Humiliate your pet with a costume, win Animal Crossing: City Folk

9:04 AM on 10.27.2008 // Nick Chester

With the November 16 release of Animal Crossing: City Folk right around the corner, fans of catching butterflies and decorating their homes are gearing up for the fun. How's Nintendo celebrating? By asking you to humiliate your pet on the Internet. 

Nintendo is giving fans the chance to become part of the exclusive "Welcome Waggin' Committee," of which all members will receive a copy of Animal Crossing: City Folk, a Wii Speak microphone, and access to "exclusive" information about the game. To win, you'll simply have to put your pet in a costume -- your dog can be ballerina, your cat can become Link, your hedgehog can like Mario -- and submit it at www.WelcomeWagginContest.com. (Note: The Web site doesn't currently seem to be live.)

50 photos will be chosen and posted online, so while not everyone can win, at least the rest of us can blow our lunch breaks "awwwing" and "ooohing" over pictures of dogs dressed like Blackula.

Nintendo News: Animal Crossing Costume Contest Gives Fans a Chance to Win Prizes, Exclusive Info

Fans of Nintendos Animal Crossing franchise are some of the most loyal in the world. To reward them for their devotion to these community-building games and to get players fired up for the Nov. 16 release of Animal Crossing: City Folk for Nintendos Wii console, Nintendo is hosting an outrageous animal costume contest.

Critter lovers can show their creativity by submitting the most original images of animals dressed in costumes or even as characters from the hit video game franchise Animal Crossing. The entrants of the top 50 photos in the Animal Crossing Welcome Waggin Costume Contest will win membership to the exclusive Welcome Waggin Committee. All committee members will receive a Wii video game system, a copy of Animal Crossing: City Folk, a Wii Speak microphone, access to exclusive information about the game and more.

Expanding on the popularity of the Animal Crossing series, Animal Crossing: City Folk lets every member of the household partake in the fun of a unique animal-filled town. Players use the simple controls of the wireless Wii Remote controller to customize their own characters and surroundings. And for the first time, players can take their adventure to the city, complete with shopping and theater excursions. Its also the first game to make use of the Wii Speak microphone, a new accessory that enables players to use voice chat over a broadband Internet connection. The Wii Speak microphone is sold separately.

Daily photo picks and details about the Animal Crossing Welcome Waggin Costume Contest will be posted at www.WelcomeWagginContest.com. Entries will be accepted Oct. 27 - Nov. 16. For more information about Animal Crossing: City Folk, please visit www.Animal-Crossing.com or contact:

So uh, my dream was interesting. Travel somewhere to get furniture, protests going on, police lock us behind a gate so we go round and blow up their car to escape. Now apocalypse time with city on fire and zombies and then I get a girlfriend.Quite varied!

I watched the movie Flight with Denzel Washington last night. It got especially good once John Goodman appeared and it turned into a sort of fun, surrealistic drug comedy. But then the ending undid every bit of enjoyment it gave me up to that point.

Putting together the Valentines Day edition of Gaming's Beautiful People and finding it surprisingly hard - ooer, missus etc - to find a male couple to put in the list. Any suggestions? All I can seem to find is the guards from Undertale.

The story in Destiny seem kind of crummy. I feel like I'm missing something here. It doesn't really click. Taken King however seems pretty good though.

Quick note for Soul Sacrifice Delta: Sony designed it weirdly, and so while most of the updates should come in by downloading the newest update, other stuff you might not get unless you hit this on the main menu. Don't miss out!

Found this image of myself on Ted Cruz's computer, disgraceful! Further proof he isn't natural born, no true American would have a disgusting image like this! (Censored by some idiot's ugly face)

Love, Lost, Live, Lost (2014) - Yesterday was me and my girlfriend's 16th year anniversary together, so I decided to share this song. It deals with being in love, losing that person, moving on, and learning to love again. It's 9 minutes long, too :P

I have done my part. Thank you Niero. Question: Does blocking someone also remove their front-page articles too?

So I'm hearing the UN called Japan in to discus "Banning the sale of video games or cartoons involving sexual violence against women " Which by Anita's standards = any Violence able to be done. Japan sent a 40 page long NO back to the UN in reply.

Just got home from Deadpool and ... it's not good. I liked the jabs at Green Lantern and the previous movie Deadpool, but that was about it. The rest was just painfully forced dick jokes. Wife fell asleep.
