Brutal Legend is involved in one mighty legal battle
On one hand Activision want to delay the game and sue Double Fine, on the other Double Fine want to sue Activision. It's all very messy. Still, good news for Double Fine, a tentative ruling in LA has denied the movement to stop the release of Brutal Legend. The legal dispute will take place on August 6th where it's believed that Activision are..
To be honest, we have no interest in law or the issues of copyright
However, following Activision's lawsuit against Double Fine regarding Brutal Legend comes an interesting snippet of information. Namely that according to DF Activision dropped the game because they wouldn't agree to it becoming a Guitar Hero sequel. Ooft. Anyway, apparently Double Fine have issued a counter-suit against Activision..

Good grief, this is why we're not excited over Brutal Legend
We hate metal, we hate Jack Black and we don't have a strange affinity Tim Schafer like everyone else seems to. Thus there's not much going for Brutal Legend in our opinion. Alas, different strokes for different folks and all, so we'll grit our teeth and write this piece about the pompous sleaze that is Download Festival. EA made lots of..
Yahoo are reporting that Brutal Legend developer Double Fine have received a lawsuit from Activision to "stop the release" of the game

What do you need to make your heavy metal video game even better? A better initial idea? Well, yes, that - or the Prince Of Darkness himself Ozzy Osbourne
Ozzy Osbourne will be playing an unnamed character in Brutal Legend who looks a lot like Ozzy Osbourne. Funny that. We hope he can manage to read his script ok.
After seeing this trailer, everyone is going Brutal Legend crazy
Except us. Here in the PushSquare offices we watched gormlessly as we saw our worst nightmares unfold in front of us. A God Of War clone, starring Jack Black, designed around the symbolism found on heavy metal record covers. Good grief. We've decided to sleep through the entirety of "Rocktober". shudder Heavy metal shudder..
EA have just announced that Tim Schafer's upcoming rock video game Brutal Legend will be available this coming October, which from this point forward will be dubbed Rocktober
Get it? Europeans will get the game on the 16th with the US getting it 3 days earlier on the 13th. We're still not convinced; we hate rock/heavy metal.
