Title: Brutal Legends Posted: October 09, 2009 (01:03 PM)
Just played the demo a few days ago at a friend's house, it looks pretty damn good, plus Tim Schaffer is a bloody genius that tries to battle those God damn windmills still with actually good games in the sea of Halo's/Gears of War style games with just a dash of Madden's. The premise looks good, I actually like Jack Black and find him amusing, and the music is for the most part, recognisable. The gameplay seems fluid and good from what I saw in the trailer and has that Schaffer magic to it.
Let's just hope this won't be another Psychonauts, yet another brilliant game that was drowned due to poor advertising and people being philistines.
Also, a video:

Meh, I didn't care for the demo. Schafer usually makes fantastic premises mixed with mediocre games and I couldn't even get into the premise here. The jokes for the most part fell flat and it just wasn't as witty and creative as usual. Too many cliche rock jokes.
I'll get it when it's down to 20 bucks.

I was happy to see BL announced (about a year ago) but I do think developers announce games too soon these days. The wowness factor has already worn off for me. It will probably be sweet, though.

I'm a huge fan of Jack Black and he alone sold me on this game, but when I played the demo and "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" blared in the background while I slayed demons with an axe/guitar shoved this into the "must have" category.

I actually agree wizh Zipp on the announcing thing. It's a problem, because people either expect too much, or even worse see too much of the game from various previews/beta tests/interviews. I remember when FFX was announced one of my chums spent a good portion of a year just watching everything he could find on the subject. When the actual game came out he already knew everything that would happen throughout the game.
But yeah, I have high hopes for the game, which I should know not to have with so many years of playing various games. It's a curse when Tim "I am probably God" Schaffer is involved.
