I understand that people spend their weekend playing computer games to beat up a big boss or fight again and again to get a super sword. This weekend, I did the same. Yes I kept on playing all day long. On the other hand, though, I really hate those games. I didn't stop holding the controller and saying "faaaku you!" to the game :-) in a room exposed to the afternoon sun. Basically, I don't like long, big, serious and complicated games. I feel those games exploit the weakness of my addictive nature and invade my weekend. (I found many people complaining that Arc the Lad was "too long fighting!" in Japan. I know my nature, so I took a step back from gaming. If I get a PS2, I would rather play simeple, short, light, funny game like Katamari Damacy.
Anyway one of such simple, silly game would be "Feel the Magic" for Nintendo DS. When I saw their Japanese HP first, I laughed because it's too silly. But it has good reviews in the U.S. Hmm. Yes, actually it is okay to sweat in order to throw up golden fish. :-) If you don't know this, you can see video here. By the way, Japanese original title is "Kimi no tamenara shineru" = "I can die for you". We call the game "Kimishine" for short. I think the original title, "I Can Die For You" is not bad. Why did they change it? Is "I Can Die For You" something strange?
Yesterday SEGA opened the new version of official game site,"Akachan wa dokokara kuruno?" which means "Where Do Babies Come From?".Yep, it looks silly again.
