Newest trailer is out. Wonder if it will come to the PC? Makes me think Full Throttle for some reason.

So it is a third person action/adventure like God of War?  I get no clear sense of the type of game.  Or is it more like Psyconauts where the gameplay is just a side piece to the story and jokes? (not a bad thing)

new footage of Brutal Legend courtesy of IGN...15 minutes of gameplay from the beginning of the game, with commentary by Tim Schafer...

Part One
Part Two

if the gameplay can live up to the awesome setting, characters, and storytelling that we've seen so far, this should be one totally bitchin' game

HD walkthrough pt 2

With Ozzy smile Oh and about it  being buried when released..I would have thought that once but the more I see of it the more I think it will be a pretty big hit. I still hope it sees the PC though. I would buy it right up.

This game will need a Surgeon General Warning on it because of how much old-school head-banging action you'll be doing. biggrin

funny you should say that...got the info from Joystiq.com, and their line was that is should carry a warning for causing a 'terrible case of face melting'

That's only if you pre-ordered from Gamestop  thumbsdown They got the exclusive .... again. I'm sick of this "exclusive" bullshit.

A demo should not be a consumer reward, it should be a demonstration (and thus a marketing tool) freely available to all upon release.

i've official cut myself off from watching any more footage or playing the demo for Brutal Legend.  the opening cinematic is public now, but i've decided not to watch.  it's pretty much a given at this point that i'm picking up the game, so i've decided to save any more surprises for when i'm able to play for real icon_cool

Yeah, I've done the same.  Hell, I've only read one preview.  They pretty much just needed to tell me that Tim Schaefer was doing it, and they had a sale.  While I dislike that they're using the demo as a preorder incentive, it doesn't actually affect me, because I won't be playing the demo.  biggrin

well, i got a new code that actually worked, & just finished the demo. pretty silly stuff - not quite as ingenious a premise as grim fandango or psychonauts, but i'm willing to cut tim schaefer tons of slack, & it definitely looks like it could be a lot more commercially successful than psychonauts, which he deserves. graphics & gameplay (from what i saw) are a bit crude, but definitely fun - looking forward to the real deal smile ...

The demo's fantastic.  Great humor, great graphics, a nice tutorial system, and the theming is perfect.  I don't like metal as a musical genre, but I certainly appreciate giant towering edifices built from skeletons, battle nuns, and axes.  I think the demo has convinced me to be IN for the final product.

Don't know why, but I'm not even remotely interested in this.  And I was big into heavy metal in the 80's.  Maybe it's Jack Black, who irritates me.  I'm going to make a prediction that this game will suck, or at least not live up to the hype.

I predict your prediction is WAY off.  I can't tell if it will sell or not, but I just finished the demo, and it is awesome.

Like Brendan, I'm not much into heavy metal.  My love for Schaefer is the only thing that peaked my interest, but that was counter with the music.  I just feared it would turn me off.  Quite the opposite happened.  The way the game embraces metal, through the world and characters comes through.  Everything about this demo just screams entertaining, from the animation to the story, from the enemies to the attacks, from the freaking menu straight down to what may have been my favorite part:
Spoiler for Hiden:
the language/gore settings.

i don't know - i'm not into either metal or jack black, but this game works really well - 11 on the dumb fun scale smile ...

I'm not into metal at all, and my only interest in Jack Black is that he looks like me, but I'm really looking forward to this game. On the other hand, since this game will be out at the same time as Uncharted 2 it won't get any playtime until that game is done. smile

Fun demo. I wasn't all that interested in it but now I think I'll pick it up on release day. The menu is brilliantly done, I dig the sense of humour, and the fighting and driving were fun. I enjoyed KISS Psycho Circus, so stands to reason I'd like this too.

Went home for lunch and downloaded/played the demo.

I'm in.

Oh and Ike, I saw in another post that you just turned 42.  Well, I'm 43 and like you was into heavy metal in the 80's (still am for that matter).  You should at least give the demo a try.  I can take/leave Jack Black in most cases but he is eminently suited for this role.
