“BioShock: Infinite” (2013 – $60 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC) is a game with ambitions as lofty as its setting; Columbia, a floating city in the clouds. Players assume the role of Booker DeWitt, a private investigator and former Pinkerton agent with a dark past, who’s sent to Columbia to retrieve an enigmatic girl named Elizabeth in exchange for paying off his debts. As players of the first “BioShock” may expect, the story isn’t as simple as it appears. However, even expectation won’t dampen the story’s impact, and players should avoid spoilers at all costs.

Newcomer 343 Industries have taken control of the successful series with “Halo 4”, beginning a second Halo trilogy dubbed “The Reclaimer Trilogy”.
