You should at least try it on the Wii.

I agree. Kirby 64 is a great game. It is easily one of the best on the N64 and one of the best in the Kirby series.

Honestly Kirby on N64 wasn't too great. I beat it myself about two years ago. I remember little about it other than I was underwhelmed.
PLAY KING'S FIELD.

It's way better than Mario 64 though.

My first game beaten in 2015, man, been putting too much time into WoW and Madden.

1. Wasteland 2

I backed the Kickstarter and was absorbed in this game right after release and pumped a bunch of hours in. At about 80% I started to slow down, but that was more due to other games, and not from a lack of interest. I will say the game might be slightly too long. Character development, besides getting more HP, and maxing out a few skills, kind of stagnates. I think I put about 60-65 hours into this play-through.

Overall, I really enjoyed the game. I love the tactical turn based battles, though, it would have been nice if the combat was a little more in depth. But either way, it was satisfying. The game really excels in the dialogue and atmosphere. They did an excellent job and plopping you into this desert wasteland apocalypse and do it with just the right level of humor and grittiness. I really wished I had put more time into the original, as there are a bunch of references, story and character wise, that would've enhanced the experience. But it stood well enough on its own. I am hoping they make a Wasteland 3 and don't wait another 20 years.

Kirby 64 completely ignores the 3D trend - this is a 2D game. Well, 2.5D. Everything's at an angle and the levels "curve" as Kirby progresses, but he can only walk left and right.
Sounds a lot like Yoshi's Story, which rules and gets similarly forgotten or dismissed. I'm sold, and will definitely pick up a copy to play during the summer.

We are opposites. I still need to play Yoshi's Story!

I really wish they would bring back the powerup mixing from Kirby 64, that was the best innovation in the Kirby series.

I thought Kirby 64 was great. It does feel a bit more sedate than some of the others, though. My least favorite, honestly, is probably Kirby's Dream Land 3, which is still a good game.

I've been out of commission for the last week, not much gaming, but did finish Gunman Clive 2.
