Tim Rogers at www.largeprimenumbers.com
serves up a dense, hard-return/nearly paragraph-less review of We Love Katamari, everyone's favorite game of all time. I can't really read through the text since, even for me, the sentences are too long and rambling. To me it looks like dog-hear-speak from the old Far Side comics. But, I managed to pick up a few things:
- Rogers loved the girl who sang "Lonely Rolling Star" (me too)
- Rogers is depressed by the game, whereas I was elated.
- Rogers once liked the band Pizzicatto Five (like me)
- He's excited that the vocalist from Pizzicatto Five, Nomiya Maki, is singing in the new game. (Which I think is super awesome too.)
The review is interesting just to see this person's take on the psychology while playing the game. I admit that it's a lyric and poetic game that conjures complex emotion - so many interpretations are possible, but this guy seems to be a pure cynic. And for that I think he needs to keep his hands off something so wonderful until he's ready to play it right.
