Looks like every Double Fine game will be on Steam with this. Surprised to see that it's coming to Steam seeing how it was published by EA.

I wonder if it's the same situation as Costume Quest/Stacking where Double Fine retained an option on PC publishing rights (from what I recall)

Maybe the RTS segments will be a little more tolerable with mouse and keyboard?

Actually no, you spent most or all of your time sort of controlling Jack Black above the battlefield, so maybe not. Man that game was a letdown.

Ooooh, tempted to double-dip if it's a decent port. In my top-three of greatest games of all time list.

Note that Double Fine games are also available, DRM-free on gog.com

While I suck at RTS, I enjoyed Brutal Legend and liked how they turned a Metal fanbase and appreciation into an army.
Will prob. get it from gog.com if it gets on there~

Honestly if you're curious just go play the demo, it doesn't get any better.

Double Fine should REALLY play Guilty Gear 2 before putting this out. While not quite the same game, there's a ton of stuff that they could learn to improve their RTS with a controller experience. The main one adding a map where you can order troops around on.

Though I expect this to be just a straight port and basically unplayable with mouse / kb.

You'll only be disappointed if you don't get what you're expecting. I'm guessing about 90% of the backlash against Brutal Legend was a result of misleading marketing.

I knew what I was buying, and I f*cking loved it. The RTS segments weren't perfectly suited to the control setup they built, but the rest of the game more than made up for it. The storytelling, soundtrack, voice-acting, world-building, driving and hack-and-slashing was all top-notch IMO.

As much as I understand why an isometric view makes more sense, one of the things I loved most was leading the fight from the trenches with my armies all around me. Seeing Eddie throw the horns above his head as he charged into a fight surrounded by headbangers... beautiful *tear*.

I can't say I cared for the RTS segments, however I had enough fun with the rest of the game to see it through to the end, and will happily snap up a belated PC version if the price is right.

It's hardly mystifying. The RTS segments were godawful, and brought the whole game down.

I don't think it's underrated. Presentation is fantastic, but the actual game goes from mediocre to terrible. If you like the theme (and I love it) it's still worth playing, if you don't it's better to stay away.

I liked BL. Not quite the Tim Schafer classic I had in mind, but I enjoyed it nontheless. The RTS bits are just a small portion of the game and I found they hardly detract from the overall experience.

I knew it turned into an RTS, I just didn't know the "open world" was going to be small and boring, and that the RTS portions were going to be boring and control awfully. Not to mention the hack and slashing wasn't even as good as something as bad as dynasty warriors.

I couldn't get enough of the open-world to be honest. Loved tearing around the place in my car, finding all the Bound Dragons, Hidden Metal and Lightning Plugs, doing the point-to-point races, etc.

The RTS stuff definitely could've used refining, notably the controls; I had quite a bit of trouble sending specific groups. As for the hack'n'slashing, I was probably overzealous calling it top-notch. In the context of the game, I liked it though.

Just for the occasion:

Your taste in gaming from what I've gathered over the past year is quite shocking compared to my own tastes, so there is a high chance that I will enjoy Brutal Legend for what it is.

This is the game that single-handedly put a stop to me ever going on media blackouts in anticipation of a new game. First time I genuinely got so excited about a game that I decided to completely ignore absolutely everything that was released about it, because I was so sure it was going to be incredible.

Rushed down on day 1 to pick up my pre-order. Few hours later I'd given up and returned the game.

From now on I make sure to know basically everything about any game before I purchase it.

Seriously: I don't get the RTS sequences hate.

If anything, at least for me, it was a very grateful surprise that kept the game from being an open-world hack'n'slash. It made something good way better. Awesome game.

Not sure if I'll double dip, though. I don't do that much.
