Activision: Brutal Legend is ours.

Variety - February 13, 2009

Activision Blizzard is under the impression it still has publishing rights to the game. And it’s threatening to sue developer Double Fine and new publisher Electronic Arts as a result. EA has responded with its claws bared, giving me this rather pointed response: We doubt that Activision would try to sue. That would be like a husband abandoning his family and then suing after his wife meets a better looking guy.

New Trailer Rocks

Watch the latest Brutal Legend trailer for a small taste of the storyline and gameplay, both of which look and sound amazing. If the game is even half as good as this trailer, fans of games, movies and rocknroll will eat it up. In the words of Jim Cramer, "Buy, Buy, Buy!"

Brütal Legend Should Do Well

Self Written - January 14, 2009

Submitted by pbensh77 (44) at 7:24PM PST on January 14, 2009

New Tim Schafer, developer of critically acclaimed Psychonauts, game promises to be something different. I am excited to "play", what will be in my mind, a rock opera. With the Guitar Hero and Rock Band phenomena, I would imagine a rock opera type game with Jack Black's influence combined with Tim Schafer's imagination and design skills will be a huge hit.
