Started the galaxy P2. I have a particular fondness for the P2 because it was my first.
I’ve noticed a few differences already. First is ShiroBabytchi’s animation cycle, which is completely different. Also, the buttons are immediately responsive instead of having the frame delay the originals had. And there’s no confirmation beep when pressing B to start the game.
The game is changed slightly too. On the original, the Tamagotchi started with 5 when it’s born, and each new round started with the number it thought of in the previous round. This one starts with a random number for each round.
As you can see, most of these are in poor condition because I played with them a whole lot as a little kid, to the point where I’d had to swap out buttons to keep some of them going. The newest ones in the picture are the Morino (middle row, second from right), the Japanese P2 V2 (upper row, end right), and the two 2018 replicas (bottom and middle rows, end right).
I went to four different stores today and here’s what I got!
• Hey, recycled cardboard!
• How’d this plastic packaging get so scuffed?? Did someone stand on it? It’s more scratches that some of my 20 year old packaging lol.
• This tama has got dust under the screen already, but whatever, that happens.
• Tamagotchi itself has got lots of shell scratches 🙁
• God damn this smal boi is so LOUD! HE S C R E A M! These are not the tamagotchi beeps I know and love.
All in all worth the money, and I’ll be getting some more of my fav designs, but it’s definitely not Bandai’s best.
