I don't enjoy playing it myself, but I can definitely see the appeal of Donkey Kong. It's not just a "museum piece". There's a subtle brilliance to some of the methodic and tactical action especially on the rivet stage. And like I mentioned earlier, seeing the top players push every available point out of the barrel stage is definitely interesting. The constant control of entirely RNG created patterns is just incredibly unique.

The game has its stinkers. The random point amount for smashing blue barrels is just straight up bad, and honestly if you ask me, the elevator stage can go entirely. But there's a reason people are still competing in this game. It has a high skill ceiling, and a lot of interesting variables.

What's your opinion of DK3? Plays more like the Game and Watch Greenhouse than the first two and can be quite mean at times. Constantly spraying DK can be tedious at times and power ups don't respawn right away without dying.

Billy Mitchell's got a defamation lawsuit against Twin Galaxies that appears to be pretty much doomed to fail, given Twin Galaxies' expert witnesses are going to back their position up.

Holy shit, so that's Appollo who took the settlement?

Looks like he wasn't after justice, but rather after a fat paycheck :lol:


Now I hope that Karl Jobst, a speedrunner who's content I enjoy and who is also sued (or could-be sued?), will not sell-out as well

To paraphrase Jagger, he came to get his cock sucked, but will now get his ass fucked. Image

I see Walty Walt is gettin' it too. When duder mentioned additional defendants, I'd hoped he'd say "Not Ron Jeremy" TODDO ROGERS (he of the "human element" Dragster FALSIFICARE).

Been meaning to ask, good Dr. Birruford : please tell me you usually say his name by inverting first letter of both name, resulting in the magnificent ROD TODGER moniker? it has to be

(the ''todger'' slang always kills me :lol: )

Ah yes, Rod Todger aka Dick Dick! :lol: Totally forgot, tbh what I remember most is his stunning resemblance to famous Mario porno actor Mr. Jeremy!

Yeah Todger is classic, see also MEAT & TWO VEG Image (eg "Ron Jeremy should break into Billy Mitchell's house and shove his meat & two veg RAIGHT DAHN 'E MAHF")

You can't imagine the juvenile uproar that guy caused BITD, when my AKI-loving circle of friends first fired that game up. :lol:

Didn't help we'd just heard the intro's sagely words on THE MIGHTY WOOD OF FRIENDSHIP (・`ω´・) It's beautiful, and practically indestructible! :shock:

Ah jeez, surprise nostalgia bomb. Years later, I PWNed QI when the question "what did the DikDik do that the DoDo didn't?" came up. (answer: SURVIVE. you need a good stiff dick to survive Darwinmageddon. shitty bird and his little boipucci never stood a chance :[ )
