There's been a bit of shuffling around at the top of the Bioshock Infinite team at Irrational. A couple of days ago Gamasutra indicated that director of product development, Tim Gerritsen and art director Nate Wells had left the company. Gerritsen was responsible for supervising the day to day work of the development team and is rumoured to be headed over to Naughty Dog after a since-removed mention of the Uncharted developers was spotted on his LinkedIn profile.

Creative director Ken Levine mentions Wells' departure on Twitter, saying that "Scott Sinclair, art director of Bio1, back in the art director's chair for Infinite to bring it home. Can't wait to show you what's cooking."


Bioshock Infinite's Motorised Patriot is evil robot George Washington with a gatling gun

I didn't think I'd find myself writing that headline when I woke up this morning. There are big ideas behind the Bioshock games. The wars for Rapture and Colombia are battles between ideologies fought with bullets, each set in a fascinating, twisted dystopia. Never mind all that, though. No matter how smart your game is, there's always room for evil robot George Washington with a gatling gun.

The "motorised patriot" was revealed on G4TV, with comments from Ken Levine. "He's completely fearless," Levine said. "He doesn’t have a sense of self-preservation, so he’ll just keep coming at you and coming at you." Just like George Washington.

Update: There's a video! See the motorised patriot in action below.
