Review: Kirby's Epic Yarn (Crush! Frag! Destroy!)

CFD!'s Scott Thompson reviews Kirby's newest, craft-based adventure:

"Nintendo has a long-standing history of milking its franchises for all they’re worth. Zelda, Metroid, Star Fox; these once ground breaking series have fallen prey to playing it safe more often than not. In fact, the only mascot ever mucked with is Mario, which is surprising considering the great amount of success Nintendo has had when placing the famed plumber outside of his comfort zone. If Mario can thrive flying through space, driving go-karts, cleaning graffiti, and playing golf, surely another Nintendo legend can to do the same, no? Fortunately, it seems that HAL and Nintendo realized this point, and with that we get Kirby’s Epic Yarn, a game that deftly toes the line between revival and sequel while creating a gorgeous world of yarn and fabric."

I would totally love this game just for the whole "yarn & cloth" motif.

"Yarn and Cloth" should be a new genre.

"Arts and Crafts" specifically should work - get a sponsorship from Michael's or some other craft store. LBP and Paper Mario fit that theme too.

Yes. A thousand times yes.

Jeff Jensen is a cruel man. And wrong.

Though I never finished Kirby - I have no idea if it's garbage or not.
