Late last week, I, along with a number of other gaming bloggers and writers, pointed out a video of the as-of-now-Europe-only Donkey Kong: Original Edition, an updated--to include the cement/pie factory level and a few (also previously MIA) intermission animations--NES version of Nintendo's arcade classic. (Here's my post about the game, in case you missed it.)
tinycartridge.com in response to that site's coverage of the video: "It's bizarre that they bothered adding to the crappy NES port."
I have to say, I completely disagree with the opinion that the NES version of Donkey Kong is "crappy." Sure, it's not "arcade perfect"--it's missing an entire stage and a few intermission animations--but other than that it's remarkably faithful to its forefather, especially given its age.
As such, I think it's kind of cool that the brass at Nintendo decided to add some of the missing elements back into their 8-bit port of the game. I hope they eventually give it a wider release, though; it would be a crying shame if the only folks who get to experience it are those who pony up for a Wii bundle that's currently only available in Europe.
