I hope they can add some visual feedback to the body physics in a future patch. It really would help. Even some audio feedback would be welcome.

I hope they work on changing the weapons over time too. Many of them seem pretty useless, as there seem to be a few weapons that are just obviously not as good as others. It's not that there are trade-offs, there is just a similar weapon that is better in basically every way.

Christ almighty, another "Scientific" study that is anything but, and then touted as being the WORD OF GOD by a dumbass journalist. Yes, cellphones may be responsible, because we all know that every fucking bee hive in the world has a cell phone jammed up its ass.
Umm... the article doesn't tout anything as being the "WORD OF GOD", and it actually says that other factors like the fungus, pesticides, rainfall patterns and air pollution may be causes as well. It seems likely that there is a combination of factors that are causing the bee problem.

Sounds like all the characters will be making an appearance, but won't be part of your squad. Fine with me. I didn't really like having to juggle that many individuals anyway. I'm thinking six to eight would be good.

This actually sounds like a change for the better. Now if they could actually make some interesting weapons and other gear, and do something to make the combat less repetitive, then we'll be getting somewhere.

I have a 4870 and I'm running the 11.2 drivers still. Everything runs fine for me though.

I'm going to guess at the nationality and say Chinese It may be a stereotype, but it's one that's well-founded, at least for Chinese immigrants. That's actually how they drive in China. All the time in most places. Only a few of the largest cities have somewhat more orderly drivers, but even there it's not at all like it is here.

I just returned a couple weeks ago from my latest visit to China. Had one of the most harrowing cab rides of my life while visiting one of the smallish towns a little ways outside of Shanghai. I could have sworn he was going to kill several pedestrians, and we only avoided several collisions by mere inches, all at at least 40mph+ and over the course of maybe 3 miles or so. It's pretty much a big game of chicken over there.

No kidding. It sounds pretty interesting. Kind of like one of those "escape from a room" games, but with more possible solutions and more freedom since actual humans will be playing a part in determining how well your solutions will perform. Also reminds me of Gratuitous Space Battles a bit

Operatives who have unlocked the "homing beacon" ability must iron-sight enemies to tag them for everyone else.
Homing beacon does a lot more than just let you tell friend from foe. It highlights them and let's you track them just like you can see objectives through walls and stuff. It's rather useless for just telling friends from foes though, because it takes a few seconds to take effect, and doesn't last very long. I just want to be able to tell who's on what team without having to check for a nametag or something. Make it easier like TF2.

Oh, here's the Homing Beacon ability description:
Homing Beacon allows you to place a red outline on an enemy by Iron Sighting on them for several seconds. This will allow the enemy to be seen by all your teammates, even through walls. The outline only lasts for a few seconds. Homing Beacon lets you reveal enemy operatives in disguise.
Also, I read that you can use homing beacon even while disguised. You don't have a crosshair, but if you keep them in the middle of your screen, it will tag them.

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?

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.
