If you haven't been paying close attention it's probably been pretty easy to miss, but I would like todraw your attention to a recent Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA) to release called How To Survive, from Eko Software.

Video: Brothers Mario 2: Kong Country

The GameStation is back with a sequel to its clever Mario Brothers/Grand Theft Auto mash up. This time, there is a new Don, a Don-Key Kong, stepping on Bowser's turf. Who does he call for help? The Brothers Mario of course.

At first I couldn't see Donkey Kong and Mario as enemies going up against Bowser. That was until I realized that, historically speaking, Donkey Kong and Mario have been enemies from Nintendo's beginning. I guess years of watching them pal around in Super Mario Kart, Mario Tennis and Super Smash Bros. skewed my view.

Video: Nintendo trademarks "on like Donkey Kong," Stephen Colbert pokes fun

Now that it is about to release Donkey Kong Country Returns, Nintendo goes out and trademarks a catchphrase that no one says anymore. Just like a corporation to be so far behind the times. Stephen Colbert and his writers took notice though and came up with their own. Not the best skit, but the catchphrase for Kirby is the best.

Video: Lego Donkey Kong

Yeah, it's old, but I thought it was cute seeing someone using an classic toy like Legos to recreate a classic videogame like Donkey Kong.

Donkey Konga: Jungle Beat – Review

I see too much potential in the DK Bongos to brand them a publicity stunt just yet. Hopefully Nintendo does, too.

Donkey Konga: Jungle Beat

Game Description: Donkey Konga is a fun music-based game for a unique kind of gameing experience. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong came across a pair of weird barrels on a deserted beach. They take them to Cranky Kong for an explanation and discover that the barrels are really a legendary musical instrument that plays music when you drum or clap. Now they'll try to become famous musicians and earn fame, fortune and lots of bananas!

Donkey Kong 64

Game Description: K. Rool has ape-napped the Kongs! Now, only Donkey Kong is left to rescue and stop K. Rool’s evil plan. You must rescue the Kongs and take back your famous collection of Golden Bananas from the evil clutches of K. Rool! Play your way through the single player adventure or duke it out in Battle mode against your friends. As you play through Donkey Kong 64 you’ll learn new special moves for each Kong and gain new and devastating weapons.

Donkey Kong 64 – Second Opinion

Donkey Kong 64 – Review

To anyone whos played Banjo-Kazooie, Donkey Kong 64 (DK64) can give you a serious case of déjà vu. First off, the two games look strikingly similar. In some instances, it looks like worlds were plucked right out of Banjo-Kazooie and pasted into DK64. The textures and colors of the landscapes, although a bit more detailed and abundant, seem familiar and barely changed.
