Bongos replaced with carpal tunnel in DK Jet preview

The game looks okay, and despite reservations, we're open to the idea ... but the video preview of DK Jet at Jeux France makes us wince in anticipated wrist pain. There's a whole lotta shakin' goin' on there, and we're not sure that's really a good thing. Bongos, at least, were a little easier on ...

Today's please-play-play-better-in-person video: DK Bongo Blast

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...

New DK bongo game does away with pesky bongos

We enjoyed everything about the series of Donkey Kong-based bongo games on the GameCube with one small exception: That darn bongo controller. Now, thanks to the announcement of Donkey Kong Bongo Blast on the Wii you can enjoy all the bongo action without putting your poor hands and wrists through th...

DK Bongo Blast's bothersome controls

It was obvious that Donkey Kong Bongo Blast would abandon the bongo peripheral when it migrated from the GameCube to the Wii, but details on how the racing game will use the Wii remote weren't revealed until late last week. Players will shake their remotes and nunchucks at the same time to accelera...

No bongos for new DK game on Wii?

Over at the IGN blogs, resident Nintendo dude Matt did away with rumors that Nintendo would utilize the bongos in Donkey Kong Bongo Blast (which we all know was due to go to the GameCube, yet yanked for the Wii later). Instead, Matt says we already have a pair of bongos in the Wiimote and nunchuk a...
