Katamari Playground


The creator of the PS2 cult hit Katamari Damaci (one of the most unique games out there) wants to create children's playgrounds once he's through with the video game industry.  Anyone who has played either Katamari game knows just how whacky and fun these playgrounds will likely be.

All these boring playgrounds around my way! More power to him. You have to go for what you love.

They just renovated the park that I live right next to. Boy, would it be cool if we had Keita Takahashi over here, I'll tell you what!

well "Developers want to come up with fun games but ideas are judged by their sales potential" -- The Man says that.

Yeah. I, too, play the games for hours on end. In fact, I just gathered up all of the presents and cousins last night. So, after god knows how many hours, I can say that I am FINALLY done with We <3 Katamari,

I find myself playing We love Katamari constantly. The orginal is TONS different from the second. The first has basic missions "You must do this to advance to the next level" As apposed to the second one where you have many more levels, all with a different goal (collecting 1,000 cranes, or collecting money to 'save the pandas', or just rolling up every country into a big katamari ). I got the sequal before I got the original, and I still play the sequal more than the first. Even though the creator isnt happy with the second one I find it much better than the first xD

Wolverine, although I probably enjoy the game more than you I agree with you for the most part --  It's not a game that you can really play for hours on end.  But what I find most important about the game is the unique and simplified approach to gaming.  We need more games that can't be pegged into a "genre".

I still can't get into that game.  It's fun for a few minutes but I just really lose interest real quickly.  More a game I respect than enjoy.

Heh, safety is something I didn't really take into account.  Natural selection works best anyway.

I'm sure that the playgrounds will be completely unsafe; more power to 'im.
