Journal: E3 is Nigh

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Sadly, I haven’t played many games this week.  I’m still working my way through Assassin’s Creed 2, and I still feel the same way I felt last week about it.  The free-running mechanic is pretty fun, but ultimately still a little broken.  My most frustrating moments come with the assassin’s tombs.  Though gorgeous and well-crafted, the camera angles kept the free-running from being enjoyable.  Also, because the mechanic isn’t perfect, rushing me to complete them only made the issues stand out that much more for me.  I only have one more of them to finish though before I hit the rest of the end game.

If you’re still itching for some more roof-top time trial action or just a chance to run aimlessly for no apparent reason, look no further.

DICE has announced that there will be downloadable content (DLC) for Mirror’s Edge in January (PS3 will be receiving an exclusive map). From the trailer (seen after the break) we can guess that this won’t be as much a metropolis as it will be abstract planes crashing together to form some abstract M.C.-Esher-style gameplay. Are you ready to leave the city behind and brave the floating pillars in the sky?
