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...

"What's Retro working on? A new Metroid? Zelda Wii U? Something entirely original?" Those were the questions prior to E3. Turns out the secret project was yet another Donkey Kong Country sequel. Don't get me wrong! Returns is friggin' amazi...
