  1. Im disappointed, i was hoping for 103 bajillion combos, 102.247 isnt enough for me

    Back to Quake 1 ……….. :P

    Really looking forward to Tuesday, I know of at least 5 ppl that will be getting Brink apart from myself, and I know a clan thats transitioning from Team Fortress to Brink also, best of luck!

  2. I wish I knew what was after “trillion”, because 102 of them is a damn big number.

    The most important number is 4 though, which is the number of days left till BRINK!

  3. Even though there are that many options you always seem to find that one person that is similar to you. Looking at the customizations options I honestly think you just broke a world (video game) record.

    Customization is a big deal for me so it makes me happy to have all these options. Only thing throwing me off is the 45 ways to die. That’s insane.

  4. I swear to god if BRINK does what COD and TF2 are doing with an online store i will shove their smart key up their asses

  5. @Me
    calm down.. there will be no online store.
    We will get DLC with new Content and so on – but an online store will not happen. This isnt “Bethesda”-like ;)

    Also, where the hell got CoD an online store?!
    And who the hell force you @ TF2 to buy something in this store? Its just another option to get items. Thats all!

  6. I have a feeling that on launch day, I will have spent more time figuring out what body type I like the most and customizing my looks more than I’ve spent playing the game.

  7. This game is going to produce some outstanding YouTube videos. With that many player customizations, the odds of having twins are fairly low. There’s probably going to be clans that choose to have the same outfit, but that’s resonable.

  8. I’m not really impressed by the size of these numbers and neither should anyone who paid attention for five minutes in the stochastics part of his math class. Still, the ones not regarding the customization options are interesting. I wonder if the number of ways to die includes each weapon (different weapon = different way to die?).

  9. Unique Female Characters (not counting minor tint variations or body types): 0
    Unique Female Characters (not counting minor tint variations but including body types): 0
    Unique Female Characters (including minor tint variations, but not body types): 0
    Unique Female Characters (including minor tint variations and body types): 0
    Total Female Characters: 0

    The huge number of other variations makes Bethesda’s conjecture that there isn’t “space” to include female models seem that much more ridiculous.

    Bethesda: “If we’d added female models, we’d have had to cut in half the number of assets we planned to make as each would need a male and a female version.” — “we were faced with an incredibly tough choice: massively cut back the amount of customization options as well as the quality of the assets, or cut female models.”

    You know what? Half of 102,247,681,536,000,000 is still pretty fuggin huge.

  10. This game is a disapointment. I have been gaming for over 20 years and i feel ripped-off. The trailer does not represent what you gethen you purchase this game. Characters float around aimlessly, objectives are unclear. I can go on and on discribing problems with this game.
