Welcome to the darkest, most brutal LucasForums forum yet. This place is for discussion of Brutal Legend, the awesome metal-themed game from Tim Schafer; you may remember him from such releases as The Secret of Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango, and Psychonauts.

For more information about Brutal Legend than could possibly be crammed into this sticky, head over to BRUTAL! The Legendary Fan Site (http://www.brutallegend.net/). :D

Wasn't this game dropped by Activision Blizzard?

Although it's still yet to be officially confirmed, it does seem that way. See here:

http://www.brutallegend.net/frequently-asked-questions/#publisher_problems

Brutal Legend was originally being published by Sierra Entertainment, which was owned by Vivendi Games. In 2008, Vivendi Games and Activision ó another publisher ó merged to form a new company: Activision Blizzard. Sierra Entertainment thus became a subsidary of Activision Blizzard, and in the process a lot of games across the entire new company were shelved.

All reports indicate that Brutal Legend was one of these games, and itís not clear what exactly the situation is at the moment. An interview with Tim Schafer in August 2008 revealed that Brutal Legend development is continuing as normal, and that Double Fine may be actively re-pitching the game to new investors.

It's worth bearing in mind that unlike a lot of the titles scrapped by Activision Blizzard, Double Fine fully own the rights to Brutal Legend. The publisher can only pull out; they can't actually cancel the game.

It pays to never take anything for granted, but I'll be very surprised if Double Fine can't find a new partner. At the very worst, they've got services like Steam (http://www.steampowered.com/) to fall back on.

As a general FYI, development of the game is still ongoing and the official word from Schafer is that "Brutal Legend is fine".

Sadly, I haven't played any of Tim Schafer games, i've heard many good things, maybe i'll pick up Brutal Legend and Phsyconauts.

If Jesus were a video game, it'd be Psychonauts

Brutal Legend will be Paul or something....

Also, Thrik, you modding this place too?

Are you still under warranty? If you are, just ring XBOX customer service, and send it in to them, they'll pay, and you'll get it back in 2 weeks, like me, and get probably 1 or 6 mnths of XBOX Live.

This sub-forum is a good idea.

Excellent. I expect this game to be an all-of-the-best mixture between Full Throttle and Army of Darkness. In other words, 200% awesome.


If it's coming out for PC, that is.

My brother trying to get me not to. Say's he can fix it. All he'd need is "a towl, paper clips, and possibly a fire extinguisher".
My mom wasn't very fond of his idea.....

Sure am. :)

And yeah zelda, I'd definitely get that sent off to Microsoft if I were you. Once it red rings there's not really much you can do about it; even if it starts working again, it'll most probably only be temporary.

Most of the red rings are caused by the hardware in the console physically getting too hot and causing some of the stuff holding it together to melt & come apart, so it's a no-going-back type of breakage. :(

When thrik tells you to send it in, it's going in. D:
Alright, I'll find the number tonight.

Good idea, after I got my 360 back, I haven't had a single problem with it since, and it's a been a while ;)

Not as eye-blowing as Sam&Max's color theme.

Man this forum just makes me want to go out and get a piercing. Does a cavity filling count?

Hehe...
Double Fine.

Anyways, looks like an interesting game. When (or if) I get a 360, this is going in the cart, right next to it. Along with Mass Effect if I don't get it for the PC.

Can't wait to see what Tim has in mind for this game.

I really hope someone picks up this game Tim Schaefer definitely deserves to get commercially successful games. Physconauts deserved to sell millions. Also whichever company is smart enough to pick this game up should publish the Conduit while their at it.


edit: Good on EA for publishing it and **** Activision for suing, and thanks SEGA for publishing Conduit.

WOW! I just got exposed to the game on the PS3 for the first time last night. Awesome. Just epic and amazing. And it has many things within it that are truly worthy of calling it epic.

The intro, oh man... This is one heluva awesome game.

I just got the game. Incredible concept, I love it. None more black. I will say I was certainly missing Meshuggah and Behemoth though, for BL2 I hope they stick with Nuclear Blast and Relapse more. I would like to hear more grind and less Motorhead-still, awesome. This game is perfect.
