What is your favourite piñata?
>newtgat master race
this fucking game man
>buy it expecting a comfy ass cute game
>instead get a fast-paced RTS
>pinatas beating the shit out of each other and/or burning to death
not a bad game but not at all what I was expecting.
>but Viva Pinata for PC
>It doesn't work on native Windows XP
>never get to play it
Idk what kinda game you were playing, but I thought it was comfy as hell... I had like 500 hours in that shit, 100% achieves....
Which reminds me, is there any way to get the Viva experience on PC? I would desperately enjoy it.
I remember just making my farm thing just full of these and constantly having to beat the shit out of the foxes that continued to try and kill them. I never really advanced past that
I fuckin' loved that game. I got it when I got my Xbox 360. Honestly, I haven't played it in so long that I don't really remember my favorite. You remember getting the Dragon? I remember saving a small patch of dried soil so I could get him gold. Good times.
These motherfuckers. They kept killing my ants like the faggots they were, so i decided to open a garden just for them.
Sherbats were always my favourite, I want to give the non-sour versions a hug.
It is at the same time the most calming, relaxing game but also the most stressful.
>that feel when a lickatoad beats up your favourite newtgat, Tolberone. while you were trying to breed those fucking swanana's
you're missing out
>Tfw having to overhaul my entire garden to get a Roario resident
>Tfw having to overhaul my entire garden to get a Chippopotamus resident
If it'd been on a Sony or Nintendo console, they would've tried to squeeze the most out of the franchise and have new games every year or couple of years.
But hey, at least we have Kinect Sports.
They just wouldn't eat the motherfucking plants before nightfall
Never got one to enter my garden
You can get the classic version on pc for cheap as fuck, but not the trouble in paradise.
I had to start a new garden so I could get a gold one, so pissed when I discovred they could have other colours.
second favourite pinata, motherfucking buzzlegums. I want a wild card one so bad, those kawaii as fuck ears they get.
Sour version was so fucking cool though, they look nerdy as fuck when they change. disappoint.
>Roario needs 5 Doenuts and 5 Zumbugs present just to ENTER the garden
>Chippopotamus needs 60% of water to become a resident
Microsoft is notorious for neglecting anything that isn't dark, gritty and/or gun related despite any potential profits they might get. Any "kid friendly" titles they put out are usually launch bait for parents who don't know better, rather than something with effort put into it.
trying to get a dragumfly for three fucking IRL days.
>bullrushes keep dying
>never there when bullrushes are all in bloom
>finally get them all there WITH dragumfly
>it wont fight the fucking redhott
>mfw it fucking flies off as night falls.
Yeah you're talking chinese to me. The only VP i played was the first one.
I think the best pinata i got there were the crocodiles. got to breed a fuckload of ducks for them to appear.
loved that game but those sourfags made it too stressfull. Especially because those fucking expensive guardians didn't do shit. Whish there was an option to make their invasions a bit less frequent
My gripe was that it wasn't practical to get those pinatas, instead of having a thriving ecosystem you have to micromanage the hell out of your garden to the point where it stops being fun.
Dude. I remember getting this game and literally everyone I knew in my neighborhood laughed at me. Two weeks into it I had every one of these niggas watching me giving me garden tips and shit. I miss this fucking game.
I can't tell if you're trolling or not but
>expecting a wider variety of games on a console is entitlement
I mean I'd be interested in buying an Xbone if it actually had a handful of games that interested me, but it doesn't.
>mfw last game was released 7 years ago
>mfw there will never be a new one
>tfw one of these african bushmen nignogs destroys your garden and kills your pinatas
You talkig about the twingersnap? its a snake, but you can get one with fucking fourheads
If all the faggots who said "MS ruined Rare" bought the Viva Pinata games even though they were actually great, we'd probably be on VP 5 by now.
>TFW bought a 360 bundle in 2006 with Viva Pinata instead of Gears
>TFW I supported good Rare games
>TFW there will never be a VP3 unless Phil Spencer is fucking with people again when he said VP's a franchise he's interested in bringing back at E3
I remember having separate gardens for specific breeding projects and one main garden I imported the successes into. I'm 22 years old and it's still one of the best times I've had in a game. So unexpected.
>had to keep a worm pinata baby-factory so I could sell them for mad dosh
>had to keep shit pinatas around to get the actual pinatas you want
>finally get it some nigger comes in and kills it while you're not looking
This game was never good.
You can tell by the lack of screenshots on the thread.
In every simcity, or those park games. Plenty of people share their cities and parks to show off.
In this game? No one shares a garden, nobody cares, because nobody played it or even liked it.
>VP3 announced at E3 2015
>It's a f2p Farmville clone
"Breeding" games are definitely an underrepresented genre, which has had a LOT of good games with psuedosandbox gameplay and basically a ton of shit to do. Creatures, Chao from Sonic, heck even in Pokemon, with all the different variations and colors and knowing which ones to breed with which to get the results you want.
Phil Spencer doesn't fuck around with that stuff. Man greenlit a Phantom Dust reboot of all things. Also, he's come out and said that he doesn't really want Rare to work on Kinect Sports anymore and would love to see them return to their roots.
That's some dangerously shitty bait you got there son.
>get an Xbox 360 for Christmas
>Get this game with it
>Thought it would suck
>Turns out it was a lot of fun
>Get this guy to come into my garden
I should check back, but I think he was 4 years old last time I checked. He's the old man of my garden
I know this is off topic, but has anyone thought this guy looks like David Jaffe from Twisted Metal and God Of War fame? Too bad he is an immature faggot on Twitter, I actually enjoyed his games back in the day.
Oh GOD no
And it'd be so easy for them to do it too, it even sorta looks like one of those games...
He was the funniest character in the cartoon too.
>buy viva pinata on PC
>installs perfectly with no issues and runs at 60 FPS
playing eugenics in video games is so satisfying
>Get on of those fucking worms into my 10/10 garden
>Bash that fucker's head in with a shovel
>Watch as my pinatas become cannibals
Do you like being creative? Playing god? Breaking pinatas? Gardening? Being a total fucking jewlord? You'll like this game. If you don't like those things
that's okay and I respect your opinion, but don't bother people who do.
Fun game, but there wasn't an awful lot else to do after unlocking all of the Pinatas and purchasing everything –which takes about 20 hours. I only ever played the first one; I wanted to play the second but I just never got around to it.
I also enjoyed Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts quite a lot, I had the world record on several missions.
Rare's hiring pages completely dumped all mentions of "Motion Control" and are looking for people with Unreal Engine 4 experience now.
God I wish they could put Viva Pinata on steam without GFWL
>TFW you pester Rare's twitter account about that and they actually favorite it.
GFWL killed it.
No one shares a garden cause we played this shit seven fucking years ago son. These are far distant memories we're running off of. And every memory in this thread is filled with FUN SOUNDING THINGS.
Fuck you and people like you.
>Breaking pinatas? Gardening? Being a total fucking jewlord?
Pic related to those.
I remember watching the cartoon on 4Kids a few years ago, and actually really liking it, but now I'm not so sure. Is the cartoon good?
1. cute fucking pinata's
2. they are named after FUCKING CANDY.
3. managing your own garden, when there is always room for improvement
4. hours and hours of gameplay, even when you're finished your first garden you can start a new one and strive for a different tye of garden. Have a little farm with lots of domestic pinatas as your first? try to go for a boggy swamp garden, or insects only, bird sanctuary etc
5. calm and relaxing
6. wonderful atmospheric music
7. ingame goals to set for yourself and reach
8. goals you set that are met ad rewarded in game by exp that help you level up and eventually give you prizes like shovel upgrades or garden space
9. you can decorate and shit
11. really fucking annoying minigames that somehow always manage to be fun and also scale in difficulty.
i could keep going but i dont know whats important to you in a game to be able to describe those aspect to you.
>see viva pinata disc randomly at friend's LAN center (he owns it)
>pop it in expecting to quit out after some cutesy bullshit
>end up playing it with perhaps some of the most genuine feelings of fun ive ever felt
>play it for hours
>eventually call it a night
>go back to lan center next week
>someone broke the disc because they thoughy it was gay and they didnt even try playing it
THIS IS WHY VIDEO GAMES ARE SHIT. PEOPLE WONT GIVE FUN A FUCKING CHANCE
How big is the biggest possible garden or are the maps small as fuck?
>9. you can decorate and shit
>11. really fucking annoying minigames that somehow always manage to be fun and also scale in difficulty.
I had the world's highest ranking Chippopotamos. And for the Vulture.
Microsoft's been hinting that it's one of the Xbox hueg and 360 IP's they want to give another chance like Crackdown and Phantom Dust. But then they are also hinting Voodoo Vince and Crimson Skies.

This was when it first launched. Good times.
Decorating - There is a village center you can access that has stores, one of these is the general store where you can buy seeds. You can grow vegetables, fruits, tree's bushes etc. You can also buy a variety of fencing and pavings to DIY your garden with. You can also buy other general decorating items like fountains, chimes, a statue, fallen logs etc. If you get the beggars shop, the decorating items he gives you will also positively effect your garden. The red-eye rainbow will stop pinata's fighting, as a few of the species don't get along and will fight all the fucking time. You have 100% control of your garden and how it looks at any time.
eugenics - Basically you breed them, if you don't like them you can beat the fuck out of them and kill them which ends when they explode in a rain of confetti and candy with happy cheering. Other pinata's will eat the candy which makes them happier. You can also change their colours by feeding them select items, like flowers etc.
minigames - basically, you have to fill requirements of pinata's for them to be able to romance, which basically means fuck. when you get them to fuck, it will take you into a minigame where you have to guide one pinata through a maze of exploding balloons. With low level pinata's its an easy maze, with higher, more valuable pinatas its tricky as fuck and you die a lot. But, they also scale personally to each pinata (all the maze's are custom too)
the more of that pinata you have in the garden, the less lives you have to make it through the maze with. At the end, before you get your 7th pinata (which will make you a master romancer for that species of pinata, an award given to you that gives you more exp) you end up with one life to make it through, which is hard as fuck.
like this, warning super shit video.
You can smack pinatas with your shovel to break them and the others will feed on their candy. You plant flowers, make water features and other stuff to attract pinatas. You can sell pinatas in your garden to make money.
>leave the game running for like 2 hours trying to mine a dragonache egg
>spend another half an hour going through hoops to hatch and mature the dragon
>get bored of it immediately
I bred the pigxie (flying pig) yesterday and immediately regretted it. The thing is fucking retarded. Like, it should be euthanized because it looks like it wants to die. Its fucking face is lopsided, it walks with a limp, it made me feel so fucking uncomfortable with myself I immediately let it get eaten by a sour mallowolf and sold the house.
>You have 100% control of your garden and how it looks at any time.
But doesn't after you get this
>The red-eye rainbow will stop pinata's fighting, as a few of the species don't get along and will fight all the fucking time
The game goes easy modo? If there are items that can literally and ultimately stop all problems, doesn't that ruin the fun?
So the eugenics is mostly about mixing colors, and killing colors you don't like? (for the theme of the garden)
That minigame sounds pretty fun.
It decreases the chance of infighting, it's easy to just not use though. And it doesnt ruin the fun, the fun is everything else in the game. Its very hard to explain in depth what you can do ingame, it's something that you have to play and experience. There are so many things and factors that would take hours to type out and explain instead of just playing the game and deciding for yourself.
>It decreases the chance of infighting,
Oh, it's by chances. I like that then.
From your posts I get the feeling this game isn't casual shit and actual love was put into it. Which makes me feel weird, because it's called Viva Pinata and it's about gardening and pinatas.
There's a really cool trick with syrupents, where if you get a twin wildcard egg, and turn that into a twingersnap, you'll get twin wild card twingersnaps.
Same applies to getting twin wild card fourheads easy.
> Pull Viva Pinata out from its dusty cover on my shelf
> Play it for 10 hours straight, build a pretty fucking good garden
> Need sleep, I quit the game
> mfw I forgot that VP didn't have autosave at all
Some people inside Rare hinted at them wanting to bring it back. I could see Phil Spencer actually approving it since he doesn't seem to care that much about sales (or he's naive and thinks Phantom Dust will actually sell)
>mfw I make a VP thread expecting to be mocked only to find out /v/ loves VP.
Its a comfy cute animal game, AND a brutally murderous wildlife simulator all in one, with RTS/Town Building, creature breeding, macro/micro gameplay.
Its pretty fucking well-rounded of a game.
What more does one need?
Shit I was planning on adding that.
nothing like making my newtgat wear one of those stupid fucking propeller hats
People to buy it so it becomes a well loved series
Well, yeah. I guess that would be nice.
More games like Viva Pinata would be nice. At least to get away from the monotony of SUPERSERIOUSBROWNANBLOOMSHITBASEDCOMBATOFFANTASYORREALISTICKIND or MEGAKAWAIIUGUUEASTERNSHITJRPGMIGHTASWELLWATCHANANIME
Just give me some fucking fun.
>Shellybean dance is exactly the same as how Snails mate in real life
I think one big thing about Viva Pinata was that it was a comfy game on a console. Nowadays all the comfy games are on portables or even phones, and there's nothing for the guy who just wants to hunker down on a nice soft couch, wrap himself in a blanket, and play video games while chilling out. Nothing that'll make you angry like online multiplayer or super hardcore singleplayer. Nothing where you have to follow a story or anything like that. Just you, vidya, and peace of mind.
I always despair when this conversation always happens in Rare threads
>"RARE WENT TO SHIT UNDER M$"
>"Did you play Viva Pinata?"
>"VIVA PINATA DOESNT COUNT/WHAT THE HELL IS VIVA PINATA"
Ignorance is the biggest killer of them all
>mfw i would berry my dick so far in Costalot's ass whoever could pull it out would be crowded King Arthur
Yeah, by shooting their dicks into eachothers necks.
The love dart is coated in hormones that induce greater fertility in the victim, guaranteeing a more successful mating when they
wrap their flower-shaped penises together and exchange sacs of sperm
fuck those niggas. bitches yell all the fucking time and jump over my fences when im trying to convert the sour pinatas and eat the bad shit and then get sick. then those fucking guys can't figure the fuck how to get out and they run in circles and yell
>tfw Whirlm 1 gets eaten
I always did my best to keep the first whirlm alive, I don't know why but gardens don't feel the same to me without my whirlm bro.
>had two cluckes

>Corn wore a daisy and Cluckinson a red spiked collar
>they had a beautiful baby together
>had them fenced in to save them from Preztails
>one day, somehow, Corn managed to glitch through the fence
>too late to save her, she was eaten by a preztail
damn near cried as I smashed that foxes fucking face in as he was joyfully started gaining colours, trying to join my garden family. Not on my watch. You're not taking Corn's place.
>TFW Leafos tells you not to cry because it's all part of the "Doughnut of life"
I cracked up. Then I was sad
That Giant Enemy Crab reference got me though
Ah, I was thinking candy and sweet bakery things but never got it.
>I thought alot of those never were really clever.
names* were really clever. Really clever. I love the Pinata names. They're great.
Pepermint Whirls like the Lollipop
Some of the references are obscure as fuck. Chewnicorn was a reference to a British sweet called Chewits (A british sweet sorta like Starbursts). It was also running gag like Mr. Pants on Rare's website since it opened in 1996 where Leigh (The guy who replied on the letters page) would go on random sequiturs about Chewits during the replies.
VP always had really unappreciated humor like the load screen tips. You should read the Pinatapedia entries. Some of them are ridiculously dark humored like the Fudgehog's.
> A Viva Pinata game today

>BUT REMEMBER TO ALSO PURCHASE THE MEGA PINATA PACK!
You all know GODDAMN WELL that this is what would happen to VP in these times.
Best to not let a loved -if relatively unknown- game be remembered fondly. Let the publishers and devs fuck up whatever cash cows they already have. Don't let them take away VP too.
You can also force MSAA and SGSSAA via Nvidia inspector to make it look really comfy.
I would so love to see Viva Pinata pop off again on Xbone and PC. Before they announced the Xbone I was hoping for a next gen big Viva Pinata 3 made by Rare. Goddamn. You're right, you are. But shit.
I bought the special edition of the game that came with a second disc. It had a couple game demos and episodes of the TV show. I actually watched it and it was pretty decent. Kinda funny too.
At this point, it'll take a miracle in the form of a Microsoft exec actually liking VP enough to push another sequel through or the rights getting sold on to another competent dev.
>Expanding upon the subject of Rare’s place within Microsoft Game Studios, Lobb added that what the studio does next after Kinect Sports Rivals is “up to them” – pointing out that the studio’s work on Kinect games was its choice, not some mandate sent down from the upper echelons of the business. ”Our studios run themselves as relatively independent studios,” says Lobb. “They have very strong voices in the decisions about what they should be working on.
>“I loved Viva Piñata; I loved Nuts & Bolts. Naysayers can say what they want; I always wanted Banjo 3, too, but I loved Nuts & Bolts. Rare used to sell millions of everything they made, and I think it’s the audience that helped them [decide what to make next]. Piñata was one of the best games Rare ever made and I wish it would’ve sold millions, because it was super-creative and I love the direction it took Rare. But every group of people wants to continue to do what they love doing. The original Kinect Sports was their best seller as an Xbox-owned developer; that’s why they would go and do another one.”
All Ken Lobb has to do is tell Spencer to greenlight it like he did with Phantom Dust.
Same as Blue Dragon.

Assuming you guys know this, but if you put a fence all the way across the side next to your tower of sour it stops professor pester from entering your garden. Do that and get the cutlass and no faggots wll ruin your shit
>mfw I check out professor pester on the VP wiki and it has this little tidbit
>"He used to help Jardiniero with his garden. He was originally named Lester before he ruined Jardiniero`s hard work, after he sent him after a legendary Dragonache tale. From then on he was known as Professor Pester, he even lured Jardinero's son Stardos into his lair to try a piece of sour candy which changed him into Dastardos."
>"Stardos was the first child that Jardinero and Mother gave birth to. At a young age, Stardos was taught by Jardinero on how to raise a garden to attract pinatas. Stardos became an accomplished gardener. But then, when Mother and Jardinero were away on a trip to search for the legendary Dragonache, trouble began to ensue. Jardinero's former helper Lester approached Stardos. He claims that he has made a candy that can easily attract pinatas. Lester lured Stardos to his lair in the jungle and invited him to try some. Corrupted by the sourness, Stardos became Dastardos and now begins to smash any sick pinata with a stick. Jardinero's family knows that Stardos has disappeared in the jungle, but never realized that he is Dastardos. Jardinero claims that Dastardos remind him of someone he use to know."
THERE IS NOTHING MORE VALUABLE THAN A SEED.

Make a steam group and post it in the thread. I don't have a copy at the moment but in the future that sounds brilliant.
I'd never looked into this game before, I'd seen it in many a bargain bin and laughed at it. Holy shit I'm such a fucking moron. I'm already downloading after 1 link in google.
Just got TiP thanks to this thread. Now let's hope my 4 years old 360 won't break.
>tfw Professor Fuckass waltzes into my garden and specifically kills my Doenut because I loved it the most and gave it a pirate hat
Dusting off the old 360 and chucking in Trouble in Paradise now, /v/.
Thanks, bros, for reminding me of what is truly important.
The first game is the only game were I managed to get the 1000G, and I got every single not multiplayer or camera G on TiP.
The Rashberry is my favorite pinata.
That was everyones problems with it though. It was a completely different game with Banjo slapped on it for attention. If they had used other characters it probably would've been fine.
Both are probably cheap enough to warrant getting both. I would probably reccomend the sequel though due to issue fixes and more content even though I haven't played it myself.
Read wiki pages on it if you want to know what it improves on exactly.
But that's the B-K theme park level, anon
This is my favourite garden, I took the photo in 2009.
Man, I think I'm gonna visit it again tomorrow.
It was a safe bet to slap banjo on and probably didn't remove/lower the chances of banjo threeie.
Most mario games and spinoffs started out as unique ip's but got mario added for financial security. One example being the highly successful galaxy series.
Does this game utilizes the RT much? I just realized mine's not working.
I made a Reaper from Mass Effect but never took an in-game picture.
holy shit I loved this game, i had damn near 100% completion in terms of achievements.
who master chili gardener here?
I wouldn't know the only 360 Rare games I played were Nuts'n'Bolts, which was
okay, and Perfect Dark Zero, which was shit. It's pretty apparent that /v/ loves Viva Piñata, so I'll look into that once I either download the DS one or look around for cheap versions of the 360 ones, but what about Kameo? All I remember is that it was a launch title and it had a custom theme prepacked on my 360, back when it still used Blades.
Anyone else miss Blades? I do. Makes me wish it was less complicated to mod one.
If the game suports a pad use it, the control is far better with it.
Also if you can play the 360 versions go straight to Trouble in Paradise, is a better game with more pinatas, options and a lot of gameplay tweaks.

Gold Dragonache best Dragonache.
My favorite was the Mothdrop.
DS game is amazing and also super rare to find. I would highly recomend getting it though.
I'll need to go through a weekend to get my TiP.
Sour Cocodile was a big favorite of mine.
also let's talk about how comfy that soundtrack was.
I own the album but for some reason it doesn't have this song on it so I was pretty disapointed. I absolutly love the end bit.
>tfw downloading that torrent at 200 KB/s
motherfuckers need to seed
the torrent you have apparently doesn't work well with 64bit Windows. the one we're getting supposedly does.
Did anyone have trouble getting the Jeli in Pocket Paradise? I heard that it's only available on one of the three save files on the cartridge?
I've completed everything... I just need that DAMN JELI
dude, it's the fucking Prodigy
I bought it for my sister, we were both surprised at how involved it ended up being. My favorite was the hedgehog that looked like a loaf of bread.
Did anyone watch the cartoon? I hear it was big in Canada but I can't remember ever seeing it here
It was a kids game.
Also I never played the first one, I started with TiP. Should I play the first one? I kinda like how the village is a lot closer to the garden than in the second one where it's in the valley.
Everyone knows there's no such thing as Dragonaches!
Is hard to go back to the original once you get used to TiP, especially with the new shovel.
Go back to the first game and try to dig a lake big enough to atract a Chippopotamus without losing your mind.
Digging through my old pics I realized I had a garden just to attract and romance those fuckers.
Trouble in Paradise was the last game, far better than the first, but exclusive to 360.
It's a good emulation of the game for being a downgraded port.
>tfw had no idea Burger King had Viva Pinata toys because they didn't advertise it at all
What made it worse is that the game has like no merchandise.
>Japan-only preorder Goobaa plush
>Playmates' line of figures were canceled before release
>no actual pinatas other than a small special edition package or prototypes
I won an Xbox 360 because of a contest Burger King organized here with the toys
Every toy came with a code, you registered with that code and then you were supposed to "design" a pinata with the parts of others, I don't even remember what I did but I still won.
However, they never gave me Party Animals and it was part of the prize.
It's funny, because people say that Rareware died just as soon as Microsoft bought them. Really, I think we can all consider Viva Pinata their last stand.
[Spoiler] Anyways, pic related.
>can only have one dinosaur per garden
This is what I get for only playing Vanilla, I miss out on all the good stuff.
Nuts & Bolts vehicles coming through.
Trouble in Paradise has the most stuff. Only issue is that you can't 100% prevent Pester/ruffians (who kill/sicken your pinatas) from your garden like you can in the first game. You can build a gate in a certain shape to glitch him out that works most of the time.
