Will get KDL3 since I never played it. How is it? I never played KDL2 either, should I play that first?

Metroid I have on 3DS, but I'll look into the DDP implications.

What is A Kappa's Tail?

Internet is down at work so I'll have to update the OP later.

Same questions I have.

@Guillaume

Ah, didn't realize it was DSiWare, I'll fix the OP.

And sounds intriguing. I'll probably hold off and see if anyone else gets it and posts impressions for now, but maybe I'll bite later.

I don't see why you would need to play KDL2 first. I think Kirby games kinda stand alone regardless of naming.

Plus, in my opinion KDL2 just isn't that good. I was hugely disappointed by it, after Nintendo made us wait so long for it, putting it on the eShop more than a year after Europe got it.

I loved KDL2 a lot as a kid and still hold it in high regard, but I'm just now realizing I haven't played it in probably fifteen years, if not more. And I remember thinking KDL3 was pretty disappointing after Kirby Super Star...but I seem to remember it being basically KDL2 but better. Weird how that works.

I think they're both on Kirby's Dream Collection, which I have...maybe I should give them another go sometime.

I feel like KDL3 was kind of a step backwards, as I didn't enjoy the Kirby's Adventure/KDL2 style of gameplay compared to Super Star. I really owe it to myself to play Return to Dreamland and Triple Deluxe one day. It sucks because I have Triple Deluxe in shrink wrap nearby for my nephew, haha, and I kinda want to just play it.

I might have to get 1080(what's the alt command for degrees?) just for the fantastic music. It's like someone took the three voice samples in Blast Corps and made them into full length songs.

Kirby's Dream Land 3 is my fave Kirby game, even compared to the other SNES Kirby, Super Star. I find the art style very charming and unique, plus the sprites are smaller so more can fit on the screen. Super Star sometimes feels claustrophobic with how huge everything is, it can be tough to see full areas and what's lurking just off the screen. The design of the game feels more focused and tight, which is another thing I appreciate, and I also liked the animal buddies and seeing what they can do with each power. I didn't really care that there were less moves with each power, because I didn't find the extra moves were very useful anyway, plus I didn't like having to remember them all.

I also played through the game in co-op, so I think that makes it more fun too, and will add some value for anyone who knows someone to play this game with.

The most common complaint I hear about this game is how the requirement for earning the star in each level isn't always apparent, and can take some trial-and-error. Although I think it's a valid complaint, it isn't something that bothered me. It's also a different sort of design from the Super Star line (which Return to Dream Land and Triple Deluxe followed), and so I think, if the only Kirby game you like is Super Star then you probably won't like KDL 3, but if you like others like Adventure, 64, etc., then you'll probably like KDL 3.

As for KDL 2, this game is basically a direct sequel to it, as 2 introduced the concept of the animal buddies, and then 3 expanded on it. The only reason I can think of to play KDL 2 first is that it may be tough to go back to a smaller-scale game after playing the superior one.

I also felt the same way about Super Star. I don't regard with such high praise as most Kirby fans do. Nice thoughts on KDL3, I'm excited to try it soon!

KDL3, like DL2 and K64, is a little more meticulous and slow with its progression. KSS, RTDL and TD are more like Smash Bros in how they feel, and the progression is more of an action game.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of the slower Kirby games. KDL3 has kind of a nice look to it, but it doesn't feel nearly as gorgeous as, say, Yoshi's Island; while the shading effect is cool-looking, the design of the environments and blobbish, generic enemies feels really bland to me. And while the puzzle element is cool, it often involves happening to have the right power (and animal!) at the right time...and if you don't, too bad! Hope you enjoy playing through the stage again with the right element! This was something that bothered me in K64 as well.

Mop it up is right in that if you only enjoyed Super Star, you probably wouldn't enjoy DL3 that much; it's very much a follow-up to DL2.

I also love the artstyle of Dreamland 3. But I have the Kirby Collection, so I'll pass.

I WANT to buy these N64 games, but I refuse to do it until they put them directly on the Wii U! I want to play wireless multiplayer with perpetual motion machine (aka Pro) controllers!

@nate38

I'm definitely going to wait until February before getting any of these games to see what other rewards will be available. From the sounds of it, there will be a lot more games (and some new physical rewards) available starting next month.

And ending next month Sad to see Club Nintendo go so hopefully it goes out with a bang.

@canonj

Same here. I own all of them except for Excitebike, and I'm not sure I want to spend 200 coins on that. But I do have 4200 coins in reserve, so...hmm.

Now I regret that I ordered the NES Remix shirt. I only have 150 left.

I already have all these on cartridge, though I wouldn't mind having Wario Land II on 3DS. But if these are going to be up until June then I might as well wait and see what else gets offered.

@Mop it up
I'll be waiting as well. Was thinking about Mario Land or Wario Land II since I don't have copies of either, but waiting will win.
