Now all that's left is Kazooie in Animal Crossing Switch.

i like the island thing for the animal crossing game, it looks like an expansion of the public works projects aspect where you build townstuff from the ground up. it's also a new direction of the series, and it gives more places to fish for sea creatures than the southern parts of the town

And Kirby needs a break too, it's games are starting to feel too samey.
Look, I respect your opinion on the frequency of Mario RPGs, but I don't seem to get your point with Kirby.  Even if the mainline games feel a bit samey, I already mentioned I was talking about the spinoffs, and being Nintendo's most experimental IP by a long shot, I'd be surprised if anyone called Kirby's spinoffs "samey".  Barring remakes, sub-game expansions, and Rainbow Curse, no Kirby spinoff has ever felt anything like another, and even Rainbow Curse had enough new ideas to separate it from Canvas Curse and call it its own thing.  I'm getting the feeling that you haven't really played any Kirby spinoffs at all.

Rant over.

And we just got a Kirby spin off not too long ago as well with battle royal. Kirby is good to relax for a while.
1. Battle Royale was a year and a half ago
2. It was unique and unlike any other Kirby game before it (even if it was just okay at best)

I still really don't see your point here.

My point is that Kirby is fine. Give it a break. All the constant spin offs/sub-games and bi-yearly releases was getting tiresome. Franchise fatigue was setting in something fierce.
Thank you for taking the time to read this sig. This sig loves you.

Don't worry about it. You're free to feel excited and look forward to whichever game series you like.

Excitement and fondness (within reason) demands no explanation.

Ah, I see what you're getting at.  Yeah, it can get tiring when new games keep coming out and you wind up with a long play queue with sameish games and it starts to burn you out.  But, I personally hold the stance that a series only necessitates a break if its recent games are all ultra-similar or if they're all consistently mediocre.  To me, with Kirby jumping into completely new game styles every couple years, each one offering new ideas rarely seen anywhere else, Kirby's more of a burnout-breaker; when I want to try a new game style, I turn to Kirby and his numerous unique spinoffs.  Kirby's diversity is the best part about the franchise, and even if the mainline games feel a bit samey, those spinoffs make sure that you always have new game styles to try in between.

But on the bright side of things, Kirby's absence from the Direct gives me more time to play more of his past adventures.  So I guess it's not too much of a loss.

I dunno, I liked Air Ride mode too, despite its over-simplicity.  Never really cared for Top Ride, though.

i liked top ride more than air ride. i don't think top-down racers that play in its manner are very common in games, so it's a pretty unique mode.

air ride's main issue are its ridiculously imbalanced vehicles and being a bit...bland at points. in most courses, there's no reason not to simply use the swerve star and there's almost no reason to use the terrible bulk star or rocket star

the bulk star does shine in offensive modes like destruction derby and vs king dedede though, and it has a very wacky glide mechanism for some reason.

I'd rank Kirby Air Ride modes as City Trial, Top Ride, Air Ride. Air Ride gets knocked for being absolutely basic and horrendous vehicle balancing that can't be solved with patches or having to find and compete to use that vehicle in the first place. It has a lot more options than single race, sure, but that's the only thing really going for it IMO. I like Top Ride just for being a fun, straightforward and unique side mode.

My main issue with Top Ride was that I never could get used to the controls.  Whenever I chose the Free Star, my thumb wanted Steer Star, and whenever I chose Steer Star, my thumb wanted Free Star.  It got annoying fast and as such I wound up playing Top Ride much less than the other two modes.

Adjusting between two stars do seem to take time getting used to. I remember sticking to Free Star for the longest time imaginable, but then I got used to Steer Star and I can't get back to Free Star. Dunno what the advantages are, just seems like pure preference, not unlike the alternate colors.

Pretty sure the only difference is control type (no stat differences or anything like that), but my stubborn thumbs can't get used to either one so what can I say.

You should probably challenge yourself to stick to one control scheme for all courses and challenges and maybe you'll get used to it eventually. or do a 99 lap session

i typically prefer going steer star because most racing games are like this

I normally go with Steer Star too because my thumbs seem to like that better, but that doesn't stop them from randomly going Free Star whacko on occasion.  Maybe I should try that 99-lap race and see how it goes.
