A Welcome Return Indeed

Even though Kirby (and his friends) have been around for quite awhile, I admit I've never taken more than a passing interest in the series: too kiddie (even when I was a kid) and all bright colors and no threat of ever losing.

Enter “Kirby’s Return to Dreamland” (“KRtD”...
