You know how I said I'd buy Castle Crashers when the 'Pink Knight Pack' was available?

Well, it is, and I did ... last night!

I've been holding on to a bunch of Microsoft Points, waiting for this day to arrive, so when I saw (via NeoGAF) that the "Pink Knight Pack" was finally available for download--and for free, no less--I raced over to our TV, turned on the Xbox 360 and bought the sucker (Castle Crashers, that is) with nary a second thought.

I've barely scratched the surface of the game thus far, but the little I have, er, scratched has proven to be quite fun. Of course, how could it not be fun when you're controlling a little pink knight who wields a lollipop as a weapon and who unleashes a giant, Slinky-like rainbow as a magical attack?

So gay. I love it! I'll just add this to the festering pile of games I have to get if I get an XBox.

Yes, it's totally gay, Justin -- so of course I love it! BTW, this is available on both PS3 and Xbox 360, so you can get it for whichever you buy first. Speaking of ... which one are you planning to buy first?

Well, I'd like an XBox 360, but Robb would want a PS3.

Ah, well, that makes things interesting, doesn't it? Who is going to win in the end?

My advice: Until either of them drop to $149, I'd buy the system that has the most retail games that you want to buy/own.

I don't regret my 360 purchase, exactly, but part of me sometimes wonders if it was the best idea, as Deadly Premonition literally is the only retail game I want for it (OK, and Catherine). On the other hand, I want a number of retail games for the PS3 -- yet I don't have the system.

Eh, I guess in the end you have to go with your gut. I just know that sometimes I wonder if I really should have bought the 360 when I did...
