At first glance, Hot Lava seems little more than YouTube reaction fodder, a tricky platformer with plenty of things to make entertainers mug and scream for their audience. But playing reveals a movement-based game as fun as Mirror’s Edge or Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. It’s silly. but the thrill of completing a level…
Dying Light 2 takes parkour zombie slaying to a new city, and there’s a reason for that. Where the first game, released in 2015, was about dealing with a viral outbreak in real time, the second will deal with the aftermath years later.
Mirror’s Edge is a 2008 game all about hardcore parkour and fluid movement. A new collaborative speedrun shows off exactly what happens when you toss expert players behind the wheel.
These are people running around on real ground, not characters in a video game. Crazy what a certain, familiar perspective does to your feelings on some footage.
I wasn't sure what to expect from Dying Light, a new open-world zombie game from a studio known for making the regrettable open-world zombie series Dead Island. Imagine my pleasant surprise, then, when I discovered some cool ideas during my first five hours with the game. Maybe you can teach an old zombie new tricks.
We all wanna parkour like Super Mario or Ryu Hayabusa, but only a few people ever get to actually do it — like freerunner Jason Paul.
I've seen parkour videos where the perspective makes it look like a video game. I haven't seen many where I actually hold my breath and think, boy, even in a video game that might have been fatal.
In this promotional video for Assassin's Creed Unity, four Assassin's Creed cosplayers hunt two soldiers through the streets of Paris:
Techland just released an intense new trailer for Dying Light. The video shows off the open-world zombie game's supremely bloody gameplay, along with some nimble parkour moves:
Ubisoft enlisted Devin Graham to make this Watch Dogs mini-movie featuring expert freerunners:
I am so sorry. I tried to come up with something different, but I kept coming back to "Peter Parkour". Hopefully this superhero-themed video from Ronnie Street Stunts can redeem the headline.
With a touch of Minecraft to boot—but only if you squint.
Usually, when we show you parkour, it's footage of successful, awe-inspiring runs. The point is to highlight finesse in movement. But actually getting to that skill level takes a lot of practice—and failed runs.
Characters like Ezio in Assassin's Creed make parkour seem so easy—you're literally just a couple of button presses away from doing some cool move or trick. It's not so easy in real life, of course.
Boy, these guys did a damn fine job nailing the game's trademark style, from the outfit to the obstacles to the field of view on the camera they used.
Which shouldn't be surprising, seeing as they've starred in a metric ton of platformers but hey, video proof!
Between lightsabers and usage of the Force, Jedi are already pretty cool. Even so, watching the folks at ronniestreetstunts free-run as Jedi over the desert is effin' awesome.
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.
