Episode 39 – Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest with Alec Robbins
Get your nanners peeled because we’re finally following up the first episode of this podcast with one of the greatest sequels of all time, Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest. On this episode of Call Me By Your Game Conner is joined by Mariologist, Comic strip auteur, fashion icon, and Mr. Boop himself, Alec Robbins.
Conner and Alec have a ball discussing the state of Nintendo just a week before the announcement of Super Mario 3D All-Stars. Alec also gives us a rundown of his Nintendo fandom and sticks up for both the criminally underrated Wii U and flawed but wonderful Super Mario Sunshine.
The two of them also discuss the trend of video games not focusing on what makes a game fun to play, how DKC2 is an example of two contrasting art styles that make each other pop, and how the developers of this game threw all of their best ideas at the proverbial board in order to make a fantastic and dynamic 2D platformer.
