OK, it is confession time.
I am now officially obsessed with a video game. That's right, I am. Me. I know it's hard to believe, but it is true. Obsessed. OCD. And the "D" is for "Damacy."
It all started with a shirt.
I saw it at WonderCon and had to buy it for M. It's an ostrich- how could I resist? Ostriches are awesome.
Then, M then mentioned it was actually from a video game. Well, I guess that makes sense. I mean, why would you have an ostrich shirt at a giant nerd convention? (Um, why wouldn't
you?) In this video game, the Prince of the Universe rolls up all sorts of objects using a very sticky ball. A very tiny Prince, a very sticky ball, and objects ranging from paperclips to buildings to cities- progressively bigger and bigger, until you roll up all of the earth, the solar system and everything.
I thought that was really cool. This is where things get ugly.
M decided it would be a good idea to bring it home. One day this unassuming little plastic box shows up. It is "My Beautiful Katamari" for the xbox, he rented it from work. Just to show me. Little did he know that what would grow from that box would be an all consuming obsessive beast, not unlike the katamari itself.
It is so cute! It makes no sense! You just roll around picking things up with your ball. All things. Everything

This is way better than Tetris. And if you don't believe me, just visit their website
