One of the best things about being a gamer is having a never-ending pile of games to find and play, but sometimes it can be hard to find games that are not only fun, but games that you can play with your little sister as well as your friends. While going through my Arcade collection, I realized that I had more games to play with friends and family than I thought and wanted to share a few of my favorites with all of you! Click Read More to see which Xbox LIVE Arcade game made my list this week!
I couldn’t help myself when I realized that I left out Castle Crashers from my first list of family games. This is one of those games where you can lounge on the couch, kiss some Princesses, and beat up some bad guys! Another awesome aspect of the game is the offline/online 4 person co-op play, which is great for getting a group of friends together or even letting the little ones play! Make your way through different environments, pick up what I like to call “power animals” throughout the game (which can help you out in battle given their various skills), and play against each other in some crazy eating contests. Particularly, these companions are absolutely adorable and there’s nothing like finding a new weapon as you go along. The humor in this game also adds to the addictive-ness of it as well. Fighting huge cats or riding on deer to outrun an enemy are definitely hilarious and had me laughing the entire time I played it. There is a basic leveling up system in which you can add new weapons to your chosen character, but the premise is simple: Find the Princesses! Great artwork by Behemoth, addicting music, and hilarious boss fights are definitely worth the family time on this one.
Unlock the full version of Castle Crashers and start your journey into a world of magic and mystery! Battle your way across frozen tundra’s, deadly lava fields, and rival kingdoms in search of your kidnapped princess in this epic adventure. Eliminate your enemies with over 20 unlockable characters, 40 weapons to customize your hero with, and an arsenal of combos and magical attacks to choose from. Adventure together like never before – up to 4 can team up on the same console or over Xbox LIVE! This game requires the Xbox 360 hard drive or the 512MB Memory Unit for storage.
