KABBAGE BOY!?!?! OMG!!! 16 Sep, 2009, 21:35 / 10 comments

A number of things:

1. The Brutal Legend demo hits XBLA and PSN tomorrow for those of us in the pre-order crowd (throw up the horns; stand up and shout). Everyone else gets their hands on the demo next week.

2. The very first cutscene is available for viewing. (Well, I'm assuming it's the first one, anyways.) Watch it, dude, check it, but needless to say: spoilers.

Needless to say, though, that there are so many things they got absolutely right in that cutscene - it really is astounding.

3. Small article on EA and Double Fine.

"Kabbage Boy," though. Talk about hitting the nail on the head. The fans' reaction. Rocktober can't come soon enough for me.

    Wah! Why can't we get this "pre-order bonus" in the UK??? Do you US guys get a code or something you can share with us? :)

    Eh? GAME has been offering the pre-order bonus for as long as GameStop. I got my demo code on Monday.

    You need to start reading my site, man!

    Wasn't the pre-order demo out last week? I thought it was the straight demo out today/tomorrow?

    Loved the swearing bit!

    Today the Gamestop pre-order crowd gets their demo. Next week, everyone else gets theirs.

    That... was... pretty amazing.

    That's the voice of Raz! Awesome!

    Still a bit annoyed that we can't get the pre-order bonus over here. I don't really care about the early demo, but I hate missing ingame stuff like the Tenacious D-guitar and Kyle Glass.

    I think Kyle Gass is in the game anyways.

    Who's the Raz actor playing (I think his name was Richard Horvitz)? The lead singer? (Incidentally, my favourite new character.)

    I don't know the name of the actor who played Raz, and I haven't checked if it's really him, but it sure sounds like him. He even does the little song and dance from Psychonauts!
  • Kroms on 16 Sep, 2009, 22:26…
    Ahaha! You're right! I just noticed! Very perceptive.

    That dance is an awesome reference. Wow. And when he says "So much this time," it IS Raz. Very good, AlfredJ!

    Too bad the demo won't hit early here in the Netherlands. I still pre-ordered though, the game is just to metal not too.
