The CEO of Splash Damage, and the game director for Brink, Paul Wedgwood has said in an interview that he is hoping that Brink will be a AAA game.
i hope too
AAA = Adaptive Anti Aliasing
Haha, right. AAA status based on budget and backing? AAA status based on review score? Obviously more than likely review scores.
another shooter ......yawn
That's my usual reaction, but this one sounds like it does enough interesting things to be... ummm... interesting. The movement system, the customization, and the ability to play through the story solo, co-op, or even entirely multiplayer sounds cool to me. I like the art style too. My one concern is how the controls will feel.
The basic idea of the story mode is pretty much the same as in UTIII: Training ground for MP (though I still liked it in UT). The only thing this game has gong for it, is the SMART. It's great, but is it enough?
The controls feel great, dare I say it even better than COD.
I think Brink looks awesome, and I can't wait for the 10th.
I can't wait for Brink either! I pre-ordered it, watched every video like a million times, and I CAN'T wait to play this game!
Still quite skeptic on this game.
I have a feeling this game will fail due to it being different to your average COD game, sad i know. Me personally i'm still not sold on the game.
Why does need be a cod style game. Dude cod is too overdone now. Crap if every shooter had to be a cod game fps will be doomed. Problem is pol here well some. Only know cod by what they played on console themtrue cod lovers will know cod from the roots. On pc were it all began non these perk rubbish and crappy peer to peer. With exploits. No brink will hopefully bring something new to the table. Hope it works out.. Preorderd mine shop to.net
I think it will fail because it's too much LIKE CoD (or any other shooter for that matter...). What I mean by that is that it doesn't really stand out. In its heart, it's still just the same deathmatch experience albeit in a slightly different flavour.
I think Brink may succeed for the same reason you state it might fail. If it were anything like COD, I would not have it on preorder.
I still don't know if I'll pick it up.. let's wait and see...
Its good to see that some devs still AIM for greatness and they don't just rely on brand name to carry them thru. I'm looking at you socom 4 and move heroes
dont forget COD
the constant microsoft fanboy makes sure to mention Sony games and neglects to mention any of Microsoft's games in that. Why am I NOT suprised?
Hmm, I see what you mean. 1 bubble, 33 ignoring. (FailOverHero) But there are other games he forgot to mention as you pointed out, with Halo by far being the biggest one on the Xbox. Or for the sake of argument many Mario games. I know there are some good ones in all these series, but there are also the mediocre at best entries.
Like Mortal Kombat, Homefront and Bulletstorm; this is a game you wanna wait a couple of weeks before buying. It will be $30 in no time.
That's the point with all Multiplatform games from now on. Never buying one for $60 again. Waited for Portal 2 and picked it up for $35. Should've waited for MK as well.....
i wait on games that i'm on the fence about buying
AAA Anime Addicts Anonymous AAA Awful, Agonizing, and Aggravating AAA Aliya, the Atrocious Appaloosa AAA Alcoholic Apes Anonymous AAA Angband Across America AAA Always Add Acid AAA Athlon Addicts Anonymous you choose!
Already got my pre-order off amazon. It's indeed a different breed of shooter.
Agreed! I too have mine pre-ordered off of Amazon. The Psycho pack looks awesome!
Im hoping the same but knowing the critics, its gonna be 80-87
AAA? why? Can't they just release a game with tons of features and options to keep people playing online and offline for a while?
Can't wait for this game, it isn't just another boring FPS. More then things then any COD or BF game has to offer, May 10th.
What got me sold is that the game is multi objective based! I am a sucker of objective based FPS. And also the character customization with different body builds that affect the way you play the game.
That was one of the things for me, character customization and weapon customization were the bigger ones for me.
I just wish they would of done dedicated servers for the consoles as well as PC but we are stuck with p2p and that blows.
Wha? Dedicated Servers were confirmed for PC. Not sure why they wouldnt have Servers as its 8v8 online.
Dedicated servers only for PC consoles are p2p. Bethesda said this in an interview 3 days ago. http://n4g.com/news/753258/...
Brink has dedicted servers for pc. Only a fake gamer would think this game is bad.
I don't think it'll be a AAA game knowing that 99% of casual console gamers still haven't even heard this game or don't know what it is.
because you represent 99% of casual gamers huh?
Words can't describe how disgusted I am at some of these lame comments. How can you not be excited about a new FPS that is COMPLETELY different from what's on the market right now, or anything that's scheduled to come out this year? Because you all want the same type of FPS yet complain about them all being the same. But I digress, these same lames will continue to complain and buy games that are exactly what they already own. "I want something different!" here you go. "Oh no it's not like such and such, I don't like it" I thought you wanted something different? " I meant better graphics for my fav franchise! " Socom fans complain because Socom4 isn't like previous Socoms I can't wait to read the comments about BF3 if it turns out to be the same way...
