Shakespeare on Bioshock Infinite

13 Apr

Possession is one of the most useful vigors in Bioshock Infinite and one of the most evocative as you get it for the first time. In fact it shows up as a beautiful ghost woman seducing whoever you use it against, with a strange melodic sound you couldn’t really understand… until now.
The guys at EveryClickCounts discovered that if you play the sound backwards the woman is saying these exact words:

“Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-browed night,

Give me my Romeo. And when I shall die,

Take him and cut him out in little stars,

And he will make the face of heaven so fine

That all the world will be in love with night

And pay no worship to the garish sun.”
