Mirror’s Edge Catalyst: a labour of love for DICE

Despite the original Mirror’s Edge game being praised for its clean minimalist aesthetic in 2008, one of the common bugbears that many had with the game was its frustrating parkour movement in a world that suffered from frustrating level design. Despite these factors playing a huge part in curbing the game’s sales potential, DICE were still able to convince Electronic Arts to give the studio one more chance at rectifying the game’s core problems whilst also building upon its many strengths. And with a reboot allowing the team at DICE to wipe the slate clean, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is a game that DICE hope finally lives up to the...

Interview with Cristian Diaconescu of Black The Fall

As part of its Collective indie crowd-voting platform, Square Enix has a Steam Early Access game in development that has really caught my eye for its dark atmospheric graphics in a manner which rekindle memories of games like Limbo and Flashback. Billed as an atmospheric side-scrolling shooter with puzzle solving elements, Black The Fall is an “odd and unexpected black and white dream inspired by a childhood passed behind the Iron Curtain”.

Black The Fall is an indie game that’s coming out for...

A landmark album without equal upon its release in...

Interview with Andy Wilson of Mafia 3

With previous titles in the franchise getting a luke-warm reception amongst certain critics, the pressure is certainly on for Mafia 3 to perform well this year. But with a new studio in charge of the franchise title’s development (Hangar 13), together with Haden Blackman (Star Wars: The Force Unleashed) at the helm, it looks like Mafia 3 might just be one of this year’s biggest surprise hits. However, with games like Grand Theft Auto 5 already setting such a high standard for the open-world genre, the competition couldn’t be any fiercer. And with this in mind, I spoke to Andy Wilson (Executive Producer, Hangar 13) and got to ask...

H20 @ Camden Underworld, 10 January 2016

New York hardcore band H20 played in London on 10 January and it was a great show. Really energetic with a pretty good vibe. And even though I am now in desperate need of new camera equipment, I think the following shots should give you an indication of what you missed out on. Check them out below:
