December 2019 : Kirby’s Dream Land (1992)


It’s December, so that means Yokoi Kids is two years old! Who would have thought it lasted this long!? Thanks to everybody who kept a game-of-the-month collective for a dead console alive and kicking. Anywho, this month’s game is shocker that it hasn’t been picked yet.
It was picked by Epicluca who had this to say about it:
 “Now what to say about Kirby’s Dream Land? You would think not much as it’s a fairly simple, short game that certainly is a product of its’ time, and you would be right, but it’s also so much more than that. Kirby’s Dream Land started a franchise that has lasted to this day, but was also a game that came out right around the time I started playing video games, so it holds a special place for me in that respect. And while not my favorite Kirby game, it is one that I can keep coming back to as I have beaten it countless times over the years, most of which came when I was a kid, as well as many times as an adult, really just showing it off to others who are unfamiliar with the game as it is one that is worth sharing with everyone. I personally think this is a top tier game for the Gameboy and one that you can easily pick-up and play.”

It can be picked up for $10, but you probably already have it. It’s also on the Nintendo 3DS store. Get on it!

Cursed Sandtraps – EpicLuca

I can’t believe I played a full 18-hole course of this. It was the same thing throughout, just hit the ball with the club over and over again until you somehow fumble your way through.  Yet, this was nowhere near as bad as Ken Griffey Jr. – EpicLuca

Tetris – EpicLuca Reviews.

  Really, I have no idea what in the world to say about Tetris, except that the NES version was one of the first two games I ever played, and I feel spoiled from all of the modern games after going back and playing this with none of the helpful additions that the later games have. – Luca
