Cats, poop, and repeated failure to communicate

Jordan and I have been having an absolute blast with BattleBlock Theater. Playing it in two-player amplifies the humor of the game to no small degree. The jokes are funnier because you have someone to laugh at them with, but that's just a ...

We have become entertainment for cats

Boba Fett, Blood Dragon, and Battleblock Theater

Hey gang! Unfortunately, we didn't do a live Destructoid Show today, but we still did one. And it's probably a little bit weird.  The big sad news is that Disney carried out Order 66 on LucasArts. Sadder still, Star Wars 1313 was goin...

 
BattleBlock Theater
After nearly five years of development time, BattleBlock Theater is finally here. Following the success of Castle Crashers, it would stand to reason that The Behemoth has some big shoes to fill, and for many, the suspense is killer. So I'll just cut to the chase here: it was worth the wait if you're a platforming fan.   read

BattleBlock Theater is all about being cool

A hi-res, hand-drawn, downloadable game in which cute characters are imprisoned by maniacal cats who force them to act in lethal plays for their amusement. Sounds like a game from The Behemoth to me! I played Battleblock Theater at PAX this weekend and was so impressed I made sure it got a Destructoid Game of the Show nomination. It was just that much silly, outrageous, beautifully violent fun!   read
