Buy Kirby's Epic Yarn for just £6.85 from Argos

Kirby's Epic Yarn is basically a hug and smile in game form. It's so gloriously charming that it would have turned Scrooge into a grinning loon in seconds, and it's super cheap right now at Argos.

Here's the thing, though. Argos aren't doing home delivery on this one, so you'll need to check your local store to see if they have stock. But be quick, it's a bit of a steal, and copies will go fast as it's the perfect stocking filler this Christmas.

The Kirby tankbot is also one of the best video game tanks of all time. Great spot by reutunes at HUKD!

Top Ten Tuesdays | Awesome Videogame TANKS!

Tanks are awesome. We've been drooling all over tracked war machines this week, thanks mainly to a soujurn down to Tankfest 2012 and an interview with World Of Tanks CEO Victor Kislyi. We've done tank PWNcasts. Tank daily bites. Tank updates. So what better way to finish our love affair with rolling treads and massive guns than a hostile takeover of our weekly Top Ten list?

So, here it is: our top ten favourite tanks taken from throughout videogame history. Whether they have the biggest guns, the thickest armour or the fondest memories, these epic gargantuan killing machines have earned a place in our hearts.

For fairness' sake, Mechs (and Wanzers) have been disqualified from the list. Besides, they have a Top Ten of their very own...

Top Ten Tuesdays | Awesome Videogame TANKS!

Honourable Mentions: M1A2 Abrams [Battlefield: Bad Company 2], Prism Tank [Red Alert 2], Devil's Tongue [Tiberian Sun], Rhino [Grand Theft Auto]

Kirby's Epic Yarn

Kirby's Epic Yarn may well have passed you by, and if that's the case then you might want to get yourself over to Gameplay so you can pick up a copy for £19.99, which'll save you £5 on the next best offers coming in from Game, Amazon, and Gamestation. Now I may have misled you with the picture above, because Kirby can't swallow his enemies in this game, but he can attack them using his new abilities, one of which is to turn them into balls of yarn that can then be thrown. It's good, light hearted fun, as well as being one of the best Kirby games to grace our screens.

If you have yet to sample Kirby’s overwhelmingly adorable adventure - and missed ShopTo's recent deal - ASDA have lowered their prices to save you a couple of quid (but be aware that other sites will doubtlessly attempt to price-match before too long). Kirby’s Epic Yarn is an imaginative, beautiful and utterly charming adventure that builds on its platforming roots while providing new (and frequently surprising) new gameplay opportunities. Cooperative multiplayer is also a blast, and well worth roping in a friend or relative to enjoy.

Game has brought down the price of Kirby’s latest adventure, and Gameplay have rushed in with a price match, allowing you a choice from where to get this deal. With the title hitting the sub-£20 area for the first time, it’s a fiver cheaper than the next cheapest retailer Amazon, which makes it a pretty good deal. As for the game, it’s arguably the best Kirby outing to date. It’s the silly yet charming plot you’d come to expect from a Kirby game that will no doubt enthral children of all age (although if you don’t want to admit it that’s fine with us.) Thanks to sits69 @ HUKD!

Everyone’s favourite pink blob is back in what is arguably the best Kirby game to date, and Tesco are currently providing the cheapest price for the title. After being trapped in the Patch Land in an evil wizard’s sock, it’s up to Kirby to save the day and restore the status quo. Unable to swallow his enemies, he’ll have to settle for swinging, transforming, and generally acting adorable on his way to victory. It’s the silly yet charming plot you’d come to expect from a Kirby game that will no doubt enthral children of all age (although if you don't want to admit it that's fine with us.) Thanks to flamingcarrot @ HUKD!

Please Note: The 'TDX-MAT4' voucher code for Tesco Direct unfortunately no longer works, but as it's still the cheapest deal by a few points it's still worth considering.

Video Game New Releases: February 21st - 27th 2011

Get ready, dick-tits; it's FPS heaven this week. PS3 owners yearning to take on the Helghast for a third time will get their wish and People Can Fly are preparing to put the fun back into shooters with the knowingly OTT Bulletstorm. Add in a return for THQ's delightfully bouncy hero - De Blob - the release Jane Jensen's Gray Matter and, fingers crossed, a European release for Kirby's Epic Yarn (it's about time dammit!), and this week is shaping up to be a kickass week indeed!

NB. Much like Barney Stinson, release dates have been known to be a little flighty when it comes to commitment and there have been occasional times when they've fled from a previously set date. Please be aware they might be subject to change.

There were cries of joy that erupted worldwide when Ninty announced Kirby would finally be getting his solo debut on the Wii, and it’s not long before it finally reaches our shores. After being trapped in the Patch Land in and evil wizard’s sock, it’s up to Kirby to save the day and restore the status quo. Unable to swallow his enemies, he’ll have to settle for swinging, transforming, and generally acting adorable on his way to victory. It’s the silly yet charming plot you’d come to expect from a Kirby game that will no doubt enthral children of all ages when it releases next month.

It's worth noting that although it is the largest dedicated gaming event to grace this country, much of the material on offer at Eurogamer has either been covered at other foreign festivals of virtual fun or, in the case of several titles including FIFA 11 and Vanquish, is showcasing games and demos already available to the public.

We didn't want you to miss out on any coverage, though; and so, with that in mind, here's a little refresher post stuffed with links to titles available at Earl's Court this weekend that we've previously covered. Hit the images for the respective links:

RAGE

Tim Willits and Jason Kim took to the stage at Eurogamer, but their presentation was virtually identical to the one we saw in Germany back in August. You can find Jon's coverage of that here, but stay tuned for an interview with the two creative minds behind the apocalyptic shooter after today.

Brink

brink_airport

With queues for the English language multiplayer snaking around all of the way into the Careers Fair, the innovative FPS from Splash Damage has been one of the most popular games of the Expo. We already managed to get hands-on with it a few months back, but stay tuned for our interview with head honcho Paul Wedgewood.

Kirby's_Epic_Yarn_Title

As per usual, Kirby's game was the one that everyone kind of shrugged at before E3...before people got a chance to play it that is. Although I couldn't get out to E3 this year, I did manage to get a chance to get to grips with a little bit of the game on Tuesday. Kirby's had a bit of a rough deal over the years, never quite getting the attention he's perhaps deserved, but that's all about to change. You see, aside from one other game - ironically one that came not from Nintendo's stable but EA's (Calm down. All in good time! - Ed.) - this was the title that impressed me most at the Nintendo showcase on Tuesday. It's as if Nintendo have distilled the very essence of what a Nintendo game should be - fun, inventive and adorable - and given the goods to the inflatable marshmallow.

Kirbys-Epic-Yarn-Photos

Now I'm willing to bet that there'll be some of you wondering how the hell this can be, especially if you read my Donkey Kong Country Returns preview yesterday questioning the Big N's insistence on revisiting all of their old characters in two dimensions. But the point was never so much about dimensions but rather what has come before. We haven't seen Kirby on a home console in six/seven years and back then he was busy racing people  on floating stars.

Kirby's returning, then, to his platforming roots in an immaculately presented 2D extravaganza that is so gosh darn cute that at times while playing this game I was overcome with the urge to hug the screen. Kirby's Epic Yarn managed to turn a 6ft 3, twentysomething male who likes gory slashers and pwning n00bs just as much as the next guy into a simpering, giggling idiot.
