Ape puns coagulate in this Donkey Kong Country episode, featuring the dudes at The Pixel Meditations podcast! We discuss how to help games be accepted as an art form, showing people that there’s something to learn from video games, DKC’s quality of physics and weight, its sense of rhythm, the immediacy of its two player co-op, the variations between Donkey and Diddy, its place as the first title in the SNES trilogy, those dreaded mine cart levels, the Cranky Kong Run, and that great, great David Wise music, as well as which game most people prefer out of the original trio.
Want more MAGE CAST more often? Help us reach our next goal on Patreon and we’ll start releasing episodes on a weekly basis rather than every other week! If you’re a fan, considering supporting with even just a monthly pledge of $1. Build the future! Every bit of monthly support takes us closer to $150 a month for weekly episodes.

Thanks for listening,
