Masquerade! Paper faces on parade. Masquerade!


Considering that there has been a petition or two asking for a pet system on Gaia for years now, it makes sense why the staff would finally be working on one. I in all honesty am curious to see how they work it and integrate it within the rest of the site.

Hmm what if the rig pets became the pets? Then maybe their ridiculous prices would actually be justified.

See, I was actually curious about how these new pets would affect RIG pets. On one hand, the RIG pets have a lot of variety and were supposed to be a big prize (which "justified" their rarity and price). But these new pets will possibly devalue them with whatever features they make. A possible work-around is possibly being able to "transform" previous pets into these new ones or something. IDK. I would just imagine that maybe some people would want their favorite RIG pet as their official pet as well.

I don't know how I feel about a new pet system. I never really got into Neopets and Nintendogs bored me after 5 minutes. If this new pet system has some pretty good features that integrates the pets with other parts of the site (ex. I really like the idea of your pet following you in Towns 2 for walkies emotion_kirakira ) and of course how the pets look/variety of pets, I could be okay with it. I'm more kind of surprise they're going into a new feature/system instead of expanding the Animated Evolving Pets, since I thought Silver Bells did well. emotion_sweatdrop

I'd only use the pet system if they're like Silver Bells and if they help us around Towns collecting stuff. Unless those two are fulfilled, I wouldn't lay my hands on it.

If I wanted to have a virtual pet, I'd just go to Neopets. Even then, I don't like Neopets...

Ribbit Ribbit...pets? Could be fun. Also it probably would be optional, so if it didn't appeal to you, you wouldn't have to use the feature. Gaia seems to be cool like that about most things. Ribbit, not sure what kind of pet I'd like though.

Perhaps the dragons event was some sort of foreshadowing to the new system. Or the opposite, that the poll foreshadowed the event.

Considering that some kids needed therapy after their Tamagotchi's kicked the virtual bucket, I can't see pets with limited lifespans being a great idea... or will Gaia be using the old "gone to live on a farm" line instead?

Also, fish don't count. They die all the time. ~noms fish and chips~

I think aquariums failed as a pet system but if you think about it, in real life you can have fish and you don't sit there showing them off really. If the pet system is like the aquarium, I'm sure they'll have minigames you can play and ways to earn gold.
Also, it would be pretty cool if I could go into towns and have my pet help me collect bugs, trash, and gold because some of those bugs get annoying trying to catch.

I'd have cats... all cats... They could be put in our houses! A another reason to use the housing system!
I'd like it, but just like the pet games on facebook they'd end up being neglected...

There's no way they'll make a pet that does anything in zOMG. they already made companions in zOMG that do nothing except exist near you.
