    Bioshock Infinite is a tour de force. I actually sat through the half hour of credits at the end. First time I’ve ever done that, and I’ve been playing computer games since 1968.

    Wombat: As someone who loves the first two (and has played through them each multiple times), let me say that Bioshock Infinite is fabulous, and you owe it to yourself to pick it up now that it’s (presumably) $20 or whatever. Elizabeth is one of the best NPCs in all of gaming, and the setting of a golden city in the sky is as incredible and every bit as fascinating as Rapture.

    But most importantly, you need to get Infinite in order to play the two “Burial At Sea” DLCs, which has the protagonists from Infinite travel to a Rapture of 1958, *before* all hell breaks loose in 1959. You get to see Rapture as it was in its glory. And learn lots of additional backstory re. Ryan, Fontaine, Suchong, the Big Daddies, and everything else.

    Well, maybe I’ll take you guys up on that suggestion. If only for the “Burial At Sea” DLCs, which Steam will throw in for free.

    Warlord and Conqueror comprise the best mil SF series, no, the best mil SF written.

    This is not to take away from Starship Troopers, or Falkenberg’s Legion, or Jannissaries #1, or Troy Rising, or Last Centurion, or even Col. Kratman’s Carrerraverse, or Caliphate.

    David Drake and Eric Flint have also turned Belisarius into the central character in another series of books, this one set in Belisarius’ actual time period here, Recommended.

  • Wombat_socho

    Yeah, I picked up one of that series by mistake, thinking it was a reissue of Drake’s horror anthology FROM THE HEART OF DARKNESS, and thought I should read the rest, but never got around to it for some reason.

  • Wombat_socho

    I would have to agree that it’s better than those, but not better than John Ringo’s Posleen War novels.

  • SDN

    Well, that’s book 2; Book one is An Oblique Approach, and both are in Thunder at Dawn that I linked to.
