How can I achieve a metallic look to 3D text?

I'm trying to emulate the look seen here -

I've got the 3D text itself but I'm apparently not texturing/lighting it properly to look the same.

What's the best way to approach something like this? A sample scene would be appreciated if at all possible.

Hi,
this is more about reflecting the environment that about an actual texture. I think would start here:
