Weekend Getaway: Mirror’s Edge

Featuring games you can finish in one weekend!

If you’re anything like me, then in your heart of hearts you hold two absolute truths: parkour is the coolest thing ever, and parkour is the scariest thing ever. As much as I love the thought of scaling walls and vaulting rooftops, I have almost no doubt that I would die. Quickly. Luckily, Mirror’s Edge from EA lets players experience being a parkour badass without falling 20 stories to their deaths.

A Great Big List of Games from E3 with Playable Female Characters

All aboard the hype train!

Like many of you, me and my fellow Weekend Editor Sam Maggs and I were more than a little irked by the whole Ubisoft kerfuffle earlier this week. It almost made us forget about that long ago time (last Monday) when we were really excited about the stuff coming out of E3. Then we realized...we're still excited! And though female representation still has a long way to go in the gaming industry, we're happy to report there are plenty of other upcoming games that include playable female characters.

Why Is Icarus So Hot Right Now?

For some reason, Icarus is heating up right now in the video game world, and the sun doesn't seem to have anything to do with it, except if you consider that it supports human life and humans make video games. But that's a minor point. What's important here is that Icarus has apparently become the go-to metaphor for trying to achieve perfection but finding your downfall. Or, sometimes, it's not even a metaphor at all. And sometimes it's just a cool word to throw into your game title. But whatever the reason, one thing is certain: Icarus is so hot right now. (Other certain thing: I love that joke way too much.) Let me elaborate:

Three-Year-Old Is Better at Dominating Mirror’s Edge than at Wielding a Glass of Juice

I hope that when I have a child, he or she is better at jumping across skyscrapers than wielding juice at age three. Now, I love me some Mirror's Edge. It's one of my favorite games of all time and I've played it through several times. Now I'm not saying that I'm some master gamer, but I do have some skills at that particular title. But this kid just cruises through these levels like he's been practicing for years. Possible even three years, which is technically the greatest number possible for this little guy.

He also plays Portal, and the video description says he's even better than the video shows. He does have a tendency to walk around in circles though. Between adorably awkward juice breaks

Mixed Media: 10 Western Video Games that Would Make Great Anime Films

This anime still comes from what I would call an unlikely source. Or at least a source with unlikely inspiration. The image comes from Dante's Inferno: The Animated Epic, a series of anime shorts inspired not by Dante's original Divine Comedy, but by the video game Dante's Inferno.

Also mysteriously in existence is Halo Legends, an anime series based on the Halo franchise. Because when someone says "film adaptation of the Halo franchise," the first thought I have is "anime."

And now this morning brings the announcement of yet another anime adaptation of a western video game: Dragon Age. Like all these other game animes, it'll be direct-to-video, with a 2011 release date.

While I find this trend to be downright odd, there's undoubtedly some potential. Halo, at least, has a sufficient fan base that there could be an audience for the anime, and it's not a stretch to guess that there would be overlap in the anime and Halo markets. But Dante's Inferno and Dragon Age are each a bit of a stretch to justify. But who knows, they might be great.

Which brings us to the bulk of our exercise. Here are 10 Western games that I know would make for sweet anime adaptations, ranked from how much I would salivate over it, in ascending order:
