From the mailbox: Mirror’s Edge (PC) and Skate 2

Mirror’s Edge came out for the consoles back in November, but the PC version came out this week, including a CD of the breezy, trippy music featured in the game, plus some remixes. I haven’t heard the CD yet, but I imagine some of the music will make me think of trips to Sephora with the wife.

The game earned points with critics and players because of the premise — a first-person game about free-running. People loved it, hated it, got sick because of it, and examined it. I’ve got a review of my own coming pretty soon.

As for Skate 2, it’s something I’ve got on my playlist, though I’m probably going to set suckage records when I try to pull off my first few tricks.

To catch some of you up, I’ve posted trailers for both games below. Eat ‘em up.

Here’s Mirror’s Edge:
