  1. The problem with Kickstarter is that It's not as hot as it used to be. People are a lot more leery of it dude to so many failed Kickstarters and projects that some backers felt didn't live up to what was promised. Part of that problem is people not having a clear idea of what's happening when they help fund a project. Just like any other investment in something that doesn't exist yet there are a lot of risks. Add onto that the fact that it's almost impossible to get funding without giving people a clear idea of what you're making while knowing you can't create something artistic without altering it as you create it. That's one of the reasons why so many devs get burn out so fast in this industry. All the money people want one thing and you want to do that thing but maybe you realize this or that thing they want won't work or you come up with a better idea yet they still want that thing. Then you realize It's going to take longer because good things take time to make but people are naturally going to want to see some kind of return on their money. It's a lot of pressure and I don't blame DF for being leery of using it unless they absolutely have to. The successes are fun but they don't come without massive drawbacks.
  2. First a pic from Brutal Legend which is one of my all time favorite games: http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/615021986564129302/723F0AB24F7F838365A05BBC8A643D4F61C4990D/
  3. <3 you folks are damn good to past, present and future BL fans. <3
  4. Yeah...I don't get it, either. Why would Eddie's guitar call on a force of darkness. If it's a V, why not call on the power of the guardian of metal, Ozzy? Then the V would make more sense.
  5. If they did alter it, I don't see why. I mean, the one majorly great thing about this game is that the female characters in it are equally as badass as the male ones. The romance between Eddie and Ophelia is probably one of the best written ones in any game. This game not only honors metal, it shows metal just how inclusive it could be if it lived up to its potential as an art form, so for them to alter her shirt..some girls like wearing those kinds of shirts. I hope double fine is just fixing clipping issues and not second guessing themselves.
  6. Excellent work, friend. I raise a toast to you!
  7. Whoa...pretty badass. I think Eddie might raise an eyebrow at the screamo vocals but it rocks, that's all that matters. Thanks for pointing it out.
  8. I'm very much a one track mind kinda guy. If it weren't for easy mode, I wouldn't have made it through the campaign I love this game but I totally suck at the hybrid stuff. I guess i'll forever be alone in wishing it were a straight action/rpg with rpg elements, instead.
  9. ...... Double Fine...I love you!! RIP RANDY! He's the reason I got into playing guitar in '86. Until then, i'd been a fan of rap, primarily (still love hip hop), but then I heard my sisters friend playing 'Tribute'. The sound just blew me away. Ozzy and Randy were my first taste of rock and roll, and were the reason I got into heavy metal. Randy inspired me to get my own Les Paul and practice 10 hours a day. I am a former victim of child sexual abuse (just like Ozzy), and heavy metal helped me get through a lot of painful moments. Ozzy's music was there for me when I had nothing else to turn to. When I heard: Nobody ever told me I found out for myself Ya gotta believe in foolish miracles It's not how you play the game It's if you win or lose you can choose Don't confuse win or lose, it's up to you It's up to you, it's up to you, it's up to you I really got it. I understood exactly what he was talking about. Because of Ozzy and Randy, I stood up to the people in my life who were putting me through that and I told them NO. I wasn't going to take that kind of crap from them or anyone else. Music is incredibly important to me. It has changed my life in so many ways, most of them positive. The power of music is so amazing and it's incredible the kind of impact one single person can have in the lives of so many. I wish Randy were here with us but I honest think that were he here with us today, we would be honoring him as one of the premiere classical musicians/composers in the world and I have no doubt that he would be a teacher. Thanks for honoring him, Double Fine. For those of you who want to be inspired by another legend who still lives, writes music and inspires, check out Jason Beckers website and pick up some of his music. Check out the Jason Becker story, too. It will inspire you. http://jasonbeckerguitar.com/ http://www.jasonbeckermovie.com/
  10. Let me get this out of the way-I love Brutal Legend, love Double Fine. I know this has been brought up before but I feel the need to state it again-Double Fine, you guys really need to work on being a bit clearer about labeling stuff. What you're selling with the game is not a 'soundtrack'. Technically, it's the games score. By labeling it a 'soundtrack' you're confusing everyone by making them think they're getting all the licensed tracks. Customers shouldn't have to go looking things up on your forums, it should be right there in the Steam store, clearly labeled. Otherwise, someone could very well get the impression that you're trying to fool people into thinking they're getting all the licensed music, too..which isn't the case. I know it's called the 'original soundtrack' but that really doesn't tell people anything. Maybe relabel it 'Original score by Peter McConnell' because I know a lot of my friends read about the soundtrack and then read this: 'Music The music in Brütal Legend is truly massive. Made up of 108 of the most rocking tracks from 75 different bands representing every sub-genre of metal, it is something to experience in and of itself.' and thought that that meant they were getting all the licensed music, too. It should go without saying that they were a little miffed. Anyways, i'm just saying this because I love you folks and the game and hate seeing people get upset at ya for something like this, especially when it's so easily remedied.
  11. My logitech F310 ps3-style pc controller works with this beautifully.
  12. I'm using a Logitech F310 PS3-style controller and it works beautifully. I'm also using the mouse and keyboard every now and then on my other computer and that works just fine, too. Do you mean an actual ps2/ps3 controller with an adapter, or a ps2/ps3 'style' controller, like my logitech? Odds are, if you're not using a controller meant to be used specifically with a PC, you might expect issues.
