Did you know it’s the 10th anniversary of Tamagochi? Well it is, and things have grown up just a little…
Or not, depending on how you look at it.
This is definitely one for the grownups. If you’re having trouble getting a real date, you might like to try out a V Girl – your own virtual girlfriend (hmmm, maybe this is why you’re having trouble getting a date…)
Anyway, they’re similar to all the other virtualness you can carry round in your pocket – except that instead of having to feed and water them, you have to try to keep them happy with your small talk, whisperings, gifts, dates, and (apparently) great sex.
Yeah, I’m not even going to ask.
When you turn it on (at the power switch, I mean) you are allocated a
new girlfriend with their own profile. You get to choose a date or
something to tell them, and then you’re rated on ego, relationship and
The mind boggles. As will your colleagues if you use the included desk
stand to keep your new love interest on display at work – what do you
think she is, a trophy or something?
Yes, there’s a V Boy as well, if you’re after a boyfriend instead.
Mind you, they’re not exactly party animals – apparently they go to bed (to sleep) between 10am and 8pm.
Still, at £20 it’s a cheap night, and you don’t have to share your beer with them.
