Every second of every day I'm reminded I'm going to be playing a DS game on my Wii...

No-one's forcing you to buy it. Smilie

Looks pretty good, most likely the box methinks. if not, something very similar.

That's true. Maybe a boycott is just the kind of kick-up-the-arse Nintendo need. D:

Or maybe everyone else will buy it anyway because it was the ONLY half decent game at E3. *sigh*

That\'s quite crap. The sign should be lower as it looks messy being so close the the curve of the white top.

I tried playing the DS game but didn\'t like it at all and I\'m a fan of similar games like Harvest Moon.

I also think they should have put more detail into the characters this time around. They were okay for N64 and to some extent Gamecube but on Wii it looks crap.

I still cannot freaking believe that this and Wii Music are Nintendo's big holiday title...ridiculous!

Too me it looks like the DS version with waggle control... Smilie

Avoid Games Like the Plague, productivity++

I was so excited about this until they showed it.

Add me on anything. I'm always looking for new friends/opponents/town visitors/chances to appear more popular than I actually am.

Was anyone actually foolish enough to think this would be any different to the previous Animal Crossing games? Oh well, I'm still looking forward to it. Smilie Not THAT much though, as I'd pretty much forgotten about it until now...this just brings back the painful memories of E3...

The GC/N64 one was so full of atmosphere and free NES games...

They could have at least had the female perched on the male's shoulders while trying to reach up for one of those juicy red apples, but no, they are not even staring at juicy temptation. Arrrggh!, Animal Crossing is too fucking saintly.

You know, this game still remains fucked up as it has always been lol, you cannot even be fucking black in this game!. Even if you have a black Mii and use that Mii's face as a mask, as you can, you will still have a white body, lol. It begs belief!, why the fuck has nobody questioned Nintendo about the lack of black. What excuse could Nintendo possibly have for the lack of all races to be depicted in the game/s, and why still is the level of customization of your chara so pittifull in comparison to some other games, games that are not even community based!

How hard can it be to add a bit of colour ffs, what the hell is preventing them from doing this?. I just think it's seriously fucked up that people of black origin are forced into living in a town that is void of black people. Animal Crossing should be embracing diversity, not the opposite.

I should give a I have a dream speech to all these peeps on Wii Speak when I get the game.

Well, Animal Crossing is a Japanese game... In general Japanese games lack black people. This noone can deny.

Oh stop exaggerating. Smilie If you're really not impressed with the direction the new Animal Crossing is taking, don't buy it. Stop complaining and talk with your wallet.

Except there's no waggle as far as I recall.

im still wondering why it still has DS/N64 graphics...

The only problem with Animal Crossing is that it is Nintendo's only game, but other than that, I'm still looking forward to it. I'm afraid that they have not changed it enough to make it fresh, but we'll see. As it is, even if they don't change much, it will still be pretty great in its own right.

As for the box art, that looks about right.

Grumpy tonight Linkyshinks? Smilie

Who the hell is making them? Why should they have to add it just for the sake of diversity. I am not white, except I don't go expecting developers to put the token non-white guy (let be asian, black or arab) into the game, just for the sake of diversity.

Because they're making the game for EVERYONE. The whole concept is to have a unique character that you can customize to represent you. That's like asking why you'd give the option to make the character female. It's not just for the sake of diversity. It's for the sake of personalization and customization.

Anyway yeah I was excited about this game too back before they showed it. The early ideas of using the weather channel and stuff were intriguing. I guess they figured more of the same would be better than trying something new. Smilie

If you think about it, Japanese people aren't exactly 'white'. Yet, they don't bother putting their colour in either. It's probably just not an issue for them.

Looks pretty nice to me, kept it with that \"AC\" style. Come on guys, relax about E3, didn\'t you people heard that they wouldn\'t announce key titles at E3?
I do understand disappointment cause everyone expects so much fro, Nintendo, but look at the 3rd party, they need to shine too! The Conduit is looking awesome, Wiimotionplus is awesome, Wiichat will be cool as well, plus Animal Crossing, Sports Resort, Wiimusic and Pikmin. That\'s pretty good as far as I\'m concerned.

Wait til a Proper Nintendo event for announcements, i\'m sure they got stuff, but we can\'t expect them to shove 5 or so awesome games a year, while shove out peripherals and other things can we? Look at other companies, they haven\'t got this much stuff coming out. Smilie

Smilie Are you fucking serious?Smilie
The conduit wasn\'t even showed at E3. Wii Music really... your actually standing up for that nongameSmilie I was expecting atleast a teaser of a AAA Title, but come! they didn\'t give anything to their so called core audience hence the apology that was given. And yes I heard that the Mario and Zelda team was working, but at the same time why weren\'t we given info on these projects. Sony even gave a teaser of God of War 3 just to let the fans know it was coming. So basically the only promising thing we heard of was Pikmin. And we didn\'t even get any kind of of Visual for it.

As far as the AC problem goes I thought the point of the game was to place yourself in that world. Not everyone has light skin tones so that kinda makes the customization meh. Even Maple Story lets you be black and thats a free online MMO. Then there are the graphics which don\'t hold a torch to any other 1st party effort. Keep it real Nintendo dropped the ball this year.

Edit:Wii Chat... pleaseSmilie
Last time I checked Voice Chat in games has been done. Why the fuck should I be happy that someone came late to the table with an idea that has been done ages ago?

Am I the only person who will enjoy this game on account of having never played the prequels?

Can brawl anytime now.....if you want an easy win
