Brutal Legend Walkthrough

We're hard at work here at Mahalo on the Brutal Legend Walkthrough page.  The game seems pretty fun - Jack Black voices a roadie who winds up in a hellscape known as "Heavy Metal."  Apparently the game combines action, racing and Real-Time Strategy but all the clips I've seen look essentially like an action game, albeit one with a relatively open world to explore.

It's rare to find a really enjoyable, playable game with a big sense of humor.  (That first "Sam and Max" game was kind of fun, I suppose, and there's always the "Monkey Island" series.)  Usually, in-game "comedy" is done "Duke Nukem"-style.  Little repeated one-liners that play whenever you do a certain move or something.  Weak.

Anyway, Mitchell is working on the walkthrough right now, as he plays through the game, and we've got lots of videos on there as well. 

It's a great intro to the game if you're considering picking it up.

Louisiana Justice of the Peace: "I'm not racist...As evidence, consider that I let black people use my bathroom."

A Louisiana justice of the peace said he refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple out of concern for any children the couple might have. Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish, says it is his experience that most interracial marriages do not last long.

"I'm not a racist. I just don't believe in mixing the races that way," Bardwell told the Associated Press on Thursday. "I have piles and piles of black friends. They come to my home, I marry them, they use my bathroom. I treat them just like everyone else."

American South, you've done it again!
