  1. Got Gejitchi on my Morino! Man, I love all the characters on this thing. I managed to clean the speaker off a little more so it's loud enough to hear attacks coming, too!

  2. Man it's been just over a year since I truly got into Tamas and other V-pets, and it's been great. I'm never without one now, and there's so much I still have yet to try! Thanks to everyone here for being super kind and welcoming to this hobby. You've all been incredibly helpful and cool! :D

      happy tamanniversary duckplantman

  3. Itchin' to run my Osu/Mesu again...

  4. In my habit of revisiting things from my childhood, I have now also gotten into Dragon Dice. Oh man, such a fun game with so many dorky aspects.

  5. Well, I pulled my Meets out of my pocket and it was back on the clock set... looks like it somehow hard reset itself and I'm back to square one. =/ Bummer too, as  I had just bred a rightous duck-vampire with a wave pompadour. XD

      I've seen a thread on the forums reporting on this same problem. :( My Meets will be arriving soon, so it's a bit disappointing to hear multiple reports of this issue...

    2. Verklighet

      Same here. :(

      Hopefully the March issued ones will not suffer from that issue.

      Eh, if it doesn't happen TOO often it won't bother me. :D

  6. I totally didn't know you could get twins on the Meets, but I did!

      Super great. My favorite color tama, but that said, I haven't unlocked all the locations yet, nor have I gotten past gen 2. For some reason, it just feels more 'alive' to me.

      I might get the Meets and a Princess Spacey Ver. iD L and make a few JJBA logs involving them o:

      it sounds so exciting. i've luckily found my tamagotchis online to buy for a great price and will hopefully get them by christmas :)

  7. Got my meets! Pics up on the log. Had to stop mid-log to run to the store with my wife to buy lights for our Christmas tree, though. XD

    1. KidRetro64

      KidRetro64

      Yess! I can tell you I’m getting a purple magical version! I might do a log too!

  8. Just dawned on me that I've been back into tamas for just about a year now... man, I'm so happy I stumbled across a mini at a gamestop!

  9. Booting up the Uratama again... hopefully I don't get just Mame family this time. XD

  10. Starlink's pretty cool. Not sure if the toy ships are worth it, but they look great at least!

  11. Game season begins... passing up Soul Calibur VI for Starlink, though... we'll see how that goes.

      Ha ha, I recently learned serious gaming people get a little stressed over the holidays thinking of what to buy. Kinda funny that "near Halloween" immediately becomes "the Holidays" but I suppose it doesn't help I've been singing Christmas carols, snort.

    2. Hoky

      Hoky

      haha, it snowed her in MN on Sunday, and someone was blasting Christmas carols in the car behind me... man, I'm good on no Christmas stuff until after Thanksgiving. XD

      And yeah, Oct-Nov is always game season. I might still get Soul Calibur since I sold a bunch of stuff to get Starlink, but Starlink's really fun so maybe I'll just play that until Red Dead Redemption II comes out.

    3. Knighttchi's Ballad

      Knighttchi's Ballad

      We got a few sparing flakes of snow today! I'd prefer somebody blasting Christmas carols over somebody blasting rap music any day :^) My family only really uses the radio to hear Christmas carols, anyway. Using your logic, it is perfectly acceptable for the Christmasy-ness to start now since we Canadians get Thanksgiving in October XD

  12. Got my Galaxy P2 and Red Glitter P1! They're great!

  13. Looks like someone made a Dinkie Dino emulator for Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=br.com.dinostalgia

      I was checking that out today since I took over my father's tablet and was scouting out Vpet apps. In the reviews for that one somebody said it was copyright infringement, but I doubt a approx. 20 year old company is going to rise out of the grave and take it down XD

    2. Hoky

      Hoky

      ha, yeah. That always makes me laugh when I think about emulating old games, too. What am I gonna do, go out and buy a copy of Illusion of Gaia and a Super Nintendo? There's no way the original makers are getting any money from that since it's all grey-market reselling anyhow!

  14. Oh cool, looks like my GigPet AR T-Rex arrives today!

    1. Penguin-keeper

      Penguin-keeper

      I'm looking forward to hearing your verdict on this. :D

    2. Hoky

      I'll put some stuff on my log for sure at some point. The animations are really good, and overall it's pretty fun. The sleep function is weird though, as it doesn't seem to have a set sleep schedule. The directions are kinda vague. That said, it'd be cool if tamagotchis did a more retro style like this with better animation. No reason the current color ones should have herky-jerky 2-frame stuff!!

    3. Hoky

      Hoky

      Sound's cool too, as it's more little roars and booms that beeps. An interesting change of pace.

       

  15. Got a Mushiking virtual pet! They're pretty simple but pretty fun, and the animations are really cool for a basic virtual pet.

    1. Eggiweg

      Eggiweg

      Nice, that one's got such a cool shell.

    2. Hoky

      Hoky

      Yeah, I've got a brown stag shell. I wish I could find a dynastid (or whatever the monohorn one is) for cheap, but they seem to be pretty pricey. I lucked out and found mine on ebay for $10!!

  16. Welp, I had 2 of the new P1/P2 tamas in my hands, but Gamestop couldn't sell 'em to me because of the street date. At least they're holding them for me until the date hits now! :D

      Berryitchi

      Aw, we don't have Gamestop in the UK... *cries* The best I've got is The Entertainer selling mini's. xP

    3. Hoky

      Hoky

      From what the gamestop guys were saying it sounds like they're going to be getting a fair amount, so worst case scenario you get some off of ebay. Importing is a giant pain, tho. I get that. ><

  17. Anyone have any tips on how to clean out the screen on an idL? Finally booting up my 15th anniversary for the first time, and it was... uh... very used before I got it. XD

      Word. Maybe I'll by a normal idL to try that on before I gut my 15th anniversary. Thankfully it's pretty easy to ignore when I'm playing.

    3. KidRetro64

      KidRetro64

      Well, get a cloth and clean it? Sorry I am not very sure.

    4. Hoky

      Hoky

      lol, yeah I did that, but some of it is between the LCD and the plastic pane.

  18. My buddy found me a random V2 at a garage sale! Some dead pixel lines on the edges, but it works great beyond that!

      I'm unsure about how common it is, but I have one just like it! :D

    3. Hoky

      Hoky

      The white one with colored loops. I have a pic on my log. That's a pretty common one, right?

      I'm jeeeeeeeealous.

  19. Buckled and preordered a Trex Gigapet AR. I mean... they cheap. Why not?

    1. Eggiweg

      Eggiweg

      Pls do a log! ^^

    2. Hoky

      Hoky

      Oh yeah, I'll throw it in the one I have. No clue when I'll get it tho.

       

  20. Started up my Morino, but it's so quiet so I keep missing it getting stomped on... anyone have any tricks to make a tama louder/tell if a speaker is shot?

    2. Berryitchi

      Berryitchi

      Or a microphone. xD Sorry.

    3. Knighttchi's Ballad

      Knighttchi's Ballad

      I've seen people put phones in cups to make them sound louder. Perhaps that will work for your morino. Tamas usually sound louder without the back cover, but on the vintages that isn't feasible.

    4. Hoky

      Hoky

      True. I thought I saw a post on here back in the day that had advice for how to clean and tune up the speakers... I might just get a morino because this one is SO QUIET.

  21. Man, I'm really interested to get more info on the Tamagotchi Meets. I made a post for rumors/news, but it's gotta get approved. I SWEAR IT'S LEGIT! XD

      Well seeing as it connects to an app, its really giving me hope that we might get an english patch hack. tbh that's what I'm really excited about, and im hoping it can be done uwu

    3. Jhud

      Jhud

      Since it it is said to connect with the stations, I have my doubts that we will be able to get anything on the app, I think the app will only be a virtual meeting place, sadly.

    4. Hoky

      Hoky

      Makes sense. Looks like my post got scooped too even though I posted it pretty early in the day. Oh well. XD

       

  22. My wife spent all day in the hospital yesterday for an appendectomy (she's on them mend now :) ) and I broke my toe at midnight last night. It's not even noon and already this is not my favorite birthday. XD

    1. Berryitchi

      Berryitchi

      Wow, congrats, you mighta just broken a record there. xD Jk. Well, happy (ish?) birthday and I hope both of you get better soon. xP

    2. Hoky

      Hoky

      We get to hang out alone all day and don't have to go out at all, so that's usually a great day for us. XD

      Thanks!

    3. Berryitchi

      Berryitchi

      Okay... xD Well, happy birthday anyway. xP

  23. Man, Toys R' Us closing was rough on me. It's been an anniversary tradition to go there with my wife every year. At least I was able to go one last time since my anniversary was last monday. C'est la vie.

      At least international Toys R' Us will still be open, if you ever travel to a country where it's still open you can visit it there!

      I will miss toys r us, there the only place I could find lol surprise balls recently, last time I went the place was empty... :(

      Looks like their still in Canada but I know I would be sad too if they left.

       

      @Breadcrumbs Have you tried Walmart? The ones in Canada have them.

  24. Work's been bananas, but I ran my Mothra for the first time! It's great. :D Also starting up 2 Digimon Pendulum 20th's this weekend...

  25. I'd totally play Skyrim on a Tamagotchi XD - https://i.imgur.com/KpO9mzF.jpg
