I admit that I’m not a huge gamer. That’s the hubby’s department. Bioshock, Halo, World of Warcraft, Star Wars, Everquest. He’s played them all. Thankfully he drew the line at Grand Theft Auto, so I didn’t have to. My games are a little more casual. The occasional Mario Kart or Super Mario 3D World is just fine for me. I never really got into anything more time-consuming like “The Sims” (or “The Sims 2”, or “The Sims 3” or “The Sims 37”).
So when I received a copy of Tomodachi Life for Nintendo DS it was with a bit of trepidation. First off, I had to borrow a DS from my niece. Second, would it totally draw me in and suck up all my time like World of Warcraft did to the hubby? Yeah, I was a WoW Widow for a while.
I have to admit that I am now hooked, but not obsessively so. The game is a fun little diversion for me. The goal is to populate your island with little avatars, make them happy and build out your island. Along the way you earn money which lets you buy all the stuff your little avatars need. Set them up in a little apartment, help them fall in love and get married. If there was one downside to the game, it would be the little mini-adventure game in the amusement park. I mostly found it tedious.
The only other downside? Now I’m going to have to get my own Nintendo DS to keep playing the game BUT Best Buy can help! Right now I am able to pick up a 2DS which plays all 3DS and DS games. The 2DS will also take videos and pictures! A gaming system that starts out at $129.99 with an awesome sale coming up is a serious WIN! Check out the details below.
