Be heard…. Who has the best holiday lineup this year?

Nintendo Wii has really begun to hit its stride among hardcore gamers this year and with hits like Donkey Kong, Goldeneye, Kirby, Epic Mickey, Rock Band and Metroid all hitting close to or in the holiday season, I ask you guys this question; which console do you believe has the best holiday lineup and why?

It’s a tough question if you consider the likes of Halo Reach, Fable 3, Call of Duty, Sly Cooper Collection, Gran Turismo 5 and many other titles that are hitting store shelves as we speak…. But…. if you had to pick just one, which console wins this year?

World of Goo 2 possible

“A second World of Goo is a possibility, and something we would enjoy working on. A second World of Goo will need to feel like a perfect and appropriate continuation of the first game. No Red Bull Can levels or rapping Goo cutscenes, according to our official design doc.”

I don’t think this should be a “possibility,” I think it should be a definite. I loved World of Goo and really hope to see a sequel in the very near future. Make it happen 2-D Boy, make it happen.
