    First scans here!

    Jack Black playing the protaganist. Very similar to Full Throttle in style mixed with fantasy/Grim Fandango weirdness.

    Other "rock persons" to take on different roles. Soundtrack from proper band a la Full Throttle.

    Xbox 360/PS3 only atm.

    All looking very good so far!

    That looks pretty amusing - and very Full Throttle, yeah.

    What is it, exactly? :-D

    Well, it is being described as a 3D action adventure with RPG elements. So I guess that covers all angles!

    Expect upgradable guitar/axe weapons along with an awesome rock soundtrack.

    Tim Schafer can do no wrong. End.

    I was going to ask a mod to amend the thread title to include the correct spelling but... meh ;o)

    Fuck yes.

    FUCK YES.

    Shame they had to rip off a Shitweasel from Dreamcatcher though. Tut tut. Then again Halo 3 did the same...

    Don't know what to think of the game. So is it going to be a hack n slash game? (I heard rumours of Multiplayer as well)

    But? Hack n Slash? That's not an adventure game.

    Neither was Psychonauts, but that didn't stop it from being delicious as milk.

    Well, it is possible that, seeing as the game is intended to be pronounced as "brutal legend", that the OP was merely helpfully correctting the developers' spelling mistake.

    :p

    It's the heavy metal umlaut! It's not supposed to be pronounced properly :)

    Muhrtley Crueh? No, it's pronounce Motley Crew. The umlauts just make it look metal, they're not actual diacritics, sheesh!

    The Game Informer story is well worth reading if you find scans of it somewhere.

    A big old preview! \m/

    Edit: Heh heh!

    Unwittingly, Eddie gets transported back in time to the mythical Age of Metal courtesy of an unusual horned belt buckle imbued with an ancient curse. The world Schafer has created for his new hero is built from the clichés of rock - there are giant swords protruding from the ground, Iron Maiden Beasts roam the wastelands and everyone rides Harleys and drives hotrods. It's a proper world of rock, expect to see the pillars from Led Zeppelin's Houses of the Holy album cover, Meat Loaf's Bat Out of Hell gets a look in and you won't need to go far to see a nod or two to Dio's fantastical landscapes.

    This is a world where volcanoes spew hot molten chrome, mountains are made from amps and V8 engines are mined like diamonds. Schafer is keen to point out that rock fans will be able to see all the icons of their beloved music in this world. The game world is immersed in references, be it an actual stairway to heaven or the apocalyptic visions from damp demin stalwarts Manowar, Over Kill and Hammerfall; and all of the other metal greats that illustrated their thunderclap visions with busty women, demonic skulls and chrome war machines. Heavy metal is rife with imagery and in Schafer's hands has inspired a richer game world.

    Well, that rather depends on how much you've had to drink now, doesn't it?

    A couple of new screens on the official site, they don't reveal much but worth a look.

    Also use the mousewheel on the site :)

    Ok I thought that the proper game thread should get a bump with the new trailer from the Spike VGAs.

    Can't wait for 'fall' 2009 now \o/

    This thread does not have enough posts in it considering this is a Tim Schafer game featuring Jack Black.

    Love Tim Schafer's stuff though. Oh my, yes.

    Yes, for we live in a democratic forum. Although people may throw their shoes at you.

    Fair enough, I like Jack Black in Tenacious D but not any of his other stuff, hopefully becuase this is written by Schafer Jack Black will be pretty good (or at least bareable)

    Well that trailer was uninspiring, generic hack and slasher with tacked on driving sections.
    And this is the game everyone's excited about?

    Careful what you say, we don't like your kind 'round 'ere.

    But seriously on the face of it, it may look generic and maybe the combat will be but the game will be brillantly designed and written.

    I presume you've not played Psychonauts?

    I tried to play it on my pc but it doesn't scale at all well for pc's wthout dedicated graphics cards and was juttery as hell so I didn't bother going much further then the first level.

    Still I liked how colourful and unique it looked. This on the other hand looks gloomy and generic like everyother game out right now.
