How Many Donkey Kongs Are There?

For a lot of people, and even Nintendo themselves (at times), the question “how many Donkey Kongs are there?” may seem a bit silly. “Of course there’s only one Donkey Kong!” I hear you saying. Those a little more familiar with the Donkey Kong lore may subscribe to the more common understanding of there being two DKs, […]Read More

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is the first of this year’s two Smash Bros. games. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U comes out today in NA, and next Friday, Nov 28th, in the EU.

Donkey Kong ’94: the Definitive Classic Donkey Kong

1994 was a big year for Donkey Kong. Not only was there the enormously wonderful Donkey Kong Country (which, thank goodness, is finally going to be made available in the eShop) but there was another, often forgotten, addition to the series.
