oh boy! what a dissapointment
In a recent interview between MTV's Multiplayer blog and Tim Schafer of Doublefine Studios, it was revealed that the aforementioned developers would not be presenting BrÃ¼tal Legend at next week's E3. The decision was reportedly prompted by today's shareholder approval of the Activision/Blizzard merger.
It's mildly disappointing that we won't be hearing any new information on BrÃ¼tal Legend, but E3 hasn't really been about the fans for a long time. What makes this tidbit all the more interesting is the latter half of the statement, in which Schafer reveals the lack of a brutal presence at E3: "We're not going to be showing at E3, but soon after that we hope."
Hmm, what other large gaming event occurs shortly after E3? I vaguely remember something about pennies or something. Granted, this is all rampant speculation on my part, but if Doublefine decided to show off BrÃ¼tal Legend at PAX rather than E3, then they know on which side their bread is buttered. What better way to debut your game than at a convention actually held for gamers rather than an exclusive media event?
