Mirrors Edge – Looking Back

by Chris ‘spiros za’ Hartley

This was one of those games I was not too sure about when it came out. I picked up a couple of times and put it back down not being sure if I would like it or not. Nowadays spending R550,00 on a game and not liking it will make a dent in the pocket somewhere. I had a couple of old games to trade so I made the trip to Canal Walk. There’s a little shop there that does rentals, trades and sales. Pretty cool little shop and you can pick up some real gems there, just keep going back once every 2 weeks and see what they have on the shelves. I traded Sonic the Hedgehog for Mirrors Edge and paid an additional R79,00 bucks, bargain! (Better than spending the R550,00!)

E3: Assassins Creed 2 Preview

The year is 1486 and the Renaissance is booming in downtown Venice. A slightly scruffy assassin stalks the crowds dressed from head to toe in a white robe. That unknown figure goes by the name of Ezio, and with the help of his good friend, Leonardo Da Vinci, is on a mission to avenge the death of his family. Of course we’re talking Assassin’s Creed 2, I mean where else would a plot like this seem normal? Either way, Ubisoft Montreal’s showing of Assassin’s Creed 2 at E3 this year opened up a can of worms as Lead Game Designer, Patrick Plourde, demonstrated to us that Assassin’s Creed was just the beginning of something much bigger.
