UK Charts: Brink smashes into number one

Brink has made it to number one in the UK Charts. You'd have hoped so, since it was developed in Bromley. I used to live in Bromley, opposite a kebab shop, in an apartment frequently visited by a guy who'd drink a pint of his own piss and draw on himself with a stick of poo. I have nightmares about that place. 

Anyway, I still love Brink in spite of its many issues, so I'm glad to see it selling well. Hopefully Splash Damage can take the success and turn it into a far, far better game. Brink has so much potential, and I'd have hated to see that potential die with the one flawed game. 

The rest of the chart is fairly unremarkable. Check it out below.
