  1. I think everyone I know is aware of my Tamagotchi collection. I certainly don't hide them, and anyone that has ever commented on them in public has been nice. Mostly curious or excited to reminisce. I get a lot of comments about them at work -- coworkers asking if I got any new ones, or how the one I'm currently running is doing, etc. My fiance is super supportive of my hobby. He even got me my first color Tamagotchi when he saw how excited I was about it. Everyone has their own thing -- my fiance has a massive trading card game collection and he excitedly tells me about new cards as much as I excitedly tell him about my various Tamagotchi characters. I think my family is pretty awesome about them. I definitely had my mom "Tama-sit" back in the day so she knows all about them. In fact, I accidentally left one of my P's at my parents house once this year, and she even managed to take excellent care of a Japanese-language Tama for me for a couple of days because she knew I'd feel bad about leaving it there. That's some top-quality Tamagotchi collection support right there! She was very glad to give it back to me though. Not really her thing

    Halloween group hatch!

    Ooh, I think I'll probably join this one! I love Halloween. I'll have to think about which one I want to run. Possibly my Angel. *Edited because I just realized I have all the Halloween stuff downloaded on my iDL... Hmm. That would be a fun option too.
  3. I never got a Tama-Go when they first came out because when I saw them in the store, I thought the size was absurd. Then, last September I broke down and ordered one for cheap on Amazon. I thought the park was cute. I liked the Long Jump game. I liked how you got to see the whole little family for a while when they got married. I absolutely loved it! For about three weeks. Then my fiance got me an iDL for my birthday and the poor Tama-Go has been sitting on a bookshelf ever since. I bought figures for it, and have never even used them. Thinking about this makes me want to start up the Tama-Go while I'm on vacation this week. I don't like carrying the giant thing around with me. That's the number one reason that I never use it. Carrying around an iDL or P's on a daily basis is bad enough. If I added the Tama-Go to the mix, I'd need a purse just for my Tamagotchis! Long story short, I'd suggest the iDL or P's instead if you can afford it. I prefer the iDL, of those two. But obviously if I never got an iDL or P's, I'd probably still be playing with the Tama-Go!

    Long-Lived Oldies Hatch

    Wow, that's awesome! Inara's battery died a long time ago and I never put a replacement in. I think I hatched her too quickly after Lorne died. I missed him and it was weird having her. Now I kind of feel bad for not replacing her battery...

    idL Toddler Stage

    I was wondering if it would work for that too! I figured it would. Thanks for confirming it!

    idL Toddler Stage

    That's exactly what I did as well -- so it must not be based on care misses. I've taken perfect care, mediocre care, and abysmal care and still consistently get Paletchi every time I have a female. I will definitely be trying the connecting to save and then downloading next time until I get Rolutchi. I hate "cheating" the system, but I would really like to progress! That being said, I'll probably get boy babies the next five generations

    idL Toddler Stage

    That is brilliant! I will have to try that next time. I have a couple of P's I could use for connecting with. Thanks!

    Tamagotchi angel problems

    I don't think it's weird at all. I'm running my Angel right now too, and since Sunday I've only noticed two discipline times.

    idL Toddler Stage

    This is what I figured, since this time I treated the poor little Momoirotchi horribly. I always give the babies the best care because I make sure to hatch when I have at least an hour free to play. So I thought this time I'd ignore the poor little thing and give care misses galore to see what happened. Didn't change a thing. Oh well. It's just that it's getting so frustrating. On one hand I like part of it being random, but I don't like it when random doesn't let me get to a certain branch of adult characters at all
  10. Ok, so this might be more venting than a real cry for help, but I do have a specific question, so I'll get that out there first: Is there any way at all to influence which toddler you will get on the idL, or is it completely random? Because every single time I've gotten a female (which is insanely rare for me, I might add) I get Paletchi. With out ever getting Rolutchi, there are adult characters that I will never get. I've been playing with my idL for 9 months. You'd think in that time, that I'd have gotten Rolutchi at least once, even assuming that it's random. I get all excited on those rare occasions when a little girl is hatched and only to have my excitement dashed when she becomes Paletchi yet again. I've never even had Kingyobotchi either, to be fair, but at least I could get those adult characters through the Paletchi line too. I'm to the point where I don't even like Paletchi anymore, which is sad because I thought she was so cute when I first got my idL. I keep wanting to reset when she shows up, but I only have the one idL and I have worked so hard at getting all of the other characters that I don't want to lose all that work.

    Tips on opening tama packaging?

    For the plastic packaging, I use a pocket knife and cut very carefully along either a side seam or bottom seam, and just enough so I can sneak my fingers in to slide things out.
  12. Perhaps provide a little more information if you want help. What version are you playing? What character did you end up with? Are you using any growth chart to figure out which adult you might end up with?
  13. Wow, it's less than two weeks now!! I can barely believe it since I've been waiting for this game for years! I have the bundle pre-ordered and I can't wait to have a new 3DS that has the Animal Crossing design. I should probably order one of those see-through shells for that too. I was worried it might rub on the paint and ruin the design, though. I want to just keep it in a neoprene pouch, but I can't seem to find one that will work with a 3DS XL. I'm really looking forward to seeing the new characters. I hope there's a deer character in my town right away.

    Long-Lived Oldies Hatch

    Inara is still around but I had to pause her for two days while I did inventory at work. She is 20.
  15. After many years of playing Wild World, the only things I am missing are one fossil (plesiosaur skull which I've been trying to dig up for about two years now to finish my collection. Sheesh! Would have thought the T-Rex skull was more rare than the plesiosaur one!) and I don't have KK Slider's pic yet. I've run out of room to put villager's pictures in my house. lol. I suppose I could create new characters to use for storage, but it seems silly to store pictures. But I'm working on getting Purrl's pic right now anyway cause she's just so cute. I've also decided to let every villager (except Gaston and Lucky) move out when they decide to in the next month because I'm hoping to see villagers I've never seen before. I was very tempted to just start over with a new town, but my Wild World town has years of work into it including intricate paths made out of patterns, and a couple villagers that I won't let leave Still 33 days away from the North American release of New Leaf. I've switched my pre-order over to the New Leaf XL bundle. I've been planning on switching to an XL anyway, and the design of the Animal Crossing one is so cute!
