I'm going to be a jerk and point out the syntax mistake in the video heading. Just gonna be that guy.

EDIT: Man, the music is fantastic! If only I could make stuff half that good...

I wish Jeff would touch me like he touches that Vita.

Sticky balls.

I...don't even know what to make of this game...it's ridiculous in all the best ways possible..

Edited by RE_Player1

This will be my first Katamari game so with the majority of the complaints being it has been done several times already, which it has looking at the franchise page, it will be a somewhat new experience for me. $24.99 isn't bad for this game.

Jeff certainly touched the Katamari

Hmmm...most of what I've seen from the vita looks like something I would buy for $15-20 through their online marketplace.

Than I think about the cost of the games and a large memory card on top of the cost of the device it makes me not want a vita.

Lets see how much money Sony loses with this one.

Man, Katamari is bizarre. I love it.

Wait, what? Are these all real things?

This game should be called "Touch My Enormous Penis".

I liked the original Katamari but...the series never really held interest to me. I liked the first one because of how insane and bizarre it was, but the later games were just more of the same, didn't really hold that interest quite so well.

Still, a good place to put the game for those big fans of the series (and I know there are tons).

@Addfwyn:

Yeah, I'm the same way. I love the first one, I love the idea of the game, aesthetically speaking it knocks it out of the park, but I wished they could figure a way to evolve the game-play to get me excited again.

does not look good

Edited by jasondesante

i never liked thinking about what stuff i was picking it up, i just wanted to pick it up. those themed levels never did it for me.

I would have much rather had the series go in the direction of larger worlds with even some like puzzles with limited items in a big world that you could solve many ways, and the only thinking was about the logic of the environment and where you might something of the size you wanted, not the style of everywhere you go there are tons of things cluttered everywhere. The original was the best.

Anyone else see Kappa round 7:48?

Yeah he first two games were wonderful, but after that they stopped evolving it. The 360 version was horrible, they definitely had a great return to form on the PS3, but it wasn't a big gameplay revolution at all. The 360 version was just gimped.

I love how slowly everyone snaps out of its creepy creepy spell at the end.

Funny, I thought the opposite; Beautiful Katamari had unfair time limits, of course, but it came up with some genuinely creative levels to play around with the Katamari formula, while Katamari Forever was just "more of the same", sometimes literally, with reused levels from previous games.

No? The 360 version has some of the best levels in the series. The PS3 version was, quite literally, a rehash. It reused older levels for the majority of the content and threw in a bunch of filters. I still loved it, but to say Beautiful was the worst and Forever was a "return to form" is crazy.

Did you forget the part where the second half of the game was locked out with DLC unlock keys? That's what I'm talking about. It was like "oh hey I just bought this game, now I have to buy the other half even if I already did and it's on the disc". Not cool. The PS3 version was a rehash, as in yes it didn't offer anything actually new but it still felt like a full package to me, like a good compilation album. Though I only played at a friend's house and the demo. And I'm not really counting any of the portable ones I never played.

While I haven't played some of the newer games I have a lot of respect for this series. I think the King of All Cosmos is one of the best video game characters ever made.

I was not going to buy this game, but the music is so amazing!
