Hello... Do you mind if I join the Kirby Club?
I have absolutely no idea when I started playing Kirby, but I certainly remember beating King DeDeDe on Kirby's Dream Land as my earliest Kirby memory. :-)
I practice on Extra Mode on Kirby's Dream Land (I tried Extra Mode with only one health segement and one life- I got as far as a Blatzy somewhere in the middle of Float Islands!
those things are impossible to dodge, man.)
I've 100% completed Kirby Super Star Ultra (...Twice. I've beaten 'Helper to Hero' with all the helpers in only one of the two, though) and I've beaten Squeak Squad WWAAAYYY too many times.
(that game is way too easy- unless you use the ghost ability to take over a Waddle Doo, and then try to face a mini-boss.
I've tried that 'bout five times, but every time I've ended up losing my Waddle Doo before I beat the mini-boss.
Don't try it at home, kids.)
So, well, yeah! :-) I'm glad to be a part of the Kirby Club.
