Dixie is back in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

My gut reaction to Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze -- and I say this is a huge fan of the franchise (I even liked and still like DK64!) -- was that of ever so slight disappointment. Which just goes to show where expectations are at, b...   read
