#Icarus is the new #Darksiders2

I spent part of my day playing the Mirror's Edge Catalyst beta. Pretty good! I'm basically in agreement with Steven's recent preview. Outside some of the junk that DICE shoved in, probably at the behest of EA to satiate the masses that...

 
HANDS-ON STE-VIEWS
I can't remember a single character from the original Mirror's Edge, a game I love a lot. DICE's (Battlefield) unexpected cult hit, now eight years old, was laudable. The first-person perspective offered a refined, grounded f...   read

Mirror's Edge Catalyst has been delayed

Say it with me -- release dates are subject to change. EA has just announced that Mirror's Edge Catalyst will miss its originally intended date of May 24. Instead, it's being pushed back by two weeks and will hit on June 7 in the US an...

Mirror's Edge Catalyst recommended PC specs are rough

A pal just explained to me that 16GB of RAM is "the new standard," so maybe you're all immune to the sticker shock, but I've still only got 8GB of RAM, damn it, so a literally doubled recommendation? That's pretty big. I wonder how much lon...

What is the silliest ability you've had to unlock in a game?

Earlier this week, the increasingly-homeless-looking Steven Hansen wrote up a preview for DICE's upcoming Mirror's Edge Catalyst. He briefly mentioned that new skills have to be unlocked. "An upgrade tree? Why?" Steven asked, rhetorically. ...

Mirror's Edge Catalyst's closed beta is fast approaching

More than two months after learning of a Mirror's Edge Catalyst closed beta, we now know when it'll take place. It has crept up on us, starting very soon -- next week, in fact. Alongside an embargo lifting for the latest round of Mirro...

Hopefully Mirror's Edge Catalyst has a better story than the first

Like everyone else, I was disappointed with the narrative of Mirror's Edge, but it absolutely didn't break the game for me. I had fun treating it like a puzzle game, and saw the campaign as a massive tutorial for the real meat, the tim...

Come peep glimpses at Mirror's Edge Catalyst gameplay

Just last week two Mirror's Edge Catalyst developer diaries focused on "Combat" and "Movement," but today's focuses on "Gameplay" and -- wait, what? So help me if combat and movement aren't part of gameplay (also, if combat is a big part o...

These Mirror's Edge Catalyst clips summarize the best and worse parts of the first game

If the first Mirror's Edge had zero combat mechanics, I'd be happy with it. But EA is still going with that angle with Catalyst, noting that "fluid combat is the one key pillar in the gameplay." If you say so! Though the removal of gu...

Mirror's Edge Catalyst is getting a closed beta, and you can register now

Before Mirror's Edge Catalyst releases on May 24, you have an opportunity to take it for a test drive and kick the wheels a little bit. Well, "test run" might be a more appropriate term considering this game is all about free-running. ...

The very first level of Mirror's Edge is being remade in Dying Light

I know the original Mirror’s Edge like the back of my hand. That’s doubly true for the very first level, as it was in the demo, and is also the best level in the full release. I’ve probably played that level hundreds of ti...

Mirror's Edge Catalyst pushed back to May 2016

Mirror's Edge: Catalyst
When Mirror’s Edge came out in 2008, nobody really knew what to make of it. The game was a valiant effort at doing first-person parkour well, but a lot of people were put off by some awkward controls, bad combat, and pe...   read

Mirror's Edge 2 to 'refine' first-person combat, probably be ruined

EA taking risks on things like Star Wars, other new IP
