News Bethesda: PlayStation 3 Fans Can Still Enjoy Brink Without The PSN
Let's be honest, Brink is a game all about online multiplayer

News Brink Launch Trailer Shoots Up The 'Net, Out This Week
Brink looks awesome, and it's out this week

Any trailer -- be it for a movie or video game -- is more exciting when the sound engineers go crazy with their sub-woofers

News Splash Damage Want To Change Your Mind Regarding Multiplayer
We're not huge multiplayer gamers
We enjoy it, but we're not the type of people who can make a game's multiplayer mode last a year or two. That's just, meh.
