BioShock Infinite Introduces The Handyman
The second video showing off the “Heavy Hitters” of BioShock Infinite (essentially a big step up from your average enemies, akin to the Big Daddies of the older games) has been released online, and this video focuses on the grotesque Handyman. A Frankenstein’s Monster-esque creation, the Handymen are the direct results of mixing human biology with mechanical parts, and this equals out to a hulking mechanical brute that will use its surprising agility to literally bash your head in throughout your exploration of the floating city of Columbia.
These creations are pretty damn creepy, and certainly add to the overall atmosphere of the failed utopia of Columbia; oddly enough, you do end up feeling a sense of sympathy to the Handymen, as you can only imagine the horrors these former people went through in the process of becoming these abominations. That sympathy quickly goes away when the hulking brute rams right into you though, so feel their pain while it lasts.
There will be more “Heavy Hitters” videos released in the near future, so it will definitely be interesting to see what other failed experiments we will see in BioShock Infinite!
