Tim Schafer. Tim f**king Schafer. He's a man that most of us know. One of the writers behind The Secret of Monkey Island, and the man behind Full Throttle, Grim Fandango, Psychonauts, and Brütal Legend, Schafer has remai...


A few weeks ago, Destructoid co-hosted a Twitter party for King of Fighters XII, using everybody's favorite self-obsession network to hand out a bunch of cool prizes to the Destructoid community. The power of the Destructoid ...

Electronic Arts kicked off Gamescom with a presser full of hype and marketing, like any good presser should. Among the festivities was a bit of a boast about Brütal Legend defeating the "huge ugly monster" that...

One of the things I did with my interview with Tim Schafer was allow some community members to offer questions to ask the guy. I liked what DaedHead8 and Krow asked: How is Tim able to be so creative, and how does he get thos...


By now you've heard about the multiplayer for Brütal Legend, as well as the yet-unseen 4v4 mode. But, as we all know, Tim Schafer is a man of many hats, and one of the hats he wore was writer for the original The Secret ...

Okay, so maybe the soundtrack for Brütal Legend leaked a bit early. But for its official reveal, Double Fine and Electronic Arts rock it hard... by having designer Tim Schafer solve a Rubik's Cube. Huh? Sure. Why no...


I don't know if the soundtrack for a game has every truly been "hotly anticipated," but if one had to choose the most "hotly anticipated" soundtrack to a game ever it might just be Brütal Legend's as ...


If you like to see evil publisher Activision getting what it deserves for its greed and hubris, then this is the story for you. The LA Times is reporting that the nefarious company is getting "little to not compensation&...


It's been a bumpy road for Brutal Legend, what with all the legal mumbo jumbo surrounding the game. It started as Activision suing Double Fine for allegedly "improperly" transferring the rights from Activision to El...


Look, I like Jack Black. I’m a big fan of his band, Tenacious D, and I think he’s reasonably funny in general. Unfortunately, most of the “Brutal Thoughts” videos that he’s done (see parts two, t...


According to a report by the Washington Post, Brütal Legend’s developer Double Fine has filed a countersuit to Activision’s legal attempts to prevent the game’s Roktober release. The countersuit contend...


Do you have 22 minutes to spare? In that case, may I recommend viewing this fine gameplay video for Brütal Legend? Like the video from last week, it features commentary from Tim Schafer. And, deciding that he alone is in...


Holy f**k! Look at this thing! LOOK AT IT! This Brütal Legend figure rocks! The Eddie Riggs figure was sculpted by Mark Newman, painted by Tom Vukmanic and is over 17 inches tall. It features Eddie getting ready to kill...

We at Destructoid cannot get enough of Brütal Legend. Everything about this game is going to be so awesome! A new video for the game was released and it shows off the first 17 minutes of the game. All of this was covere...


This October, Double Fine's Brütal Legend will rock the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 so hard that the name of said month has been changed to "Rocktober." And while it's not been confirmed by the developer or its ...


This latest "Brutal Thoughts with Jack Black" promotional video for Brütal Legend isn't quite as funny as some of the previous ones. We blame it on the suspicious lack of Tim Schafer. Well, at least Schafer get...


We don't do "check out this box art" posts that often, but we make our exceptions. Double Fine's Brütal Legend is one of those exceptions. So, you know, "check out this box art."Of note is designer Ti...


NECA has a respectable track record when it comes to making toys based on videogames, so you'll be glad to hear that they're the chaps working on action figures based upon 2K's critically acclaimed BioShock and its sequel. Sh...


Just a scant few posts down we brought you all some unfortunate Brütal Legend news. You probably read it and felt your ability to head bang for five minutes straight slowly seep away. Fear not! We bring head banging reju...


Bear with me here; my metal knowledge begins and ends with the word "metal." So Ronnie James Dio was going to be in Brütal Legend, since he's a metal legend and all and the game is about metal music. Also a met...

Sure, I’m mostly looking forward to the surprises of E3 (and from what I hear, there will be many). But the simple fact that Brütal Legend will be at the show in some form or another is enough to get me out of bed ...


Up until about two months ago, Brutal Legend wasn't anywhere on my list of games that I must own this year. That all changed the night I met Tim Schafer and he demonstrated to me what Brutal Legend was all about. Ten minutes ...


Double Fine is ready to rock during E3, with plenty planned for their big unveiling for their upcoming title Brutal Legend. They've got a scheduled live Twitter...thing, a new Brutal Legend trailer, and a new installment of B...


Right here is where I'd normally say a few things (perhaps some of them "funny") about this new clip Electronic Arts sent us to promote Brütal Legend, but it would be mostly pointless. After the break, there's ...
