I think the whole package is pretty dang fantastic. Why do I feel like yet another game I really love will get raked across the coals in a NL review? hehe

Well, it looks like I'm reviewing this one after all, due to unforeseen circumstances. Of course I already spoiled the surprise by saying I like it...I'll try to get this review done soon. God knows I've put enough time in it!

I will play this when I get Paper Mario Sticker Star. Paper Mario Sticker Star might just be the 3DS game of the year, or even the best 3DS game overall. Who knows though? It hasn't even come out yet!

Games I'm playing currently: Legend of Zelda: A Link Betweeen Worlds, Tearaway
Games I'm excited for: Super Mario 3D World, Super Smash Bros. 4, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8

Tell them to stop playing the easy and small ones. If they're really blowing through the Giant crossword section, I'll fly out to each and every one of them and shake their hands.

Actually, it's the GIANT crossword puzzles (Expert) that they think are tiny. Since I can't do a medium one even, that's probably not true.

BTW, DK on NES is Japan's next VC game.

As you play through the 2 screens of available "giant" crossword puzzles, you unlock more pages as you go. If they think those are easy, then they would think any word search was easy, since they are just as hard/easy as any others. Btw, why are we talking about Crosswords+ so much in this Donkey Kong thread? lol Philip, I wish u were reviewing it!

Just about to grab my copy on the E-Shop. I gave in and went with Art Academy, since I wanted to try and practice some art. I'll be posting my score when I can.

@Nintendo_of_America: I have my 3DS set to Mexico, where I cannot join Club Nintendo.

Y U TEASE ME SENDING A NOTIFICATION ABOUT THIS?

Seriously, I just got a notification about this right now. It even included the dreaded "Only for people in Canada/The United States".
I don't even receive any new swapnote stationary from them, one would think that they could filter notifications by country too.

I got 44000 on my first try (without save states of course...that would be cheating), not that its bad but it only got one extra level then the normal nes game?, still fun though.

Does the menu on the 3DS show up as a normal NES game or does it show up like a 3DSware but without the 3D?

Blame the dangerous conditions in Mexico for why this game can't be put there. All of those dangerous attacks.

Regardless, hopefully around christmas I can get C+ to get DK. can't wait!

Ummm... yeah, I don't think that is really the case. Most likely a huge over site by NOA again. Hopefully that gets Rectified in the future for you @Morphtroid.

As for first impressions, this is pretty much what I expected it to be, Donkey Kong on NES with an extra level and an extra climbing animation added between levels for good measure. It's not much of an upgrade from the original NES game, but it's as close as you can get to the original arcade machine... unless they decide to put it on VC Arcade at some point.

As for my current high score, it's 43,200.... Yeah, long ways to go for this one.

Edit: Im abit surprised that it came out today when it said it was coming out 3-4 weeks which would of been near the end of october.

Luigi doesn't exist in DK. It's just Mario and... Mario.

@TDH LIAR! Who is this Mario you speak of? All I know of is Jumpman, hero of Pauline, scaler of tall buildings and slayer of gorillas!

I just got my Donkey Kong Original Edition download code today! playing it now! Loving it. Reminds me of playing this in the late 80's in my dad's hair salon as a little kid. Btw, why is this in the '3ds eshop' forum and not in the 3ds virtual console forum? I guess it could go either way..?
