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.
The first episode of Game News Haikus went over pretty well with people who watched it. If you're one of those people, thanks for taking the time. If you're not, maybe watch that one and the new one and every future episode?...
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 development hell for years. That clay-based Loco Roco game for the PlayStation 3 never happened. Maybe worst of all, Dominique Pamplemouse is not yet a million seller. What the heck, guys!?
Looking at how few clay-focused games have made it to the market makes Kirby and the Rainbow Curse an even more interesting part of Nintendo's overall strategy. It's both safe and risky at the same time. This is not Kirby's first foray into the world of arts and crafts, and Nintendo has toyed with the idea of clay graphics before. The cover art for the first and last issues of Nintendo Power were made from clay, and a lot of the promotional material from EarthBound used clay models. It's clear that Nintendo has been toying with clay for a while, but Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is the first time it has finally gone all the way clay.
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...
Tales of Zestiria was the best-selling game in Japan last week, netting over 340,000 sales in its domestic debut, according to data compiled by Media Create.
For reference, here's how previous entries in the series fared in t...
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.
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?
[Swery is the man behind Deadly Premonition and D4. The latter has kept him busy over the last year, so he hasn't been able to finish every game he loves. But love is not finite, finished, and with an eyebrow game this on point, Swery's offered to tell us all about the games he loves anyways - Steven Hansen]
At first, I'd just like to make one thing clear. I think that all the games on this list are excellent, top-quality games. I haven't completed them due to personal reasons, and this in no way affects my evaluation of them. I love all games from the bottom of my heart.
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is out in a couple months, so Nintendo is starting up the hype train for the clay puffball's adventure. We had previously heard that multiplayer would involve additional players platforming as Wad...
The last three times I've written about Club Nintendo rewards, Kirby made his way onto the list. That trend continues today with the new set of game offers available until January 19, 2015:

Nintendo has revealed the Japanese boxart for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse and hot damn it looks delicious, er, I mean beautiful. That stylus is just drawing all over that delicious cake, which kind of pisses me off, but ...

In Europe, Club Nintendo members can spend their points on the 46-track Kirby: Triple Deluxe soundtrack. The CD costs 2,000 Stars and listening to it will make you feel good, I bet.
Not exactly relevant to me as an American, ...
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."
The French Super Smash Bros. site has a nice little gallery up with Wii U and 3DS screens of everyone's favorite Brawler, Meta Knight.
Hoping for any other stragglers to get announced, or new characters?
