I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

Godzilla fans enjoyed the recent film, but will they feel the same way about the new video game?

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

The Behemoth Adds Bears and Shuffle Blocks to Battleblock Theater

Posted on Tuesday, December 27 @ 12:37:48 Eastern by

Never mind that Castle Crashers is still a ton of fun to play with some co-op buddies, I'm ready for the platforming madness known as Battleblock Theater. The Behemoth just makes it harder to wait with this drip-feed updating.

The latest, titled The Bear and the Block, features a new controllable character and a new platforming element called the Shuffle Block. The Behemoth devblog explains:

During the beginning stages of game inception, the shuffle block was one of the first blocks ever made! It was also the first moving block we created! Its purpose was to supply variation in our levels, to take a static level and make it an ever-changing level.

When this block type is featured, it will make sure each experience is different every time!

The Shuffle Block likes its space. But it will not infringe on yours. Though this block is completely chaotic, sometimes you can get it to do what you want. How that works is that you must occupy the space opposite of where you want it to go. So if you want the block to move right, you’ve got to take up the space on the left side! With a little coaxing, it might work. Who knows, the block might move up instead of left!

If you have no idea what I'm ranting and raving about, check out GameRevolution's PAX Prime impressions of the upcoming XBLA title from the minds at The Behemoth.
