Cmon, you know Ozzy only sounds fucked up as he does on TV because its a public image. In reality the guy has got a lot of problems caused by burning out on so many drugs over the years, but its not as bad as they make it seem. Its commercially viable for him to sound like he's speaking complete jibberish (i.e. those texting commercials) so he does.

Despite hating metal, thinking Psychonauts was pretty average (sorry guys), and feeling that the combat looks boring as hell, this game looks like so much win that I will feel forced to pick it up.

Yeah I wasn't a big Psychonauts fan as far as the actual gameplay or humor was concerned, but it had spirit, I guess you could say. Brutal Legend looks like a definite improvement in my eyes. I lol'd.

I'm with the developers  actually, I didn't know Ozzy could act that well.

Also I didn't know this game would be so quirky. Like, maybe I'm just an idiot but the headbangers are just an idea I would have never come up with. I can't wait to see more characters like that.

So, Activision is suing Double Fine to stop the release of the game claiming EA stole it from them or something.

Double Fine filed a countersuit claiming Activision is just trying to remove competition from Guitar Hero. As evidence that their game is competition the countersuit mentioned something hilariously terrible:

Quote
Double Fine's suit claims Activision never showed interest in the game and canceled it in 2008 after it acquired Vivendi Universal Games. That was after an effort to convert the game into a "Guitar Hero" sequel failed.

I'm having such trouble remembering a time when EA was the bad guy because Activision has taken that mantle so thoroughly.

I'm sure EA wouldn't have picked up the game if they thought the legal threat was at all significant, as we can see from the quote Jace posted. I'm sure it's just Activision trying to throw as much of a monkey wrench in EA's financial schedule as they can out of spite because they underestimated the game's potential success.

Activision dropped a number of games when it merged:

Brutal Legend
Ghostbusters
Wet
Chronicles of Riddick
Fiffy Cent: Blood on the Sand

All of those games seem really good.  I've been excited for Wet since I first saw a teaser for it almost a year go, when it got dropped I was so worried that it was going to get cancelled but then it was picked up by Bethesda.  Ghostbusters did really well, I wasn't interested but then again I only really like the first Ghostbusters.  Chronicles and Fiffy seemed pretty cool. 

Activision have proven themselves to be nothing but complete and utter jerks for the past while.  From threatening to stop supporting Sony to all of their games having expensive peripherals.  Tony Hawk: Skate?  90 bucks.  DJ Hero 90 bucks.  And now there's some new shenanigans for making Modern Warfare 2 10 dollars more expensive as a "one time experiment" or some such deal.  As well as all the stuff about Double Fine.  All their actions have pretty much convinced me to never buy from them again unless they come out with something absolutely and incredibly amazing (which they won't)

What was more suprising for me was all the interviews and docs I saw showing how ridiculously involved 50 was with this entire production.  Usually when actors say they play lots of videogames it's a bunch of bull (Megan Fox for Transformers).  But 50 would be talking about how much action he wanted and how he wanted the gamer to a have a really fun time.  Watch him talk about the first game, the guy hated the living guts out of it.  I'd pick it up but I've heard it's only like...6 hours of gameplay.

As soon as I read they'd moved to settle I had a feeling it would be something like this. Activision got pulled for not having a leg to stand on and the last thing anybody wants at the moment is an expensive, protracted legal battle, particularly when what I imagine the real objective - delaying the game's release - was probably not even going to land.

This is unconfirmed, but supposedly EA's Danish branch has accidentally leaked Brutal Legend's entire licensed soundtrack. I'm not familiar with all of it, and some of it's not good (Static-X? Marilyn Manson?), but there's some pretty inspired choices on that list. Carcass, Candlemass, Overkill, Running Wild, and Slough Feg are all bands that I'm pretty surprised got in. There is a very conspicuous lack of Maiden, as the article points out, but maybe EA couldn't work out those rights since I know that process has been difficult for the rhythm game makers.

By the way, this game is still going to kick tremendous ass, in case you had forgotten.

Man, out of all of the overkill songs there are (62 if you stop at I hear Black, the few albums after that tend to be as polarizing as the black album, same with their newest stuff), they had to pick Word of Hurt? It isn't a bad track, but there are so many better ones.

Other than that, this looks like it is going to be completely awesome.

It also fills me with untold amounts of rage (this may or may not be hyperbole).

Do people who have already decided to buy the game really need to try it out to see if they like it?

Oh, they got in a couple days later, I was just a little miffed because I really wanted my best friend to check it out before he had to go back to Arizona.  Which he was able to, and he went from highly skeptical to totally hooked, so it was worth the guilt from badgering the guys at Gamestop for the codes.

Yeah, the demo ends right after you beat the worm boss, which is pretty early on if you've seen the developer videos. Apparently that's where the open world becomes available, so it makes sense that they cut it off there. Still, the demo is all of 20 minutes, tops.

And the best part is that the guitar doesn't actually kick in until you pick up the axe! Before that you just get the bassline so you can listen to the jokes and still have the song sync up for the badass part. So good.

I know. I watched a commentary by Tim Schaefer (did I misspell that?) over someone playing the demo, that moment sold it to me. As soon as I have the money and it is on a system I own (come on, port it to PC, you know you want to), I am getting this.
