    Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong-Quest was mentioned on John Linneman's recent DF Retro episode. It seems that there was more work done on the conversion that we ever thought before, thanks to one of the guys directly involved on said conversion. John's a friend of mine and this series deserves more views IMHO :)

    Too bad they didn't have anything to show of the work they did. Would have been amazing to get a tiny glimpse of what they had going, going from what the dude says it looked impressive. Still, very cool info to hear, since we didn't even know if they started on this game at all before.

    And honestly I thought DF was already one of the big channels..

    But the DF Retro section is by far my favorite! I'm actually the guy who convinced John to get a Atari Jaguar believe it or not. I'm friend of him on Facebook as well. Great guy to chat with ;)
