We hope everyone had an enjoyable few days off - what better way to get back into things than this calorie-free Brink coverage round-up?
First up are our friends at IncGamers, who have put together a slick video interview with Splash Damage head and Brink Game Director Paul 'Locki' Wedgwood, Creative Director Richard 'Rahdo' Ham, and Lead Writer Ed 'BongBoy' Stern. The three of them discuss Splash Damage's early years, teaming up with Bethesda, Brink, and interactive ice cream (chances are it's not what you think).
Meanwhile, If Men Had Wings has a new written interview with Richard Ham, stuffed with interestings things like the importance of online avatars in today's games, how SMART differs from previous free running efforts in games, and how AI teammates will fit into Brink's big picture.
Rounding things out on the coverage side today are Machinima.com, where a new video preview cunningly combines all manner of (previously released) Brink footage with fun facts about the game, and Girl Gamers UK, which sports a nicely written preview summarising Brink’s major features.
Lastly, if you're feeling lucky / sweepstakey, don't forget that you can win a top of the line home theatre system over at GameStop (US only) as well as loads of Brink posters over at Bethblog.
