Weirdly enough my cable for the first time allowed me to have G4 today. The reairing of the Brutal Legend special must be why.

While Jimmy Fallon is an idiot and one of the least funny people alive, I watched his show tonight purely for Tim. Sadly, it was all stuff Tim has talked about a hundred times before, so it wasnt really worth it. I guess it was cool to see Tim being way funnier then Jimmy.

4. a man of brutal...portions 10 years, 12 months ago

tim is way funnier than falon… so is a dead mormon…

5. TheBeastWithin6 10 years, 12 months ago

13. Mykal 10 years, 12 months ago

Heads up some of the combo moves that are spoke of are in the demo, just have to experiment a bit.

14. exterminater999 10 years, 12 months ago

mykal, can you tell us some of the combos please

15. Mykal 10 years, 12 months ago

Well they are related to the ax outside the A X A, you can still pull it off with just knocking the guy away(once into another druid’s head with a blood splattered result or just knocked away) is done by flip the movement stick from down to up while holding A. Doing it with X tries to slide but stops, so that may be related to a move that is unlocked later. The unknown combos is moving the movement stick in different directions while pressing A in different ways. Still don’t know how to do the swing slice which acts like a spinning slice goes threw one body the ax hits the ground then Eddies feet hit the air or opponent. Wish I could explain it better, but I barely have it figured out myself.

heh i found a way to kill the demo boss in two hits. when its toungs are stuck to the ground use earthshaker twice to cut off all three toungs at once
