    I just grabbed the entire demo. I’m encoding it now, but it won’t be done for a few hours.

    the anti christ is coming and the rise of the roman empire is here! So if you people want to whoreship satin be my guest. If you want to piss off god go head, I’m not stopping you. I will just make sure I’m out of the way when it happens.

    It’s not like I didn’t warn you or anything.=)

    The “whoreship satin” sounds like something out of a sci-fi porn film…

    tomrrow should be the day when the roman empire is reborn. So I guess you will have your wish soon enough.

    this is where I step out of the way and watch things happen.

    So who are we watching out for? Italians or Catholics?

    Roman could refer to either really.

    Roman empire eh? Does that mean their gods are coming too? Because some of those peeps seem like good fun to hang out with…

    Not enamoured by either game, TBH. Shift suffers from an *awful* handling model and Brutal Legend just feels a bit… off

    I burned the US bugger to disk. :)

    What console are you guys going to get Brutal Legend for, im leaning towards Ps3 at the moment

    I thought the Brutal Legend demo was awesome, but I’m not sure if I was enjoying the presentation or the actual gameplay. Either way I was enjoying it with several genuine lol moments.

    @Rhythm – Shift needs to be played in the in-car view for best effect. Handling can feel a little jittery but the control tweaks allows gives you a lot of options. Personally I’m loving the full game.
