Well, technically it knows when the predetermined amount of time it takes to bake a cake has passed or not.

Tamagotchi had a reset button for the same reason..

I'm sorry, we're baking up.

Ahaha!  People engage in these virtual relationships because the are too lazy to put in the effort to form real relationships.

This is perfect!

No, you can't just sit around taking a multiple choice test to get the girl.  You have to do some actual work!

That was a horribly depressing article.

I did feel a little like a monster. But it was always offset by how much of a pain it was to get to the button..

Don't forget how damned annoying those things were.

That might be the most disturbing thing I've read regarding a video game in my life.

I've never been  that  lonely, and that's considering I spent the last four years of my first marriage without having any sex whatsoever.

I got one from the iTunes store, and was quickly reminded how farking annoying those things were.

For a virtual girlfriend, she sure is a needy biatch.  No, I'm not baking you a cake.  I'll be happy to buy a real girlfriend a real cake because it will be much better than anything I can make.

A long time ago I did make a girlfriend a chocolate mousse.  She was a chocoholic so it was a good way to impress her.

Yeah, but Hate Plus is really good. A weirdness like screwing around with telling you to go make a cake and the forced timer makes the game different and can build the feeling of a journey and nobody cares. Oh well.

/I am aware that my blog sucks.
//Have the achievment.

The cake is real. The girlfriend is a lie.

She is NOT a lie! She lives in Canada! We met at camp!

I hate to be the one to tell you this, but as a friend I feel I need to.

You need to get your girl in check. She's been sleeping all over town.

I may be horribly alone, but I will never reach the levels of despair that the Japanese seem to achieve.

That is sad and disturbing and hilarious.

I think it's funny, and instead of being disturbing or sad, it's a better use of someone's time than 99% of all other time wasted playing games. At least they're learning a decent skill.

Are you sure she just didn't want to date the Pistons?

I actually want to get this game just so I can get this achievement now.

/the fact that I love baking cakes has nothing to do with it at all
//also put batteries in my tamagotchi the other day, but that's just because I found the batteries for the damn thing

desertgeek: That might be the most disturbing thing I've read regarding a video game in my life.


Nah, what's really disturbing are the 2D fetishists this game pokes fun at. They've been baking cakes and such for years, without prodding from the game to do so.
 
2013-08-23 09:03:47 AM  
That's actually kinda cool.  Sure it's just running on a timer but it's still a cool little addition.

Actually, I found it rather affirming; I'm pathetic, but I'm not that bad.
