Brink Launch Trailer

The Bethesda Blog now offers the Brink (BRINK?) launch trailer on the eve (brink?) of the North American launch of Splash Damage's first-person shooter. The clip sets the story for the game's core conflict, and shows off combat with plenty of gameplay footage. It is accompanied by this note on getting your hands on the game as early as possible: "For those looking to play the game at the strike of midnight, call your local retailer to see if they have a midnight opening. And if you’re playing on Steam and Direct2Drive, you’ll be able to unlock the PC game at midnight EST [sic]." There's also an interview on VG247 where Splash Damage CEO Paul Wedgwood discusses the game and the Bethesda Blog also has part two of a preview of Prima’s Official Game Guide for Brink, be still our beating hearts. Finally, an Ilabaca vs. Brink Trailer on ActionTrip compares the game's acrobatic maneuvers to real-life parkour.

Thus far, not a bad experience. My only significant complaint is in the audio direction. One of the things that both the CoD series and BF series do very well is give you solid audio and visual cues when you've hit someone so there's no wondering.

In this game, it's like the audio is just missing. The gun sounds are fine, and I can see if I've hit someone via their health bar, but not having an aural response when I hit someone is very noticable. Hell, I walked up to someone and melee'd them and the only reason I knew I hit them was because they were on the ground. You'd think swinging the butt of your gun at someone would warrant at least a thump of some sort. All I hear is the animation sound of swinging the gun and then the enemy falls over. It's just an odd disconnect.

Beyond that, the game is fun for the most part. A bit floaty, but that's more than made up for with the freedom of movement. Oh, and whoever thought up the mechanics of the escort missions should be fired. Seriously... the npc just wanders along on his own timeline whether you like it or not. You come to a corner and slow to look out and see if there are enemies, by the time you've turned back, the VIP (who's an NPC) has wandered out into the open and been shot. So you're constantly following behind him and getting him back up over and over and over until he finally reaches the objective, having already died (sorry, been 'incapacitated') a thousand times on the way. Just plain weird.
