I really expected 4-Player Co-op in this game. After all, there are 4 playable characters. I don't think that matters too much though.

Eh, I feel like this game benefits most from a two-player experience, even ignoring the partner system. It just seems most fun for 1 or 2 players, so I don't think 4-player was ever on the table. But who knows?

The UGXloggery ... really needs an update.

My prediction of my impression with the game. Is it a good game? Yes. Is it a good Wii U experience? Absolutely not.

What would make it a good Wii U experience?

Not sure on the rules regarding disclosing details of the embargo (silly I know), but you will see reviews in advance of it's release date.

Assume the day before launch. If it's any sooner, you'll be pleasantly surprised, and if it's any later, you'll be too busy playing the game to care. (Obviously nomarkreviewer already implied it would be reviewed before launch, but that's a given, anyways.)

Famitsu gave Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze 9/8/9/9.

35/40. Better than Returns, which only scored 32/40.

I wonder when other gaming sites will post their reviews. It seems like they posted A Link Between Worlds and SMB3DW pretty early.. hopefully we can expect this to come early as well.

Damn it Destinyman, always coming in to post news before me haha.

I read over on Neogaf that the German Gamespot awarded the game 86%. Their two main negatives were "the mine cart levels are too trial and error" and "the pointless Kung Pow move".

I hate seeing stupid negatives like that. Trial and error, really? A lot of things can be considered trial and error. Of course the cart levels are going to be that way or they wouldn't be challenging. The Kung Pow thing (I'm assuming the end of a boss fight) is kind of pointless.. but a negative? I really wonder how much points they knocked off because of these things.

I preordered this game from Newegg for $44.99 and free shipping.. but I'm seriously considering cancelling that and going to pick it up morning of release at Best Buy. Shipping makes the wait that much more intolerable and especially with the weather we've been having recently.. could make it worse. Hmm.. save $5.00 or spend it to have the game earliar.. decisions decisions. >_<

I think they mean that move where the Kongs join up and wipe out all the enemies on the screen, but I don't have an issue with the move personally.

Here's hoping eShop will have a midnight release for this (they had it for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Fire Emblem, so why not this?), then I can immediately purchase it and have the game downloaded and ready by morning.

Reason why I'm not buying DK Country Tropical Freeze, Sakurai's HD Donkey Kong design from Smash Bros Nintendo Direct trailers is more impressive than Retro's final product.

For the best Wii U HD experience, Mad Catz Wii Component Cable in 1080p

I have no idea on how to respond to such reasoning (if serious).
