This month at GamesCom and QuakeCon, we let both press and fans play Brink against human-controlled opponents for the first time — with both groups coming away impressed — so impressed that consumer areas, we saw players coming back for seconds and thirds.
Didn’t have a chance to see the panels and presentations at QuakeCon 2010? No worries — the fine folks at Gamespot have recaps (and some video) for you to catch up on.
One of my personal highlights of the show was attending Rocket Talk — featuring legends Richard “Lord British” Garriott and John Carmack talking about their passion for space exploration. For a summary of the talk, head here. Be sure to watch Garriott’s presentation on his journey to the International Space Station (embedded above) — it’s really amazing stuff.
