YEEEEEEY NEW ZELDA GAME!!!! I haven`t heard anything about it up until now! That made my day!!!

I`m glad they are making a new Donkey Kong for the wii that doesn`t involve drums...I didn`t even bother playing that game.

I actually like them better in 8 bit because that`s what I`m most familiar with.

What a lot of people don`t know is that Mario, and the Princess, started out in the Donkey Kong games. Mario was the character you controlled and the Princess was who you rescued.

OK. Maybe a lot of people is an exaggeration, but a lot of the younger gamers who never played an 8 bit game may not know it.

"Back in my day, Mario didn`t even have a name! HEY! WHAT ARE YOU KIDS DOING ON MY GAMING SYSTEM!?"
