Fantastic Pets Exclusive

Mar 24, 2011

Fantastic Pets is a Microsoft Kinect game that lets you create and play with the cutest or most bizarre pets that you can imagine! The game starts off by introducing you to Dr. Menagerie, your in-game uncle who discovers rare fantasy pets from around the world. He’s gone on one of his expeditions and introduces you to the house computer, Natalie, who will guide you through adopting your very first animal!

Pets Galore

Although there are four animal species in the game (dogs, cats, horses and lizards), you're only allowed to adopt one in the beginning. But you can earn the ability to look after four pets by proving that you have a good companionship with your pet by playing with them.

Talent Shows

One of the unique features of the game is the talent shows. You can compete in talent shows and, when you win, you will be able to unlock new awards, new pet customization options and improve your trainer ranking.

Customize Your Pet

However, the most unique feature of this game is the pets, of course! This is the first time you can customize and play with your pet on screen through the Microsoft Kinect. You can customize the body size, fur texture, color, pattern, feet, horns, eyes, tail, wings, ears of your pet - there's even unlockable “epic” pet skins. Here are just a few, but there are several unique patterns per pet type.

First off is Cyber Dog! He’s found in game by sending Dr. Menagerie off to explore North America:

What you’re refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/LInux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX. Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

No they shouldn't be allowed to play video games.  The best thing for women to do is to go out and settle down with a nice dindu as soon as they reach the age of 18.
