As big fans of just about anything Tim Schafer does, we're anxiously anticipating Double Fine's new project, Brutal Legend. We were happy to hear that EA has decided to give it a new publishing home after the Activision/Blizzard/Sierra shuffling, and Jack Black is the perfect actor for the game's primary protagonist. Here's the World Premier, as shown at 2008's SpikeTV Video Game Awards, and it's just a taste of the eventual goodness. If you're not familiar with Schafer's stuff, we suggest you anticipate something completely original, genuinely humorous, and absolutely zany. It's what he does best, and if you check his recent past - last-gen's Psychonauts included - you'll know exactly what we mean.
