Yay!  Loving Brink, can't wait.  ET:Wolf was the best MP game of the last decade...

This man speaks the truth.

Not sure how Brink is going to turn out - early indications haven't been that good. That the game is coming out with heavy price discounts may not bode well.

Sure the team have pedigree but the COD player is not going to be into team based objectives. If they are trying to sell to that crowd, you flood the game with people who just want to run around shooting each other. Not to besmirch the average MW player but co-ordinating simple gameplay tasks does seem to be a little of a stretch. 

Hopefully it generates the same dedicated following of ET once something new, bright and shiny comes along.

Heck yes! What you said.

Game looks incredibly fun, makes me wish i had a gaming PC because i can see how frustrated i would get playing this with a controller.

Mirror's E...oh, never mind...

Edited by Origina1Penguin

That wasn't very impressive by parkour standards.

I'm getting that distinct feeling.

Oh well Dirt 3 for me then.

Parkour is cool but everytime I see like a 14 year old kid practicing on stuff in the town I always find it super funny. When people are scaling buildings in ingenious ways it's amazing to see but when it's a kid jumping from a 2ft wall onto a 1ft wall it's not quite the same.

Posted by Keegs

Cosmic and Fragonard know a good game when they play it! I loved that game too.

This is not the right music for this

I hope my PC will run this. I have been looking forward to this game for awhile now. Dam you over heating graphic cards!

You gotta start somewhere.

GIVE ME MIRROR'S EDGE 2 NOW!

Posted by Napalm

Let's fucking do this.


I always look forward to any game that aims to increase the traversal speeds. I love you Vanquish, Bulletstorm and hopefully Brink.

Where is almost a budget price? The game doesn't come out till next week.
A game that's different (also, it's not  so far from TF2)is exactly what needs to come out, if you want to play a game like COD, well there's COD games for you. If you want to play Halo, there's Halo and Section 8. On and on.

Watching the Dev interviews it seems like they basically started with a list of things that ruin MP and have tried to address them. By default voice chat is disabled, Snipers are gimped (cry me a fucking river, one person having fun trolling a match isn't balanced gameplay, don't care how you cut it), K/D ratios removed because they're not the point, and an AI Director that's pretty similar to L4D's in terms of reacting to what players do and adjusting things.

In reality parkour can exist if it is a state of .5 gravity, and you always know the next move.

In reality is that you cannot do parkour while carrying weapons and shooting at the same time, unless you have four arms.

Posted by fillmoejoe

Yeah, I want Mirror's Edge 2.

Posted by AhmadMetallic

Mirror's Edge is a brilliant fucking game. those parkour videos looked like they're taken from a ME movie

Posted by Agent47
@Swordfish9: Well of course man I am sure we all know that.Though I've seen parts of BRINK where the player has no weapon of course I don't know how that works out.But yeah minus the weapons it is pretty believable.Mainly because one of the designers was a real parkourist.(Is that what you call them?)
Posted by Agent47
@Shadow: I understand how it wouldn't fit but it doesn't seem that out of place.I don't know what else they could use, what would you suggest?
Posted by Olivaw

So was anyone else thinking "Mirror's Edge looks way more like this than Brink" all the way through?

Posted by AxleBro

I don't really care about brink... but i'm totally going to the site advertised in that vid to watch more first person parkour... also mirrors edge wasn't that good, sue me for not enjoying it.

Posted by phrosnite

Average shooter is average.

Posted by Fuzzilla

The only real discount anyone may have been hearing about is from Direct2Drive, it's not an across the board price drop.

Posted by Slaneesh

The real thing look great, the game just looks bad.

Posted by Mumrik

I know they're trying to pump the idea of more natural movement through the environment, but this seems pretty random...

Holy crap, you just sold me on this game.

Absolutely. Not only that, but now I really wanna play Mirror's Edge again. God, I hope the sequel actually becomes a thing at some point and they didn't just scrap that entirely after the mediocre performance of the first one...

I just kept thinking "man, I want Mirror's Edge 2"....

Posted by theswoosh

Mirrors Edge is the most under appreciated game within the Giant Bomb crew. The 1st person traversal in that game was incredible.

Posted by PaulM

some times parkour looks cool and some times it looks so fucking stupid

Posted by Andheez

Been keeping an eye on this for some time now, and think I might actually buy this.  My only hope is that they give you a reason to use these moves rather than its just where you need to go.  Still MP looks pretty fun, and I for one enjoy the exaggerated art style of the players.

Yes, and i was also thinking why are they showing off running on railings. You can do that in every FPS ever made.

And that time it looked really stupid.

Like really, I genuinely think I could have done that =(

Mirror's Edge 2 coming soon!..

Edited by MeatSim

Let's see those people in real life parkour while carrying assault rifles.

Posted by Winternet

The guy in Brink doesn't look like he has legs.

Posted by Funkydupe

When I was watching this I couldn't wait for the Brink segments to end so that I could watch the real stuff. I'll echo what people keep saying: Mirror's Edge II please.

Posted by James_ex_machina

The animation of putting away the gun before grabbing a ledge needs some work. I'm curious how BRINK will turn out

Posted by coonce

i'm going to go throw up now.

This just rekindles my desire for a Mirror's Edge 2!

Posted by jorbear

I'm going to do some parkour to prepare myself for Brink.

Ahh yeah....
Posted by MisterMouse

I wonder how brink will be...

Posted by Jethuty

God damnit sometimes parkour is so fucking dumb....


Its pretty cool when they are doing daredevilish kinda stuff, jumping between houses and what not


Its just so fucking retarded when they jump over some flowers, some benches or jump away from a wall....
Posted by AuthenticM

Yes! Looks great!

SAME
Also, most of us could do all those moves without practice, except for the wall runs and the part where the guy jumps out onto the pole things sticking out of the water.
