Microsoft sent me a review copy of Viva Pinata yesterday, and as always I started a game so I could train a bit before recording the first 10 minutes. 3 hours of gameplay later, I realize it's already late and I really should start recording the video. So I start it with a new garden on another profile, and once again I get totally hooked, this time for another 2 hours of "just a bit more".
To my surprise, Viva Pinata is a very deep and complete game, totally addictive. Yes it looks cute, but beneath this cuteness there is a very complex gameplay. I still can't believe how good this game is, it has some small flaws I'll detail tomorrow with the second part of the video, but I totally recommend buying it if you are even a tiny bit into micromanagement games. It's that good. Update: The second part of the video is now online.
@KORNdog: What game is that?! (4 minutes ago)
talking about that splinter-cell style stealth game they showed back when the console was announced. (6 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: new IP's don't mean much if they're not appealing. they had their hands on a cool new IP that looked awesome, and people really wanted and nothing came of it (7 minutes ago)
But millions? Like a new mainline Halo game? Nah I don't see that happening to be honest. (10 minutes ago)
I mean I am not a big fan if Division and Destiny but they do have more than just one objective. But I am sure SoT will too at release (14 minutes ago)
It's going to depend on marketing I think and if Rare releases a full game, meaning several different quests, enough reasons to explore these islands. I think their E3 showing is going to be important (16 minutes ago)
