Ode to the Pink Knight – Why This Castle Crashers Knight Kicks Ass

A few months ago I finished playing Castle Crashers on co-op with my cousin and friend. It was my first time playing the game and one of the first few games (aside from Dragon Age: Origins) I owned, ever since the fateful day I decided to get an Xbox 360.

For those not familiar with Castle Crashers, it’s a fun 2-D, side-scrolling, action adventure, beat ’em up style game done by developer The Behemoth.

You can consider this as both figuratively and literally speaking. Take your pick.

Understanding The Term “Geek Chic”

Being a geek is a label I identify with closely. I watch and own a ton of my favorite anime series and movies, read a lot of shojo manga in my spare time, and play video games. I even own some cool action figures thanks to my own purchases or friends who have been kind enough to give them to me as gifts. If you met me in real life, I doubt anyone would instantly slap on the geek label. Not on the surface anyway. This is why outer appearances are always deceiving.
