Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 was released nearly four years ago, and since then the console has been graced with hundreds of great titles. Therefore, we at PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to the people who create the games that make our mundane lives just that little bit more entertaining: the developers.
When I first started writing this story, the idea was to have a list of ten PS3 games which have made me laugh. Unfortunately, after I got up to four, thinking of any others suddenly became about as easy as completing Demon’s Souls single-handedly (i.e. not very easy at all). I honestly couldn’t think of any other games which I can legitimately describe as being funny (excluding games like Damnation and Rogue Warrior of course, which are funny for a completely different reason).
Brütal Legend will get its second DLC pack on December 17th in the US (other regions TBC).
Entitled “Hammer of Infinite Fate”, the pack will see Eddie get a series of new skins, weapon upgrades, and multiplayer maps. Nine new trophies have also been confirmed.
Don’t want to stop rocking yet in Brutal Legend? Then don’t! EA is releasing “The Tears of the Hextadon” downloadable content pack very soon… for absolutely free!
We all know Tim Schafer’s BrÃ¼tal Legend features a hell of a lot of metal.
However, what we didn’t know was to just what extent the guys at Double Fine and EA went to make the music in the upcoming game one of the finest testaments to the metal genre ever.
In fact, it’s so jam packed with artists from the very top of the metal food-chain that they’re calling BrÃ¼tal Legend’s music “the Ultimate Heavy Metal Soundtrack”.
Good news for BrÃ¼tal Legend fans, the game will meet the October release date set by EA after Activision and Double Fine reached an out of court settlement.
If you are not familiar with the war between the publisher and developer, in short Activison were claiming that they in fact owned the rights to the franchise and were trying to stop the game’s release which is in fact being published by Electronic Arts.
By now, if you don’t know about Brutal Legend, we would like to be the first to welcome you out from under your rock.
Long story short, Jack Black is a roadie who gets shunted into another world.
To set the scene and give us all a taste of the sort of humour to expect, Jack has provided us with the 3rd in his series of, erm, unique videos.
EA had quite the showing during their press conference yesterday. It was filled with trailers, guest appearances, and live demos. In case you missed it, we live blogged the event straight from the audience. Here’s a quick recap of the announcements made…
Pre-order BrÃ¼tal Legend with GameStop and receive an exclusive in-game guitar. But this is not an ordinary guitar made by mere mortals or any kind of â€˜horse armorâ€™ guitar deal. This guitar will give you the power to kill a yak, from 200 yards away. To pay Tribute. To play that mythical One Note Song. To bring The Metal.
If you are a fan of the site (and honestly how could you not be?) you should know by now that BrÃ¼tal Legend is looking fine and that it is going to rock your PlayStation 3 this Rocktober.
So you know that BrÃ¼tal Legend rocks, Jack Black is awesome and that Tim ‘Freakin’ Schaffer is a video game genius. But what do you know about the story of BrÃ¼tal Legend?
Mere mortals rejoice! Let your hair grow, grab your black leather jacket, wear your best jeans, throw up the horns and be ready to answer the call of the Metal Gods this Rocktober. BrÃ¼tal Legend is coming your way; even if you are not worthy.
The Tim Schafer designed, Double fined developed, Electronic Arts published medieval metal adventure (MMA?) is now dated in both North America and Europe.
Brutal Legend, EA’s upcoming game featuring the voice of Jack Black as a Rock Metal roadie, is looking great. Thrown back in time to help the innocent and vanquish the evil through the use of power chords, lightening and fire-breathing boars (seriously!), players will see an alternate history unlikely to be found elsewhere. How good does it look? See for yourself…
