Castle Crashers, A Billion Links Edition

Looks like the cast list won't just be limited to homo sapians, with the inclusion of a member of the Ursidae family.  The weapons are also getting a bump, with the barbarians and Knights of Nii getting represented. And of course there are animal orbs, which really deserve to be told in Behemoth's own words. Well, it looks like Castle Crashers indeed will be a quirky and fun affair, which we've come to expect. Besides, what part of playing as a polar bear with a fish as a weapon (and a cat as an aide) doesn't sound cool?

Ikaruga Sending It's Color-Changing Ship To XBLA

For non-Ikaruga fans, the game's core concept is that the color of your ship determines who can damage you. If your enemy is the same color as you, your enemy's attacks won't damage you (in fact you can absorb their attacks). And inversely, if you and your enemy are different colors, their attacks will damage you.This is where the color-changing aspect comes into play.
