Endlessbacklog's Brian and Gagan play some DK: Tropical Freeze and share their lasting thoughts on the game.
Never do a DKC game again, Retro. You must make AAA games for Nintendo consoles, not platformers.
Oh, please. Tropical Freeze is one of the finest sidescrolling platformers ever made, and it actually has pretty damn good production values. Retro made three damn Metroid Prime games in a row, and that was great. They WANTED to make a second DK game... and people like yourself loses their mind over that? You are ridiculous. Did you even play Tropical Freeze, man, or did you refuse to give it a chance because it wasn't Metroid? Also, a platformer can be an AAA game. Mario 3D World, Tropical Freeze and Little Big Planet are all AAA stuff. Stop being silly.
I love DKC:TF but the Wii U already had a ton of platformers. New Super Mario bros U, Super Luigi, Mario 3D World, Rayman Legends, Sonic Lost World, etc etc. A new Metroid would have been a better choice for the Wii U diversity of games. DKC:TF should have been their second project on Wii U. Hopefully they are working on a new Metroid or new action oriented IP atm.
"Tropical Freeze is one of the finest sidescrolling platformers ever made" That sounds good, with that talent they could make one of the best AAA games ever released. I mean, they used very advanced 3D technology in a sidescroller. Ridiculous. Retro it's so much wasted potential right now. "Did you even play Tropical Freeze, man, or did you refuse to give it a chance because it wasn't Metroid?" I rented it. Not going to pay for a product that I don't want. It was ok with the Wii game... but almost three years of waiting since then for another 2D platformer? Just no. And also I don't want a Metroid by them necessarily, just something that can demonstrate Retro's potential. I wanna see more of that Donkey's fur. A 2D game will never be able to showcase that in big scales. "Also, a platformer can be an AAA game. Mario 3D World, Tropical Freeze and Little Big Planet are all AAA stuff. Stop being silly." Nintendo games are not AAA.
its okay if the game was too challenging for you .. not everyone rents a hardcore game, and beats it on time. if you want "AAA", go buy The Last of Us. Ungrateful Casuals.
I HATE bannanas, but LOVE this game. One of the greatest crafted platformers ive ever played.
