I think you should go play the demo yourself for that. Last time I checked, commentary for Quick Looks wasn't new.

No, it's not new. Did I say it was new?
 
But when they talk over things like meeting the girl, which they did, I dunno what the hell is going on/who she is.
 
And you're not very smart suggesting that I should play the demo for myself considering the demo isn't out yet.
 
Blah blah blah Ryan, Jeff, Brad and Vinny are the anointed ones and they deserve absolutely no criticism, how dare I, etc. etc.

Yay more Brutal Legend -  can't wait to play this one!  That menu design is slick as hell - thank god some game developers put style and substance together and actually care about the details of their game, like the menus.

You're acting like it's new. Bitching about the staff commenting in a Quick Look? Have you done this for every Quick Look? 
 
And I am smart, because you can play the demo when it gets released, which should be in the next few days. Is that too long to wait? Ryan, Jeff, Brad, and Vinny aren't the anointed ones, you're just being a retarded douchebag. Now go fuck yourself, go fuck your mom, and oh yea, go fuck the hell off, you worthless piece of shit.

This entire portion of the game was already shown in a previous video with Schafer doing the commentary. So if you want to hear what the characters say, you can! :)

This quote tree isn't metal at all.  What is wrong with you guys.
Posted by RHCPfan24

This game looks so great. The design and aesthetic is a reason to buy it and play it alone.

I'm not feeling the story from what I saw in the QL.  He dies and then he somehow ends up in that Hell.  No explanation is given as to why his accessory/stage awakened the demon who apparently resurrected him.  No reason as to where he is when he wakes up.  Granted, that stuff will hopefully be explained later in the story.
 
But the first thing Eddie does when he wakes up is jump off a high platform on to another to tell demon monks that he's not their master.  Going from real world physics, I don't think anyone would jump off a platform like that.  He also immediately supposes that the monks are talking about him.  He did not seem confused in the least and that bothers me.
 
The girl seems to fall in love with Eddie rather quicly (too quickly).  He decides to build a car out of 
conveniently placed materials in the area.  How exactly would one think to do that?  He even talks as if he's owned that car for a long time.  He prays on the transport that the demon monk lady was riding on to make it move.  How did he think of that?
 
I dunno, it seems there's a lot of stuff that are vague or not explained well.  But I guess it's not too important in Brütal Legend's case because the whole story is just to awesomely show heavy metal related stuff.

YES AMPED 3 REFERENCE!  That was awesome Ryan.

That intro was the shit.

Posted by Kinggi

Some of the jokes fall flat, but all is forgiven since it is so badass and the gameplay looks like a lot of fun.

Posted by ImHungryx10
@FluxWaveZ: I think you are thinking too much into it. Eddie can make stuff 'cause he's a the best roadie ever. And who needs explanation when you can bring the thunder of the gods dow with your mighty ax!...and other ax...
Edited by Spacetrucking

C'mon guys! Thats Rob Halford from Judas Priest doing the "Double Fiiiiiiine" intro. If I'm not mistaken, he also voices the main villian in the game (guy with an excessive hairdo).
 
Also, the intro/menu song is by Judas Priest so nice continuity there :p

Posted by Catarrhal

That was Jack Black singing "Double Fine!" (at the very beginning of the video); they seriously couldn't recognize his voice?

Posted by Catarrhal
@Killjoy: We seem to have posted at the same time, but I'm going to have to apologize. Sir, you are utterly incorrect. Jack Black is a very capable vocalist, but he is no Halford. Either you've not listened to Judas Priest, or you've not listened to Tenacious D, or both…
Posted by mrwolf710

Wow, totally fucking sold on this game now.  I know it's got all that RTSy kind of stuff too but the writing, the fighting - it all seems to be awesome so far.  Can't wait.

Actually I'm pretty sure that wasn't Jack Black. Jack Black does have a random voice clip there (which is clearly him), and that's not it.

@FluxWaveZ: are these complaints real?  you can't expect them to explain the entire plot in the demo, and who says the girl has fallen in love with him? there's not much to suggest that
 
it's not like all he had to build the car was a pile of scrap metal, he basically summoned a model kit and just snapped it all together
 
and there are many games that are guilty of far more obscene abuses of physics than him hopping off an altar... Mario jumps several times his own height... nobody complains about that

@Catarrhal: I don't know dude...I heard the distinct Halford note in there. Either its him or Jack Black doing a very good impersonation.

Yes, those complaints are real.  And you're negating a bunch of stuff I said.  First off, I should have said that I hope they cut off some cutscenes and story elements from the demo.  If they did not and that's how it is in the full game, I think it's way too rushed.  Second off, I said "The girl seems to fall in love with Eddie rather quickly (too quickly)."  Third off, how exactly did he get the idea of summoning car parts?  He just came from the real world and awakened in a different one.  One would only get those type of ideas and be able to make it happen if they were in some lucid dream (kind of like Shark Boy & Lava Girl).  Mario is not ever depicted as realistic.  He is not seen in the beginning of the game in the real world.  Eddie Riggs was just at a rock concert, somking a cigarette and therefore sets the concept of him being a roadie from the real world who got transported to an unreal one.  Maybe that could mean that he can now do "unreal" things, but since that's the case, they did not explain well enough how he discovers that he has gained those powers.

I know it was not.  I'm not really interested in it, either.  But that does not mean the plot could not be made better.  Or maybe it does.  Maybe most of those who are interested in this don't care about plot or story, they just care about concept and gameplay.  Or maybe just concept.

Ok, So i was really hating this game because I dont like Jack Black much, but Jennifer Hale is in this game and she is in everything good, so I may give it a chance.

@FluxWaveZ:  Most of that will almost certainly be explained a later in the game. (In fact we already know a number of those things are explained later.) Seriously, not every game pounds you over the head with explanations of every plot detail as soon as it starts. 
 
And this game is not trying to be "real", at all. It doesn't matter if the game started out in the "real world", this game is purposely completely over the top in everything it does. That's the point.  If you're trying to add real world logic to this game you're completely missing the point of the game.

That's exactly why I said "Granted, that stuff will hopefully be explained later in the game."  What I am saying is that Eddie Riggs knows exactly what he's doing even though he just came into the hellish world.  An explanation for that later in the story is most likely not going to be given.  It's just something like "He's that awesome."
 
And, for your second paragraph, that's exactly why I said: "But I guess it's not too important in Brütal Legend's case because the whole story is just to awesomely show heavy metal related stuff."
Edited by Zeik
@FluxWaveZ: The point is that stuff like him knowing exactly what to do doesn't need to be explained. He's an awesome roadie, that's as much explanation as is needed in a game like this. Some kind of expository explanation as to why he can do that would actually just take away from the experience.
Posted by FluxWaveZ
@Zeik said:
" @FluxWaveZ: that's as much explanation as is needed in a game like this. "
Yeah, that's the essential part; "a game like this".  I just love stories in video games and that's why it somewhat irritates me to see it skipped about like that.  But I think it's what you touched on.  It's mainly because of this game's particular concept: Heavy Metal.  It's basically a tribute to the music and to fans of that genre of music and that's why the story does not need to be deep or intriguing.
Edited by Zeik
@FluxWaveZ: I love stories in game's myself, and in fact the "story" is one the things that I'm looking forward to most about this game. However there are different types of storytelling. This game obviously isn't aiming for a deep and meaningful trek through the life of a roadie, nor should it do that. It's an over the top heavy metal themed game with a heavy dose of humor. That obviously lends itself to a different type of storytelling, where heavy exposition or even a sense of "realism" is not necessary to tell an entertaining story.

Dude are you serious? Its a videogame. Grow down.  
 
Also I feel I can explain some of that stuff, firstly they hint not very subtly that Eddie is some sort of reincarnation of some metal god or something along those lines because he wields the axe so easily and skillfully without any previous experience. The girl also comments on this but they are interrupted before they have time to talk about it more. No doubt thats what it will be though. 
 
Actually I just thought of more evidence, He is also the only person who can read the ancient scripture on the walls (for summoning the car parts), Tim Schafer mentioned that when we did a talkthrough of this demo a month or 2 ago. And because he is the main character of the game, there is also a very high % chance of him being super special right? So thats why. 
 
Tim also says that the ancient rock gods put the plans to build the ancient weapons of the Gods in musical form around the world, but nobody can read them except for Eddie.
 
As for the girl falling for him quickly, his is a big strapping man helping and saving her, plus its probably part of the him being special thing, and its a videogame.. so everyone gets attached to the main character fast.
 
OHH, and the reason he died and went to the crazy metal world is because his belt buckle was actually an ancient talisman or something of the like that summoned the metal god of time when his blood got on it. Tim said that too.
 
So really, why are you talking on giantbomb, a videogame website, about a videogame not being real life? That makes no sense! They aren't going to give you all the story in a demo? thatd be fucking retarded. The idea is to show off the gameplay some, intro you to the character and get you hooked. If you want the story, play the game? Of course they are going to answer your plot questions in the game in some way.
 
And watching the video of this demo with Tim Schafer talking about whats going on is a big help too. Check that out.
Posted by FluxWaveZ
@Zeik: Yeah, that's also true.  I guess playing Metal Gear, Persona and Half-Life games recently has just made me expect that type of story from a game.  Not to say I would not be interested in that type of story; because i am.  Maybe I should play through this game just to see how it's story is executed.

But man! Mario isn't real. Everyone here knows that Brutal Legend is a real life sim, and thats why they are so mad to see it deviate slightly from its original concept! :P
