In the past week, we have had our minds pretty much completely exploded by Bioshock Infinite. It’s a game that raises a lot of questions, and for all of the answers it maybe-sort of-potentially gives, it leaves a whole lot more things very up in the air and available for debate. So, after scrawling notes on walls in crayon (or, more realistically, constructing what may actually be the world’s craziest Google Doc), scratching our heads, crying in the corner for a little while, and consuming a whole lot of alcohol (it IS us, after all), we decided to record a show with our thoughts. For you!
Two important notes: first of all, just to be really clear, this is a SPOILERcast. We SPOIL the game. If you haven’t played Bioshock Infinite ALL the way through, please do not listen to this show. Play the game first, then come back to us. If you’ve never played Bioshock at all…. what is wrong with you? Anyway, you should probably remedy that, or at least don’t listen to this show, because it’s not going to make a whole lot of sense. Secondly, our audio quality goes a little wonky in the last ten minutes of the show due to a shaky internet connection, so apologies for that.
Let us know what you think, and maybe we’ll do another one of these the next time something breaks our brains! Feedback and love can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Personally, my greatest moments of disturbance involved the creepy renditions of familiar classical pieces such as Bach’s Air on a G String or Pachelbel’s Canon. The latter instance of the two still gives me facial ticks thinking about it.
Thank you ladies for doing this one. I don’t often finish more recent games so spoilercasts are usually lost on me. That being said, your insight into the game made me see some things I didn’t realize. BI is an even greater accomplishment story-wise than I had even realized before listening. You two are amazing.
