    Was Kirby All Stars the one with the pet hamster dude you can ride?

    no, but you can give up a power you're using to get a CPU (or player controlled) ally version of the enemy you get that power from.

    Guys you are telling me that the SNES Kirby is the best Kirby game.

    But it doesn't sound like you can ride 3 different pets that gain cool powers based on whatever powers you have recently absorbed.

    So I am skeptical.

    Can you combine two different powers to get different effects?

    Like fire and spiky to get fire spikes or something?

    Kirby Super Star was undeniably the best Kirby game until Kirby Super Star Ultra came out, which is just the same thing except with some added stuff.

    Imagine when you get each power, a whole moveset is available to you. So great.

    no, but like I said, each power has way more abilities than any other Kirby game.

    Mori, I am a bit late. But my main guy who has gone through Origins and Awakening is a dual wielding warrior who also tanks for his group which for origins was Wynn, Morrigan and Leliana. Never had a problem. So you can run fine without a sword and board warrior.

    Your post doesn't really address my concern.

    Which is that riding pets with unique powers based on the powers you absorbed was pretty goddamn awesome.

    And this game doesn't have that.

    So how can it be the best Kirby?

    Yeah, unfortunately until we find a way to do better compression for high def we're not going to stop using physical media anytime soon, even with broadband. I mean hell, even streaming Netflix in HD takes like four or five gigs of bandwidth. A good 1080P download from live marketplace is like 8 gigs on average, and last time I rented an HD movie it still took me like an hour of downloading before it was buffered enough to start, and I couldn't fast forward.

    Good H.264 encodes can get a 1080p stream down to about 10 mbps without sacrificing any quality. That's about 2 and a half hours of 1080p FMV in 12GB. So yeah, I guess even with the best we have today, it's still too slow. 720p is much, much more viable. A film fits into about 4GB at reasonable quality and can be streamed over most any broadband with just a little buffering.

    For some reason, most services don't hit that sweet spot.

    A kirby that combined Super Star's power depth with Crystal Shard's power hybrids and Amazing Mirror's Metroid style exploration would be amazing.

    My standard battle plan for non-dragon hard fights.

    Rogue stealths in, sets up trap, crit shots a bad guy, runs to the rest of the part. Warrior has threaten on, whirlwinds. Drop mass paralyze and sleep on enemies. Throw on living nightmare. Clean up. Rinse and repeat.

    Casters get petrify/stone fist. Or cone of cold/stone fist. With Awakening, use the dual wield combo on those I can't instant kill so they are slowed, on the floor and getting chain critted for about 100 a shot from my insane axes.

    Honestly I rented Surrogates in HD from xbox live in 1080 and then watched it in 720 on Netflix Streaming and I couldn't tell a difference between the two.

    I'm fine with 720 being the standard for streaming if it would help the market shift toward digital distribution.

    Yeah I looked it up, that must have been my imagination. I thought I did it in the game boy game, but looking at a writeup of it, I think I was wrong.

    My runthrough with a mage, I loved that one spell that made a baddie into a bomb, and when he died he would explode and cause others to become a bomb.

    Combine that with the ice cone and stone fist to shatter the enemy. :lol:

    I played it on normal or hard. I don't remember which, but I know I had to watch friendly fire. And living bomb though fun, could be dangerous to put on stuff that wanted to get in my face. Great on archers/casters though.

    Also have a templar use its range aoe stun on a group of casters was the most awesome thing ever.

    mine was much simpler,

    warrior charges in and taunts everyone.

    mage casts forcefield on warrior.

    2 bow rogues and a fireball kill everything.
