Daaaaamn this looks good
Finally, Mirror's Edge Catalyst has gameplay footage available for you all to watch. Thank you gamescom.
So, what did we learn from this new footage? Well, we learned that Catalyst looks a lot like the original Mirror's Edge, with combat discouraged in favour of running and being a rebellious badass.
So, I'm reassured that this should be the Mirror's Edge game I am hoping for. Fantastic news.
Like the chorus to a George Michael song
Mirror's Edge was known for its striking and sharp aesthetic, so it's perfectly reasonable that the Mirror's Edge Catalyst collector's edition would convey those same qualities. This picture shared by EA shows that ...

Coming to Steam, at some point
The melding of those two beloved properties was enough for me to get interested in Hover: Revolt of Games, and then its developers went and cited The Fifth Element as yet another inspiration. For as much junk as there is on ...
I just hope this story is better than the first
When Mirror's Edge 2 was announced I was floored, because the original is one of my favorite games of all time. Why? Because I felt like it was a puzzle game first and foremost, and that the Time Trials were the hea...
Hahahahahahahahha; taking on risks with a gun

Sersiously, I stumbled over whilst walking to the toilet

New Star Wars: Battlefront and Mirror's Edge 2 surprise crowd
EA brought a few new reveals with them today at their E3 conference, alongside of some cringe-worthy sports presentations. To help offset the incredibly awkward "I'll punch you" Dana White UFC speech, Mirror's Edge 2, a new S...

Yep, EA DICE confirmed it. It's happening. Finally confirmed. It looks like Mirror's Edge.
I mean ... do we need to say anything else?
[Editor's Note: Told you! We have some possible details on the game here.]
Characters and setting details
We won't say where these character details come from. But we're pretty sure they're from an upcoming EA game, Mirror's Edge 2. And if they're not, they're from a big franchise game from the same publisher.
The details w...
