Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise (360)

A few more levels today, after getting a load of pinarctic pinata into my garden and master romancing Bunnycombs, Pengums and Flapyaks. No sign of any Jelis yet though, and getting Walrusks in is going to be a pain as I just don’t have space for all the snow and water they need.

Several new pinatas in my garden today – Fizzlybears, Mallowolves and Polollybears all made resident and sent to parties, knocking my level up to about 132. I also master romanced Hoghurts and Peckanmixes, as well as Goobaas, which helped raise my level.

Got two achievements today too – one for getting a Polollybear, and the other for completing all of the Region 2 party challenges.

Went up loads more levels today – up to 124 now – mainly through getting Moojoos in and romanced, as well as Juicygooses, but also managed three entire levels just because I got a Tigermisu resident and sent it to a party. I haven’t even begun to attempt romancing it yet!

Apart from a quick go on Mega Man 9 yesterday, this is pretty much all I’ve played this week. And I’ve played it a lot. It really appeals to my OCD side, as I systematically work my way through all the pinatas, getting them in the garden then master romancing them.

This week, I’ve managed Ponockys, Horstachios, Chewnicorns, Moozipans, Swananas, Rashberrys, Zumbugs, Galagoogoos, Profitamoles and Pigxies. I’ve also managed to make resident, or evolve to (but not yet romance), Moojoos, Salamangos, Hoghurts and Pudgeons. And I’ve managed to max-growth a load more plants and trees. It’s like a second job!

Didn’t play for all that long today, but did manage to master romance Geckies, and as a result, finally get some Badgsicles in my garden. That meant I could complete two of Langston’s challenges, opening up several more that I could access and complete.

More master romancing “fun” today – Bark Barks and Quackberrys, mainly. I also managed (finally) to get my Choclodocus to grow into adulthood. It seems I must have missed off a bone from the list of things I needed him to eat. I didn’t get anything for doing it, though.

I did, however, enter him into the “P Factor” contest, which he won, netting me an achievement.

Played this loads today. I’ve managed to rank up to level 83 or 84, around 8 levels or so. Did this mainly through master romancing Kittyflosses, getting Buzzenges resident, converting some sours (Cocodile, Macaraccoon, Lemmoning), sending loads of things off to parties, and catching a few Pinarctic pinata, like the Pengum.

Oh, and other species were master romanced too – Pretztails, Pienas, and some others. Now I just need to figure out what other stuff I need to feed to my Choclodocus to make it grow…

Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise (360)

Got back into this again a bit this evening. I master romanced arocknids and rashberries, as well as send lots of things off to parties.

Still having problems getting Buzzenges or Kittyflosses to eat my Sparrowmints. They’re just not interested! Why?

Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise (360)

Up to level 75 now. It seems the game has become a bit of a production line, master romancing species one after another, with occasional interspersions of pinata capture or tempting.

Managed to get a Rashberry (two, actually) resident today, and master romanced Lackatoads, amongst other things.

Level 74? 76? Something like that. Unpacked my Fudgehogs and master romanced them, then turned a couple into Parmadillos and master romanced them too. I got a few pinata variants, and “made” two Lackatoads, as well as send loads of pinata off to parties, including several for Langston’s challenges.

Still no Kittyfloss. Again, it wandered round the perimeter of the garden a lot, but refused to come and eat a sparrowmint (which is all I need it to do).

Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise (360)

Level 72 now. Mainly bumped up by master romancing Candaries and Sherbats. Also (finally!) got a Galagoogoo resident, and sent it to a party, which netted me loads of experience points.

Still can’t get Kittyflosses into the garden. I have all the requirements – they just keep wandering past! Did get a Buzzenge to visit, though, and it ate some of my Candaries and Sparrowmints, but didn’t become resident.

Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise (360)

I’m now up to Bill and Ted’s favourite level (69, dudes!), ranking up mainly due to master romancing Doenuts and Shellybeans. I also managed to make a few more pinata resident though – Fudgehogs, Crowlas and Sherbats amongst them – and sent loads of pinata to parties (including some of Langston’s requests).

I don’t seem to be able to coax Kittyflosses or Galagoogoos into my garden, however. I have a load of Mousemallows (for the Kittyfloss) and thousands of tulips and a Moon on a Stick for the Galagoogoo, but all they do is wander round the outside of my garden and never enter. Why?

A bit of a catch-up post this. I’ve played it a lot in the last few days, but haven’t posted. I’m getting quite lax in posting these days, it seems. I’m thinking of packing in the gaming diary entirely and just posting updates on my blog. Maybe. Anyway.

I’m now on level 62-ish. I’ve played online quite a bit, both in other people’s gardens, and also opening up my own. I did have one guy come in and ask “tchoutchou?”, but I had no idea what he meant. I guessed it might be something about trains, so bought one and some track and he sat and played with it for a good half and hour. Amazing.

I’ve also been romancing a lot – Cluckles, Lickatoads, Newtgats, and a few others. I’ve managed wildcards for pretty much every species so far too. I’ve sent loads of pinata to parties (many for Langston’s challenges), and grown pretty much every plant, flower, bush and tree available as well.

Breeding twin wildcard frenzy!

I decided to start breeding Syrupents, but to do that I needed Robeans. But, to breed them, I needed Bispottis. So, I got some Bispottis and set about romancing them. I managed to get a set of twin wildcards, which I named Chas and Not Original Dave.

Then I master romanced the Robeans, using the Bispottis, and then fed the Robeans to my Syrupents, and romanced them too. I got a set of twin wildcard Syrupents (called Robson and Jerome), and a single wildcard Syrupent I forgot to name. In fact, if That Rev Chap is reading, here you go, fella:

In the process of making Syrupents, I also produced a few Twingersnaps, including amazing twin wildcard Twingersnaps! I named those Bastion and Atreyu.

Only managed to gain one level today, although I did do quite a lot. I made a Syrupent resident, obtained some Mousemallows, master romanced Whirlms, and found a few variants and maximum-grew some more plants. I suspect they were all relatively low-level events so barely touched the “petals” required to gain levels.

Oh, and I managed to get myself a set of twin wildcard Whirlms! I named them Richard and Judy.
