i gotta say, based on that footage, brutal legend looks brutally average as far as action games go. i'll be checking it out purely for the wacky story. but the gameplay certainly isnt getting me excited.

That looked f'n rad. Sure, the combat looks average, but I certainly wasn't expecting above average hack'n'slash gameplay; that's more reserved for your NGs and DMCs.

As long as there's some variety and it's not frustrating to play, it's got enough humour, charm, and convincing voice acting in a setting that I downright dig to make it a sure thing for me.

I'm getting this game solely to support Jack Black lol.

This is relevant to my interests.

hmm looks average and now only seems to have its very cool art style going for it. Not the type of game I'd play for the story so that's more or less just giving me a reason as to why I'm doing what I'm doing. I was just expecting better in the end.

Eh, I actually thought the action looked pretty 'kick ass' judging by the gameplay footage. It was awesome when he does that special attack to bring down the building.

I'll be keeping an eye on this one, fo' shore.

I wish it was more of a platformer than a hack and slash. I will buy this soley cause psychonauts was such a great game and i'm hoping not to be let down with this one.

Since when did GOW invent the hack 'n slash? Besides, the gameplay doesn't look like GOW at all (except superficially), it looks more like a 3D Golden Axe if you were playing with Gilius Thunderhead.

I'm getting it because a) the premise is funny b) Jack Black is funny c) it's too metal for you mothaf*cka.

cant wait for this game its just to heavy ;)
the setting, the main-character and the feeling are sooo unique.
already pre ordered.

As it stands, I'm on the fence. Since the footage is early in the game, we're only really seeing Eddie by himself, or with one other party-member. I'm curious to see how the whole "metal army" angle plays out. ;)

Ooh, can we already pre-order? I'm putting my money down for this funny open-world hack-and-slash RTS metal awesomeness.

Looks like a lot of fun to me. The premise to this game really interests me, something a little different from the norm.

Cant wait to play it!

    Moonwalker on GTA V. I SO hope they will fix/improve the physics for RDR2. Even if it was Euphoria in V, it wasn't nearly as impressive as RDR. (1 Hour ago)

    Moonwalker Sometimes when i talk to my friends it's about how the new gen is quite a let down, but this game showed me different, especially the image quality. Animations still great though and the physics crap (1 Hour ago)

    Moonwalker very visible. It was awesome for its time though. But then looking at the RDR2 trailer makes me appreciate it even more. (1 Hour ago)

    Moonwalker @Sdarts: Started to play RDR again today, and yup. On my 55 inch OLED it really isn't as pretty as i remember it. Some friends recently said it still looks pretty...nah it does not, haha. Aliasing is (1 Hour ago)
