I hate prequels, they are pointless

Alright for spin off games for handhelds but not main games, it just comes off as lazy, like you can't think of a way to take the story forward and you can't stick to what you created in the first place.

Mirrors Edge is amazing, I don't see why the can't just move it forward

Stop crying

Donnieboi - How is that "crying", it's a commenting website I'm commenting.

This is why people don't like to express themselves on these kind of sites because people like you always have to be dicks when replying to someone because you don't like their opinion.

Don't like it, don;t reply....honestly. Are you really telling me EA couldn't just continue from the first one they created.

Jeez ¬¬

So you'd rather they never made MGS3 then? What are you on mate.
Mr_Nuts  +   851d ago
As I've said before lots of times on here, MGS3 is different because we needed to learn who Big Boss was to understand MGS4. It was needed and it wasn't a reboot either.

Mirrors Edge is different because they already had a great game, backstory, character development...why not go from where the last game took off.

Now as for MGSV as another prequel...it's pushing it.

What was wrong with the 1st?
Veni Vidi Vici  +   851d ago
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! So underrated. Just needed tweaking on combat and perhaps multiple ways of getting through a level.
Inception  +   851d ago
There's a couple of flaw with the 1st, but it still can improve with a sequel. So i don't understand why the hell they need to reboot this?!

This is a prequel, yet she looks alot older than in ME1
tdogchristy90  +   851d ago
While this does seem concerning it could be just this... That the first was so long ago released that they are starting fresh so as to flesh out a full story arch (trilogy?) over the entirety of this console cycle?
SemRex  +   851d ago
I can appreciate that. I never actually played the first one, only the demo. So rebooting the story is fine by me.

Starting to dislike prequels! They feel limited IMO and I just want progress in my gameplay and stories. Not all prequels are bad with the 2 gow on PSP being great for me.

Mirror's Edge had some of the best ambiance I've seen in a game. I'm looking forward to more of that.

That's a shame, I hate prequels. Thankfully my love for Mirror's edge is more than enough to overcome it.
Summons75  +   851d ago
I'll still buy it as long as it stays focused on free running than anything else. People complained the shooting was awful in the first game but that wasn't the focus of the game.
starchild  +   851d ago
I'm so happy Mirror's Edge is returning. I was just playing the first one last night and it is a truly unique and amazing game.
MikeyDucati1  +   851d ago
To me, it makes perfect sense. The way the first one ended left little to work with. I was wondering how they would do it before I heard about a prequel game. This gives em chance to better what worked, erase what didn't and hopefully come up with a better story. Plus I liked Merc. So maybe he is back? And maybe her sister is a runner too before coming a cop. And the world can be like ours before it became the world we played in the first one. I'm excited that the project is happening.
