I have recently acquired a PS3 and a PSP, so I am going back and playing all the games for them that I meant to, but missed. Unfortunately, I have not actually paid attention to what were good games for these systems. This has led me to pick up two very ill-advised games.
First is “Work Time Fun”, which is anything but. As minigame collections go, it is ass. There’s nothing redeeming. The only reason I bought it was because I thought it was from Lone Sausage, the creators of Dr. Tran, but it turns out that there’s simply a similar looking vietnamese kid on the cover. Bleh.
Next up is Noby Noby Boy. Noby Noby Boy is amazing. Never before has there been a game where the chief, and in fact only, game mechanic is filling up the creators ego. In Noby Noby boy, you play an earthworm-like thing called BOY, and you eat stuff and get bigger. If this sounds like Katamari, you’ve figured out it’s pedigree. About the only thing that Noby Noby Boy has going for it is that, as you grow, your gameplay statistics are uploaded to make the space-earthworm known as GIRL grow. There’s nothing else to do. There’s some cute psychadelic flavor, but if you’ve played the later Katamaris you’ve already gotten your fill of such. That’s all there really is to it. It’s a wank-fest for Keita Takahashi.
