This Might Be The Biggest PlayStation 4 Controller In The World 

No, you are not looking at a tiny human! This playable, jumbo-sized DualShock 4 is the Sony Interactive Entertainment building in Tokyo. Advertisement The face buttons and the D-pad work as do the shoulder buttons. The thumbsticks can move around, but aren’t playable. (I’m guessing the TouchPad isn’t either, because creating a giant version seems expensive.)  It doesn’t sound like R2 and L2 work, either. [Image: Gigazine] Website Gigazine recently checked out the controller and played PaRappa The Rapper on it.

Baking A Cake Is Still The Hardest Thing To Do In Parappa The Rapper

When I was seven years old, I could never beat the Cheap Cheap Chicken stage of Parappa the Rapper. Now that I’m an adult and the HD remaster has been released for the Playstation 4, I figured I’d finally get past it. I was wrong. Advertisement Parappa the Rapper is a game bursting with joy. You play as a rapping dog trying to win the heart of his crush, a sunflower named Sunny Funny. His moments of growth and self improvement are shown through a rapping rhythm game. Parappa learns kung fu, learns how to drive, gets a job, and at one point tries to bake a cake for Sunny’s birthday. Somehow, baking a cake is the single most difficult piece of Parappa’s personal growth. In the game, Parappa is following a recipe from a cooking show, hosted by Cheap Cheap Chicken. When you rap poorly, she comes out of the television to yell at you. She’s an asshole. Advertisement Up until this point, both now and as a kid, the game was a breeze. I hadn’t failed a stage once. This chicken kicked my READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

We’re So Happy Parappa The Rapper Is Back To Frustrate Us

This is a nice sentiment, but thirty seconds later he says that, actually, money money money is all you need. Which is it, frog? Parappa the Rapper was one of the defining titles of the original PlayStation, not to mention one of the games that birthed the whole rhythm genre. With its unforgettable offbeat rap tracks, adorable paper-flat design, and innovative call-and-response gameplay, it’s left quite an impression these 20 years. Advertisement Today, Sony releases Parappa the Rapper Remastered for PlayStation 4. It’s a fairly bare-bones reproduction of the original game, with hi-res textures and some small bonus features. Gita Jackson and I have been fans since the original release, and convened to discuss our feelings after playing the PS4 version. We love Parappa. We do. He’s just a little hard to love sometimes. Chris Kohler: Whatcha gonna do when they come? Advertisement Gita Jackson: Oh no. Chris: Try Again!! Gita: Parappa the Rapper was one of the first video games I ever played—the PlayStation belonged to my older brother and he was very rightly afraid of me breaking it if I fooled around with it READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

PaRappa the Rapper Remastered Review – An Aging Mascot

[embedded content] PaRappa the Rapper debuted on the original PlayStation in 1996, more than 20 years ago. The last game to feature the iconic hip-hop hero center stage was PaRappa the Rapper 2 in 2002 on the PS2, though Sony’s renowned rhythm star did make an appearance as a playable fighter in 2012’s PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Needless to say he’s been a staple Sony mascot for many years, even as fewer and fewer gamers can claim to have played the game that launched the beanie adorned dog to PlayStation stardom. Now, a little over 20 years after his introduction to the world, PaRappa is making his presence known on the PlayStation 4 in PaRappa the Rapper Remastered. As expected from recent remasters of classic titles, the graphics have been cleaned up, and some minor tweaks have been made to the game, though don’t expect a complete rebuild in the same vein as Ratchet & Clank. PaRappa’s cartoony graphics look incredible in HD, with the titular character and the rest of the hip-hop masters popping in a stunning vibrancy that hardly betrays the fact that the game is actually two decades old. PaRappa the Rapper is all about the music, and all…
