Nintendogs USA release.

Nintendogs is hitting the US on 26th this month, and seeing the huge reception it had in the land of the rising sun, I and interested in how many people hear are planning on getting any of the 3 versions of this game, i'm interested because it is in my opinion the first of the promised influx of games hitting western gamers this half of the year.? (...Crank up the Hype Machine....)

I'm not getting it. I can't see myself enjoying a pet simulation game, no matter how much hype it gets.

For me the great lineup starts with Lunar Dragon Song on 9/20.

It seems like a good game for a kid to get if they aren't allowed to have real pets. I myself would probably only get it if I've boughten every DS game made.

Its cheaper for me to scoop a stray dog off the street and train it to kill other dogs in the neighborhood for sustinence. The japanese have hyped up some really retarded game sensations in the past, this is just another one Im not going anywhere near.

I want it, but it is nothing I am in a hurry to. I will more then likely get Advanced Wars DS instead.

I have a dog, and I don't really like taking it for a walk (unless it's to try get a conversation going with the female gender)

I'd rather just buy a real game instead of a pet sim, thank you Nintendo.

I most bless Nintendo and get all three of them.
I learned my lesson; I will not miss a lot of games then regret it later. I also don't waste my money on drugs like Alcohol or any kind of these only for idiots stuff.

Best for those that have alergies or have parents that are too protective. Don't let the lil children grow up not knowing and only hatin'. Either way, I said yes...but most likely won't buy it because of my obvious hate for all living things...damn super fast....super strong...killer trout...

People who say this game is not a real game are *******s who know nothing about the game. People use the concept of it being a pet simulator over all else, INCLUDING it being very well-made. Probably more than a lot of games. And it's not some pretty Tamagotchi - it's a very well-developed legitimate game. The dog responds perfectly to voice commands, even those such as a made up name, where the dog will learn that the name you're applying to him is his name. He learns how to sit, beg, etc. through voice commands, and in him learning these skills, he is more likely to win the dog contests, which are more than just side minigames, because they require skill from your dog that is learned from your raising him.

And yes, I'll be buying it.

Also, on a side note, this would also be perfect for those who are allergic to dogs or live in apartments that don't allow dogs.
