They also gave DK Tropical Freeze, an objectively stellar game, a 6/10 and it's painfully obvious the reviewer didn't finish the game. Gamespot is basically click bait now.
Yeah I saw that in a cap someone posted in another thread. Basically along the lines of "too much water" IGN shit. "Games journalism", in any capacity before and after GG, is a total fucking joke.
When it comes to Gamespot, it's hit or miss. The 6/10 they gave to Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, for instance, was terrible.
I'll have to play Kirby to know if it sucks or if it doesn't, though.
I don't know if this game is worth $40.
I love Kirby, but this just looks like Canvas Curse made in a bakery. Don't really want to pay that much for a glorified NDS game.
Same here Anon. But I'm a sucker for cute dialogue, so I'll most likely pick this up.
>glorified NDS game
Why do you say it like DS games were inferior? It was the only platform worth a shit last gen.
Anyway, it's a sequel. You know how those work, right? If you enjoyed Canavas Curse go for it.
That review could very well be accurate. Kirby games are really plain, and play it safe so hard I have no clue how anyone finds enjoyment from them. The composers cant even be assed to make an ost without remixing the legacy music over and over again.
>tfw Kirby always gets the best spin offs
Mass Attack sequel when?
You burn more calories lifting heavy objects than cardio.
I mean, it's still good, and you should do at least a little bit weekly, but it's not the most optimal way to lose weight.

>implying I'm not browsing /fit/ as well as /v/
Nintendo Life are dumb, they gave Smash 10/10 as if they can't see any flaw with the game. They rate according to what the game/price/marketing is projecting, like big titles will get 9 or 10/10 and smaller titles 6 or 7. Polygon is probably close to the mark.
Oh wow numbers. Does that tell me something about the game? Besides, it's a Kirby game, I already know what to expect from that game.
The minus point was the nintendo tax all reviewers apply to Nintendo games because they don't bribe them like sony and micrsoft.
Intentionally docking points because it's from a certain developer? It's okay if you do it to Nintendo.
>mfw we're actually getting a sequel to Canvas Curse.
Nintendo why are you so good to me.
I was going to say useless, but wasn't sure that was the right term. Half of it is underrating/overrating, the other half is people taking them out of context which seems to happen all the time.
Seriously, why would they do this to us? Do they really think the same line drawing gameplay is enough to make me want to drop $40 on it? If it was more akin to Superstar/64/Return gameplay but with the cute clay graphics I'd already have that shit preloaded.
But I'm passing hard on mobile game gimmick Kirby

OOT 3d is going for like $80
I see Majora's Mask 3ds is going for well over $400 on ebay
Kid Icarus is going for $50 or more
Any other overpriced nintendo shit you want me to look up?
>mfw you're right
Why is it that expensive when you can still walk in a store and buy it?
Can't speak for Tropical Freeze, but DKCR was a great game after over a decade of no DK (the spin-offs don't count, though they did get better when PAON stepped in). If I recall, GameSpot just complained that it was too hard for them. Which is odd, because it's supposedly easier than DKCR.
How about do some fucking running if you're THAT compelled to do cardio?
Jesus christ, even an elliptical is better
When the fuck are we gonna get Bandana Dee's Mass Attack?
>Evil monster guy wants to take over dreamland, and is aware of Kirby
>tricks him into eating poison apple
>Kirby falls into a permanent sleep
>only thing that can wake him is the magical mguffin
>Bandana Dee assembles a squad of nine other Dees
>goes on adventure
This shit writes itself!
DKCR was a decent platformer with shitty uninspired enemies and world, with the DK characters pasted in and lackluster DK songs remixed into it.
Tropical Freeze was a true return to form, almost as good as DKC2. I'll never understand that GS review
DKCR was only harder due to waggle.
Tropical Freeze is harder than DKCR 3D
Holy shit I I just read the Tropical Freeze reivew
>"The game moves too fast"
>They removed the option to watch the game show you how to beat it
>Not enough checkpoints in boss levels
Jesus. The only part he liked was the rocket barrel cause it was "twitch gaming"
>it lacks the 'time and place' factor of canvas curse
>we think its worse but we don't know how to articulate this
Stationary bike is fine, especially the newer ones, but a mile on any kind of bike wont do shit because they were created to do that kind of distance much faster and with far less effort than walking/running.
why are you reading online internet reviews
they always have been shit and always will be.
Remember during the Wii days when Fire Emblem lost points for not having fucking Mii support?
The is the stupidest fucking complaint. One of their problems was that they never have to look at the TV to play the game. So what would make the game better? putting it on a device with a single screen, with a touch screen, kind of like some sort of gamepad.
The game is already on a tablet
>They finally remixed best KDL3 song
We have reached the point where kirby games have are too hard for certain reviewers.
Seriously, this chick is shit at the game. Everyone else had no problems with the controls.
I guess my reaction image implied disappointed. Meant to convey that I thought this shit sounded really great.
This is probably the best rendition of this theme I've heard
>Thought it looked cool when it was announced
>But not worth $60
>Check BB's website randomly for a different game
>See Kirby for $40
>Have GCU + $10 certificate
>Get comfy kirby for $23
I haven't touched Bayonetta 2 or Captain Toad though ;_;
I get the impression that a lot of the good reviews will be people looking back fondly on the DS version.
From what I've seen of the gameplay, this is slower, less difficult but more of a chore to play.
Absolutely. I played through Ducktales Remastered lastnight, and afterwards when I saw that Gamespot gave them 4/10 I immediately decided that I'd never believe one of their ratings again.
>mfw im gonna buy kirby, capt toad and mario party 10 and i dont give a fuck about smash or bayo2
That's a very untrue statement. Besides the staples like fountain of dreams and butter building, Kirby doesn't recycle music that much. Squeak Squad had a fantastic soundtrack as did Mass Attack and Triple Deluxe. Mass Attack actually has one of my favourite soundtracks of all time.
Stationary bikes are fine as long as you aren't sitting on your ass only moving your legs, gotta stand and move your whole body, otherwise whats the point, it's like those fat fucks that have been getting those under their desk pedal wheels at my office.
I took the pre-order I made for this and got MM3D instead. This game better not be out for a few months and then disappear into obscurity like Starfox 64 3D did, then it'd become the next Metroid Trilogy or Xenoblade.
>All those reviews complaining about Ducktales being too hard, followed by "WELL I NEVER PLAYED THE NES VERSION BUT"
I laughed my ass off all fucking night when the reviews first got published.
>barrels/carts take 2 hits to destroy
>no waggle that makes rolling and jumping a pain
>no poorly designed levels like the one where you have to jump from a minecart to another
The game was much easier than Returns
DTR reviews were some crazy shit.
>that one review where the reviewer threw a tantrum because he got a game over and had to restart the level
General cardio isn't good for jack shit other than keeping you from getting fatter. Unless you are doing some sort of resistance or high intensity cardio you aren't getting nearly the amount of return for effort
You can burn just as many calories doing yoga as you can jogging.
Wasn't there a Kirby game for the DS that had the exact same premise as this?
As in you draw paths with the stylus and roll Kirby to the goal?
Nintendo literally rehashing the game for wii u?
Maybe if you pedal like a faggot. All the people I've seen bashing cardio can't even run a 5 minute kilometre, that's how shit their shape is.
>It's clickbait if they don't agree with my opinion
Fuck off faggot you're part of the reason why game reviews are such pandering shit nowadays. Can't give bad scores to games without incurring fanboy rage
And I fucking LOVED tropical freeze. Easily the best 2D platformer I've ever played
Get it mayne. You never know what happen in life, some day you might be at a house party and youll be glad to have brought mario party 10 and everyone will think ur awesome and all the girls will like you cuz bitches love nostalgia.
I hear you man, been having a blast with this all day today
The most ridiculous part of it all is that if you want to do a casual playthrough, just select "easy" mode. There are NO LIVES at all, so you can die repeatedly with pretty much zero consequences, and being hit only takes away a half heart. Why would somebody who obviously isn't near good enough at the game choose to play it on normal or difficult?
>They removed the option to watch the game show you how to beat it
Didn't they bitch about it being there in the first place?
I remember that Mike dude (that rides AVGN's coattails) made a video bitching about the Super Guide like it was a personal insult, and rightfully got shat on for it.
>>Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is a tiring game. It's taxing without being rewarding, like doing a mile on a stationary bike and discovering that you only burned away calories from one bite of your lunch burrito. -- GameSpot
>Its Kirby's fault I'm obese!
>OOT 3d is going for like $80
Huh. I literally just saw it for $30 at Target. Guess I should scoop it up. Is it worth playing? I already have the original
DKCR is absolutely much harder (and better) than any Rare DK game.
Stationary bikes are fine but you gotta set the resistance up and put some actual work into it
I thought I was the only one that knew about Kirby's Dream Course. I used to rent that shit all the time, and it's easily one of the most overlooked Kirby games.
are you serious man. The method of control isn't always the heart of the gameplay but in this case clearly yes, the level design is built around the method of control. The game is fucking about drawing lines to move your kirby, that's it. It could have easily been named Canvas Curse 2 except that's not a good name for a game that's been half forgotten.
GTA from III onwards was always super casual, I was 8 when GTAIII came out back in 2001 and It was one of the easiest 18 rated games I had played and one I beat without a guide.
I wouldn't be surprised if it's "mature themes" overlaying casual gameplay passing itself off as a hardcore game is responsible for the modern industry.
>EGM's WERE STILL RELAVANT DAMMIT review of the game
>main complaint is how HD visuals are wasted when you're staring at the tablet and the fact that the world with 7 levels is called "Seventopia"
I hate all the kirby games with drawing mechanics
>been waiting ages for this game
>Wii U gamepad breaks days before it comes out
Call me a casual if you'd like, but although I loved this game, it was so fucking hard.
Years later, I played it on an emulator using save states. It gave me a good feel of what a Kirby's Dream Course game would feel like in this gen, since this gen consists of a bunch of babbys who can't handle dealing with actual consequences of sucking at a game. Do games even punish you for dying anymore?
>some day you might be at a house party and youll be glad to have brought mario party 10
See you can just play an older Mario Party game for that. There's literally not point of these new games that are worse party games than their predecessors. It's not like there's value in playing a new campaign or anything
This. I want to check this game out, but 40 is too damn much. Felt the same about Captain Toad and probably will about Yoshi. These kind of short comfy games are great but only if they're cheap.
The argument is that reusing a method of control does not equate to rehashing a game, it is in a completely different style and in a completely different world, it plays differently and has different gimmicks versus the original, and level design has changed to reference the visual style change.
It isn't the same premise as the DS game so it isn't Canvas Curse, it's like the difference between Paper mario and Super Mario RPG.
Oh absolutely not, but that doesn't take away from the fact that there are some moments where taking damage is seemingly unavoidable, so on hard mode it can be somewhat of a chore to play through it without getting at least a few game overs. But that's how a game SHOULD be. If you beat a whole game without getting a game over, then chances are they tried too hard at coddling you.
Example: DKC2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Even with the abundance of lives in the game, I'd still end up getting a game over eventually near the last worlds of the game. Because it had a difficulty level that wasn't flat out a complete insult to my intelligence.
>Don't want to pay $40 for this game
>Know if I don't buy it for $40 it's going to end up being an overpriced turd like every other nintendo game that isn't mario in 2 months
Well first, people nostalgia until they realize it looks like shit and not like in their memory, secondly getting a n64 is kind of complicated, more people have wiimotes etc. You don't need every Mario Party, but I have none, so why not get the first in HD.
Even the review the gamespot reviewer did made the game look like fun. It was hilarious how she was trying to make the controls look bad but just ended up making me think she sucked at videogames
>worse than its predecessors
I have not seen a mario game that was better or worse than the previous version, they are all the same fucking game.
The only people that seem to think otherwise is that it comes down too "BUT THEY WERE THE MINIGAMES I PLAYED AS A KID THEY ARE BETTER!"
>Do games even punish you for dying anymore?
Not really. But honestly I don't care anymore. Like Fire Emblem Awakening got shit within fans because it had an option to remove permadeath. I still played classic and resetting everytime someone died.
It's all part of that "broadening the audience" policy that videogame companies are trying to make and the result is more boring games
>game journalist pros trying to rig another game review
>Fire emblem people complaining about the option to remove permadeath
90% of the motherfuckers save scum anyway, there is literally no punishment to doing so and no reason to not save scum in fire emblem
Well I meant more from like a general standpoint, the only reason I disliked the Wii mario parties was because the motion controls were so unresponsive, but they have gotten a lot better at them so it is a moot point now
People say the car mechanic in 9 and 10 ruins the competitive aspect and forces you to work together.
These people have clearly never played the game since my asshole friends always made sure to force me into the stage hazards whenever we played.
How can anyone call himself reviewer if w101, Kirby and donkey kong are too hard for them?
Seriously, are reviewers just a bunch of old man in their 70s doing it as minimum wage job because proper journalism wont employ them anymore, because this is the impression i get
>giantbomb review loaded with Nintendo putting their games on iOS talk
>specifies this game as an example
>mfw thinking about Canvas Curse's harder levels without a stylus
>i want to play video games as a living!
you and 500000 other people int he world, youll come to terms with reality just like everyone else
So far most of Mario Party 10's minigames don't appear to be not motion controlled. In my opinion they look pretty fun as well.
None of them look like the half assed ones in previous games were you could win randomly or within seconds.
half their members were involved in gamergate and rigging articles/review scores
they gave gone home GOTY
and now are just a bunch of youtube-tier let's players with no credibility and no back bone
Lifting uses a lot of calories in recovery.
Don't dismiss cardio on whether it burns more or less though, it's far more beneficial for cardiovascular health than lifting. A combination of the two is a happy middle ground
