are knock offs available on ebay, but I've heard tell of blue screen crashes and sudden deaths aplenty with them.

    Alternatively you can buy a controller for it specifically:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Microsoft-Xbox-Wireless-Controller-Windows/dp/B004JU0JSA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1369730132&sr=8-1&keywords=wireless+360+controller+pc#productDescription

    Once you have the wireless dongle it's as simple as syncing the pad to the PC just like you would a 360.

    Also worthy of note - a wireless pad will not work even if connected via USB as none of the controller commands are sent over the wired connection, it is merely a means of powering the device.

    I really want a wireless one, but waiting for the next gen revision now.

    Using wired for the time being, its fine. Cable is immense so no front room issues there.

    Having serious issues with the keyboard now. It just doesn't seem to want to work. The mouse is fine.

    They're both stock peripherals that came with my HP Pavilion. They share the same wireless dongle.

    Has anyone else had any keyboard issues? I've tried changing the graphic settings down from Medium through to Very Low to no avail.

    The keyboard is working fine in the web browser though.

    I don't know whether it's an issue with the fact Steam is still telling me to upgrade my graphics card drivers.

    I think I'm going to wait until I get a pad later in the week before attempting to continue with this.

    Second playthrough done. And still one of the best games ever.

    What a game.

    I'm playing through on 1999 mode now and it's just... brutal o_O

    Combat doesn't feel floaty anymore all of a sudden, it feels like a puzzle with three solutions at most and that requires meticulous planning, quick thinking and quick reflexes either way.
    The enemies seem to be a lot smarter as well, not just bulletspungy (which they are too to some degree, unfortunately)

    Almost all my money has gone into resurrections and ammo thusfar. Upgrades seem like a pipe dream :/

    Still loving it though :)

    Well I always wanted to see what Rapture looked like in it's prime, now I get my wish and in the Noir style to boot.



    I'm looking forward to enjoying the vital Noir detective scenes, like the smoke filled office, the toot talking bar, the dark alley and the rooftop finale.

    Yep. I expext I will be buying the game a second time just for that. This dlc sounds rather interesting.

    Shame the first dlc release is a bit shit. I missed playing minerva's den due to the same thing with B2. Crap first dlc made me ditch that before knowing a decent dlc would be produced later. :(

    Clash in the Clouds is far from crap. It's just a fun stop gap to tide us over.

    I actually let out an audible 'wow!' when I found out about that.

    ... I was one of those who immediately downloaded the season pass after I watched the majestic ending so, I guess I shall pop my Xbox 360 on for the first time since I finished BioShock Infinite four months ago!

    Just suddenly realised how poor the Xbox 360 has been in the last four months compared to the PlayStation 3.

    I was talking about the first dlc for bioshock 2 being crap. And my sadness at missing playing minerva's den after mistakenly expecting any further dlc to be mp related too.

    However, the current B:I dlc does not interest me either. I want story dlc for bioshock. That's what it does best. I don't want horde mode or mp stuff.

    Take it Clash in the Clouds isn't out on PS until tomorrow or whenever it is they update the store?

    Still, very much looking forward to the later DLCs. Rapture has to be my favourite video game world. Hoping for some Borderlands level of quality/value though considering the time it is taking to put together. 6 hours gameplay per DLC at least, please.

    @ecureuil Apparently it's set on the day the first bombs went off and the actual, complete collapse came on New Years Eve the next year. Though I had no idea bombs had anything to do with it so I'm just going by what I've heard and read.

    I am really looking forward to this though, I love the sound of meeting some of the characters from the original Bioshock before they went completely nuts! I just hope the Luteces show up.

    I need some push to actually play through this. The amount of violence has put me off. Worth persevering until the appaled voices in my head stop?
