Watch Game Maker’s Toolkit On Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst

The RPS gang sits around in our secret treehouse every day, chatting about the things we’d like to post more of to the site. One of those things is, “Nice things what we read/watched/heard elsewhere on the internet.” Sure, we already have the Sunday Papers, but wouldn’t this be a more interesting, enlightening, day-brightening corner of the internet if we occasionally pointed and yelled, “Look over there!”

So here, look at YouTube series Game Maker’s Toolkit. Particularly, look at this video of Mark Brown explaining what Mirror’s Edge Catalyst should have learned from Burnout Paradise.

How Do’s Physics Compare To Reality?

I like careful, reflective journeys in as much as Alec does, but my other great vehicular passion is tossing cars down mountains and slamming them into brick walls. There’s no greater game for that than [official site], which although still in alpha has the best physics and damage model of any driving game I’ve ever played. To prove the point, YouTube channel DragCarTV recreated common crash testing scenarios in the game and then put the footage side by side with real crashes to see how they matched up.

I videoed myself playing it from start to finish – in forty-six minutes. And then edited out the filler to halve that length. You can see it in all its glory below.

Watch: Caffeine Really Doesn’t Get Up And Go

The long-promised first-person horror thing Caffeine [official site] is now out, so intrigued by a world addicted to coffee and something about space, I thought I’d take a look. And when everything I touched started spinning around the rooms, I thought I’d better video it. Yeah.

The Forest: Half An Hour Of John Trying And Failing To Hit Animals With An Axe

Having returned to The Forest last week, I really didn’t want to stop playing. I ended up spending an afternoon I’d booked off as holiday back in front of it, and recorded half an hour or so of that. To share! After spotting a giant sinkhole, and being so excited I had to hit record, it’s safe to say there’s some early disappointment. But then as I keep exploring, there’s lots of new things to discover, and indeed needlessly hit with an axe. You can watch it below.
