Okay Mr.Schafer you've sold me.  The last good funny game I can remember was probably Conker BFD back on the N64.  I am really looking forward to this.

Really looking forward to this. I can't look at Brad the same way anymore though, he has yet to play through a Tim Schafer game. For shame!

The real enemy is mediocre, corporate rock?  Does that mean the final level is a battle against Busted?  I've always wanted to kill them...

In a video game, of course.

Why does the guy that's never PLAYED a Tim Shafer  game get to interview him?  Brad really needs to go back and play those games.  There is a reason Tim Shafer is my favorite game designer!

One of about only four games I'm looking forward to this year, two of which are sports games. Slow year compared to 07 and 08.

I've had this game on my radar since it was announced and through all the publishing snafus I'm really glad that it's coming out this year. I've been a fan a Tim Schafer since Grim Fandango. I sooo can't wait for this game.

I would also be down for PC version.  Cater to your roots Shafer!  Very nice interview.  Was excited to see what Tim Schafer would be like in person.

I loved Psychonauts and of course Schafer's work in the 90's, but I'm worried that Brutal Legend will just fall into a miry repetition of rock related cliche and innuendo's. I'm imagining it to be in the vein of a bad Tenacious D related video game that should have been released about six years ago, (I.E: before Jack Black became tedious).

Of course, this is regardless of the fact that I and everyone else should buy this anyway just so that Double Fine can stay open.
