Chu-Chu-Chu, Chu-Chu, Chu, Chu-Chu-Chu!

I was introduced to a new game this Sunday, Katamari Damacy, in which a bunch of ducks (of two different flavors even) sing the above line. It’s the funniest computer game I’ve seen in a while: The King of All The Universe goes on a bender and breaks the moon and stars, about which people are understandably upset, and tells you, the Prince of All The Universe, to go gather enough stuff with your rolling sticky marble (Katamari – and yes, you can get to the point where you are rolling up giant octopuses) so he can remake the stars. Of course, you (being only the Prince of All The Universe) are only 2cm tall so you have to start little. Pins, pieces of candy, thimbles, needles, ants the like stick to your rolling sticky marble until its big enough to pick up oranges, mushrooms, frogs, small flowers and mice. Eventually you wind up picking up buildings, bridges, barges, Godzilla and islands. Crazy! You can even pick up people (and they make the BEST noises when you roll them up).
