In 1994, Rare recast a classic Nintendo villain as the titular hero Donkey Kong Country and gave him a unique set of skills and his very own sidekick, Diddy Kong. Created using the latest state-of-the-art 3D technology, the pre-rendered graphics used for the characters and locations made the game stand out from the crowd when in arrived on the SNES; and in some ways, acted as a tech demo for what the SNES could accomplish in the 32-bit era. This week we begin our year-long spotlight on Donkey Kong with a review of the game with special guest, Johnny Pederson. But before we do, we couldn’t help but not talk about the Nintendo Switch, recent rumours and our hopes for E3. All this and more!

Absolver is a heavy hitter and as such, a lot of its punches are wild swings that miss their target. The ones that do connect, however, leave a lasting impression. A fantastic idea executed competently but, unfortunately, not much more than that.
'Batman and Harley Quinn' doesn't hold a candle to the 90s show it's inspired by, but fans could do worse.
Hostiles is an admirably executed work about accessing the damage done to the collective psyche of western America in the late 19th century.
I wasn't simply drawn back by the fanboy nostalgia for one of the titles that helped shape my gaming tastes to this day. No, the decision was primarily taken because remembering what games like this meant to me back during my illness made me consider what it was that I found so appealing about them, and ESO in particular.
