I was lucky enough to talk to the cast and creators of Monlith’s upcoming action adventure RPG Middle Earth: Shadows of Mordor at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego. Myself and other members of media peppered Michael de Plater (Director of Design), Christian Cantamessa (Lead Writer), and Troy Baker (voice of Talion), with questions about the upcoming title which is set to launch on September 28th. Baker, who gamers might recognize from starring roles in The Last of Us and Bioshock: Infinite, had some interesting things to say about the voicing the game’s protagonist Talion and just how important Tolkien’s work is to nerds everywhere.
We all love The Behemoth’s smash hit Castle Crashers and have to admit that it has been entirely too long since the indi-darling gave us something new and absurd to laugh at (the diarrhea spewing deer still makes me laugh). I’m incredibly happy to share this video clip and press release from Behemoth about their upcoming title BattleBlock theater , enjoy!
PRESS RELEASE: We here at The Behemoth have been busy working on BattleBlock Theater! Tradeshow craziness has settled and we had time to attend a community event this past weekend. We had one of our classic arcade cabinets with a tradeshow build of BBT at the San Diego Asian Film Festival, which seemed to spark excitement.
For those you haven’t played a demo of BattleBlock Theater at any of the tradeshows, or who have been too busy to play to get the full outsider experience of the essence of the game, we’ve got a GEM for you!
Our latest Prisoner Update Video is a complete playthrough of one of our levels that you can find in our tradeshow build. If you’ve seen it before, hopefully you see something that you might’ve missed. If you haven’t, hope you enjoy it!
