Dad Hacks Donkey Kong to Make Pauline as the Playable Character
Here's a story that will make you go: awww.
When Mike Mika's daughter showed disappointment of not being able to play as a female character in the old NES title Donkey Kong. He did something when most dads would just simply shrug and say 'deal with it': he hacked the game. Now, instead of playing as Mario (fun fact: that's the Italians' first appearance in a video game), his hacked version of Donkey Kong has Pauline, the damsel in distress (no more?), as the main playable character. And yes, she is tasked to save Mario.
Check out Mika's version of Donkey Kong in action.
