"Good times never seemed so good..."
This is the BlackCarrot here, now promising to the guy who keeps throwing tomatoes at me to never parody Neil Diamond again.
But man, it has been such while since I updated the journal. I wanted to share my thoughts on Wave 2 of Dream Friends for Kirby: Star Allies
without giving vindication to the data miners. But as of today or last night, all 3 characters for Wave 2 have been announced. It took me forever becuase of work and of no word throughout E3 2018. I shall list them off, give my feedback, and comment on all of their reveals. If you don't know, they had silhouettes of clues presented to present these characters, and I've got to say, they are some sly foxes at Nintendo.
Daroach was one of those I had listed as plausible but wouldn't make the cut. It is these moments that I'm glad to proven wrong. I don't quite know of his full array of tricks he'll have, but I know from the boss battles in Squeak Squad he can throw bombs and use an ice beam attack. Who knows what else he has. Maybe he'll send out Squeakers to attack. That would be great. His silhouette is what I and a lot of people like to call "A Jigglypuff seen from above."
Dark Meta Knight
This one came out of left field. I wouldn't have thought Dark Meta Knight could be playable, but here am, proven wrong once again. Let Meta Knight as a combo of Sword and Wing ability, Dark Meta Knight appears to be a combo of Sword and Mirror. It's awesome. His silhouette is him inside some mirror thing. Some think he'll have to be dragged into the mirror for a bit after a few moves, but that sounds complicated to me. I think that's just how he guards.
Adeleine and Ribbon
YES! YES! YES! One of my favorite characters in the Kirby series finally gets her due! And man, Ribbon being her partner to fly around was probably the biggest surprise so far. Honestly, I would have loved just Adeleine and would have loved seeing her hopping in mid-air all my herself. Still, Ribbon's growing on me. I can't wait until the 27th of July to play as her, urm, them? Whatever, I'm just going to refer to Adeleine. In what was the most clever silhouette, it was of a Kirby portrait that Adeleine can paint and send to attack. She also gets a Ghost Knight and some Whomp-like enemy to attack. I'm so glad she gets her own paintings to attack opponents with. I can't wait to see what else she has to offer.
So, after July 27th, we'll probably have to wait four months until Wave 3, and I will talk about them when the time arrives
and not give the data miners any vindication. If that is the case, it'll come out around my birthday, and if my 2nd favorite choice is there, it'll be all the sweeter.
Alright, that's all.
