- really boring.
- Not Yet Ready For Prime Time. If it was tested at all, it was tested minimally, on top of the line PCs, with a 100GB ethernet connection to the servers, by someone who was a developer and came into this with all kinds of knowledge about what should and shouldn't be clicked on. It is clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that it wasn't tested any other way.
- Which we ought to get used to, given Gaia's lack of staff, lack of management, lack of funds, and lack of backbone.
- As I wrote in my status: Hey, Gaia? The 90s called. They want their Tamagotchis back.
- How I felt about Tamagotchis in the 90s: boring. Yeah, I had one. I played two games on it. The first one I was really diligent about playing. I got the rare pet who looked like a TV Anchorman. It died. The second time through I wasn't so diligent. I forgot what I got. I didn't care. It died sooner. The Tamagotchi - a rare white cased one - was never turned on again and was given away to Goodwill some years later.
- How I feel about this event: see the above. I have REAL pets. These things aren't pets. They're computer programs designed to make you push certain buttons and click on certain areas of an electronic screen at a given time. It's more like a Skinner Box than interacting with a real, live pet.
- Tic Tac Toe game: hasn't whoever thought this would be "fun" seen the end of "War Games"? (No spoiler. Go see it. Yeah, it's dated. So what.)
- If this is that Gaia is going to turn into, I'm pretty sure I'm going to be looking elsewhere for my entertainment. Because this isn't entertainment.
