Will Stamper's voice work is what will make this game, as evidenced by the amazing opening cinematic.

Dan Paladin seems like a great guy. His sense of humor reminds me of Mega64, so that's cool.

He actually knows mega 64 and has appeared on their personal channels before, also Rocco went with him and the other behemoth guys to the Tokyo game show last year to promote castle crashers.

That seemed like a tough interview. But, stoked about the game nonetheless.

This dude sounds like he's jammed. Explains why he didn't actually answer any of the questions, and I still have no idea what the game is after he finished.

The funny thing is that Stamper's regular voice is funnier than any voice he ever tries to do.

this game sounds like it was designed by a people who were very high. And Dan isn't exactly helping. but looks fun, especially if you have a group of friends.

Fun fact: when Dan gets high he actually gets more articulate. Weird, right?

...or tired as shit from all the interviews, running around, trying to make sure the games are working, answering a million questions, autographs, etc. 
 
However, looking at the footage of BatteBlock Theater, I wouldn't disagree completely with "high as shit".

What I would give to work in either the Newgrounds or Behemoth offices and just bullshit with Tom Fulp and Dan Paladin for hours on end.

Really dislike the style of humour in Castle Crashers...this looks like much of the same unfortunately.  
 
I'm sure the fans will love it though.

Ummm.  I cant help but notice he said there's no other game like this, so on and so forth, but is it not almost exactly like Little big planet's campaign? 
 
Looks like it.
