    Just a quick question, if you buy the DLC can you play with people who only have the base game and still use the new content? Ala Marvel Ultimate Alliance or Crackdown? What happens if they try to pick up one of the new weapons? I might pick both packs up but only if I can round up a few friends to play again.

    Locally my friend and I played (I bought the DLC, he didn't) and he was able to grab the swords and create the new characters. But when he went home he wasn't able to pick up the sword if he dropped it, if that makes sense. I don't know what happens if he played online with me.

    I liked the demo, which I downloaded recently but I have two questions:

    1. If I buy Castle Crashers, will I be able to take the game with me to a friend on my memory stick? (We do most our gaming at his place, and he does not have his 360 hooked up to Live)

    2. Just roughly, how long does it take to play through the game once with four players?

    A couple hours on normal mode.

    Then you're done. Because despite all the skin swaps, they've created a game where virtually every character player is identical to the next. Sure, the Red Knight has one slightly different attack from the Orange Knight, but it's all pretty much the same deal.

    Kind of upsetting; so many characters, so many unlocks, and replaying the game feels like slogging through the same damned thing again. Great art, terrible character design.

    I don't think bringing the game on a memory stick will work out for you, and this is why; when you buy content it's tied to the console you originally buy it on and the xbox live account you buy it with. On the original console you can use the content with any account, even without being connected to Live. If you use the purchasing xbox live account on another 360 you can use the content associated with it only while connected to xbox live.

    If your pal doesn't have an internet connection hooked up to his xboxen you won't be able to access anything other than the trial version. One work around I could suggest is temporarily hooking his xbox up the the internet, moving your profile over and and buying it then. It'll be tied to his console to be used by any account, online or off, and tied to your account to be used as long as you're logged in and connected to the internet. However if you're ever without internet access, or want to play it with a different account, you'd be out of luck.

    Bringing my harddrive over probably won't work either?

    160 MS points seems reasonable for me for 2 extra characters, 2 extra weapons, and a new pet. I'll be downloading when I get more MS points (not sure when that will be).

    Errr... no? Unless his friend's xbox is hooked up to the internet it's the same thing. His friend's console won't have the licence and his account won't help unless it's signed in to xbox live.

    Edit: if you brought the console itself over that'd work fine but obviously it's not as handy to transport as a hard-drive or memory card. If your own xbox is perpetually signed into xbox live then purchasing content on your friend's console isn't a bad option, it's only if you don't have internet access or don't want to play with your main account it'll restrict you to the trial version.

    You can use the license transfer tool on xbox.com once a year, so you could migrate the game licence to your own console some time down the line.

    Um, I have done this plenty of times. I brought my HD to my friend's place, took his out, put mine in, and we played my arcade games.

    Unless you are talking about being signed into each other's accounts to play the arcade game, then yes, you will have to transfer one of your accounts.

    From what I know, the Red Knight lightning is pretty cheap compared to the other magics in the game, no?

    What say people on having arena battles?

    At max magic, the Red Knight is probably the strongest caster in the game, simply becuase the only way to dodge it is to never stay on the same horizontal level as he is on, making sword fighting and archery impossible.

    Redfield are you sure your friends xbox wasn't connected to the internet at the time? Or maybe your friend also owned the same game? If neither applies then I guess I'm stumped.

    I'll know for sure tomorrow hopefully, bought it today and will probably have a game night on saturday. I tried it out a little and this game is great!

    I'll post back here when I find out.

    Even your friend owning the same game doesnt work. My friend has been coming over to play 2-player 'Splosion Man. He recovers his gamertag at my place and we play. He left his gamertag on my HD, because he didn't have internet at his place.

    Both of us have 'Splosion Man, but we wanted to keep going with our progress, so when I went to play it at his house, we needed the save from my XBox.

    I took my HD over there, and used it on his XBox. Dispite the fact that he has his own copy of 'Splosion Man, and was using his profile, it wouldn't let him do anything but a trial because it was my HD, and he didnt have the internet.

    I've played online about 7-8 times, I've had no issues as of yet, but this was after the King dlc, so I don't know how it worked before. Haven't tried in awhile myself, after you finish the game and get all of the weapons/pets, it gets kinda stale.

    Do a test on your connection (and your friends). Sounds like a NAT issue.

    Man the skull mace doesn't have any stats but it crits like freaking crazy . I also don't mind the stats since alien knight is stuck using his starter weapon with no stats and it never really bothered me when I played as him. Also I never got the Medic! achievement so if anyone starts an insane mode run feel free to invite me.

    Just played a few arena matches.

    1. Four of us. Three of us are 30-50 in level. Another guy picks a level 99. You know how that went.

    2. Guy sits on a level 1, so I pick my level 1 King. We have a really fun match.

    3. Guy picks a level 60 something Metal Man wannabe. I pick my Level 50 Dragon Looking Guy. We have an epic battle. We each were down to our last hits. I think the fucking cat hit him and I ran in for the kill. Haha. I really thought he had me. He used a strategy that involved using the magic jump and I couldn't find a way to block it besides keeping space.

    I never knew arena mode could be so fun. It was actually the first thing I played of Castle Crashers back at SD Comic-Con in 2008 and never really played it since. I am playing it now for the 40 win achievement. Almost 100% the game (achievement wise). Woo.
