We all thought that Paperbeatsscissors had already conquered the Internet with this Hulk/Hulk designer t-shirt, but it turns out it was just getting warmed up. Now it has gone and made a new Tamagotchi-style virtual pet for y... read

Mondays are dumb, eat some Kirby snacks


I'm going to start writing for Garfield
Feb 23
I hate to ruin the magic, but it's not too difficult to make Kirby snacks. Is it round and pink? Yes? Then it's a Kirby snack. Is it not round and pink? Yes? I don't know what the hell you just did. How did you screw this up? It's like an "If, then, else" statement if I knew how to do that. Someone do it for me, and then I'll show you my attempt, which was probably hilariously off. read

I'm cute! I'm cuuuuuuuute!
Let's take a quick look at the history of videogames with clay-based graphics. Skullmonkeys is a one-off that most people don't even remember. The ClayFighter series has been dormant since the N64 days. Armikrog has been in d... read feature

Kirby ad makes curses look adorable and pleasant


That's not how curses are supposed to work
Feb 09
Curses aren't anything to scoff at. Anyone that's played Castlevania II: Simon's Quest knows that. So do Chicago Cubs fans, all too well. But, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse makes jinxing hijinks look so tolerable. Ma... read

Clay Kirby

Make your very own clay Kirby


Bonus behind-the-scenes photos
Jan 21
This is the good stuff right here. HAL Laboratory has a delightful little website with making-of photos for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse and a video showing how to create your own clay Kirby. Between this, The Neverhood, Skullmonkeys, and The Swapper, I find myself wishing that more developers would pick up a clay set. These handcrafted games will forever feel special. [Via NeoGAF] read
Kirby Wii U

Nintendo made a clay Wii U GamePad for this delightful Kirby trailer


=)
Jan 14
This Kirby and the Rainbow Curse trailer is like an abbreviated version of the Japanese trailer we saw last month. It once again touches on the game's claymazing intro, four-person co-op, and amiibo support for Kirby, Meta Knight, and King Dedede, but it's just so gosh-darned cute. This is out exclusively for Wii U on February 20, 2015. Who's in? read

Here's a new Smash assist trophy, Nightmare Wizard. Let's let Sakurai explain. "Nightmare Wizard appears as an Assist Trophy! He will engulf the stage in darkness, and fighters will need to brawl blindly for a while. Look out for the effect before it goes dark, and play it to your advantage. Blinding and reversal effects even make the computer players mess up." read
