News Comments > Mirror's Edge Catalyst Trailer
5. Re: Mirror's Edge Catalyst Trailer May 25, 2016, 21:34 DangerDog
 
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.

Drift is one of the biggest issues with current Cardboard VR, what they should develop is a way to track eye movement within the VR space for hands free UI control. They sort of have it by moving your head to view a UI element on screen but if you could combine the two you could create shortcuts like moving your eyes to the edge and then center could be a command event, long blink left or right etc.

I still can't get over the stupid setting. I mean North Korea occuping the USA? How could this even be remotely possible?

By 2016 the US had turned to socialism and by 2020 it was a complete failed state much like so many socialist countries before, after much civil unrest and rioting China sends in North Korean proxy armies to establish order from the ruins.

Cart before the horse, all this VR stuff is still too experimental to go mainstream.

Probably your best bet is to go with a case designed to dampen sound and then go with a liquid cooling option. Unfortunately I don't think passive cooling is an option for a gamer unless you also happen to do field studies on antarctic penguins. I want to do the same thing, but have come to the conclusion I can't make a perceptible difference without sending ~$200 on my current rig.

Some of the fans made today are virtually silent, I'm using noctua which are extremely impressive. Passive or liquid cooling your still dissipating x watts of power so one isn't going to lower the ambient temps of a room over another.

At any rate, you always will have that feeling of something better right around the corner to wait for but I really would hold off for the next wave of GPU's and CPU's to do a new build. I'm thinking next fall will be a good time considering by then there will be 3rd party coolers for the 1080gtx which are always more desirable than the reference design - no matter what they say about it being redesigned to be quiet etc.

I fear that they'll make it super casual like what they've done with Battlefront. Pretty much nonplussed by the trailer though, thinking of the scenarios of WWI battles transformed into a game leaves me feeling like it'll be more fun on paper than in reality.

The old guard who made games like BF1942 and BF2 are all gone from DICE, any dreams of a return to the good old days are pretty much hampered by the fact that consoles are the lead platform, specifically the xbox one in this case and that everything is being made extremely casual - look at what they did with Battlefront.

I really hope this game isn't just hot air, the weapon customization alone looks amazing.

unlike this xbox one Battlefield game, escape from Tarkov is a PC game.

yeah, you're totally going to board the Zeppelin airship and take down its generator then parachute to safety.

It'll be like the AC130 where you can't control it and you'll have some really horribly inaccurate guns that lob gas shells onto the battlefield.

I'm sorry but I just don't see this being a success, everything in that scripted hype video doesn't even look good from a gameplay perspective.

Scripted melee takedowns, riding around on horses with a sword while planes circle strafe you, trench warfare while being slaughtered with artillery, slow ass tanks that that are less than nimble to maneuver, airships and battleships - boring to drive and boring to crew.

I get that modern warfare needs to take a rest but they they should have gone all in with a WWII remake over this.
