Castle Crashers is really fun and you should play it.
(Editor’s Note: And?)
(Editor’s Note: And what else are you going write about the game?)
(Editor’s Note: Dammit Shaun. First the Power Rangers review and now this. Stop trying to slack off.)
I’m not trying to get out of work or anything. I am just being honest and succinct.
(Editor’s Note: Shaun, I edit your work on a daily basis for this site. You would not know succinct if it came up and bit you on the….)
(Editor’s Note: Sure. Whatever. Anyway, you need to write more about Castle Crashers.)
Come on, man. Think about what game we are talking about here. What else is there to say about a beat ‘em up like CC? If you have played one beat ‘em then you have played them all. Same old, same old, in other words.
(Editor’s Note: Castle Crashers was more than just another 2D beat ‘em up, Shaun. It was an indie 2D beat ‘em up that was one of a series of titles that helped make Xbox Live the place to go for indie gaming on consoles. Additionally, it helped show there was still life in the moribund beat ‘em up genre as well. It did this in part by adding in light RPG elements and by including a strong focus on four-player multiplayer, both online and local. Plus, the game constantly would change things up and throw in new elements like riding a mount, turning into a Hulk-like warrior, or getting caught up in a crazy chase sequence. See? Plenty to talk about.)
Eh… I don’t know.
(Editor’s Note: *sighs* Really?)
Sure, that sounds nice and all, but there have been plenty of great beat ‘em ups on the Xbox 360 over the years. I’m just worried people will bug me in the comments section about why this game was chosen above so many others that deserve to be included in the 360 25-in-25.
(Editor’s Note: Because you always care so much about what people think.)
You know what I mean. What, beyond its gameplay, makes Castle Crashers so special?
(Editor’s Note: How about everything? The game’s visuals are remarkably colorful and stylized. They do an amazing job of the giving the game tons of personality. They also inject a lot of humor into the game and players will often have to be careful not to die due to being so caught up in laughing at the latest bit of insanity making its way onto the screen. Castle Crashers’ story of knights rescuing a princess from an evil wizard may sound pure boilerplate, but the execution makes all the difference. This is a game more than worthy of being played by all Xbox 360 owners. So, now that we have settled that, do you want to go ahead and write this piece?)
I could, but since you have already done all the necessary writing for me….
(Editor’s Note: ….)
(Editor’s Note: I hate you.)
