DICE: There's a market for Mirror's Edge 2 photo



Parkour platformer, Mirror's Edge, might have a shot at getting a sequel. DICE producer Patrick Liu believes that people are ready for a second game. The original was a critical success, but unfortunately not a commercial one. However, Liu seems confident that a sequel is viable.

We see that there's a huge fan following, it's almost like a cult! And we know what strengths we had, and what weaknesses we had in that game. If we were to release a new game, we'd know what to improve and how to reach a broader audience. So I definitely think there's a market there.

The stylish dystopia and exciting parkour sequences of the original endeared it to me, but the combat felt tacked on. It was a game with a lot of potential and really deserves another chance. There were reports of a sequel being in the works up until February this year, but EA postponed it indefinitely. EA hasn't indicated it's changed it's mind, despite seeing the franchise as important.

Mirror's Edge on iPad and iPhone is yours for free today

Mirror's Edge was a case of hit or miss for many. The game received very mixed reviews and sales didn't seem to be anything worth boasting about. That didn't stop EA from having versions for both iPhone and iPad being ma...more

Mirror's Edge follow-up still being teased by EA

Remember when DICE and Electronic Arts weren't trying to compete with Call of Duty and the result was the stunning and original (but flawed) Mirror's Edge? That was cool. Maybe the game didn't do so well at retail, but I thin...more

The world in my hands

If we're being preposterously basic, videogames are about universes. An unmatchable chance to step into another world and be someone else for a while. It might be fighting against the evil empire or not letting the terrorists...more

la carte: Love thy characters and love their lovers

I joked about the illegitimacy -- not canon! -- of dumb-haired, blonde/blond Robin in Super Smash Bros. recently. I did not ignite a waifu war, but there was talk about the "best," most efficient ways to play Awakening. Shack...more

What's Up: Unreal Tournament, AC Unity, X-Men trading cards, DOOM II RPG

Today there are a bunch of new trailers for games like Assassin's Creed Unity, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and The Last of Us Remastered (which is on sale) but Bill and I would rather talk about superhero cartoons from twenty years ago, and guns we can't remember the names of in Unreal Tournament. more
