 ‘Bioshock Infinite’ snap judgment: Taking to the skies, and taking on religion and race 
,
BioShock  | One of the most highly anticipated games of 2013, BioShock Infinite hopes to do for airships and American Exceptionalism what 2007′s BioShock did for underwater cities and Ayn Rand-ian Objectivism. Which is: Make them really, really cool.

 ‘BioShock 2’ review: Can diving back into Rapture ever be the same? 
,
The sheer ambition and scope of BioShock’s storytelling and setting remain nothing less than a revelation. “Steeped in the objectivist philosophy of Ayn Rand” are not words most people ever expected to use to describe a videogame, and the final act’s twist was a true mind-frak that caused me to question the very nature of what it means to play a videogame.

• •The deal report 
,
Angelina Jolie has hopped onto Lionsgate's production of Ayn Rand's epic tome Atlas Shrugged, ending the novel's decades-long slow dance with Hollywood to the big screen. ''It's not going to be your normal movie — (the book is) 1,495 pages,'' explains producer Howard Baldwin (Ray). ''There's two ways [we] can go: [We] can go with two or three movies, or one fairly long movie."
