I couldn't force my way to watch through that whole video, it's too 90's.

I sold my DK country a few years ago, but I think I have a GBA version of it

Awesome!

Great choice guys. I suggested this game weeks ago. I'm going to speedrun this game and try to break my 101% record in 1 hour 12 minutes.

I love this game. I love the sequals even more. I'm definitely calling next week as this game gets so unfairly shit on nowadays.

It was great in 1994 and its still great now.

Awesome choice this time. I've never played it myself but the range of opinion is so wide that I'm sure there will be some very good calls.

Nah. I go back and forth on DKC. Sometime I love it, sometimes I hate it. Usually I'm right in the middle. So I could never bring myself to spring for the CE version.

The box art still cracks me up for some reason. I have a lot of thoughts on this game, so I'll condense them and save it for a phone call. :)

Eh...I own the cart to this game. It's ok in retrospect, I guess, but I've never been a fan of Donkey Kong as a character or a series. I remember hating most of the levels, not liking Diddy Kong (I still dont), and wishing my parents bought me Kirby Superstar like I asked for instead of this game.

I couldn't force my way to watch through that whole video, it's too 90's.

Do yourself a favor and don't go looking for the Pokemon promotional video.

I'm glad Phil posted up the link to the video, because it jogged my memory, allowing me to go get this from my shelf:

I got two of these somehow, and just always kept them. Thought it would be nice to share.

EDIT: Un-insulted Phil.

Miyamoto hated this game. Years later he apologized and acknowledged that its a good game.

Everyone busted a nut when it came out, but years later its on every overrated list for some reason and it really pisses me off.

I wish this would be the first live call in podcast.

This game and it sequels are great for so many reasons. The control is perfect. The graphics are still fantastic, so what that its short. If you want a longer and more difficult DKC, play 2 and 3. Few people played 2 and even less played 3. I didnt have a PS or Saturn at the time and played them to death. Great Stuff.

Great stuff Tron. I gotta dig out my stuff.

Nintendo hyped this game so much. Rare did such an amazing job on the graphics of this game. Nothing looked like it at the time and I will argue that the trilogy is the best looking 2D platformer ever.

Don't forget the A+ music the game had. Stop shitting on the game without providing some actual criticism.
