Kirby's Epic Yarn
Guess what just arrived in stores today? I'm an old-school gamer, as if you couldn't guess, heh heh. So I'm rooting for Kirby's Epic Yarn and hope it becomes a hit. Sometime after the Vikings-Cowboys game, I'll give it a spin. Early reviews have been enthusiastic, and it's a bit funny to see all these macho boys suddenly turn into gooey teenage girls. This may be the "cutest" video game ever created.
Success breeds success. New Super Mario Bros DS led to Super Mario 5 on Wii. Now we are seeing the new Kirby, and next month, the new Donkey Kong Country. I hope Nintendo is paying attention. Now if we could only get more games like this, and fewer vanity projects like Metroid: Other M and Super Mario Galaxy 2. Please please please let this game be good.
