Viva Piņata General

It and TiP were mad underrated.

I keep hoping they'll do a third game even though I know it's unlikely to happen. But what with Pokémon's recent resurgence, and the general increased awareness for these kinds of games, I think a new VP game would do very well today.

There's still a lot of potential new ideas for expansion for Viva Piņata. Building hills would be cool. They were also going to have underwater piņatas in TiP rather than just semi-aquatic ones, including a shark called a Snacker, but the idea never came about. There's a lot of room for refinement too, to make the game less of a text dump with less interruptions.
Plus there's a ton of untapped ideas for new species. Mythical creatures and cryptids like the Jeli haven't really been touched. (Although I guess we have a few; Jeli, Chewnicorn...) Piņatas that evolve into new species are cool, and I always wanted more crossbreed species other than the Pigxie for example.

If they did Bunnycomb + Doenut = Jackalope I would squee in delight.

I definitely think building hills would be a nice feature as well. I don't find games to be fun when there's nothing to sandbox around with. Also, I never could manage to afford Bonboon Blocks.

Another idea; I want a pangolin piņata. Just picture how beautiful all its little scales would be in the Viva Piņata art style.



Plus y'know, I AM bias because I like pangolins.

VP was so cool. When I got it I thought it was amazing to be able to trade pinatas online.

Then I realized it was mostly about grinding money and I lost interest quickly

GUYS. Okay guys listen, I KNOW this is a double post, but you guys gotta bare with me, okay? I'm looking up Viva Piņata stuff; I just had a dawning comprehension that I feel I need to share with the class immediately.

So, I saw how I posted about a potential Jackalope piņata earlier. And since this would be a crossbreed with a Bunnycomb and a Doenut, I googled "honey doughnut", to see what the new creature's name could theoretically be. I always thought 'Bunnycomb' sounded awesome, but was a weird name because rabbits have nothing to do with honey. But I didn't know the half of it. Guys. These little darlings. . . .



. . . are honey buns.

I played this briefly when I was younger and adored the aesthetic/music of it but couldn't get my head around the gameplay. Is it worth coming back to? Worth playing whilst stoned?

It's actually a pretty deep simulation game. You could play it stoned, but I can't see you making much progress. The game is gorgeous.

I still stand by the fact that if Xbox One had launched with a Viva Pinata using Kinect, a cloud based economy, and the full power of the Xbox One we'd be looking at a totally different Rare right now. I'd adore a sequel, especially since it'd be play anywhere.

Was lying in bed last night thinking about life, and it occurred to me that Badgesicle probably comes from fudgesicle, not popsicle.
