It’s Bioshock Infinite. Also: George Washington is a steampunk robot programmed to do nothing but kill you. Yes, this means: STEAMPUNK GEORGE WASHINGTON TERMINATOR. Let’s watch, shall we?
Despite what the video says, the Heavy Hitters are clearly Infinite‘s Big Daddies — powerful, memorable enemies that requite a shit-ton of ammo to beat. And that’s fine with me. Getting to fight an evil robot George Washington sounds 100% awesome. What’s even more exciting is that Ken Levine didn’t say “Heavy Hitter,” he said “Heavy Hitters” — which means there should be more than one Founding Terminator to fight. Maybe John Adams? Lincoln? Ben Franklin on a flying kite that he shoots electricity from? A seductive robot Betsy Ross who throws flaming American flags at you? Oh, I can’t wait for this game.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
