The crux of the Kirby series is that it simply peaked too early. While it wasn’t the first game in Nintendo and HAL’s popular series, Kirby’s Adventure was the first a lot of people played, and it is coming up on being 20 years old. After all this time, it still plays like the same timeless masterpiece that, quite frankly, makes every game that came after come up short by comparison.

Trials Fusion is a great game held back at every turn by its own aesthetics and the technology that powers it. The deep game we know and love is there, but to find it requires disabling options and overlooking some glaring issues.

Trials Fusion is set in the future. We know this because the intentionally cheesy opening theme song’s lyrics are “Welcome to the Future! Man, Machine, The Future!” Via the equally cheesy announcers that accompany each track, you find out throughout the game that the riders are clones, that the world is full of mutant animals, and that the environment is going crazy.

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5 during the 2014 Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona earlier this year, and just a few months later it’s available all around the globe, and from major carriers in the United States for $199 with a new two-year contract.

The device offers brand new hardware components, including a faster processor, and is also equipped with unique parts like a heart rate sensor. Last year’s Galaxy S4 was extremely popular, and Samsung sold millions of units within months of its release.

We all do it. Chances are you’re doing it right now, reading this on a park bench or at a bus stop. You do it at restaurants, in the car, at the office. You’ve actually been doing it your whole life without really noticing. The older you get, the more you probably do it. We even spend hard-earned money to do it more. The onslaught of indolent-enabling technology certainly doesn’t help. Tablets, smartphones, and computers almost encourage this type of behavior; the more mobile and powerful our favorite technology becomes, the easier it is to do: Sitting.
