In other words, I think I just got used to him.
And in other words, I got luckier than PC2: mum's character Dom.
But I'm miffed Carmine and Kim died. I spent ages bringing Carmine back, only for the git to get shot in the face. And as for Kim... Hell, I wanted to kill the bastard myself. He kept standing in my way, directly in front of whatever I was trying to shoot.
But the fact his death was stolen from me was annoying.
Mum doesn't like the Berserker: she can't run away from her fast enough.
Viva Pinata is so much fun for a game aimed at kids... but there's no way a kid could appreciate that game. It's more delicate than Sim City, and less easy. (I can finish most scenarios in an hour these days... At least, I could when I spent most lunch breaks doing them.) Its still fun though, if you enjoy feeding Wirlms to Sparrowmints.
I keep wanting to call them Wurmples.
