    Shoot, my dad still does. He loves Call of Duty and will occasionally partake in some Rock Band.

    My mom still tells me to turn that fucking thing off and go outside, however. Except now she adds in "You're 27 years old, time to grow up!"

    Man, I have nothing to add to this thread other than a bunch of gleeful squeeing.

    Kirby just makes me irrationally happy in a way no other videogame character can.

    I think it's perfectly fine to change up the formula a little bit. Plus, I love how creative the art style is. It's on the top of my list for games to purchase.

    My dad will still play champions of norrath and perfect dark, among other things. He almost picked up a 360 for the xbox live version of PD.

    Also, this. I see where people are coming from, in the "it's not really kirby" arguement, but I'd be less interested if they hadn't tried something new.

    Graphics are lovely, but this is by the Brawl team, and the Brawl singleplayer was kind of weak.
    We'll see.

    Pretty sure Kirby's Epic Yarn is in development by Good-Feel, which made the awesome Wario Land: Shake It!

    So I'm not concerned in the least.

    This is my best news of the day. Thankyou.

    Wario Land: Shake It! is an absolute gem.

    This game looks so cute, somehow I've never really played a Kirby platformer.

    I've missed so much!

    If you got a DS Squeak Squad/Superstar/Canvas Curse are all good choice. Canvas Curse doesn't really represent the Kirby Platformers though. If all you have is a Wii Super Star is on the VC now. Kirby's Adventure (another VC title) is also quite good. The other VC titles are Dreamland 3 (kinda meh) and Kirby 64 (I've never played that one).

    Stay Away from Squeak Squad, or at least make it your last choice.

    It's not a bad game, not at all. It's just way, way too easy.

    If you can find Kirby & the Amazing Mirror that's probably my favorite traditional one made recently.

    This does look pretty excellent. They visuals remind me a bit of Little King's Story, which is excellent! At first I was disappointed that it didn't use the Melee engine, but this looks way better.

    Did Kirby even get his different powers in that game by absorbing enemies? I couldn't tell.

    Amazing mirror is one of the best. Simply for the Metroidvania aspect of it.

    I am feeling all fuzzy inside! Don't do this to me! D:

    As for recommendations, any argument that Canvas Curse doesn't represent Kirby games is nullified by the extreme amounts of awesome that the game contains.

    So the blue guy is US Kirby, obviously.

    And I never played the original Kirby, but I'm pretty sure his ability to copy powers was something that came in later games.

    It actually came about in his second game. Kirby's Adventure.

    This game is absolutely beautiful. Between this, Rayman and Donkey Kong we'll have our hands full with great 2d plaformers this year.

    Judging by the coop videos it would seem Kirby can't puff to fly in this game.

    Kirby's a nice sandbox for developers.
    Dev:" oh I have this Yarn idea. I don't think it'll work as a stand alone IP"
    Nintendo: Use Kirby
    Dev: cool

    Squeak squad showed me traditional Kirby cannnot work unless they shake up the formula in some manner .
    It was so bland even the ultimate star macguffin was a fucking gold butter churn

    My concern with this is that it will probably be incredibly easy, at least if Squeak Squad is anything to go by.

    This game does knot look bad. The gameplay will probably leave us in stitches.

    I don't want to knit pick, but the physics are only sew sew, and it doesn't look like Kirby can scarf down enemies anymore. He also can't zip around like he used to, but hopefully the devs can button up these issues before release. Hopefully they won't have to patch it later...

    You needle-ittle perspective on these things. Your comment on the physics is pure fabrication, the physics looked seamlessly integrated into gameplay. Eating enemies is old hat, kirby has moved on to bigger and better things. I'm sure they can mend any flaws between now and release time. I'll be darned if they give us a sub par product.

    I'm just saying it doesn't quite have the fabric that makes up a Kirby game, they haven't crafted it quite the same way. But I guess none of us have plaid it yet.
