After receiving a notice of the impending appearance at the 11th hour, we reported Friday that BrÃ¼tal Legend Producer and metal mastermind Tim Schafer would appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, perhaps to help the latter keep up with his promise to treat major new video game releases with all the respect and reverence as new music, movies, and such.
For those who missed it, the video is now available on the show’s website, but why travel there when you can watch it right here? Now we get to find out whether Schafer spent more time talking about BrÃ¼tal Legend or pulled pork:
So BrÃ¼tal Legend, 321; BBQ pulled pork, 0.
Interesting to note that Schafer is credited on the box; are we moving toward that bridging of the gap where creators are credited that has given rise to controversy in the past?
My favorite part: “‘Did you just make this game up so you can meet all your favorite heroes in heavy metal?’ ‘…yeah!'”
