Friday Night Fights: Crashing Castles edition

What a week this has been. PAX and Castle Crashers coming at us back to back? Talk about a win-win situation — unless, of course, the former prevented you from becoming intimate with the latter.

While Castle Crasher‘s netcode remains bothersome, that’s not to say it’ll be impossible to get a few Destructoid groups going. The key word here is persistence.

If you’re eager to tackle the entire campaign from start to finish with a level one character, you’ve come to the right place. I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I have already invested 20+ hours in CC and I am still antsy just thinking about it.

Mini-guide for meeting up with Dtoiders for Super Smash Bros. Brawl or Mario Kart:

The Ventrilo way: download and install Vent, then use the following info to log onto Dtoid’s server:

Dtoider smerff wants to know if anyone would be interested in a dedicated server for either Freelancer or Counter-Strike: Source. Well, would you? Leave a comment with your thoughts on the matter.


The following hosts are European, and may or may not still be hosting by the time you read this. Alternatively, if you want to get your gaming done earlier on (say 5:00 p.m. EST), these are the people you’ll want to talk to.
