Alright, who's planning on getting it?

I've set aside 15 or so hours of next week for it.

Eventually, it combines my favorite way of passing time (which is wasting time, axing trees and various acquiantances, running and destroying flower beds, and burying large sums of money in hidden spots) with a brand new internet spin...

though, the Wii's internet capabilities seem hit and miss, I wonder how this one will go...

I want it.  I need to dedicate more of my life to video games.  I hardly ever play and I have this fancy console.

Then you need to stop having a life.  Get indoors and stop meeting people!  :angry:

Smash Bros. Brawl's online play was god-awful, but Mario Kart has been flawless to date (with the exception being poor Fortis). I'm going to give Nintendo the benefit of the doubt on this and hoping the WiiSpeak works like a charm too.

You'll have to pick up a copy, Amanda. We've to go fishing!

Yep, I got  a copy but won't have a chance to play it until the weekend. I'm thankful I didn't play the DS version as I've read it's more so just a port of it with some enhancements.

I'll drop my friend-code after I spend more than half-a-day on it this weekend.

I did play the DS version, but I have no idea where I put my DS. It has an option to continue your DS game on the Wii.

I'm not really crazy about using the "wii-mote" so far.  It's way harder to catch bugs than it should be.  I read you can use the nunchuck too. I might try that.

I wish they would have added some options that made the port to the wii more "wii" like.  Now, it seems like I just bought another copy of Animal Crossing that's almost exactly the same as my cube version.  Not that it's not fun, and maybe something will show up.  Fishing is more fun with the wii mote.

Yeah, nunchuck is the way I prefer... You can move with the joystick and when the wii-mote isn't pointed at the screen, the A & B Buttons work like for running and using equipment... Or the buttons on the nunchuck can be used for running and equipment

Its a weird system, but when you get used to it works well

I'm loving it.

I don't mind the control scheme at all. It's the first time I've employed the nunchuck since the Wii's Super Monkey Ball at launch. My character is crushing on Blaire already.  I've been told I'm a dreamer by Rover. I got all excited when I supposedly caught my first fish, but it ended up being a can. Oh and Nook's a tyrant!  ;)

I made my donation for this day and scored my friend code if anyone would like to add me to their roster...

Forget starting up a Warhammer, I knew this was going to be bad.  :D

I can't wait to see what happens on Thanksgiving!

So did anyone partake in the Harvest Festival yesterday and help out poor Franklin?
