A Nintendo podcast for all things Mario, Zelda, Wii U, 3DS, and more!

SuperZambezi On May - 4 - 2015

Welcome to our fifth Video Game Lodge! This time we’re playing Donkey Kong 64! The game was just released on the Wii U eShop and it’s available right now! For the rest of April and May, The Lost Levels community will play Donkey Kong 64 at the same time, updating each other on our progress and sharing thoughts and questions as we go along. Then on May 30, The Lost Levels podcast will record an episode on the game, featuring questions that the listeners leave for us in the comments!

So for those of you who don’t like to read:

  1. Buy Donkey Kong 64 from the Wii U eShop for 10 bucks.
  2. Play the game throughout the months of April and May.
  3. Leave questions in the comments for us to answer on the podcast, post your progress and discuss the game in the chatbox.
  4. Listen to our episode on Donkey Kong 64 on May 30!

To help everyone stay engaged, we’re creating different groups that you can join as soon as you earn a certain achievement within the game. Just leave a comment stating where you belong and we’ll add you to the list! No point in lying, this is all for fun! We have seven groups for this VGL:

  • Mister Sushi

    Haha looks like no one is joining.
    Toldja we should have done SMRPG.

    • SuperZambezi

      Or you could get the game and join yourself.

      • Mister Sushi

        Uh…
        (same deal with metroid)

        • SuperZambezi

          The game is less than 100mb…

          • Mister Sushi

            This time with the money :/ I have lots of space thanks to getting another USB device.

  • SuperZambezi

    Just a heads up, whether or not we continue to do the VGL segment will depend on how many participate in this current one. It’s no fun to see dozens of people vote and only see three people participate. If you’re playing, let us know!

    • Mister Sushi

      If no one participates in DK64 for May, can we do SMRPG?

      • SuperZambezi

        No. Even fewer people voted for SMRPG.

        • Mister Sushi

          But SMRPG has been out for a while, so more people are likely to have it. Also I can join in ._.

          • SuperZambezi

            Nope. That doesn’t really give me much hope.

  • Accj21

    Is this worth the money? Not sure if I’m going to buy it or not.

    • SpiderStaryu

      To me, it was worth the money. I really enjoy platforming/adventure games like this, and hey, It’s only $10! So put it this way,if you do have extra money lying around, you should totally get it!

  • Shadow3200

    I got it as soon as it was released on April 16th, It took me a while to get the controls mapped comfortably This game is a masterpiece in so many ways!

    • SuperZambezi

      How far are you now?

      • Shadow3200

        April was a heavy month for gaming releases mario kart dlc, dk64, mewtwo content and More, don’t play it too often am at 20% 4 kongs played stages 1 2 and barely touched stage 4 (just found out I skipped stage 3 lol) 42 golden bananas 8 blueprints 5 fairies and 2 boss keys

        • SuperZambezi

          Awesome, added you onto the list!

          • Shadow3200

            Rescued Chunky in frantic factory, honestly in all my dk64 playthroughs I always end up going to gloomy lagoon before frantic factory lol

  • Green Piggy

    Played blind and only got up to Angry Aztec :(
    But group wise, I just rescued Diddy

    • SuperZambezi

      Awesome! Adding you to the list!

      • Green Piggy

        Does this mean I get to be on the Podcast? Cuz I don’t have ANY recording equipment.

        • Green Piggy

          I just didn’t want to be a guest :|

          • SpiderStaryu

            Oh no, not like that. Your name will be mentioned on the podcast though! The groups are to help show how far everyone is, it’s just a fun little thing we do. :p

          • Green Piggy

            I knew that. I just didn’t want to guest star

  • Mother4EverX

    Could you believe that I don’t even have 10 bucks….well I have 20 but I’m saving that XD so no DK for me sadly, and I really wanted to try the series

    • Yoshiman222

      You should just go and buy it then. You can always get that $10 back later. It’s completely worth getting.

      I’m sad to see so many young’ins who had never played the N64 original and are uncertain of whether to get it or not…

      • Accj21

        You can get the money back? How? And could you get money back for other games as well?

        • Yoshiman222

          …it’s called buying more eShop cards… wow…
          working. that stuff.

          • Accj21

            Oh… The way you worded it made it sound like you could get a refund or something. I’m too young to work anyway.

  • MK KINGZ

    I had some technical issues with my Wii U that’s the reason why I haven’t yet purchased it sorry I did vote.

  • Dylan King

    omg i love this game. this makes me want a new 3d DK game for wii u. PLEASE!!!

  • Green Piggy

    Got to Frantic Factory!

  • Mister Sushi

    Have you guys considered maybe doing a more recent and popular title for the VGL like SM3DW or DKCTF?

    • SuperZambezi

      For more recent games, we usually just have a normal episode shortly after release. And we focus on retro games so that people can go back and play great games they may have missed in the past. Or to just replay awesome titles.

  • Yoshiman222

    101% done the game. And right before the end date too. :P

    • SuperZambezi

      Woo!
