    Player 1's Katamari Damacy (PS2)

    [February 5, 2007 11:33:28 PM]
    So I have apparently greatly misunderstood these game log assignments. I am now making my second log for Katamari Damacy. I do not know the results of this but, it is probably better for me to make the second log now then never. I decided to do some of the constellation levels cause i did the moon last time. The constellation levels are different because you are given a set amount of time to collect a specific type of item. I started with the virgo level, because it is a lot of fun to try and roll over as many screaming girls as you can. In these levels it gives you more to think about besides just growing in size, because you also have to go out of your way to pick up the proper items for your constellation, in this first case girls. This includes statues and dolls of girls, all forms count. Unfortunatly my saved score of 161 girls was better than this run's score of 160. So i opted to turn what I collected into stardust. If you do not want to replace your old star records, the game allows you the option of turning your collection into stardust. Next I chose to play the cygnus constellation level, where you collect as many birds as you can. I chose this level because it has my favorite music in the game. I still say that this game has one of the best original soundtracks around. These constellation levels play a little differently because you focused on a specific item and not just growing. This Cygus level is pretty small compared to others and you have to be able to maneuver along small ledges to get bird eggs and not fall. The whole time your collecting bird eggs and birds, and there are plenty of hard-boiled eggs in the level to distract you. I feel this is one of the more difficult levels because the eggs are arranged in difficult to reach places and spread out. You can often fall off the path and waste time trying to collect the birds. I actually did one better than my original record this time, and replaced the star. I got 49 birds compared to my original 48. The king of the cosmos did not neglect to tell me that both were pitiful. The next level i played was the cancer level, where you collect as many crabs as possible. This is a wacky level and it is a little frightening how many living crabs these people have in their home. They have a serious infestation problem. There are crabs walking around with water pistols and a giant crab moving the t.v. around the room. There are also magnets laid out like crab claws on the ground to confuse you. These constellation levels are challenging because your focused on another specific goal and not just height of your katamari. This time i beat my old score again by one crabs this time with 96 of them. I replaced my cancer constellation. This game is a lot of fun and one of the best games out there. The constellation levels add another dimension to the gameplay, and are often much more challenging levels. The katamari series is fantastic.

    For this week's classic game assignment I decided to play katamari damacy. I got this game when it first came out and it is one of my favorites. It is one of the best original concepts for a video game. I have no idea how they came up with this concept, but im glad they did. The opening movie is fantastic and all the music in the game is great. This game has an incredible soundtrack, each song is fantastic and it adds a lot to the unique game. I decided to try the last level, where your goal is to build the moon. I have already beat this level in the shooting star record time, so i have eternal star. This means i can play the level for as long as i want just collecting everything. This takes out the main threat to your gameplay, the timer. In different levels you are given a certain measurement that your katamari must grow to the size of, and you are given a time to do it. If you dont, you have to try the level again. Eventually you learn which items to pick up first and which areas to move to to get bigger. Ive played this game a lot and i think the best level is the moon level, because it allows you to get the biggest katamari. At a point this becomes ridiculous, as it is just you in the ocean, collecting clouds, and searching around the sky for the last tiny islands you may have missed. The physics in this game work well, and i love watching people i picked up, squirming on my katamari. Its also fun to send people flying by hitting them with the katamari. When playing the moon level i started with the small starting area, then moved down to the beach, then the town, then up to the school, then the bigger city, then to the 12m up area, which is conveniently labeled as such, then i moved on to boats, then bigger cities, travelling from city to city across bridges. Eventually i was picking up the land itself, and the odd ring of giant mushrooms that encircles the ocean. I moved on to whirlpools and clouds, and even godzilla. The moon i made was 861m 66cm 3mm. Im amazed at all the different items they put in this game, and the great thing is that everything is able to be picked up, nothing is excluded. The game is so original and the series is fantastic.The multiplayer is pretty simple but can be fun. The controls may be a lil odd to get used to at first but once you get the hang of it, your rolling away.
