    Was that intro well advised after the launch of BRINK?

    I think the should have started that bit with “After BRINK Splash Damage found out that…”

    Anyhoo, it does look more interesting than the last video I saw. Their damage model is perhaps on the high side (in terms of the amount of damage you have to deal for a kill). I’ve nothing against higher damage models, but bullet sponge models aren’t the greatest.

    But I’d rather have a slightly more spongy experience than the way COD plays.

    Yeah, bulletsponges are for the birds. If you mess up in an online game, it should cost you.

    @2, yeah, maybe, but we’re talking extremes of the spectrum here.

    I think BC2 is very balanced in terms of sponginess. You can kill enemy relatively quickly but if you noob there is no way that would kill somebody fast
