BRINK Free Weekend

The Steam Website is now offering a 75% off sale on BRINK, kicking off a free play weekend for Splash Damage's first-person shooter. Here's a refresher on the game:

Brink is an immersive first-person shooter that blends single-player, co-op, and multiplayer gameplay into one seamless experience, allowing you to develop your character whether playing alone, with your friends, or against others online. You decide the combat role you want to assume in the world of Brink as you fight to save yourself and mankindís last refuge. Brink offers a compelling mix of dynamic battlefields, extensive customization options, and an innovative control system that will keep you coming back for more.

Unfortunately, even at a cost of zero dollars, you're being cruelly cheated out of the time you spend on it.

The game may possibly have stood a chance had Splash Damage responded to critics early, fixed the tech issues/bugs, and released more content in month one/two. Instead, they still have a buggy pile months later, released extra content way too late to stop players from jumping ship, and just now got to coding in some of their promised improvements from a long time ago.

At this point, the game can never even crack the Steam top 100 - which, for essentially a Multiplayer only game (the AI is amongst the worst I've seen in recent times), is a very, very bad thing.

It's a shame, because I badly wanted it to live up to even a portion of the hype it generated.
