Review: Kirby: Triple Deluxe photo
Review: Kirby: Triple Deluxe
by Chris Carter

Whenever a new Nintendo system is released, it's inevitable that a Kirby game will appear on it. Whether it's a console or a portable, or that game is a racing, golf, or standard platformer is uncertain, but you will get Kirby in some form or another.

The 3DS' gift is Kirby: Triple Deluxe, which closely resembles the SNES classic Kirby Super Star, albeit with a few less minigames packed in. But with the strong showing of a fun casual Smash Bros. clone and a King Dedede rhythm game, this is one of Kirby's strongest showings yet.

Best Nintendo commercial this year

HAHAH! Wow, Nintendo. Intense much? Gotta love those lyrics, too.  By the way, I'm playing Kirby: Triple Deluxe and it's fantastic. You'll see when it comes out next month for 3DS.

Review: NES Remix 2 photo
Review: NES Remix 2
by Chris Carter

NES Remix was able to scratch an itch for many retro enthusiasts out there, but it lacked a certain spark that made it a must-buy for the average gamer. It would be hard to really consider half of the selections "classic," and it lacked any real extras beyond a hit-or-miss array of remixed stages.

But the second time is a charm in this case, because with heavy-hitting newcomers like Kirby's Adventure, Punch Out!!, and Metroid on top of returning franchises like Mario and Zelda, NES Remix 2 really knocks it out of the park in terms of its selection.

Hey gang! Sorry I wasn't around on Tuesday, but there wasn't a whole lot of news -- so here's a rundown of today's big news, including yesterday's big ol' Nintendo Direct, that new realistic medieval RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and the Xbox One's upcoming documentary series on the E.T.

Guys, there's a new 3DS Kirby game in development!
by Chris Carter

Before today's Nintendo Direct could conclude, Iwata had just one more announcement -- a brand new Kirby game is coming to the 3DS in 2014!

I mean, sure, it looks exactly the same as pretty much every Kirby game in the past, but the Kirby series hardly ever attempts to transcend a basic platforming experience. And you know what? I still enjoy it.
