News Snatch: Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, Pokémon Co-Master, And Adr1ft

I’m a bit broken this morning (urgh, Mondays) so just pretend there is something friendly and charming here. Done that? Good. On to the news from the back of the fridge etc. starting with a dev diary for Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst.

Adr1ft is almost here and Digital Spy has had a preview in which Adam Orth explained, finally, how the game represents when he “f**ked up on the internet.”

“The game is actually about that,” he said. “The destroyed space station and everything is like a metaphor for what happened in my life and how I was feeling at the time. I was totally adrift and really thought I had ruined my career.”

Digital Spy praise the game to the heavens but do note it is “four hours long.”

  1. Daisy Ridley would be great at Lara I think, although I did think Angelina Jolie was good too.

  2. That real life Hitman setup was pretty cool, now that i can see past the bonkers inclusion of the Chuckle brothers.

  3. Er… Tuffcub, you already reported Chuckle Brothers being Hitman.

    I’ve actually met them once. Twas at a theatre in my youth and they don’t seemed to have aged to this very day! :O

    In terms of looks, i could see Daisy Ridley matching the new reboot version of Lara. The original? That was Angelia Jolie material. However, Daisy is too fat to be Lara. Wait, what am i saying? She is too fat? Sorry. I suddenly became a massive dick for no reason because she is not 100% skeleton.

    Seriously, why are people classed as fat if they happen to have a bit of meat on them? Stupid social media.

    Adrift being 4 hours long? I’ve read a preview on Eurogamer and yeah, the length suits the game. Any longer and it outstays it’s welcome. Mirrors Edge, surprised it’s not turned into Mirrorfield of Battleedge. EA, are you feeling ok?

    • ” Tuffcub, you already reported Chuckle Brothers being Hitman.”

      Yes, I know, which is why it says

      “Friday saw The Chuckle Brothers take on real life Hitman”

      before going on to mention the new video, which doesnt have Chuckle Brothers.
