Did You Know Gaming Looks At Diddy Kong's Colorful History

Diddy Kong, who debuted as Donkey Kong's sidekick in Donkey Kong Country on SNES, is featured in Did You Know Gaming's latest video. The YouTube show takes a deep dive into Diddy's history and how he has evolved over the years.

Originally, Diddy Kong was planned to be a redesigned version of Donkey Kong Jr., but Nintendo eventually asked Rare to make him an entirely new character. The artist behind Diddy Kong's design, Kevin Bayliss, hoped that Diddy would provide a contrast to Donkey Kong. Whereas Donkey Kong is more aggressive and strong-looking, Diddy Kong has a friendlier and more childlike aesthetic. 

The video looks at all the games Diddy Kong is featured in, which spans across several console generations including the Nintendo 64 and Wii U. You can watch the video below to find out more interesting details.

Crytek's Futuristic Shooter Warface To Receive New Battle Royale Mode

Warface, the free-to-play online first-person shooter from Crytek, is joining in on the battle royale craze thanks to the success of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Crytek announced today in a blog post that the "new, experimental PvP” mode is coming to the shooter for a limited time alongside the next update.

The new Battle Royale mode is strikingly similar to PUBG, where everyone fights for survival until the last one standing, and also features a shrinking map. 

Crytek is the studio behind the upcoming shooter Hunt: Showdowns, which is currently requesting players to sign up for the alpha. In 2016, Crytek shut down five of its subsidiary studios, which you can read about here.

Artist Uses Nearly 150,000 Dominoes In This Incredible Tribute To Super Mario Odyssey

With 148,777 dominoes and a lot of patience, YouTuber TheDominoKing created an impressive tribute to Super Mario Odyssey. It took him over two months to build the setup, and the final product is nothing short of amazing. 

The nearly five minute video shows the entire setup. Each part is recorded individually and it's then all edited together to give the impression of continuity between each set. Despite this, it's still very well done and features a slew of characters and villains such as Mario, Pauline, Bowser, Cappy, and Princess Peach. We get to see some of our favorite characters in their wedding attire, too. You can watch the video yourself below.

SNL Pokes Fun At Mortal Kombat With New Skit

A recent sketch from Saturday Night Live parodies eSports by having two gamers face-off in a fighting game bearing a striking resemblance to Mortal Kombat.

In the skit, actors Pete Davidson and Kenan Thompson have to choose a fighter before the match begins. Unfortunately, Kenan is forced to play a character he's never heard of before: Boo Boo Jeffries (Tiffany Haddish), an amusing character that isn't very helpful in a fight. The skit is entertaining and is mostly ludicrous, making it worth a watch. You can check it out below.

Reader Discussion – What Is Your All-Time Favorite Mod For A Game?

Reader Discussion – What Is Your All-Time Favorite Mod For A Game?

Mods. They make games better! They can make them look prettier, fix issues the game may have, or even add new game modes. But what is your favorite mode you've used on a game?

The picture above might make you think I'll point to Dota 2 (the lineage of which goes back to a mod for WarCraft III), but my favorite mod is actually for Dota 2. Years ago, Dota 2 was a deeply customizable game. Launch options like "enable_addons" and "override_vpk" let players tinker around with various aspects of the game. The best mod was the NBA Jam announcer mod, which modified the game's lines for kills streaks, double kills, and more with to have Tim Kitzrow say things like "He's heating up!" and "When you get dunked on like that, you really oughtta consider retirement," in place of the default reads, many of which were lifted from Unreal tournament and frankly sound kind of lame. Tim Kitzrow made Dota 2 a much better game.
