Gal*Gun Double Peace_20160721225454

From retail versions of Gal*Gun: Double Peace to the digital re-release of three Kirby titles, this week’s schedule of new game releases offers a number of familiar titles. The one entirely fresh title is Ghost Town Games’ Overcooked, which looks like it might earn a Michelin star for its madcap, multiplayer cooking antics.

Robert’s Pick: Sure, Masahiro Sakurai might best be known for creating Super Smash Bros., but at the tender age of 19, Sakurai-san crafted one of Nintendo’s most prolific properties, with the release of 1992’s Kirby’s Dream Land. This week, I’m tickled pink that Nintendo is devoting a week to the rotund hero, with a trio of Kirby titles. While Kirby’s Dream Course is a time-tested, whimsical take on miniature golf, it’s the digital re-release of Kirby’s Epic Yarn that stands as a high point for the main series. It you didn’t pick up the physical release back in 2010, make sure you give it a try. Also: you might want to check out the demo for Kirby: Planet Robobot, if you haven’t picked that up yet.

  1. Wait, didn’t that GunGal game come out already? I see the image in related articles…

  2. I’d glad to see other Kirby fans that are excited by Pink week.

  3. I have my eye on Gotta Protectors. Looks like it has a ton of content.

  4. Kirby’s Dream Course is so much fun. Its one of those carts I’ll never trade in. Every thanksgiving and Christmas when the family comes over, we break it out.

    • I need to play it. One of the game’s everyone always talks about and I need to experience.

  5. Gal*Gun: Double Peace, IF it comes out this week.

  6. I wasn’t a fan of Kirby Mass Attack. Too different from the typical Kirby games for me.

  7. I hope you review Gun Gal DP. (Interesting acronym)

  8. His is becoming my number one site for games about girls with blue hair.

  9. Kirby’s Epic Yarn was good but I’m sure you could find a physical copy for less than 20 bucks.

  10. I can’t wait for Batman: The Telltale Series.
