You don't wanna work--you just wanna bang on the drums all day. At least that's what Nintendo's hoping with Donkey Konga, a made-in-Japan game-and-bongo-drum combo that's so oddball, we figured it would never come to the U.S.
But here it is. Codeveloped by Namco, the game has you hammering on the included bongo-drum controller--with up to three other players, via their own bongos or just regular joypads--in time to more than 30 tunes.
You'll jam to pop hits, kid-stuff medleys, and familiar riffs from Nintendo games. The drum gizmo even has a sound sensor to register hand claps, which you'll have to mix in with your bongo bashing to progress through the game's three modes. Or you can just forget the rules and choose free mode if you want to go all Matthew McConaughey on the thing. Just put on some damn clothes when the cops show up.
