From whether we can stand a huge helping of Disney Princess behavior to considering what lurks behind that doorway to the infinite, the Moving Pixels podcast explores the infinite possibilities of Bioshock Infinite.

Normally, we don’t concern ourselves too terribly with spoilers on the podcast.  However, given the rather essential and emotional twists and turns of Bioshock Infinite, we did make an effort to save most of the spoilers until the end of our discussion.


This episode we will be discussing Columbia, Elizabeth, Comstock, Booker, and what that infinite in Bioshock Infinite signifies.  However, we’ll give you fair warning as we approach discussion of the bigger potential spoilers.

The game offers a fresh take on stealth mechanics and character building, as well as a fairly fresh looking universe to play in. This episode, though, we consider if Dishonored has a soul?

With a holiday season stuffed with sequels, it was nice to see a new IP arrive alongside other AAA releases.


The development team behind Dishonored has an impressive pedigree. The game offers a fresh take on stealth mechanics and character building, as well as a fairly fresh looking universe to play in. This episode, though, we consider if Dishonored has a soul?
