With Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze less than a month away, we wanted to take a quick look at 10 reasons why you should be excited about this new Wii U title.
Definitely picking this up. Loved the first one and this one looks even better. Retro ... please announce a Metroid game though soon ... really miss the Prime series.
I think they're working on it, they had the Metroid Crocomire Easter egg in DKCR, Reggie was wearing a Metroid pin at VGX and there is Samus ship Easter egg in this game.
Dat Cranky Kong tho...
1 and only reason. It's donkey kong running at 60 fps:). If they bring it to 3Ds it better not be as crappy as the other port...donkey kong country cannot be played at 30 fps...and lag.
I didn't have much of an issue with it, for whatever reason the game ran noticeably worse on my original 3DS compared to the XL, i don't know if it's because i haven't updated in awhile or what.
It might have been, but platformers especially ones like DK need proper control response that cannot be provided at 30 fps. 3D land was the only one running 30 fps which didn't feel to affected by it...but that game is no where near as hard as donkey kong country.
i thought u meant Donkey kong in a 3d platformer, something like Bonjo&Kazoi ...oh boy that would b awsome!
I wasn't going to get it, but the newest game play sold me. I still don't feel it's worth $50, but I'm going against my own judgement.
Im going to buy a Wii U just for this game. I have to admit, normally I'm quite jaded in the sense that I can't stand all of these 2d revivals and Nintendo making their franchises take a step backwards (NSMB, Metroid Other M, etc.) instead of in bold new directions, but DKCR surprised me hugely and quickly became my favorite Wii title.
Well you will also have a few other must titles to have. But do yourself a favor and pick up Super Mario 3d world.
Just how many 2d platformers can they spew out? Yawn... This why the Wii U is sinking. Same tired regurgitation. It's like going backward after Mario World.
And you wonder why you flunked 3rd grade ):
Sorry, what was that? could you repea...., oh. sorry.....
I'm with you. Nintendo has some decent variety this year but a new IP is sorely needed. Something a little darker just to mix it up.
Am I the only one hoping to one day get to play as Lanky or Chunky Kong once again. I really miss those Kongs.
Maining Cranky will be the new meta.
I wish you could play as the other kongs in single player. DK is literally the worst kong in the new series. The new Kongs trump him in every way. I don't know why they didn't give DK something special or unique like his coconut gun or use his strength in special circumstances like if a boulder is in the way and only DK can move it. This is my biggest and only gripe in the new series. Other than that, this game looks absolutely amazing. I just hope they don't have you play as only DK in the next one. I like to play as Diddy Kong.
I can't get excited for this game. I already have my platforming needs met with Rayman and SM3DW. If it gets great reviews I'll probably pick it up though.
I'll give you one reason: It's made by Retro Studios.
