We love the Xbox Live Arcade Service (fanboy placation
: we love the PlayStation Network and WiiWare too), but it's a well-known fact that there are a number of hurdles a finished game has to clear
before it can find its way onto the imponderable internets
. One of said hurdles, labeled "the rating process" is actually three-hundred feet tall, covered in flaming, poison-coated spikes, and surrounded by a moat filled with bull sharks in mating season. Metaphorically speaking, of course.
Thankfully, in an act of incredible vaulting prowess, Behemoth's upcoming
multiplayer beat-'em-up Castle Crashers recently cleared said hurdle
, receiving a decisive "Teen" rating (the German judges, obviously confused and unimpressed, gave the effort a 7.5). There are a number of other hoops the adorable brawler
must jump through before attaining that coveted XBLA certification, but we're hopeful that we'll be storming cartoon strongholds relatively soon.
