We believe it was Rob Zombie's kid brother Spider One who said "One by one they will be hand chosen, now this is what it's like when worlds collide."

At once? Then click the play button on the video above. But, be warned that this is ... well, it's weird. Frankly, we don't understand why someone would do this. Sure, we want to hear every K.K. Slider song too, but we don't want to listen to them all at once. [Via Go Nintendo]...

Twelve players might be a nice round number for straight-out races, but we've still been waiting patiently to see how many online opponents Nintendo will allow us in Mario Kart Wii's version of the classic battle modes.

Yesterday's big rumor is so interesting that we can't resist an excuse to discuss it further: Animal Crossing as MMO. What do you think of the idea? More importantly, how do you think it will work? Better yet, do you think it will work well? The idea is certainly intriguing; we like the idea of f...

Could Nintendo's Animal Crossing for the Wii take the form of an MMO? Well, of course it could, but will it? Well, we don't really know for sure, but how cool would that be?

You could just make up your opinions just for the free keychain, but we wouldn't condone that sort of thing. No, we're a very anti-lies and anti-deception kind of outfit here at Wii Fanboy. We just like to keep it real like that, as the kids say. So, instead give Nintendo your honest thoughts on the...
