    Wow. I can't believe the speed with which they're churning these games out. Makes me wonder how could the DS's Assassin's Creed manage not to be a puppy game. Assassinz, or more in the manner of this title, My Crusade Shop.

    From what I've played (which is most of them) they aren't at all nintendogs quality. Many are full of bugs and lazily programmed. Hamsterz 2 was pretty good and I loved dolphinz. Other than that... pretty disappointing...

    out of nowhere....
    I don't understand the problem here. Ubisoft are in the business of making money, if this type of game is considered shovelware but it sells then they will sell it. If you had a business that sold stuff and made you money but a percentage of the market didn't like it or despised you for selling it, would you stop making it ? I doubt it. While it still sells, no matter who buys it and for whatever reason they like it ( not everyone likes the same things ) then companies like Ubisoft will continue to sell it.

    Look at this another way. Would you rather that Ubisoft and companies like this didn't sell stuff like this and turn a profit, used that money to help pay for development of other games, ones that you may like. Look at Beyond Good and Evil, a superb game that didn't sell well, for some unknown reason. If games that you consider to be shovelware games didn't exist then there would be no funds to develop games that may be a bit of a risk bringing to market as the sales of them are unknown. Games like these like them or loath them fund other games development, ones you may end up liking, but without the regular income of games like these, the other types of games may never see the light of day.

    You don't like it because of what type of game it is, get over it move on and hope that because of this something you do like - but others may not - may see the light of day.

    Be thankful that the platform is supported with a diverse and eclectic range of software, it could easily go the other way and be starved of titles.

    that's my 2ps or 2cents worth anyway.

    Dolphinz was quite good but not as a pet sim. More of a themepark sim.
