As you may have read in reading some of my previous posts, I have recently returned to Tama Talk with a new found love for my little Gotchi Pals. Since I have left the side, I have grown mature, cynical, and somewhat "over Tamagotchis", but I realised I was killing my inner child which, as I understand it, everyone should have. I will continue to maintain my maturity but, hey, everyone's allowed to have some fun every now and then, am I right?
Nevertheless, following my sudden return to Tamagotchis, I purchased five virtual pets from the "online mall", eBay, each of which was quite inexpensive and the first two to arrive were my new paint-splattered Kuchipatchi Tamagotchi Familitchi (V5) and my Aquapalz Dolphin. I have had both of these before, but the former was in a different shell design, and the latter was the "Tropical Fish" release.
The Aquapalz toy isn't produced by BanDai and isn't a Tamagotchi in the official sense of the word, but is a virtual pet and a game that I, for some reason, greatly enjoy. It is easy to use, it has a backlit screen, and the animations are simply adorable in every way. My tropical fish version, which I bought in the Times Square Toys 'R Us in 2008, does not have batteries, but I'm looking forward to using my new Dolphin edition.
Anyway, about half an hour ago, I unboxed my Version 5, but intricately opened the packaging in such a fashion that it could be used to store my Tama while it has fallen into disuse by cutting the sealed edges off but leaving a small part of the frame intact so as to act as a 'hinge' which would allow me to flap the packaging open and closed.
Excitedly, I un-tabbed the little blue egg, and a bleep sounded with the "WAIT" screen. I waited as instructed and, soon after, I was asked to set the time and carry out the other general procedures associated with un-tabbing/resetting a Tamagotchi.
Three eggs appeared, and after a minute, all three hatched at 7:13pm. My Mimifuwatchi arrived first, my Omututchi was second to appear, and my Futabatchi hatched in third place. I decided to name them Carl, Anna, and Oscar, respectively, with Carl and Oscar boys, and Anna a girl. I chose the family name "Storm", after spending about five minutes pondering. It was a sudden burst of inspiration, as I walked past my sister's laptop which had the brand name "Zoostorm" on the lid. The name fitted perfectly!
I quickly fed the three five meals and snacks in order to fill their hearts, and played the TV Surfing game with Carl - we got to the seventh round before I missed the channel, and we were given a "Good!" rating. Nice job, Carl!
I've cured their illness once with one dose of medicine, and have cleaned one "poop" whilst managing to "potty train" them on two occasions. I used Binary's codes (thanks, Binary!) to acquire a prime rib, which they've had a few times, along with a French loaf and some fried rice.
The little Storms are having a nap at the moment, so be quiet or you'll wake them! I've decided to do a status update...
Bonds Percentage: 0%
Family Type: Blended
Family Name: Storm
Gotchi Points: 50GP
Family Members: Mimifuwatchi (Son, Carl), Omututchi (Daughter, Anna), Futabatchi (Son, Oscar)
Well, they have wakened! I'll update soon, and hopefully with photos - once my camera decides to work!
I'll keep you posted!
