    Hmm I don't get this. It's great fun for farting about in for ten minutes or so but is there really no aim to the game?

    It's really all about stretching the boy and farting stuff out of his arse?

    No, silly. It's all about testicle-chinned men riding eagles, floating unicorn sharks, men dancing on top of giant cats, unicycle riding dog men who live on the moon, and royalty consisting of frogs, lions, and cats.

    And stretching the Boy and projectile shitting.

    The thing I love about it most boabg is that there *is* nothing to do. Its hard at first to get past the lack of objectives but once you do and start setting your own (dragging clouds to the ground, taking all the pigs and farm animals into space, trying to eat gaint chimney stacks...) you will get immersed in the pointlessness of it all.

    Nearly have all the Trophies for this now, only missing the prince one and the one where you have to make your arse big but keep your head small (I have no idea how this is done?)

    lol... I pretty much don't buy games without being able to play them first, ever, but the Noby Noby quick look over at GiantBomb was so utterly strange that I just have to go and get the game now.

    I'm still not hooked. I'm not enjoying it to play anywhere near as much as everyone else, and it doesn't hold a candle to Katamari for me.

    Perhaps I need more structure than I realised.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    I encountered the most bizarre mix of characters yet on my trip to the Moon, including the top ten ranking characters from before we reached the Moon. Except the Lion King had a brother whose head had been replaced with a Narwhal.

    I'm currently attempting to make a custom soundtrack but my musical tastes aren't very Noby Noby I've had to limit selections to slower tracks by The Fall and Wire, the drifting formlessness of Bella Lugosi's Dead seems to work quite well. Some sort of ponderous, prog-rock Psychedelia fits the bill, the first and only time I've wished I owned some Hawkwind Cds.

    Early Orb albums are the ticket!

    What's the best method for bringing clouds to the ground? Is it to simply grab hold of it and then reel it in by shrinking?

    Christ... I forgot how shitty the PSN download speeds are for me. 20min so far and it's only 50% done. Should have been done in less than 5 mins on my connection, and that's being generous.

    Wait you are downloading this but not Flower? Or have you got around to that by now. :)

    I'm not buying flower until it's on offer or I can play a demo.

    That has to be the strangest fucking thing I've ever played.

    At one point I was trying to get into the manual and controlling boy at the same time... some freaked out screen covered in stars and odd music showed up. I feel like I need to take something mind altering right now. \o/

    My standpoint is hardly unreasonable. Timed / 1 level (or however much is appropriate) demo, which as you well know any dev worth their salt could have done in no time at all. If the price drops (temporarily or not, I don't care) then I'll buy it. But the price is too high right now for it to be something I'd just grab on a whim.

    Not to mention that I didn't enjoy Flow... which doesn't fill me with confidence about this game. (On a vaguely related note I didn't enjoy Pixeljunk Eden which everyone seems to rave about too)

    I just found something amazing thanks to the Giant Bombcast.

    If you eat a human and then something like a lion or a piece of fruit, then shit it out, you'll get a hybrid. So far I've had a pixie with a orange for a head, and a lion man.
  • Deleted user 25 February 2009 19:04:02
    Downloaded this earlier, will contribute some stretching later tonight, I'm looking forward to playing this very much.

    Yeah the whole combination thing is plenty of fun, I knew about it thanks to someone in this very forum talking about it a number of pages back.

    I like parsnip heads. Or spacemen with frog faces.

    What?
    It's great!
    Played for an hour with a smile on my face, how do you ride cars, or unicycles or cows though?
    People and cows ride me, and I like doing it but I want to catch a lift too.

    You don't deserve the game then. Give me your PS3 and let me enjoy it for you ;-)

    How do I make a custom soundtrack fo the game, what do I call the playlist?
  • Deleted user 26 February 2009 02:46:56
    Oops ok, thanks.
    Will the game music stop playing?
  • Deleted user 26 February 2009 02:52:25
    Great, cheers.
    Fook knows what'll work best, I like Autechre but that might be too freaky.

    Try some CiM, a bit more like earlier Autechre with the emphasis on the mellow as opposed to rhythmically intense whoa-fest.

    I feel your pain, but it was only 3 quid.

    I said to the wife that I was going upstairs to play Noby Noby Boy. She thought I was being rude. Strange woman.
