In-game Pro Moments
« on: March 03, 2013, 01:57:08 pm »
Let's dedicate this thread to moments in a DK game where skill/luck/whatever got you out of a sticky situation.  Looking forward to some crazy posts!

I'll start it off~!

Haha, nice Tyr1ck. That was a well executed wall jump! (And a very wide jump! haha).

You could've climbed the broken ladder (since there wasn't any other barrels coming above you), it would have been less risky. But anyway, all that matters is that you survived, and still got 100 points, and you played with style! haha.

That was the grossness Marky!  I love the big "bang" of the controls.

Cool Stuff guys.

Nice reactions, Dave.  My only complaint is that your hand slamming the jump button caused the windows in my apartment to rattle.   ;)

I hope you didn't injure yourself on that one.

Nothing inspires a "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!" course of action better than the sound of that "last chance" timer countdown.

OK, not as awesome as some of the videos put up, but that did not stop me from calling it The Great Fireball Escape anyways! 8)

Good one, George.  Not only did you survive the stage, but you successfully leeched a barrel/fireball combo for 300 points, twice!

EDIT:  One correction to make.  You gained 300 points from a barrel/fireball combination, on 2 separate occasions; the first was indeed leeching, but the second was the traditional method of jumping over both.  Just wanted to make sure my description was technically accurate.
