The lights are on
Rocktober is almost upon us. You can't get your hands on Brutal Legend until October 13, but these two comedic geniuses entertain in the interim with banter about all things metal.
Watching these titans of comedy discuss the life of a roadie, doing steroids as a commitment to excellence, and Satan's side job as bell boy of the Four Seasons is not for the faint of heart. If you dislike swear words, bulging biceps, and/or things that are awesome, don't watch these videos. (If that's the case, we have no idea why you clicked this link anyway, and you should be ashamed.) The first video is footage from the Brutal Legend press conference starring Tim Schafer and Jack Black.
Dig that awesome display of rockitude? The Brutal banter isn't over yet. Watch Tim Schafer interview Jack Black in the persona of Eddie Riggs, extended footage of the press conference, and an exclusive gameplay video in our media viewer below.
Finally, check out our Codec Chatter interview, where we talk about the music behind the game and a whole lot more.

I can't wait for this game! What really attracts me to a game is the passion of its creators, as well. Brutal Legend is a great example of this. Their enthusiasm is contagious!
LOL JACK BLACK IS HILARIOUS
Jack Black is awesome !!!!!
Can't wait! Looks AWESOME.
The demo was really good and super fun and they said they didn't write the part just for Jack Black but I don't think many could do it better.
Sweet!! The multiplayer is looking better and better.
Or was it single player?
This game is so fresh...
I played the demo and I believe Im going to get it and uncharted 2 which i alredi have reserved!!!
Kudos to Schafer and Black for creating such an epic game!
That was a hilarious interview! Really shows the love the developers and Jack put into the game. WE NEED MORE GAMES LIKE THIS!!!!!
This game is going to Rock My F'ing Socks Off!
i like jack black to an extent.year one was ok he had some funny moents.tropic thunder hilarious.brutal legend looks to be decent.i played the demo and from what i played (to the end).it looks do be pretty good so far.but like i said at times he gets on my nerves.i saw tenacious d open for kid rock a few years ago.wasnt impressed.couldnt wait for them to get off stage.
Despite the fact that this game appears to be quite funny, and the visuals are all sorts of twisted fun, I still can't get myself past the fact that the controls for the game play itself felt a little more basic than I was expecting. Hoping that the rest of this experience drowns that out for me with the full release.
As funny as Jack Black is, and how awesome he is, he looks preety *** scarry with those arms
I still don't see the appeal of this game. Is it just a hack n' slash with a story or what?
I really want to play this game, but I already bought ODST and MW2 is coming. I'll wait for reviews to come in before I make a final decision.
Playing the demo the other day, I am really excited to play this game. I love the comedy and storyline of this game.
that was the bomb!
lol this was funny XD
Its great to see a new game being fresh and original.
