The internet asked me to pass along this information on our games. I’m happy to comply.
GamePro has a new interview with Brink’s Game Director Paul Wedgwood. It’s a good read with information about Splash Damage and their work on Brink. Here’s a snippet:
GamePro: How has the group’s history helped in the creation and building of a new IP?
Paul Wedgwood: The idea of setting a game inside a floating arcology was actually one of the first things I wanted to do even before we founded Splash Damage, but the technology to really pull that off wasn’t available at the time. When we were close to finishing up Enemy Territory: Quake Wars in 2007 and starting to think about our next game, that idea immediately popped back into my head, and I worked with Ed Stern, now our Lead Writer, to come up with a compelling narrative for it.

Moving to the always popular world of game lists, Platform Nation has included the Fallout 3’s Fat Man (#5) and DOOM’s BFG 9000 (#1) in their list of the Top Five Guns in Gaming. Elsewhere, don’t miss Terminal Gamer’s list of open world games you should play and I Heart Destroy’s list of 2010’s Most Anticipated Unreleased Game Titles.
Finally, I just received the 200th issue of PC Gamer (congrats guys!). Within the magazine, they include 200 Reasons to Love PC Gaming. Be sure to check it out to see where we’re mentioned.
