The world of Vexx may seem to only be about towers, but it actually contains some very exotic locales. Okay, so they are mostly in towers, but it’s better than nothing, right? See where the Duck headed to next in this awesome 3D adventure game!

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

This past week in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze was spent in the Autumn Heights, which is full of interesting stages that are all overseen by a very judgemental owl and his equally judgemental crew. Watch as the Kongs battle their way through his pesky talons (and giant hammer!).

Nostalgic Notions

It can be said that the original Gauntlet, this past week’s “Nostalgic Notions” feature, set the stage for most dungeon crawlers, especially those of the multi-player variety. All we know is that it’s a heck of a lot of fun…as long as you always remember to not shoot the food!

Thanks for watching, and join us next week for a new video wrap-up!
