i don't know if anyone here subscribes to EA on Youtube but check this video out --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFWM8sUkd_E

O.O they're making fun of ACII as well as other games! i liek Jack Black, i think he's funny. this is no doubt becasue of EA. i liek EA as well but what made them think that they can do this?

They must be really scared that ACII is going to be better then their games so they have to make fun of them i guess?

feel free to comment on this:

I thought it was kind of funny. I think it would have been great if Hitman Blood Money hadn't come out until this year because in that game you literally do dress up as a bird and kill people. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

I just find it sad that the best dis they have for ACII is dressing up like a bird and climbing buildings. seriously? i could say all you do in Brutal Legend is swing your axe around at people. Both games are much more then that. and IMO (and im sure everybody elses) ACII is 1000% better than ACI (i did mean to put 1000 BTW)

I think you're taking that video a bit too seriously (no offense).

Doesn't bother me they could have said worse. I'm getting both games anyway although there's not doubt that AC2 will be the best!

hey no offense.. but you think im taking it a bit to seriously? you have a counter in your sig that counts down to the exact second of when ACII os coming out >.>

the fact that they're dissing ACII doesn't bother me as much as the fact that EA thinks they can get away with making fun of other games. all that ever does is make people angry.

The signature part is completely irrelevant to his view on the video.

EA made a little joke at MGS4 when Battlefield: Bad Company was coming out.
Its just a joke...people need to get a sense of humor back.

Jack Black looks way better like Eddie Rigs. But I guess that's part of the joke.

A little teasing is fine all in good fun. I'm a little mad at EA for their 'marketing ploy' for Dante's Inferno at ComicCon this year (with the whole 'commit an act of lust with a booth babe' BS), but Jack Black can do no wrong. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

And hey, if you're upset that he said that ACII involves dressing up like a bird and climbing buildings, then what do you think people waiting for Uncharted 2? XD When it comes to fun-loving insults, 'Uncharted Poo' is a little worse than what we got. ;P

Well they're not going to say:

"Well what about ACII?"

"Actually that game looks kickass, and I will probably not buy Brutal Legend because of it."

I really don't see the problem in it, I love AC and I still make fun of it all the time, besides Brutal Legend looks like an awesome game, I'm glad they aren't intimidated about maybe losing sales being so close to MW2, AND have the guts to come up and make fun of other games, shows how hilarious they are lol, like Zombieland, I just saw that moviehttp://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif it was awesome!(But I'm not getting off topichttp://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif)

Well.. EA is just trying to divert gamer's attention towards their game. (Bad marketing strategy!) BUt making fun of ACII wont help Brutal Legend sales.. no matter what EA says or does.. ACII will be one of the best games of the year. EA cant stop that.. or change that. And Jack Black.. hes just a puppet.

They are just wasting time and money.. it would be better if they would have hired a better VGame testing department for EA sports.

I suggest, EA should start making good games.. instead of making fun of Good games.

What you don't see is what happened after that. Soap is on the roof with a sniper rifle. He gun down Eddie Riggs, Nathan appears with a rifle and adds a few rounds into his body. While he's on the ground crying in pain, who should appear but Ezio who gives a hidden blade right to the groin. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Jokes aside, Brutal legend seems fun, too bad i don't have any consoles... T.T *AC2/Uncharted 2/Brutal legend... Gone...*

I'm not sure I agree with you guys, I've played the demo and seen clips of the game and as far as I can say, Schafer and Black have made a really awesome game that could compare with AC2 and MW2, Brutal Legend is one of my top 3 games and it comes out tommorrow!

I seriously doubt that a beat em up game with some driving and flying elements is going to beat AC2 or even Uncharted 2.

I mean, as of right now Uncharted 2 is being called one of the best single player experiences in a video game to date.

MW2 will have AMAZING single player too. I love the COD single players but the mplayers are all the same.

I think it's fun and in the spirit of their game. The game itself looks fun and in a Tenacious D spirit...

Anyway, I hate Jack Black, so...that kinda nullifies much interest I ever had in Brutal Legend...
Still, I'm downloading the demo. A game with reviews that good isn't worth ignoring just 'cause the title character's actor is a tool and I hate the entire heavy metal scene (and rock stars in general).

Knowing that a game about a metal roadie going around killing things (I haven't researched the game, evidently) isn't something likely to be taken seriously (unlike just about anything with aliens in it), Tim Schaefer made it a very cartoony-looking game. Kind of like how Watchmen isn't written with kids in mind despite (OYFG!!!!!) the fact that it's basically a comic.

I think he was talking about how Watchmen is as much of a chidren's book as Brutal Legend is a childrens game. so no, he was using reverse logic to say its not.

Technically tho if you want to teach your children about real life then Watchmen (more the movie) is good :P

BTW back on topic plz!

I thought it was kinda funny. I don't know much about Brutal Legend, but it looks snazzy enough to have me give a second glance.

It's all just some competitive fun. No need to take it so seriously. Plus, how awesome would that be though, if Ezio actually DID dress up like a bird? Jump on people in some big, fluffy bird suit. Or freak them out by jumping out of the shadows, looking like a chicken.
