This Week In Games: Mirror's Edge Catalyst Is Out This Week

Mirror's Edge Catalyst is out this week! Yeah, I know. You forgot right?

Which is so weird because everyone was begging for this sequel. Still, I am excited to play this game. I am expecting flashes of brilliance from this.


Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator (Xbox One, PS4)

What is it? It's the latest entry into that niche 2D fighting game. Should you care? It's reviewing really well. It looks great and plays really well, apparently/


Hearts of Iron IV (PC)

What is it? A strategy game based in and around the events of World War II Should you care? Apparently this is a very complex video game for people who like very complex video games. That may be you!


Kirby: Planet Robobot (3DS)

What is it? A brand new Kirby game for the 3DS, hampered by a terrible name. Should you care? I haven't played this yet, but I expect I will give it a try. Early reviews seem relatively positive and it's been a while since I've had something to play on my 3DS.


Mirror's Edge: Catalyst (Xbox One, PS4)

What is it? The long awaited sequel to the cult hit Mirror's Edge, a first person, free-running game that was insanely striking and did some really interesting things with momentum. Should you care? Absolutely you should care. Very keen for this.


Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter (Xbox One, PS4)

What is it? The latest in the Sherlock Holmes adventure series. Should you care? I know very little about this series, but they keep making them so I can only assume people keep buying them. My logic: they can't be that bad, I guess?


SteamWorld Heist (PS4, PS Vita, PC)

What is it? A very cool turn-based strategy game that everyone seems to love very much. Should you care? It comes out on consoles today, I will be giving this a try I think.


Picking anything up? Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments!

    Robobot is a great name

    You could have played Steamworld Heist on the 3DS :D

    I do need to play Edge 1 some time.

      Steamworld heist was so good. I wanted to hold out for the wii u version, but I caved.

      No regerts.

        I loved Steamworld Dig (played it mostly on Vita). Will probably pick this one up at some point, although my currently full gaming plate means I'll probably wait for a sale.

    Also out this week:
    Stranger of Sword City (PC)
    Broken Bots (PS4)
    Soul Axiom (PS4)
    Fire Emblem: Revelation (3DS)
    Atelier Sophie (Ps4/Vita)
    Odin Sphere: Lefthraisir demo (Ps4)

      Lefthrasir itself is out this week in the US. Mine shipped today.

    Sherlock Holmes ... My logic: they can’t be that bad, I guess?

    They're pretty bad. The entire gameplay is walk to waypoint, look at thing, walk to next waypoint. No thought at all required or invited on the player's part.

    So Mirror's Edge is out... tomorrow? Still no reviews anywhere that I can find? That always makes me worry a bit...

      Don't worry too much. If the full game is as solid as the alpha was then it's going to be fantastic.

      The lack of both reviews and marketing make me think its probably a dud and even the publisher has little faith in it.

      That said, I hated the first game so I'm not its audience either way.

        I played the first 2 hours on EA access (You get 6hrs free).
        If you liked the first you will enjoy it. It's actually quite good and the map is freaking huge.
        Textures are poor and pop in spoils it a bit.

      I am so close to buying it but keep waiting for a review somewhere. I am guessing review will be out when it's today in the US?

    Oh hey yet another Kirby game to add to the queue.

    Mirror's Edge need to be a VR release as well.

      Jesus Christ, the first game nearly made me barf, what're you trying to do to us?

        I've been playing a little indie game called Windlands on the Rift (CV1) which is a grappling hook/spiderman type game ..... and a HEAP of fun. Haven't felt sick at all, but I've heard some people do get hit badly. I think it's all a matter of getting your "VR legs".

    Wait, Mirror's Edge and a new Frogware Holmes game? \o/

    Oh.. Mirror's Edge not for PC this time? I was looking forward to it.. any news on whether it would come out for PC? I honestly didn't like the first one all that much, however, I enjoyed the mechanics of the game.

      Yeah it is. https://www.origin.com/en-au/store/buy/mirrors-edge-catalyst/pc-download/base-game/standard-edition

      I'm waiting a few weeks though. Just remembered that although I loved it, I never actually finished the first one.

        Because it ran like a slug on PC

          No, because I got distracted by something else. Runs really well on my PC.

    so where's the cheapest place for Mirror's Edge?

    Serrels, can you do a review of one of these Sherlock games cause I don't know anyone who plays them and if they keep making them they've got to be good, right?
