Truthful Videogame Boxes

Does "Katamari Damacy" really translate to "Magically Adhesive Ball of Garbage"? Maybe it should -- at least you'd know what you're getting.

Imagine the tears and effort that would be spared if your local Gamestop carried games that truthfully declaimed their content, such as Fanboy Bullshit VII and Roster Update NFL 2006.

Thanks for that link...much better titles.........Can I suggest Counterhack as opposed to Counterstrike? Never played that one, but from what i hear of the servers..... ;-)

i'm getting the sense that you don't care for the game. a friend introduced me to "katamari d" when i was high as a kite and lord above help me if i don't think that it's literally the funnest game an uncoordinated, non-gaming, psuedo-geek like myself can ever hope to play. i am far, far below you in terms of anything digital, but let me just say this, a star is not an easy thing to make.

Oh, don't misunderstand -- I love Katamari Damacy. It's one of the few games me and The Boyfriend have played to the end.

It's just frustrating trying to explain to someone what the game is, and "magically adhesive ball of garbage" (or sumo wrestlers, or office buildings) is a tad more descriptive, if unlovely. :)

And I'm convinced the developers were high as the proverbial kites when they *made* it, too...

Only posers like Fanboy Bullshit VII. The critics and the public were fooled by the PlayStation's fancy 3d graphics.

But everybody knows that Fanboy Bullshit VI (Originally released as Fanboy Bullshit III in the US) is way better, even with the Super Nintendo graphic and audio engines.
