Brink is certainly shaping up to be one to watch come next fall. While much of the E3 press for the game has been positive, you can only really get a feel what people have been raving about when you see the game in motion.

Developer Splash Damage, who have previously worked on only multiplayer expansion packs for existing franchises, such as Doom 3 and Quake Wars, have releases three videos from their E3 demo from earlier this year.

The first shows off the game’s SMART (Smooth Movement Across Random Terrain) system. The game appears to be building off of where Mirror’s Edge left off, implementing a efficient and streamlined movement system, but giving you just enough control so as to dissuade any feelings of autopilot.

The second and third videos show this system incorporated into Brink’s gunplay. The game has a very Borderlands vibe, with its experience dropping enemies. Also displayed is the game’s class system, which allows you to change your character’s load-out mid-game, to best fit the current combat situation. Classes featured include the stealth special operative and the engineer.

Brink’s campaign will feature up to 7 player drop-in/drop-out cooperative play, extensive character customization, and various tattoos to hide your numerous body insecurities. Get ready to enter the fray come fall 2010.

Videos after the jump.

King of Fighters Trailer is AMAZING November 29, 2009

The promo trailer for the upcoming King of Fighters film adaptation was released today, and let me be the first to say that this movie will be awesome (underlined, bolded and italicized for emphasis on how awesome it will be).  With the astute direction of “acclaimed action director” Gordon Chan and the powerhouse trio of Maggie Q, Sean Farris and Ray Park, this movie can’t go wrong.

The raw emotion contained only within this trailer is phenomenal. When that one dude yells at 1:27 I almost cried. And that’s not even mentioning the groundbreaking action choreography. They fight with TRASH BAGS. How awesome is that?

I know it may be a little early, but let me just say right now: King of Fighters will be the Citizen Kane of movies. It will replace Citizen Kane as the Citizen Kane of movies, and from now on when people are debating the artistic merit of video games, they’ll have to ask: “When will we see the King of Fighters of video games?” The only answer: we already have.

Some people may say that this movie trailer is, in fact, not awesome, but those people are stupid and wrong. They just can’t appreciate the brilliance of this work of art.
