Much of the show's excitement came from third parties (on my Nintendo Wii?), and some found Nintendo's announcement...

Perhaps the least surprising choice Nintendo could have made for an E3 reveal was Animal Crossing: City Folk ... at least, until they got to the voice chat. That was a pretty huge coup that seemingly came out of nowhere. But don't let that distract you from the heart of the game: digging, deco...
