I'm a new member, my name's Vince. I play Castle Crashers with my son, Crimson. Been playing for a year, perhaps a little more. He and I have lost our character progress twice due to other people(kids) playing on our accounts and erasing our hard work! Jaja! But we keep playing because it's just a fun game to play together. We recently bought both BBT and AH near a week ago, I confess.
It's really hard for me to choose which knight is my favorite. I know it isn't the red knight because that's Crimson's favorite. I would probably go with the green knight, he has a strong DOT.
As far as animal orbs go, my son likes The Golden Whale, but he is crazy about Bi-polar Bear (we call it a wolf), and I like to use Giraffy (which we call a fish).
