What's Next With PaRappa the Rapper? Stickers!
For some strange reason, we are all drawn to stickers. The infatuation lasts longer for some than others, but at one point or another we have all covered a notebook, writing utensil, wall, or a console with a sticker (or a hundred). Why is this important in the game industry? Well, gamelets, PlayStation released a remastered version of PaRappa the Rapper earlier this month. And what's coming out next for this series?
PaRappa the Rapper stickers!
Take a look:
PaRappa the Rapper was originally released by Sony on the PlayStation and PlayStation Portable. Now that the re-master is available on the PlayStation 4, Sony has decided to keep the hype up by releasing the stickers on iOS. Let's hope that Android follows soon!

For those of you who don't know, PaRappa the Rapper is a single-player rhythm game in which the main character, known as PaRappa, must rap-battle his way through the six stages of the game.
There's a "U Rappin" meter that gauges how well the player is following the beat. It rates you as Awful, Bad, Good, or Cool. I'm not going to go into all of the rules for gameplay, but let's just say you don't want to hit that Awful or Bad rating too many times -- it'll probably send you back to the beginning.
To get an idea about what it's like to play, check out the video below.
