Eurogamer: Noby Noby Boy Review

Eurogamer writes: "You might think that, without objectives or rewards and with no sense of progress, time spent with Noby Noby Boy would soon become aimless and boring. You would - wonderfully, surprisingly - be wrong. By giving you such limitless possibilities, such an improbable plaything and such an anarchistic playground, Noby Noby Boy inspires creativity, curiosity and simple, careless glee".

Sony is bringing awesome titles to the PSN!

sonarus3314d ago

Fat Princess will be the icing on the cake. You should hook me up with flower by the way:D

I really was not expecting that, indeed Sony is bringing that PSN quality way up. Now I'm interested to c what other reviewers are going to say. Dang now I can't wait to download it.

"Using the Sun as an intermediary, you can report the total number of metres you've stretched BOY to GIRL, who will grow by the same amount. It won't get her far - but everyone else playing the game is doing so too, and it's the cumulative amount of stretching done in Noby Noby Boy by PS3 users across the world that drives GIRL's voyage into the stars.

Eventually - Takahashi reckons it will take players a couple of weeks - she'll link Earth to the Moon, and then Mars. (Who knows if more planets in the solar system could be added at a later date?) Once she's got that far, these celestial bodies can be visited, bringing new sets of maps with even crazier toys and even stranger inhabitants. GIRL also serves as a global high-score table, ranking every player by the amount they've contributed to her solar-system-spanning stretch. Every ranked player gets their own procedurally-generated, yet unmistakably Takahashi-designed, avatar perched on GIRL's back, and there's a plethora of stats and records to browse. You can take video footage and upload it directly to YouTube, too."

Sorry for the wall of text taken from the review - but all that sounded too awesome to paraphrase :)

Sounds like a brilliant game.

I will, we will talk tomorrow about it

WOW! I've watched a few gameplay videos of this so far and I'm nothing if not confused. But, I like the designer (Katamari was cool), and it's only 5 bucks, and this review is a VERY high score from Eurogamer... so... uh, yep I'll be buying this tomorrow evening and finding out what it's really all about.

I called it just a few hours ago and yet i'm still stunned especially coming from Eurogamer.

Cajun Chicken3314d ago

Good lord! And to think I was so sceptical about this game! Shall get when it hits internationally tomorrow!

Endorphin3314d ago

I loved Katamari, so I was going to get this regardless, but I also expected it to be rated in the low 50s and 60s coming from eurogamer dang that surprising. Good call rucky!

Coconutz9193314d ago (Edited 3314d ago )

Wow! I did NOT see this coming! This just turned into a day one buy for me...

TheIneffableBob3314d ago

Only $5? I thought it'd sell for much higher than that considering its quality.

PirateThom3314d ago

I wish they'd just upload it now, I want to play it and figure out what the hell is going on.
