Hello and welcome to my log for unboxing and reviewing tamagotchis (and perhaps other things if I can get my hands on stuff)
But I hope you find this to be very fun and educational!
Note: These are my own thoughts so please don't feel offended if my opinions differ from yours.
I'll see you guys tomorrow!
r package open and getting all the parts out (don't forget the lenses and head strap like I did!), constructing it using the guidelines, ensuring it's on right, downloading the Cardboard app on your Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5, or iPhone 6, and scanning the QR code below using the built-in QR code scanner, you're ready to play the base apps. I'd recommend the 360 degree YouTube channel. Then you can download what you want! Rating: ★★★☆☆
Part 3: The Experience
Seeing stuff through lenses is fum, and VR is fun. Albeit the fact that the NFC prevents me from doing anything, the experience is fun. Rating: ★★★★☆
Part 4: Overall
Overall, I'd rate it 8.5/10 for its entertainment factor.
Part 1: The Viewer Itself
The viewer is a colorful (or not-so-colorful, depending on if you buy it multi-colored or black) unit and has lenses that ensure your VR experience is complete. It is a very powerful rig that allows to do anything from explore the human brain to seeing what should be Inori Aizawa's best friend for gaming, Unity-chan perform live. Rating: ★★★★★

So I just restarted my v4.5 recently, in time for my log, and I decided, why not review it and help people out there who are considering about getting a v4.5?
My v4.5 has the red snakeskin shell, a yellow star antenna, and a Tamagotchi Gotchi Gear Deco Ratchi cover for it (the cover is kind of like the soft iPod cases, ughh sorry I suck at describing stuff! )
Anyway. On to the review.
Please be noted this is not to be confused as a guide, and everything here is my own opinion.
The v4.5 has a really awesome concept! It has tons of features, such as letting your Tama go to school & work, unlock passwords, codes, & earn souvenirs, and my favorite-MAIL! All of these features are jam-packed into a reasonable-sized Tama!
The games are awesome, but a bit too long for my taste. The concept of naming your Tama is so cute, I swear! The food section already has a variety of choices in stock, which is awesome. The post section is my favorite feature, as you get mail, fortunes, and letters.
Pros & Cons:
jam-packed with mini-games once you get to the adult stage and begin working
lots of codes & passwords you can use to get bonus items
amount of Gotchi Points earned though games; they don't give you too little for a long game
shell designs are great, size is great since it's suber portable
characters are cute
skill points affect your Tama's lifestyle
can connect with v1, v2, v3, v4, Ketai, Akai, & Plus
CONS-games are long
happy and hungry hearts drop fast-in my own experience
buttons are not very responsive-in my own opinion
Conclusion & Recommending:
I'd recommend it to people who are looking for a fun, feature-packed (gosh I've typed 'feature' a lot of times!) Tama, Also to those people who want a Tama that is not too easy yet not too diffiult. And of course, to those who are collectors (duh!).
This Tama is medium-maintenance, and there's always a PAUSE option if you feel overwhelmed.
Where To Find v4.5s:
There are quite a few new ones and a lot of used ones available on eBay which are a little pricey. But if you look well, you can probably find one at a reasonable price. There are Tamagotchis on online stores like Amazon as well.

I'm sure I forgot about/did not include some guides, reviews, and cheats, and I apologize for that. Overall, I hope you liked this review, I had to rewrite it again because some portions of it got lost due to my laptop glitch.
Thanks for reading! I hope I helped!
