Katamari Damacy: The ultimate murder simulator?

7:08 PM on 05.18.2008 // The GHost

[Editor's note: I lol'ed. -- CTZ

Horrifying. Malicious. Vile. An accurate representation of the real world. TERRORIST TRAINING TOOL.

These are just a few of the words that come to mind when thinking of the worlds most dangerous murder simulators, a series of "games" that were clearly not so much made by a developer as they were crafted by the combination of madness and pure hatred of a greater daemon from the darkest, most evil reaches of space and time.
Don't let the colorful exterior fool you into thinking that these "games" are anything but the most devious torture simulations and terrorist training tools ever devised by anyone who has ever devised anything. These "games" start innocently enough; just pick up things like tacks and erasers to create a larger "Katamari" (a word that I'm sure actually means "Ancient Evil Engine Of Doom"), and you might even be tricked into thinking that these "games" merely simulate the wholesome act of cleaning ones domain, but soon enough things take a turn for the EVILER. Read more after the jump.

Once the murder simulator has effectively trained you to use your "Katamari" to selfishly horde small inanimate objects, you begin to pick up small animals; animals that have done nothing to you and wish only to exist in peace. However, once you have begun to walk the path of darkness there is little you can do but to lose yourself in the madness and hate for all living things that these murder simulators exude at every turn.

Once you've been trained to ignore the screams of small animals as you "roll them up" (a thinly veiled drug and beastiality reference) the murder simulator becomes even more murdering and simulatory by allowing you to finally feed the ancient evil Gods that you no doubt will be worshiping at this point, by giving you a "Katamari" large enough to pick up HUMAN BEINGS.

Not content to just pick up humans, the first target of your rampage are mere CHILDREN, simply because they are the least resistant to your rolling ball of death and destruction. Their screams echoing out across the landscape as one-by-one you harvest their bodies to further fuel your vile campaign of murder.

Eventually your "Katamari" grows to such a size that you begin to roll up entire buildings, the screaming occupants of which are left to tumble around endlessly, no doubt receiving wounds the likes of which make them envy those that are already dead. Not content to stop there, the murder (or should I say apocalypse?) simulator then has you consume entire landmasses and continents, leaving nothing but a terrible and final silence in your wake.

And what fate befalls those that survive being rolled up? Their reward is to be ejected into space like so much human detritus, becoming another celestial body made of pain and suffering, that will no doubt house an ancient God that will erect a kingdom of blood and bone, fueled by malice and terror.

Who would demand such mindless chaos and destruction?


That's right, the one that sends you on your terrible quest is none other than your father, possibly Satan himself poorly disguised as a human, claiming to be "The King Of All Cosmos".

What does this make you? Your father is Satan, and you are constantly referred to as the "prince". This means that you must be...


I rest my case with a simple plea:


Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go draw some conclusions from Viva Pinata regarding its use as a tool for spreading communist propaganda.

Bought my first full-priced physical 3DS game ever - New Style Boutique 2: Fashion Forward. I'll try to write a post on the previous game at some point before doing the same with NSB2.

Bayonetta 2 is 40% off in the EU Nintendo eShop today. If you have a WiiU and don't have this game you are a horrible person and I want nothing to do with you. You can amend your errors by buying it. Xenoblade Wii is also 50% off as well.

My dreams are really weird and scary, so I hope it's okay if I let them be dreams.

Finally played the last two Shantae games. Risky's Revenge wasn't bad, but Pirate's Curse was damn good.

Memo to self: spend your time cleaning before wasting ten or so hours on a cblog you'll end up just scrapping because you're incompetent and incapable of writing on the subject.
Is there an occupation out there for people who want to give up and not worry about shit for a while until they can recompose themselves before going back into society?

While I am glad I only paid $15 for it, I bought J-STARS VS+ for one specific reason: to drink some beer and kick ass as Yusuke and Hiei. And in that regard, it delivers. Beer not included.

We can be so weird sometimes. You can easily move on from some of the stuff you might want to remember forever, but then sometimes you just can't let go of trivial things. What's up with that?

My "Thankful it's over" post is done. Editing it tonight, posting tomorrow. Will there be more last-minute entries? Will Pixie be merciful to Twilight Princess? Will Zetta add words to his entry? Why is bear driving? Who run Bartertown? Stay Tuned!
