"Why you try to get crazy with me essee? Don't you know I'm Loco (Roco, out on Playstation Network next Thursday for £2)?"
You heard the man, LocoRoco Cocoreccho will arrive as part of Sony's PSN update next Thursday (Sept 20) for the bargain price of £1.99. As an added little sense of 'gee-golly!' for UK gamers, the UK release is on the same day as the Japanese version, is half the price, and is actually released before the Yankke Blue-Jeans get theirs! European gamers in appreciation shocker!
It's not a fully fledged LocoRoco game, it's actually a screengamething to have running in the background of your PS3 as kinda like an interactive screensaver, but it's essentially got the same goal as the classic PSP game- Eat flowers, grow fat, gather your blobs, squeeze through some damn fun and fine puzzle lands, and headbutt the flying octopusses (octopi? not sure). An interesting difference is that instead of using the L and R buttons, you'll use the sixAxis function of the controller to tilt the world about.
The PS3's sixAxis function has worked best when used simply I've found so far. It's great in Super Rub-A-Dub and Warhawk (quite possibly the best online multiplayer game right now, so much fun), but tragically horrible in games like Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and GRAW2 (though to be fair both games stand-up really well despite this). But the sixAxis should work great for this, and pleasantly brighten up my PS3, though I'll be love to drop Keeley Hazzel's breasts for it. Maybe they could combine the two to form a game where you use the sixAxis to jiggle her breasts around? Maybe I've gone too far....
