Mirror’s Edge Movies

Looking at Kotaku today I found two new gameplay videos for Mirror’s Edge. The videos were sent to Kotaku after meeting with one of the developers the day before. I feel that if you want to see the videos that you should go over to their website to see it since they took the time to get the videos for us.

If you don’t know what Mirror’s Edge is you are kind of in the same boat as I am. Looking at the movies I see a very cool running first person experience spanning multiple pathways over buildings and through alleyways. You get guns in the game but they don’t seem to be a main focus. The focus is on the intense action as you are vaulting over building and dodging helicopters. Check out the videos. Oh yeah, the game is made by Dice the people who make Battlefield and a earlier talk with them revealed that they are considering putting action like this into future Battlefield games.

Go here to see the videos.    Kotaku-Mirror’s Edge Videos

More Brawl Videos

Okay, I’ve had some kind of obsession with finding Smash Bros. Brawl videos in the last two weeks so I want to share what I’ve found that was remotely amusing.

The first video is animated and was done by a group of flash artists that I found on youtube. The video is called NiN10Doh! <– please tell me that you can read what that says…its not that hard to figure out. Its a funny video. I can tell these guys are big Nintendo fans by the fact that they included several games from tons of systems including Earthbound from SNES and characters from Captain N the game Master. Anyways, my favorite parts include Captain Falcon singing and the Earthbound scene. Oh yeah, this whole game sums up in 4 seperate segments the entire plot of Animal Crossing and why I hate it.

This second video is live action and was made before Brawl came out. It is extremely ridiculous and has very high pitched quotes like “I heard you could play as Peter Pan” and “I got a chili cheese dog, that says I’m awesome and fast”. Its good for a laugh but does not compare to the work put into ThereWillBeBrawl. The tetris pieces’ laugh is so annoying its hilarious and the many references to what tails looks like is awesome.

Red Alert 3 Trailer Talent Remix

Okay, here is a video i found a week or two back that I really like for the upcoming game Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 for the PC on October 28th, the 360 on November 12th and sometime early next year for PS3. Sorry PS3 buddy. I have been a fan since the first Red Alert game came out over a decade ago now and I love the series. The game now features battle bears and armored dolphins as you will hear in the video (which is awesome, the video and military animals I mean).

The video is a kind of dance/trailer/remix/awesome look at the cast of the game along with some in game videos and some cutscenes also. There are TONS of famous people in this game. One of the cool new features also in this game is the new co-op campaign option (FINALLY!). Enjoy the video and definitely check this game out on your respective system when its available.

Halo Wars – The Back Story

According to the video just released the back story to Halo Wars sets the game twenty years before the original halo game with a human military fleet heading toward the planet Harvest to reclaim it. There are still a lot of Covenant there and they are excavating a ‘relic’ out of the ice. The person in charge orders a backup crew to help the already stationed troops on Harvest to take over the area where the Covenant are excavating.

The game looks really nice. These cutscenes are very well done. Couple this CG trailer with the nice lookin’ gameplay and I think we might actually have a decent Halo RTS. We’ll see how it stacks up when I see/play Starcraft 2 in a week.

Here is the video for it. Its called ‘Field Trip to Harvest’

Pre Order Now: Dead Space

*** Every Wednesday, Pre-Order Now takes a look at the top game that deserves your $5.00! Whether they be epic or super weird we tell you why you need it. ***

The game Dead Space for the PC, 360 and PS3 is one of those games that flew under my radar for quite a while recently while I have been too excited waiting for Fable 2 and Gears 2. That has now changed. This is one of the most impressive looking games I have seen in a long time and I can’t believe I didn’t pay more attention to it sooner. When the title says pre order now…it means it because this game comes out for the 360 and PS3 and ships on October 14th while the PC will see it on the 20th.

Why is the game worth pre ordering for the 360 and PS3? Just announced by EA that for the first two weeks the game is out you will be able to download, for free, a console specific suit for the system that you purchased the game on. The PS3 will feature a blue and black suit while the 360 will feature a kind of off white and yellow suit (don’t worry, a picture is below). The black one is called the obsidian suit while the white is called the elite suit. These suits will be made available to users via the Xbox Marketplace and the Playstation Network. What makes the suits worth getting? Besides a new look the suits will offer increased toughness and an expanded inventory in the game. Not bad for free.

The game itself is a survival horror shooter that takes place in deep space where you play as an engineer working on a space vessel where something ‘unexpected’ happens and you wake up swarmed by very creepy creatures. To me and my co-workers the game looks like either Doom or Bioshock but having talked to a few who have played this game it plays more like Gears of War favoring a duck-and-cover system to help you out.

I highly recommend the game and if you want these awesome suits you should spend a few bucks here in the next couple days to pre order the game to make sure you get it in time before they’ve been taken off for download. Remember, you only have two weeks to get them. Working in game retail myself you can see a game disappear day one from people coming off the street (not bums but they would like the game too) and picking up all the spare copies of this game then sometimes not seeing the game be restocked for up to a week. Having the game pre ordered as always secures you a copy of it and makes you not worry about acquiring the game when released.

A video for your viewing pleasure featuring gameplay using what looks like one of the more powerful weapons in the game.

The original Mega Man in shirt form

Megaman 9 should be out for the Xbox Live Arcade now (being October 1st) and is already out on the Wii for download and on the PS3 network. Who cares how much it is, it will be good. The other writers for this site have played it on the Wii and love it. You will too. Cool, end of discussion.

Dragonball the Movie….The Game….

Goku with a dragon ball

So…if you haven’t heard that there is a live action version of Dragonball being made by Fox then…I’m sorry I’ve ruined your day now. I myself am a fan of the old show but after seeing screenshots of the movie I’m kinda scared. Scared because I’m still going to go see it cause I’m a fan..but that it’s going to be bad.

Anyways, Fox is pondering the idea of making a videogame out of this new movie. I have some words of advice for them if they decide to pursue this idea. STOP IT! Somebody slap their hand please.

Here is the official site for the movie for anyone interested. Chi Chi, Goku’s wife doesn’t look bad. All the male actors are terrible looking compared to their anime counterparts.

*update- A bootleg trailer has been released for the movie. I’m going to wait for an official Trailer to hit but check out the bootleg at Kotaku
