The lights are on
We leap and slide our way through the cooperative platformer to offer a glimpse of what to expect in the new game from The Behemoth.
Fans of games like Super Mario, Rayman, and Super Meat Boy should not miss out on the recently released BattleBlock Theater. I found the game to be one of the best platformers in years, so I sat down with executive editor Andrew Reiner and GI intern Louis Garcia for a quick session of cooperative levels.
Check out the episode below and decide if BattleBlock Theater is for you.

You certainly get a ton of bang for your buck. Just so well polished and put together. Gonna be one of the best Arcade games we see this year, for sure.
This is one of the few games that are comin gout this year (that we know of) that im excited about. Too bad i have to wait until school is over to play it :/
I'm playing the heck out of this game right now. It's awesome! Similarly to Super Meat Boy, Battleblock Theater is an addictive platformer that's oozing with charm. The narrator in Bastion ain't got nothin' on the narrator in this game! :P
Single player is awesome, co-op is better. If you got a friend, drag him with you to play this game.
Wonderful Test Chamber! I won one of the codes for this game from GI and think it's such a fun game.
I tried out the demo and loved it. Once I am finished with exams I will be playing the crap out of this game! I can't wait to see what The Behemoth comes up with next, too bad we will probably have to wait another decade to play it.
once i get some microsoft points, i'll definitely buy this, the demo was very fun
Reiner, if it makes you feel better, it's been too damn hot in NC the past couple of days ;)
I am so glad I got BBT.
It looks like it's the year of the platformer, which makes me sad that I failed to invest in this generation of consoles. Damn being poor. This also happens to be one of my favorite game genre.
Looks fun, I still haven't beaten Castle Crashers, but I really enjoyed my time with that game :)
Looks awesome! Always up for some co-op platforming!
This looks great! I played the demo but did not have enough MSP at the time to buy it. I will be getting this game soon though. Great look at the game. You guys helped me decide to get this even more. By the way, this Test Chamber is not in the Test Chamber Hub. I had to find it by searching for it. Good Test Chamber.
