The issue date of the comic is not given. Can someone add this? Rikthoff (talk) 18:53, 3 August 2012 (EDT) - more katamari damacy shenanigans (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

In guitar hero you tilt the controler to active star power. If you did so with steering wheel you would crash. 21:47, 10 January 2014 (UTC) (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~) Any reason for an incomplete? 06:29, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

I have changed the last part about the title text, as it referred to playing the games while driving, rather than listening to the music. Although the idea is that you then think you are playing! I hope my wording makes more sense. I have never played either of the two games, and cannot say if the explanation for driving poorly while listening to guitar hero music makes sense. But if it does, I would say it was OK to remove the incomplete tag now! Kynde (talk) 13:45, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

I have never played guitar hero either, but I believe the game shows a series of objects approaching you to represent the notes. The point is then to "hit" large objects, much like the point of Katamari Damacy is to hit small objects. This makes more sense since otherwise any game music could simply distract you from driving.
Is there a guitar hero player reading this who could make a final edit?-- 00:45, 17 January 2014 (UTC)
I don't think guitar hero has to do with hitting things, as much as doing sudden turns and hitting your horn on certain notes.. 14:24, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

After I play a lot of Mario Kart, I feel urges to run over boxes, and to shake the steering wheel on top of speed bumps. - 15:06, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

After playing a lot of Elder Scrolls, I find myself wanting to harvest all the flowers I see. How else am I going to become an expert alchemist? (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

After playing an rpg for hours then going out into public, I find myself scanning windows, doors, vehicles. Staying close to the edges with my head on a swivel, eyes moving like turrets focusing on any one who gets within "range" and IFF them. Walk into a room and move to the corners scanning for targets. I can see the attraction to paintball and laser tag.04:32, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

When I first read this, I mist thought katamari music was some sort of bloodthirsty, rage inducing music, and that it motivated Cueball to go hunting. Boy, I feel stupid.Will X (talk) 06:01, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

I think this comic may have been inspired by this Wired article from early 2005. 19:23, 16 November 2021 (UTC)

After reading the text, I found that I once played a variant of Katamari Damacy a few years ago, and I won the first place in my first try. ColorfulGalaxy (talk) 19:35, 4 December 2022 (UTC)

I guess Randall hadn't heard of eurobeat in 2006. Don't you think it would be more dangerous to drive to Deja Vu (the Initial D one, not the other dozen songs by that title)? GreatWyrmGold (talk) 22:07, 20 December 2023 (UTC)
