Nintendo DS game calls you the N-word

Racist epithets in Animal Crossing: Wild World

Copies of Animal Crossing: Wild World for the Nintendo DS were sent out Tuesday to several video game publications, including GamePro, due to the fact that the game's unlockable content can be imported onto the new Animal Crossing: City Folk for the Wii. The extras, said to be "rare and favourite items" by the press release which accompanied the game, were unlocked before the copies were sent out to gaming press.

Both MTV Multiplayer and Kotaku confirm that in their copies of Animal Crossing: Wild World, a sheep named Baabara refers to you as a "N***a." For those who haven't played an Animal Crossing game, characters can be taught to greet you however you like.

In addition to the animal saying "How are you, N***a?" the sheep is also quoted as saying "I almost forgot about you, N***a" "So got any juicy gossip for me, N***a?" "Just thinking about it gets me all excited, N***a."

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
