Donkey Kong Country uses a lot of over the top antics in it's gameplay. One of the most iconic of those things being the classic Donkey Kong Barrel Cannon. Now when I look at something crazy in a video game, I want to know if that thing would really WORK! Today Austin is going to do just that! Will Donkey Kong and company blast off into adventure or will they fall short and fall to their DOOM? It's time to find out!

Did... it bug anyone else a bit that the sprite he used to represent the cannon barrels was actually the barrel that contains DK/Diddy/Dixie/Tiny if you got hit earlier? I mean, it's the barrel with the branding, so I suppose it makes sense that he used it, but...

i'm very sorry to tell you this my guy but you have your comma in the wrong spot. 1.77m over 0.667s equals to 2.652 m/s i plugged that number into the accelleration formula and got 2.344..... m/s^2. sooo reasonable accelleration i guess? i didn't continue the calculations because i was too lazy to do it. I love your videos, Austin. Please don't take this as a personal attack. Please don't hurt my papa Austin. Kind Regards from Austria :)

Thought I was crazy at 5:16 when Austin put 1.77m/0.667s = 26.52m/s then played back and he SAYS .0667 but the editors put 0.667 on the visuals. Good to know I’m not that tired yet

Austin is totally barking up the wrong banana tree here. The problem isn't that the barrels have no space to accelerate, it's that they have infinite storage capacity. They're clearly bigger on the inside than the outside because Donkey, Diddy, and Ramby can all fit in them at the same time, which is physically impossible, which means a bunch of completely different stuff for him to rant about.

HEY MATPAT! So I have an idea for your fourth channel (to complete the little circle thing in all of your channel logos, food theory being the third one). It could be Life Theory, involving things in the real world. Things like “why do people enjoy __ so much?” You could get I to more science and math stuff, because both science and math are part of real life. Personally, if you did make this, I would love for you to explain why schools teach us stuff we might not even need in the real world. I think that’s a question we all want the answer to. Well, I doubt you’ll actually be reading this comment, but I’m gonna do my best to get it in your sight.

A suggestion for an episode: In Danganronpa 1, Mondo Owada is being executed for murder. For his execution, he is in a Motorcycle Death Cage spinning very fast. At the end, he is turned into butter. I was wondering if you could explain this, cause no one in the community is able to figure it out.

NICKTHEAMAZING1 7 dager siden
I feel like when Austin is doing a theory video it's not nearly as interesting or as investing compared to MattPat. I just feel cheated when someone other than Matt makes a theory video on this channel. I almost feel like Austin should just make his own theory channel, that way when I see there is a new video from Game Theory, its always Matt, and not Austin. Its not like I hate Austin, it is just weird to know it isn't just Matt who does these videos. Its always a little disappointing when there is a new video, and its just Austin. No Matt in sight to actually make this video truly entertaining, just plain ol' newbie Austin. (Sorry for the rant.)

You can tell if it's Austin doing the video by looking at the thumbnail's letters, if they are blur it's Austin. If they are green it's Mat Pat.

From a professional standpoint you could at the very least respond. ijs

I never noticed how frequent and versitile barrels were in all sorts of Donkey Kong games until now If history were a bit different and barrels weren't used in arcade Donkey Kong/DKC, then I can't even imagine what Donkey Kong games would look like today I wonder what caused them to include barrels in the first place? Did they think of Barrel of Monkeys and associate the two? Or did they just need something for Donkey Kong to chuck at Jumpman?
