Back in June I was on a flight to London returning home from E3 2009. We had just completed three days of non-stop, behind-closed-doors demos of Brink, to standing-room-only crowds of journalists and industry veterans.

What really struck me more than anything was simple: “People get it, they want to play this way too, and we’re not completely mad!” Since the show, the interest in the game has continued to grow.
