Fucking Tree Top Town

So, once upon a time, my lovely sister altena bought a Wii. And proceeded to brag about it. (And she got one in red, because she can get anything in red. Even things that you would not think exist in red, she has in red.) And she got Donkey Kong Country Returns, and proceeded to brag about that, too. And sure, Donkey Kong Country Returns looks pretty badass, but sequels are never as good as the original and I'm the one who has the Super Nintendo because I still live with our parents!

So, today, I dig out the ol' SNES, set it up and plug in the original Donkey Kong Country.

Now, things to know about me include I am terrible at video games. To date, I have only ever beaten one game. Final Fantasy X, and it took me something like seven months and a very detailed walk-through to do.

So, I'm playing DKC and this game is easy. It is so easy that I am kind of afraid that I might beat it in one sitting because I have 25 lives and haven't died once. About 20 minutes in, Bouncy Bonzana claims a few of my lives, but overall things are looking good. Things are looking embarrasingly good, actually, and I am questioning how well a 16-year-old video game really holds up.

And then Tree Top Town happens.

Fucking Tree Top Town.

And it occurs to me--I'm not reeeeeaaaaaally sure if I've ever beaten this level myself. I'm terrible at video games! There were several levels of DKC that altena had to beat for me when we were kids. And she's not here.

It's just me.
