    It's the middle of July. You're probably eyeing the upcoming Summer of Arcade games, thinking about upgrading to PlayStation Plus, or trying to decide what else is worth picking up on the cheap.

  • Double Fine Working On Four Games

    Tim Schafer's been on our blog a lot over the last couple days. Yesterday, the head of Double Fine called Bobby Kotick both a d*ck and a pr*ck (he later said it was "an accident"), and a new Double Fine T-shirt design led the gullible (Jake Gaskill) to imagine a Psychonauts sequel, and now this: Schafer says his company is at work on...

  • Double Fine Hiring For Work On "Original IP"

    Tim Schafer and the fine folks over at Double Fine had great success with their heavy-metal love letter Brutal Legend, but it appears that the team is leaving Eddie Riggs behind as the developer is currently hiring for work on an original IP. While Double Fine is “always recruiting everybody...ALL THE TIME!,” they are especially...

  • How Brutal Legend's Publisher Troubles Affected The Game's Development

    The road to releasing a Double Fine game is never easy. There are always twists, turns and unexpected bumps along the way. Psychonauts was dropped mid-development by Microsoft and picked up then-ambitious Majesco. Psychonauts had it easy compared to Brutal Legend, however. Psychonauts didn't have a merger force the initial transition...

  • Brutal Legend Hammer of Infinite Fate DLC Detailed

    Heavy Metal game Brutal Legend has some more downloadable content on the way. The Hammer of Infinite Fate pack gives main character Eddie Riggs three new outfits (Mountain Man, Black Metal and Zaulia Threads) and seven more back patches to choose from, so you'll be styling. That's not all, though. Eddie's car, The Deuce, will be getting four...

    It was just yesterday that we all found out about the closing of Pandemic Studios, creators of the Mercenaries series and the upcoming The Saboteur. While there have been a lot of game developers shutting their doors recently, this one seems to represent something larger than a simple financial decision. Pandemic's publisher EA tried an...

  • Brutal Legend And DJ Hero Fail To Crack Top Ten In Sales

    I hate to be a bringer of bad news, but I'm going to bring you some anyway: Neither DJ Hero nor Brutal Legend even cracked the top ten in terms of software sales in October, although DJ Hero came out late in the month, and Brutal Legend came out on the 13th. In October, Brutal Legend sold about 216,000 units while DJ Hero wracked up about...

  • Brutal Legend Multiplayer DLC Detailed And Dated

    One of the shortcomings of the multiplayer portion of Double Fine’s inspired ode to heavy metal, Brutal Legend (check out my review to find just how inspired), was its limited number of maps and modes. While I can’t tell you when you might be able to engage in something other than straight up skirmishes, I can tell you that new maps...

  • Brutal Legend's Blurry Morality

    Do you care about the morality and ethics of video games? That's among the many questions posed by Crispy Gamer's David Thomas in a recent editorial about Brutal Legend. The ethics of Brutal Legend are ambiguous: The game's "hero" is sent on a mission from a demon and has to save rock and roll by murdering people and creatures that...
