    Hoshi no Kirby Yume no Izumi Deluxe

    Easy breezy (but most importantly) fun.

    I've had this game for about 7 hours now and must admit that it's one of the easier Kirby games. You can breeze through a lot of the levels without much trouble. But honestly it's such a fun game that...

    A damn fine Pokemon spin-off game. The sequel rocks too!

    Pokemon Stadium, like its follow-up, is a very unique experience. You can either battle in different ways (1 on 1, 1 on 3, 2 on 2, etc, etc.) or play mini games which are seriously fun and varied in d...
