Self-contained Tamas or not?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. Haven't been on TamaTalk for a day and I feel like I missed out on a lot.... weird.

 

Anyway. I was wondering. Do you guys like self-contained Tamas or not? Do you prefer Tamas with add-ons you buy separately, like pierces and figures, or not?

 

I personally am fine with them, but I prefer self-contained Tamas.

 

Please chip in!

Well, being one of my favorite versions, I think the Tama-Go had good add-ons because they were cute figures with two games and a lot of items! :D But I don't like the P's piercings or the 4U, iD L, etc downloads :c

 

In other words, I prefer self-contained Tamagotchis with the exception of the Tama-Go :D

I love add on's as they are great to stop loosing interest in your Tama and give you something to lok forward to on your Tama, the best are the 4u downlaods as they have characters and more but they are hard to get yet they are not any less good. The P's are great in content too with both downloads and the pierces but I don't like the, being so girly still good though, the Tama-gos are nice but really inconvenient and annoying but still in itself cute and good I think 4us are by far the best in potential and content though.

I prefer tamas with add-ons rather than self-contained tamas because new content can be periodically added at any time which keeps the device new and fresh in the long run. Self-contained tamas are good of course and it's nice to get everything for the money you pay in one go and that's all, but I like to be able to customize my game environment as I see fit at any time and have new tidbits to fiddle with while they get released. Sure, it might be more expensive in the long run but it's a price I'm willing to pay for a system that sustains itself with remaining constantly "new and exciting" via software updates.

I prefer self contained tamas. I feel like it's better if you can access everything within the version without having to buy or download add-ons.

I prefer self-contained tamas with downloadable content. You have the option to just carry around your phone to get downloads whenever you want rather than either carrying around a bunch of figures to play whatever game you're in the mood for. I like tamagotchit because of how portable they are, but downloadable content does extend the replay value quite a bit.

I prefer self-contained tamas! Seriously, although I loved the iD L, it felt like I was buying half a tamagotchi because of the lack of games.

Since I don't go out much I don't really care if it's self contained or not because I don't have to worry about carrying figures, etc. I love the Tama-Go because I like the figurines a lot. The fact that they both add things to the tama and can be used as decor is awesome to me.

I'm a fan of self-contained ones myself. I really don't want to drag around figures/pierces when I take them anywhere (for fear of losing them). The originals had no add-ons, and that's what I'm used to. Downloadable things are fine.

Definitely self-contained Tamas, but I liked having TamaTown/being able to export my tamagotchi to a computer to get more $ and items--that was so much fun!

Self contained with downloads definetly, I love add ons but they are not really practical and too expensive (I love the TamaGo's figures, but they are a pain to carry), so I'd rather have everything through downloads. The iD is really fun with downloads, I love the idead of having some customization (backgrounds and accesories) and a huge menu of meals/snacks to give to your tamagotchi what you choose at will.

And being able to change the games is awesome, this way you never get bored of your tama since you can keep it always new :D

      Hi! I owned the old tamagotchis(since I was small) and after about 15 years I'm back to the Tamagotchi community!
       
      I've decided to get a P's (Aikatsu ver.) recently and is excited to collect more pierces.
       
      Just curious if anyone know where can I get used pierces for the higher priced pierces (eg. sanrio, disney, fairy change, royal change)?
      They're just too expensive for me to buy them new!
       
      I've tried tamagotchi trader group but no one seems to be selling those.

      Hey! I recently made a couple decisions. At first it was Plus Color > 4U.
      Then the Plus Color got too expensive so it was P's > iD L.
       
      I decided P's and got a blue. Now I have a lot of questions. They probably seem really stupid to those who are experienced.
       
      Anyways, my first couple are easy. What pierce will give me the most features? What pierce is best for beginners?
       
      Now, I have questions about patches. First of all, where do I access the actual patch(es) that I download? Second of all, I have a Samsung Galaxy (Ver. 3 I think) with infra red on it. I heard I could get the patch on my computer, send it to my tablet (via bluetooth I think) and then send that to my P's?
       
      My last question is fun. What case/covers do you recommend and what pierce is your favorite?
       
      Thanks so much!
      Oh and please don't comment if you don't own a P's and have at least some experience with it. You also don't have to answer all my questions. (I know I asked a lot, but please don't get frustrated. I'm quite experienced with my Connections, but I know 2% about color versions)
       
      Edit: I think I found where to download the patch(es)... is this it? http://mrblinky.net/tama/translations/

      I just won a lot that included a blue Memetchi Tama-go and a winking Memetchi figurine.
      I'm interested in buying more figurines. Should I buy 2 or 3 separately or buy a whole lot? Just wondering because I don't know if I'll use the whole lot or not.

      Title says it all. I guess I can elaborate a bit though.
       
      Ebay and Amazon both offer pierces at around $20, which I think is kinda crazy considering I got my tamagotchi p for only a little bit more than that, AND it was the Dream Coffret edition, so it was a tama + pierce. Hard to believe that a pierce alone costs over half of that, y'know ; A;
       
      So I was wondering if there are maybe some stores I don't know about that can offer these pierces at a more reasonable price. I live in the US so buying them retail is clearly not an option...
       
      If anything, some discussion/answers as to why pierces are so expensive now would be nice. My memory is not too crystal-clear, but I don't recall these pierces costing anything near $20 when the Tama P's first came out. Weren't they somewhere closer to half of that?
       
      Thanks in advance

      Hi! What's your opinion on the 4U if you have one? I want to know if it's worth getting. Thanks!!

      I was just wondering... do all of you guys care if a Tama is very big or small?
       
      Like is it a turn-off or something if the shell is big, like a v7/Tama-Go?
       
      I personally don't mind but I prefer the Connection sizes. I find the Nano a bit too small.
