Donkey Kong Country Wil Rock Your World (But You Already Knew That)

Nothing much to say.  Donkey Kong Country 4 is destined to become the hottest Nintendo Wii game of the 2010 holiday season, and every gamer young and old who rushed out to buy Super Mario Bros 5 will be rushing   I only ask three things of Nintendo and Retro Studios: 1) Make Donkey Kong challenging; 2) Make the game at least as long as Mario 5, and 3) package the game in a banana-colored case.

Classic video game values sell.  2D arcade-style games sell.  2D Mario games are sensational sellers.  At what point does the game industry get its act together and follow suit?
