I was just wondering if anyone has an xbox 360 and if so have you ever heard of the game viva pinata? I thought it was some sort of cheesy kids game but it's actually a gardening game. It's a lot of fun too. You start from scratch and as your garden grows you attract animals (pinata's) based on what you have growing. Then you get the animals to have babies and as you progress through the game you get more variety of seeds, tools, and more garden space as a reward for being such a great gardener. The animals even have fights and there are bad ones you have to try to keep out of your garden. Because they are pinata's, when they die they turn into candy. Some of the details of the game are little cheesy but I think it's a neat game. Has anyone else played this game?

Viva Pinata is a how my brother (7) watches...its about pinatas on a magical island who eat plants to get fat (the plants miraculously turn into candy inside them lol) and once they're fat enough they get blasted off to a birthday party to be broken. Somehow they return and the cycle starts again...sounds a bit weird to me...the whole show that it

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. Mary Ann LaPensee

Suuure, thats why you're on an Xbox as I type this ;)...

Viva Pinyata has several varients (I think they have 3 out now?) for the xbox; my ex used to play it a lot till she got bored with it... I always thought it looked kind of fun, but it's been collecting dust forever lol...

(Wonder if I'm going to get yelled at for posting in a 2 year old topic that was effectively dead)

No, Loz, I don't do online play. I thought this was an old post but I didn't realize how old! How did you find it? And what sparked you to resurrect it?

James is probably just picking on me because I just got my xbox. He had to throw it in my face that I said I was a loyal PS fan. lol Not anymore, Xbox ROCKS. And the whole dashboard changes when you become a live player. It's so much better and cooler. And now I can play games against my brother. grin

Yep, my county has about 30 games in the library system. How cool is that?

Yup :)... BTW, the dashboard changes because of the "Xbox new experience" rolled out last summer, i think it only downloads once it connects to the update server; not sure how often it does that, but it should update for silver accounts as well.

That's sweet, I may have to go see if they show them on our library's computers
