Catching Up With the Man Who Made Donkey Kong Country's Brilliant Music

I like these soft news pieces for a change. And that guy looks like he rocked a piano tie for a good decade or more.

I invented the piano key neck tie!

He also did the music for WWF Championship wrestling and Marble Madness.

He just makes really good catchy music that is memorable 15-20 years later.

David Wise is so freakin' good. It's a shame we haven't seen him do more.

Supernintendo Dk's still the best even for today, the music the graphics all of them as they were is better than today abominations of Dk.

I actually really enjoy DK:TF. It has a great look and feel to it. Its an old school side scroller with updated graphics and abilities.

im a hardcore DK fan and i respectfully disagree, the two DK games on wii and wiiu are just incredible, it might miss that vintage RARE feel a little bit but damn the gameplay, level design and atmosphere are top notch

It would be cool to see if Wise would work with Retro for their future games, like Metroid.

WeAreLegion2179d ago

Do you know what you're asking? I love David Wise, but...

REDBEARD2178d ago

A collaborate effort between Wise and Yamamoto would be ideal. I do love the Metroid score.
