Now put this lag to sleep, will ya.

Column by KC Green, .

Video Game Cheats 'n Beatums is a weekly webcomic by KC Green. If you want to read more, you can find the rest of the archived comics here.

I’D BE REMISS if we never went back to the vibrant and rich world of Parappa the Rapper and Um Jammer Lammy! Such great colors, sounds, characters! FILLED to the BRIM with personality! Wow, now this game! Why do I keep missing the beats. I swear I’m doing them on time am I missing something, I got to listen to that QUACKING beats again and I sSWEAR I’M HITTING THE BUTTONS, what the HELL IS THE MATTER WITH THIS UGLY GAME I NOW HATE..

KC Green is probably playing a weird indie game right now instead of working on his adaptation of Pinocchio or writing the comic BACK. He currently lives in Western Massachusetts in the snow where he makes comics and writes these bios.

    I swear, Parappa 2 on PS4 has display lag, too.

    Yup. Lag makes Lammy unplayable on PS3. It's a tragedy.Edited January 2016 by UnknownJones

    @UnknownJones I bought it on PsP 5 years ago. Couldn't believe they were selling it with no mention of its unplayability, or even attempting to sync the screen response with the buttons. I mean optimisation isnt impossible right? I'd never heard this mentioned before I bought it. I figured with my PsP settings , all kinds of workarounds - I just couldn't believe they'd sell it in that state without even a mention in the store. And beyond the odd forum post - the internet largely ignored it. Great way to treat one of the greatest games of all time.

    At least I still have my Lammy disc - still - that was one of the last digital Sony titles I bought.
