Re: First topic in this section in a long time with a long name!

It's either that, or nonexistence. Character designs change over time, boohoo. You think any of the Mario cast look the same as they did when they first came out - heck, even as they did ten years ago? Are they all still not recognizably the same characters as they're being billed as? If so, then th...

Re: Donkey, Diddy, Dixie... except of one all end with "y"?

Or they could have just given her a normal freaking name, one that actually exists and isn't a fragrant misspelling and abuse of the English language, that oh look, still has the y sound to it. Which they did. "Should have", ugh.

The thing that I always found amusing as I was playing New Super Mario Bros. was that it really, really seemed evocative of the DKCs in a couple of respects.

A Diddy-helmed series or even just another game starring him is the most logical option, I'd say, to the point where I'd almost expect it to happen in a few years.
