Before you head out for the weekend, here’s a round up of coverage for Brink (we’ll have one up for WET shortly).

Fresh out of GamesCom, IGN’s Martin Robinson has impressions after watching a presentation on the game — here’s an excerpt from his preview:

“Different, too, is the look of Brink’s protagonists, and although their roots are in the muscled iconography of what’s an achingly machismo genre, they’ve been painted with a Pixar-like brush resulting in an abundance of character.
