Animal Crossing Countdown - T minus 11

Mark your calendars.

One of the best - and at the same time most vexing - things about the GameCube version of Animal Crossing was the holidays. You had to play your weeks around whatever was going on in the forest, sometimes burning vacation days or just straight-out playing hookie from work so you could get a special item at a certain time on a specific holiday.

Now, of course, those problems are a thing of the past because Animal Crossing : Wild World is for the Nintendo DS, and is completely portable. Now all you have to do is sneak out of whatever boring meeting you are in (tell them you need to go to the can) in order to make a timed appointment in the forest. The downside, though, is that everyone will think you have chronic diarrhea because there are a LOT more holidays and festivals in AC:WW. And trust me, you aren't going to want to miss "New Haircut Day".
