EA + Brütal Legend = Love (Updated!) 12 Dec, 2008, 20:38 / 19 comments

Or EA Partners as it is, but that's splitting hairs. Looks like Schafer's latest creation will be released next fall and we can all breathe easily again.

Now go feel silly.

Update by Kroms: Sweet smell of success! Eurogamer celebrates by interviewing Mr. Schafer about the game, although not much is revealed. But yet, what you feel by the end...is love.

Update by Jason: Rather than push the EA news down, I'll just post this here - Mojo reader MarioColbert has noticed that the Psychonauts banner on the Double Fine products page that has caused so much speculation in the past now leads to an official Psychonauts wiki. This "Psychopedia," while in its infancy, is truly awesome, amazing, and incredibly detailed, and I have to recommend checking it out this very moment. Take, for example, the fact that they have the complete hour long Icons special that G4 aired around the time the game came out which looks at the history of Schafer and details Double Fine's final week of development on the game. Additionally, the Double Fine store is now offering a new shirt.

    EA + Anything = Absolute shit

    You've got the right side of the equation right, but I think, mathematically, the left side should be: your face.

    I'm going to risk showing a trace of blind optimism and call this statement just a tad presumptuous.

    RE: PSYCHOPEDIA...

    The G4 Icons video stalls on an image of Tim being awesome as usual, but that prevents you from seeing the badassery that is Grim Fandango art and the team celebrating Psychonauts.

    RE: PC:
    EA makes PC release more likely, along with draconian DRM. :)

    Still feeling apprehensive about that lack of a PC mention
  • Jaap on 13 Dec, 2008, 18:34…
    I'll probably end up buying a PS3.
    Brutal Legend
    Heavy Rain
    LittleBigPlanet

    With a bit of luck they sell 'm for less than $300 in fall 2009.
  • jp-30 on 12 Dec, 2008, 19:37…
    Yes, I also require a PC or Wii version. Thanks Tim.
  • Maratanos on 12 Dec, 2008, 19:45…
    Wii is probably not gonna happen. By all accounts it's going to be a pretty resource-intensive game.
  • The Tingler on 12 Dec, 2008, 22:22…
    Agreed, but I definitely need a PC version.
  • Kolzig on 12 Dec, 2008, 22:50…
    I also very much indeed need a PC version.
    Otherwise I simply have no way to play this game ever... :(
  • Capn_Nacho on 12 Dec, 2008, 22:46…
    Man, I just bought a 360 last week and don't have any games to play on it! I'm sure a lot of Double Fine fans are in this position.
  • MarioColbert on 13 Dec, 2008, 03:51…
    Get: BRAID, The Orange Box, and Castle Crashers. 360 has some games on it worthy of your attention, but I'm still torn between a 360 and a PS3 (LBP, echochrome, pixeljunk eden) for my Brutal fix, alongside Beyond Good and Evil...
  • MarioColbert on 12 Dec, 2008, 16:52…
    I love the Tingler for posting the link I was going to post.
  • The Tingler on 12 Dec, 2008, 16:27…
    Hooray! Let's just hope EA don't get bought too, or decide to ditch it because most of their creative risks this year didn't pay off!
  • Udvarnoky on 12 Dec, 2008, 16:12…
    woot.
  • telarium on 12 Dec, 2008, 16:01…
    Awesome.
  • Toddas on 12 Dec, 2008, 15:26…
    I'm actually quite happy it's EA. They seem to be doing a good job these days...
  • Kroms on 12 Dec, 2008, 19:30…
    Strangely: me too. :)
