1. That's where you have to stop trying to take the game seriously and look at it for what it is, a game. I prefer my games to be unrealistic because it allows me to experience things that don't make sense and would never happen in reality. In this case, it's an old hunchbacked ape swinging on vines to take back his home from an army of animal vikings.

2. I honestly don't know what Cranky Kong's special ability would be, but obviously if this is real he'll have some use. Maybe he'll act like Squawks did in DKCR and find hidden items for you or something.

I understand that it's just a game, but people still want their games to have some sort of realism. For example, people aren't happy if the gravity is too much or too little, or if small, weak looking enemies take a lot of hits to kill. Even though it is a fantasy world, people do have some realistic expectations. And you guys can make fun of me all you want for saying that having Cranky running, jumping, bouncing and blasting through levels is ridiculous in a fantasy game, but that's how I feel and you guys making fun of me for it isn't going to change my opinion.

I'm not trying to make fun of you, I just think it's somewhat of a nitpick to complain about it. Nevertheless, this hasn't even been confirmed yet, so maybe Cranky won't even be playable.

@CapnPancakes No, you haven't been making fun and I respect that.

@DarkwingLz Did you ignore my examples? I'm not saying people don't want want intelligent apes and monkeys in their fantasy games, but the mere physics still have to make some sort of logical sense, and that logical sense of how physics should work is based on real life. People want stories in their games that explain why the character's have motivation for doing what they're doing. DK and friends want their island back, or their bananas. That's a realistic feeling, wanting something back which was taken from them. If you disagree with me about Cranky, then that's fine, but it seems a bit absurd to deny the fact that people at least want some realism in their games.

@DudeSean - For the record, I'm not making fun of you either for your reasoning, because that would make me the kind of person I somewhat despise. I must say though, that asking for realism in a game universe like this... does seem a bit odd.

Maybe this is just a case of judging a book by its cover, but like @CapnPancakes said; Cranky being playable hasn't been officially revealed. His appearance on the box art doesn't necessarily mean playable but does highlight his importance in the game. For all we know, the 4th character may still be a secret with Cranky being on the cover acting as a "scapegoat".

@DreamyViridi Nope. You weren't making fun, either. I feel like you guys aren't understanding what I meant when I said people want realism in games. I'm not saying people want games to be 100% realistic. I understand that most gamers don't want that, and gamers that do want that are people that play war games or simulation games. Well, I've already explained what I mean about realism in games enough times that if you guys don't get it or don't agree, then so be it.

I've never said that Cranky is confirmed to be playable, I was simply stated my reaction to the possibility of Cranky being a playable character. Whether he is or is not is irrelevant, as my comments were directed towards the possibility of him being a playable character.

Can't we just pretend Cranky is like Yoda and very old and rail but can jump around like a ninja when he needs too :P

We'll just have to wait and see if this is even legit first before making too many assumptions. I'm sure we'll get a trailer similar to the Dixie one a month or two ago whenever they are ready to officially announce the fourth playable character. That cover does look legit, but that doesn't mean it is. Heck, we had two websites list Luigi's Mansion for Wii U not too long ago, and that apparently wasn't too legit. I'm ready to see a confirmation on the fourth playable character for sure, and maybe that will happen soon.

So, I wonder, if there are four playable characters, does that mean four players will be able to play simultaneously? Or is it still only a two player game? And, I know I've said this before, but I really, really hope that we'll be able to choose who to play as, especially in one player mode.

I'm fairly certain it's still a 2-player game. They've said that you'll need to have certain characters to get certain secrets in some levels, so having four players would probably defeat the purpose of that.

I'm almost positive I remember them saying DK has to be the one in single player and one of the two in two player. I could be wrong, but I thought it was confirmed earlier. Maybe the delay allowed them to alter that. I'll try to research it and make sure I'm not crazy.

I don't see how having four players would defeat the purpose of that. It would just mean that if you have four players then you would be able to find all the secrets in one playthrough, whereas with only 1 or 2 players then you might have to replay the level to find everything.

If that's true, then I am very disappointed. Almost to the point to where I don't even want to buy the game, but I know it's not like my lack of a purchase is going to put much of a dent in sales (then again, as low as the Wii U numbers are, maybe it would). What's the point of even having any characters others than DK if you can't play as them in one player mode? They do have different attributes, but if you're only playing as DK then you're only going to get one part of those different attributes. Rare was able to pull it off in the SNES days. Why is it impossible for Retro Studios to do it?

Well I guess ruin isn't the right word. What I was trying to say is that if you already have 4 characters, it would make those bonuses really easy and simple to get. You wouldn't have to strategically plan which partner you brought along to access it.

As far as only being able to play as DK, I'm totally fine with it. They did a fine job with it in Returns. Did DK and Diddy play differently in the original Donkey Kong Country? Barely, and it's nothing that will stop me personally from buying the game.

Let me put it this way, if you were given a choice to be able to play as Diddy or Dixie in 1-player mode or not be able to, which would you choose?

I see where people are coming from, it just doesn't bother me. Donkey Kong Country Returns is not only my favorite game in the series, but one of my favorite games of all time. Not being able to play as one of the other Kongs in singleplayer wasn't a huge deal to me since I enjoyed the game so much overall. I know many other people don't share my sentiments though.

^I don't think that's a very 'bold' thing to say, it just looks like a better game than Returns in every way. I'd be more surprised if it wasn't better than the last game.

I understand that it doesn't bother you and that's it's not a big deal. But, you didn't answer the question.
