Yarn Yoshi Winds Up Wii U Excitement

Tuesday, January 29, 2013 No Comments

Nintendo’s President, Saturo Iwata, released a whole stream of major first party news for Wii U in last week’s installment of Nintendo Direct. And while that mass announcement included two The Legend of Zelda games (one of which is a high definition remake of Wind Waker, which I still say is a highly underrated game […]

Nintendo Holiday Showcase Event 2012

Thursday, October 25, 2012 1 Comment

Nintendo is not the little kid it used to be. For years we’ve seen a plumber traverse mushroom-related worlds to save a princess (who was always in another castle) stomping on mushroom-related bad guys and turtles along the way. We’ve seen an adorable pink ball fill up with air and float across a vibrantly colored […]

Kirby’s Return to Dream Land

Wednesday, October 26, 2011 No Comments

I’ve played a handful of Kirby games in my day, and I think it’s safe to say that Kirby is not synonymous with difficult. In fact, it’s actually closely related to easy. But easy doesn’t mean bad. Sure Kirby’s Return to Dream Land doesn’t offer a challenging experience, but it’s not meant to be. It’s […]

Kirby Mass Attack

Monday, October 24, 2011 No Comments

Take Kirby, divide him by 10 and the fun factor is multiplied by 100. Trust me, I did the math – it works out. I don’t know how, but it does! It’s like Sheldon’s trains on The Big Bang Theory! Kirby Mass Attack removes the awesome pink puff’s powers, but throws in the accumulated strength of […]

Kirby Mass Attack Releases for Nintendo DS

Tuesday, September 20, 2011 No Comments

Nintendo officially announced the release of Kirby Mass Attack for Nintendo DS this week. The game challenges you to help Kirby put himself back together after the evil sorcerer Necrodeus splits the loveable pink puffball into 10 smaller copies of himself. You only start with one Kirby though, and can come across obstacles too large […]

Kirby Wii Brings Franchise Back to Roots, With Bonuses, at Nintendo E3 2011 Review

Thursday, July 28, 2011 1 Comment

One of the games Nintendo of Canada was showing at last week’s E3 2011 review event was the recently announced Kirby Wii. The name may still be a working title, but this game, first shown at Nintendo’s E3 2011 Press Conference, is already set to release this fall. It’s pretty clear that Nintendo was hedging […]

Kirby Mass Attack Drops Cuteness Bomb at Nintendo E3 2011 Review

Thursday, July 28, 2011 1 Comment

Be it a single Kirby in platformers or four Kirbys in the Smash Brothers titles, I thought I had seen the most Kirbys in one place that I ever would. Well, at Nintendo of Canada’s E3 2011 review last week, I found out that I was clearly wrong! Kirby Mass Attack, is in development, for […]

Nintendo Holds E3 2011 Review Event in Toronto

Monday, July 25, 2011 2 Comments

This past Thursday, Nintendo of Canada held an event showcasing some of its top upcoming titles from E3 2011 in downtown Toronto. With a more subdued feel than the glitz and glamour of E3, the event only featured a handful of Wii titles, another handful of Nintendo 3DS titles, and a spatter of DS games. […]

Kirby’s Epic Yarn

Thursday, December 16, 2010 3 Comments

Kirby’s Epic Yarn is not a standard Kirby game. Trapped inside a world made from yarn and cloth, the pink puffball has no sucking power but, instead, can transform into various creatures and objects, and he must help stitch the world back together to return to Dream Land. You’d think that without Kirby’s staple power […]

Kirby’s Epic Yarn

Tuesday, December 7, 2010 2 Comments

I’m not sure why Kirby’s Epic Yarn has Kirby in it. Sure it looks like him, and some of the other characters and sounds are from the Kirby games, but Kirby has a vastly different set of abilities. So, in reality, it’s not really the Kirby we all know. But, honestly, I don’t mind this […]
