You may not place first in this race, Bumper, but you’ve earned a spot in my heart. Climax Studios’ Diddy Kong Racing Adventure initially intended to bring in many Racing returnees, with dark doppelgängers – including a Dark Bumper – operating as their rivals. You know, a more obscure character, someone harboring a more succinct, less celebrated existence. I do have this feeling of what the characters were doing outside of the game when I was a child, and that wondering still exists inside of me. By Joshua 'NantenJex' Goldie // 4 days ago. Timber is a young tiger playable character in Diddy Kong Racing, who returned for its remake, Diddy Kong Racing DS. He is an old friend of Diddy Kong, and son of a family dubbed "the Tigers", who seem to frequent visiting Kong Country. And this is something nobody even explained or answered about his statement, and it does feel uneasy how he’s mistreated to end up in a bad situation. (Amusingly, Loveday was also relieved he could still helm the M-rated Bumper prequel he envisioned.). But, thankfully, that’s not all Bumper has to his credit. For example, what was Frank West doing during the events of Dead Rising 3? Well, Loveday’s insight on the matter seems accurate; he doesn’t have much of one. Conversely, I don’t think TheAnvil considers it canon, which leads into the totally serious friction that exists between us. However, if we were judging Bumper purley from his two in-game appearances, his ho-hum resumé doesn’t offer much worth discussing. license. I’m currently deciding if I should hunt down a copy of Assault or if I should just watch a Let’s Play of it instead. Now this is another character that I don’t really remember that much. Afterwards, future titles could expand on Bumper’s saga, perhaps implying he escaped by adorning wanted posters in a town somewhere. Thus, 1997’s Diddy Kong Racing remains the badger’s biggest appearance. But that’s just my opinion, so anybody can have a different perspective when viewing characters. (Amusingly, Loveday was also relieved he could still helm the M-rated Bumper prequel he envisioned. Bumper has average speed and good acceleration, but with weak turning abilities. However, I am slightly more optimistic than I used to be. I remember liking Banjo-Tooie‘s opening, with Banjo and Kazooie casually playing poker with Mumbo and Bottles, and I liked how the pair where hanging out in the intro to Nuts & Bolts.

Conker, in his 2004 written forward commemorating the then-new Conker: Live & Reloaded, made a passing remark that implied one of his former associates “was in jail.” Loveday, a man whose authority I defer to, confirmed in 2012 that it was Bumper, and the veteran Rare figurehead was asked later that year to clarify Bumper’s situation. I, using my intuition, figured there was always something suspicious about Bumper, and I laughed when my hunch was proven correct. The game is set on Timber's Island and revolves around Diddy Kongand his friends' attempt to defeat the intergalactic antagonist, a wizarding pig named Wizpig, through winning a series of races. But I can blame myself that I wasn’t the fan of the game due to many reasons that I have expressed before. A decade later, Bumper reprised his role for Diddy Kong Racing DS. So, when the foul Wizpig endangers the normally serene Timber’s Island, he’s eager to become the racing champion Taj sought. A decade later, Bumper reprised his role for Diddy Kong Racing DS. Its manual explains how Bumper, unlike most of his kin, relishes in speed and adventure.
