TVGB: "After being available at industry events since E3 earlier in the year - where it impressed the hell out of some Dennis guy - some actual footage from Splash Damage's Brink has finally been released for the internet crowds."
yeah I was at Eurogamer Expo when he was going through this. good stuff
wanna see the pc graphics though
yeah this was demoed on 360 IIRC, and it is still (pre)alpha from what he was telling us. the PC version should be good, no dedi servers though, but its a co-op so i dont mind
That looks insane for pre-alpha.
It looks good, not KZ2 like people were saying, but good nonetheless (plus it has at least another 8 - 10 months of development). As I said it looks like Mirror's Edge meets Killzone 2 graphically and now gameplay wise at least the characters movement (kind of sluggish, but still agile). Did anyone else notice Master Chief @ 2:50.
The character models do though. What most impressed me was the "SMART" system, I loved it. It seems that they're doing what Mirror's Edge aimed to do but integrating it into a full FPS experience.
I'm getting the same feeling from this as I got when I started seeing Mass Effect. I my feeling is right this time as well.
looks ight at best
is in brink check it out at 3:00
Wow, this doesn't look anywhere near as good as KZ2 or UC2. Perhaps for the 360 people, but I don't see how this is so great. I'm sure the PC version will look better though.
It looks nice. The walking seems a little bouncy, but maybe that's just me...
...so it's a clone of mirrors edge. The following look EXACTLY the same as mirrors edge. The cheap weapon models, and reticle. The stylized world. The shaky cam when running. The textures and lighting. Sounds I've heard of games using obvious influences. But this is a carbon copy. What B.S anyone who disagrees, watch this mirrors edge clip http://www.youtube.com/watc...
The game looks fantastic. It definitely does have the photo realistic look of Killzone 2 or Uncharted 2 and that's more a decision of the art direction. I'm surprised when I see games like this running on the XBox 360. I think the system still has a lot of gas left in the tank and no developer has really tried to push the console to it's limits.
lolz, oh please, killzone2 came, went, and lost tremendously up against halo3. and halo reach will no doubt set more standards far beyond killzone again, the ost of halo game alone is unmatched.
LOL loser. I'd be hungry for quality too if my 360 only had turd of the year awards.
The game looks Bad Ass, and innovative with its S.M.A.R.T system.
SMART is not exactly innovative. It's copy cat of Mirror Edge gameplay. ME main flaws were the poor shooting and the trial and error platforming. I expect ME2 to fix those flaws, it will be very interesting to see how it compares with Brink. EDIT: OK. I got a stupid disagree. EVERYTHING I wrote is TRUE. Well unless ME2 is canned. Anyways, @disagreer Play ME and watch this video again
There's a difference between using gameplay elements similar to Mirror's Edge and copying it. I'm not seeing any need to run and jump from rooftops. Though I'd love to see this game try and make a derivative of hand to hand that's similar to ME. Imagine stealing weapons.
Because to innovate is to do something never done before, and what has been shown in this video has been done before, in ME. That was my point. Well perhaps copycat is a too strong word. @bellow Sure, no problem :) Just for the record I do love ME, and FPSes with ME type of gameplay are long overdue. Definitely Brink shows a lot of potential to raise the bar gameplay wise. I expect ME 2 to bring some healthy competition in though.
Thanks for reminding me, i forget about the game play in ME. Some system,but improved upon hopefully.
While not completely "innovative" this is certainly unique and shows great promise. The Fall 2010 delay has confirmed their AAA ambitions!
I'd say it's closer to AssCreed's hold one button to do everything platforming. ME's platforming takes skill.
Good point xabmol. AC platforming it is. Mirror's Edge is in another league.
@xabmol Well, perhaps but Assassins Creed is not a FPS. Besides, we dont know how challenging will the final game be. The stuff we watched in this video is pretty easy to do in ME as well. It makes sense Brink devels want to add more interactive movement into the gameplay but still keeping a strong shooting component, something ME lacked.
@ Raztad the SMART system does look to inovate..in mirrors edge you had to press the jump or slide button, but it looks like in this you choose which you want to do simply by aiming lower or higher and then the game decides which to do, which is where the innovation comes in.
i honestly don think its looks that great. at e3 or whatever they said the graphics are beyond killzone 2, i dont think so, but that is not why i dont think it looks that great. the "auto-button" thing seems like they took it straigt from assassins creed. All this looks like is what mirrors edge could of been. not that this game wont be good, but as of right now i dont see anything that makes it that special. it may end up being a great game, but i seriously doubt that it will be GOTY worthy, especialy if its out in 2010 since GT5, god of war 5, halo reach (i personaly dont like halo), agent, alan wake, and killzone 3(possibly). if it comes out 2011 it still has too much competition for me to suspect anything. besides its far too early to even compare this game to anything since hardly anything has been shown
The first level of KZ2 looks better than this, when Sev is looking into the mirror. I still get in awe when I look at that purple light around the circular pathway. It's truly something to withhold. Well it was made by alien hardware ;) http://www.youtube.com/watc... Wasn't BOTS hyping this game as they're own? Did I not see the PS3 logo at the end of that trailer or is it just me?
The PS3 logo IS there.
doesn't look as good as KZ2, but you can see that somethings seem to be inspired by it.
So let me guess this straight A fresh FPS with a fresh story and gameplay. Good graphics, 8 played co-op AND online. This sounds like a GOTY.
gotta wait till at least nov to tell... so many good games coming out next year
CO-OP can save even the most mediocore games. EVEN if the system is perfect and the gramerate isn't solid, playing with 7 other friends can save all that.
Resistance 2 had 8 player coop and 60 player online. Just incase anyone forgot.
I never forgot, LEVEL 30 soldier ;)
I got my Resistence 2 copy very recently. I almost pass on R2 because the haters (both R1 fans and other box fans). Thankfully I didnt, R2 main campaign is pretty fun but its best part is the class based 8 player coop. Awesome coop mode, really awesome, endless amount of fun. @mv321 bellow I guess Insomniac is having a nightmare trying to satisfy its lost R:FoM fans. I hope they dont return to the stupid narrative, or the gritty looking. The only thing I would like to return in R3 is the weapons wheel. Everything else is much better in R2. The coop could be expanded in new ways, but I'm very happy the way it is.
The problem is Insomniac listen, look at the reviews of R1 and look at what they fixed in R2. Then the R:FOM fanboys complained because they got something new in a sequel. EDIT: I kinda liked the gritty-ness of FOM... but after all the generic FPS's R2 made a nice change. I hope they keep the horror level, those a actual scary.(If you've played FOM/R2 you'd know the ones). Insomniac just prove how much control they have on you. With other games if they dared put a slowed paced level in you'd hate it because you'd run 'n' gun every time and die EVERY time untill you changed your ways, but in FOM I felt compelled first time round to go slowed because of the enemies, music and setting. I want the forest level/cannary to be put into R3 in their own way. I loved those levels almost as much as the tank one.
"I almost pass on R2 because the haters " 1. Who listens to haters? 2. R1 fans (like me) are not haters, they just liked 1 better
Your allowed your opinion but I don't think it was you he was on about; Instead the sort of people who -Called Resistance 2 a terrible game -Suggested people avoid it. Most people have something, but I dare you to go pack to FOM I recently and you'd be surprised about how outdated it is gameplay wise.
@baum I get your point, but we got several threads here discussing how awful R2 was in comparison to R1 (fun game, specially the crazy weapons all available through the weapon wheel) and I thought to pass on R2 because many of those comments were coming from fellow PS3 owners. However after playing the game myself (I was mainly attracted by the coop mode), I find its main campaign rather enjoyable, nevermind some cons. Insomniac laid down the core aspect of a very innovative class based coop campaign, that alone makes R2 outstanding.
everyone who watch brink at e3 i think they said Brink looks soo good then killzone 2 better graphics all that... well by looking video, nice grapics but better kilzone 2 >>?? Nahhh forget it .. but hey this is only one video, need to see more until i say yup better killzone
but of course eventually kz2 will be topped... no game can stay superior forever... im still shocked crysis hasnt been topped though after all these years
but you forget 1 thing crysis sucked i mean really it didnt have multiplayer the story sucked and i got boring very fast the only good thing in crysis is the graphics wow like we really care fore that its not worth your time and money.Dont trust me i have a lot of friends that also played it and we all have the same opinion. so you have to ask your self do you want to sacriface everything that makes a good game fore only graphics
but i mean only by graphical terms... you cant disagree to that .... i personally love story over graphics
this looks very good if you ask me.
... anything that brings something new to the plate .. FPS are played out ... I mean seriously; a hint of anything new is nice. But yea, the guy at 03:10 looks like Obama lol :p
Looks pretty mediocre to me so far.
OMG a game I've never heard of might be delayed? What will I do??? lol Seriously, enough with the FPS games. Give me more 3rd person shooters.
From a gameplay standpoint, for a FPS. Though I do agree, I'm kinda getting sick of FPS.
8 player coop? Sold.
16 would be better. Also hope they're offering a big semi-interactive city. Not just staged arenas.
There is also 2 campaigns. You have the choice to play either the Resistance campaign or the Security campaign. So lot's of co-op/single player fun to be had.
meh, two different sides with the same goal: control the city. Now if they can put in a few water levels w/jet skis, make it possible to actively flood areas during a fight, then we can start talking.
Looks like Mirrors Edge gameplay is in this game only its more automatic this time around, I hope they make the controls right for this game then Mirrors Edge controls was.
Looks promising, like the customisation on offer and they seem to have the feature set in place to keep every type of gamer happy. "Smart" system "feels" very Mirrors Edge in it's movement. Only thing I didn't like, the amount of gun movement while walking. To much "bob" makes me feel weird.
Looks awsum! =D can't waaaait
Those graphics are insane!!!
@ halo_reach You must have an xbox 360 the graphics arn't that good, really loving the options he listed though, but yes 'smart' is mirrors edge
Looks good but we need to see more gamplay 1st before judging. Alan Wake however is a monster and shows 360 has some strength left in it.
The running/walking reminds me of Muppets. Also have to wonder why there are no female characters. They'd be perfect for a sniper/scout class.
The developers for this game have alot of work to do before Brink is even worthy to be GOTY anytime soon to much of the gameplay came from Mirrors Edge they have to do something different from the other games to make it worthy enough to be GOTY in the future like what little big planet did.
Looks pretty sweet, nice artstyle as well. Could be one to look out for.
Cagney is da man! You said it nice art style everyone crying about how it doesn't look better graphically than KZ2 needs to shut it. This game is obviously not trying to look like KZ2! How do you make a distinctive game? You make it different from the others! For those stuck on KZ2 keep your foot on the breaks because everyone else has there foot on the gas playing fun games that don't like alike!
This game looks really good. Just got hyped about it. Story looks interesting, graphics look nice. Hope to hear a lot of good things about this game.
i thought a lot of 360 fans were saying this look far superior to KZ2, don't get me wrong though, this game looks good but not KZ2 graphics, at least not yet. Game looks interesting though and will probably get this when it comes out.
Mirrors Edge mix with some Killzone 2 and Crackdown, but that is the way I see it and I might have to get this game after seeing this video. Better video for it then what I seen on the HHGamer show, not saying he didn't do a good job, but its best to wait for awhile be for judging a title.
Why is everyone getting so excited about this game. Resistance 2 had 8 player Co-op and 60 player multiplayer. This looks good but no where near Killzone 2 good. Based off this video, Modern Warfare 1 looks better than this. But maybe there are other environments that will look better.
