Ok, so has anyone out there played Nintendogs on the Nintendo DS?
I'm moving to an apartment that will not allow pets, but I will miss my cat dearly. (Don't worry, Miss Face has a new home.) How does Nintendogs work as a surrogate pet? Something to wean me away from noticing the empty space in my life where my cat used to be.
Nintendogs is absolutely adorable. It's terribly interactive--a little frustrating at times--and, while you'd think that some things (such as taking your dogs for a walk and teaching them tricks) would become boring after a while, this is definately not the case. Interacting with the puppies is a lot of fun.
It doesn't compare to a real pet, of course, but I found that I grew very fond of my pets very quickly. When I restarted my first game it was with a very heavy heart; writing this, I'm still a little sad that Bean and Waggy are gone forever. Ah, the memories...
Uhem. Anyway, you should definately pick up a copy and give the game a try. It's oodles of fun, duck, and you won't be disappointed.
What I would like to have is a Sony Aibo, but I'd have to receive one as a gift - I couldn't possibly afford it.
My brother has Chihuahuas, and let me tell you, they sure do stink. Perhaps it is a dog thing, I would not know since I have always had cats, but those puppies sure smell bad.
The Sony Aibo seems like a pretty clever cure for the "my pet is just a smelly freeloader" problem.
well, I haven't actually played nintendogs, although i wish dearly that i had one. I have heard from others, though, that they are great and very realistic. I would say you should probably go for it, get a nintendog.
My brother has it but it never beats a real dog. I love denver!
