The first review is in! Eurogamer reviews Noby Noby Boy
"get2sammyb said:In UK. And now I've read that Eurogamer review it makes more sense. Don't get me wrong - I love the concept but I feel like a little explanation wouldn't hurt. (MILD SPOILER) You get a little quiz at the start which teaches you the controls but you're never once given an objective. And that makes sense given the game has no "objectives" but I didn't even realise you were meant to eat stuff until... well I discovered it by accident."I've been playing it for the last hour and been getting so frustrated with it. I just don't understand what the fuck is going on.You have it already? Where do you live, it's still not up for me!"
The ranking system is awesome though - from what I understand from the review (again it doesn't tell you in game) all of us who own the game are working to unlock the next level? That's brilliantly amazing.
Sadly I didn't play Katamari so this is all fresh to me. It explains things in a very quirky manner -- I just wish I didn't have to rely on a Eurogamer review to understand. Even if that is part of the games charm.
Having said the above negative things though... I really want to go back and play more.
Here's a piccy for the community taken with the PS3's screenshot tool:
Fantastic. Falling in love with this game now. I don't think many will have the patience with it but once you understand your "minor" objective it's just... fun playing around. The price shouldn't put anyone off anyway.
Here's a video also captured with PS3's Youtube video malarky.
"In fact, can anyone suggest some music similar to this? The closest I have is probably Nick Drake's Pink Moon. In fact, I'll stick that on.The song reminds me a little bit of "Dust in the Wind" by Kansas.
Suggestions would still be nice though. :)
PS. I decided not to get this until I've had my full enjoyment of Flower first.
