Wii Exclusive: Kirby's Epic Yarn

Kirby's Epic Yarn wove itself into gamers' hearts this year with its syrupy-sweet fabric-based visuals and decidedly unpunishing difficulty. Bead-collection, hidden items, and creative level-design help keep more experienced gamers engaged, but young kids and those who don't usually game will also find themselves hard-pressed not to have tons of fun with the little pink hero. Kirby's shape-shifting abilities keep the action fresh, and optional mini-game-based levels do a lot to extend the experience. Read more »

Japanese developer and publisher Capcom has reported a staggering 90.4% drop in net income for its 2011 fiscal year's first quarter compared to the same period last year.

Monster Hunter Tri Hands-on Preview

Capcom and Nintendo are trying to finally trying to hit it big in North America with the Monster Hunter series, wildly popular in Japan, through the new Wii-exclusive Monster Hunter Tri. The previous versions, available on PlayStation 2 and PSP, have enjoyed niche success outside of Japan, but Tri is easily the most accessible entry to date.

I got to play a quick 30-minute demo of the game on the floor of GDC 2010 with the help of a Nintendo employee's direction. It was this simple instruction by another human being that made the game suddenly click for me. I had dabbled previously with Monster Hunter Freedom Unite on the PSP, but didn't stick around long.
