I'd long heard the praises of this game from various sources (like BoingBoing) and when I finally got a PS2 (yes, I live in the dark ages), this was the first game I had to try on it. The concept is wacky, which I'm not sure is because the game is wacky or if there's some kind of cultural disconnect between Japan and the U.S., but I have to give the game points for uniqueness. Seems that the King of the Universe did a little too much partying and has scattered things to multiple corners of the universe …

I've never done acid, or any other drugs. In fact, I get annoyed when people look at something beyond the standard range of creative and their first thought is "I wonder what drugs they were on?" However, after playing this game I think I think I may have to revise my opinions on the matter. Describing this game as "weird" is to do an injustice to the word. When a game contains scenes with a Japanese schoolgirl saying things like, "I feel it! I feel the cosmos!" you know has to be inspired by far …

When out shopping, I kept seeing a game called "We Love Katamari". I looked on the back of the package and I'm thinking "Rolling up stuff with a ball?

Pros: Taking on Godzilla head-to-head..... And winning!     Cons: Will someone PLEASE turn that damn beeper off?!     The Bottom Line: Round and round I go! Where I stop, no one knows!     God bless those designers from the Land of the Rising Sun. Somehow, only a Japanese designer could come up with a concept so simple, so stupid, and so foolishly and outrageously absurd that it becomes the latest sleeper - and one of the most addictive …

Pros: Addictive, great soundtrack, easy to pick up and play, inexpensive     Cons: Multiplayer was disappointing     The Bottom Line: I liked it so much that I've given it as a gift, and I'm sure you will too!     I should be almost embarassed to say this, but I work at a video game store and I own less than 20 games total, something made more embarassing by the fact that I own five systems. I drool over everything but rarely buy. A lack …
