Would you believe me if I told you I've snapped more screenshots while playing Tomodachi Life than I have while playing any other 3DS title?
Well, it's true. Or at least I think it is.
As for why that is, the only worthwhile response is that this portable "life sim" throws players into so many weird, wacky and funny situations that you can't help but try to capture them in a snapshot.
Cases in point: the following photos of the babies that have been born to Rainbow Island's residents thus far.
The above portrait is of one of my Internet pals, Hayden Scott-Baron (aka docky), his wife, Cher, and their newborn girl, Chloe.
The shot above is of Nikki (of Swapnote fame), her husband, Bill Trinen, and their baby girl, the controversially named Genesis.
And here (above) we see Link keeping a watchful eye on his (and wife Zelda's) adorable baby boy.
Sadly, "adorable" isn't the first word I'd use to describe the first child--a girl, Claire--born to me and Ganondorf.
Both of us are hoping she'll eventually grow into her face. And learn to smile once in a while. Anyway, she's now traveling the world--or waiting to travel the world, at least.
Rainbow Island's kids aren't the only things worth capturing in photographs. Other photo-worthy sights include the tropical locale's many fights--with the one above being between former Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi and Metroid's Samus Aran.
The island has been host to many proclamations of love, too, such as the one above, from David Bowie to Albert Einstein. (Unfortunately for the former, the latter demurred in the end.)
There have been a number of just plain odd proclamations as well, such as the ones above and below.
The two residents showcased in the above snapshot, by the way, are none other than Madonna and Michael Jackson.
Speaking of well-known or even "celebrity" Rainbow Island residents, the photo above highlights those who made a name for themselves in various big-name games (or big-name pieces of game-related software, in the case of the aforementioned Nikki).
A number of real-life game developers and executives also call Rainbow Island home, including the ones shown above.
And then there are the island's "pop star" residents, as seen above. Can you name them? If so, please feel free to do so in the comment section below. (One little hint for those of you who may need it: the redhead's usually a blond.)
Have any of you also been enjoying--and taking tons of screenshots while playing--Tomodachi Life? If so, which aspects of it do you like the most at the moment?
