Mirror’s Edge is a game I really want to like, but realize its shortcomings. Unlike the Bastion video I think this one largely speaks for itself – Mirror’s Edge is a great experiment I’d love to see DICE return to once the Battlefield circlerjerky stuff is over and done with. The platforming stuff is great fun, and lends itself to some really awesome time trials. I’d also love to see if they could flesh out the game’s universe and make it live up to its potential as a true dystopia and not just a setting for silly chase sequences. We’ll see whether they can get back to it after Battlefield 3, though.
In other news, YouTube has decided to block my account from uploading videos longer than 15 minutes again (even though none of my existing videos have been flagged or removed) and as a result I won’t be posting anything but frivolities to that account for a while (assuming this gets cleared up at all). They really, really suck at providing means of contesting or protesting account flagging, and as this is the first time I’ve ever run into this problem I’m sort of at a loss (especially since they insist no specific videos are the cause of the IP infringement flagging). Ah, well.
