    E041 - Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

    E041 - Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

     For our love of the original Donkey Kong County, we couldn't wait to review Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. Many consider this to the be best in the series because it took everything from the first installment and made it better: Two fast main characters. A buddy system. More difficult levels. Completing bonus areas matter. Gameplay as the animal characters instead of riding them. Temporary invincibility. The original DKC is still the top notch for us as far as the series goes but this does make a good case for being the superior game. Check out our YouTube for a playthrough of this and all of our games and let us know what you think in the comments. Join us next week for part one of our review of Sonic 3 (and Knuckles) for the Sega Genesis.

Good times about good memories

This is a great podcast covering retro gaming delivered in a conversational style. Games are considered not just by how well they hold up to sands of time but by the memories they created.
