I activated him as soon as I got home. I got him through his needy stage. Man, does this guy poop a lot. And apparently they need baths as well now. Currently he is a ahiruku-tchi. He is a boy and he weighs 14 Pounds. It's been awhile since I raised a Tama and I must say I'm really enjoying it.

Last night right before bed he needed praise. I suppose he needed reassurance or something. I gladly gave it. And he just pooped as I was typing this. And sure enough he got hungry right afterward. Why? I never get hungry after I go. Is he crapping out vital nutrients as well as waste?

My uncle asked me if I'd killed or tortured him yet. I think he was mistaking Tamagotchi for the Sims. I don't torture or starve Tamas. I never have. But back when I had a computer that was able to play games I played the Sims mainly to find new ways to kill them off. I love Tamas. I'd never want to hurt one. I found Sims kind of annoying and stupid. They were fair game.
Before I got my TamaGos I found Grimlock, one of my old Tamas. He's green with a reptile scale pattern. I'm not sure if he works or not. I don't think he does. Even if he's broken I still love him. I wear him on a cord around my neck now. Close to my heart. Someday I'm going to get a battery and see if he still works.
I want to get my Tamago some new kinds of food, but the shop has been out since yesterday. He still has plenty of different snacks since he rarely gets snacks but all he has left in meals is pork and beans. He's got to be getting sick of those by now. Poor thing.

I took him to the park a few minutes ago. He looked like he was having fun. The shops are still empty. They need to hurry up and restock. I hate having to feed my Tama nothing but pork and beans. I wouldn't want to eat that crap once and certainly not over and over again. Poor Tama.
I just caught him getting ready to poop and made him get on the toilet. His training meter is now full. I wonder if this means he won't poop on the floor anymore.

He just dropped a Happiness heart so I gave him a corn dog for a snack. He's about out of snacks other than milk and the only food option he has is pork and beans and the store still doesn't have any more food in stock. I wonder if you have to go to TamaTown to get it to restock. If so then my poor Tama will be doomed to eat nothing but milk and pork and beans for the forseeable future what with TamaTown being down and all. But to my Tama's credit he hasn't complained about only having Pork And Beans for dinner so I guess he's fine with it. He deserves better though.

EDIT: I decided against Turning off my Tama. I can pause him when I get too busy to care for him. I enjoyed caring for him too much to stop. In addition I have put batteries in my green TamaGo as well. I'll be back later with an update.

I don't have the backs screwed on these guys' shells. I'm paranoid about screws stripping and being unable to remove dead batteries. Leaving the backs unscrewed is fine as long as I'm careful. I carried my green Tama in my pocket as I did some chores and the back didn't come loose.
As I was typing this my white Tama changed. He is now a Kilalatchi. Evolving seemed to have made him hungry as he dropped a hungry heart. Poor guy still has only Pork and Beans to eat. The shop still refuses to restock. I feel bad. I'm having Burger King for dinner and my poor white Tama has to eat nasty pork and beans. He seems cool with it though. Maybe he LIKES Pork and beans.

Man it's been a while since I updated this thing. I'm raising a totally different Tama now. A V5 with Space Trip design. I found it the day before yesterday and I bought some batteries for it today. I just popped one in so my Tama family are still infants. I'm trying to get them through the initial needy stage. So far they seem to be one mind sharing three bodies. They eat as one and they poop as one. They look different, but they don't seem to have different personalities. It's hard for me to reconcile having three Tamas on one device. I don't buy into the theory that they are aliens living in a plastic case. I think of them more realistically. The device isn't a Tama's home. The Device IS the Tama. A Tamagotchi is not an alien. It's an electronic creature and as such the egg device is as much a part of them as their pixels. I'm not sure how to address this particular Tama ( yes I talk to my Tamas ). I suppose I'll refer to them as you guys or them and things of that nature even though it feels wierd to do so. I suppose I'll get used to it. A Tamagotchi with multiple personality disorder.
They've eaten and played and pooped and now they're sleeping. I'm not sure if that means they're about to exit the needy stage and grow up a little or not. I guess I'll see soon.

My critters have gotten older and now they aren't so needy. I had to send them off on vacation for about an hour while I cooked supper. I do wonder if that vacation animation might make it drain batteries faster. It's a cute idea but I don't know what was wrong with a simple pause screen.
The games suck. They're easy when you just need to fill a happy heart, but quite a bit more difficult when you're trying to make money to buy things. The tea game is best for making money I suppose since it's easier to get far enough where you aren't getting only ten points a game. Niether game is fun. I actually enjoyed the shoot the bug game on the TamaGo. It was like an old school arcade game. But so far the games available are a chore. Maybe once I unlock the others they'll be more fun. It doesn't really matter in the long run. Tama games are just a means to an end. Making them happy and making cash to buy them stuff. I can put up with bad games if it makes my Tamas happy.

It was a busy day. Our satellite was messing up so we had to get the Dish network guy out here. While he was doing this thing I took all our dogs out for a walk to get them out of his way. My Tamas went too of course. We came across a dead possum. My german shepherd's ancient wolf instincts kicked in and she tried to nom the possum. But there was to be no possum nomming on my watch. The Tamas just watched, grateful that as electronic creatures they don't have the sometimes unpleasant instincts that biological creatures do. Sometimes I envy them for that. They'll never have to get up in the middle of a freezing winter night to go pee.
I spent a while playing the tea game and managed to get my Tamas a party horn and a tennis racket. They had fun with them but we are now broke and my thumbs are tired from playing the game. I need to get them some more food. I bought them sandwiches but they may be getting sick of those, bread and whatever the heck that other default food is. Salad? Macaroni and cheese? I just don't know.

I have discovered the wonderful world of V5 Cheats. My guys now have several rare items and all the money they could ever need. My pets are now spoiled rich kids.
These critters get up a bit too early for my liking though. I woke up early this morning and checked on them. I had to clean up a poop and feed them before I paused them and rolled over and went back to sleep.
Posted 16 May 2013 - 09:25 AM
I spent much of yesterday using cheats to improve the lives of my Tamas. They now have 99,999 points, most of the available items and 100% bonding. I suspect I have more money than I'll ever be able to spend because there isn't much left I don't have. My guys have everything they could possibly want now.

You're not really supposed to post in others' logs. I don't mind personally. I'm cool with it but technically it is against the rules. Just so you know: http://www.tamatalk....gsdiaries-only/
Most Toys R Us's don't have TamaGos anymore. I just got lucky. Really lucky. They were discontinued at the time I found mine. I'm thinking they found some in the storage room and just put them out to try to get rid of them. You can't find TamaGos in any stores here anymore. I was just lucky enough to walk into a Toys R Us that still kept discontinued merchandise on shelves. I wasn't lucky enough to get a discount though. I had to pay full price. It was worth it.

My Tamas spent most of yesterday on pause. I was kind of busy. I've had them up and around most of today though. I only paused them when I was cooking or cleaning.
I'm still trying to figure out the purpose of having multiple characters on the V5. I said earlier that it seemed the idea of families was added as an afterthought. But raising three of them is no different than raising a single one on another Tama. It's kind of pointless having three when they don't have individual personalities, don't have individual names, leave only one poop rather than three and basically act as one spirit split up and housed in three bodies. I don't view the digital creatures as independent from the plastic egg device. The egg device is part of the Tama. The Tama could no more exist without it than we could without our vital organs. To me the creature on the screen is merely a way to interface with the pet.
So what, then, is going on when you have multiple creatures on one Tama? With the V5 it seems like the multiple creatures share one mind. One spirit sharing three bodies. This is because you don't feed, clean up with or play with them independantly. One meal feeds all three. They only leave one poop despite there being three creatures. They all share the same happiness and hunger meters, They simply are not individuals. Despite being three bodies, they seem to share the same personality and the same spirit. I wonder if it would have been technically possible to make a Tama with several individual creatures, each with their own likes and dislikes, their own happiness and hunger meter and their own personality. It would be interesting but having such a device would probably be more trouble than it's worth. The V5 is probably the best way to handle multiples without making caring for them too difficult and time consuming. I doubt I'd want to care for a Tama that involved having to watch several different meters, feed several different meals and play several different games. But having multiple characters without making each an individual is kind of pointless. I can see why future Tamas stuck to one creature only.
