Castle Crashers – Pink Knight

Castle Crashers – Pink Knight

I recently picked up the Pink Knight DLC for Castle Crashers.  It’s a free DLC pack, and one that my daughter absolutely loves.  The pink knight shoots rainbow arrows with hearts for an arrowhead, sends a rainbow splash that freezes enemies and makes them flash a peace sign, and does something with a penguin or […]

Closing Out the 2011 Conventions

Is it strange that, whenever I’m around the other artists at the conventions, all I can hear is When I Go Out With Artists by the Crash Test Dummies? One of the nice things about hitting the smaller conventions, like Con on the Cob, is the opportunity to hang out with the artists in a […]

OnLive Console Problems

I posted last month about the consoles that OnLive was giving out at PAX this year, and about the free console that they were giving away with the purchase of Batman: Arkham City.  I ended up buying into the deal. While I was waiting for the console to arrive, I started playing around with OnLive […]
