    They are right on about the wavebird. It's by far my favorite new toy.

    I can't wait for Super Monkey Ball 2 & Zelda.

    I thought Sims Online was cancelled? I can't wait to give that one a try.

    That's probably where I got confused, Brian. I was very excited about Sims Online when I first read about it, but wrote it off when I confused it with another cancelled game, figuring the Online scheme was logistically challenging. Does anyone have a link where I can get more information? The last I read about it was very early on... I know there is a chat feature, and I think you can create 1 household (A "home site" as it were) which, if popular, will grant online time & or bonuses of some sort.

    I can't wait for the big Nintendo titles. I feel like a little kid waiting for Mario, Metroid and Zelda...

    Glad to see Psychonauts getting some press. Looking forward to this one, since I've liked all of the other games that Tim Schaffer has done. Incidentally, Lucasarts has announced a second full throttle game, which has me a little worried-not quite sure what it'll turn out to be...

    Nintendo didn't win many awards, but they did get a lot of second place winners. That says something.

    A lot of varied games. I'm happy.

    Console game of show is a pretty big award. Runner up for game of show is no small feat either. I'm interested in how Doom III got game of show though, Penny-arcade.com makes it out to be an engine with no game.
