1. I love the design of Mirror’s Edge; seeing it just makes me want to walk through the cityscape and marvel at everything. No, rather, I wish it were tangible enough to touch the textures.

  2. So apparently there are Mirror’s Edge bonus levels I’ve never played. This is good news.

  3. The freeform, abstract DLC levels, which are what I bought the game on Steam for years after playing it when it came out, aren’t available (as far as I’ve been able to tell) for the PC for some idiotic reason. So if those are the ones you’re thinking of, I am sorry to report the bad news.

  4. Eve is a game about CCP’s native Iceland, the Vikings, and “the unforgiving harshness. The darkness. The way that nature just simply kills you if you choose to ignore it,” says Ólafsson flatly.

    I can’t believe I never made this connection myself. It makes so much sense.

    The Mirror’s Edge feature was my favorite. I’m just now playing Mirror’s Edge for the first time, and it’s true that the graphics have held up impressively over time.

  5. Apparently this new series is sponsored by Cook & Becker, who are video game art dealers, which is something I didn’t know even existed until minutes ago. Absolutely makes sense though, as there has always been some totally beautiful art created in the process of game development that is worthy of recognition.

  6. The freeform, abstract DLC levels, which are what I bought the game on Steam for years after playing it when it came out, aren’t available (as far as I’ve been able to tell) for the PC for some idiotic reason.

    Unclear whether this will please you or horrify you, Stav, but the DLC seems to be available, just not on Steam?

  7. Ah, you’re right, that was it, I think. Just not Steam!

  8. (Also I just fixed the styling so your italized quote shows up properly as italics (but it might take a bit for the change to percolate through the caching/cdn)).

  9. Argh on the not-on-Steam bit. However, I’ll admit right now that my no-Origin policy is gonna be waived for Mirror’s Edge 2.

  10. I ended up installing Origin for Titanfall, reluctantly. It’s ignorable, pretty much, which is about the best thing that can be said about it.

  11. I am trying not to play Eve for a while, no fair linking to the art…
