Brink Discussion Thread

Brink release date has been moved to May 10th. I am so pumped for this game. Start spreading the word guys.

All trailers and info can be found at www.brinkthegame.com

What faction/body type/class will you guys be using?

more info about the gameplay and balance can be found at http://www.next-gen.biz/features/balancing-on-the-brink

Do not expect Brink to be a closed system where you buy the game and that's it. We want to engage people in a dialogue, problems they run into, bugs they've discovered. That way we can be responsive to what players feel they need from the game, and it's very exciting for us.
Quote:
Something we've had a lot of feedback on from the team is the damage of weapons. If we got in an arm's race, raising everything up, we'd turn it into more of a Call Of Duty-style game where it's about spotting the threat and firing off to neutralise it. We didn't want to do that. With our cool movement system, I've always thought it would negate that if you don't have time to react. So we've gone towards the Halo-model of damage, I suppose, but I personally compare it more to Quake, to hitting jump pads and being in the air. I look at it as bringing more things down to baseline rather than boosting things up.

at first i thought this game was going to be pretty awful, but the closer it gets to launch the better it looks. i am really debating if i should go pre-order or not. i am extremely interested to see how this turns out...bethesda is one of my favorite developers so i fully trust them to find a way to make this awesome. also from what i have seen with dev interviews this game is certainly geared towards a more mature audience. i like the idea of rewarding the mentality of team work and 'you make the game more fun for me, i make the game more fun for you.'

i just hope they have character customization/advancement beyond aesthetic looks. when i rank up i don't just want new clothes..i want abilities, attachments, guns, etc.

Even if we could find a perfect equation that truly expresses the epic purity of balance in all of our 58 different abilities, players would still call bull**** on it.

edit- i am also extremely disappointed to hear consoles will not be getting dedicated servers. the best game in the world is worthless if it can't be played properly.

I was thinking the same but for security. Purely because I think a lot of people will play resistance.

Should be noted Bethesda isn't developing this, only producing it, meaning they have very little to do with it creatively. Splash Damage is the developer, and I believe this is their first game as that company, I could be wrong on that though.

Everything I had heard about this game a year ago made me think it would be **** as well. But I gotta say I'm intrigued with the whole movement system. I'll wait to see how it reviews, but I'll pick it up if I hear good things.

I loved MAG despite its problems, but its almost impossible to get into a Dom match in that game anymore, and it never quite felt completely polished despite constant updates and support from Zipper. Would like for Brink to fill that hole in my heart.

For me I think its going to. I'm just trying to make sure people know about it. Because they haven't advertised much and a lot of people I've talked about it with didn't know about it before I told them.

I remember reading it in Game Informer a long while back before seeing this thread, but for some reason I thought it was more of like a Mirror's Edge-esque game?

AFAIK it's a TF2-ish class based shooter with parkour elements

AKA complete rip-off of another game with a different setting and an added gimmick

It's taking the best from alot of games and adding its own bells and whistles. Classes and sort of the looks from tf2, but i think it will shoot more like crysis 2(not rockets and shotguns like tf2), and movement similar to mirror's edge, with a **** ton of customization and other goodies thrown in. For me, it will be a refreshing escape from all the generic cod rip-offs. It's definitely something fresh for me not a rip-off.
