So, Irrational Games is doing a series of videos highlighting Bioshock Infinite’s “Heavy Hitters”, which is Irrational’s name for extra tough enemies designed to make you s–t your pants whenever they appear. They kind of blew their load right off the bat last week, when the first video focused on the Motorized Patriots (aka the killer robot George Washington guys), but this week’s Heavy Hitter, the Handyman, is still pretty cool/intimidating.
The Handyman is basically Frankenstein’s monster with giant creepy doll-hands. He can toss you around with those big hands, or he can toss other characters/enemies at you. According to Levine the Handyman/men have a tragic backstory — you know, just like pretty much all the enemies in all the Bioshocks.
Hit the jump to check out video of the Handyman in action…
Man, Bioshock Infinite is a pretty game — I just don’t know if I’d be able handle playing it. I’m not great with first-person games to begin with, never mind ones where giant Frankenstein dudes made of doll parts fly at me like enraged gorillas.
