WRUP: Viva variety edition

This week two of our esteemed writers are having a go at Mirror's Edge, and both of them are having mixed feelings. Gasp! There's no time to dawdle though. With seemingly all of the major 2008 releases hitting the shelves within the next month, we're all going to be very, very busy. But, the video game industry waits for no one, so we'd better just get to it. As always, don't forget to share what you're playing in the comments.

Dustin Burg (SuperDunners): I have two big gaming goals this weekend. One being my attempt to reach wave 50 in Gears of War 2's Horde mode on normal difficulty. My second goal is to finish Mirror's Edge and generate a solid opinion on the game. So far, I have mixed feelings. That's about it, Gears 2 and Mirror's Edge.

Xav de Matos (Snypz): I've spent a good amount of time with Faith in Mirror's Edge. Where do I stand? Well, I don't know. There are some great ideas in the game but I'm seeing missed opportunities everywhere. I'm also spending a good amount of time playing another big, and upcoming, title ... but we can't talk about that right now. Sorry!

Richard Mitchell (SenseiRAM): I finally wrapped up Silent Hill: Homecoming. I have to admit it was a very good entry in the series. Congrats, Double Helix. Now I'm freed up to really dig into Dead Space, which I'm enjoying, though I have to say that it's only managed to scare me maybe once. Definitely not the psychological brain twisting you get with Silent Hill (thus far anyway). I've been digging the Left 4 Dead demo as well. My only problem with it is that it's way too short. Thankfully that problem goes away when the full retaili version hits next week.
