Piss on Punx in "Metalocalypse: Dethgame"

If I know anything about lovers of Metal-related irony, it's that they absolutely never get sick of it. Nothing proves this more than Adult Swim's "Metalocalypse." Not content to let "Brutal Legend" steal their thunder in the Metal game genre, Konami and Frozen Codebase have unleashed a pre-alpha build of "Metalocalypse: Dethgame" upon the world of SDCC. It seems that the reaction to very early build has turned out to be a bit lukewarm:

After you finish this first batch while learning how to perform regular and heavy attacks and pick up a club and beat some people down, you head down a hallway and into an opening where giant smashers are smacking into a pair of conveyor belts. On either side of this room are spinning cylinders with blades attached, and if you or someone else runs into it, they (or you) are chopped to pieces. You can of course pick people up and ram them into the machine as a contextual kill, but it's not as cool as it sounds.

If that doesn't do it for you, you can always knock someone down, kick them numerous times in the groin and then pee on their face as they try to block your yellow stream with their hands. (see below)

Although it stands to reason that you shouldn't let anyone see your "pre-alpha" build of anything for fear of generating negative buzz, I have a feeling that the legion of "Metalocalypse" completists will scoop this up anyways. That is of course, unless they're too stoned to realize that the game came out, which is a distinct possibility.
