Made my first rotating avatar, rotates between pictures of Kirby, Elline, and Bandana Dee (clay forms from Rainbow Curse btw).

My sig is a snapshot of Rainbow Curse just before the Kirby Rocket transformation in Red Volcano.

KBB is epic, why is it so low?
It's literally just a Breakout clone and has very little to do with Kirby.  It's an okay game, but an easy loser.
Looking at this now...I see I misunderstood KBB to mean Block Ball...now I see you probably meant Blowout Blast.  Yeah, that's one of the ones I haven't played; it looks fun, but simplistic.  Hard to rank a game when I've played very little like it, though.

Also, recently finished Rainbow Curse.  An absolutely amazing game that I'd recommend to anyone.  Rest in peace, Rainbow Curse, as that Elline spirit in Ultimate is probably one of the only references you're ever gonna get.

Officer Baby Luigi: Oh no, not this purple idiot again. What did he do this time, steal 5 dollars worth of goods from the store?
Meta Knight: Nope, this time he was caught stealing some power-ups from a nearby Toad House.

Nabbit: *robs Toad House*  He he he!  The cops aren't watching!  And no Mario in sight!  Now I can finally rob the Toad House and get away with it!

B. W. Dee: Looks like you have your first target, King.

Dedede: *jumps out of bushes* Hey!  Stop right there!

Nabbit: It's the king!  Gotta get away!  *runs at top speed, dropping all the stolen items along the way*

Dedede: Oh, dangit, he got away!  Now I'll never be popular...

B. W. Dee: It's okay, Majesty.  There's always next time.  And look!  He dropped all the stolen merchandise!

*Dedede picks up all the stolen merchandise and enters the Toad House*

Dedede: Here's your stolen items back, Toad.  Unfortunately, the thief got away, but I think everything's accounted for.

Toad: Hey, thanks, King!

???: Where do you think you're going, Nabbit?

*Dedede runs out of the Toad House and sees a dark figure confronting Nabbit.  The figure steps into the light, revealing himself to be Meta Knight.  The cool Meta Knight music plays*

Nabbit: Meta Knight!  Oh no!  Not 20 more hours of community service...

Meta Knight: That's for the judge to decide in court.  But you're coming with me.

*Meta Knight takes Nabbit to the police station*

King Dedede whacks you with his ultra-powerful Dedede Hammer.

Escargoon: Thought up of that plan of yours yet!

Dedede: Not quite...

???: May I be of assistance?

*??? throws off his cape, revealing himself to be Meta Knight.  The Meta Knight music plays*

B. W. Dee: Meta Knight!  Can I have your autograph?

Dedede: Autographs can wait.  Meta Knight, I need your help!  I'm supposed to be the main character of this roleplay, and my spotlight's been stolen!

Escargoon: You're supposed to be the main character?  Really?

Meta Knight: I hear there are high crime rates in town.  Perhaps you can try helping to control that.  Then you'll be more popular in an instant.

Dedede: Hey, that's a great idea!  Dedede-Man!  Super-ultra-crime-fighter!  Watch out, villains, cause here I come!  Escargoon!  Bandana Dee!  We leave now!

B. W. Dee: Oh yeah!  Let's do this!

Escargoon: Oh, Dedede...

I'm thinking that 3D World will be the only extra style at launch, and they'll add Mario USA in an update.

Yeah, they'll probably find something to lock behind 100 Mario.  But there's at least a sliver of hope in the fact that the 3DS port of the first game had 100 Mario with no content locked behind it...but that port was so lazy that they probably won't replicate that.

True, but as far as we know, They might not even have 100 Mario in the sequel.
They've already shown something called Endless Challenge, which basically is 100 Mario but with no end.

If there is no end to it, then it technically can't be beaten, which means they can't lock anything behind it.
Might have content locked behind getting a certain score.

Kirby Air Ride

Played a 99-lap race on Fantasy Meadows, mainly to unlock Nebula Belt as quickly as possible.  I finished last, as usual, but at least the 34-minute race paid off, as I can race on Nebula Belt now.  I tried it out in Time Attack; it has that Rainbow Road feel, being the final track in the game set in space, but it's much less tricky than I expected.  Probably a good thing, as it puts the emphasis less on dodging stage hazards and more on the battle royale.  Should probably play a real race on it sometime.

My next goal will probably be to unlock Dedede and Meta Knight.  I currently use Kirby atop the Warpstar because of its balanced stats, but I just want to play as Dedede for the sheer fun of playing as Dedede.  Even though his stats will probably have the stats of a heavyweight.

And unfortunately, I can't sign up.  Really wish I could, but my 3DS is busted and I don't think I can get a new one by the sign-up deadline.  Sorry!

That's too bad. Maybe you can use someone else's, if there is another in your house?
Three of my siblings have 3DSs, but I doubt I'll be able to use them frequently enough to play this.  Perhaps I could use an emulator, but I'm not sure if it will run at a playable speed and keyboard controls suck.

Best case scenario, I can round up more money so I can buy a $60 2DS before mid-June.  But I'm afraid that's not too likely.

Also which Rainbow Road? There is the 3DS Rainbow Road and the SNES Rainbow Road.
LTQ holds polls in his tourneys to decide, so I expect that it'll be similar here.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse (Wii U)

Beat this game, and loved every second of it.  Or at least I would say that, if I had done the whole thing in single player.  However, I did a lot of it in multiplayer, and while that definitely had some upsides, there are downsides too.  For example, special minibosses called Grab Hands will show up at certain points in the game during multiplayer.  Kirby can't attack them at all, so you have to rely on your Waddle Dee buddies to help you out.  And if they decide to be incompetent fools and just let them take you away while they make some humongous grins...you'll naturally grow a passion for hating Grab Hands.  Also, certain levels such as Wonder Space (7-3) are clearly not designed around multiplayer, and are a total nightmare when you have three Waddle Dees playing with you...which I did at that point.  But it's still multiplayer, and it's pretty well designed for the most part, so I still had a fun time.

Anyway, some other things I liked about this game.  The story is pretty dang great; while it's not super dark like most Kirby games nowadays, it's still unique and sometimes even gets a little emotional.  I'll put a summary in a spoiler tag, just in case there's someone else who happens to be playing a 2015 Wii U game in 2019 (or perhaps in case of the unlikely event that they port the game to Switch).


Another strong point of the game was the collectibles.  Most stages have five treasure chests (although some stages only have four, while boss stages have none).  Each treasure chest contains either a collectible figurine or a music track.  The figurines are a lot like Smash trophies being 3D models with a full 3D camera and flavor text.  The music tracks are legacy remixes from past Kirby games, and interestingly, one of the tracks is even a remix of another Rainbow Curse track.  There's one other collectible, the pages of Elline's Secret Diary, and these are my favorite by far.  Rather than obtaining them from treasure chests, the diary pages are obtained at the Goal Game at the end of every stage.  Every normal stage has its own diary page to collect, so if you miss it in the Goal Game roulette, you'll have to start the stage over to receive its diary page.  But it's definitely worth it; Elline's diary is just the prettiest thing to look at, due in part to the fact that everything on the page, even the text, animates.  Looking at a picture of one of the pages on the Internet really isn't the same experience.  Trust me, filling up the diary is well worth the effort.

The soundtrack may very well be my favorite part of the game.  Remember how I said that this game has some collectible legacy remixes?  That's just the icing on the cake.  The game itself has a soundtrack that holds its own; it not only has the best soundtrack of any Kirby game by far, but it has one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard from a game, period!  The final boss theme in particular is absolutely amazing, and is sure to give Zero-Two and Void Termina a run for their money.  But really, listen to literally any track in the game, and you'll have a pretty good idea of just how great the soundtrack is as a whole.  Man, HAL has got to hire these composers to work on other Kirby games!

And who would I be if I didn't mention the gameplay?  The gameplay might be the most unique thing about the game.  If you've ever played Canvas Curse, the gameplay here is pretty similar.  You draw lines on the screen for Kirby to roll on, and you tap him to make him perform a Dash attack.  When you collect 100 stars, Kirby will charge up a very powerful Star Dash, which you can execute by holding down Kirby with the stylus.  As mentioned before, there's multiplayer too; players 2, 3, and 4 can play as differently-colored Bandana Waddle Dees.  Bandana Waddle Dee's controls are much more traditional than Kirby's; D-Pad to move, 1 to attack, and 2 to jump.  They can jump multiple times (but not infinitely), walk on the rainbow ropes created by player 1, and can pick up and throw Kirby.  There are also multiplayer-exclusive minibosses called Grab Hands, and I've already explained before how awful they are if you're player 1.  But my siblings seem to really enjoy them because I'm completely useless when fighting them, so there's that too, I guess.

That about sums up everything I have to say about this game (the clay-themed aesthetics are also absolutely beautiful, but I'll let you judge that for yourself).  Probably my favorite Kirby spinoff there is, and easily cements itself as one of my favorite games of all time.

He and Starlow are the only M&L characters (besides Mario and Luigi, of course) to have appeared in three different installments of the series.  While Starlow is probably more iconic to the series as a whole, Fawful is definitely more popular among fans of the series.  So at least among fans of the series, Fawful is definitely very popular.

Oh yeah, I should mention that Fawful also has his own Wikipedia article for some reason, and he's the only M&L OC to have one.  Not even Starlow has one.

Popular within that sub series sure but to the world at large? Not really. In fact he's pretty much only got a fanbase here in the west.

Also anybody could get a wikipedia article if they bothered to make one.
Yeah, outside the M&L series, Starlow's the only one people might know.  But the fact that someone bothered to give Fawful a Wikipedia article is a testament to his popularity.

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Smithy...is...too...hard!

No, seriously, I can't beat him no matter how hard I try.  There's an insane difficulty spike between Smithy and Gunyolk, the boss that came just before him.  In his first phase, he has about 2000 HP, which is just a little more than Gunyolk had.  But no, ending there would make for a disappointingly easy and underwhelming final boss, so they couldn't end there.  But his second form?  About 8000 HP.  Absolutely insane.  My strategy is to make Princess Peach use Group Hug every turn to ensure that my other members are never low on HP, but even that can't stop him from using a series of attacks that, when combined, make an OHKO attack which cannot be blocked or otherwise circumvented.  It's irritating and ultra cheap, to say the least.  I daresay I'm struggling with this guy even more than I did the Axem Rangers!

So far, I've mostly been using a team of Mario, Mallow, and Peach.  I did once try a team of Mario, Bowser, and Geno, but that ended pretty quickly since I didn't have Peach.  Maybe I should replace Mallow on my original team with Bowser or Geno...



Kirby and the Rainbow Curse

I beat Red Volcano, the sixth level of seven.  All that's left is Purple Fortress, and three stages are all that's between me and Claycia.  I have every Secret Diary page up through this point.  I can now confidently say that Elline is one of my favorite secondary Kirby characters, up there with Escargoon, Gooey, and Ribbon.  Also, I should mention that I encountered a couple airship levels with the Kirby Rocket transformation, and they both had these epic escape sequences at the end that gave me a run for my money.  Gonna try and beat the game tomorrow, probably alongside a couple (possibly troublesome) Bandana Waddle Dees.
