Default Brutal Legend is coming to PC

And you can preorder it for $15

http://store.steampowered.com/app/225260/


So...I don't know much about this game, since I don't own any consoles I never bothered to find anything about it, all I know from looking at the wikipedia page is it has a frickin' awesome soundtrack (metalhead here)...I'm thinking of buying it just for the soundtrack alone.

I think it's safe to say that nobody cares about this game.

Bought it 3 years ago for $10.
While I enjoyed it, I don't think I would buy it again just for PC.

I think it's safe to say that you're over-generalizing. Speak for yourself, bud.

I own it for the PS3, but I still haven't played it. I've always heard good things about the game (it was made by Double Fine after all), so I would probably consider buying it again if the graphics were souped up a bit for the PC release.

I played the demo on PS3 and liked it quite a bit; it was fun with cool tunes. I would grab this for $5.

I enjoyed it at least. You need to be a bit of a metal fan, and if you are it is pretty awesome. Most of it isn't so much about the gameplay as it is simply the story, and it is one sweet story

I had it on the 360, and enjoyed it.

It had a pretty cool RTS/Moba(?) game mode, where two teams with rock stages fought over resources in the middle of the map, with the result to destroy the other's stage through buying different kinds of troops. Meanwhile, you could fly around the entire map independantly of your 'troops', and had your own spells and abilities.

If it gains a good community on the PC, I'd buy it to play that multiplayer aspect...pretty fun.

While I don't like Metal music, this game has so much style and charm. I picked up the Xbox version for $5 at Gamestop. I dunno how far into I am, but I'm enjoying it a lot. Definitely one of the most fun and original games I've played in a good while.

I hope they at least beef up the engine a bit besides just adding 1080p support. Though I still plan to get it.
