PAX Australia – Games, Games, Games

Welcome to PAX Australia!  The games had begun before the Expo even opened, with an epic game of “smack the beach ball over the sign“! Each goal was encouraged by massive cheers and an obscure angle shot was rewarded with oooo’s and aaaa’s.

Kirby’s Adventure – 30 cent entry fee to Camp Kirby

Kirby has always been a cool character in my books but I’ve only appreciated him from a distance until now. Cute, a bit sassy, versatile; however I’ve never played his games for some reason. Not that they looked bad, I just have more serious games to play and never owned a NES to see where it all started. So far I’ve bought every Wii U classic game, because 30 cents is basically a gift. Balloon Fight, F-Zero, Punch Out; I played each of them for at least a few hours and had a good time appreciating their mechanics. The GamePad is just so comfortable and sharp that I want to play every game ever made on it, and these are the kind of games that never lose their magic touch. Kirby’s Adventure came out a few days ago so I grabbed it, looking forward to sampling another classic on the GamePad. I ended up playing through the entire game and beating it in two marathon sittings, completely engaged.
