Katamari Damacy

Chris gave a nod to Final Fantasy's Geomancer in honor of Earth Day, which I thought was an original choice. It got me thinking about games that are ever so vaguely related to the celebration. I'm sure you have one in mind. ...

I don't know if controllers will cut it after watching the unabashed joy on the faces of folk playing Katamari Damacy with a yoga ball turned controller while the screen is projected onto the side of a building. The video co...

I LOL'd.

And this is the premise behind Touch My Katamari. The King of All Cosmos must prove that he is awesomer than that little kid's school principal. At least that's what I hope the premise is really all about, because that would...
Goro is...well, he's a lot like me. He's a gamer, slacker, and internet addict, though my head quite isn't as long as his. You'll see in this new trailer for upcoming Vita game Touch My Katamari that during one of his strugg...
Everybody loves Katamari Damacy, right? Keita Takahashi’s silly, quirky creation -- classified by publisher Namco Bandai in the genre of “rolling action” -- is, by now, a beloved series. But for many fans, t...
Well, it's as classy as billiards trick shots in soft focus set to piano music can get. That's pretty classy for anything related to the Katamari games from Namco Bandai. ... Okay, so it's not classy at all. But it's hilario...
Namco Bandai released the opening cinematic for Katamari Damacy No-Vita (Touch My Katamari in the US and Europe), coming to PlayStation Vita. You can watch it. The King of all Cosmos has some serious moves. It's ea...

The Katamari Damacy title for PlayStation Vita has been given a rather amazing name: Touch My Katamari. Better yet, the game will be available on February 22 alongside the PlayStation Vita's debut in North America, Canada, Eu...
Last night, a number of PlayStation Vita launch titles were priced for Japan, bringing with it the good news that digital versions will be cheaper than physical versions -- something that the PSPgo utterly failed to do. A num...

Although, technically, the Prince would eventually roll you up in his Katamari regardless of you being a dick to him. Still, you might get to enjoy life a little longer if you let the Prince roll along in peace.
It's clear from this panel at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival that the creators of the hit show Adventure Time really loves videogames. There are a lot of name drops here in terms of gaming's influence on the show; Zelda, Ma...

Keita Takahashi, the mad genius (he's at least one of those things all the time) behind Katamari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy left Namco Bandai some time ago, apparently bored with game development. Rumor was that he ha...
Keita Takahashi may be famous for making bright, happy games such as Katamari Damacy and Nobi Nobi Boy, but the quirky developer has a bleak and depressing view on the future of the games industry. In fact, he doesn't think h...

Did you enjoy last week's Once Upon a Pixel episode? Want some insight as to how and why I created the dark world that Death Ball takes place in? If the answer to either of these questions is "no", then maybe you haven't seen...
