Unlike the other levels, Egg School does not have an eternal mode. Otherwise, when you score at least 100 points on any level, the King will give you the option of choosing Normal, Eternal, or Time Attack when you revisit that level.

Achievement Length/Difficulty

Ok, so the most important question that non-Katamari fans have is how long to get the full 1250, and how tough are the achievements overall. Reason I'm asking is Gamefly shipped this to me, so before I put it on my gamercard, I'd like to know what I'm getting myself into. (Achievements seemed pretty easy and the 1250 drew me in, if anyone is wondering why I had it on my Gamefly list)

I think every game should have a thread about exactly this, but that's just me personally I guess.

Heh heh. So you were hoping to nestle this onto your gamerscore card next-to Open Season and Shrek the Third? Good luck with that.

This game is not an easy 1000. It is pretty fun though. I would put it between the difficulty of Viva Pinata (finding all the cousins and gifts is a bit more frustrating) and Ninty-Nine Nights (not as hard as the all A-Ranking achievement). Once the cousin/gift guides are refined, this game shouldn't be too much of a headache.

There is... you just posted in it.

In my opinion, until there is a guide for the items (not the cousins/presents, the normal items you roll up to get bigger), this is going to take people weeks to finish. You'll get everything aside from that one achievement in a few days if you really plug away at it, but finding 100% of the items will take a long time.

I personally won't be making that guide.

Well there goes all my hopes and dreams for finishing this with relative ease. lol

Okay I get what you mean about the achievement discussion, but I think at the very least... the first post in each "Achievement Discussion" thread should have a basic length/difficulty explanation. Like for this game you could say (guessing here) Most of the achievements can be obtained in (X) hours, but the cousins/gifts/100% completion will take a considerable more amount of time. And (Y) and (Z) achievements are actually quite difficult and will require some practice. That is the information I personally look for when browsing the individual game forums. And the same questions do get asked quite a bit. I thought I heard something like this was in the works.

Ah! You want a single thread for every game, specifically devoted to assessing that game's value in the perspective of a zombified point whore.

If you've never played Katamari, you're missing out by not playing it. Note that for the 1250, you'll need to purchase the upcoming expansion packs (looks like 1000 points).

100% collection will take a while... I'm about 30 hours in with 98%, but tracking down those few small items will be a pain.

ok I've been reading your posts for awhile, your posts have been a great help, yes the 200 request secret achievement is true, i saw it on someone's tag that plays from japan, u know those kids that are uber good, i also saw some of them got the 1'500'000 achievement on scloss kosmos or whatever, i assume you have to get a 100 on all the other levels before u do it that's what i guess tho lol

also my girlfriend found a trick on the level where u create neptune she says she got to a part where there's a bird and a plank going up and down, when the plank came back down it pushed her through the ground to the other side of the world, she thought it was a glitch but then when it happened she says the computer mentioned something about it, like along the lines of "hey you warped this is a weird occurance" or something along that. she said it happened to her on accident and i personally haven;'t been able to reproduce it. nor did she finish the level so she didn't get acknowledged for it.

but i figure i put this on here so maybe i could contribute to one of the secret achievements lol

Allow me to preface this by saying that I do love this game... it's the first Katamari game I've ever played, and I got instantly hooked...

That said, some of the achievements are just flat out dumb. 50 and 100 hours played? Really? If they wanted to do time achievements, five and ten hours would make MUCH more sense... especially considering how short this game is. Even searching for all the cousins, presents and 100% collection... how would you get close to 50 hours, let alone 100?

A few of the others seem kinda silly too... like the 100/200 Katamaris made will just require playing the same quick levels over and over again.

Oh well, I do love the game, so those are just some minor complaints I guess... they don't take away from my enjoyment... I just probably won't be getting a full score on this one.

At least they don't have one that is getting score 100 on every level. Although I do agree that 100 hours is pretty weak. I like it and will be getting the 1250, someday...

Yeah it might be possible, might not be, if you get the 200 Katamaris, to get that 1,500,000Km achievement. I wouldn't bet on it though, the achievement is for the DLC. Normally when you want to get DLC achievements, you actually need the DLC. This would be the first I have heard of getting DLC achievements without having the DLC.

Even if you do manage to get a katamari larger than 1,500,000km it will not give you the achievement unless you have the DLC. Japanese players are able to get this achievement because the DLC is already available in Japan.

this is not true, before the dlc was even announced, before it came out over there, i saw one guy on the leader board, qoot he had barely over 1500000 and he had the achievementso u can get it without the download content unless he was some staff member that already had the content

ok, so there might be something wrong with the 50 hour achievement. I have now left my kat in eternal mode for the last 4 days, trying to push toward the 100 hour achievement as well. Just 5 min ago I left eternal mode to see if I got the achievement, which i should have, and nothing. Anyone else haveing this problem? or possibly know how to resolve it. The level i wasa doing it on was the first one after the egg training, the derrible deringable i think its called.

The guide thread says you can just sit in the Princedom. I know that's not what you're saying you did, but for what it's worth: I don't think it's true.

Also: have you tried leaving the sticks pulled together with a rubber band? That worked for me. Or better yet, wrap the rubber band from one stick, down back behind the controller cord, and then around the other stick, so that it perpetually rolls forward and to the right. When you check it again later, it's cool to see where it is, and maybe it'll have rolled up something you were missing.

Thats exactly what i did/am doing.... and still nothing.... im starting to think it may be glitched for some systems, though i know that is impossible.

EDIT: not sure what the problem was, but I finally got it. It litterally was running in erternal mode for an actual 90 hours... but I finally only got credit for 50 hours... at this rate I'm going to need to stay in eternal mode for the next 7 days in order to get 100 hours, and that isnt happening since AC6 is coming out tomorrow.

I've warped, too. It's lack of QA than anything else. Just a glitch.

astro

me and my friend just beat co-op today, and the three planets you make are new ones that are later added to the cosmos for collecting next time you make your way to space, first theres the

"cherry planet" a planet in the shape of two cherries on a stem.


second is the "peanut planet" a planet in the shape of a peanut.

and third the "snowman planet" and you guessed it, its in the same shape as a snowman... C=

im going to try and experiment and see if this will help me obtain the astronomic katamari achievement... maybe you could collect more then one of those planets if you roll more then one of the same type...

Really? The collection says that I have 100% in the outer space catagory. Yet I have not played co-op, so i never made and rolled up those planets. Though with those 3 planets you should be able to get real close to the astronomic katamari (depending on their size). Also did they just show up for beating Co-op or what?
