Kirby's Epic Yarn, DJ Hero 2, and Power Gig

Oct 12, 2010

Keep up-to-date with all the latest video game releases! Kidzworld has all the latest games to keep watch for. This week, we preview Kirby's Epic Yarn, DJ Hero 2, and Power Gig!

Kirby's Epic Yarn

It's been a while since we've seen Kirby in his own platformer, but Kirby's Epic Yarn is finally here this week, and the developers have stitched in some interesting new gameplay tweaks. Dream Land is under attack by Yin-Yarn, a new baddie who brings Kirby to a new dimension made of nothing but sewing materials (giving the game its awesome look). Though Kirby's in an unfamiliar environment, he quickly finds out how to transform his yarn shape into any of many forms, including a car, rocket, or dolphin, during the game, using new gameplay mechanics. The rest of the time, Kirby keeps up his typical floating platforming action along with a new whip of sorts to take down enemies.


DJ Hero 2

DJ Hero gave gamers a special opportunity to hear mixes of two songs put together that were really creative and interesting, sometimes even better than the individual songs themselves. This time around, in DJ Hero 2, the mixes are sometimes combined into Megamixes, six songs put together two at a time to make a really unique DJ set. New song sections also let you freestyle more, uh, freely, so you can choose how to crossfade and scratch rather than just following the course.

Power Gig

Power Gig: Rise of the SixString is a new Guitar Hero/Rock Band-style rhythm game with a focus on more realistic guitar playing and quieter motion-sensor drums. The game can either be played normal Guitar Hero-style with five colored frets or you can up the difficulty by having to play specific strings for each note on the special bundled six-string guitar that's almost like a real guitar. The game's drums sit flat on the floor and sense your drumming motions over it, keeping your real-world drumming quiet while you jam in-game.

Athena would be the one to bring the young boy into real life as a gift to her daughter. His eyes are dark, dark grey that often are filled with thunder and lightning. His hair is dirty blonde, with a few dyed purple streaks. He often is attacked by mystical monsters, but his true passion is Duel Monsters, his advanced and logical approach earning him many a win. He prefers to have a plethora of options that allow him to always keep his opponent on their toes. He prefers to journey along side his father to tournaments, but he spends a few months each year at Camp Half-Blood to learn more about his grandmother and her family.

Ooh, this would be a girl who kind of has some human traits but she's mostly gem. Stevidot's outfit would be a star tank top and denim shorts. The hair would be brown with green tips and Stevidot would be way more flexible. She would be pretty kind but has a flair for amazing comebacks. Of course. She would have the ability to summon a Metal Spiked Shield to use for both attacks by impaling and defense because it's a shield. Finally, she'd be amazing at technology, gem history, and Earth traditions. Yami from Yu-gi-oh and Annabeth from Percy Jackson ​(Yamibeth)
