Re: Where is Tiptup in Nuts & Bolts.

He's not there. The game doesn't take place in the usual locales though, it's the place that LOG made for Banjo and Grunty to compete in. So... Tiptup is back at Spiral Mountain (or where ever he lives) during Nuts & Bolts. But that makes me wonder: how did the other returning characters get to ...

Re: Your favorite level in DKCR?

Since DKCR came out I've subscribed to the theory that Big Ape City exists on DK Island behind or inside the Factory world. It's just not well illustrated in any of the games, but it's there. Donkey Kong Land never said that Big Ape City was on another island, that was just assumed at the DKU becaus...

Re: Your favorite level in DKCR?

I would have left the poll out and just made it a discussion, because like Katzii I can't choose just one, especially since even the different "types" of levels are all so varied themselves. One level that comes to mind is the lava silhouette level with Rambi in it. That was awesome.

Re: What Video Game Systems Do You Own?

I bought a Game Gear today. It's the blue model. It came with 9 games (and 2 SNES controllers) for $28. It's pretty sweet, except one question: When I play it, if I look straight on I can't see anything on screen. I have to tilt the screen to actually see the picture. Is that supposed to happen?

The flying Krock is K. Rool's first ship. In DK64, he has the "King Kruizer II", so that implies that the Flying Krock was the first King Kruizer. Then KoS and JC had the K. Kruizer's 3 and 4. The K. stands for King in both of those games.
