Re: The Random Thoughts Topic

I'm sure TF would've sold a lot more copies if Wii U hardware sales were higher, so I think it would be si...

On that point I agree. The use of Diddy as a power-up conserns me and needs to be retooled. It makes no logical sense for DK to take a hit and have someone else run off, unless your intent is for that character to come off as cowardly.

I agree, think it would be interesting to see them as a tag team in refrence to the Country games. Still vaying for K. Rool first and foremost.
