I would have liked to see them use their free running mechanics more, speed up the pace of the game and give players more opportunity to use the terrain - as it is it looks like just another objective based FPS (which, to be fair, they should be good at, considering they did pioneer the whole objective-based multiplayer gameplay that is all the rage at the moment).

Augh, they need better animators for the in-game stuff.  The weapon bob is really crap even when walking around, and it stays out in front even when they are supposed to be running.  What I've seen of their free-running mechanics looks pretty awful.  They don't seem to take physics into account, for example running and catching an open ledge with your hands would cause you to swing up under the ledge and probably lose your grip and fall off.

I would love more freedom of movement in games, but this feels like someone's said "oh hey, what's hip and fresh and phat at the moment - wait, that's still what kids say right?  phat?  anyway, what's cool right now?  free running?  yeah, like Mirror's Edge huh?  ok, let's go with that.  Man, good work today guys.  Get that down to the dev guys and let's break out the coke"

It's just that seeing as it's a big part of their hype for the game I'd expect them to have implemented it in a less tacked-on fashion.  It looks kind of dumb as is in the promo footage I've seen, with every fucker jumping off walls and over fallen shit and promptly getting shot in the face.  The one thing where the guy does some sort of wall run flip thing to dodge a rocket is pretty funny, because he puts all this effort into what should be a simple side-step, then gets shot afterward anyway I think.

The pre-rendered trailer where the deaths of the people being followed is used to showcase the character creation/customization features, and is probably not all that indicative of how the free-running system will be used in the game?

Being able to move vertically in a fps environment sounds fun. The whole thing looks like fun. Cover has already been covered (hah!) in a lot of games, but there's not many where you can climb over the enemy cover, or have people climbing over your cover, or stuff like that. I love the maps in TF2 where there's a lot of vertical variety - cp Badlands allows for much fun in that variety.

I'll definitely try out the demo.

See I don't really give a shit about physics details especially if there's adequate suspension of disbelief created by the art style or the gameplay or whatever. I didn't give a damn that, in Just Cause 2, Rico could safely land a base jump by shooting his grappling hook toward the ground and making himself move even faster. It just happened naturally. I accepted it. In real life it would jellify his legs.

I was literally thinking specifically of Just Cause 2 when I made this post but I was a bit loath to mention it because "style" and "substance" are so messily intertwined in that game that you could spend 5 forevers trying to unravel them so it's probably best just to dodge it altogether

That trailer looked really stupid. It was just a long chain of random dudes running around and getting shot. I was glad to see the big guy crushed under a tank because he was a gangsta idiot, standing out in the open and shooting guns sideways, but really the main difference between him and every other idiot was that the camera didn't first follow him around a stylish obstacle course before he bit it.

That doesn't necessarily mean I think the game will be bad, because really that's what any multiplayer FPS is, a bunch of people running around in a big hurry to get shot, but it sure looks ridiculous in a trailer.

Also, I should ask my buddies at Bethesda if they worked on this game. I don't know if that company is big enough to have multiple projects going on simultaneously, or if it's all hands on deck for every title.

Joe, have you seen the gameplay videos? That'd be a much better tool to see if you'd like the game or not (then again, I thought the CG trailer was awesome, so who knows).
Anyway, I think it looks pretty fun. Lots of varried objectives to tackle (or ignore), good class/weapon options, and fucking freerunning.

Pretty sure it'll be a day one for me, depending on my budget.

lots of videos here:

Brink looks pretty interesting.  I work at a GameStop, so I've got a lot of promo materials to look over (mostly so I can pitch the game well to customers).  From what I'm reading, the freerunning stuff is tied to what they're calling the SMART button; whatever button it's mapped to, it's how you interact with the environment when you choose.  So outside of using that tactic, the action is similar to most other FPS titles.  I dig the visual aesthetic I've seen so far, and while it doesn't really appeal to what I look for in the game, what I've heard about how crazy detailed the character customization is I find impressive.  The thing that sort of worries me is the big leap they're taking in gametype mechanics.  The character you make can be used in single player, co-op, and multiplayer, all adding towards the same experience level (making me think they're probably going towards a MW2/Black Ops thing, where leveling up gets you new weapons/abilities/whatever).  Beyond that, though, they're making transitions from one game mode to another completely seamless.  I honestly have no idea how it's going to be done, and I feel like it's going to make my head spin.  The learning curve there is going to be huge, I think, but if it works, it feels like it could be one of the new staples for future multiplayer FPSs.

I really like Bethesda, and I'm impressed with the previous work Splash Damage has done, so I feel pretty confident about this one.

You got me there.

Funny, because I have absolutely no idea why L.A. Noire should be worth my time or money

The thread's about Brink, so I'll try to be brief here.  Rockstar's making LA Noire.  Sandbox game in 1947 L.A. where you play as a cop, starting out on traffic detail, working your way up to detective work (homicide, etc). Case work is really, really in-depth; you work it completely start to finish.  They're using a brand new type of mo-cap for the game, which creates the difficulty of part of the detective work.  This mo-cap is a complete 1:1 transfer of movement; the characters are actually acting.  Part of the awesome factor there is the depth of interrogating suspects/witnesses, to the point of having to watch facial features to tell when someone is lying.  If I had the money, I'd already have it paid off.  Looking forward to it so hard.

I know what L.A Noire is and is about.  :-P Detective games don't feel as new to me as others seem to approach it, even if it is a detective game with insanely nice facial animations (which, iirc other games like Yakuza or The Force Unleashed have touted in the past) and a neat use for it.

First part: they actually have the voice actors faces mapped while they say the lines, it is more like a movie's CGI effects than video game animation. It looks cool and I wish I could get it.

Second part: By the time Aussies start playing there will already be someone at max level in the n hemisphere.
