<div class="bbcode_quote_body">“Viva Piñata,” an original intellectual property and the latest innovative gaming experience from leading U.K.-based developer Rare Ltd., invites gamers to create an immersive world where living piñatas inhabit an ever-changing environment. Beginning with a few basic tools, players build and take control of this environment, using their creativity and imagination to attract, protect and manage over 60 different piñata species that can visit their world and make it their home. Utilizing hundreds of customizable elements, players can create a unique piñata paradise.</div>

If you want to be a real dick, you can send Ruffians to your buddies, and watch as these "evil" piñatas tear up the landscape and beat up your piñatas.

Re: Offical Viva Pinata Thread



Here is a quick review. I appolgy for any spelling or gammer mistakes. I wrote this way to fast and didn't get a chance to double check it.



Please note I'm only 5 hours into the game. Alot more unlocks will come and bigger garden will I almost bet will be ready when you reach around level 20.



Firsr Review I have done in many, many, many years. Did I mention is was many years?





Viva Pinata is the latest game from legendary game developer Rare. Viva Pinata is a mix between animal crossing &amp; the sims.



Game starts you out in a small garden with a crying masked girl. Who guides you though the game functions and how to plant fruits, and how to acquires new pinatas.



After first hour to two hours game puts you on your own without holding your hand anymore. You must figure out how to attract new pinatas and make then a resident in your garden.



Once you have two of the same pinata you can do the romance dance. Yo how two ways to do this. First and easiest is buy two romance candy from the local shop. Second way each pinata has two objectives to get in the mood. For example worm looking pinata. You must buy them a house for them to do the romance dance.



Once you enter the romance dance sequence you start a mini-game. which is nothing more than get your mini pinata from point A to B within 60 second. Which anyone one can do and you have 5 tries.



Viva Pinata has also has RPG elements. Your garner can level up. As you level you acquire new upgrades and tools for your garnering tools.



As you level new characters show up to sell you items and services. First you have Seedos who comes by everyday and will supply you need seeds for free ever day and can acquire as many as you want.



Next we got Storkos She delivers a new baby pinata to the family after the romance dance. Your baby pinata will come in a egg once egg is cracked. your baby will live a few hours(in-game) will wrap them self in a and will turn into a adult pinata.



Than comes jariniero he will only show up when upgrading your tools. He is the previous owner of the garden. Since he is old to take care of it he leaves it to you.



Shop keepers they will show and sell you seeds, food, garden items, clothes for pinatas, etc. As you level up you get more items and new shop keepers will show up.



Service keepers they will show up way down the road. They will hunt for pinatas that has previous visited your garden. She will hunt for them. You can also buy selected pinatas from her for a high price. You also have a Doc who comes visit for ill pinatas.



Pinata Central XBL This is where you can trade anything you have with your XBL friends including rare pinatas.



Making money in viva pinata you have allot of choices. You can breed a pinatas and sell them for 100 to 1000+ coins per pinata. You could grow fruits and sell them.



Ever so often you have sour pinatas vist your garden dropping they bad candy if any pinata eats them they will become ill. You than need to call the Doc and the local shop.



Closing comments:

If your a fan of ether The sims or animal crossing you will love this game. Game has addictive game play and hours and hours fun for both kids and adults. It's the perfect game for everyone.

I played Viva on my friends 360 for 2 hours. It was fun, but that is not enough time to see very much. I think I would like the game and will get it later after a pricedrop. We also played...



FEAR is smokin at 60fps online/offline. The demo was running at 30fps.



COD3 has in many cases better graphics, but COD2 is a hell of a lot better game.



Gears of War is pheominal!!!



The Halo Faceplate rocks!!!

None of us liked it better. We all agree that some of the graphics are better, but the AI, cutscenes, and level-design of COD2 is much better. I cannot speak for multiplayer as we have not played that yet. We all agreed that we like the historical aspect of COD2 much better.



Also noticed that all the Reviewers ranked COD2 higher than COD3.



COD3 is not a true COD anyway. It's not coded by Infinity Ward.



Kinda like KOTOR2 is not as good as KOTOR.



I must purchase FEAR. It absolutely kicks ass! They added a new mode called Instant Action that outpulses leaderboard results. Multiplayer is a blast. Single-player pwns! I am glad they ported this one!



Anyway, back to Viva Pinata. I played it for a few more hours this morning. While I think it is solid at what it does, this is not my type of game. I like Monster Rancher(I hope Tecmo puts that on 360) much better.

I was completely uninterested for like 8 months. I don't normally like this sort of game, and the styling is so cute I'd be embarassed to buy it. But somehow now seeing gameplay videos and reading final reviews it just makes me want it.



If only there was a normal edition. I don't want that bonus DVD and I don't like the odd case.

I know, I'd just prefer a normal case, that's all. Special edition cases are nice if you want to put it out on display or something, but I just want a normal DVD case that fits perfectly on a shelf or in a rack with the rest of my collection and is simple to get the game in and out of.

have to get them before they start throwing their candy. than smack with the shovel. Have to reach Level 11 &amp; than level 21 for upgraded land. You will not be able to fit all the building you want. especially when you want the water pinatas. some require 20 &amp; 30% of land to be water.

Re: Offical Viva Pinata Thread



It has very basic RPG elements. You will level up and get new upgrades to the shovel &amp; watering can. Down the line you can buy Cow milker, Sheep shaver &amp; honey cone, Which will allow the pinatas to produce goods and you can sell them for coins. If you know the tricks of the game you can plant tree and use special mixtures and resell them for massive profit. Example I bough everything I needed for 100 dollars, Seed &amp; mix and sold it for 1080 coins. How I made 100K in less than 20 mins



This game is way to addictive. If you buy this game say goodbye to any personally life you had for the next month.



Also I have almost ever pinata in the game missing around 5. Have 55 of them right now.



Need figure out all the variants. Figured out all the evolute pintats.



If anyone needs any pinata just send a PM though XBL or post what you need. even got Chewnicorn.

you don't exactly trade you send boxes full of items/pinatas. if the other side wants to send you something you do the same.



Once you hit level 20 takes much longer to level up to 21 and 22, etc... took ages to get to 45. Than I got some harder pinatas and they increased my level by 2. when they stayed.

Have you ever played Sim City? It reminds me a lot of that, except instead of building public works to attract residents and businesses, you plant stuff to attract pinatas.

Let's just say you be playing way past 50 hours. Close to having ever single pinata. Now I just need to alter them into different species. Also need get last two sour pinatas. Some pinatas just hate each other no way from stopping them from fighting ever few mins. just have plan out the garden so their paths very cross.

Yeah, there's no ending. You can set goals for yourself like finding all the pinatas or getting achievements, but the games just lets you do whatever.

Yeah, I bought it anyway, but the case is even worse than I thought. It's so bad I'd actually consider replacing it if they ever release the game in a standard case.



I liked the special edition cases of Halo 2 and Doom 3, but it's gone downhill since then. I bought the LE versions of Prey and Oblivion because I decided the extra content was worth putting up with the giant metal tin or annoying fold-out packaging.

If you want bad LE edition look at prey LE edition. one wroset ways to pack a game. Oblivion LE was great LE edition easy to get to.



Dunno why all the fuss about the case. case is not that bad. Yes its odd shaped. How often are you going to look at the case. Most important is how the game is.

I don't know. She told me I could turn a cluckles into a parrybo by feeding it 5 different flowers. But I can't get a cluckles to eat any flowers (although I only tried a few kinds). And some other stuff that seems a bit off.



I figured she was just giving hints to make you think of the kinds of things you can do to change your pinatas without actually giving away any specific secrets.

It's like an extension of your first garden. Everything you've unlocked, stuff in the village, all the awards and stuff in your journal, your level and cash, are shared. You can send pinatas and stuff between the gardens by mailing them to yourself at the post office.



I made a huge pond that I didn't have room for in my first garden, and I was able to collect certain pinatas without worrying about them fighting with the ones in my first garden. Plus I suddenly started getting factory requests again, which had mysteriously stopped after 3 in my first garden.

was Playing it last night. Didn't want to play to much of it. Since I don't want to get sick of it and have no interest playing the second one. Thanks to MS. I lost my VP Saves so I had to start over from the start. I had level 50 Character.

IMO, MS is screwing the pooch again with Viva 2. I'm not seeing any commercials or ads, damn shame. I'll never understand how they can market games like Halo, Gears, and ME great but remain clueless over games like Viva.



With the lower price, I hope it sells better than Viva 1.

MS are dumbasses sometimes. Just hope they don't screw Banjo too. MS owns Rare and yet they rarely do good PR for their games.



You will 6 million commercials for Gears 2 in November.



This will be the last Viva Pinata game for awhile(confirmed by Rare). They said their looking into bring Conker back. All I have to say is it's about time.

Re: Offical Viva Pinata Viva Pinata 2 Thread



Yeah I agree, they'll do great advertising for games throughout the year, but when it gets close to their holiday "big" release, they tend to forget about the smaller (but as important IMO) titles within the same month.



Also isn't Rare still developing Viva for the DS? Or is Viva 2 the last 360 Viva game? I'm asking because I might pick it up for the DS since it looks it would be a better on the go game than a console game for me.



I would much rather Rare bring back Battletoads or KI than Conker.

Just picking up my copy of Viva Pinata:TiP. Looks like I will not be getting all the achievements. No way I'm getting the vision Camera just to get a extra 20 points. If you ask me kind of BS. Idea/feature is nice don't add it to the achievement list since not everyone has the camera.

Re: Offical Viva Pinata Viva Pinata 2 Thread



I picked it up yesterday and ended up staying up til 2 playing it last night. I really like it.



One of the things I misunderstood is that you don't actually get to pick a theme for your garden. I was under the impression that you could have a garden in the desert or in the arctic but as it is in the game is just sections of the island you visit where you can set up traps to caught certain pinatas that are only in that region and bring them back to your normal garden. I would like to have seen more from that than just setting traps, but it works for what it is.



Game feels very similar, but a lot cleaner. Controls are a little bit easier and there are challenges at the beginning that serve as a tutorial for some of the new changes.



Haven't tried the cards out yet, but I'm sure they work just fine.



I'd definitely recommend it to any lovers of the first game, and to anyone who slept on the first one.

Well the Vision Camera really isn't all that bad of a deal. It comes with a headset which would cost you 15-20 dollars and it also includes a month of xbox live which goes for like 7 or 8 dollars. Plus Uno if you haven't already purchased it. So if you look at it like that your paying about 10 to 13 dollars for the camera.



I have found a couple uses so far. They're aren't a ton but there are more and more as time goes on.. Viva/Burnout/Rainbow Six.. No doubt in the coming years you'll get plenty of use out of it.



I think that if you have the money just go ahead and pick it up.



I think when you hit the later levels, flashing the card will be a way better way to send/receive crates and items.

Re: Offical Viva Pinata Viva Pinata 2 Thread



I have only used the card that came with the game which for me and I assume all of the games was a yellow pretztail with a hat that I only used after I got a pretztail legit.



I am the same way. It would ruin the game to scan all of them. Attracting and making pinatas resident is what is so fun about this game and to just scan all of them would take all the fun out of the game.



I don't plan on using them other than for the achievements that require it and for when I've already progressed to a level where I don't care any more.

Any chance you could Scan the Famous Pinata and send it to me?





If you low on Coins and are at a decent level. You should get access to the Cactus Seed.



Plant the Seed and use Green Fretizer on it. Once it matured you can sell it for 1000+.



Seed: 79

Fertilizer: 63x3

Selling Price: 1440

I'll let you know once I find the Famous Pinata. Need to read up on it since it's suppose to be extremely Rare.


<hr class="bbcode_rule" />


Just build my Choclodocus.



This can be confusing to get. Few Steps to get the Choclodocus.





1) Before you head into your garden. Head into the Credits. Now smash ever Object you see in the garden(You can leave the flowers). Next Smash all the Pinata's. As you smash things you will unlock New Items.



2) Next you must Reach Level 45 to gain access to Red Bone.



3) Have Willy build Storage Shed



4) Theirs two way to gain the pieces you need.

A) Build a Mine and wait until the diggers dig up a Red and Green Bone. Than Buy a Red Bone

:cool: Buy Three Red Bones.



5)

A) If you have a Red, Green and Blue Bone have Bart Tinker with Each bone. You will get Rib's, Skeleton and a Head.

:cool: If you buy Three Red Bones. You will need Bart to tinker with each Bone.

Red Bone Gold Tinkering - Head

Red Bone Silver Tinkering - Skeleton

Red Bone Bronze Tinkering - Rib



Now put each Piece into the Storage Shed.



6) Now Buy a Wishing Well and toss 9,999 Coins down it. You will get amber. Now put that into the storage Shed.



7) Must have a Cluckles in the Garden. Now Head to Paper Pet's and put the Jurassic Hair onto Cluckles.



8) Open the Storage Shed and you will now see a Egg. Place the Egg in the Garden and have Cluckles sit on the Egg and a Choclodocus will be hatched.

I wonder if you sent me it and then I sent it back to you if we would both get the achievements.



If you have one sent it my way and I'll send it back and hopefully that'll work.

Yeah whenever you get around to it.



I thought it was a viral achievement though like you had to have one sent to you. You didn't get the achievement for it?

You sure you have the famous Pinata and not a SuperStar Pinata?



If you do have a famous. Send it over to me as well. Famous Pinata are Rare.

Cool, I got it. I think its the superstar pinata that Revan mentioned and not the famous one. But thanks though, I can use him for pinata shows.
