Great job by Nintendo returning to relevance from out of nowhere. This is going to be a weird console generation. The 360 and Wii will likely split the market, and their games will likely have very little crossover (de facto exclusives), due to the vast hardware differences between the two. The PS3 will show that only Sony can defeat Sony. By this time next year, the Wii should finally be living up to its hype, and pumping out a nice library of games as developers continue to jump onboard. For now, it's a gimmick. Next year, it should become a real platform. Tried Mario Party 8 out a few months ago (four humans, no computer opponents), and we had a good time. I didn't feel like it was necessarily much better or worse than any of the other Mario Party games I've played, but I *WILL* say that the "Boo Haunted Mansion" level is EXTRA ****ing random. Just be warned: If you want any semblance of order or skill, avoid that level. It was still fun...but in a what-the-****-is-happening?? sort of way. Which I imagine would wear off on repeated play (we only played that level once).
