I don't know if there's a game we've had more requests to cover on the podcast than Diddy Kong Racing. And the reason it took so long was because as a kid, I never played it. I had Mario Kart 64, and damned if I was gonna waste a Christmas or Birthday present on another kart racing game (that I always assumed wasn't as good, anyway).
Well, I've finally played it. And it turns out I was just a dumb kid. This game is absolutely as good as Mario Kart. It might even be better, to be honest. The single player certainly it, at least.
My buddy, and former Hall of Famer Mark McCue gave me a call this week, and we gushed about that time Diddy Kong and a bunch of weird animals went racing to try and defeat an evil pig (by racing him, too). It's way better than it sounds, I promise.
And before we talk Diddy Kong, it's another edition of the 'Remember The Game Infamous Intro'!
This week, I talk about what levels I hate most in games; swimming, ice, or desert. We also get into what we'd like to see in future WWE games, and if it's reasonable to pass on the new GTA remastered trilogy if they don't include the original soundtracks.
PLUS, we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', featuring some of the best run and gun titles ever made - Gunstar Heroes, Contra III: The Alien Wars, and Metal Slug 3.
