Re: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

I've made sure I'm not entirely spoiled for this game, but I HAVE looked up a few nice interesting videos showing some cool easter eggs and details in Tropical Freeze. I'm sure all you DKC fans will love these!

Re: What would like to see if Retro made a sequel

^ There could be a few reasons why Retro didn't include them. Firstly, an active volcano on DK island means Gorilla Glacier would have been blown to smithereens. As for water levels, they'd probably be too sluggish with the way DKCR controls, and the climate would have changed drastically to more hu...

Re: Best in the series for GBA?

I've only played DKC2 GBA, whilst on the surface people immediately assume they are terrible ports due to the lower sound and picture quality. But the gameplay is pretty much exactly the same as the SNES versions, and being portable doubles the awesomeness.

Re: Show it some love!
