King of Kong hit theaters -- a handful, at least -- today, so if you're in one of the few selected cities we recommend you sacrifice your other Friday not plans and check it out. Even BioShock can wait, for those few lucky enough to grab an early copy. (Image credit) Check out the highlights for t...

Supporters of game-based movies have had to suffer through a lot in recent months. Dead or Alive, Postal and the DVD release of Game Box 1.0 have all assaulted our senses and our sensibilities since the start of the year. Now, finally, a good game-based movie has come along and, unfortunately, it's ...

Burabura Donkey, or DK: King of Swing as we know it in the states, puts you on a quest to recover 24 stolen medals and prove yourself as the Jungle Hero. Swinging the gorilla from peg to peg is managed with your handheld's L and R buttons, while jumping can be accomplished by hitting the two shoul...

The folks over at NeoGAF are reporting that the latest issue of Ngamer has an interesting chunk of rumor in it. In the latest issue, a reader writes in asking if Donkey Kong 64 could appear on the Virtual Console for the Wii, what with the game requiring the expansion pack and all. Apparently, the f...

Today's dojo update provides us with a look at the Final Smash maneuver for Nintendo mascot Donkey Kong. Upon retrieving the item, Donkey Kong busts out his patented bongos. Upon beating on them with his most massive of hands, he slaps out a tune so deadly that it kills all who hear it. Except for...

These Italian Wii ads are just awesome. Using the Post-it technique of creating pixel art, Nintendo pasted some giant sprites up on walls and signboards. Passersby who thought to pull down the Post-its (the jerks) found Wii ad copy on the back of each pixel, and, hopefully, more Post-its underneat...

The Dojo has updated again, this time providing us with a complete bio of Donkey Kong, along with a short gameplay video. The video, which lasts a too-short 15 seconds, shows off some of the characters' Final Smash maneuvers, as well as some of the stages already revealed. The bio on Donkey Kong i...

Even with a diminished E3, there's no controlling the wave of rumors that hit the Internet every year before the show. Why fight it? From now until E3 hits, we'll be posting one piece of wild speculation every day. Some may be patently ridiculous, and others just might turn out to be true. Even so...

The official Japanese site for Nintendo's Wii has updated again, with more of those experience videos they've made us so accustomed to. This time around, we get to catch an eye full of people playing a game that has, to be honest, failed to really excite us. Screens and video alike have failed to ...

Is the Wii doomed to half-baked waggle games, or will developers harness the awesome power of apples gestures? For a game from Nintendo, Donkey Kong Bongo Blast doesn't give us a lot of hope, at least in video form. Watch the spastic drum-roll gesture to start Donkey Kong racing in addition to other...

In honor of Father's Day, we thought we'd ask a themed question: Who's your favorite father and son/daughter team? Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr., or, uh, hmm. Oh, how about Bowser and the Koopa Kids? Pac-Man and Baby Pac-Man? Pitfall Harry and Harry Jr. from Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure? Man, w...

We're still not clear on whether or not DK Jet will allow players to use their bongo peripherals, but even that might not be enough to save what looks like a half-hearted effort from developer Paon. The former GameCube title's official site has several videos illustrating its new control scheme with...

Fresh screens have been scarce for Nintendo's upcoming GameCube-turned-Wii racer. Not only that, but the change in controls kind of have us a bit worried about the game. Maybe you don't think that way and have sat patiently, awaiting new information or screens to gawk at. Well, no information has co...

Announced just over a year ago at Nintendo's pre-E3 conference, several new screenshots from the swingtastic DK: Jungle Climber have just been released. The game works in the same manner as its GBA predecessor DK: King of Swing: using the L and R buttons you climb up stages by grabbing, swinging, an...

Hey, rumors are fun! We see two possibilities regarding this list of Wii games that "will be coming out" according to WiiYou.com. First: they scooped the entire world and got an exclusive look at a list of unannounced Wii games that nobody has heard anything at all about. Second, they didn't. We're...

DK! Donkey Kong! DK! Donkey Kong is here! Sorry, we can't think about Donkey Kong anymore without the DK Rap blaring in our heads. Much like how Rare permanently left their mark on DK through his character design, the rap has been irrevocably stuck to the character. Having the horrifying song stuck...
