Brutal Legend Steam DB Entry Spotted

The Steam Content Description Record Database notes an entry in Steam for Brutal Legend, suggesting it's possible the ground is being laid for a release of a PC edition of Double Fine's music-inspired action/strategy game. There's nothing more to this so far than the game's name. Thanks Joao.

I loved this game on PS3.
Didn't care much for the RTS elements but powered through it anyway to enjoy the music, story and characters, they all made up for it.

This game had great heavy metal aesthetics, an awesome soundtrack, very good voice-acting, and funny jokes.

Too bad it wasn't fun to play. Also, why did Halford look like David Bowie?

Eh it was OK. The combat was a bit undercooked and the endgame was way too heavy on the (boring) RTS element. Still played through just for the Double Fine presentation.

I don't see why they are porting it. As has been said, because of the licensing issues it must cost a fortune (unless they took care of that back when they made the game).

It was a console exclusive. No thanks.

Voted best soundtrack.

There's like 90-odd licensed tracks on the soundtrack. It's psychotic. Apparently they found a local record store that had this guy who was like the encyclopedia of metal, and was introducing the developers to metal sub-genres nobody had heard of before.

That was when I started to lose interest as well. Had it just stayed a 3rd person hack and slash, I prob would have stuck with it...

The humor was great, and Jack Black was a perfect fit.



I kept playing it as a hack & slash with backup. Take off, summon rally point, create murder ball of troops, land, go kick some ass. Wash, rinse, repeat.

And if you quit before Goth land, you missed out on one of the most awesome f*cking landscapes I've ever seen.

Hopefully this won't be capped at 30 FPS like the rest of DF's games.

They better be targeting a budget price; the console version routinely sales for $5-$10.

As for the game, I liked the world, but then it was an average action game and a really awkward RTS game, neither of which blended well with one another. I always had the impression they didn't know what to do with it or somebody else was pulling the design/gameplay strings.
Completely underutilized world and too much tedium.
Waiting for a $5.00 sale,
Ray

Looking forward to this one. I don't have a console, but I really enjoyed watching the cinematics on youtube for this game.

I think the combat style would work well with a keyboard and mouse. I played it through on PS3 with my step-daughter and both of us thought it was fun except that we both found ourselves feeling like we were fighting the gamepad to control the game.

Likewise. I loved the world but hated the RTSesque combat.

Yeah, it was a real head scratcher why they decided to go that way with it. Otherwise it was funny as hell.

Interesting. Didn't get very far in the xbox version, but I might give it another shot.
