So, a quite huge list of games coming before the end of the year... some quite nice ones too, but perhaps there is quite alot of "chaff" that only appeals to the kids..

Nintendo gamers have been left wanting more this year, with only a few big releases there doesn't seem to have been that "killer" game we've been used to wanting... Mario, Zelda, Metroid etc..

Anyway, Nintendo should be safe until 2009, but if things are still no better next year they'll probably start loosing even more ground on the other consoles when it comes to the "hardcore" market.

FIFA, DISASTER, Guitar Hero, Wii Music and Trauma Center are the only ones I'll be getting. Other than this list though, many of my purchases are going to be on WiiWare up until Christmas (Strong Bad 3-5, Tetris, Alien Crush etc).

Also, what's Nintendo's sense in releasing coloured wrist straps? currently has them for £14.99, whereas you can get normals ones for free on their webbysite (if you own an old Wii). Or, if you're sensible, you can just keep the ones you got at launch, and save your money for better things.
