the title. I had assumed it was named for the venue of the city, the "infinite skies" type thing. Just an completely eye opening, gut wrenching twist. If its not the best ending in games, its close.
I actually had guessed early on that Booker was Comstock. The taunts of Slate in the Hall of Heroes felt a bit forced. "He wasnt at Wounded Knee!" "You know what happened, your a real soldier, hes a tin man!". I figured there would be some sort of time travel twist involved. But as the game progressed i talked myself out of it. And i never saw the rest of it coming, nor the reason as to why they were two different people. The singular moment that it all can be traced back to. My jaw was wide open as the ending unfolded.
I found one bit of oversight. Its noticeably for a game that wrapped up all the ambitious threads of its story so well: who was the "angel" Comstock talked about? The "angel" seemed to play a important part. Comstocks motivation, the cities creation, the destruction of New York...we know the rest of Comstocks prophecies were a result of peering into the future with the "contraption", but that one is never explained. Ive read speculation that it was elderly Elizabeth talking to her "father", perpuating the cycle, but that could easily be people making a connection where there is none. Saying "he lied" does explain it but seems like a cop out for a story that is otherwise so clever at wrapping up loose ends. Thoughts? Did i miss an glaring obvious explanation? Or is this paving the way for DLC material?
And fair point about the company fitting that sound to the new game. But at the same time, i cant recall hearing that sound at other parts of the original game nor another reason why that sound would happen just there. Then again, it honestly wasnt something i thought to note while playing. I only found the video to that easter egg from IGN when looking for other eggs.
