Brutal Legend

Download: Probot (feat. Jack Black) - "I Am The Warlock"

I've never bought too heavily into the whole metal thing, but Brütal Legend looks like it is going to be all kinds of wicked. Made by Double Fine Productions, the action-adventure game is going to be released in 2008 for the PS3 and the 360.

In the game, you play roadie Eddie Riggs (Jack Black) as he fight his way out of a Death Metal/Nordic gods-themed world to save the world – and save his love, Ophelia.

This game is going to be epic. You can see the trailer here, but you're going to need to play it to believe. Double Fine founder Tim Schaefer has been behind two of the most innovative and beautiful games of the decade: Grim Fandango and Psychonauts. Grim Fandango is a film noir trip through the Land of the Dead, with all the characters decked out Mexican Day of the Dead-style. Psychonauts is a massively stylized voyage into the minds of a whole slew of characters ranging from a mutated lungfish to a conspiracy-crazed milkman.

If I had to make any predictions about this game, I would say that it will be brimming with dry humor and visual effects executed with an unholy amount of panache and wildly unpredictable storytelling. It's going to be great…I'm going to buy a 360 to play it.
