Note: I promise not to use any more alliteration throughout this news post.
A virtual cornucopia of news has emerged about upcoming XBLA title Castle Crashers. First of all, the Xbox.com page for the Summer of Arcade promotion features the game, and gives us the release date window: the week of August 27 to September 2. August 27 is a Wednesday, and since most Live Arcade titles are released on that day of the week, you can count on downloading the long coveted co-op title.
Next on the list is that Achieve360Points.com, of all places, has the list of achievements for Castle Crashers available. They range from the mundane (Arena Master: Win 40 Arena Ranked Matches) to the well thought out (Conscientious Objector: Complete the Home Castle through Barbarian Boss areas without attacking any foes). One achievement in particular will be of interest to Co-Optimus readers: (Medic! In a 4 player game, resuscitate each of your fallen comrades at least once.)
Finally, Spike (of TV fame) has a video of 'Castle Crashers Competitive Co-Op play'. (Those were their words, not mine, so don't blame me for all the "C" words.) It looks like Spike won't let you embed video, so go check it out and come back here to tell us your thoughts. Bonus points for using alliterative gusto!
