A Viva moment
After months of telling me how much I would like the game, R finally bought be a copy of Viva Piñata on Sunday. Since then, the two of us have been spending every spare moment playing the damn game. It really is too much fun. You have a garden that you tend in order to attract living piñatas, and some piñatas are attracted by other piñatas (and eat them). You get to breed them (they call it "romancing") and you can change them into different varieties. For such a simple idea, there is a surprisingly large amount of depth and attention to detail put into the game. All of the piñatas really look like piñatas - right down to their coat of tissue-paper squares. Plus, there are 60 different kinds of piñatas. Gotta catch 'em all, dammit!
