I Can't Believe It's Not Mirror's Edge (And Is Instead Minecraft)

I've seen a metric brick-stick-fuck-ton of game location recreations in Minecraft, but I don't think one's ever come this close to looking exactly like the original. Look at that. It's the city from Mirror's Edge. That's it. What else is there to say? » 8/12/14 10:00pm 8/12/14 10:00pm

A month or so back, I got to spend an hour with the Oculus Rift VR headset—most of which I spent swooning over Portal 2. Ever since that time I've been dying to get the Rift wrapped around my head for a larger chunk of time.

This Is Mirror's Edge In Real Life. It Is Terrifying

I can’t tell if these guys are imitating Mirror’s Edge, or if this video is just a testament to how well the game captured what parkour feels like. Either way, this first person Parkour video is so much like Mirror’s Edge that it’s actually a little bit terrifying. » 7/01/13 12:30am 7/01/13 12:30am

I love Mirror's Edge so much I'm not going to get into it here, but the game had its faults. All those indoor bits, mostly. I wanted to run free! » 6/13/13 2:00am 6/13/13 2:00am
