tama log with me, abc!

Recommended Posts

hi everyone! i'm angus barnaby c, preference for the b; ABC! rn im running a few tamas and i was gonna try to log them because its always super fun! not to mention i'm wanting to make a new purchase and i need to decide what kind to get. probably a v2 or v3, hehe. v3s are my favorite but im not sure! or maybe a meets or a new on. who knows!!

let's meet the babies!

rsz_1image0.png

i turned on my v2 last night and i has a baby boy named cosmo already running, he's gen 3! i'm super proud of him and myself? i don't usually get super far in generations, so it was a surprise to see it!

in the middle we have my v3, maya! shes all grown up and ready to rock and roll. i think she can get married tomorrow. she's just a first generation, i started her a few months ago but she's back in action now. we was running alongside my entama who i named ryu (ace attorney is so fun) but i hit a slump n had to put em both aside. im planning on remodelling the entama though, and i can't wait to show that off!

finally we have my magic on! memetchi, first gen of course! shes a sweetheart, we're going to get her married to kikitchi today! ;)

 

ok anyways i just wanted to kick this off and get it started!! ill add more at the end of the day, when they've gone to bed and i have more pictures! im thinking about ordering rechargeable batteries and i have the pacman nano coming in the mail, i'm not big on nanos honestly, but went ahead n ordered it when i got my hair dye... it should be here the first n my dyes supposed to come tomorrow... im so pumped! 

cya then!!

V3s are my favorite too! Maybe try a Keitai or the Akai - they have very similar features to the V3 but with fun differences.

oohh... i already won the bidding on the v3 i had an eye on, but i might snag a ketai while ive been getting stuff... i also bought a dinkie dino which i'll be adding to this log too!! ❤️

i also think i saw another cherry v3? or two even on ebay? you might want to keep an eye out, i cant remember when they went down but i remember being disappointed that i already had the shell because they were pretty good prices imo. might be bidding tho.

good evening everyone! let me tell you how my day went!

so i woke up this morning and i didn't realize that it was kikitchi's birthday!! and when my on sang to me i was so startled i had just woke up i had no idea what was happening omg but happy bday kikitchi!! i played a lot on the app with memetchi yesterday so i transferred it all today, she has a cute hat!! kikitchi was STUPID hard to find at the park all day today though... i kept going. and going. and going. he was playing hard to get.... but i got him once early in the morning and then twice in the evening! but you can hear about those when they come around hehe

rsz_2image0.pngrsz_1image1.png

maya didn't have a lot happening today! but she did blow me a kiss when i went to take my medicine this morning, how sweet! tomorrow she'll be old enough to marry iirc, so i guess she's getting ahead of the game, haha.

rsz_image2.pngrsz_image3.png

cosmo grew up into a lil onion head today around lunch! i can't remember half the tama names off the top of my head but ❤️ im so excited... we played a lot of jump! and im... not great at v2 heading but thats ok! we played good today and had fun. im trying to get out of my habit of only using snacks and making my tamas overweight, sometimes im too tired to play a game but i might as well keep up with it while i can!! 

rsz_image4.png

it was around this time that i started making purchases on ebay... i had been combing all morning, but no bids were placed yet. aha!! well, guess what? i bought the bubbly blue v3, and then i got a dinkie dino. i figured that's all i'd do for the day, but i got on facebook just a little bit ago and someone was selling a hearts v2 so i got that too... i have 3 vpets in the mail and im so happy ❤️❤️❤️

anyways! back on topic. cosmo and maya were a lil dull today, but memetchi had a lot happen! eventually she went to the part and mametchi proposed! i already had a ring for kikitchi so i was trying to build their relationship more and refused, but then i came back and kikitchi proposed???!!! we said yes, haha!

rsz_image5.pngrsz_image6.pngrsz_image8.png

rsz_image7.png

had a baby that i named nugget! she's not the cutest just yet haha, but that's ok. lil banana head... ❤️ i love her.

rsz_image9.png

and here's everyone asleep! well. except for maya. they all sleep an hour apart but i never really have to worry about her. and those are the bracelets i did today! i finished one and just started the other. i wanted to show them off cuz that's all i did today, haha. listen to half life videos (freeman's mind), make bracelets, and care for tamas...

with that, i can't wait to check on the babies tomorrow and update everyone! aaaaaand dye my hair :D i will be sure to share how that goes. ok!! cya tmrw ❤️

 

EDIT : i removed the pictures for now because they were. not the ones i included? they were starting to get silly and weird. ill get something else figured out. sorry!
EDIT 2 : ok i added them back and hopefully they stay put this time!! ❤️

I've seen them too, but sadly they're usually North American sellers that don't want to ship internationally :( One day I'll find it though! For now, I'm on a tama-buying ban until further notice...

also, cool hair color!

Will you be logging it? :)

I like the Dinkie pets a lot - I feel that they're something that's absolutely worth having in one's collection. :) I have the penguin one, myself.

There are! Though, for the most part, they all play pretty similarly.

That I know of, there's Dinkie Dino/RakuRaku Dinokun, Dinkie Penguin/Yuki Pengin, Dinkie Alien/Space Creature/Tako Seijin, and the rare 4-in-1 and 8-in-1 Dinkies that are more limited than the others (as I understand it, each included creature only has one growth-path, as opposed to the three of standard Dinkie pets).

The virtual plant HanaHana Mi, the virtual kid RikouRikou Chan/Smarty Time, and the rare dating-themed virtual "pet" Rikou no Koibito, are also related, but as far as I know they don't play the same as the other Dinkies.

so it's not the end of the night yet but im getting ready to stream with some friends so i'm going to go ahead and get the bulk of today's activities done! most of the exciting stuff for today's already happened anyways. so!!!

this morning i was greeted first thing by miss banana slice herself, nugget. so cute... every time i see her i think about making banana bread!

image0.jpg

then cosmo woke up and we spent some time together with items

image1.jpgimage2.jpgimage3.jpg

and last but not least was maya! she's always a bit late, but thats ok hehe.

image4.jpgimage5.jpg

today was a really sleepy day, and was going by super slow since i was waiting for my hair dye. i laid down for a nap but guess who stopped by?

image6.jpg

aaaaa!!! i was so happy... ❤️ she brought over a sweet little pipotchi! i don't know what im going to name their son... i guess i have the day to figure it out.

image7.jpgimage8.png

then i got my hair dye an hour or so later? i went ahead and did it, but it didn't turn out. my hair wasnt light enough; i can't bleach it myself, i don't trust myself to, and im too high risk alongside most of my family to go out to a salon, so oh well. my hair IS kind of grey now though, especially in the light. its just still especially blond. we tried!

with my hair dye came my pacman nano though! now, i've never been big on tamagotchi nanos, theyre just... not my thing. but i have a soft spot for pacman and i needed the extra push on the purchase for it to say it would ship. so i went for it! and ohh my god i am so excited i did, i feel so soft for the little guy? between the music and the little games and just having another tamagotchi in my collection... and my first not-color tama fresh out of a box? the buttons feel so nice and theyre not the hard plastic like my m!xes and on, im just!! in love with him, genuinely!!

image9.jpgimage0.jpg

AND FINALLY!!!!!! 

banana head over here grew up for the day a little bit ago! while i was like. in the middle of getting this ready gsdflkg;dsh

image1.jpgimage0.jpg

ohh i love nugget so much. shes so cute! all of these guys are adorable.

theres probably not a lot left to say for the night but i will be posting a goodnight photo for sure with the group. i love to do that... any ideas for maya's son i'll gladly take! or i might do something half life related... i think i said to my friends i was going to try to name one 'barny' sometime? because barney is too long, and, well, barn is *my* nickname!!

but we had a really good day today these guys and i. i can't wait for our new friends coming in next week!!

There are multiple alien virtual pets out there! :D This list from Tamenagerie shows just a few. The excellent Super Gyaoppi 9 in 1 (and its 8-in-1 and 10-in-1 variants, which were sold under different names, in different shells) also features an alien as one of the options. If I had to recommend just one, it would be the Super Gyaoppi, because it offers so much.

hey everyone! sorry it took me so long to get back to it, i had a few bad days for my brain and so it was a lil rough

so nugget!! she grew up shes SO cute and we got to food town and im so happy about it :) we're probably marrying mametchi because we interacted with him the most for a while. 

image0.jpgimage1.jpgimage2.jpg

cosmo evolved into kuchipatchi! very proud of myself... im not great at getting good characters and i know hes not GREAT hes above avg but dfshgkl !!!!! ee so excited

image3.jpg

the pacman tamagotchi i have accidentally reset i think five times now? i... really like pressing the buttons. the sounds have been very good for me the past few days with how ive been feeling? makes me feel better, but. ill do it absentmindedly and so i end up resetting on accident. but i got mimitchi!... (i reset it again a few hours after she evolved. ugh!! its ok though.)

image4.jpg

finally; maya finally left! she's been with her son for like 3 days. are they usually around that long? golly. well! i named him mitch. i was looking for a half life name and i got it; mitch, for mitchell, from hunt down the freeman, a half life fangame thats really bad and im ashamed to say im a genuine fan of. but thats a me problem, ahehe.

image5.jpgimage0.jpg

 

other than that, i got my dinkie and my second v2 today! ... the dinkie isnt working. i dont know if its a battery problem or if im putting them in wrong or what but im going to be testing it in the morning. it ended up upsetting me so much i couldnt really start the second v2 though, so that one is just laying around and waiting now. i'll definitely be starting it tomorrow though and adding it to the log. if i can get the dinkie up i'll probably put the on aside for a bit, or maybe the v3. 

anyway, i love yall! ty for ur patience ❤️

i appreciate that... i think im going to turn off my v3 when it grows up, because 5 tamas is a lot to run, even if ones a nano. i have my beach v2 paused right now because it's an adult, and when my heart one grows up (which i got last night and im so excited to show off when i have more pictures!) ill have them together ❤️ so yeah.

      Hi I’m going to restart doing a log after not being here for a year. Anyhoo, I still have the same Tamagotchi white color on :). I’ll update later
    • By iTamannadi
      Hello everyone and welcome to my log! 
      I would like to start this log by saying happy new year to all of you and wish you all the best in 2021. I'm sure last year was rough and we all struggled during the unexpected pandemic so please stay strong and safe because clearly the fight is not over, and I hope that this year is going to be the end of it and a beginning for all good things.  
      As you can see from the title that I'm going to log here about my Magical Witch and the Devilgotchi which I am so excited about and for some reason worried at the same time! I will be logging while I'm exploring these two fascinating toys and yes it took me SO long playing with them for what is going on in world, but the time has finally come and I hope you guys will enjoy this post. 
      So today is the day that I finally decided to put some batteries into my new evil babies and the excitement I felt when I turned them on! 
      Starting with the Devilgotchi:
      when I removed the tab I immediately saw to what appears to be  like a smoke that lasted for a few seconds until the bat showed up as you can see below:

      the bat just kept flying and flashing for about 2-3 minutes and then it evolved to Deviltchi:

      a new Devil is born, without really realizing the consequences of raising a devil has just begun! 😈
      I took sometime figuring out the menu and of course fed him and tried to fill his both Hunger and Happy meter. Right after that I played the 'Catch' game, all you have to do is throw a star for your devil to catch it. You need to collect 4 stars in each round to win. As far as I know the game doesn't end unless you press C or lose but I'm not sure about that. 
       
      I actually spent good amount of time playing the game until... he.. slept during one of the rounds and made a very evil sound, not gonna lie I was caught off guard when I saw him sleeping and then suddenly he started smiling while the screen was inverting. Took me a while when I realized that this is him being mischievous and he wouldn't let me continue playing! By that time he stopped doing it so when I went and checked his Devil Power or DP is increased to 50, that means 10 more points were added because I didn't take any action quicker! 
      After that happened I thought I need to keep an eye on this little devil because I'm not allowing this to happen again, so I did that and made sure that every time he misbehaved and tried to be mischievous I will discipline him which is exactly what happened  
      This is him being naughty and not allowing me checking his health status after he beeped: 

      that was the only time I was able to take a pic of how often and quickly he will pull pranks on me which makes me laugh every time I see him sabotaging the games, not allowing me to check his status or even rejecting the food when he calls for it!  
      That helped me reduce his Devil Power a lot a long with 'Shaking Hands' with him. Randomly he will beep while looking at me and giving me a lovely little evil smirk which basically means that he is being friendly and wants peace:

      Ultimately, all I want to trigger is a 'Good End' and a good looking character when he reaches his final stage, all that can be done if I manage to discipline him and make sure the friendship level between us is good. Only time could tell we should just wait and see...
      The Magical Witch:
      After inserting the batteries oh my I couldn't believe I'm actually starting my very first Magical Witch that happens to be the air witch, also called Baluluna. After setting the time I waited for about 5 minutes to finally have my witch arrive! Also I would like to say that the animation is beautiful when there is a moon on the side of the screen that keeps rotating until your witch arrive, thought that was a perfect intro that suits the theme of the toy  

      She was hungry and wasn't feeling well (as she should be I mean who take 5 minutes to show up) I fed her some seeds and snacks to fill her meters up.
      After settling her down, I went and searched about mixing the ingredients to create potions because that's what Magical Witches are about, using magic to either curse or cure another witch. I tried the first time mixing the very first potion that you can make and things did not turn out well...

      the first attempt as you can see above didn't end well, while using the mixing bowl my witch looked funny when suddenly the potion exploded at her haha! She looked a bit sick and it took me a lot of time to actually figure out how to cure her from the explosion and turned out one of the seeds she has in store can actually cure her but needed to be used multiple times. I decided to give her a break for few minutes and go for another try one more time. This time she did well by mixing the ingredients well and we got what we wanted for our very first mix which is mushrooms:

      Each time you successfully mix the ingredients you will get three pieces from the same mix. I gave my witch another break and made sure she is fed and healthy before going for the second potion she has to make. 
      The second mix went very well and it took only one attempt:

      As can be seen, the second item she obtained is a broom, which will help us obtain the third item/food that we will try to mix tomorrow.  
      Paying attecntion to her MP or Magical Power could give us a really good results with the witch behavior and how well she could produce different mixtures, if there's another witch involved that will help it increase even faster but we should be alright with just one.
      The End:
      That was all it for today, I personally am enjoying them both equally and I believe the more is yet to come. Although my Devil keeps beeping while it's asleep as I'm writing this it beeped more than 5 times (now it's 3am where I live) I've always loved the fact that you need to take care of a Devil and that didn't disappoint especially that I have terrible history with vintage tamagotchis but this one is different I can tell.  The Magical witches don't necessarily function as a Tamagotchi but they do look alike. For example the icons are similar, the buttons and how they respond is the same and I think the overall it's simpler gameplay wise. Definitely excited to see what we can do tomorrow so stay tuned.  
      this is the end of today's log, hope you guys enjoyed it please feel free to comment about anything.

      Hey guys!
      The long-anticipated moment has arrived..
      I got my very first Tamagotchi!
      It is the Magic White version of the Tamagotchi ON.
      So in this log, I won't be posting pics, sadly.
      LET THE LOG COMMENCE!
      Friday, 27/11/2020.
      I started up my new Tama, filled in everything, and got ready for my egg to hatch!
      It hatched into.. a girl, which my dad named Daisy. 
      I took care of it, then it took a nap for, like 3 minutes. I woke up the screen to see that it had pooped on the spot.
      Not long after, it had evolved into Chiroritchi, a good care character!
      So I immediately got to getting out and earning gotchi points.
      That's it for now, see ya next time! >w<

      Hello, hello, I'm a long time fan of tamagotchi but a new member to tamatalk! 
      I decided to start a log for the lavender Wonder Garden tamagotchi I just got, which was one part a nostalgia purchase and another part mental health purchase. As silly as it sounds, tamagotchis helped me through depression  and anxiety as a kid. They're very much security blankets to me. 
      However this log won't really record my mental health, just the tamagotchi so don't worry about that.

      Forgive my phone's crummy camera, but I got a baby girl! I've always been more partial to female tamas personally!
      Also yes, that is my personal art! I find tamagotchi's simple designs lend well to being good warm up sketches so expect seeing some doodles my tamas now and then.
    • By LucidLyes
      So this morning my Hashizoutchi died at 18 years old.

      It was the longest that I've managed to keep a Tamagotchi ever as far as I can remember. It was on the Tamagotchi Game Boy game, on which I'm playing what I decided to label the "PoorBoy's Tamagotchi". The rules are that you can only take care of your Tamagotchi if the in-game clock matches your real-life clock. I've made a post about it here:
      https://www.tamatalk.com/IB/topic/199133-how-to-make-tamagotchi-for-game-boy-more-like-a-real-tamagotchi/

      Upon its death I was labeled a genius by some stranger aliens who took Venus to their home planet.

      Apparently they have the ability to revive dead Tamagotchi so Venus was revived and made an Honorary Member of... something lol. They dressed him up weidly and that's last time I saw him.

      So as promised, here is my log (@Penguin-keeper) . I'll be covering mostly the 3 Tamagotchi games on Game Boy. I'll be trying to get every character in every game, which I'm sure will keep me occupied for a long time. I'll also mix in some Android virtual pet apps so that the log will hopefully remain fresh and interesting.
      I'm starting with Tamagotchi 1 on GB, since for the time being it's my favourite of the 3 Game Boy games.

      As you can see I've already picked 4 of the eggs, with Venus being the 4th. It's time to hatch that green one which I'll be naming Gaia (I'm uninspiringly naming them after planets, before Venus was Mercury). I wonder what happens when you hatch all the eggs and the last one dies, there has to be a cinematic or something, we'll see.

      So here is Gaia. Since I've been raising Tamagotchis since a very long time and know all the rules, I'm adding myself a new rule to spice things up: for this run, I'm not allowed to check Gaia's stats apart from its age and weight. In real life, your pet or kid doesn't have a hungry and happy meter, you have to guess how it's feeling.
      I've also decided thar Gaia will be a nerd, I'm only going to give it Math training. The only exercise it will be doing will be to maintain its weight. We'll see how it'll grow up and how long it'll live with this education.
      I think that's all for today, I'll try to post everyday if my schedule allows.

      At this point for me, it's less of a tradition to keep a log than it is to start one. Half of the posts on Tamatalk are just going to be all my unfinished logs! ;A; But not this time, my dear readers. For I have dug out a Tamagotchi version that is very special to me, and with... a lot of hesitation, actually, have started it up for the first time in what feels like forever!
      As the title may give away, I am running (and logging!) my pink iD L! Back when I first joined Tamatalk, these were very popular, and also everywhere unlike the listings you see today. I got both my iD Ls - the aforementioned pink version and my now-rare Princess Spacey ver - back in 2013 for less than $100 each, and I'm glad I did because nowadays, oh boy do you have to sell your own soul to get your hands on one mint in box.
      Of course, this comes with its own issues - being that I've had these for seven years now, they've accumulated a ton of scratches, which is where most of my hesitation comes from. For those who aren't in the know, colour Tamagotchis - particularly their screens - are highly prone to scratches if you're not careful, and they can show up real easily on the screen as these annoying rainbow-like textures. My 4U and m!xs have managed to stay safe, luckily, but my iD Ls and my precious little P's have not had the same luck nor fortune. And don't even get me started on their front faceplates - I'd be able to actually afford a mint iD L with the amount of scratches they have.
      However, it is all cosmetic in the end. And it's not like I'm ever getting a new iD L unless I risk it for a used version, so I may as well take you all down with me. I've got a Pac-Man Anniversary Mini/Nano in the mail right now as we speak, so with a little patience I'll hopefully be able to log it soon!  Let's begin!

      iD L
      I put some new batteries in a few days ago, and was welcomed by a little Kingyobotchi! For those not in the know, they are the best-care female toddler character on the iD L. I also discovered that my iD L was on its 3rd generation last time I played it - I had previously raised a Kikitchi and an Agetchi, respectively, both of which are bad-care adult characters.
      Determined to take good care of my next Tamagotchi, I proceeded to get the next highest-care teenager, Painaputchi - and didn't look at a growth chart, which is extremely rare for me! I ended up raising an adorable little Chamametchi:

      I forgot how photogenic the iD L was. You can't even see any of the scratches on it's screen!
      (While writing this, I realized I hadn't given Chamametchi a name yet! I searched up the nearest random name generator, and blessed her with the title of London.)
      While Chamametchi isn't the... highest care character out there, she's still very cute (and not a teen, strangely). I decided to go for her Tamatomo Stamps - for those who don't have an iD L, every adult 'gotchi has three special likes that cause them to do a cute little animation + give you what's dubbed a Tamatomo Stamp. You earn the last Tamatomo stamp by having your adult-stage Tamagotchi for 72 hours (or, at least 5 years old, if I recall correctly). You can earn any Tamatomo Stamp in any order, and they're a fun little incentive to spend more time with your tama! Plus, it also gets them stamped in the memory book (which is how I discovered the previous tamas I raised), as well as a bonus cutscene when they get married. 
      Anyway, I decided to go for London's Tamatomo Stamps straight away! We decided to head to the park, as the market was currently being held:

      It's Kuchipatchi's mum! What she's doing here, I have no idea.
      Items at the market are usually marked down by 30%, so I wanted to get a good deal. I accidentally ended up leaving by way of the C button with London in tow.

      It was raining outside when I took this photo! Who knew Tamagotchi Planet had the same weather cycles... and timezone... wait a second.
      We decided to visit again later - for now, it was off to the TamaDepa to get something I thought London would like. The hunt for her Tamatomo stamps was on! I rarely search for these without consulting a guide, so there was an exciting factor to our adventure.
      I quickly swept into the accessories aisle, and bought London a pair of cat ears! It was time for the moment of truth...
        
      ...I mean, she's still happy at least?
      Unfortunately, it was not meant to be. If your Tamagotchi's latest item/accessory/food is Tamatomo-worthy, they'd usually start jumping high in the air with hearts everywhere! But London was quite mellow. She still defied gravity in her celebration, though.
      I didn't want to stop there, however - maybe an outfit was what London was looking for! We went back to the market again, as outfits can be super expensive:
       
      It's Makiko's mum! ...I just remembered that Makiko's name doesn't end in 'tchi'.
      I was running low on money, so we sold off the Tamamori Tree item I got out of the toy seed I planted in London's backyard yesterday. Don't ask.
      Anyway, we had enough money to buy London a lovely red kimono:
       
      I forgot how fun it was to dress up your tamas on the iD L...
      And thus the moment of truth began once again!

      Guess what happened next.
      ...And yet it also was not meant to be! Not only had I spent a ton of gotchi points on two outfits that weren't Tamatomo-worthy, now London looked like a weird anime character. She didn't seem to mind though.

      One last photo before the post gets too big...
      I decided to stop our Tamatomo hunting there for now. I took London to the different locations in the food menu, but none of the meals and snacks there seemed to activate a Tamatomo Stamp... not even the sweetest treats around! ...That, and it ended with me accidentally discovering Chamametchi's least favorite food. By then my pockets were totally empty. I'm sure I'm missing something here... maybe I should be more open to London's tastes and stop assuming that all she likes is pink stuff just by the colour of her ears? The irony is real.
      Next post: more stamp hunting! Meeting a Tama-pet at the park enough times to create a bond with them and take them home... I missed those guys on the 4U and m!x, they were useless but I loved them anyway!
