Donkey Kong Country uses a lot of over the top antics in it's gameplay. One of the most iconic of those things being the classic Donkey Kong Barrel Cannon. Now when I look at something crazy in a video game, I want to know if that thing would really WORK! Today Austin is going to do just that! Will Donkey Kong and company blast off into adventure or will they fall short and fall to their DOOM? It's time to find out!

  • Game theory i need answers. I got something I've been wondering for a while. I only played the first 3 Dk country games. I never had the chance to play anything after. This will get lost in the comments anyways so this won't matter In Dk country, what if donkey kong was the real villain and king k rool is the real hero. Why are the animals that are not crocodiles after the kongs? In the first game DK defeated the queen bee which caused the king bee to have his revenge in the 2nd game. The bees in the 3rd game seems to be robots, what happened to all the bees from the first 2 games? Is it because they don't want to work with k rool after the king and queen bee were taken out by the kongs or is it because they were on the verge of extinction?? What about the necky bosses in the first game? They were never seen again, so it seems that a mini necky from the first game wanted to avenge the big necky bosses from the first game, changing his name in the process. They weren't seen again after the 2nd game. Different types of animals weren't seen again including the animals in the water. How did this started? With a missing pile of bananas in DK cave, why did DK go through the trouble to take out the other animals just to get his hands on the bananas, even the bosses who had big piles of bananas just like DK, did those banana piles belong to DK which is why DK went after them as well? If that's the reason then does that mean that he keeps all the bananas in a cave which has a risk of getting rotten or if it isn't and it belong to those bosses then why DK would bother them anyways. King k rool took the bananas from DK which lead to DK destroying anything that gets in his way. Even monkeys from those games were against the kongs. After the first game the animals on the island saw that DK was a problem which is the reason why K rool kidnapped DK, after the 2nd game this time K rool kidnapped diddy kong as well.

  • Sorry I'm a bit late to the party, but am I missing something? At 5:20, he says 1.77m and 0.667s makes for 26.5 m/s. This, to me, seems completely wrong given that 0.667s x 10m/s is 6.67m, far longer than the 1.77 he measured. I think our dear Austin is out by a factor of 10, and it should be 2.6 m/s; much more unimpressive.

  • 5:16 ??? 1.77m/0.667s ~= 2.652m/s NOT 26.52m/s This then means the acceleration is (2.652m/s)^2/(2×1.5m) ~= 2.344m/s^2

  • Minecraft's boat is even weirder than its lava, even on servers. First of all the more you jump on the boat the more momentum you gain and the more momentum you gain the harder you fall somehow and then you die if you gain too much. On servers, standing or jumping on the boat is considered flying -_- anybody want to explain that, I keep getting kicked off the server because I'm standing on a boat -_- it's ridiculous and asinine

  • Hi Austin, I'm not sure you read the comments often but I wanted to see if it was worth looking into the newest Minecraft update which adds Vibrations and more importantly a set time for the speed of "sound" which is about 20m/s which is drastically slow compared to earth's speed of sound. Of course this means that "sound" travels slower but I'm more interested in what drastic effect this would cause on the life of that planet and if a regular human would even survive in those atmospheric conditions. Have a lovely holiday season! Tavian
