I tried VERY hard not to kill the unarmed Waddle-Dees in Epic Yarn, especially the two sleeping under that tree.

Kirby was one of the biggest mainstays of my gaming childhood, I used to wanna be Kirby, and now I realize, that all my life, I've wanted to be a cannibalistic serial killer

I support this holiday.

Kirby Super Star is one of the best platformers ever made. To the point that I STILL go back and play it constantly, 15 years after it's release.

I tried to get the game today, apparently nobody delivered it to any of the local retailers :(

Also, Kirby Super Star=greatest videogame ever ever.

Today is a national holiday and if you're not paying tribute to the pink one, you've got some explaining to do.
Amazon hasn't even shipped my copy yet. Believe me, I'd love to be celebrating National Kirby Day. I fucking love me some Kirby.

Anyway Jim, I don't know whether to thank God for you because you made this awesome video telling people to play Kirby, or to hate you for getting to play it already (nobody I know was able to get a copy today either).

...I think both. I can do both, right? Multitasking.

I used to come here for Zero Punctuation and, when I occasionally ran out of things to do on this series of tubes called the Interwebz, return to watch the other videos, from which I extracted a limited amount of pleasure.

This is no longer so! Since discovering the Jimquisition a few days ago, I am a changed Escapist. Now I come for Zero Punctuation AND Jimquisiion, returning to watch the other videos when I run out of other shit to do on the Interwebz.

I fucking love your videos Jim. And your comedic timing is fantastic.

It's just one more thing that I now eagerly anticipate every week :)

Thanks Jim! I would thank god for you, but I don't believe in god. I guess I can only thank you.

I never thought of that ant comparison before. So many horrible deeds in such a cute little package.

Jim eating Kirby also got kind of meta. How does the consumer feel as he is being consumed?

Just another example why you should be careful what you let your children play. This are real deal.

Jim's Jason Voorhees/Kirby comparison totally sounds like something that could fit in this video:

National Kirby Day

Are you at work? Well tell your bosses that they have no right to keep you? Today is a national holiday and if you're not paying tribute to the pink one, you've got some explaining to do. National Kirby Day is a day to be observed by everybody, and the Jimquisition will find you if you're not celebrating.

Watch Video
Jim, your video all but forced me to make this image. :)

Kirby Super Star can't possibly be the best platformer ever. because Kirby Super Star Ultra exists, and is all that and *MORE*.

I know it has nothing to do with the actual thread but man... There is being crazy and there is being ignorant. That guy succeeds in being a crazy ignorant liar. I mean, sure, he spins a funny story... But am I the only person who thinks that if I had been stabbed I would want to go to hospital and not to a church for coffee?

*sigh*

OT: I lolled. But I have never played a Kirby game. Just aint my thing, I am a strategy gamer.

Uh, I'm going to the lone voice of dissent and say the second half of that vid was not for me. I respect the attemptted humour but for me it fell a bit flat.

I did like the point where he compared himself to kirby though. That was funny.

Kind of glad I'm not the only one to realize just what kind of horrible monster Kirby is, though technically There Will Be Brawl also had this.
I agree about that. He truly is a monsterous villain. I still like saying that Kirby is the destroyer of worlds, for he consumes eveything in his path.

Haha! Another great episode. But I think a lot of cute child-friendly games can be nightmarish if you look at them from a different perspective. Pokemon is an obvious one. Capturing wild animals against their will and forcing them to fight, constantly knocking each other out, criminal syndicates, etc. etc.

Jim is definitely not the only person who noticed Kirby's violent tendencies. I'm surprised he didn't use any clips from "There will be Brawl" Damn hannibal kirby was frightening.

Also

Thank you posting this video, I tried to find it, but I couldn't.

I saw this video a few months ago, and I have to say, It's frightenly accurate about kirby.

HE WILL CONSUME US ALL!!!
