Asia Shippin' Out May 8-14: Brink

New release slate led by Splash Damage's new multiplayer shooter and new entry in Lego video game series.

by

While last week was filled with Norse mythology, bullet hell, and zombie killings, players will have their hands filled with team-based shooting in a flooded Earth, some hack-and-slash in a medieval time, and block breaking in a pirate-heavy universe. Brink leads the charge and will be out for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. The first-person shooter has the Resistance and Security factions fighting it out in a floating city called The Ark. The game lets players either take the fight online with other players or play through the single-player mode with bots. Brink's main feature is the SMART (smooth movement across random terrain) System, which allows for smooth navigation without any tricky inputs. Brink will be on local shelves tomorrow.

Up next is The First Templar for both the PC and Xbox 360. This action role-playing game tells the story of a French Templar knight and his quest to uncover an overarching conspiracy within the Templar Order. The game features multiplayer co-op modes and a single-player campaign that gives players the opportunity to switch between two different characters with varied play styles. Gamers can look forward to traversing in the Dark Ages tomorrow.

Capping off this week is the Lego-fied iteration of Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean. This action title includes the swashbuckling pirate-laced essence from the famous trilogy of movies while also putting in the all-ages charm of the Lego video game franchises players can find in the Lego Star Wars and Lego Indiana Jones games. Lego Pirates of the Caribbean will be out tomorrow and will be on all major consoles.

@gfhgbgfdh I have a gaming laptop powered by Nvidia 1GB ram that runs everything I want, but man.. PC online gaming don't live up to the fun we experience on console servers. Besides I don't know how to play with a mouse! :P

@Yathoom That is just one of the reasons I love the PC nothing but the internet itself going down can rob you of all multiplayer fun. I do feel sorry for you PS3 people though, it must suck big time :( Anyway personally I cannot wait for Brink, a game where I can merge my love of Parkour(I am a traceur) and love of FPSs has to be good :D
