Why am I going to have to buy the above-mentioned beat 'em up, you ask? Because the folks at Behemoth are finally--on Feb. 8--going to release a DLC pack that allows gamers to play as the Pink Knight.
Castle Crashers has been on my lengthy "to buy" list ever since I saw this oh-so-fabulous fighter--who bashes foes with a swirled lollipop--in a video of the company's Castle Crashing the Beard flash game. (The Pink Knight appears at the two-minute mark.)
"Pink Castle Crasher pt. 2" by artist Phill Gonzales.
Unfortunately, I discovered shortly after viewing said video that the Pink Knight wasn't a playable Castle Crashers character--a fact which killed most of my enthusiasm for the game. Of course, it also kept me from running out and buying a PS3 (or an Xbox 360) right then and there, so I guess it wasn't a completely negative discovery.
Does that mean I'm going to run out and buy one of those systems now? No, but I'm sure to do so eventually--and when I do, Castle Crashers (and "The Pink Knight Pack") will be among the first games I download.
