The Thursday that will go down in Llama history. If you were on social media at all today, you would have noticed the viral live-feed that was trending of the Arizona Police Department chasing down two Llamas. Hilarity ensued and luckily no officer nor Llama were hurt. This much Llama love hasn’t been seen since Carl from The Jimmy Neutron Show graced our television screens. While we don’t have a packing animals on todays news, we do have some monkey business. Just in case you were too busy watching people looking foolish, we’ve got you covered in what you may have missed. In today’s Gaming Daily, the Nintendo E-shop goes Ape for Donkey Kong, more Amiibos are becoming retailer exclusives, and experience the fear of nightfall in the all new Dying Light interactive trailer. Now lets stop monkeying around and get to business.
Donkey Kong Mania hits Nintendo E-shop
After a mysterious disappearance on the Wii E-shop, the Donkey Kong Country trilogy is back and this time on their newest home console, the Wii U. Along with the re-releases of these games virtually, Nintendo is having a “Knock-Out Offer” sale that reveals that purchasing any of the participating Donkey Kong titles from the E-Shop garners you a 30% discount on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Wii U and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D for the 3DS.
As Nintendo will do, the Country trilogy is not available on the 3DS where it might seem more fitting but, at least Donkey Kong Land 1-3 are now available on both the 3DS and Wii U. Will the trilogy ever see the handheld? That is yet to be seen, Nintendo seems to drop these sorts of things into the E-shop without warning.
It is a bit odd how Ninendo decides which virtual games go on what platform and it becomes sort of a hassle for those that just want the nostalgia goodness on their preferred console. There is also no news on why the Country trilogy disappeared for so long. If you are bananas for the Kong family, now might be the time to get all your Ape love at a discount.

Golden Mario Amiibo Walmart Retailer Exclusive
Nintendo has announced that the previously leaked Golden Mario Amiibo is going to be a retail exclusive to Walmart, launching March 20th alongside Mario Party 10, finally confirming the suspicious rumors.
Let the second hand market rejoice, as for the actual fans and collectors of these little figures, it is a bit of a bummer that finding the ones you want will continually be a problem. So we suggest jumping on this as soon as possible if you want one at a reasonable price.

Techland Releases Interactive Dying Light Trailer
Techland is kind of infamous for their well made trailers—insert original Dead Island Trailer—and it looks like they are back at it again. This time releasing an interactive trailer for Dying Light where you can click Z on your keyboard to change the time from day to night in the trailer. This day cycle was one of the biggest features being touted before the release of the game.
Also, if you have played Dying Light, then you know how scary the night truly is. Not only do the weirdos come out at night but also the once slow tripping zombies become fast and furious. This is an interesting way of allowing those that haven’t tried out the game experience the terrifying cycle switch.
Well ladies and gents, that is it for today. Let us know how bananas you are for the Country Trilogy swinging its way back into our lives and whether you will be one of the zombies, erm, people lining up for the Golden Mario Amiibo. Like always stay away from the darkness that is night time and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
