Complex Says: This self parodying series by Konami was never released in the states. It was probably deemed too weird by the Japanese Ministry of Exporting Odd Shit to the Gaijin. Hippie-flipping westerners at Burning Man wouldn't even be able to come up with a game like this.
Parodius isn't that weird to us. Then again, nothing on 4chan fazes us anymore so we're a shitty barometer. If it's any consolation, we'd give anything to have our sanity back.
