So I posted a mention about this earlier in the Friday afternoon thread, but as it is now officially the "Christmas season," as opposed to your local drug store which has had Christmas decorations and candy out since Labor Day or so, it is time for something that I found
This was going to be another Senor in the Underworld post. It was going to be a sit-in on the poker night that Hades referred to last time, with Hades, Persephone, Senor, and maybe a couple of others, maybe the redhead with the axe referenced from the Pro Bowl post—that
Welcome to a very special BattleBots Beat vignette for Halloween. For your enjoyment, but hopefully not for your pleasure, because eww, we bring you this tale of a plucky underdog doing anything and everything to try and shock the world. We call this story, "Conquering the Reaper."*

Welcome to the second [DFO] BattleBots Awards! With the rebranding this season of the BattleBots Beat, we (I) decided that we needed something cleverer than the generic "BattleBots Awards." But all the good fasteners were taken (the Giant Nut and Bolt by BattleBots, the Giant Screw was a thing that
Hey everyone, and for the last time this year, welcome back to the Beat! Last time we covered the right side of the BattleBots championship bracket, where Bite Force dominated and Whiplash drove daringly. They joined Lock-Jaw and Minotaur in the semifinals, the final four fearsome, uh, fighters, I guess,

Hey everyone, and welcome back to the Beat! Last week, we saw Tombstone's frame finally give up the chain, Bombshell doing what it seemed to be its only purpose in life, and Minotaur be Minotaur. This week the other side of the bracket comes into play as we see who
The baseball regular season is over and we have our ten teams playing in the postseason. And the American League is nice and cut and dry. Everyone here except for Ian, Horatio, Fronk (I think), Herodotus (I think), and I will be rooting for the Dirt Raiders come Wednesday in

Week 1 of the tournament covered the left side of
Welcome back to the Beat! For the couples of peoples who might have read this on other sites, welcome to our humble abode. Right here, right now, it's now or never, do or die, all the other clichés. It's the last chance for robots to make their cases to get
Welcome back to the Beat! For those new to the site or returning for the first time in a while (we survived the off-season!), this is the BattleBots Beat, a weekly recap of the most recent episode of BattleBots. Yes, BattleBots is a thing again. As a matter of fact,
Welcome back to the Beat! Last time out, we had Tombstone and Bronco join Bite Force in the lofty realm of 4-0 robots. We had Warhead's longtime spinning dome break. The same dome that did this! (Fight starts at 3:45)
And that fight, due to the damage to Nightmare, led to
