GC06: Viva Pinata presentation

GC06: Viva Pinata presentation

The Game Convention is now almost over on Xboxyde, so it's time for me to put online this big and long presentation video of Viva Pinata. I've been able to record this footage explaining how the game works, and especially how we are able to get some type of Pinata in our garden. Even if this game is definitely aimed at a younger audience, I was surprised by how complex the interactions between the different types Pinatas could be.
The video can get a bit dark at times, it's completely my fault as I forgot to lock the exposure on my camcorder. It's still very watchable.

Thank's for this great video BlimBlim, I'm definitely getting this!

It's going to make a great change to actually relax & create characters and stories that you can actually care about and and have fun creating. Almost every other title this Christmas involves shooting, Driving or violent killing.

Yes I'm getting Dead Rising, Gears of War and Test Drive Unlimited, but you need games like Kameo, Lego Star Wars II and Viva Pinata, otherwise there's no variety.

I see they fixed the cache writing problem that occured during GC with the 360 demo-units (a lot of websites jumped too early on the "blaming Rare for 2fps" waggon)

my expectations were big for this title and didn't get dissapointed :)

yeh i watched them it actually told you how to attract the unicorn (cant remember the real name for it) you needed a special tree :-)

ive got to say i was suprised by it it actually looks good fun and game nephews, younger children could actually play :-)

i like the idea of the labels that get added to a pinata as you create them i could easily end up with one that was created by someone in japan, passedto someone in the US then to me :-)

Looks like it's gonna be lots of fun for children and grown up's alike :D
Commented on 2006-08-27 13:48:49
That looks so much deeper than I expected and graphically I don't think anyone can fault it at all!

Looking forward to a demo.

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog escaping is really tough though, took me a fair few tries, and isn't really worth the pay off. (32 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: i think there's only 2. die and escape. (44 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Played Resident Evil 7 demo just now, finally on Xbox One now. I still miss a third person cam but they got the atmopshere nailed, really damn good. Has anyone here got all the endings? (1 Hour ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Wow noway i'll be buying CoD Remaster anytime soon, just over 200 people were playing it on PC in the last 24 hours :/ Rest of the maps are coming including Winter crash :( (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it's the reason why the PS pro can't exceed the targeted framerates of the base console, even if it is more capable. it would create unfair advantaged. hell, you could argue it does already (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: I only played the Campaign in the Gears games, so can't say anything about Multiplayer. But Campaign wise, I stand by my previous comments. (5 Hours ago)
