The lights are on
While Sony's new pet simulator for Vita shares some, shall
we say, distinct conceptual similarities with Nintendogs, it does appear to
push the formula forward on a number of fronts.
In a new trailer released today, you can see that the game
is a bit more expansive than the bare-bones (get it? dogs love bones!)
Nintendogs games. In addition to the usual playing around with your pet, you'll
be able to go for walks in a number of unique areas like a castle and discover
treasures and other items. The game also uses the Vita's external camera to let
your dog "play" in the real world - a neat little trick.
Oh, and the dogs have voices. Do they ever. To be honest,
even in this trailer, some of them got to be a bit grating, but we'll have to
reserve judgment for now.
I can't take any more cutesy, I'm gonna explode! (Explodes into rainbows)
THE KILLER AP PS VITA NEEDED RIGHT HERE!
Looks fun. Unfortunately giving them voices is only going to make me even guiltier when I neglect to feed them.
The voices for this game just seem so out of place. They couldn't just make the game, without the pets talking to you? Don't get me started on the outfitting of the pets either. Yikes!!
for me, the voices... are very bad idea...but, in some case its good...
Hmm... I suppose it pushes some things forward, but...
Finally, the killer app.
I hate this game on the sole reason that they talk.
If you can disable the voices this game might be tolerable.
Um, where are the cats? I WANT CATS!
