Donkey Kong 64 is actually broken beyond belief. Check out this guy's playthrough.

Since Rare is now a dead company owned by Microsoft, no other developer can bring back the magic of the old Rareware games. Even in Killer Instinct on X1 developed by Double Helix, this magic is completely missing.

Almost every Rareware game got delayed several times in order to polish it close to perfection and to meet Nintendo's very high internal standards. No other developer does put effort into this nowadays at times where most games are released as beta versions full of game breaking bugs.

DK64 was a very good game, using some levels that couldn't make it into Banjo Kazooie. It had really good graphics but a very low draw distance and sometimes too many stupid things to collect in order to keep it fun instead of work when striving for 100% completion.

But if you look at the sales numbers of New Mario Bros U vs 3D World, the few Wii U owners out there clearly prefer 2D games. I personally did not like DKC Returns because the Rare magic was missing and the integration of these stupid motion controls did not feel right and destroyed all the fun for me. You had to shake your Wiimote 10000 times in each level for no reason at all. Also most of of the soundtracks were much worse than the originals. DKC2 is my favorite 2D Jump & Run of all times although I got stuck near the end of the game and was never able to finish it bcause it is the hardest game I ever played in my life. Mario Bros Lost Levels is easy in comparsion.

I didn't like the game much when it came out. Traversing each area 5 times over gets boring after a while. It just didn't live up to the DK Country games for me.

I think that the collect-a-thon platformers have aged terribly. I liked Banjo at the time, but going back now it is not very good.

 If you look at it like that, then literally everything Ninendo is doing right now is bad, because everything they're doing now has been done to death. They've lost their touch of genuinely recreating their series with each gen, and are now just banking on creating things that are cost effective and they know will sell.

What?  How so?  Did Nintendo suddenly make a bunch of collect-a-thon platformers while I wasn't looking?

Did you respond to the wrong post?  This makes no sense in regards to what I said.

 No, you were complaining about collect-a-thon platformers not ageing well. Neither are modern platformers, yet Nintendo keeps pumping them out.

Meh, as much as I liked the game when it first came out, it hasn't aged well because of its repetitive collect-a-thon gameplay, and the level design is bland and uninspiring. Easily the weakest of the major 3D platformers on N64 when compared to Mario and the Banjo games. Even Conker is more enjoyable because, although its short, there's virtually no backtracking, which makes replaying the game all the more fun each time.

Fuck remakes, we need new IPs or New games or else the wiiU will be like the Vita

Vita has and will have more new IPS than Wii u. But yeah, both will sell like crap at the end.

Since when are modern platformers not aging well?  The Wii is home to several of the best platformers ever made, and that is within just the last few years.

I loved DK64!!!!!!! But I am sure DKCTF is also a very excelent game!!



Zelda - Breath of the Wild for Nintendo Switch.... Incredable!!!

I can only hope.



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile
