Just wanted to check if The Behemoth wishes to continue the moratorium on mentioning Hatty Hattington, or any of the content related to the "Can't Stop Crying Pack", on Castlepedia. All of that information was removed a few months ago at The Behemoth's request.

Thanks!

I dont see why it was removed when we already know everything about how he plays, theres no point in hiding a surprise that doesnt exist.

There are people who still don't know about it, they may as well try to keep it from spreading.

Well lets hope the over 1.8 million people who played the game didnt play online with a single person using Hatty as we speak.

Factor out the people:
[*:28dqiiwp]Who don't have Gold
[*:28dqiiwp]Who haven't played the game recently (it released almost 4 years ago)
[*:28dqiiwp]Who also have the PSN version and prefer it
[*:28dqiiwp]Who don't like playing online
[*:28dqiiwp]Who are unable to connect to XBL (which, from what I've seen, has been happening a lot recently)
[*:28dqiiwp]Who have no idea who Hatty is and just assumes he's an unlockable character (I believe we even had a thread recently where someone asked who he was and how to unlock him)
Plus, how common is Hatty to find while playing online? You need to find someone who's hacked him into the game and decides to use him over any other character they have. Compared to the 256, which there were bajillions more of without the choice to use an unhacked character, and even then people still assumed it was just an in-game feature.

Yes, Hatty was leaked, but the only way to really know who he is (or, in some cases, that he actually exists in Castle Crashers) is to look online. I think the game's wiki is always the first place I check when I have a question about a game.

Youtube exists, other forums exist, fact of the matter is the only people who dont know only just recently bought the game, dont follow Battleblock Theater, or cant play online due to the new issue of online not working.
This is silly anyway and a leaked character isnt even a major concern.

And people without Gold. And people who haven't played recently. And everybody else I listed in my last post.

Here's a perfect example of a person who had no idea about Hatty in Castle Crashers:
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=14444

There are people who love Castle Crashers to death. I'm one of them. But just because someone owns Castle Crashers doesn't mean they follow The Behemoth. Especially after almost 4 years since its original release. I, for example, wouldn't know anything about Hatty being in Castle Crashers if it weren't for the fact that I'm a Mod. I post on a lot of forums, but more than anything I just check the devblogs for updates and Joystiq for news. I know there are YouTube videos and all, but these forums are the only place I've seen Hatty in CC even mentioned.

Then take other games I've played. SpaceChem, Costume Quest, Scott Pilgrim, Fat Princess, LittleBigPlanet. I love these games to death, and I consider Costume Quest and LittleBigPlanet as part of my top favorites. For all I know, these games could be completely broken right now. But, despite the fact that I love these games, I haven't played them for almost half a year. Same deal with Castle Crashers. People could have Monkey Island costumes in LittleBigPlanet and Scott Pilgrim's in-game currency could be bagels. I'd have no way to know unless I looked around for it. I check a lot of game company devblogs, but I've read nothing about LeChuck Sackboys or bagel money, so I really don't have any way of knowing unless I do some research on a bug I don't even know exists, or if I start playing the game again, which probably isn't going to happen. I have piles of games, many I haven't beaten and many I haven't even started. Why play the 2008 Castle Crashers for the bajillionth time when you can be playing Skyward Sword for the first time?

The only reason most of us post on these forums is because we love Behemoth games. That's not the same for everybody outside of the forums. It's probably safe to say that we as a community know more about Behemoth games than over 90% of the total people who play Castle Crashers and Alien Hominid.

How many people do you personally know who own Castle Crashers? How many of those people know all about Hatty being hacked into the game as a character? I know of at least 7 people who own Castle Crashers, and I can guarantee that not a single one of them knows about it. Four of these people got the 256 and didn't even have the slightest idea why they got it or whether or not it was just another part of the game. Compare that to Hatty users, which are a lot less frequent and a lot less suspicious. Most people aren't even going to give it any thought.

SushiGummy, lovely post. Read it and *fistbump* on providing great answers!


BFG- As for Castlepedia, we don't have info on Hatty Hattington content/packs that we want to post just yet.


P.S. Have these XBOX Live connectivity issues been happening recently? What's going on? Email me - christine@thebehemoth.com

Heh, I wasn't expecting such a passionate (or fast!) response. A second round of kudos on your last post, SushiGummy.

No worries, Christine; we'll continue to leave "Can't Stop Crying" off the Wiki until The Behemoth gives us the go-ahead!


(P.S. Speaking of Castlepedia content - we could really use a better version of the Blacksmith's profile photo, if you could send us one! The one currently posted was a cleaned up screen-grab from a Youtube video; that's why there's some white lines in the antlers and other aberrations. We'd prefer to have a nice high-quality one like we do for most of the other characters.
Here's the image I'm talking about: http://castlewiki.castlecrashers.com/in ... ight_P.jpg)

I agree with you there. It'd be nice to see an HD version of the picture, also since there are no other good ones on the Internet besides that one.

Due to being banned for approximately two years, this thread made me discover hatty as a CC character.

There goes the surprise I guess.

Sorry 'bout that. I figured it was common knowledge since it's been all over Youtube, message boards, the wikis, etc. In other words it's the hackers that really spoiled the surprise.

Maybe a mod should lock this and put a spoiler alert in the title.

Maybe I'll do that.

Yeah, I'll do that.

I'll lock this. BFG, if you have any questions, you can ask me about why I locked this and whatnot. For any other go-ahead questions, ask The Behemoth themselves, I guess.
