Katamari Damacy is one of the PS2 game classics and I like this game. The game is fun and weird. You need to get drunk or get high to play this game. This game is about rolling up objects, people, animals, or anything to make a star in the sky. Yes, you are making stars because the King of Cosmos got wasted while knocking all the stars out of the sky including the moon. So it your job to make stars go back in the sky and the moon as well. The gameplay is confusing at first, but it is pretty good.
The controls are more confusing than the game. You are using both of the analog sticks to move the ball. At least this game is on the PS2 not on 360. If this game was on 360, the controls will be more confusing and harder. The graphics are alright in this game. They don’t look terrible or great, the graphics looks OK. The soundtracks are happy music. It is pretty good if you are high. The game is great but it is short. That’s OK. It will help you relax. Your kids will love this game as well. You will find this cheap today. So, if you are angry at some of your games today, play this game instead.

Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 is like going on vacation at home. I know Sims 2: Bon Voyage is like that, but this game has pretty sexy girls. This is DOA version of Mario Party. You have jet-skiing, pool hopping, beach flags, butt battle, tug of war, water sliding, volleyball and stuff you play at a casino, like poker, blackjack, roulette, and slot machines. I’m good at poker and blackjack because I’m from the South. We played card games alot. And one more mini game I’m good at is jet-skiing.

This is a Free to Play game, but so addictive. If you have the patience to wait for your three turns, and the strategic mind to hold on to them, you will heartily enjoy this candy match 3 game that takes you around the world. New cities are added as the game is updated and upgraded. There are also tools that you can win or pay for if you don’t have the patience to wait for them to come along in daily events, lottery winnings, or other items.

You start in Sydney, and work your way westward, with various stops along the way in each town as you build up resources, like knowledge, building materials, and luxuries. There are also side puzzles that can help you gain materials by helping out scientists, city engineers, and media personalities. With each puzzle you get three attempts to earn coins to help pay for upgrades, resources centers, and game tools and enhancers. The bright candies are flavours of lemon yellow, cherry red hearts, blue raz triangles, green apple, chocolate octagons, and grape purple squares.

I have played some farming simulations in the past, and many of them have been slow moving, or have time requirements that are just far too unrealistic. Farm to Fork is none of those things, and is one of the most refreshing farming sims I have come across in a very long time. You start off as four fresh young dudes with a failing farm that just needs a new opportunity to get your goods into a new market. One is considering the situation as he checks out the bags of wheat and the loaf of bread he has been nomming on while is buddies are having a spell of financial depression. The light bulb goes on, and soon the farmhouse is a production area where the freshest ingredients right from the farm become bread, salads, and so much more to bring variety to this little farm.

Although I did enjoy the story breaks in the game about the classic hero Jason and his crew from Argos, I found the game to be mediocre, and pretty much a waste of time. The graphics looked washed out instead of classical, and it was hard to determine what icon was what under the foggy mists.

As you went along in the game, you would get gifts from the Olympians, but you had to find their gold icons in the grids to activate them. Hera’s icon was a peacock, Athena’s was an owl, Zeus’ was a eagle, and so on. Often, hunting for these golden birds would distract from the match 3 subject matter of the game itself, and the gift you would receive sometimes would no be worth the effort you put into getting it.
