there's this game on the ps2 that looks really cute. it's called Poinie's Poin; it's japan-only, but has a full english localization with english voices and everything, which is really odd, but it reminds me a lot of a 90s cartoon. i wish it got released here or something.
there's also this skating game on the gamecube called Go Go Hypergrind published by atlus...but made in cooperation with spumco (the animation studio that made ren and stimpy)
it only ever released in north america despite being developed in japan, so it's really expensive and hard to find now...which sucks, because once upon a time, it was dirt cheap, i could've bought it at one point
i love the music in this game, though
i'll have to watch that giftpia video in full sometime, it looks really interesting, but skimming through it, i don't think i got a good idea of what the game is like...
if i never have to see another person recommend this exact game, it'll still be too soon...
