Beyond Good And EAvil: The Humble Origin Bundle

THE WORLD HAS GONE CRAZY. First Activision took some progressive (well, by Activision standards, anyway) steps with Call of Duty, and now EA's teamed up with Humble Bundle to host a bonkers sale whose proceeds go entirely to charity. It consists of eight titans of electronic artistry (or whatever EA's "A" actually represents these days) both past and present, which by the mega-publisher's count comes out…

Mirror’s Edge, Skyrim, More To Get Oculus Rift Support

I preemptively think I'm gonna be sick. Don't get me wrong: there are few things in this world I want more than Oculus Rift virtual reality for my mad dash through Mirror's Edge's theme park of parkour, but now that it's probably going to happen, I realize that I should probably bid farewell to any lunches I've had in the past couple months. And who…

Listen, Shut Up, DICE Are NOT A Battlefield Factory

As the decidedly not very good Medal Of Honor: WARFACEFIGHTER received its critical pannings, one refrain was repeated again and again: they're the games EA puts out on the year's DICE don't have a new Battlefield ready. That may well be true, but EA are now at pains to point out (not necessarily in reaction, I should say) that DICE are not "a Battlefield factory".…

Have Faith: Mirror’s Edge “On The List” For A Return

Are you sad? Tired? Angry? Upset because you spilled some milk and, contrary to popular opinion, it was in fact the end of the world after all? Well, don't be. Today is a happy day, because criminally underrated first-person runner (with some shooty bits that should've leaped off a building and never looked back) Mirror's Edge is on the comeback trail. For a while, it's mostly…

Disposable Worlds And Imagining Brink 2

Playing Brink this weekend made me worry. But not about the usual things. I was worried that there would never be another way to experience the details of its world - no possibility for further exploration of the Ark and its precarious situation. This isn't something I normally think about when faced with a multiplayer shooter. I certainly had no interest in finding out more…

S-hardly Fair: Mirror’s Edge 2 Canned?

Edit: Superior translation added, courtesy of RPS reader Shadewind. All aboard the speculation train to Miseryville! VG24/7 reports that Swedish site Press2Play has posted an article (Googletranslate version here) detailing a brief chat with DICE General Manager Patrick Soderlund in which he describes that development of the sequel to the 2008 parkour-inspired adventure game has "stalled". Then again, he also says that "the parties involved…

Blunt Edge: Tim Langdell Is Suing EA

I've written about this already, so I'll just leave it as a link for you fine people and let nature take its course. But yes, the saga continues: the notorious Tim 'Edge Games' Langdell is trying to arrange an injunction against and damages from EA's Mirror's Edge. That he's after the biggest of all targets this time - well, it's either proof of just how…

RUN: Mirror’s Edge Editor Jimmied Free

Beyond Unreal have picked up on the Mirror's Edge community discovering something interesting. More details in the link, but basically involves copying the wxRC and wxRes folders from UT3\Binaries to Mirror's Edge\Binaries and then running the Mirror's Edge executable with an editor modification thingy to the file's properties. Here's a custom map the community have magicked up. You may have to be quick, however. Chatting…

Mirror’s Edge Third Person Hack

Alec pinpoints Mirror's Edge's failures and successes like a laser-guided missile of critical accuracy in last week's Wot I Think. When playing it recently, I was extremely surprised to find the game making mistakes that were ironed out of the Tomb Raider/Prince of Persia games years ago, as I haplessly tried to guide the suicidal Faith away from her determined attempts to plunge off every…

Wot I Think: Mirror’s Edge

Here comes an awkward metaphor: Mirror’s Edge (the delayed PC version of which was finally released last week) is hiding in the closet. Unsurprisingly, this only makes life difficult for it. For every moment it pretends to be an FPS, it feels wrong, and to any onlooker it’s visibly uncomfortable in this assumed role. If only it would cast off this sham and reveal its…

Ninth Art Meets Tenth Art: Games To Comics

I found myself chatting to Rhianna Pratchett yesterday about her just released comics spin-off of Mirror's Edge. Well - the first part of six anyway (First pages here). It's been interesting for her. As she tells to CBR, it's her first work in the medium, and she had to do some serious thinking about its strengths and limitations before doing so. Which got me casually…

Moving Pictures Of Mirror’s Edge

I loves me some Mirror's Edge trailers, even if every time I post one I later find it's over 3000 years old, recently dug from an archaeological dig. Anyway, look, if it turns out there was some special meeting to which everyone was invited but me, where they showed these trailers to you and you all had an excellent time, and there was probably cake,…

EndWar Delayed Because “Piracy’s killing PC”

Sorry to get into this again, but as much as I want to ignore it, this one's significant. Ubisoft have stated that they're artificially delaying the launch of EndWar on PC because of, you guessed it, piracy. Talking to VideoGaming247, Ubisoft Shanghai director and former Total War "Evangelist", Michael de Plater said, "To be honest, if PC wasn’t pirated to hell and back, there’d probably…
