[Gamer Time] – Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst

Mirrors Edge Screen 1

The original Mirror’s Edge was something of a cult classic so the fact that the long awaited sequel actually came out is something of an accomplishment already. The way it uses next gen technology to improve on the mechanics that made the first game unique should net developer DICE considerable props.

Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst isn’t just a re-tread of old ideas but, while trying to expand on its formula, the game unfortunately experiences a few stumbles. The addition of an open world to explore seems like it fits right in with modern gaming trends, but over-reliance on timed side missions take away from what could have been a well paced story.

First day out the feds.

The game world looks beautiful and very interesting. However, and i’m not sure if i’m in the minority here, the amount of bright white surfaces found all over the city of glass gave me a bit of a headache and made me wish I had sunglasses. Combat was a nice surprise in this game and is much improved from the first game. If you want to see it in motion, definitely make sure to check out the full video review embedded above.

How you gonna call for backup when I just turned your larynx to spaghetti?

Overall, Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst is pretty good but certain design choices hold it back. If you want to check out the song I mentioned at the beginning of the video, here’s a link.

Video: Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Meets Parkour in Real Life by Devinsupertramp

Screen Shot 2015-07-11 at 5.04.53 PMOne thing I really love is the creativity of directors and the vision they want to portray. DevinSuperTramp does it again with his Videogames meet Parkour in real life. This time he goes with Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. What was really the best part was that they added a female parkourist Aleksandra Shevchenko. Her flips and tricks are insane. Everyone did an amazing job, and you can even see this in 4k quality format!!! Parkour/Free-running stunts performed by the French FreeRun Family. Music composed by Stephen Anderson. Film by Devin Graham using the RED Dragon, filmed in 6k, exported out to 4K compressed for YouTube. Sound design by Dan Pugsley. This video was sponsored by Ubisoft. There was a couple of moments I had to hold my breathe from the suspense from these crazy tricks. In general I really feel in love with the idea of Parkour, especially after playing Mirror’s Edge.
