You have one more Heart of health on the 3DS. Think the gameplay was tweaked to be slightly easier since people complained the Wii version was to hard. I have not played the Wii version so maybe it is but kind a bummer is you ask me that people moan about a platformer being hard. As kids every game was damn hard way back when,we were not bitching but I guess I'm an old man gamer lol. :P

Hard? Okay, here is the chance to say that DKCR was really easy. Those people who are complaining about it being hard, should play Donkey Kong Country (the original) or Diddy Kong's Quest and then tell what hard is. Therefore, in the opposite position, I would complain that DKCR was easy.

That said, I tried to follow a slow pace while playing the game, so as to make the game last more... (By the way, I did the same with Super Mario Galaxy 2.) Also, that does not mean I am some kind of a superior player. I can accept that they are kids and we are old, but in the other hand and we were kids back then (in 1995/1996) when we were playing the first and harder DK games (which I still found them hard/harder).

Finally, it is not a good sign when you see that nowadays game companies weaken the challenge in their games, so as to make them more appealing to the even more casual transforming generation/consumers.

It has two modes, the stuff to make it easier is basically in the easy mode which just got renamed.

Also might just be different strokes. I totally stink at super mario world and dkcr gave me a ton of trouble but dkc and dkc 2 are cake to me these days. Granted it has alot to do with the fact that i played em so much.

That guy Yuzo Koshiro makes some really nice music in games (it is surprisingly good for its age).

I'm a little more partial to his Actraiser work myself. Putting together synth rock and dance beats is great and all, but making something that literally feels like a classical masterwork is something else entirely.
The symphonic compositions of the Actraiser soundtrack are amazing. I wish the cd wasn't so damn rare and expensive.
But I guess that's something to put in the music topic...

So Sony really want to ship around 16M PS4's this year? Do they really think they will sell that many? If so the arrogance is still around or its still being poorly run.

Poorly run or excellently executed?
Well the price or launch titles havent been announced yet so I guess we'll see why they think they can be so confident.

If its £100 they would have a chance but they would be hard pushed to sell that many in a year let alone a couple months.

No one has ever shipped that many systems at launch due to demand. Not PS1, PS2,Wii or DS.
All of those ended up selling in the hundreds of millions by life's end. So yeah 16M is the kind of sales if lucky first 2 years,not the last 2-3 months of the year
