Thingo

Change that red knobby thing into a blue orb, and we then get a Quantum Projector able to shoot Quantumz goodness anywhere needed. Seriously, Columbia turned into a technological backwater when the World discovered The Quantum (Le Quantuum), and 500x as many brilliant minds and 2000X as much money was applied to developing new Modern Marvels, which then proceeded to change the World.

By 1912, "Columbia" was floating in a glass jar in the Smithsonian.




Nowthatsabathysphere

Ostentatious ? Why ride about in a drab proletariat conveyance like the other well-to-do people ??? Not a "Bathysphere", but rather a private sub (BTW, far too expensive for more than a few in Rapture).

Get rid of the faux-science so you can concentrate on the faux-religion and faux-history ...




BringUsTheApeAnd

For all it mattered Elizabeth might as well have been a Mandril. BRING US THE APE AND WIPE AWAY YOUR DEBTS!!! (Actually not so easy to catch those things, which can climb like monkeys and then throw their feces at you ...)




Funnydat

Kinda like having those 'Firemen' goons in a place made of chickenwire and wood lathing and plaster.



Yesletshaveaguyspewingflames

OH LOOK - In a floating city (no place to run to escape), largely made of wood, YES, LETS HAVE A SECURITY GOON WHO SPEWS FIRE !!!!




DailyBodilyWaste

Seriously creepy this.

Tracking intake and export from the 'Subject' is part of this strange 'spying on girl' aspect shown in this game. I suppose it is all in the name of 'science' to investigate this Quantumz Energy thing that we all know that Real Quantum Mechanics are all about. At this point it might have been smart for Booker to Back Away and steal a hover barge and leave this creepy flying city filled with lunatics and then sell it to PAY OFF HIS DEBTS.




Incrediblepuzzle

So this was the intelligence test built into the game to prevent further content from disturbing mentally incompetent Players needlessly (its a puzzle a Retarded Dust Bunny(tm) could solve). OR if failed 3 time in a row does it let you through anyway and causes adjustment of the content to be Cute Ponies and Muppets and all the blood to be sprays of Candy ?? Maybe its a clever premonition for blasting off from the top of a lighthouse in a feeble recreation of a Mercury capsule, and then going to 'heaven' being normalcy for this games reality ???




OhLookeeALynchingToday

This was one Alternate Universe that Elizabeth should NOT have visited.




MassmurderOKifvictimsfaceless

Mass murdering opponents is OK if they are faceless. Modern games long ago discovered that (safe) bodycounts can substitute for imagination. Yes Ken, America in 1900-1910 had stormtroopers everywhere in our American cities ((HE HAD TOO, CUZ MASS SHOOTING OF KEYSTONE COPS WOULD HAVE BEEN JUST SICK !!! )).

Also doesn't it seem funny that the levels you use that "Skyline" in don't have any boxcars/trains blocking their weirdly circular rollercoaster track ... The Game Infinite BS should have been




Whatisthis

This is a map seen in Atlas's lair in Hestia (Apollo Square). I thought I recognized it, and Yes, it is a map of Medical Center. Probably had all kinds of good drugs there -- Atlas needs something to bribe his minions with when even his ADAM has pretty much run out.




Spastichicken

"Le Poulet Spastique"

Isn't that Hemingway trying to pick a fight ? This Place isn't really Avant-garde enough for that.

It is questionable IF all that many artists of any caliber would even come to Rapture, with its tiny venue (and many fewer suckers to buy their 'art').




Cockamamiestuff

Artists license is fine. Unfortunately, when you make what are supposed to be buildings, there are some rather hard rules you need to follow. Combine that with : It really should roughly match another designer's creation (the inside layout), which here make it a bit problematical.

Any artist who knows much about Art Deco knows that it is composed of decorations glued onto a functional structure - NOT the other way around. Unfortunately the same artists who created the Bigified/Gianourmous Fantasy rubbish from Infinite BS, which has now contaminated our Rapture.




Real1900

THIS was modern in 1900 (real).

When you look at Columbia, what is really all that modern about it for 1893-1912 ?? Under that bad Coney Island facade and that creepy Hummel figurine styling the 'artists' created, Columbia really didn't have much of a forward looking aspect. The FloatyShit(tm) and unexplained mechanization was just a clumsy regurgitation of old things (ordinary already).

"Oh But It Floats !!!" Yeah, but very little was done with that - piss poor for Americans who are supposed to be such innovators. Unexceptional BS.

"But They Were Reactionaries !!!" Then why all the weird mechanical shit that WAS there. Shouldn't the population have been aghast at even the idea of living amongst all those satan-born mechanical attrocities ??? They would have stoned Comstock to death, and then burnt Columbia to the ground, no?




MicroColumbia

Infinite BS done as a Grimm Fairytale with Mice ??? Is this Finks Lil Train for SeaSlugs ?? Bet they didn't consider(*) they could have had EVEN MORE salable (and PROFITABLE !!!) Ultra-Violence when they didn't even have Humans any more ...

(*Sound of Ken Levine Slapping his head over and over muttering "Stupid... stupid ... stupid ...")




DontEvenAsk

Don't Even Ask.

In The MMORPG there can be ALL KINDS of delusional stuff presented (and acknowledged that it IS delusion) to expound imagination.




GrandCentralStupidity

An employee entrance ? So Gianourmously grand and with Overblown detail by about 100 times. This is what happens when you have hack artists and writers who haven't a clue about that world they are allegedly having this Columbia place reflect. Turning the place into something so FANTASTICAL even Walt Disney would Vomit At It, really didn't much serve that alleged game theme of criticizing the idea of American Exceptionalism. It reflects nothing real, so any 'social' relevancy they claim (endlessly) is hogwash.
