[Closed] GIVEAWAY - Tamagotchi Tamatown Tama-Go & Collectible Figure

Tamagotchi TamaGo
Tamagotchi was something I couldn't get enough of back in the days. I would always sneak them to school and feed them, play with them, pick up their poo and everything lol. They were very addictive cute things to have. I still have many of my old ones that unfortunately don't work anymore. I have not been able to dispose of them, they're just too cute.
"TamaTown features the original Tamagotchi virtual pet with a whole new way to play! Collectibles figures allow you to play games and shop with your favorite Tama Character. With hundreds of collectible characters, TamaTown by Tamagotchi offers girls the chance to interact with their characters both in person and online. The online world of TamaTown features games, music, downloads and much more!"
TamagotchiThanks to Bandai, I received a Tamagotchi Tamatown Tama-Go ($19.99 SRP) and Tamatown Tama-Go Character Collectible figure to review. Tamagotchi has come quite a way since 1996, they recently came out with a new line of Tamagotchi pets with very cool features for a new way to play. This new line, called Tamagotchi Tamatown Tama-Go, feature the iconic eggshell-shaped Tamagotchi with interchangeable face plates, removable Tama Characters and Tama-Go. One thing hasn't changed about the Tamagotchi pets, and that's the fact that you have to train, feed, let rest, play, clean and keep them alive. With Tamatown Tama-Go, you can visit the park with your pet and even take it further online to Tamatown.com where you get a bunch of fun activities, games and unlock items. The website also has many great features, including chatting with other pet owners

There are so many Tamatown Tama-Go character figures ($7.99 SRP), each comes with their own games, interchangeable faceplate and shopping items. You simply slide them on and play! These Tamagotchis have a huge retro-feel to me and it has been fun raising my little pet like I used to. However, my little 4 year old sister has taken it upon herself to raise my pet on her own. Its just adorable how she checks in often and takes care of it. It was difficult for her to get used to the controls, as they are a little confusing for her age. We have both found the plastic covering on the screen is very distracting, and its a shame that it is not back lit or in color. It makes it very hard to play in direct sunlight or even in the dark.

I find a few cons on the Tamatown Tama-Go line, the major one being its size. It is fairly large and uses 2 AAA batteries (not included). The large size is quite a disappointment, especially along with the fact that it is not a color display. Instead, Bandai released this line with the slight upgrade of a four-gray scale display. The only line, that I'm aware of, that has been released with a color display is the Japanese-released Tamagotchi iD. This is something I hope they will release sometime soon in the U.S.

A huge thanks to Bandai for allowing us to review their new line of virtual pets and bringing back great childhood memories. There is not a single person that lays their eyes on these and not comment on how adorable they are. Bandai has been generous enough to provide 1 lucky winner with their own Tamagotchi Tamatown Tama-Go and Character figure!

Watching "No Reservations" On Television

Thanks for the article from Laura Ryan

One of the most interesting shows about travel being shown on television is known as "No Reservations". The reason why I like this show so much is simply because you almost get to explore other places in the world without even leaving the comfort of your coach. This show is one of the most realistic ones that I have ever seen on travel topics in my life. I feel that there is no better way to explore interesting things that you would not otherwise know about than to watch programs about them.

I start watching "No Reservations" on my satellite tv that I got after reading this Cable HD vs directv HD just this past weekend. Before I knew it, I was exploring India. The show did not just cover the parts that everyone likes to touch on. No, I felt that I was learning some things that are not talked about as much on other programs. I was learning about how the food service works in this country. This neat little bit of information may not have any practical use, but it was nice to learn something new. I would recommend watching travel programs to anyone who is considering taking a trip, or even just those who want to learn more about the outside world.

EA Games - I Love $0.99 Sale - [2/9 Only]

What better gift to buy your loved ones than some $0.99 EA games for their iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad? lol. I am a HUGE gamer and its a shame I just found out about this, but today, February 9th, is the last day of the promotion. I'm still looking through the list because there are so many games to choose from! I love racing and RPG games so I'll most likely end up getting Need for Speed and The Sims 3. 

These games are at 86% off so tell your girlfriend, boyfriend, son, daughter, niece, nephew, uncle, aunt, mom, dad, and whoever else about this great deal! I actually already have the Scrabble game for my iPod Touch 4G, which I just got about 2 months ago, and I absolutely love it. I'm surprised the quality of games actually look better on the iPod Touch than on my old Play Station 1, amazing how technology evolves.

Some games available: 
Fifa Soccer 10, Yahtzee, Monopoly, Mass Effect Galaxy, Madden NFL 11, SimCity, Simpsons Arcade, etc. 

Look down the list and then search for it on iTunes from your iPad, iPod Touch, iPhone or computer and search, then buy :)

Green Bay Packers - 2011 Superbowl Champions!

I've been a fan for 9 years and I finally get to see my team go to the Super Bowl and WIN. I cried, yelled, got butterflies, etc. The game was great and the Steelers gave it a good try, but, the Vince Lombardi trophy is back in Green Bay, Wisconsin where it rightfully belongs. My best wishes to Woodsen, Shields and Driver who were injured during the game. 

Congrats guys! I knew you would win! It was great seeing all of their reactions after Williams intercepted the ball with a mere :49 seconds on the clock during the 4th quarter. At that very moment, the world knew the Packers had won and the emotions that came after that were long awaited! :)
