Is Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest the best game we've never covered on the show? I'd certainly listen to that argument, but fortunately, it's a right that's been wronged! My buddy, and the Diddy to my Donkey, Bradley McCue, joins me this week, and we have a nice beefy chat about the game many consider to be the best of the original DKC trilogy.
This episode is worth listening to for the music alone.
And as always, before we talk Dixie Kong's debut, it's another Remember The Game Infamous Intro!
This week, we talk about what consoles should be considered "retro", the games I didn't understand as a kid, "petty" enemies, and why a game's length is directly compared to it's value.
Plus, we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One'. This time, it's the Rare edition, featuring Donkey Kong Country, Banjo-Kazooie, and Diddy Kong Racing!
