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 ...

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...

A history of BattleBlock Theater, from start to finish

For many Behemoth fans, the wait for BattleBlock Theater has felt like an eternity. In some ways, it really has been, as these past four or five years have been approximately half of a console's lifecycle. But what went on during all that t...

Battleblock Theater is Battlebloody Brilliant

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...
