When Animal crossing was first announced, I didn’t give it much credit. In fact, it appeared to be just an child’s version of an MMORPG. Since I am not a fan of MMORPGs, I barely looked at it twice. What I didn’t know, is that it is actually a pretty fun game with plenty to do and see.
The only reason I did finally check it out, is that I have daughters. Although the puppy dog eyes do not work on me, video games do, so of course I gave in. I can’t say I played it more than an hour or so, but Nintendo definitely had something there. So, with the upcoming release of Animal Crossing 3D, my curiosity peaked. I am not sure that I will spend the money on the game, now that my kids are older, but the new trailer below looks amazing.
With the fast approaching launch of the Wii U, we are sure to see plenty of “unofficial” merchandise for the console. One that has really caught my eye is an unofficial Wii U Pro controller by Interworks Unlimited. The controller incorporates an SNES controller design right into the xBox-ish looking controller. The design looks perfect in the pictures, although the sites selling the controller do not have actual images as of yet. The wireless controller is stated to sell for approximately $34.99 US and will work for both the Wii and Wii U. What are your thoughts on teh design?
