Some new stuff for Mirror's Edge

Some new stuff for Mirror's Edge

Digital Illusions offers a variety of concept art for its upcoming Mirror's Edge awaited on PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. The abondance of colors is catchy, a welcome change from the boring filters used by many other developers.

No quite sure, but I'm loving it! The art is really amazing, atleast...in these screens.

I'm assuming these are bullshots atleast, especially when reading the previews of this game regarding it's visuals, which definitely don't rhyme with what we're seeing here. But I'm hoping the game can come somewhat close to this in the end.

The gameplay really intrigues me, and worries me at the same time. I'd really like to see them pull this one off. Here's for hoping!

I really like the style too. I'm glad the game isn't JUST on rooftops, I like the kind of variety I'm seeing here.

It's nice to know at least a few western developers can still make colorful games.

the chairs looks a bit crap, really the second one is the only one i dont like, the rest are great tho, no better then what you get from other places. but great non the less.

in the context of the game, its just a tube station i understand, so its a bit boring, not really showing anything. but i love the way the metal looks so real just by sutle highlights and the wall looks so smooth and real i know exacly what it feels like and can alsmost feel it myself!

and yeah, theres alot of great concept art for other games too, which i also think is amazing. game artists are very talented!! i wish i could do what they do!

oh my, DICE rocks :)
but if the game should render a whole city, how big it will be? :0
btw I dont see any passersby yet

OMG.

Finally I'm excited by a game. It's been a while now, but boy does it feel good.

GAH. I have massive hopes for this now, it just seems SO right. If they can nail the smooth parkour thing, then I'm sold. A nice touch is the angle changes of the POV, which is far cooler (if a bit weird) than the normal, static FPS view. Probably make it seem as if you're actually looking from the characters eyes.

This is random, but has there ever been a game where if someone punched you, you could see the fist filling the screen?
Commented on 2008-03-10 02:54:34
might be a sweet game if the animations dont suck ass. But for some reason, i can already picture the animations sucking...oh and if it actually looks as good as those screens. need gameplay videos...
Commented on 2008-03-10 03:10:23
This game is pretty much awesome looking... Style is something that hasn't really been seen, and the vibrance of everything is more then refreshing =) And to all those haters saying these are bullshots, yes, they are, but their better then most =) mostly the AA is higher, but thats about it, the rest is tottally doable, and even the AA shouldn't be TOO bad.
Commented on 2008-03-10 04:21:19
looks nice, just hope it doesn't look as empty as these concept shots :)
Commented on 2008-03-10 06:36:04
Could be cool, but I'm not going to hold my breath after the exercise in tedium that was Assassin's Creed. Semi-automatic parkour doesn't make a game.
Commented on 2008-03-10 06:50:25
AC did a bunch of stuff right, but yeah, ultimatelly its a flawed game to the point where it suffers.
but this could turn out AA

I thought the main character wasn't supposed to be able to use guns?
Commented on 2008-03-10 07:53:51
I imagine the color scheme is used to indicate points where the character can perform special kinds of moves, on colored places you can do stuff like wallrunning or run across a crane to another rooftop, on non-colored areas you can't. The positioning of the colors reinforces this.

Not if she doesn't have to. They won't lend you submachine guns, assault rifles, RPG...etc. this isnt your typical FPS. Guns will be there, but the developers want to encourage you not to use any.

I think this game looks cool, but it all depends how it all looks in motion during gameplay.

PS. I like how Faith looks like.
Commented on 2008-03-10 09:23:18
This is quite a game I can't wait for news ^^ bring more, please. Looks very cool, need to see in motion. And yeah, she looks cool. So, will she be the only playable character? Ore will there be more?

  • Tiz
    Tiz Gears 4 is a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, which is great if you loved Gears 3. @alimokrane: I'm partial to the Embar & Overkill. (27 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Phaethon360: I agree on the enemy variety, definataly but I simply love the little tricks and bits they added here and there. Best weapon has to be the DropShot. Ball of fun! (29 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (50 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz PhaeKO outta nowhere. Rod said he wanted to do it right before doing it different and 343 were the blueprint for this which is why a lot of the Gears community still remains intact. (52 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 That and the variety just isn't there. So many different enemy and weapon types in Gears 2, which was the high point of the series for me. Gears 3 wasn't bad but it was on the downswing for me. (57 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I really dislike Gears 4. Horde 3.0 was a disappointment, and the mechanics haven't changed much since Gears 1. After playing the remake so soon it just felt like more of the same. (58 minutes ago)
