Excerpt: Holy Invasion of Privacy Badman! What Did I Do to Deserve This? is exactly why downloadable games are such a great thing. This is a game that would never have been released here in the US a few years ago, but thanks to the ease and decreased expenses of DLC it is available to us through the PlayStation Network, courtesy of NIS America.
Excerpt: What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord?! comes with a quirky, throwback look to go along with its equally quirky gameplay and title. The entire game has a charming, 80's arcade look that won't win over graphics whores, but completely works for the gameplay. In a sense, What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord?! is similar to rhythm games. The gameplay requires most of your attention, so glitzy visuals provide more of a distraction than anything else.

Summary: Badman is a quirky and enjoyable game with a steep learning curve. It incorporates aspects of various genres, and the execution is smooth rather than a mishmash. It’s essentially like having your own personal ant farm of minions. Anyone who likes a challenge and being able to play the villain should check this out. It’ll keep you entertained for quite a while.

Excerpt: The last time I had to seriously think about ecosystems, and I mean seriously think about them, I was popping a spot during third period biology class. Now, a depressing 12 years later, I'm doing it again (without the spot popping). In the horribly-named Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! What Did I Do to Deserve This?, a GCSE level understanding of soil nutrition and food chain pyramids doesn't just help, it's required.
Conclusion: It definitely took a while, but once I understood what Badman was trying to do, I was sold. That doesn't mean everyone will get it or even like what the game is doing when they do, but for me it really was something different and unique.

Conclusion: Anyone with a long history of playing RPGs knows that training isn’t where the majority of the game should be spent though; it’s the story that we all want to see. For Badman that story is hidden behind a lock and key of difficulty. I’m not squeamish about challenging games, far from it. The difficulty comes more from the speed in which a player is expected to complete tasks and the basic inability to control the things that will fight in your stead.

Excerpt: Holy Invasion Of Privacy, Badman! What Did I Do To Deserve This? is a cheeky game rife with pop-culture mockery. Given the ludicrous title, that’s probably no shock. The surprise is how much Badman relies on its goofy humor, at the expense of telling players what the heck it’s about. Even in tutorial stages, Badman reveals only tiny bits of its core, diverting the conversation with wink-nudge wisecracks that start to feel like a defense mechanism.
Excerpt: You’ve got to hand it to NIS — they have a knack for finding and publishing some of the quirkiest games the world has ever seen. That’s why they remain one of my favorite publishers. They’re not afraid to please niche audiences with strange games with even stranger titles, such as What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord?! In this quirky little sideshow of a game, you actually take up the mantle of a pickaxe that once belonged to the God of Destruction. Trippy, right?
