Unfortunately, The Behemoth decided that the game has finally reached an age where they can start sunsetting a few of the more costly/time-consuming features.  The first of these is the ability to share created levels online.  Come June 25th, players will lose access to playlists and one-off community levels.  You can still use the game's Level Editor feature locally, but the game's marketplace of bespoke user creations will be gone.

BattleBlock Theater Announces PC Release DateTally Callahan

Released just over a year ago on XBox Live Arcade, the Steam version of BattleBlock Theater will introduce some small additions/tweaks, such as the ability to immediately switch weapons, Steam Trading, Steam Trading Cards, Steam Workshop support, and yes, the game-breakingly imbalanced fatter cats. Fatter cats will definitely give the PC version a major, major edge over the XBLA version, mark my words.

The obvious recommendations below are Gears of War and the Halo games. Because, duh, right? Charlie Murder is also worth a look, especially at that steep of a discount. Inspired by River City Ransom and bearing some resemblance to a grunge version of Scott Pilgrim, Charlie Murder is a brawler that revolves around the metal band trying to put a stop to evil activities carried out by rival band Gore Quaffer. Hard to say no, right?

Castle Crashers is a stone cold classic of this generation, selling by the bucket load and also being excellent to play, as our review will attest.  At only $7.49/£4.99 it is a bargain.

Mmm, donuts. This past Friday was National Donut Day in America. Yeah, we missed it too, so don't feel too bad. Since every day is donut day in real life, The Behemoth has decided that BattleBlock Theater is going to let you have a belated snack. And it's calorie-free, too! From now until June 13th, anyone who owns BattleBlock can sign in and watch as a special prisoner named Donut pops out of the vault. Easy!
