In light of the PSN being down and the rumor well going back and forth on whether’s Sony’s stuff was up to snuff, the simple fact is: there are still video games that could rock for all systems. And the one we think might hit that decent and up category for this week is:
Brink – 360, PC, PS3
Developed by Splash Damage, who did the multipalyer content for the PC versions of Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Dooms 3, and published by Bethesda Softworks. Brink is a FPS similar to Team Fortress but uses a parkour style of gameplay movement. PC version has Steamworks.
Featuring John “MusiM” Beauchamp, John “Knobs” Knoblach, and Michael “Boston” Hannon.
