Hotel Dusk may have dominated most of this week, but one of the biggest videos we saw this week was dedicated to a non-adventure game. Yes, sometimes we do take breaks from pointing and clicking. So what tempts us away?
Racing. Definitely racing. And Diddy Kong Racing DS is definitely going to pull us away from adventure gaming, and that's why this video is in the spotlight this week. It's not the best quality, but it works nicely with some of the other footage we've seen. Check it out after the jump.

That seems like a suitable replacement for the coin collecting minigame. Especially since I could never do it...this looks about as challenging while just as easily doable.

The video isn't working anymore, it was removed by the uploader.

Diddy Kong Racing sucked on the N64. Why even bother porting it over when you've got something as awesome as MKDS?

What good is a friday video that doesn't work? *raises eyebrow*
I think Diddy Kong Racing is one of the better kart racers out there. It was much better than Mario Kart 64 in it's prime, what with a different strategy for items, three different vehicles, and a plethora of lush, colorful tracks.
It may not end up being better than Mario Kart DS, but it's wi-fi supports up to six players, and it's rumored to support all 38 tracks. You can't tell me that doesn't look pleasing.
I for one loved the original and greatly look forward to getting my hands on this.
