Not very long usually, but they often have very annoying games that either require too much effort or just don't seem to work very well so tbh I don't do every single thing that pops up.

I tried to do today's "Yellow Submarine" ones, had no idea what was going on, turned away.  At least I got the basic do nothing points.

Yeah pretty much, didn't bother with that one myself.

Anyone have any luck with the Gamepass app quest? No matter what I do it won’t register “checked out new games”.

How much do you enjoy real time strategy? This may make or break your enjoyment.

Not much

It may not be for you than, I enjoyed the game, but it introduces an RTS type element over an hour into the game and for me personally it felt really out of place. Like I enjoyed everything else, but that portion of the game just didn't fit.

I'd say for $5, you should also weigh how much you like Heavy Metal, as it has a killer soundtrack and some great cameos. I hated the RTS aspect and quit playing at that point, but BL will always rank high in my mind due to introducing me to Skeletonwitch and Racer X.

Take a look at this track listing! Omfg I need to headbang just thinking about it!

It is totally worth $5. Even if you don’t like rts you could play it until then enjoy the humor and music and quit out and get your Taco Bell Crunchwrap supreme value out of it and it doesn’t get flushed down the toilet later, you can revisit it when possible.

I could have sworn I played Brutal Legend on PS3 but I don't see it in my trophies. I did start maybe a year or so ago on XBox but didn't get too far.

The answer to part 1 is Red Rabbit and the answer to part 2 is John Terence Kelly

Looks like their forums keep track of the quests and help solve them.

No matter what kind of disposable income you have, save your $5.

RTS with heavy metal themes to be clear. I thought it was a good time.

Yeah, and I really wanted to like it.  Tim Schaeffer and Jack Black should have been a much better result than it turned out.  It wasn't even all that funny.  A fair amount of decent music though, but not as much as you would think given the theme.

A hero right here.  Little did I know the "computer screen" image was not the clue, but that it needed to be clicked on.  Again, no real info to go off of.  Thanks for the help and the link

I got Brutal Legend right when it came out years back, and I was pretty disappointed with it for the price I paid. I might have been ok with it for $5. It was not at all how I thought it would be from playing the demo.

 

The RTS stuff it introduces later is not very good. I beat literally every single RTS section using the same strategy, and a lot of the units they give you aren't even worth bothering with. The game would have been much better as a standard action RPG like Fable. I actually thought that's what it was going to be until it sprang the RTS junk on me.

 

There's also not much variety to the side missions. There's a couple of unique side missions, but everything else repeats over and over. Also, from what I can recall, the story is super predictable.

 

It definitely was never worth its launch MSRP, buuuuuut for $5... maybe?

The only time I played Brutal Legend was when Tim Shafer was offering to play multiplayer via a twitter post he made (of course never having played it, he owned me). Other then that, never really went back to play it. It was interestingly different, wouldn't mind seeing a sequel or remake/remaster. Got it for $5 back in the day when Best Buy had it on sale.

Ok enough dumping on my beloved brutal legend. It had it all, double fine humor, open world, heavy metal, car cruising, action and rts. It was pretty much setup to anger some people who didn’t like aspects of that but to each their own.

I got and redeemed both of mine with no issue.  Although for a digital product it took a couple of days.

For those with Apple Arcade, Skybox Labs new game Stela is out. Curious to see how our Halo Infinite dev handles a Limbo-seque side scroller. Out on Xbox One on the 17th.
