GameDaily.com has revealed the complete track listing for the Brütal Legend video game, whcih will be available for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system and the PlayStation computer entertainment system on October 13 in North America and on October 16 in Europe.

"This soundtrack took years to put together as we wanted to represent every genre of metal, and also have the perfect music for every epic moment in the game," Tim Schafer, president of Double Fine Productions development studio, tells GameDaily.com. "It's designed to be loved by metal fans, and for those who are not, it will either convert them or make their heads explode ... or both."

"What can I say?," Emily Ridgeway, Brütal Legend's music director, adds. "It's metal. It's the best. It'll kick your fucking teeth in."

Brütal Legend is a third-person action game rich in combat, imagery and storytelling, delivering lighter-flicking fun sure to melt your face off.

Brütal Legend tells the tale of Eddie Riggs, played by Jack Black. The ultimate roadie, Eddie is the first person anyone calls when they need guitars tuned or stages rigged, and has a love for hot rods and a photographic memory for every heavy metal album cover, and the lyrics those albums contained. One night, a stage accident knocks Eddie unconscious, and he awakens in a world that looks very strange yet oddly familiar, a world where every heavy metal album cover and lyric Eddie knows has come to life, and where the evil emperor Doviculus and his demon army, The Tainted Coil, have enslaved the last remaining humans. When an oppressed people request Eddie's knowledge of modern warfare, he pulls from his own experience in the only occupation he's ever had, a roadie for a heavy metal band, and under his command, this barbaric force of hot-rods, Marshall stacks, leather, and chrome will bring this ancient world into the age of metal.

A trailer for Brütal Legend, featuring the voice and likeness of BLACK SABBATH vocalist Ozzy Osbourne as The Guardian Of Metal, can be viewed below.

I concur, good sir! Metal Gear Batman Cell is a veritable badass of a game, and that's just from the demo!

Also, the Gallente are still a bunch of dronefucking pricks.

Put a brick in a sock and use it as a makeshift flail and go to Nintendo's local headquarters until they patch it? :D

True...But never fear!

You can still hit the bastard with the naked brick! No sock needed!

All that matters is you'll eventually be playing Fatal Fury and listening to Terry Bogard's amusingly broken English.

Wave 20 of Horde on Gears of War 2 is so incredibly difficult. Me and my mate spent ages last night on it and only once did we come close to winning.

The best map to finish Horde on is Jacinto. I finished all 50 waves the first weekend I had the game, with four other players, on that map on Hardcore difficulty. How? There is a cool little tower section with a grenade spawn, where you can barricade yourselves in with a couple of cleverly planted shields dropped by Maulers. It's still a bit tough and you have to work as a team (you also have to do potential suicide runs for ammo), but we got through it over the course of two days.

Pavilion is also good for Horde, as there is also a section where you can barricade yourselves in with a shield.

We were on Hail and there were only two of us playing on Hardcore. Once I've got some money and can afford a Gold Xbox live membership, we'll be teaming up with a few more friends. Horde's a fun mode.
