Cranky Kong goes bananas in new Donkey Kong trailer


11:30 AM on 12.18.2013



We got lots of new info from today's Nintendo Direct, and amongst all the news was the latest trailer for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. It shows off just what you'd expect with all the crazy platforming featuring the Donkey Kong family. Cranky Kong is one energetic monkey for being so old.

I still remember him telling me about his good old days back on the Super Nintendo version of the game. Remembered when his dead wife would visit you as a ghost in Donkey Kong 64? Creepy.

Also there's a badass looking polar bear boss featured in the new trailer. Neat.

Damn, these 20 Just Cause 3 screenshots are so wonderfully Just Cause

Twenty Just Cause 3 screenshots surfaced today, and they look like absolutely anything you could ever want from a Just Cause game. There are lots of explosions, gliding through the air tethered to various objects, and more than one instance of shooting atop a bus. Subtlety never was Just Cause's strong suit.
