Rad Dad Hacks Donkey Kong So His Daughter Can Be the HeroLaura Beck3/11/13 10:30pmFiled to: ParentingDadsFatherhoodKids These DaysGamingProgrammingAwesometweetFb1781EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink Mike Mika's three-year-old daughter loves playing old video games with him. One day, when they were duel conquering Donkey Kong, she became a bit miffed because she could only pick Mario to rescue Pauline, and not the other way around. That's not only due to Mario being the worst (just ask Wario, he'll tell you all about it), but mainly because Mika's toddler daughter wanted to play as a girl.Advertisement"She's played as Princess Toadstool in Super Mario Bros. 2 and naturally just assumed she could do the same in Donkey Kong. I told her we couldn't in that particular Mario game, she seemed really bummed out by that," Mike posted to YouTube. "So what else am I supposed to do? Now I'm up at midnight hacking the ROM, replacing Mario with Pauline."DAD OF THE YEAR! GIVE HIM ALL THE BABIES TO RAISE! (It would actually suck if your reward for being dad of the year was being given even more kids to take care of. Dude should get a Hawaiian vacation!)This is similar to the instance last year when Mike Hoye hacked Zelda and switched all the gendered pronouns in the game from male to female for his daughter.
