Raptr Q&A: Defiance and The Behemoth recap
This week we’ve got Defiance’s Executive Producer and VP of Development Nathan Richardsson and Community Manager Lance “Myll_Erik” James taking the Raptr Q&A stage. The duo will be answering all your Defiance video game and TV show questions on Wednesday, April 17th from 10AM to 6PM PT.
Start asking your questions now in this post here; “like” the questions you most want answered and they’ll try to get to them first! The top five questions will earn PC Digital Deluxe copies of the game ($99 value)! They’ll also be dropping a few Digital Deluxe codes throughout the Q&A so stay tuned in!
Last week we were graced by the folks behind BattleBlock Theater, Castle Crashers, and Alien Hominid, The Behemoth. Dan Paladin, Emil Ayoubkhan, Ian Moreno, and Megan Lam were on hand to field your ridiculous questions. Find out why cats are a common theme in their games, how a slap from Poseidon feels, and the theory floating around that they’re all clones in The Behemoth Q&A here.

Last week we held a Halo 4 game night that seriously ended with a gravity hammer bang! Way to come back on Griftball, Blue team! Raptr user MojoJojo19Kilo said that it was the “most fun I have had with Halo 4. Thanks Raptr!” While JayBeazey said, “Thanks for organizing another successful community gathering, where the community was able to express our love for each other by repeatedly killing each other for entertainment. I look forward to the next one.”
Thank you again to all community members who participated and to Raptr All-Star Kaz for helping with hosting duties!

Anyone else [bleep] their pants? by SamMallin
The folks at Irrational Games sure know how to toy with gamers’ emotions.
