if you love metal and video games im more than positive youve heard of this game!
heres the trailer for the game


Brütal Legend is a third person action game, the gameplay is similar to others in the genre. Eddie Riggs wields a battle axe he found at the beginning of the game as a primary melee weapon, while his second weapon is a guitar that he brought back with him from the real world. A forward attack sends Eddie attacking his enemies with the battle axe, while a wider slash attack takes out a larger quantity of enemies. Using the guitar (which has magical powers in the Heavy Metal Era), Eddie Riggs can play it to cast magic spells. The guitar is used as a ranged assault weapon, when wielded players can perform a guitar solo in response to your combo-styled button presses (similar to Johnny Whatever (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Whatever)). Attacks are based upon the combo pressed in, possible combos include a pyrotechnics display where flames come from the ground to burn your enemies. A third weapon is the Deuce, a drop-top coupe Eddie builds out of spare parts he finds. The Deuce can be used to run enemies over, but it is also used to traverse the large game world. Eddie can use his magic guitar to summon the Deuce. Ancient garages can be used to upgrade the Deuce with weapons and abilities. A large part of the gameplay involves controlling an army of metal-themed characters, such as...

Thick-necked Headbangers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Headbanging)
Roadies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roadie) that carry amps that blast killer feedback
"Runaways", girls who battle with flamethrowers while riding on Eddie and the other characters' shoulders, perhaps a nod to the all-girl rock band, The Runaways (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Runaways).
"Fire Barons" that trap enemies in rings of fire left by their motorbikes
Large-fisted Bouncers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bouncer_%28doorman%29). When Eddie defeats a type of character, they will then join his army. Each type has its own attributes. Simple commands such as "Defend" or "Attack" are issued to the army by use of the D-Pad (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D-Pad).

Ya, I've heard, with the voice of Jack Black and everything crazy. I saw this game in November in GameInformer (monthly issues, yes...dunno why).
Of course, this is a game worth waiting for but there are many more also.

This sounds INCREDIBLY intriguing.

I hope it doesn't suck, I really do.
