Re: Why I believe Diddy Kong Racing was better than Mario 64

I know this doesn't contribute much to why DKR is better than MK64, It does demonstrate how much I enjoy the game though! this is my remix of Treasure Caves/Pirate Lagoon, took me about 6 hours from start to finish on a Saturday night :) Enjoy https://soundcloud.com/charlton-hawkins/dkr-treasure-cav...

Re: Yooka-Laylee: Everything We Know (So Far)

Now it means we can do anything, we’re not limited by having to have someone else sign off on it. If we want a pink unicorn riding section in the game, we’ll have one (laughs), :shock: Yeah i think i want this! When I read it... all I could think of was this for some reason :) http://i.imgur.com/vP...

Re: I never realised Kazooie was in Diddy Kong Racing!!

As was mentioned earlier in the topic, they explicitly mention in the manual that this was before Banjo partnered up with Kazooie, so it really wouldn't make much sense for them to include that as an easter egg. Now thats what doesnt make sense, diddy kong racing came out november 1997, yet they go...

Re: Why I believe Diddy Kong Racing was better than Mario 64

And this is why some of the best "Save Our Ass" tactics have ended up with really good products in the end! It is always the games/movies/tv shows that you least expect to be popular that really surprise everyone :)

Re: I never realised Kazooie was in Diddy Kong Racing!!

I wish I had the oportunity to ask the team themselves if it is actually Kazooie's voice, DKR came out in 97 and BK in 98... I think they would have been working on Banjo-Kazooie well into them working on DKR... So it is definitely possible that they could have put this small little easter egg in th...

Re: Fan Art!

I guess they just picked the most popular characters and went with them, Conker and Banjo got lucky... I would love to see Crunch, Bumper, Timber, Pipsy, Tiptup, Drumstick and even T.T! in more games and see more character development there, but its all up to Rare sooooo.... yeahhhhh...

Re: Yooka Laylee Story Context

Some awesome ideas there! When I heard about the 'Storybook' Idea the only thing I could think of was Yoshi Story on the N64... I remember loving that popup book look that it had (it was the only part of the game that was 3D haha) I also used to get really emotional and teary at the end credits when...

Re: Fan Art!

Luigi's Art is how I would like to imagine Disney would do Fluent 2D Cell Animation today... Too bad they don't... :(

It would be amazing to see a little 2 or 3 second clip of Luigi's Art actually animated! :D

Re: I never realised Kazooie was in Diddy Kong Racing!!

I recorded myself playing as Banjo in the Hub world with music turned off, I crashed into a wall repeatedly to hear all the Banjo sounds and then also the infamous muffled 'aaayyyyeeee'...

Re: I never realised Kazooie was in Diddy Kong Racing!!

The sound isn't coming from Diddy Kong it is coming from Banjo, you hear the same sound even when your in the hub world and you crash into a wall as Banjo, all of banjo's sounds sound similar except for this one which is completely different

Re: I never realised Kazooie was in Diddy Kong Racing!!



Go to 5:12 and listen when Diddy overtakes Banjo, usually you hear Banjo's 'Crash' sound... but instead you hear a 'aaayyyeee!'

I never realised Kazooie was in Diddy Kong Racing!!

Re: Why I believe Diddy Kong Racing was better than Mario 64

THIS/\/\/\/\/\/\/\//\/\/\ 100% Agree. We should be discussing the games variety in terms of combinations of what can be done instead of just listing 'what it has'... I for one completely forgot you could have multiplayer races in different vehicles ON THE SAME TRACK! (Gee it has been a while since I...

Re: Music celebration thread!!!

I guess I will be the first to post DKR music! These are some of my favourites... FUN FACTS (about my experience with the game) 1. I would never want to play as anyone other than Pipsy because everyone elses handling was terrible (the karts would fish tale out a bit when you turned which I hated, Pi...

Re: virtual reality stretch goals

Also one last thing Bearbuddy, you talk about kids playing COD and GTA5 and kids killing there parents because they took their Xbox away... and then when VR comes along it will make everything worse because they will believe that it is more real... and in a way you are right, but the problems are no...
