The Week in Games: A Hop, Skip and an Origin Story

Illustration for article titled The Week in Games: A Hop, Skip and an Origin Story

It’s a good week to love indie and strategy games. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst drops this week for those of us who tried real-life Parkour and failed (cough me cough). The reboot focuses on Faith’s origin story.

Next week is a bit sparse thanks to the E3 lull, and our fingers are crossed for a few surprise releases there. In the meantime, Sherlock Holmes has another mystery out that can keep your mind busy while you wait.
