Really don't like the Tama-Go

Recommended Posts

Im 21 and i just bought a tamago. yea the bigger it is could be unpractical, but it still fits in my purse and i could care less. although all i want is the tamagotchi i.d now ive been dreaming of a color screen tama since i was a kid, this one is still fun. the music star one is the worst in my opinion, i just like to take care of a tamagotchi who cares if it is forced to play music... but i got to turn over the plate it comes with and decorate my own, so now my tamagotchi is just me. i like that its bigger, more people will notice it and maybe go get one to. cheaply made, i think its made just like the others, :)

After finally seeing one in person, I wasn't too thrilled with the Tamago either. It is way too bulky, and it's not even in color. And you have to buy all the different characters to get different games. That would get costly very quickly. However, since you buy the different characters, you only need one device, and you can choose the shell color you prefer.

I am going to buy a Tama-Go even though I have heard that some features are not fantastic- I have a record- I collect them- and if I really don't like it- I will sell it on Trademe. However, I doubt that this is the case- I feel that the good outweighs the bad in this Tama.

Yes the screens can get scratched easily but this can be easily fixed. Buy a smart phone or nintendo DS cover and cut to size of the screen. But putting them in pouches also helps pervent them... such as a camera holder or cell phone pouch.

 

Another thing to mention about the "keychain part" It is NOT meant for you to carry it as you normally would. It is meant to hold the tamagotchi figures on the ball chain loop.... As many who have tried ended up dropping the tama-go. Not many people have picked up on this... As well as its a softer chain and not metal that really would have clawed the screen. If you really wanted to "keychain" it to something I would highly recommend a pouch again so it could dangle without getting scratched. Then put a keychain (If not included) on that and carry that instead....

I always carry my Tamas around in a pouch because I'm obsessive about keeping them looking brand new. Not one of my opened ones have a single scratch on them, except for the P1 and P2 that I had when I was 7 ^__^'

 

I keep them in this pouch in my handbag. I don't think a Tama-Go would fit in though. I might need a new one!

 

And thanks for the keychain explanation- I did think the new keychain design was a bit weird. Thanks for clearing that up :D

 

Well, I've ordered a white Tama-Go and it's meant to arrive late this week. Then maybe I'll change my mind about it.

Thats good news you ordered one! Actually, that pouch SHOULD fit it.... I don't own that one but with the music star size... Its three on top of each other. (But its not that bad since the back is curved.) If that one doesn't fit, Keep an eye out for a cheaper camera case or phone case. And if you wanted to.... You could use a sock. They fit perfectly..... Even though that is a bit weird.

 

Its weird people haven't picked up on the keychain part... The figures have loops on them. That way you can have them "tag along" Its up to those people to risk dropping them. If you still want a keychain part.... Get some ribbon and put it in both loops. (A thicker ribbon)

i have ALL the same opinions alicefly this tama go is just a reason to make the USA fell better for not having the tama colour/ID wait what WOOPS has england been forgotten AGAIN for the supposedly "revolutionary" technology (well the colour ones WERE a revolution ) i pooled out all my money on a hexagon !!! but it was worth it then i though "wow i bet the tama go would be WAAAYYYYY cheaper than the colour" then i was like " U CAN GET HEXAGONTCHIS FOR LESS THAN THAT" so this christmas *kicks the tama go * im going for the colour *colour decends with a heavenly light*

I'm glad you told me about the keychain- it sounds better now that I know there's a simple way to carry around all the figures :blink: So long as they don't knock together and scratch my Tama-Go :D

Even though the Tama-Go only comes with Two games, it brings back the simplicity of the v1. Which only had two games and you couldn't get more then those two games.

 

Yes I do hate how the plastic cover screen thingy does scratch easily but you can buy stuff to buff out the scratches, plus the characters aren't totally ugly! Maybe like one or two and the baby characters are the best. I don't really like the white and black blobs. Looks like it took no effort to create it.

 

Im glad you're getting it. Im sure your opinion will change when you buy one!

The other thing I knew you mentioned but I forgot to tell you about... You can "fast forward the travelling animations. Still some will show but they aren't as long as the full animations.

 

For the keychain part... You can make them stay in place better putting the loops into a smaller rubber band. But they don't dangle that much as long as they are hung on the back side of the Tama-Go ball chain.

I know it wasn't for filming purposes because there are some good quality videos filmed through the plastic cover.
Actually, Ra has made a video of his Tama-Go and said that he takes off the cover and faceplate for filming it! So I think, yes it was filming purposes. ;)

I can agree with the babies, I dont particularly like the little mushroom guys, but I guess theyre only that way for an hour XD

 

Personally, I was a bit disappointed with my Tama-Go at first. I really like how it looks with the cute faceplate I have and such, but gameplay-wise, after playing Music Star, it seemed a little lacking. Though I did think it was kind of neat it was more back to original-type play.

Though, when I finally got a Mametchi figure to go with it, I was very happy with what the figure had to offer. For one thing, i LOVE figures, so I would have wanted one like it even if it wasn't part of the Tama-Go game, and another, the games and toys you could get with it really upped my enjoyment. The new games were fun, the toys were super cute to watch my Tama play with them, and heck, it's a cute little mametchi! I thought switching it out or whatever was pretty fun. Like I was plugging in games to a handheld system. Maybe it's just the novelty of it that I like.

 

So, while I DO really wish the Tama-Go had some extra features like school/etc (never owned any of the V2-V5) so I could try that out, I'm overall pleased with it. I'm kind of a figure collector at heart, so to me the worth of the figures are more than just "buying extra games", as I just really love to look at and display figures I own XD For someone who is not interested in figures/models of characters, it might not be as exciting and just extra money blown, so I can understand disliking it.

Reasons why I dislike the tamago:

1. The plasticc screen cover comes off easily because once I was running and it just fell off. :angry:

2. There are only three games unless you buy an expensive figurine that my parent refuse to purchase for me.

3. No items in the shop for my poor tama to play with.

4. The characters seem too new and they look like plants! :P

5. No naming system. Yes naming your tama feels more personal.

6. No mailing system. One of the great joys of having a tamagotchi.

7. Only 3 colours for the shell.

8. Tamagotchi is too big and clunky, I prefer the little flat egg shape ones that fit in your pocket

9. The way your tama beeps! It seems faint and as if though they have a feather stuck in their throats when they call you.

10. No school or work, closest thing to work and school is going to the park. <_<

 

Sorry but I cant help but complain

 

but there are SOME good things about it.

1. when you buy one food item you can use it 3 times! :D

2. You can change the background!

3. You can train it to use the toilet!

4. It can connect with my music star

5. it grows quickly!

 

That's all B)

Well, yes, the tmgo is maybe not what we expected from BANDAI, but I can put it in a new way.

I remember hearing comments about the v1 that it had less originality,even that the designs were too simple.

So eventually, BANDAI intergrated more features to the v2, since they wanted to make everyone happy.

Over time, they intergrated more features,and then came the antenna.Some people liked it, some people didn't. at the end, the 'last'

version didn,t have it, but the v6 was not the most appreciated tamagotchi.And also,

IT is their first gray pixel tamagotchi, so maybe we should wait for a while, they will probably improve it, at the end.

I've been playing with my Tamago for a couple of weeks and my final verdict is simply 'it's not for me'.

 

I think the last straw was when it took about 5 days to die (well, leave), and had a mountain of poo next to it the whole time. There's no challenge in that at all!

 

I also disliked how it grew up so quickly. It changed too fast and I didn't even have time to get used to each character.

 

The shell feels cheap and brittle, the gameplay is minimal and the lifespan is short.

 

I gave it a go, but now I've gone back to the older versions.

Honestly...

The Tama-Go is cool, I think. Its not the best but yes the screen is scratched. I do like it though.

Other than it being Tama-Town themed, its a bit of a step backwards. There isn't much new and there are only 36 characters... ;(

But I do like the Tama-Go. I've attached to it. ^^;

And yes. I do believe the case is a bit cheap. Its very hollow and when I tap it I hear some cheap plastic-y sound. i like it though. :lol:
