Jack Black usurps Internet meme throne in Brutal Thoughts #5

5:45 PM on 07.23.2009 // Samit Sarkar

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, three, and four) have been, to be frank, terribly unfunny. And I worry that Jack Black overexposure may turn some people off from Brütal Legend, which looks like a kick-ass game.

But the latest entry in the “Brutal Thoughts” series actually got a chuckle or two out of me. It focuses on famous YouTube viral videos, with Black presenting his own effort: Jellybean, the World’s First Guitar-Playing Cat. But Jellybean needs a little stimulus to get going -- Black’s fingering motions don’t get the job done for her -- so he plays some gameplay footage, and that’s all Jellybean requires to start shredding.

If the footage got you going, too, you might want to check out Nick’s preview and my E3 write-up on Brütal Legend to read up on the game. It’ll be out in less than three months -- Rocktober 13th is the day of reckoning. I sure hope that Double Fine’s countersuit wins out over Activision’s original lawsuit, so that the game isn’t delayed. And in case you can’t get enough of Eddie Riggs, hit up the two longer gameplay videos with commentary from Tim Schafer himself!

Kotobukiya's making a Xenoblade Chronicles X Formula skell model that looks great but I'd rather have a Lailah model. And I would name it Tharja just like my Lailah in the game.

Damn you, TV Tropes. As if I wasn't already dead set against doing an Undertale genocide run, this has killed the possibility for me.

Yep, Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly is still as bad and unpolished as I remember it. Still manages to give me a headache too due to the choppy framerate.

Eye of the Beholder (2014) - Possible boss battle theme for a video game. Love the action strings and bell instrument. I wrote this song for 2AD14 - II, which has many great tracks on it. This one is one of my favorites, which is why I'm sharing it.

My favorite Pokemon doesn't give a fuck if it's 4x weak to ground or fighting. Aggron has enough defense to give you a dirty look after Earthquake.
