"We constantly have to revisit 'Why would Donkey Kong do this?' or 'Why would this environment be like this?' And then we start thinking: 'We're making a game about a gorilla wearing a tie.'"
-Michael Kelbaugh of Retro Studios on Donkey Kong Country Returns
"I have to say it's kinda scary how much you know about this game."
-Nicolau Chaud creator of Marvel Brothel
Long story short I meant to get this done around June and while I was in the hospital when my kid was born...and what do you know those things take a lot of time/energy. Even worse...I kept getting stuck on how to make 3 minutes of talk about the new Zelda picture look interesting and then 10 minutes of footage about Scribblenauts look good using mostly stuff that was available around E3. That laziness killed about two-four months of willingness to work on it.
So finally I took a sick day and finished this video after.......4+ months. It might seem old to most of Destructoid, but I haven't played a single game in this video so it still has that fresh "do want feel" to me. Plus I figured it could help hype the holiday season for everyone.
I also finished three games this weekend. Braid, Mass Effect, and Band of Bugs. While it might not be that big of an accomplishment for some, I've been buying more games than I can play. This gave me some comfort that I'm not buying these things just to sit on my shelf (or on my harddrive). Too bad I have to play through Mass Effect 3 times to truly get everything in the game.
