I'm pretty excited for this animal crossing the holidays make a comeback which is nice I read on Amazon.com information on this animal crossing it has this.. "Play at different times of the year to experience different activities, holidays and seasons. And when visiting a friend in another country, experience the holidays native to their culture."

That sounds very interesting if you can do that also if you buy both animal crossing city folk and wii speak at amazon you get it for $75.48 instead of $79.98 not a bad deal I guess if you intend to get both items, but I'm sure other retailers should have specials with AC:CF and wii speak when it comes out..

I plan to order both animal crossing and the wiispeak on amazon plus the $10 towards a game purchase is nice too I can't wait to play this new animal crossing only 21 days to go it's too bad I don't have wifi right now, but I hope to have it by early 2009 when I do I'll be playing brawl and AC:CF with friends like crazy. :bouncy:

They really dropped the ball by not having any motion controls, I mean you can make it optional so those who like playing with more traditional controls can turn it off.

I know some people liked playing with the stylus in Wild World, while others preferred the d-pad. I just like having the option.

^ I agree. You'd think they'd have you walk over to a tree equipped with an Axe, hold A+B and swing to chop it down.

Or something along those lines.

IGN: Sounds good, but you're also packing WiiSpeak with Animal Crossing, right?
Cammie Dunaway: We are going to do a limited edition bundle with Animal Crossing that will run for $59.99 and will come out on the 16th as well.

Doomed is somewhat right. I couldn't find a bundle on Amazon, and you know those ninjas do how they do.

You could buy both together for $75, which Amazon proudly declared allowed you to save 4.98!

Well I heard rumors that it is going to be exclusive to certain retailers , most likely Gamestop since they mentioned it during a manger conference.

It is strange though that we can't even pre-order it yet, the release date isn't that far away. I wonder how limited this bundle really is going to be?

There's a theatre in the city for facial expressions I think I wish they included the animal crossing anime that was released in Japan in this as a option to watch once you get all the facial expressions..

But what other game can keep you engaged for a year? Besides an MMO, I certainly can't think of any. My wife and I played the first AC for nearly a year (playing a few days every week) and I played AC:WW for around 6 months pretty actively before losing interest.

If you are into this style of game, I can't think of many games that give you the bang for your buck that AC does.

That isn't saying that they couldn't have beefed up the feature set or substantially changed the gameplay, I certainly think they should have, but this iteration will sell like gangbusters just like the rest and I believe it is worth the money.

I think if you own a DS you can use it to put your character into it via download play and then take it to friends house to play also no need for the AC:WW game for it too I think that's how it works..

A year of playtime for $50 is pretty good by my standards. I'm already burnt out on Brawl and it hasn't been a year and I'm more than satisfied from my purchase. Of course, I've never played any Animal Crossing games before, so all the better for me.

On another note, I've seen several locations where the Wii Speak bundle was announced for $59.99 but like others have yet to see anyone offering it up for pre-sale. I'm hoping this isn't a GameStop exclusive...

I wish they would make more use of the memory on the Wiimote for these sort of things. Each town could have a Visitor Center or something.

My roommate is getting this, so I don't need to worry about purchasing it myself. I just don't know if I should play AC again, since like many people have said, you'd get sick of it after a while, and I'm still kinda sick of the GC version. It's been like what, 4 years?

Ocarina of Time's replays have kept me busy on and off for 7. Link's Awakening for 10. Sonic (pick one) for at least 5, Dungeon Keeper II (make a p2p to play my boyfriend) for 8, and Kirby's Adventure for 13. I have at least 10 other games that have been faithful friends for a LONG ASS TIME. *pets her Intellivision, inherited from her grandmother*

When I get games, I fully intend to keep them and play the living hell out of them (or at least until they fall apart, then I download).

But if you mean new content constantly, then you've got a point. But that's why I have free MMOs.

And people keep comparing it to the GameCube version. I got sick of that in about 3 weeks and gave it back to my roommate. Harvest Moon lasted about 2 days.

It all depends on your tastes. Funny how you mentioned free mmos, all of them bore me within minutes.

I think as gamers some of us have this tendency to finish a game as fast as possible and disover everything ASAP. AC can't be played in this manner. I don't play it every day, or even every week, but the times I do play are fun because I get to see how the little town is adjusting.

I couldn't play it every day though, but that's not a bad thing in my opinion. Basically, avoid the temptation to discover everything in one sitting and you'll like this game more.

I'm not getting this game though. Looks like more of the same, so instead I will play old AC again.

This is what people said about ACWW, and it's very much true. Resist the urge to have a three hour fishing marathon. You'll love it more just playing a little every time you turn it on.

This.

I was probably the only one in my base camp of friends who was playing this after everyone else had gotten rid of it, because I wanted to see if there was anything else to get. I was mistaken, and that was the end of my 4-month AC run.

Well yeah, that was the same for me. But playing one game for about a year straight is fucking impressive for me. Well worth the $35.00 or whatever I paid for it when it came out.

I suspect City Folk will be the same despite them pretty much half-assing it.

It's at $69.99 instead of $59.99.. :wall:

I have a $50 giftcard at GS, and I really, really hope GS gets this bundle @ $60!

Also, what the hell? I really never looked at the WiiSpeak thing..and it looks like the same exact thing the 360 uses for the Scene It controllers...but it's NOT a headset? You just.. plug it in and..speak out loud? :rofl:

I wonder how well it'll pick up...

According to the comments over at GoNintendo, Gamestop told a guy the bundle would be 50.

Hmmm.
