Smash is finally here, and with it, the return of a character I love dearly and spent many years thinking I'd never see again.
In honor of the occasion, I wrote an essay a few days ago about my favorite game series, my favorite game character, and everything they mean to me. It's a story that stretches an entire lifetime of happiness, inspiration, disappointment, yearning, and finally joy and satisfaction. If you have some time, and if you like DKC and King K. Rool, you might want to check it out!altermentality.wordpress.com/2…
It's really personal and I've had a few people tell me it made them cry, which I wasn't expecting. But I'm very happy with it, so I hope you enjoy if you decide to give it a look.
