This is embarrassing to admit, but when I play Mirrors Edge I get really nauseous. This is a problem, since the original game is on my top 10 list of all time favourites and I actually kind of dreaded loading it up – the feeling I imagine people who are lactose intolerant have when they want a delicious pizza. But I bought some sea sickness tablets and pushed through the pain, hopping from skyscraper to skyscraper, punching guns out of the hands of nameless corporate drones. Aside from one particular level (CONSTRUCTION SITE AHHHH) I loved the risk that DICE took by creating a title that focused so little time on combat and much more on the graceful and fluid movement of a pretty fantastic female lead.
So when I saw Catalyst teased and finally announced to the world, I was ecstatic. The problem is that I forgot to bring any sea sickness medicine to EA’s booth.
