Unboxing Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D

{Video will be recorded once I can talk better...Thanks strep throat!}

I hope that everyone watched the Skylanders Giants Castaways vs Newlanders Round 6 Results and Round 7 Matches.  I made sure to point out in both a few things, among them being that TRU's BOGO 40% Off Sale (5/19/5/25) would be on the table for those wanting DKCR3D.

This means you can pick up a new Wii U title you've wanted, and get 40% off DKCR3D...Buy DKCR3D and score 40% off a lesser priced title, or do like I did and purchase 2 copies of the game.

Why 2?  I still get asked this a lot, especially with unboxing vids...

I often pick up 2 games or Skylanders etc so I'll have one and my Nephew can have the other.  That is especially cool for titles like DKCR3D that have Local Co-op Play!

I will say I was very disappointed not to see the "instruction poster."  I know they have phased out the full blown manuals, but this game doesn't even have that smaller fold out page highlighting basic button functions etc.  I have always appreciated something full color from the mfg. as it is a nice not to collectors as well as beginners.  The game does have an "electronic manual" but I am not a fan..just as I prefer physical copies of the actual game...I prefer the same for the manual.

The other HUGE disappointment was the lack of a pre-order bonus.  I really wanted DK's tie.  I kid you not, I would have worn that places...It was AWESOME!  I know EBGames offered it up for some of their clue why the same wasn't done for GameStop here in the US.  That is actually why I didn't pre-order the game...I held out hoping something would happen.

I hope that maybe DK's tie will show up on Club Nintendo or some other "insider" outlet as it would be a killer addition to any Nintendo fan's collection!
