    "You know, that demon nun is kinda sexy..."
    Brütal Legend has been a long time coming--so long now that I was getting a little worried whether Tim Schafer's rock opus would still play or not by the time it finally trudges to shelves. A lot has happened since the game's production began four years ago, you know? Guitar Hero went from brave-little-rock-game-that-could to annualized corporate institution. Ozzy Osbourne and his lovely family are hosting a deplorable variety hour these days on Fox. Rock defender Jack Black's unending schtick has been threatening to turn the guy into a self-parody for a while now. Is it really still cool to be way into heavy metal? Can you actually get away with that in 2009?

    Here's the good news: Brütal Legend's stalwart devotion to skulls, chains, leather, the devil, chicks with big boobs--all things metal, you know--is not cliched or predictable. It's funny and creative, thanks to Schafer's finely honed script. Black's role in the game (at least what I heard of it) is not overwrought, grating, or played out. He really fits. Even if you think you're totally over metal these days--or you hated it to start with--you will be hard pressed not to throw the horns in the air to the major beats of Brütal Legend's headbanging hilarity.

    Here's the bonus good news: Brütal Legend also looks like a game I actually want to play, not just laugh at.

    The stirrings of revolution.
    The stirrings of revolution.
    The first few minutes of the demo we saw at Double Fine didn't paint the game that way. But looking back, I can't help wondering if Schafer was playing a trick on us, sitting off to the side and going "Just you wait" with a big grin on his face. About five minutes in, I'd have told you Brütal Legend was a run-of-the-mill, linear third-person combat game, God of War with an axe and an, uh, axe (the other kind). I knew it was a safe bet the game would be legitimately funny and charming, but truthfully that wasn't going to be enough to convince me to play it in the absence of some more interesting game mechanics.

    Good thing Brütal Legend is nothing like that! But I'll get to the gameplay in a minute.

    The game is about Black's character Eddie Riggs, a rock roadie whose grotesque belt buckle happens to be shaped in the image of the ancient god Ormagöden. The buckle tastes blood during an unfortunate backstage mishap and immediately transports Eddie to a world of black metallic humor--mountains made of skulls, demonic battle nuns, and an evil emperor named Doviculus, oppressing the good rock-loving citizens of the land.

    Armed only with his battle axe the Separator and his guitar Clementine, Eddie wastes no time hooking up with a raven-haired vixen named Ophelia, slaying a few dozen evil druid minions, and hightailing it to Bladehenge, the center of the human resistance led by Nordic-looking siblings Lars and Lita Halford. Yes, there are at least half a dozen prominent metal references in the last two paragraphs. It's that thick.

    Totally cherry. Pretty nice car, too.
    Totally cherry. Pretty nice car, too.
    By the time you reach Bladehenge, you'll have crafted the Deuce, also known as the Druid Plow, a screaming hot rod forged by dark magics from ancient, fossilized carburetors and chassis. The Deuce looks totally cherry and rather boss, but more importantly it also acts as your main mode of transportation, because--surprise!--Brütal Legend is an open-world game. It's got around two dozen story-related missions and numerous side quests, races, and other activities to undertake while you roam the land. Expect plenty of funny hidden secrets as well, such as some primitive-looking graffiti hiding under a natural overpass. And yes, the Deuce has a radio that will stream metal classics new and old, more of which you can find hidden across the landscape.

    The only story mission we got to see centered around Eddie's need to build an army that could defeat Doviculus. He set out to the mines controlled by General Lionwhyte, Doviculus' human lackey voiced by none other than Judas Priest's Rob Halford. The poor boneheads toiling there were forced to continually smash ore by banging their own bare ponderous noggins into the rock, while Lionwhyte screeched corporate motivational slogans at them from nearby loudspeakers. Eddie was quickly able to convince the tattooed, cap-wearing headbangers to join his cause with the power of metal. Their bandana-wearing, frosted-tipped glam counterparts, however, snidely chose to remain in servitude.

    The eternal battle between heavy metal and glam rock will be one of the game's central humorous focal points, Schafer said. He seems to have a deeply personal bias toward this particular issue, and it's clear the glam guys are going to get the short end of the stick.

    Headbangers unite!
    Headbangers unite!
    Anyway, once Eddie had won the metalheads over to his cause, Schafer showed off the last aspect of Brütal Legend's gameplay for the demo, which is a minion-command system not unlike what you've seen in Overlord. Except I'd feel safer with a bunch of aggro headbangers getting my back than some piddly little gremlins. While you're doing your own slaying and shredding against enemies, you can also order groups of your allies around to attack and defend at various places on the map. Since you'll be able to amass at least a dozen followers, you'd think the battles--and the strategy--may become suitably epic later in the game.

    There's plenty more to find out about Brütal Legend before EA's targeted release window of "fall 2009." Next up on the list: Some sort of button-based guitar-playing mechanic that will let you cast rock spells. The full voiceover cast (metal names like Halford, Lemmy Kilmister, and Lita Ford are already confirmed). A finalized soundtrack listing. And details on the headbanger-to-headbanger multiplayer mode, which will put you in command of an army against other players' own metal legions.

    But I've seen enough to know I'm totally stoked already. Let him who hath understanding reckon the might of Tim Schafer. He and Double Fine may have just rescued heavy metal from the brink of cheesy irrelevance with a smart combination of Schafer's brilliant humor and a melding of modern gaming styles. Come fall, I hope we all have an earnest reason to bang our heads once more.


    If you've forgotten, here's the teaser for the game from the Spike TV Video Game Awards. Quite a bit of the footage you see here is what I saw in my demo, which means it's all from the very early parts of the game.

    Of course it's awesome, it's by Tim Schafer.

    By the way, anyone notice the nod to Grim Fandango?
    It's got the same hotrod.
    If only we had Glottis to drive it.

    I don't like metal either, but this game is looking great. I'm sure Tim will not disappoint. I'm just hoping for a PC release, else I can't play it.

    IGN already gave this game a low score, which i thought was predictable considering the fact that Jack Black is in it.

    Not completley sure if the hotrod is a nod to Grim Fandango.  It looks similar with the flames and the big exhaust pipes, but it isn't exactly the same.  


    But how cool would it be if  you met Glottis there?  I mean he is a demon, so there is a pretty good chance he can.  But Lucasarts may have the "rights" to his character.  Either way this looks like another aweseome game from Tim Schafer!

    I was unfamiliar with Tim Schafer until Psychonauts, but that was one of my favorite PS2 games.
    I don't doubt this game is gonna be good, but HOW good is up in the air.

    If for no other reason than a Full Throttle reference, songs from The Gone Jackals.  At the very least, "Legacy" should be in this game.  Hidden (and not so hidden) references to Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle and Grim Fandango would also be cool.

    Still, it's Schafer, it's metal, it's awesome.

    That headline provoked a very unpleasant image. Although metal up your ass was hardly a pleasant image to begin with. Anyhoo 2 comments the first from Brad's article "Is it really still cool to be way into heavy metal?" - it has never been really cool to be way into heavy metal, that's why Jack Black is (or can be when on form) funny, btw this is NOT a dig at metal as anyone who knows what I lokk like should be able to tell. Secondly keyhunter  said "As long as Tim Schafer's idea of metal isn't shit like Rise Against and Metallica", now I can't comment on Rise Against cuz I haven't really heard anything by them, but anyone who is even remotely into metal and doesn't like Metallica is a charlatan and a philistine, and should, therefore, be lashed and force to listen to nothing but Master of Puppets (album not song) for a month.

    I think he's (keyhunter) talking about current-day metallica, or rather, metallica since the black album. And I wholehartedly agree with him. All they have going for them nowadays is that they still give good live performances (at least the 3 I visited).  

    Secondly there are many kinds of metal, someone could be totally into black/death/doom-metal and not like metallica. I'm not that person but I perceive this as a plausible possibility. But dude seriously, calling people a charlatan and phillistine just because they don't like one band in the genre, especially in Metallica's case, that's messed up. Your live would be a lot easier if you'd refrain from caring so much about what other people think (or worse, what other people feel).

    lmao the first time i watched a video for this and i saw the main char i thought to my self " hey that kind of looks like jack black! i loved him in Pick of destiny! they should of so gotten him to do VO/music for the game!Oh well that could never happen" then he spoke and i thought "haha neat that kinda sounds like jack black!" then he spoke again" HOLY FUCK THAT IS JACK BLACK!".

    Now after waching the video im interested in the game. For some reason every thing i saw of it b4 was screens of him rideing around the car, so i thought it was gonna be like a twisted metal game. So i just ignored it, but after watching some of the videos for it, i'm def gonna rent this one.

    "Is it really still cool to be way into Heavy Metal?" - Yes and if it isn't just call me a dork. Most metalheads won't jump ship if their favorite genre isn't condsidered "cool" anymore. We just usually tell 'em to go fuck themselves.

    Anyways, there is actually a lot of metal music with this type of over the top, parody of it self theme. It's pretty awesome.

    I hope Glam Rock gets torn to shreds. I can't wait for this game. A 3rd person action/adventure game with a metal theme has to be good, right?

    TheSmilingDude have you heard Death Magnetic? cuz that's pretty fucking awesome, I actually like the entire Metallica catalogue, but can totally see the problem people have with post Black Album (excluding Death Magnetic) stuff, especially Load and ReLoad which were v. hit and miss. Anyhoo I wasn't being entirely serious, people can listen to whatever the hell thet like, I do. Just think it's a bit weird for anyone to call themselves a metal fan and write off Metallica entirely

    I still don't really fully get what its about, but it looks promising none the less. Lot of fun anyway, even though I don't really like metal anyway.

    Instant buy. Not only does it come across like classic Tim Schafer at his most epic, the gameplay sounds like a whole lot of fun - mixing action adventure with minion controlling strategy, plus a sweet upgradable ride. And you know there's going to be crazy details and easter eggs in an open world setting considering the time they've spent working on this thing. Can not wait!

    I'm not worried weather or not this game will be awesome. I knew it would be pure epic as soon as I saw the first add all those years ago (2007 I think). Music is my life. I live and breath music. I play guitar, bass, drums, and piano, and want to learn some more. I've been waiting for a game like this to be coming out, and now that it's almost here. I'm about to explode. Thank you Eddie Riggs!

    Personally, anything past Sepultura's level of heaviness just turns into self-parody to me, but not a good type of self-parody.  It's kind of like the uncanny valley of metal.  Once metal gets to a certain level, it stops sounding badass and just sounds silly to me.

    Thankfully, this seems like it will focus on classic metal more than anything else, which should be wonderful.  Motorhead, Dio, Judas Priest?  Yes, please!

    If anyone's interested, the opening song for the trailer is hellion by Judas priest.  Just thought I'd share the love if anyone thought it sounded cool. And it leads into electric eye.

    This game is shaping up to be awesome in so many ways.

    Screw you Brad, I don't know how things are in the US, but over here, not liking metal would be like denying the holocaust ;)

    And agreed, All hail Schafer! \m/

    Awesome, I really can't wait for this.


    It would be really funny if the bad guy had been Dio.  I wonder if The Metal will be in the game.

    Tenacious D... Ohhhhh Yeeeaaaahhhh.

    I can't really see why people are so hyped for this, it doesn't look very special to me but I guess I was more into the Chili Peppers then Metallica.
