Gamers, you have a lot of gaming to do. You might as well break the key off in the lock of the door to your living room. Two games that are guaranteed to be some of this year’s biggest releases are out today: Brutal Legend and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Get comfy.
Brutal Legend, for both Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, is an action-adventure game like you’ve never seen. The game revolves around the character Eddie Rigs (voiced by Jack Black), a roadie who gets transported to another dimension, completely inspired by the album artwork of Heavy Metal bands. Eddie becomes a hero, leading humans against a plethora of terrifying overlords, using three weapons: a battle axe, his Flying V guitar capable of casting nasty spells, and his trusty Hot Rod. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, a Playstation 3 exclusive, is already getting lumped with candidates for Game of the Year by critics. Sequel to Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, the game is basically Tomb Raider without the hours wasted trying to get a great look at Lara Croft’s ass. The story revolves around another historical mystery: Marco Polo’s mysterious voyage from China takes center stage. Check it out on it’s official site, here.
