I don’t tend to replay video games very often. The demands of this job mean I’m normally straight onto the next one as soon as the credits roll on the last. But every year I try to find the time to revisit one of my all-time favourites: EA’s Mirror’s Edge.
We’ve been running and jumping as Mario for decades, but always from a third-person perspective. A recently-released mod tweaks Super Mario 64 to let you see the world from Mario’s eyes and in the process completely transforms the experience.
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.
