Katamari Damacy is the ultimate game, your this little guy that rolls suff up into this huge ball, and it's awesome.

how I got it was a different story: I decided, since I wasent doing anything anyway, to go to the mall. I figgured that most people would be at home with their faimiles. I was wrong, the parking lot was almost comepletely full, even the Dillards parking lot, which usually is empty, had some cars in it. So I go through dillards, which is like macy's only with less expensive crap and more crappy crap, and get into the main mall "area" Which is a feat in itself, since the place continuosly loops around and things look similar. Eventually one must wade through the purfume counters to see...ahh...an EMPTY SPACE signifying the mall area!

Our mall has but one floor (or flat) and when you step out of dillards into the mall "area" that particular end of the mall is sort of abandoned with little activity, but i could see ahead, through the atrifical tree planters and the odd car on display, that ahead would be a serious knot of people who had nothing better to do than go to the mall

like me

So, what I set out to do was to go to gamestop to buy a...game or a DVD, diden't matter at the time. gamestop sort of was dropped in overnight and every dork who thinks "wow, the best way to be a game designer is to hang out at game stop, that way i'm HARRD CORRE!!" appears there. Most of "the dorks" are hiding from their moms, who are shopping in Bath and body works. And spend hours fantisizing about that 50 dollars they want to buy that game they want. This is the next generation, a generation that was raised by yi-gi-oh, which is the worst exuse for anime I have seen. Why do they think it's cool? I don't know. Anyways, I get to gamestop and it's fulllllllllllllll of people. Mostly of the dorks I have tried to describe. I find my one sancuary, the Anime section of the DVD shelf. I figure, "these kids are scared of real anime anyway, Ramana 1/2 practically gives off an anti-kid sheild all in it's own." from there I can see it all. Children running through the narrow allys of shelving. All stare blankly at the rack of PS2 games just LOOKING. Sometimes they wander over to the demo PS2 to play a demo game to look "cool"
whatever

I spot the target, the $20.00 steal Katamari Damacy, and snatch it from the shelf. I think about getting "Alien Hominoid" which i heard was awesome, but decide to save money today. Then I wade back to the Anime shelf and ponder my next move.

I start looking at a nintendo DS case, and for 14 dollars, I can get a metal box that holds the thing and makes it impossible to fit in your pocket, so you handle it about, worrying about the possibility of dropping it.

stupid internet kicked me off. wait a moment.

So, I wade through the masses to the checkout line (or queue) and spend 20 minutes behind 2 seperate people who forgot how to use creit cards And trying to look uninterested while my secret crush, Ashely, works the checkout counter 3 feet away from..me!!! I laugh occasionally at the thought of us dating, then ponder the possibilty of shouting "Fire, fire in dillards" so the crowd dissapears and I'm free to buy...

anyway, I bought the game and went home, people suck

I'm just going to add my USD0.02 that Katamari Damacy is an awesome game. I need to badger my friend to let me play it some more on his PS2. [Big Grin]

i gave it to my little brother who said, "What the hell is this?"
Then he referred to it as "some japanese game"

An hour later, he was trying to put stars back in the sky.
