Suburban Timewaster

I play video games and review them.

Digimon (Amazon.com)

From the makers of Tamagotchi comes the Digital Monster itself, Digimon. This creature traveled all the way from the Megalithic Mainframe for you to train it. Maybe you’ll be able to get the ultimate Digimon. Maybe you’ll be your Digimon’s downfall.

That’s right; the popular anime started out as little more than a virtual toy. When Tamagotchi started out, it wasn’t doing very well with boys. Therefore, Bandai created Digimon to make money off both genders. Like the Tamagotchi, you raise the Digimon into adulthood. Unlike the Tamagotchi, you can train the Digimon for battle. When your Digimon reaches rookie form, you can hook it up to other devices for a battle. If your Digimon wins enough times, you can unlock its ultimate form.

I find this toy very addictive. I give it 7 out of 10; a huge blast from my past.
