daughter loves Neopets. Seriously loves them. She's
on the Neopets website quite often. It's quite the
little phenomona, much like Pokemon. The idea is to
raise these little pets and fight them. I think. And
maybe buy stuff for them. I don't know. I don't pay
much attention. I'm
sure she'll be pleasantly excited when I tell her
about this new game coming from Sony and Neopets Inc.
She'll freak when she sees the screenshot of that
Neopet fighting the other Neopet and the other screenshot
of....the hallway! Way to get us excited Sony. Send
a screenshot of a hallway! What a hallway! Woohoo!!
Can't wait to visit the hallway!! I hope that hallway
is in the game or I'll be mighty disappointed.
the looks of the press material, it appears that Sony
has yanked out everything Neopetish from Neopets the
PS2 game and turned it into a fighting adventure game
that only stars two characters. On second thought,
maybe my daughter won't be that impressed. Come to
think of it, I'm not even sure I like that hallway
screenshot any longer either.
