Because I'm lame.

It's times like these I wish I had an xbox 360

Hmm, that name reminds me of someone. I can't quite put my finger on it.

Instead of fixing the voting system, we added moderators and that DID fix the shovelware problem but it also hurt the incentive to vote. It would be nice if the mod activity rewarded / punished the users who already chipped in.

Man, the mechanics of running a portal blows my mind, that all made perfect sense but I'm not confident I ever would have thought of it on my own.

Tom, is it true Battleblock Theater is just the Alien Hominid PDA games but with more art and elements and other stuff?

I really want to get BBT. But I have to wait for that PSN release.

Assuming it's going to happen eventually. I still love you guys at The Behemoth either way.

It's the spiritual successor to PDA games in that it grew out of what started with PDA games. It wasn't built off the PDA Games code but classic PDA stuff makes an appearance, like the boats, self-terminations and some audio cameos. If you liked PDA Games then you'll definitely like BBT.

We get plenty of feedback from people that helps reveal the problems, although other times we're completely aware of the problems for years and just never manage to prioritize the fixes. :(

My only concern is it seems like a heavily multiplayer-focused game, and most of my friends doesn't seem that interested, or don't own an xbox.

I would love to get BattleBlock Theater but I don't currently have money to spend on frivolous, absurd and...awesome games such as that.

I stopped voting because voting fairly isn't as rewarding now; my votes always seem extremely outnumbered against a wave of 5's or 0's.

I have a Playstation 3, kinda wish it had a PSN release.

Well *cracks knuckles* I haven't Purple Dived in a long time, so I'm going to do that now. I'm a harsh voter, so maybe the Obits will get a little thicker.

I encourage you all to vote honestly. Not mindlessly 'five everything.

Tom! Thanks for this game! :) I can't wait to play it . Also, I know this sounds a bit weird, or whack, but it would make Newgrounds literally 10000 times better. Can you add an Instant Message tab to every window ? So we can IM our Newgrounds friends while we're playing games, or just hanging out in the forums ? :) That would be so amazing , and I've been thinking about that for a while. Thanks if you add it to your "to-do list". :)

Word, and start at the bottom of the pile. Sometimes I get lazy and pick whatever I see, which is usually around the top of the list. Backups like this suck, and I feel obligated to add anti-constipation medicine to the situation.

Christ...I've only gone through 54 submissions and I feel exhausted.

I've never seen the Underjudge's this backed up before.
