Castle Crasher on PC? Aug. 28th, 2008 @ 12:35 AM Reply

I've been wondering for a while, why isn't Castle Crashers on the PC? Releasing on the PC, is pontetially much more profitable. You could release on Steam, as they have many small indie games.

I really wanna try Castle Crashers, but no one I know even owns the Xbox 360.

If only life was that easy.

You people seem to think that porting a game between consoles is an easy job. No, it's not. The game was made for the 360, more specifically XBLA. It's made to run on the 360, with a controller. You can't just take it, switch up the controls and have it work on the PC. You have to adjust to the new hardware, which is completely different from the 360. This process can take months (usually more) to finish, then you have to debug it, etc..

Long story shot, you can't just port it and have it work magically. Things don't work like that.

No, PC gamers only care about flashy first person shooters.

You're thinking Xbox owners. PC gamers only care about MMOs, RPGs, RTSs, and FPSs. You heard right.

I care about other games than FPS's.
But that's a shame that most of 360's games are shooters.

I know that it isn't easy to port from one platform to another, but if the makers of Castel Crashers were thinking right, they should have understood that making the game for the PC would be much more profitable.

For the record, I have about 15 friends, and no one in my class has an Xbox. Also I don't think there are more than 2 Xbox 360 owners in my high school :S

Everyone in my class hates the Xbox, which is the right thing to do.

So get lost faggot.

how is it more profitable? and who are you to be telling PROFESSIONALS how to do their job? Seriously just shutup, your making yourself look like more and more of an idiot.

Oh and seriously what are you 7? Even my 6 year old nephew can spell CASTLE

You know that much more people have a PC than a pathetic Xbox? That is why it is potentially more profitable to release on PC.

Oh and seriously what are you 7? Even my 6 year old nephew can spell CASTLE

I'm sorry that I didn't spell check. My apologies.

you have only 15 friends? and only 2 xbox owners in your entire school? you sure they even have electricity and running water where you live?

I didn't say my whole school, I just said that nearly no one in the high school has a Xbox. Last time I checked we had running water and electricity.

shut the fuck up, you whining, bitching, pathetic excuse for a fanboy.

By the way, I wasn't trying to be rude or fanboyish, I just said the facts.
I don't think I'm a fanboy, I just hate the Xbox 360 so very much. People like you ruin Newgrounds.

I'm sorry if I offended anyone...

yes, but with a PC pretty much everyone's is different, so alot of people might be left in the dark with their computers not being able to play a specific game. With the XBOX360 thats a different matter as they are all identical so developers only have to work to what the console is capable of.

I'm sorry that I didn't spell check. My apologies.

yeah but your overall grammar sucks balls too, so your intelectual credibility is somewhat lacking anyway.

Well your computer has to be really fucked up not to run a game like Castle Crashers.

I don't speak english as my first language, so I might not be awesome at english. But I don't see how your grammar is superior to mine.

you offended EVERYONE

That's the reason why I apologized.

I didn't mean to start a war, calm down. I simply just asked why they didn't release it on the PC. And then you come along and start flaming me.

I don't really want to continue this argument, so I apologize.

yeah, but its still an un-neccesary risk for an indie developer to take

I don't think it ever will be on computer or any other console, it was originally made just for XBL, the chance of it being re-done for another console is low.

Most people do. And having a console isn't really geeky anymore. Most of the football players at my school have 360's as well.

Thank you for defending me.

I don't live in America, and that might be one big reason none of my friends have a xbox. The Xbox isn't very popular in European countries...

If they were gonna release Castle Crashers on the PC, they would most likely make it into a flash game.
