Games & Gear of 2014 – Kirby: Triple Deluxe

 

Kirby Kirby Kirby, is the name you should know,

Kirby Kirby Kirby, he’s the star of the show,

He’s more than you think he’s got maximum pink, Kirby Kirby’s the one!

Yes indeed Kirby is the one and he’s back in another awesome game titled – Kirby: Triple Deluxe. This time Kirby is going to save the self-proclaimed King of Dreamland, King Dedede, from an unknown threat that took off in a giant Dreamstalk (a beanstalk, but dreamier). Which is no problem for the pink wonder as now the powers that be (aka Nintendo) finally saw reason and gave the boy back his toughness from Super Star meaning a better health bar and ability to block. Seriously Kirby is tougher than 95% of the video game characters out there and doesn’t need to lose his powers on a single blow. Speaking of which, his copy powers returns in a big way. Classics like sword and fire are more effective than ever, and brand new abilities like archer and leaf will keep players happy and enemies on their toes. Players can even take a break from saving the King and play multiplayer against rival Kirbys for complete Kirby dominance! They even brought back mini-games to play to challenge your skills and broaden your smile. What else do I have to say, get Kirby: Triple Deluxe and get your May on right.

The Fall of Games: The Wii U price drop and 2DS announcement

That’s right people, although the weather may not seem like it, September marks the beginning of fall- and thus the ‘Fall of Games’! Where all the game companies, big and indie, vive for your bingatude for the holidays. Well I’m proud to say this year Nintendo leads the charge with console news. As you all know the Wii U came out almost last year and are starting to get new games that show the capabilities. However their time as the only next gen system out there is coming to a close. The PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One are looming right around the corner, so in order to get more attention and make their choices more appealing to late adopters they came up with two deals. One: on the 20th of this month the deluxe version of the Wii U (you know the sweet black one) will knock off $50 off its price and be a cool $300 retail. The other news is that a new Nintendo 2DS will be available on Oct.12, which is basically a 3DS without the 3D. Me, I think the 3D part is the most important part, but it’s hard to argue with the $129.99 price tag.  So with cheap next-gen systems with a library of games on the Nintendo side, the Fall of Games starts strong. However Sony and Microsoft have not even begun to fight – stay tuned.
