After a couple months on hiatus, our <a href="http://brinkthegame.com/community/blogs/detail/?id=6">developer diaries for Brink return</a>. This week Splash Damage's audio director, Chris Sweetman, discusses his methodology for Brink's sound design -- covering everything from foley work to getting the perfect gun sound. And oh does Chris love gun sounds. If you've ever played the game BLACK (a game he previously worked on), you know you're in for a treat with Brink.

Chris' <a href="http://brinkthegame.com/community/blogs/detail/?id=6">dev diary</a> is accompanied by an arrangement he calls, "A Choir of Guns." Watch it above.

Over the past few months, we've shared videos from the <a href="http://www.parkourtour.com/video-episodes">Beyond the Brink: 2010 European Parkour Tour</a>, featuring freerunning expert Daniel Ilabaca. If you haven't checked out the videos, we think you should -- they're pretty rad. Above, I've posted some crazy action from the tour's stop in Barcelona.

With Fallout: New Vegas at last reaching store shelves, and the vice-grip of Fallout addicts everywhere, it's time to see what the equally-ensnared press thought of the game.

Here is a pretty vast collection of New Vegas reviews we've seen so far. We'll of course add to the list as more start to pop up.

<a href="http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2010-10-19-fallout-new-vegas-review">Eurogamer</a> <strong>(9/10)</strong>: "New Vegas may jump across America for its setting, and forward several years in the timeline, but it's a seamless continuation of what Bethesda set in motion in 2008 with Fallout 3."

<a href="http://www.gamepro.com/article/reviews/216971/fallout-new-vegas">GamePro</a> <strong>(4.5/5)</strong>: "It closely matches Fallout 3 in terms of depth and content; if you loved the original, you'll probably love this one as well."

<span style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.oxm.co.uk/article.php?id=23028">Official Xbox Magazine UK</a> <strong>(9/10)</strong>: </span><span class="text_article_body">"All you have to do is listen to the post-game chatter of those that have played it and you'll learn that, sure enough, Obsidian has created something that's consistent yet unpredictable enough that everyone's adventure feels like it's something unique and worth sharing."</span>

<a href="http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/112/1128811p1.html">IGN UK</a> <strong>(9/10)</strong>: "Like 3 and Oblivion before it, New Vegas is a game to share stories about, one that lets you carve your own path through a beautifully constructed world."

<span style="text-align: justify;"><a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/gamesblog/2010/oct/19/fallout-new-vegas-review?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter">The Guardian</a> <strong>(5/5)</strong>: "</span>Writing this review has been difficult simply because I've been itching to strap on my Pipboy, get back to the wasteland and do a bit more exploring – there's nothing quite like it. I think you'll feel the same."
