Tim Schafer has made some cult-classic video games over the past decade, with amazing creativity and humor in his catalog: Grim Fandango (consisting of a mystery in a society of grim reapers), The Secret of Monkey Island (a hilarious pirate-themed adventure), and the award-winning Psychonauts (a summer camp involving psychic powers and a plot to take over the world), even though none of those was a big seller upon release. Four years after the hilarious and highly praised Psychonauts, fans are treated to Schafer's latest project: Brutal Legend, a game set in a fantasy land inspired by heavy metal. Yet despite a vast mythology, a great soundtrack, and hilarious dialogue featuring Jack Black, the overall game delivers more annoyance than enjoyment.

"Hey, Shawn!"

"What's happenin', Mike?"

"That's funny. I'm actually here to chat about the What's Happenin's. I'm writing one on the comedy troupe Broken Lizard, playing Iowa City's Englert Theatre on November 7, and I thought we could discuss the layout. I know we don't have a lot of space."

"Well, you do tend to ramble in those things."
