Sunday Roundup: 10/12/14

New Games (10-12-14)A strange week this week. I can’t recall any other week in which I bought this many loose games (garage sales notwithstanding). As the DS is reaching the last few months of its lifespan at retailers shelves, the likelihood of finding any games complete anymore is a dream which only occasionally comes to fruition. With that in mind, I decided to peruse the loose DS game stacks at three separate GameStop’s and came up with some great finds! Now I’m actually curious about other loose finds at other stores, so I think I’m going to be looking through those racks more often. Oh, and more games from eBay! Yay!!

This Week in Gaming News: 6/9/12 – 6/15/12

Have you ever thought to yourself, “Man, I wish I could just skip out on playing the game for hours on end and just buy the best items in the game!” Well this week Blizzard makes your wishes come true with the Diablo III real money auction house!

Outside of video game economic news, there’s a nifty new gaming trivia site out there, as well as an equally nifty online 90’s gaming quiz. Oh, and something concerning the Left 4 Dead series

Review: Kirby’s Return to Dream Land

Nintendo is magic. That’s the only way I can describe the company. Whenever they release a new game in an old franchise I feel like a kid again. It takes me back to the early 90’s when I grew up exploring Hyrule, saving the Mushroom Kingdom, and escaping planet Zebes. Now I’ve returned to Dream Land with Kirby’s Return to Dream Land for the Wii. Ditching the yarn in favor of a more traditional outing, Kirby inhales enemies, copies abilities, and positively drips nostalgia. Oh, and did I mention the co-op adventure mode?

Sunday Roundup: 10/30/11

Only one new title this week, but it’s a good one. And one that is legitimately new, not just a used game from the 90’s. Huzzah!

Now Playing: Kirby’s Return to Dream Land

A brand new Kirby game is upon us, and thankfully Kirby has returned to both the consoles and his sucking roots (Sucking in a good way). Kirby’s Return to Dream Land is the first true Kirby game on the consoles since the Nintendo 64 title Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards released way back in 2000. So how has the game been so far? Read on, my good friends, read on.

Review: Kirby Mass Attack

When thinking of the Kirby series of games my mind eventually focuses on the main fundamental of the franchise: gobbling up baddies and copying their powers. I’d say it’s fair to say that’s been the core of the franchise outside of Epic Yarn, which is why I was surprised to find none of that in the newest Kirby title, Kirby Mass Attack for the Nintendo DS. I was about to get my Kirby fanboy rage on, but when I played the game all that rage went away, and all that was left was the fuzzy feeling of satisfaction that only the pink puffball can give me. Kirby Mass Attack is coming out on the tail end of the DS’s lifecycle, and though it doesn’t follow the same formula as other Kirby games, it’s an excellent swan song showcasing everything the DS has to offer.

Sunday Roundup: 9/25/11

A note about this week’s roundup: I enjoy buying games that are both considered classics, and games that simply look fun. Also, I’m a fan of older games, which should explain the amount of old PS1 titles here. Without further adieu…

Initial Thoughts: Kirby Mass Attack

Oh, Kirby. For being a short guy with stubby arms he sure does make some quality games. His latest adventure, Kirby Mass Attack, ensures that the Nintendo DS goes into retirement right. I’ve gotten about halfway through the game and am already liking the adventure into Dreamland. This Kirby has a lot to offer that his other game’s don’t, so read on and find out…
