Donkey Kong Beats Mario, As Far As Co-Op Is Concerned?

Thos of you who are longtime readers might remember my review of New Super Mario Bros. Wii last fall.  To summarize, I felt the multiplayer was chaotic and messy, though fun at times, and it didn't feel very cooperative to me at all.  I still stand by that review, though others obviously feel differently.  Apparently, I'm not alone in my assessment of that title: Kotaku's Stephen Totilo mentions many of the same issues.

E3 2010: Donkey Kong Country Returns With Co-Op!

Some big news is coming out of Nintendo's conference at E3 today.  Amid the news about the new 3DS handheld (which we'll cover shortly) and the latest Zelda game (The Skyward Sword) comes news of a revival of a classic Nintendo co-op series.  Donkey Kong is coming back to the Wii!  In the quite literally titled Donkey Kong Country Returns, Donkey and Diddy will be teaming up for adventure once again.  The gameis being developed by Retro Studios, and is coming "this holiday season".  That's some fantastic news, as the Donkey Kong Country games are well regarded.  The co-op elements were a bit too simplistic in the originals, so perhaps that will be fixed in the new title.  We'll keep you posted with further developments!

Co-Op Classics: Donkey Kong Country

A few years ago, a neighbor offered my wife a Super Nintendo with five games, all for $25, before it went into their garage sale. My wife nabbed it, and I was a happy classic gamer that entire day. One of the games in that lot, Donkey Kong Country, was easily worth that price by itself.
