News Comments > Mirror's Edge Catalyst Released

Having played the beta I was actually surprised the kung-fu combat came off as well as it did, I was expecting a ton of "press X key" quicktime events. I still think it was a mistake to remove the guns from the game, feels a little too much like forced political correctness. They could of had some Biathlon type missions where you need to parkour and then shoot and parkour some more.

Of course they had to nerf the AI somewhat, if you're engaged with an enemy the others wait their turn.

The lifeless feeling plays into it's "beautiful solitude" design ascetic. I would have put more off area crowds behind inaccessible glass walls looking up and pointing or generally running and screaming when enemy AI start shooting. I think they could have done something while not directly interfering with the players ability to do speed runs.

One thing seems apparent, there won't be any more games in this series. EA said it was up to the players and it seems that it's receiving a rather temped response.

Totally got the racing vibe from the beta, I'm more of an explorer though. Too bad when you go places you're not really meant to go the illusion breaks down worse than a day at Disneyland when you peek behind the facade.

I can really get into the style and design of the ultra clean city but maybe they should have switched it up where you start off in a city of Glass but end up in some outer slum like area where the effects of the oppressive conglomerate are realized.

It's also a little too void of life and activity, massive city but it seems so empty.

Free or not, it makes no difference.

Goliath's like Disney are slow moving but will destroy the lives of everyone involved in the project.

People never seem to learn, if you want to do something like this you go completely under the radar and just release it anonymously to a torrent. If they can't trace it back to the source it they can't shut it down.

Disney shut these guys down for using "light swords"

Sim Tower suffered from performance issues once you created something resembling a skyscraper. The concept is cool but I would rather have something more realistic and at least 3/4 3D perspective instead of 2D.

Complaining to Valve about lack of VR headset support is barking up the wrong tree, complain to Cyan if you want to get your headset supported.

This looks like another lifeless walking simulator. Interactive NPC AI is really hard work apparently.

Single player would be awesome but I don`t see this happening

Duuuuuudddeee. Easy. SP campaign has been confirmado (though it will apparently come out later as DLC or something):

http://www.ign.com/articles/2016/02/07/titanfall-2-will-have-a-single-player-campaign

Oh man, not the TV tie in crap again. I mean it could be done as some sort of mocap cartoon using in game assets but these things get blown way out of budget scope.

Now it all makes sense why DICE went WW1 for Battlefield though, 2142 sequel would have been at odds for Tittyfall 2.

I'd rather have had BF2142 sequel myself.

These are all from the days of the Amiga, they did an HD remake of Wings and Defender of the Crown.

They forgot to upgrade the gameplay though.

All those console kiddies throwing a temper tantrum over a couple of weeks delay. Bigcry

Considering how unaccommodating gamers are to open sandbox games like Elite Dangerous I can't see this being a success without a hand holding scripted campaign.

Yeah, that part isn't for me. I would have been more interested in exploring the city if it were more detailed. I guess it's down to priorities but you don't even need to glitch out of the confines of the playable area to see the lack of detail. I'm not expecting the full version to be any different than the beta, they're down to the wire and are just fixing bugs.

I love stuff like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQnl_yxEGi8

I can spend hours just walking around in a game world like GTA V and check out the architecture and textures, but in Catalyst the attention to detail drops off a cliff when you explore instead of being a reward onto itself.

Played the beta for a few hours and although it's touting the new Frostbite engine it didn't seem much improved from the first one, on the surface it looks and plays well enough but the open world aspect falls flat if you go off script and want to do any urban exploration.

The open world missions were repetitive and boring, I'm not into doing perfect runs to get a fast time on a leader board. It felt like a lot of the pseudo open world racing games that EA makes, the fact that they're virtually devoid of life makes the experience less than ideal and that's the vibe I got from the beta, pretty on the surface but don't look too closely otherwise it falls apart and the corners cut start to show.

I imagine if you just stick to the scripted story it'll be worth a playthough but I'll wait for a discount price before taking the plunge.

Im short(or near)-sighted. I wonder if I would need to wear glasses, considering the RIFT's screen is actually pretty close to one's face anyway?

only way to find out is to try one on, I'm near-sighted and can use google cardboard without glasses just fine.

Maybe you could get a pair of glasses that would work better with the Rift? I don't think contacts would be a good fit for gaming because you tend to not blink as much when playing games intensely.

Palmer even said that there wouldn't be such locks on VR software for the Rift, that didn't last long.

Riftbook will have to unleash their army of lawyers now.

I wouldn't say never on a story campaign, I just don't think they have the modules in place to do it up right. Wait till you can walk around inside ships and on space stations.

It was the right decision financially, captured the hype of the new movie even though there's zero content that ties it to the force awakens directly (yeah there's that one map Jakku but it's set in the OT time period).

Also, if the movie had bombed they would have lost a lot of money. The movie should have bombed, it was a horrible Star Wars movie.

The rumor is that the next battlefront will be based off of Rouge One, again set in the OT time period - they can recycle all the assets from the first one so that makes sense.
