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. They’re open to customisation that offers generous depth, and each move of a slider in the creation menu will have an effect on the battlefield â€“ create a stocky character and, as you’d expect, they’ll be slow to move but more able to take hits, while a wiry frame ensures speed at the cost of endurance.”
Brink received several accolades at GamesCom. They include:
- IGN: Best PC Game nomination; Best Developer (Splash Damage)
- GamesRadar: The five most hotly talked about games at GamesCom
- PC Games Hardware: The Best 15 Games at the GamesCom
- Eurogamer.de: Best of the Nation nominee
- PCGames.de: Best Games of GamesCom (#5)
Wrapping up GamesCom news, be sure to check out fan site BrinkGamers.com for a lengthy interview with Richard Ham and Ed Stern, as well as more pics of our Container City setup from the show — provided by our friends at Splash Damage.
As more comes out on Brink (PAX is just around the corner), we’ll keep you updated.
