Re: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

With that last bit I meant, I think I have pretty good reasons for not liking Retro's games, I don't bow down and worship them whenever they slap "Donkey Kong Country" on the cover of something. (Not saying that's what you guys do, just an example.) And yeah, I guess the video game instruc...

Re: The Random Thoughts Topic

Yeah, the GBA version of Donkey Kong Country 3 is BITCHIN'. Probably my favorite of the ports. And Pacifica is awesome. My 105% in-game time is either 2:32 or 2:33, I don't have my cartridge on hand at the moment. But yeah, good game. Great soundtrack too.

Nintendo hasn't blessed anyone with anything in a long, long time, let alone the modern Donkey Kong mythos. It's Rare you should be thanking. The fans don't owe Nintendo crap, and have the right to complain about whatever they want.
