      After more than a decade of serving this community well, these forums have finally run their course and it's time to close them down. That doesn't mean we want to close the doors on our community, quite the opposite!
      Our discord server grows ever busier by the day, and we encourage all Double Fine fans to meet us over there www.discord.gg/doublefine In a short time these forums will become a read only archive and will remain that way until they become needed again.
      You never know, it might happen.  There is... a prophecy. Thank you all for being part of these forums, and remember that the fun is definitely not over - so please join us on Discord! Love ya, Spaff, Tim, Info Cow, and all of Double Fine.

  1. BL Officially Dead

    I sold my copy, but that's because I'm mostly a PC gamer now. If Brutal Legend were to come out on PC it would have a happy home with all the Sacrifice fans, but it would also have to compete with AirMech, which is also trying to be a frantic Action RTS. Not that it wouldn't have trouble competing, AirMech has no metal. As long as Double Fine keeps producing awesome things, I'll keep buying them and The Metal will live on.
  2. I finally did what I said what I was going to do: pop open my Mad Catz TE-S fightstick and mod it, and now I need help! Before Brutal Legend swept me away, I was big on fighting games, and the recent release of Skullgirls was the last straw: Ps3 is the console for fighting games. So I finally opened up my stick to put a PCB in there that will allow it to work on Xbox 360 and Ps3 and PC! ...now there's just the matter of that art. Instead of having Ryu and Ken punching and overall manly, why not make this arcade stick METAL?! So I'm looking for hi res images related to Brutal Legend to slap on this stick! I'm handy with Photoshop, and will be using Lizania's TE-S Mockup Photoshop file to take care of the formatting. But what to put on it? This is where I need help. I need high resolution images related to Brutal Legend. As high as you can find. I'll take anything you think would be a good thing to put on the arcade stick. Here is what I'm thinking of so far: The Brutal Legend poster with Eddie and a Zaulia displaying true Action/RTS skill by riding around on a Metal Beast burning Tainted Coil minions despite being heavily outnumbered. This would make an exceptionally metal stick art, but I don't have a high res of it. I can't exactly scan the poster either because it's on my wall. Screen capture: Brutal Legend is not just about Eddie. It's about Ironheade. It was my true dream to make a stick with this image, but this one is not high res enough. Does anyone have the will and know how to capture a nicer image? http://www.blogcdn.com/www.joystiq.com/media/2009/10/eddie-and-ironheade-10122009-13.jpg This picture is special because it captures what Brutal Legend is all about! Making a big army and fighting along side them. Look at Eddie and Ironheade ready to teamwork the @#% out of some demons! That image looks big here, but it's actually teeny tiny in terms of resolution, so this doesn't work either. Those are just some examples. If anyone can help me find nice images to use that will make for suitable printing, I'll will use Photoshop to do the rest. Oh, and if you were curious about what I was using, I'm using Lizania's TE-S mockup Photoshop files to process the image.: http://shoryuken.com/forum/index.php?threads/the-new-official-arcade-stick-art-thread-imageboard-instructions-on-first-page.137307/
  3. Do you want Brutal Legend 2?

    We have an EA marketing representative in our midst!
  4. Do you want Brutal Legend 2?

    I think article explains best what went wrong. http://geek.pikimal.com/2012/03/27/mechanical-breakdown-brutal-legend/ Except Tim Schafer is absolutely correct, but I would have chosen different words. You don't play Brutal Legend like an RTS. Brutal Legend is an Action RTS, and you play an Action RTS like an Action RTS. Trying to go at it like Starcraft is just as effective as trying to play it like God of War: it's not. Oh, and the whole "just pause the game and read the Tour Book WITH YOUR EYES thing" didn't work out so good. So lesson learned: people are morons. A game like this needs a mandatory, single play tutorial that so flawless and perfect that a person can get online without ever touching the multiplayer.
  5. Well Brutal Legend and AirMech took two different approaches. BL combined Herzog Zwei with Sacrifice. AirMech seems to be proudly copying Herzog Zwei in every way imaginable.
  6. The game that inspired Brutal Legend's fantastic multiplayer, Herzog Zwei, has one more fan: Carbon Games, makers of Fat Princess. They are taking the field in a different direction by blatantly copying Herzog Zwei in every way possible. And that's AWESOME. If you sign up you can be a part of the alpha for it. I made an account immediately and I can't wait to play it. I wonder if Tim Schafer knows?
  7. Do YOU train new players?

    I trained people all the time when I was playing this. I've kinda abandoned console gaming since I have my nice new PC.
  8. Brutal Legend 2 MUST BE MADE!!!

    The Wii U would work AMAZINGLY with Brutal Legend 2.
  9. Check out Double Fine's new XBLA game... Trenched!!!

    I wonder how many mech designs you can save? I'm gonna need a whole lot of them. * A "Brutal Legend" mech with light guns but powerful defensive towers. * A "Timber Wolf" that's balanced. * An "Atlas" with all the powerful weapons and no towers * A "MORE DAKKA" mech with six machine guns
  10. Check out Double Fine's new XBLA game... Trenched!!!

    So every game developer in the universe must make their own console, or they're not allowed to make games? Nintendo might like that idea. No. They'd LOVE that. But Double Fine would go out of business. All they make is 3rd party games. Microsoft being the publisher simply means they paid for the game to be created.
  11. Trenched missions

    I speculate there iwll be single player missions, single player challenges, coop missions, and co op challenges. They already said there will be no competitive mode of any kind, unless there are leaderboards. I hope the game has lots and lots of single player and co op challenges. I got a little concerned when they said the story was 15 missions. Tower Defense challenges need no story, so after you beat it, there should be lots of story-less challenge missions.
  12. Check out this awesome Gamespot Preview/Interview!!!

    15 missions? I hope that's just the story mode and not the whole thing. Tower defense games tend to have lots of bonus missions, no story needed. Whatever, I have faith Trenched will be awesome.
  13. I hope a slot in Summer of Arcade gives Double Fine the success they've always deserved!
  14. Just got back from PAX East

    How was Treeeeenched? Did you shoot things while building and protecting turrets?!
  15. It should be soft and cuddly... with lots of firepower!
