Dirty Bomb's grenade launching class is ingeniously called Nader

Have you been enjoying my news posts on Destructoid so far? Well hold on to your undercrackers because after this paragraph you sure as fuck won't: I loved Brink. I pre-ordered it, I played it to death, I got a character to ...

Dirty Bomb aims high with its focus on hardcore FPS action

The folks at Splash Damage have been busy over the last two years. Since the release of Brink and a stint on Batman: Arkham Origins' multiplayer, they figured it was time to return to their roots with a heavy focus on PC...

Review: Batman: Arkham Origins: Cold, Cold Heart

So far, the Batman Arkham Origins Season Pass has been a steaming pile of poop. Buyers have received some extremely underwhelming skin packs, and a piss-poor series of challenge maps for their cash, with the promise...

Review: Batman: Arkham Origins: Initiation

I was pretty disappointed with Arkham Origins. Maybe not as crushingly disappointed as Jim was, but I still felt like it was the weakest entry in the Arkham saga so far, and Warner Bros. Montreal didn't really do anything to make me confident in the future of the series. Sadly, the newest DLC doesn't do them any favors either.

Review: Batman: Arkham Origins

Batman: Arkham Origins had to endure a lot of cynicism from the peanut gallery as it rushed headlong from sudden announcement to pre-Christmas release. It's hardly surprising, too -- after the Arkham series earned high c...

Extraction: A free-to-play FPS with some solid roots

Many of my staff members wander off in the other direction after hearing things like "free-to-play first-person shooter." I get it. But I wanted to see Extraction's debut at PAX this past weekend because Splash Damage were be...

Arkham Origins on Wii U lacks multiplayer, naturally

Wii U is looking pretty down in the dumps. Maybe some quality software in the near future will cheer it right back up. Perhaps a little Batman: Arkham Origins -- I hear it's got multiplayer now. Well, it does on every platfor...

Counter on Splash Damage webpage teases reveal

There's a countdown timer on the Splash Damage webpage. It seems that the people behind Brink have something new coming up, with a reveal scheduled on midday, November 29.  The logo on this timer is surely a hint. Any ideas? The image name is 'car_teaser' if that means anything to you. You might want to poke around in the forum for hints.

Review: Brink
by Jim Sterling

Splash Damage has had a decent career working on various id Software properties over the years, but this is the first time that the lads from Bromley (respect) have struck out with an original IP of their own. 

Brink has received a lot of attention for its unique visual style and energetic, run-and-gun gameplay. It's certainly beautiful, and the energy cannot be argued against. However, there's something ... strange about Brink.

In fact, strange might not even begin to describe it.

Brink, the upcoming first-person shooter from Enemy Territory developer Splash Damage, is bringing a novel approach to a crowded market. It incorporates elements from a variety of popular genres, but does so in a way that makes it seem like a unique, multifaceted experience.

I had the opportunity to play Brink at a recent press event in New York. Based on the hour that I spent with the game, I think it’s going to be one of the standout shooters of the year.

Running through Brink with Splash Damage

[Editors note: Despite how hard cameraman and tech-guy Roy Malcomber tried we had several technology fails and apologise for sound quality]. Brink is awesome and I could spend all day trying to explain the game to you but that would be pointless. So, I am going to let the CEO of Splash Damage, Paul Wedgewood, do it instead. Enjoy!

I was able to get about 20 minutes of playtime while I spoke to the developers, so go ahead and check below for my hands-on impressions of Brink's multiplayer.
