Oh really? Those DKU japesters! This is why I generally don't use their journalism as a source of information. Haha.

Re: The Music of DKC3 GBA - NEW STUDIO-MASTERED TRACKS FOUND!

Actually, Tim Stamper didn't really leak those. It's another former Rare employee whom would rather have the DKU keep their identity secret, so they jokingly refer to the guy as Tim Stamper himself. He's been leaking a stream of interesting info about the gba development for a while now.

DKCR was never intended to be DKC4, and if a real DKC4 ever did come out, I doubt it could live up to the hype. If you don't like DKCR, imagine how much worse it would've been if they'd named it DKC4.

By the way, I still like DKCR.
