  1. @Zera

    Very good review after, it was enjoyable and interesting to read.

    Also yes, the powerups made weaker abilities from games better.

    Althoguh I would not say it is very balanced since weapons like

    Spoiler

    Morpho Knight Sword and Toy Hammer

    exis,t but by that some weapons I never used in former games like sword and needle are fun to use and can finish bossrushes fast or relatively safely now.

     


  2. Oh, sorry for being late, but thank you for all the birthday wishes!

    I appreciate it! 🙂

    Sadly I was too focussed into gaming yesterday (this is all what I did literally) to be here.

    I finished Oath In Felghana, Gurumin and the boss rush of Kirby Star Allies on hardest difficulty.

    Definitely will play more Ys games from now on since I really enjoyed the 2D Ys games so far.


  3. This is cool, but also quite huge. I do not know, how I will feel about it. Usually action RPGs have usually 3-4 playable party members. However if I am not mistaken switching characters during combat in Xenoblade was not possible, so it should not affect too much. If it should be possible, I could imagine it can become chaotic.

    That's the remake of Ys III isn't it? I played Ys III at the tail end of last year. Only game in the series I actually own... and I've had it since I was in the third grade and bought it. For $2 according to the price tag. I imagine it's gotta be a much improved version over the one I played. Because I recall there being an item called the fairy necklace... that did nothing. And cost a ton to buy. I can't imagine that not being fixed in a remake.

    Um, I do not know Ys III, but from what I just have watched, I highly doubt it.

     

    Anyways happy 30th birthday, Kirby!


  5. I started Ys The Oath Of Felghana. Made it to the Abanoned Mine. This game feels as great as Origin so far, with the exception not being an entire dungeon crawler and having voiceacting. Speaking of voiceacting, everyone has done a great job so far. However the most outstanding for me is the soundtrack (of course). All the dungeons feature a banger with guitars or strings. This is what I have missed in Ys VIII, aside of being 2D.


  6. Astrid is similar to Fiona for having great skill and class considering caps. However unless Fiona it is easier to give her some levels in her debut chapter because of paragon and having stronger allies. Her growths are worse, but paragon can fix. 


  7. @VangaurdForgotten Land has six worlds, not five.

  8. Yeah, some objectives cannot be done in the first attempt like beating a boss with a certain ability which I did not appreciate too much either.

    However some others rely on careful exploration.

    After all the objectives give the game replaybility.

    See, i knew who Morpho Knight was, but i didn't realize he was a recent addition to the Kirby lore. I have not played Star Allies, that game doesn't interest me too much.

     

     

    Spoiler

    Yeah, Morpho Knight = Galacta Knight as a butterfly

    the most mysterious character(s) in Kirby

    Star Allies is a mixed bag.

    The main game is easy, so kinda boring, but the free DLC makes up for it gameplaywise but also plotwise.

    Playing as a villain was quite fun for me, and the bossrushes were quite challenging (yet have to beat on highest difficulty).

    However of the modern Kirby main games still the "weakest" part although not bad overall.

    Ok this made up for it. Forgo Isles done. All that's left is Ultimate Arena Z, the final Treasure Road, and the gachapon.

    Spoiler

    Oh yeah, that omnious butterfly made an unexpected return.

    Anyways good luck!

    I think you need it the most fpr the gachapon.

    Actually it was balanced fairly, could get all capsules with way less attempts than expected.

     

    I started a new game yesterday which is Super Mario Sunshine (part of the 35th anniversary triology for Switch)

    finally

     

    Anyways time for a short review as promised earlier:

    Spoiler

    Forgotten Land has become my favorite Kirby game. However not only because of being 3D. There are some other points which stand out like quests and ability system. This game features some elements which can be found in a RPG which I absolutely appreciated. Wadde Dee Town was just an enrichment for the entire series. Having a flexible item on the journey is always helpful. The level design was very creative for the very most part, although not as free as I hoped for. Only 5-1 really stood out for being a widespread level which allows a lot of room for discovery. Even without being that huge the levels offers tons of secrets which can be missed, so this is not a big issue. The music is beautiful as always. However it is worth to mention that the soundtracks tend to be a lot longer than in former games which makes sense since much more time is needed to clear a level. The music gives a matching atmosphere to the exploration. I want to honor this theme which is one of the most beautiful stage themes I have heared yet. As for the gameplay the new addition of the mouthful modes is welcomed and executed very well for all the riddles. The levels are varied, and even standard gimmicks like bossrush reruns at the end are improved gameplaywise. This game has a postgame, similar to the DLC of Star Allies, which is like an EX mode with changed level design in familar enviroments with more difficult bosses. Considering of what this game offers, this game did not disappoint. It is not only a great game for Kirby fans, but also for newcomers who might have not been interested in 2D Kirby games. The game feels very similar to Mario Odyssey however with a restricted level size, and some ideas like water mouth mode are taken of games from the past. However they are executed better in my opinion.

    Overall this game was wonderful and easily a contender of becoming goty for me.

    9 / 10

    That one's good yes, but it's still pretty fast. Not that it's a bad thing, no Dedede theme is bad, it's just that the rhythm being slower in Roar of Dedede is what really sets it apart.

    Yes. Kirby music can go hard when it wants to.

    Oh, I totally understand.

    As said I love this heavy Dedede theme in Forgotten Land, but I kinda miss the catchyness which made me loving this series.

    Dededestroyer Z matched perfectly to its gameplay for being literally a party tune to a party game.

    Then again I love the music style (change) in Forgotten Land.

    It offers my favorite or second most favorite Kirby soundtrack (Rainbow Curse is close contender of being my favorite).

     

    I finished Ultimate Z (the pendant to True Arena) yesterday.

    With a forged weapon it is supereasy and superfast

    Just needed ten minutes which not even half as long as Robobot's True Arena.

    Extra final boss was just a compilation of bosses from former parts in one, so nothing really special.

    Decisive Battle: Ultimate Z - Kirby and the Forgotten Land OST [088] - YouTube

    As epic as this theme is, but why is this so long?

    You really will never hear the entire song since bosses are usually be done in two minutes at worst.

     

    @Saint Rubenio

    Bien!
