I'm playing Donkey Kong Country Returns, it's a pretty fun game but they have a Time Attack mode for each stage. These time attack stages begin with a 3-2-1 countdown and have half-way points so if you die you can continue from the half-way point; if you die before the half-way point they will start you from the beginning but they will dock you a number of seconds depending on how far you were when you died.
Uhh, WHAT!? Instead of just starting you off fresh, they dock you seconds. I've seen up to 30 seconds on my clock starting from the beginning. To start with no time you just have to hit + and select "Retry" from the menu and the stage reloads and you're good to go. This is really fucking annoying if you have to retry often, I just don't understand WTF they were thinking; is some dumbass going to actually let them tack on extra time in A TIME ATTACK MODE!@#?
