This is a poll for a game I really want Nintendo to make for the Switch to make up for Mario Kart Tour (which I hate a bunch, mostly for its heavy microtransactions). To differentiate from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I want this game to be another Double Dash game and to re-feature EVERY past driver (a la Super Smash Bros. Ultimate) that has been playable at some point in the series' near-30-year history (Petey Piranha, Funky Kong, Wiggler, R.O.B., Pac-Man, Mametchi, etc.)
I stumbled across this in a branch of TK Maxx (the UK version of TJ Maxx) today, and I couldn't resist picking it up;
It's an officially-licensed metal and enamel keychain, featuring a nostalgic element of the original toys that we enthusiasts sometimes bemoan ("Oh no, they only remember the Tamagotchi as a toy that poops and dies!"), albeit humourously framed. I'm pretty happy with this find because it was the only one that they had left and it had been reduced in price to £1.70! (A quick check online tells me that they originally retailed for £7.99, which, even though this is a really nice and surprisingly big keychain, I feel is a little high.)
These were made by the UK giftwares company Paladone. Their goods are sometimes sold in North America too, so this is just a quick heads-up to let anyone who might be interested know that these are out there, presumably now discounted after the pre-Christmas impulse-buy period for items like this has come and gone.
Interestingly, even though this is a British product, it doesn't use the angel death-screen from the original Western localised version of the toys, instead opting for the gravestone from the Japanese versions (though without Obaketchi). I'm sure that some people will swear blind that they remember it being this way originally, as a result. But it's still a nice-looking little piece of merchandise, and I certainly can't argue with the price!
i've had this line for a few generations, but i figured i might as well start logging it
i was very attached to the previous generation here, they are perfect, stunning
but i found out about Tamagyaotchi and its little baby dinosaur fangs and claws and i knew i had to find someone with its genes and try for it
so here we go
i'm not too sure about that green, but my last generation changed colors spontaneously multiple times upon evolving, so i'm not too worried about it
other than that, i'm really excited to see which genes he ends up with, since both sets are great really (and i can always try again if he doesn't end up with a Tamagyaotchi body)
either way, Shizukutchi is always cute, so i'll cherish the next hour as always
Week 1, log no. 1
Just received the tama on device, it was the magic green. When I started I got a boy tama, it was a Shizukutchi. He is adorable.
My Shizukutchi evolved into a Hoshipontchi. Used the app for the first time as well, it seems I got a hang of the catch game. But the restaurant game was mildly irritating on a iPhone 8+.
My Hoshipontchi and I got the cloud room from the app. I changed his room to the cloud room, It was nice looking as it was a prize item from the app. Then later on in the day he evolved into Hanbunkotchi. I consider him a fave tama stage of mine.
