Donkey Kong Roundup
Character Breakdown: Donkey Kong
We started out with our overview of DK way back in June. We took a look at the core values that make Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong.
The Donkey Kong Workout
In the Donkey Kong workout, emphasis was placed on getting big muscles, strong hands, and ridiculous upper body strength, utilizing some common in-game items!
The Skills of Donkey Kong
We took a look at DK's skills next. We learned about his forward rolls, the monkey vault, balancing, and good places to go and practice these skills!
The Philosophy of Donkey Kong
Finally, we checked out the mind of the ape, where we learned that this dude isn't necessarily all brawn and no brains, he's just learned to live life a little simpler(and maybe better) than the rest of us!
And THAT, ladies and gents, is finally it for our Donkey Kong, quite possibly the longest character breakdown we've ever done(if you factor in the break from June to October...). Sorry for the short post today, I'll be making up for it tomorrow with a brief discussion on the core idea of emulating and trying to become our favorite video game characters. It should be a pretty good read!
Until then, make sure to follow me on Twitter, like the blog page on Facebook, hit up the Tumblr, and continue to be awesome!
