5 Minutes in BioShock Infinite's Rapture Shows a City Before the Fall

We're goin' back to Rapture ... Rapture ... with Booker and Elizabeth in Burial at Sea, the first downloadable extension to BioShock Infinite, and if you have to ask why they ended up there and Booker is a Sam Spade caricature, you probably have not finished the game.

It's nice to see Rapture looking so lovely before everything went Lord of the Flies, however, though you definitely catch the whiff of an arrogant idealism due for karmic smackdown. There's a spoiler warning at the beginning of the trailer, so heed it unless you're fully caught up on events, or don't if you just want to skip to the good stuff.

Burial at Sea is due to release sometime this holiday season; it'll cost $15.

DISCUSSION

Bioshock Infinite wasn't that good, so I'm trying really hard not to want to buy this, but I've got nothing but happy memories of my last time in Rapture—during Minerva's Den (developed by the guys who released the amazing Gone Home) and Bioshock 2. So... part of me's like YESYESYES

and the other part's like "BUT INFINITE WAS PRETTY BAD" (if you're going to disagree with me, at least have the courtesy to respond to what I've written in the link there rather than say 'nuh-uh')

And I don't know what to do.
