So...Tomodachi Life is a game that exists. It is rather difficult to describe, as it does not really adhere to "standard" game parameters that we know. It's kind of like a mix of The Sims, Animal Crossing, Harvest Moon and...Nintendogs, I suppose?
The game centers around Mii characters created or imported in the game by the player, and they live out their lives on an island. The player can interact with the various Miis, by giving them gifts, talking with them, solving problems, or just watching them do random stuff. And that's it. It doesn't sound very compelling, but it can be rather charming.
In any case, who else has this game? What are your thoughts so far? How goes life on your island? How goes...your friends, your drama, your life?
@VofEscaflowne Do you have a big Mii Plaza? I've been using some of the old Miis from there. I have Nikki from Swapnote on my island, and I'm thinking of adding Cleopatra (from that old CHeck Mii Out channel on Wii).
@GameDadGrant Yeah, it's hilarious! Did you buy the full game yet?
Does anybody know what "treasures" are for? I got an NES as a reward for completing a minigame, but can't do anything with it. I already tried searching on message boards, GameFAQs, and Google, but have not found an answer. It seems like all you can do is collect and sell them, but I don't want to get rid of my NES until I'm sure.
