When Kirby's Epic Yarn was announced, many people thought Nintendo was stringing us along, that the game would be poorly stitched together or otherwise patchy. A 2D platformer with a cute gimmick runs the risk of being threadbare, but it would appear that developer Good Feel has it all sewn up. You might worry that the bad yarn puns are a bit woolly, but I refuse to change my material.

Before the review begins, I feel it's my duty to warn anybody who considers purchasing this -- there's barely any mention of the Moon at all. In fact, the Moon appears in the campaign's end credits more than it appears in the game itself.  Transformers: Dark of the Moon is a big lie.

In some circles, the Green Lantern movie and games have been a major success. So much so that the folks at WB have decided to give fans a chance to peek behind the curtain at the making of Rise of the Manhunters. They're definitely right about one thing, Green Lantern (Hal Jordan, specifically) is a fantastic super hero. The jury may be out on the movie and games, but he's a damn good character.
