Pet Society: New Diary feature reveals depth of addiction
This past weekend, a "diary" was introduced in Pet Society. This isn't exactly a book about your pet's innermost thoughts and desires. It's more of a scoreboard of certain accomplishments. Interesting tidbits include the date your pet was "born," or when you started playing the game.
As with many of the game's new features, there are some kinks to be worked out. Many players have reported errors in gender and birth date. Sushi's own diary shows the correct birthday but wrong gender. He is technically a boy, even though I like to dress him in girls' clothing and make him kiss other cute boys.
Most surprising, however, is the last item called "Times We've Hung Out." I assume this means the number of times I've logged into the game. When I saw this number, it was like a splash of cold water on my face. I had not realized how much of an addict I was until I saw the large number. I'm too embarrassed to reveal how many times I've "hung out" with Sushi in the past year and a half, but I will say that it's probably way more than the times I've played with my real pet, or hung out with my real friends, or showed up for work.
THANK the Holy Rainbow Poo God that other people can't see this diary. Just like a real diary, this is meant to be for your eyes only. But of course, the staff at Playfish who've been compiling all this data, can see it too.
