Here are my questions/concerns:
2. Unlocks. How much stuff will people have when they start? How quickly will things unlock? WIll weapons unlock for all classes simultaneously? Will all classes get to use all weapons?

3. I'm interested in what the "challenges" are. Timed single-player tutorials or what?

Items and powers are unlocked by levelling, one of the videos said weapons will be unlocked by the challenges, (some of) which can be completed in co-op.

House of Blues is probably the safest option, I think we'll go with that

Sweet, cheers Vern. And I've been playing CS last couple of weeks trying to get my skills back, but I'm still rusty and probably going to get owned hard on this for a while. Still I think this is going to be a heap of fun. Can't really recall the last time I was this stoked about an FPS.

I'll definitely drop in, just so I can show all of you how to properly catch a bullet with your teeth.

No idea what to call it, any ideas?

Off the top of my head? House of Blues? Blue's Brigade? the Brink of Blues?

you had to hold down the middle mouse button to bring up the menu then just move the mouse around to select the suit power

That's what I envision. I am more concerned about the four directional buttons used for special abilities (heal, turret, molotov). I'm sure they will simply just assign them to Q and E and F and the like.

I was thinking about that objective wheel also how that will work, but actually Crysis had similar thing with the suit abilities. If I remember correctly you had to hold down the middle mouse button to bring up the menu then just move the mouse around to select the suit power. I believe those powers could also be preset to buttons instead of the menu stuff.

I think that wheel menu will work similarly in Brink, but that is just what I think, we will find out next week.

Here are my questions/concerns:

1. How much of a gimmick is SMART, and how much is it useful? I could see it radically impacting the game in a positive manner, with people coming in from previously inaccessible angles, or just being "oh you press a button instead of using a crate to jump up there". Sliding looks neat, though.

2. Unlocks. How much stuff will people have when they start? How quickly will things unlock? WIll weapons unlock for all classes simultaneously? Will all classes get to use all weapons?

3. I'm interested in what the "challenges" are. Timed single-player tutorials or what?

4. Map size. I suspect it's going to be a linear progression like the ETQW maps were (one objective after another).

5. Integrating single and multiplayer seems cool: pulling down people to replace bots in your game if desired (Shogun 2 did this, kinda).

6. The effect of body types. Just speed/climbing ability/damage?

7. The dynamic objective wheel might be cool.

8. PC controls. Specifically, how the objective wheel is going to work on a keyboard.

9. I think letting people use revive syringes whenever instead of paddling someone and having them become immediately shot (ahem, Battlefield) is neat.

10. Bots

Ahh weet, good on ya Vern. Got a name for it yet?

Also just wanted to chime in to say it was nice to see a little but of the Aquarium in this film. That's the area I'm most stoked to check out.

Indeed! The past year seemed so short in comparison to the week leading up to its release. =X
