Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

DKC: Tropical Freeze has such charming idle animations

Donkey Kong plays Donkey Kong

Idle animations -- or should I say good idle animations -- happen infrequently enough that I'm usually caught off guard when I happen to leave my character waiting around. I shouldn't be surprised to see that Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze excels on this front after Donkey Kong Country Returns, but here we are. This time around, DK plays various 3DS games.

The above video breakdown by GameXplain goes from "Hey, that's neat" to "Jeez, how much time did Retro Studios spend on this?" Someone must have really cared. Be sure to stick around for Diddy's bizarre (and kind of adorable) yawn, and Dixie's air guitar.

I'm starting to get really excited for the approach of the new FE games! I'm going to revisit Awakening. Are any of the DLCs worth it at all? (AKA what's the deal with the Future Past DLC?)

Downloading Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth. It feels a little weird to be installing a game on the Vita that isn't porn, if I'm being perfectly honest.

There's gonna be enough copies of both Fire Emblem: Birthright and Fire Emblem: Conquest that I shouldn't really feel the need to preorder them at Best Buy, right? I want to get both versions (I buy physical only) and I'm worried they won't have enough.

First Electric Playground and Reviews on the Run, now GameTrailers. Some people just want to watch the world burn. If you excuse me, I'm going to go cry and weep in a corner.

GameTrailers just announced on Facebook they're shutting down. It's a damn shame, since I rather liked them, despite not agreeing with a lot of what they've said. Best of luck to everyone who worked there.

That's a really short campaign Destiny has isn't it? Wow lol

Goddamn I'm excited for Street Fighter V. This is gonna be my first Street Fighter ever, and Ryu being in Smash is definitely helping me transition to more traditional fighting games. I'll probably end up playing Chun-Li anyway, though.
