Buttons has seemed rather bored as of late, and has taken to attacking random objects around the house. A quick stop to the pet store across the way found us this wooden green thing with little faces that pop out of it. It being wood means he won’t tear it to shreds in a week, and so it was an instant purchase.
And while he was pushing it around the floor, I suddenly thought, “Wait a minute, that looks like a Katamari…”, which then turned into “WHERE IS MY CAMERA?!”.
For those who haven’t played it, Katamari Damashii (or Damacy) is widely being hailed as Sleeper Hit Game Of 2004. Available for your PS2 for a whopping $20 and obviously from Japan, it is a pure joy to play. If you haven’t picked this up yet, do it soon – it’s becoming increasingly hard to find.
Here’s to hoping there’s a US release of the soundtrack as well, as it’s one of the most interestingly diverse game soundtracks to hit in a while.
