Brink made a huge splash (pun intended) at recent stops in LA, NY, and parts of Europe. We already covered off on some coverage last week (as has Splash Damage on their site), but there’s plenty more to share. To get started, watch the GameTrailers video (above) with the game’s creative director, Richard Ham.
Elsewhere, Lee Bradley of Play.tm recently played the game, and it sounds like Splash Damage’s goals for the game spoke directly to him. Here’s a snippet of his preview:
“Because the truth is, an FPS hasn’t had me that intrigued for a long time. Perhaps it’s timing, perhaps its design or maybe it’s just the infectious energy of the development team. They know they’re onto something good. Brink could be very special indeed.”
We’ve only scratched the surface on the new coverage. After the break, find out why Destructoid claims the game “truly looks to have something for everyone” and more.
Welcome to another round of Around the Web… step right up and read the news!
But first, with RAGE’s new trailer unveiled, we thought we share some archived coverage for those of you catching up on the title. Above is a GameTrailers’ interview (featuring gameplay) from QuakeCon last year with creative director Tim Willits. For more of RAGE (and Tim), check out the videos embedded here.
Moving along, one of my favorite stories of the year so far is this one I spotted a week back on Kotaku. It’s about a Fallout fan named Gareth. Unlike most of us, Gareth can’t play games with his hands, but he’s put together a setup that allows him to play games using his chin. Watch a video of him playing New Vegas here… cool, inspiring stuff.
Staying in the Mojave, last month we blogged about an ambitious mod project for New Vegas called Project Nevada. Those interested in checking out the mod can download it now at New Vegas Nexus.

Here’s a quick snippet of Evan’s interview with Mr. Stern…
There seems to be a lot of sociological commentary churning in the game’s environment and story. Where did you go for inspiration for that?
We want Brink to be sticky: both to draw players in and keep them imaginatively engaged, even when they’re not playing. The test of any character or scenario is whether it lives on in your imagination even after you’ve stopped playing the game, so we wanted to incorporate real world thematic content into the storylines for Brink for players to become engaged.
After the break, we’ve got more coverage on Brink — plus updates for New Vegas.
As noted last week, there’s a new iOS update for RAGE and RAGE HD up on iTunes. To learn more about the update, watch the trailer above. Even with the update, both RAGE and RAGE HD are still priced at $.99 and $1.99, respectively.
Around the web returns with a mix of news for Fallout: New Vegas and RAGE mobile.
We start with the former. Earlier this week we put the word out that the latest game update for New Vegas has been submitted. The update will be available on each platform (PS3, PC, and Xbox 360) soon, and you can find the latest updates in our forums here.
In other news for the game, today X-Play announced their Best of 2010 award nominees — with Fallout: New Vegas receiving nominations for Best Writing and Best RPG. New Vegas has also picked up Best RPG nominations at 1uP, Just Push Start, and already won at PS3 Gamerzines!
