We hope you all had a great weekend. Here’s a catch up on some of the new coverage out for Brink.
We begin with Team Xbox, who announced their Best of E3 2009 Awards — naming Brink the Most Innovative title at the show. Below is a snippet from the feature:
“The innovation that really hit us where we live was the mission design of Brink, the shooter from Splash Damage that ever so subtly is blurring the lines between multiplayer and single player gameplay.”
Below are some more accolades the game received following E3…
- Best New IP — 411 Mania
- Most Likely to Succeed — Examiner
- Post E3 Games to Watch — MSN UK Tech
- Best Games of E3 (Selection) — Inc Gamers
- E3 Hidden Gems — Guardian
- Best Shooter (Runner Up) — Gamespot
- Shooter of the Show (Runner Up), Multiplatform Game of Show (Runner Up), Best New IP (Runner Up) and Best Multiplayer Game (Runner Up) — GameSpy
There’s a few developer interviews from the show worth checking too. Inc Gamers has a new video interview with Richard Ham and Ed Stern — watch it here. Seems like Richard was pretty busy with interviews — you can hear more from him at Joystiq, Machinima (via YouTube), and Blast Magazine.
In preview coverage, Xbox 360 Achievements has their E3 preview up. Here’s an excerpt:
“However, with the beautiful world you’re thrown into, who’d want to drive when you can walk everywhere and soak in the almost cel-shaded scenery â€“ it’s a truly great art style. Everything visually about the game screams class; from the sparse virtual texturing, the detailed characters with high polygon count, to the large and vivid environments. Simply put, BRINK is a bloody beautiful sight to feast your eyes upon.”
