Another sub-par PlayStation 2 game has been reviewed: Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil. Floigan Bros. is next, with Mario Kart Super Circuit coming at the end of the month. I also see a PSOne game called Skydiving Extreme on the charts; the name is the extent of my knowledge, yet enough to intrigue me.

I've found that online polls rate customer anticipation for the Nintendo GameCube much higher than the Microsoft Xbox – yet advertising and word on the street seems to favor Xbox. I wonder which is a better indicator of sales this holiday season?

Also, a tip of the hat to the friendly folks at Enix and their PR firm, HighWater Group. I rate their web sites (yech) much lower than their service, which is what's really important.
