CVG previews Brutal Legend - The most tenacious action game yet

Two worlds are colliding. Two wayward minds that only want to rock are crashing together to create one of next year's hottest new games. The brain-boxes behind Monkey Island and Tenacious D are hi-fiving, pumping fists and scribbling on bits of paper to conjure up PS3's 'next big thing'.

The creative juices are being supplied by maverick coder Tim Schafer and rock funny man Jack Black. The game is Brutal Legend, an adventure set in the mythical lost era of Heavy Metal. Those two sentences should have put a smile across your face bigger than a Metallica riff. Schafer is best known for his comedy writing on Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle and Grim Fandango, games that are genuinely funny, which is rare. Jack Black is Hollywood's Golden Boy, the man who would be king (of rock) and more importantly, made hair metal cool again. Together, they are creating worlds.

This could be fun.

This game is going to be the sleeper hit of next year among all of those heavy hitters. I just hope it doesn't get commercially looked over like Psychonauts did.

Oh it's Tim Schafer!!! This game'll probably be completely awesome


Here's another title for me to wait for, Why did they say it was PS3's next big thing though? Like it's an exclusive, I wish it was, but I clearly remember this being multi-platform. As a matter of fact, when they first started talking about this game, I thought it was 360 exclusive.

I would have picked up a 360 for this game, this and Ninja Gaiden 2 and Gears, would have been enuff for me to take the plunge.

Alas, Not anymore.

Sorry, I digress.

Great looking Game

Nah it's always been multiplatform. I must say one thing though, GTAIV has some STRONG open world competition next year.
