I've gotta say, this looks great

When Nintendo of America announced the release of Donkey Kong Country Returns a few months ago, I think I reacted with a shrug and an "eh." (Or maybe it was a "meh.")

Anyway, I wasn't all that interested or impressed, despite the fact that I very much enjoyed the three Donkey Kong Country titles that were released for the SNES way back when.

That said, my cynical attitude toward the game faded somewhat after watching the following trailer:

Actually, it may be more accurate to say my attitude went from "eh" to "hmmm" after watching the trailer above. (I'm an exceptionally emotional person, aren't I?)

It wasn't until I watched the following preview, courtesy of IGN, that the game had my full attention.

I read the preview in Nintendo Power this issue and was SO EXCITED! I have to decide between buying DKC or Epic Mickey for myself as a prize at the end of November for finishing my 5th novel...

Yeah, I'm excited for it now, too. Not sure when I'll get it, but I will get it at some point. (Kirby first!)

Anyway, can't wait to hear about your novel. You will be blogging about it, right??
