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

- at least DK doesn't lumber around like an idiot and beat the crap out of everything like he does in Jungle Beat, who's characterization is way off for DK. They might have screwed up on the number of characters they included, but the ones they have are represented perfectly. Still, I see where the...

Re: Which "Main 12" Kong is the best?

"Swanky is as Swanky does"

In this case it means he's more of a function then a character. An archetype and nothing more.
There's just not enough there for me to like or, dislike.

I can't even use character association with him like I did with Candy, Wrinkly, and could do with Funky.

Re: Favourite Boss?

Easily Colonel Pluck. Up until I ran into him the tikis, as well as most of the enemies, seemed kind of bland and boring to me.The Colonel got a laugh out of me, and it's his cutscene that explained the tikis motives and helped me except them as villains.
