BioShock Infinite 1999 Mode Announced
Paying homage to challenging games of old (and in this instance, more specifically System Shock 2), Irrational Games has announced 1999 mode for BioShock Infinite. Essentially, 1999 Mode will make player's customization choices for Booker permanent, and weapon uses will be restricted and the game's health system will be different, amongst other changes.
Unlike most games of today which ridiculously hold your hand through the entire experience in an attempt to increase the customer base, if players select the 1999 Mode in BioShock Infinite they're going to be in for a more hardcore and serious challenge when they traverse Columbia.
For more details on this exciting mode, which I'm very, very happy about, you can read the official announcement here.
