Picked it up earlier today, the wife seems to really enjoy it. Hmmm. Not sure if I thought this through all that well. One of the cool things is that two people can play on it simultaneously, sort of co-op. I'll let her play it for awhile before I start tinkering with it.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

The more I hear comparisons to Animal Crossing, the more interested I am in this game.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I played it for a hour last night and was bored out of my mind. The window pop-ups were annoying the hell out of me. Everyone else seems to like it, so I guess I should give it another chance.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

It's not even here yet. =( I heared it's good. But I'm more of a gorey girl.

I'll check gamefly for it. Then I'll get good at it. Then I'll send it back.

I was the same way Brook... I played for about 50 mins... The menu's Got really annoying quick... But then i figured out that Gardening is the key... Chili's To be exact... and Red Fertalizer ... Those = 50,000$ in 2 days it's not bad now i used the cash and unlocked 6 pinata's i didnt have and then beefed up my area and added some stuff to get some of the pinata's i seen walking around to come in... i went from maybe 15 to around 40 pinata's and they all started fighting.

Co-op? where?? from what i was reading it was cut out in the final release kinda like kameo's co-op was. it's a Alright game Achievements Arnt Very hard except for the factory ones...

If you want to try something ... do Chili's + Red Fertalizer = Big $<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

i would say it would appeal to children, bit itll be to taxing for a 4 or 5 year old, it looks nice and pretty, but kids thesedays prefer blowing stuff up, ny nephew plays many war, driving and GTA type games hes a little rebel, but i dont think he will like Vivas phantasyland style, nerverless ill take a look once its released in december.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

You're thinking of the unannounced sequel, Viva Pinata 2: Wrath of the Pinatas, modelled after the Conker games.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

You do get candy for smashing pinatas...

I played this sooo much over the weekend. I http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif it! It's so colorful and cute, and it's actually much more challenging than it seems when you start trying to attract unusual pinatas. I have fun taming the bad pinatas. My garden is as big as it gets and there are so many happy pinatas there.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

We put this into the 360 at work the other night and after I clocked out I stuck around for a while...ok about 2 hours and I played the game, naming my pinatas after employees, mating them and then sacraficing them in the donut of life http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif It is a very colorful game that is actually a lot of fun. And nice to see another "kids" game on the 360.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

You know, when I started this thread, I didn't realize how prophetic my topic statement was. Sigh.

One thing I was wondering about when trying to start my own pinata garden. What's the best way to start off? Should I grow grass over the entire section, put a few ponds in? I really felt like a n00b playing this game.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Try building a couple different gardens. Your level, money, and tools span all of your gardens. That way you can attract different kinds of pinatas to each different garden. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
