BioShock Infinite

BioShock Infinite is an upcoming installment in the popular Bioshock video game series. Plot-wise, it is not directly related to its predecessors, but the game does retain similar gameplay mechanics and themes. Infinite begins in 1912, when the game’s protagonist – a detective named Booker DeWitt – is sent to a floating city of Columbia to rescue a young woman, Elizabeth, who is imprisoned there.

In addition to various weapons in the game, players can use Vigors and Nostrums to augment their character. Vigors are active powers that require charges to use. Nostrums are passive enhancements, similar to Gene Tonics in the previous BioShock games. Using either of these items has a permanent effect on your character, so you should think carefully before choosing a power, seeing how only a limited number of Vigors can be equipped.
