Mirror's Edge

I bought this game and played it quite a lot recently.
Although the game is completely different from ONI (it's a 1st person platform game), I find the aesthetics very similar with a clean, somewhat empty future city, bright lights and mirrors everywhere.
Faith, the main character shows similarities with Konoko too. Eurasian, short athletic brunette looks and quite a mean attitude.
Have you tried the game and do you feel the same

Yes.
After seeing the rooftops of some buildings (with generators and pipes and doors with stairways), I did see Oni (level 5 when outside the airport).
Nice to see Oni's art style being recognized well.

Re: Mirror's Edge

Yeah, there are definately a few Oni "touches" around. Overall, a fun game.

Re: Mirror's Edge

I'm playing this right now and, yeah, there are similarities. Like the shared awesomeness of both games, but also the low degree of sexualisation of the female protagonist, which is of course rather rare in video games. And (spoiler) Kate is so to speak Faith's Shinatama whom she goes to epic lengths to rescue. (and I don't know if she succeeds yet.)

Well, no, I didn't mean that she's the one who gives Faith infos while she's in the field (though Faith has a someone for that too) but apart from that it's similar.

Re: Mirror's Edge

Oh, I see.  Well, still interesting.  I didn't give much importance, personally, to the whole "Faith is Asian and so is Konoko" angle, but I think we were all reminded of Rooftops when we first saw Mirror's Edge screenshots.

Re: Mirror's Edge

Eurasian (not just asian), brunette, short, athletic, not sexualized much as stated before, angled haircut, I definitely see some kind of trend here.

Re: Mirror's Edge

Mirror's Edge movement + Oni combat = best game ever.


If we don't change the direction we're going, we'll likely end up where we're headed.
