I got Nintendogs a few months ago - played it obsessively for a while, then put it down in favour of other things. The impression I've got from other people on the #pokecharms irc channel is that they've done much the same. Frankly, I'm not all that surprised. I was the same way with the GameCube version of Animal Crossing - nice sim, but kinda lonely. Well, it seems to me that what's missing from Nintendogs is the ability to go online. You can play it with friends now, but only DS to DS, which requires that you and your friends all live in the same place. I think it would be fantastic if they released a Nintendogs 2 that could be played through Wi-Fi? I personally think that just adding the Wi-Fi option to it would be enough to justify buying a new game . Add a few more breeds and items, and people would be happy. Of course, they'd have to work out some capability for you to transfer your existing dogs, items and trainer records from the non-Wi-fi game to the new one, but that could possibly be done through DS Download Stations in stores. To be honest, I could probably live with losing my old trainer record if I got some special star or badge on it to say I was a Nintendogs 1 trainer. So has anyone heard anything about Nintendo releasing a Nintendogs sequel? Should I start lobbying them now? ???
