Most games that I remember from years past are the classics known for their great game play. I can confidently say that's not the case for this game. The crazy nature of this game, from animation to concept, is definitely what has kept it in my mind all these years.
Katamari Damacy Reroll is one of those games that for some reason I could never get out of my head. I only played it once many years ago when I was visiting a friend who had a hacked Wii and had a ton of strange games from Japan. So when I stumbled across it in EBGames' used game section I was extremely excited! I didn't even realize that it had come out for the Switch!
If that opening scene wasn't enough of a hint at how ridiculous the game can be just play a little and you'll soon realize that the opening scene is a perfect representation of the whole game.
The whole point of the game is that your father, the creator of the universe, has destroyed all the stars in the sky. In order to get them back you need to roll up larger Katamari's (the ball that you're rolling) that are turned into stars IF you meet the requirements.
While the storyline of the game may not be the most captivating thing I've played, the game play itself did manage to keep my attention the whole way through. The breakdown of each level is basically just to roll a big enough Katamari (ball) to pass in the allotted timeframe. That being said each level does offer a new set of challenges whether it's the location, environment or starting size. There was a couple of levels that I got stuck on and found myself thinking about how I can get past them even while trying to sleep.
Even with the struggles I did come across completing this game it still took me under a week to complete the whole thing. For a full priced game that would not be ok in my books but luckily it only cost about a third of what most games on Nintendo Switch tend to run. That plus the fact that I can say without question that I will play it more in the future makes me feel content with the purchase. Especially since there is a multiplayer mode that I have yet to delve into. (it appears to be a "get bigger than your opponent first to roll them into your Katamari).
So, with trying to make sure I take out my personal memories around the game, I think it's something worth picking up.
Would I suggest paying more than $30 for it? Probably not. Mainly because of how short the game is more than anything really. It's a fantastic time waster that is super easy to pick up and pause whenever. Overall I wouldn't say go hunting for it but if you happen to find it in store make sure you grab it.
There's a lot to take in from any E3 event. We've attempted to wrap up Nintendo's showcase is an easy to scroll through format for you to see what catches your eye! Keep checking back to see updated information about each game as it's released.
No Man's Sky. This game has gone through hoops to get to where it is today. Having managed to survive the initial flood of (well deserved) poor reviews, they are now in a position to turn that on it's head. Nothing like the original release, NMS is a game that might just eat up every spare second you have.
Ever fancy yourself maybe building games? Perhaps you've thought about it but never looked into how to get started? Well Nintendo has you covered with their latest release! Game Builder Garage! Game Builder Garage Done in classic Nintendo fashion this "game" walks you through the game creation process.
We all knew it was coming and finally Nintendo has confirmed it. Although they are still pretty tight lipped on what exactly the newest Switch will be called. Hopefully they learned from the ridiculous naming mistake of the Wii U. Nintendo recently started spending more on R&D saying it was for “the next platform”. Now
Now I don't talk about DND much on here and I have never talked about anything that is on Kickstarter but this project warranted a mention. Dungeon Full Dive: Make your tabletop world real! looks like an unbelievable possibility coming to PC and VR. Just watching the video gets me excited about playing a game with frie
Not only due to Covid keeping people at home but for so many other reasons Mario Party has not had the option to play against people who aren't sitting right next to you. I guess Nintendo Finally realized that they were failing badly at the "Party" side of Mario party and have updated the issue! Battle your friends to find out who really is the super star.
Although Super Mario Sunshine has been around for a while it still has a large following. Whether you love the game, hate it or haven't played it still plays a major role on the development of the Mario universe. The real question here is, does it hold up to the test of time?
Playstation has come out with everyone's best interests at heart. Our wallets. With the free release of 10 games for both 2D and the VR experience you're sure to find something that interests you. Assuming that you play Playstation that is.
I spent a lot of time looking into what games were worth spending money on for my VR headset. After a lot of time looking into what was out there and testing out a bunch of free ones I landed on BeatSaber being my first real purchase.
Free games tend to be a large hit or miss market. There are some out there that are far too fun and should be charging something. While others aren’t worth the time it takes to download them. Bait is something that falls into the category of being worth the effort.
The initial hurdles of getting into the system can be frustrating. Honestly something that I found a little frustrating was attempting to read my WIFI password and enter it into the VR headset although I can only see where I am typing when I have the headset on. Aside from that the main struggles were just related to learning how to properly function with a headset on. The controls are very comfortable and easy to use making the process easier. After getting past that I got sucked into using the headset way way too much.
With the latest update to Stardew Valley there’s more reason than ever to get back into the game! Especially if you own it on console. SPLIT SCREEN CO-OP!!!!! This was a long time coming but even so I still am taken back by how much extra enjoyment is added to the game by playing it split screen with my partner.
Looking for a mobile game that not only has massive draw but will also get you out of the house? Something that you can play with others and even meet new people through? Ingress from Niantic is the game you're looking for.
There are a few games that are a major part of my childhood and Mario 64 is one of the top games of the “throwback” category to me. I remember spending hours trying to get through the simplest of tasks and I'm glad to say that as an adult the game is not so intimidating. Updated with smoother controls really elevates the gameplay to something a lot more enjoyable.
So a review of this game would be kinda absolutely useless based on the age of it. It’s been out forever so instead it lands as a Throwback to all those old games that bring back wonderful childhood memories. Much like Super Mario 64, I recall playing Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 obsessively as a child. Although it might not hold up as well as some games, the nostalgia is always nice.
