Brink was weird. It mashed together multiplayer gunplay with single-player narrative, then spiced up its chunky concoction with parkour and levels set on floating cities (because global warming).

Facebook can accommodate discussions about video games, yeah, but Facebook is also Facebook. As in, there are privacy concerns, and it looks like we're still in 2006.

Following up on last month's trailer, here's a look at some pre-alpha multiplayer gameplay from Brink and Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory developer Splash Damage's brand new title, Dirty Bomb.
The game may've met with a lukewarm reception when it hit last year, but the one thing that Splash Damage's Brink had going for it was an amazing art style.

The developers at Splash Damage and Bethesda have confirmed that the first DLC for Brink will be free, as promised. Well, free for two weeks. Titled "Agents of Change", the add-on is set to release in early July.
Wow, this doesn't make any sense - in a good way. Brink which used to be cheap, then was $89.95, can now be bought on Steam at $59.95, with an additional strategy guide. Hurry up folks - before they change their mind!
