The Brink Mega Interview, Episode 2: The Mechanics
Written By
View author's profile

Brink's Creative Director, Richard Ham, joins us again for Episode 2 of our Brink extravaganza. An episode that takes a look at some of the game's mechanics, including how they intend to blur the single player, multiplayer and co-op aspects, the class system, the in-depth customisation and how they'll deal with respawns.

If you missed Episode 1, check it out here.

Check back tomorrow when we talk the art-style and the Spring 2010 bottle-neck amongst other things.

I love how he says "dicks and assholes" making fun cause he doesn't play 1000 hours... he should grow a pair, as every1 on xbox can be 'rude' and its not their fault he is bad... you don't have to play "a game" for 1000 hours to be good at it, most shooters have same controls so if your good at FPS you can play almost all of them well; his reaction time/hand-eye must be bad.

on plus side game looks pretty good. Idk about 'quests / missions' giving more xp than kills..

@#3 - I don't think that's his point =P I think his point is, if he sucks, he doesn't want people to be rude to him because of it.

"Everyone on Xbox can be rude," doesn't make it any more acceptable.

I can't wait to see some gameplay footage so I can actually get a sense of what this game will be like.

@#3 That's not his point, what you just said there pretty much sums it up being that if he IS bad, then people heckle the shit out of him and trash-talk, therefore people online ARE "dicks and assholes", if you hadn't noticed, then where the hell have you been lately? He's just saying that they're trying to make multiplayer a more social experience and get everyone involved in it with little incentives and rewards. Just because you're sort of lousy at the game, doesn't mean you should be called a "fucking noob", or "faggot-piece-of-shit" by any means, and that's what he's trying to put across.

Could listen to this guy all day. When i'm on MP I normally just mute people who are trash talking, even if it's not diredcted at me! I've met some really great people over Live of all skill levels.

@#3: Clearly you're one of the dicks or assholes he's talking about.

looks like someone combined Shadowrun, Team Fortress, and a little Fallout all together. ..and that being said, sounds good to me. Guy is a little over-energetic, but it was good.

It's good to see this guy answering the questions without large pauses between each thing he says. I just really want to see some gameplay footage :(

Having yesterday's quotes put into a bit of context definitely helped. Glad to see so many people jiving with what he has to say.
