96 USD for Brink, or most any other game, is really overpriced. I'd just resign myself to being 2 years behind the gaming curve and only buy games that are on sale for about 25% of the launch price.

Single player campaign is essentially just the multiplayer missions, but with bots instead of other players. It's basically just the training mode for the game. Enemies will have a red glow to them. If it's an escort mission (think TF2 push the cart mission), then the VIP will have a yellow border on him if you set him as your objective. Anything you set as an objective (middle mouse by default), will be shown in yellow.

I spent 2 hours on Challenges solo.
Hour on campaign solo.
Then half hour on multiplayer with 8 people.
This is more like what I did. It takes a little while to get a feel for the game. I spent a couple hours on challenges, and then played through half the resistance campaign. Then played online for an hour or so. Then finished the resistance campaign.

I'm enjoying it. I still think it could use some more work, but I suspect we'll see more in the coming weeks. Some new maps would be cool too.

The game is a little rough around the edges, but I still find it fun. I'm interested to see what they can do to improve it though. And yeah, it really needs a better server browser. That thing sucks.

Does anyone know if the voice chat works in this game? Doesn't seem to for me. Haven't heard anyone else talk ingame yet either.

ATI cards have a lot of issue with this game right now, so ATI users beware.

Not sure what the issue is. I have a Radeon 4870 and no problems at all. Maybe it just affects some cards?

Ok nin, is there something specifically that you like better about the up arrow vs the breadcrumbs? What does it do that breadcrumbs doesn't that makes you like it better?

News Comments > Brink Launch Trailer
53. Re: Brink Launch Trailer May 10, 2011, 12:17 Wowbagger_TIP
 
So far I'm really liking it. I've just been playing SP and challenge missions, but it's pretty good. No performance issues at all. Only one crash so far, and that's after I alt-tabbed out and left it that way for a while. No crashes while playing so far.

The bot AI definitely isn't good, but I don't think it's as horrible as some are saying either. I'm sure they'll keep working on it. I'd love to see this game get the kind of attention that TF2 gets, but I know that's not likely. Really though, the SP is just a training ground for MP anyway. Maybe some of these reviewers should learn how to play before shitting all over the game. Morons. Guess they're too used to the "press A to win" types of games.

One thing I've noticed is that it looks like some of the weapons are going to end up being totally useless because there are other weapons that are essentially the same, but with better stats. They could probably remove half the weapons and it would actually be better. I think there will be a fair bit of balancing needed over time, but that's true of pretty much every MP game.

It works better for you, I prefer the arrow.
That's cool. I just don't see how the ability to go up one folder with one click is better than the ability to go up to any folder in the current path with one click. I guess we all just have our idiosyncrasies.

I also recommend CLASSIC SHELL - it fixes one of the biggest problems of Win7 - the detail pane not showing any useful details!
What details doesn't it show? And PropheT is right about using the folder breadcrumb thing. It's way more useful than the up arrow.

I play pretty regularly and I haven't crashed the game in years, I have a ping of no more than 80 on the servers I play, and I can't recall the last time I had a memorable glitch.

You might want to get your system checked out.
Seconded. I've been playing the game since release, and I can't remember ever having a crash. There have been some odd gameplay glitches over the years, but those have been sorted out. If there's new issues, I haven't seen them.

I really want to get it for the same reason. But F activation limits.
That's why I originally didn't buy it either. I figure now if it becomes a problem for me, I'll just download a crack for it.

The conclusion, plus or minus two basis points is as follow:

Yes, you are the only one.

You can't log in with Steam on multiple systems simultaneously, either. The only issue with it and GFWL is that Netflix is tied to the Live account on the 360 and needs to be a gold account to work, otherwise this would be a non-issue with GFWL as well.

Yes, but you can login on two different machines without going through some ridiculous account transfer process. Can't do that with two XBoxes.

While this does look cool, and barring any tragic revelations about it, I'm sure I'll be picking it up at launch, I still hope that Mechwarrior 5 gets back on track at some point. That's the game I'm really wanting. That, or something like Heavy Gear or Chrome Hounds.

It depends on how they deal with the "Why get the new one?" question.
Console gamers will buy it because it says "Call of Doody" on the package. Nothing more need be done. A lot of PC gamers probably will too, but not nearly as high a percentage I'll bet.

Who gives a shit? The fact that these phrases are associated with him means I'll never want to use them anyway, except for purposes of making fun of him, which I'm sure is covered by fair use.

I'm waiting for them to fix more of the remaining issues with the game. It has a lot of potential, but still needs quite a bit of work to live up to it. Things like being able to see the details of the ships that you can buy, such as how many and what types of hardpoints they have, or better abilities to get pricing information from stations within a system without having to go to them. I'd like to see combat get slowed down a bit too. There's a mod to increase shield strengths all around, but I think it needs more fine-tuning than just that. Combat just isn't terribly tactical right now. You don't really have much time to do more than just blast away at a couple components of a ship.
