Nah, DK shows up in all the new Mario games, even the sports ones. DK's baseball team in Mario Superstar Baseball is great. DK hits BOMBS... and he's a good pitcher too. Bowser's just NASTY in that baseball game. He's the best power hitter-character in the game.

Just FYI -- I was really into Donkey Kong (coin-op) when I was a teenager/early 20s. We're doing an addition to our house this year which will include a nice game room in the basement. I'm seriously considering getting a vintage DK coin-op off eBay for the gameroom. ;-D

Pogo, seriously, my 9-year-old would give you a run for your money in MarioKart Double Dash. He dominates when we race, and he's smashed all the time trial records too.

Not surprised by his dominance, though... it's in the genes. :-D

I'm looking forward to the Wii, using the controller as a sword and a gun. Pretty cool.

I don't care too much for Double Dash since you could really abuse items if you were good by constantly switching drivers and picking up 2 items boxes constantly. Now Mario Kart DS, I find rather superior. I hate calling this thing the Wii in any sort of public area :D

The only Mario Kart game I've ever played was the N64 one, I was unstoppable at it. B-)

Wow, I love Nintendo but that name pretty much sucks. Guess the name really isn't important though...

What are you doing?


Playing with my Wii.


Stupid. Just stupid. I thought GameCube was a dumb name, but Nintendo outdid themselves with this one. :-P
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
