      Oh, and I don't like the fact that "Animal Crossing" has been retroactively labeled as being "designed for girls"; that just makes me ... uncomfortable.

My personal decision to purchase the Wii will be based on if/when the next installments of the Animal Crossing and Namco Tales series are released for the Wii.

I guess the point I am trying to make is that I have more loyalty to particular game franchises than to game systems. I chose the Gamecube in the first place because I wanted to play the old Sonic games. The name of the system does not factor into my purchasing decisions at all. Am I the only one who thinks like this [anybody who has more loyality to a game franchise than a game system]?

I tend not to think of Animal Crossing as a girlís game; in the same way the Sims and Sims 2 isnít a girlís game.

I've never let the name affect my decision. My problem is that the Wii name is the newest in a long line of Nintendo decisions (cartridges for the N64, purple lunch box look for the Cube) that I can't explain with a straight face when asked about, and can't keep a straight face when Nintendo asks why people don't take them seriously.

What I DO know is that Mario, Metroid, and Zelda all look excellent and my anticipation is off the charts for Smash Bros.

After looking at all this stuff, I must say...

I. AM GETTING. A WIIIIIII!

And probably an XBox 360 at some point if I save my pennies. Right now, if the price we've been quoted on PS3 is accurate, though, they can kiss my ass.

New word today not confirmed, but apparently someone went over the patent for the Wiimote and showed how it should also be able to transmit sound. In other words not just a speaker, but a mic too. If so, could be fun for Karaoke games, voice commands and maybe even VoIP. I hope this one is true.

Would kinda eliminate the need for a headset playing online since you would have a speaker and mic right in your hand.
