While no actual action is revealed, it still has some spoilers so be warned for those wanting to sustain the excitement until launch.

does look very good and the gameplay seems creepily unpredictable

Looks interesting, but why do they give him a gun and then strap him to a chair that shakes the gun into a furnace. Seems a bit pointless.

Why the hell does his head spin 360 degrees when he sits in the chair?

And the rain was moving with the camera too, looked a bit silly.

Maybe this acension rocket that the old gun is lost to is how Booker enters the rapture of zephers and mono sky rails that have been shown in previous clips

Midda the 360 looks like it's a matinee event (it's how the unreal engine handles cutscenes) and not the head spinning. They do seem to be using it more in unreal engine games for dramatic effect, don't like it either.

The rain droplet animated texture does seem to move with the boat object until you reach the ladder at the dock, maybe an oversight or just something the Xbox 360 version which looks like what we're seeing this from has a bug with. Maybe the storm cloud is moving at exactly the same pace with the rowboat and yeahhhhhhhh not a bug just an unreal engine feature.

Dishonoured uses the UE3 engy too and seemed to overuse matinees in places and it kinda made it too nauseating for me, surely Irrational haven't over cooked the use of things like cutscenes with this and it will be an outstanding work of art.

I friggin love the Bioshock series, really hanging out for this one

shouldnt it go without saying that the first five minutes of a game is a spoiler?

I thought that showing the game off using better hardware (PC) to produce lush graphics and smooth frame rates would have been better.
