  1. Are you a new user? Then this is the guide for you! Here's some tips on how to get started by an unofficially certified TBF source. TIP ONE: TBF TEE BEE EFF Short for The Behemoth Forums. TIP TWO: Never post more then 20 times a day No one knows why. TIP THREE: Never post status updates I regret starting. TIP FORE: ALWAYS like your own posts. It shows that you have no friends and people will give you even more likes because they feel bad. TIP FIVE: Never get in Castle Crashers debates with Hazard You'll regret it. 666 Gold skulls m9. TIP ATE: Never bring up the following Five Nights at Freddy's Spiderman TIP Nine: Have fun. Alright well I sort of made this all as a joke but in all honesty number 5 and 8 are probably legit. If you are new I recommend this nifty little page. Have fun and good luck on your Tee Bee Eff adventure.
  2. I felt inspired to write a guide today, so here it is: EDIT: Updated with more relevant information to the steam port.

    Guide To Mana Cost And Mechanics

    Copy and pasted from Mana Cost and Mechanics, a page that I wrote on the Castle Crashers Wikia. NOTE: This may not be 100% accurate. As of now this is the most accurate analysis any individual has produced, to my own knowledge. If you have any criticisms then pleas by all means post them in the comments so that I can update the information. Splash Attacks Splash attacks are the most diverse form of magic; even at level 1, the characters are still drastically different from each other to the point that there's still plenty of material to build a tier list off of. Standard - 9 Casts Per Mana Bar This is the cheapest form of mana regeneration, used by the majority of the characters in the game. With +5 magic it's boosted to 12 casts. If you don't see a character in the following sections, then you can infer that they use this form of mana regeneration, however most notably Fencer, Industrialist, Ninja, Fire Demon, Brute, and Snakey use this magic. Sustained - 6 Casts Per Mana Bar Characters with sustained magic use this form of mana regeneration. If it's not sustained, then it takes 1/6 of the player's mana away. With +5 magic it's boosted to 8 casts. Bear, Saracen, and Red Knight use this form of mana regeneration. These splash attacks appear to be disadvantageous, or even terrible at first, but Bear and Saracen can use their magic to perform unique juggle combos, and are potentially the most efficient characters for killing normal-sized enemies. Red Knight's magic makes him a decent support character, similar to King. Expensive - 2 Casts Per Mana Bar This is the most expensive form of mana regeneration, used by only a few of the characters in the game. This cost is in exchange for unparalelled crowd control, or some other benefit. Important Note: This form of mana regeneration is not a disadvantage. If casting twice from a full mana bar is a disadvantage, then a double-barrel shotgun is the weakest gun of all by the same reasoning. With +5 magic it's boosted to 2.67 casts; you won't be able to cast it more times in a row, but it will still regenerate faster, and your mana will not be completely drained, allowing a third cast after a very short waiting period following the second cast. Blue Knight, Iceskimo, and Pink Knight use this form of mana regeneration. Aerial Splash Attacks The same as normal splash attacks, just casted from the air. Only certain characters use this form of magic. Ice Shards - 2 Casts Per Mana Bar Blue Knight is the only character who uses this attack. Important Note: This form of attack is not a disadvantage. If casting twice from a full mana bar is a disadvantage, then a double-barrel shotgun is the weakest gun of all by the same reasoning. With +5 magic it's boosted to 2.67 casts; you won't be able to cast it more times in a row, but it will still regenerate faster, and your mana will not be completely drained, allowing a third cast after a very short waiting period following the second cast. Airborne Tornado - 9 Casts Per Mana Bar Saracen and Bear are the only characters who use this. Unlike its use on the ground, this has normal cost. Most of the time the player will use it for juggling. With +5 magic, it can be casted 8 times. Airborne Frogglet Blacksmith uses this attack. Literally the only difference between this and another air projectile is that it does half as much damage. It can hit multiple enemies, but it's still not that useful because it just knocks the enemies flat on their backs rather than up into the air so your teammates can juggle them. Projectiles Projectiles are much less varied than splash attacks, almost to the point that they have little to no impact on gameplay with only a few exceptions. Note: Both styles of bombs fall at a 60 degree angle in the air, causing them to hit enemies standing under the player, unlike projectiles at a 45 degree angle. Standard - 9 Casts Per Mana Bar This is what most characters use. It's just a generic ball that does damage, nothing special at all. Unless the ball is ice, fire, poison, or moves faster than normal -- with the four speedy exceptions being Ninja, Iceskimo, Alien, and Necromancer -- then it does nothing of interest, making projectiles practically useless for most of the characters that use this type, aside from the aforementioned exceptions. It can be casted 12 times with +5 magic. If a character isn't listed in one of the other sections, then it can be inferred that they're standard. Bomb Style (Fire) Gray Knight, Royal Guard, and Conehead use this projectile. Bombs are potentially the most powerful projectile in the game in terms of bonuses, special effects, and other unique qualities, and are even better than that in terms of their lack of disadvantages, which is none at all. Important Note: Considering range a disadvantage for bombs is like saying that a Jedi is at a disadvantage to a Stormtrooper in Star Wars. Bomb Style (Non-Elemental) Pink Knight, Necromancer, and Hatty Hattington use this projectile. These aren't nearly as powerful as bombs, but Pink Knight's projectiles can critical hit. Necromancer's projectile is different from a bomb, but there are still strong similarities. His Projectile is the fastest of all, and when casted from the air, it doesn't break on the ground, and unlike bombs, it travels to the end of the screen. It's easily one of the most useful projectiles for players who are good at levitation, as it can be used effectively for aerial combat, in a situation where the player can't afford to take any more damage. Note: Hatty doesn't use his bomb-style projectile on the ground, but he uses the standard format of projectiles on the ground. Reduced Damage (Non-Elemental) Alien is the only character that uses this; it moves faster than normal projectiles, and it can be casted three times the normal rate. The only problem with this is that it wastes mana to do so instead of actually timing the casting like everyone else, because no matter what an enemy can't be hit if it's still on the ground, so any excess shots are just wasted. Alternate Splash Attack - 6 Casts Per Mana Bar Saracen is the only character that uses this; it knocks enemies up in the air to either take fall damage, or be juggled. It can be casted 8 times with +5 magic. XXXY Combos All XXXY combos use no mana at all. There are six different types: default, lightning, fire, poison, ice, and non-elemental. Magic Jumps All magic jumps use the same amount of mana, and aside from ice, poison, and fire, they're all the same. The only exception, is the fact that Iceskimo has an advantage over Blue Knight, and vice versa, depending on the situation. Magic Jumps technically have no cost, as they fully recharge before you can use another, but they otherwise could be casted 9 times from a full mana bar.
  4. Well, it looks like lots of people are starting to make guides on the forums, so I decided I should post some of mine here. Instead of rewriting them, I'll just link you all to them. Castle Crashers - The Complete Basics Guide: Castle Crashers - The Best Ways to earn more XP Guide: Castle Crashers - All Animal Orb Ratings Guide: Castle Crashers - Better Keyboard Controls Guide (Steam Only): I will expand this as more guides come in the future!
  5. "It's gonna be a ton of fun!" Battleblock Theater is the best game ever, on the planet. But, have you ever asked yourself, "Is there a way I can make this game the most fun, ever?" Yes, you can. And here's how, in just 7 easy steps. (NOTE: This is NOT a guide to beating the game. This is a guide to having the most fun as possible!) STEP 1: Plan it This guide is mostly for people new to Battleblock, but returning users can use it, too! Something I do recommend is either resetting your data, using another account, or just trying the whole thing again. (Not resetting your data, and just playing campaign again.) Once you've chosen one of these, you can start planning. Yes, even though some people think otherwise, you can plan fun. Choose a night that you can play -- I recommend weekends, of course. Make sure your friend (yes, it's almost essential to have a friend to have the most fun in BBT.) can come that day. Of course, make your play space is comfortable, and no one will interrupt. Set up some snacks, sitting on the couch playing video games can get you hungry. Obviously, grab some drinks. Soda, chocolate milk -- pretty much the best drinks you can find. STEP 2: "Kill your friend and grab the jem!" Friends are almost essential. I recommend playing on XBOX 360, mainly because instead of being huddled in front of a computer, you can sit back and be relaxed. I definitely do not recommend online play. Why? Maybe you want to actually have full communication, instead of relying on mics. Plus, you can share those snacks you set up. Besides, friendship shouldn't be over screens, your friend should be with you, and should interact face to face. STEP 3: Choose your mode What will mode do you like the most? I don't recommend level editing if your going for a night of fun and laughter. (unless the levels your making are completely ridiculous.) Here are the top 3 things to do: 3. Complete it all This is only for advanced players. Have you finished the campaign? Cool! You earned the prize of awesomeness! Want to earn the prize of awesomeness beyond comprehension? COMPLETE IT. For example, unlock all the heads, unlock all the star heads, beat all the time levels, buy all the weapons (which you probably have already done in the normal campaign) or beat insane mode. This is a very fun task to do with friends, me and my friend pulled an all-nighter doing it, and we still aren't finished. 2. Arena This mode is great for a group. Unlike campaign when you can only have up to 2 players, you can have up to 4! It brings out your competitive spirit, and it's a ton of fun! I highly suggest ball game, it's my personal favorite! 1. Campaign My friend and I spend countless nights of laughter and rage completing the campaign. It's great to do with friends. Here's some tips: Don't skip the cut-scenes unless you've seen them before, they're super funny. Don't play some levels while your friend isn't. If you didn't get the campaign done in that one night of fun that we planned in step 1, plan another one! Invite your friend for more amazing fun! Plus, it's much better to play together! STEP 4: Don't take it to seriously This is quite possibly the most important step. Don't play BBT so you get a perfect A++ score, play it for fun. Now, if you get something like a C then that's completely unacceptable. Go back and do the level again. Just kidding. Play for the fun, not the grade. Sure, a little challenge or friendly competition is alright, just nothing to a point where your playing the same level millions of times until you get a perfect grade. You died? So what! You're rewarded with big laughs and, of course, a funny quote from the narrator. Feel free to push your friend into the spikes, he/she won't mind. STEP 5: No rush Battleblock Theater isn't fun at all if you rush through it, skipping cut-scenes, punching your friend because he/she is going to slow. DO NOT RUSH IT. You'll be sad when the story of friendship will be over. Make the most of it. Who cares if you and your friend are stuck on one puzzle for a half an hour, all that matters is that you're having fun! Like I said in step 3, don't play when your friend isn't. It's better to play levels together! STEP 6: Additional Settings Here's some helpful settings to better your experience. You can set how common the narrator speaks! I recommend Blabbermouth, because if this is set on, the narrator speaks more! Have fun laughing at his funny comments! (You can do this for the crowd, too! The higher the setting, the more they clap for your amazing deaths!) I also suggest subtitles, so you'll never miss a joke in the cut-scenes! STEP 7: Plan another night! The title says it all: do it again! Try to make the most of Battleblock Theater! Conclusion So, just so you guys know, I CANNOT tell you how to have fun. These are just a few tips that a lot of people I know use! I hope all find these helpful, and, if you have any ways you like to have fun with your friends, let me know! BONUS ROUND Let's have some more fun! Fan Vs. Vacuum Cleaner Credit goes to Jamma003! You and your friend should do something stupid. Ad least once in your friendshipy quest, have one friend have the vacuum, and the other a fan, then use them at the same time. Epic things will happen.
  6. Hey, I was bored and thought I would make a GTA 5 Online guide to show which vehicle is the best in each class Fully Modded so you guys can drive in style, win more races, and show off! Super: Overflod Entity XF - Price: $795,000 Speed: 8.3 Brake: 3 Acceleration: 8.3 Handling: 8.3 Overall Rating: 10/10 Commentary: It is the fastest vehicle in the game matching up to the Truffade Adder but the Overflod Entity XF's acceleration makes it the best vehicle in its class. Does not handle well on twisty roads or mountainous terrain, other than that the handling is great. Muscle: Bravado Gauntlet - Price: $32,000 Speed: 8 Brake: 3 Acceleration: 7.5 Handling: 7.5 Overall Rating: 9/10 Commentary: The Bravado Gauntlet is the best in its class but some might argue with that. The speed and acceleration are good for a muscle car, just remember to break a bit early. Sedan: Obey Tailgater - Price: Can be found and taken into one's garage. Speed: 8 Brake: 3 Acceleration: 5 Handling: 8 Overall Rating: 8.5/10 Commentary: Just to mention it, this is the type of vehicle Michael has on the compaign. This maybe a difficult vehicle for some to find, if you need any help post below or message me. The handling is downright amazing and the speed isn't too bad, I would work on the acceleration. Also many people argue about this one too. Coupe: Dewbauchee Exemplar - Price: $205,000 Speed: 8 Brake: 3 Acceleration: 6.5 Handling: 8 Overall Rating: 9.5/10 Commentary: I personally love how this vehicle handles and it's speed and acceleration isn't bad either. SUV: Obey Rocoto - Price: $90,000 Speed: 7.5 Brake: 1 Acceleration: 5 Handling: 6.5 Overall Rating: 8/10 Commentary: Like a SUV it is not very fast so I would upgrade it's acceleration. The handling is okay. Motorcycles: Pegassi Bati 801 - Price: $15,000 Speed: 8 Brake: 4.5 Acceleration: 7.5 Handling: 7 Overall Rating: 9.5/10 Commentary: This vehicle is only best because once modded in Los Santos Customs it surpasses the Dinka Double-T, otherwise they are pretty well matched. This is also one many people argue about. The handling is pretty good I will say and the speed is excellent. Off-Road: BF Injection - Price: $16,000 Speed: 7.5 Brake: 2 Acceleration: 6 Handling: 5.5 Overall Rating: 8.5/10 Commentary: I personally prefer the DF Dune Buggy but the BF Injection is better. The speed and acceleration is better but slow down pretty early or you will most likely spin out and crash hard. Also arguable. Sports: Grotti Carbonizzare - Price: $195,000 Speed: 8.5 Brake: 2.7 Acceleration: 8.8 Handling: 7.2 Overall Rating: 9.5/10 Commentary: This is the best sports vehicle. The speed and acceleration are amazing and handles very well. The brakes could use some work though. Sport Classics: Pegassi Monroe - Price: $490,000 Speed: 8 Brake: 2 Acceleration: 7 Handling: 6.5 Overall Rating: 9/10 Commentary: For a sport classics it is pretty fast and handles pretty well but I would still work on the handling. Compacts: Dinka Blista - Price: Can be found and taken into one's garage. Speed: 7 Brake: 2 Acceleration: 6 Handling: 6.5 Overall Rating: 7.5/10 Commentary: Like all compact vehicles it is not very good but the Dinka Blista is the best compact out of the three. Helicopter: Buzzard Attack Chopper - Price: $1,750,000 and can also be found. Speed: 7.5 Brake: 10 Acceleration: 9.5 Handling: 10 Overall Rating: 10/10 Commentary: I find this to be the best helicopter because of the stats of course and it is quicker and handles better when aiming or getting somewhere. I would not purchase it but look for it because it spawns quite frequently. Planes: Buckingham Luxor - Price: $1,625,000 and can also be found. Speed: 4.5 Brake: 1 Acceleration: 4 Handling: 0 Overall Rating: 10/10 Commentary: I find the Buckingham Luxor more mobile than the Buckingham Shamal even though they have the same stats. The handling stats, there are none, but move beautifully in the air. It doesn't spawn as frequently but still can be found. Questions, comments, and requests are gladly accepted. If there is another vehicle class you would like post below and/or message me and I will add it as soon as I can, thank you. Also if you are having trouble obtaining one of the vehicles listed above post below and/or message me. Note: Stats added. Overall rating added. Commentary added. Helicopter added. Plane added. I hope you guys found this helpful!

  9. This is how I see these prisoners and please feel free to disagree with me. Every game has a selling feature. Essentially, this is what makes the game unique and makes people want to buy it. Star Prisoners are just one of many aspects of this game that makes BattleBlock Theatre unique. Players have obsessing with them to the point where finding a good game is even rarer than any Star prisoner. Star prisoners were most likely added to the game to make the game more interesting, give the game a selling feature, and to 'push' the players to go once a week. The game is interesting enough, the game has more than enough other selling features to survive, and if you buy a game and only play it once a week, you are not getting your money's worth and it is quite pathetic. However, they are fun to collect. Do not think of the Star prisoners as the reason for playing, rather just one of MANY reasons to turn on your Xbox 360, scroll over to the arcade section, and click the 'A' button whilst hovering over BattleBlock Theatre. Each picture of a Star prisoner displays the following text, "For a limited time only." This means that at some point, after a re-release, ALL Star prisoners will become unavailable through the features. Most likely, you will end up paying Microsoft points to purchase a certain quantity of prisoners at some point in the distant future, assuming you do not already have them all. Finally, this use of the term 'rare' has been flying around lately and it is being associated with Star prisoners incorrectly. Rarity has nothing do with opinion, date of release, quality, how it was released, or votes in a poll. This term simply refers to how the Star prisoners, in this case, are distributed throughout the players. Re-releases usually eliminate this rarity and there is no reason to complain about. Just because you received Winston when he initially was released, does not give you any right or reason to complain about his rarity being destroyed from the re-release. What if you never got Winston? You would not be complaining and, in fact, be happy that you now have him. It is a biased argument. For some of you, this was common sense. This is for the players that just did not get it. Thanks for reading.

    Should I Make An Ultimate Story Mode Guide?

    So Castle Crashers has been out for 4 or 5 years now and I'm wondering if its time to create a mega story mode guide which covers every secret and useful tip during gameplay level by level. Doing so would take time and require countless revisions as people provide input or fact checks on platform variations. I'm just wondering if people in the community think its worthwhile or not?
