Sunday Roundup: 6/28/15

New Games (6-28-15)Once again we’re bringing together a couple of Roundups into one, namely a few Just Dance games from last week and then this week’s extremely generous and awesome birthday gifts from friends and family! As always I felt super grateful and loved to be able to have people in my life that want to give me presents such as these, and I am eternally grateful for all that love and support.

I was also able to swing by a few different GameStop’s I don’t usually venture too, and while neither of them had anything too grand to call out, I was able to pick up a handful of Wii games on the cheap as well. Read the rest of this entry »

Top Ten Favorite Dance Dance Revolution Songs

DDR Konamix Logo

Though its popularity has waned in recent years, Konami’s Dance Dance Revolution franchise has seen numerous entries on literally every platform on the market. It also seemingly single handedly saved arcades from total annilhilation: or at least it staved off their downfall for a few more years. For myself, DDR was a way of life in high school. A group of my friends and I would play every day (no exaggeration there, we’d literally play every day), oftentimes directly after a swim practice or other school event. We even had a small rivalry going with another group of DDR-players at the arcades and in school! While I deemed myself good at the game, I was never anywhere near a competitive level, with even my friends topping me at every corner. Regardless, Dance Dance Revolution made up a large part of my gaming years. I’ve been thinking about the game recently, after picking up a random game in the series, and that got me thinking about my all-time favorite songs from the series. Now, I’ve written a lot of articles on this blog about top tens and whatnot, but nothing has been as challenging to narrow down to just ten than this list! It was tough, but I managed to whittle down all the songs I’ve danced to to just ten, and here they are, my top ten favorite DDR songs! Read the rest of this entry »

DDR Hottest Party 2 CoverDance Dance Revolution Hottest Party 2
Wii
Release Date: September 16th, 2008
Purchased at: Goodwill (Sunnyvale, CA – $4)

Just a random stop in Goodwill this week and I happened across a fine looking Wii game. Though at this point the series is still well out of it’s prime, Hottest Party 2 in as great a condition as I found it and for that price is just too good to pass up. Apparently the reviews for this one (and the entire Hottest Party series in general) have been mostly favorable, complimenting the game’s selection of musical tracks. I’m actually curious to see how this plays without a dance pad but with the Wii’s motion controls. Who knows…

Laters,

Modern Classics: DDRMAX2: Dance Dance Revolution

Once you feel the groove it’s hard to stop. As is the case with my recent reintroduction to the Dance Dance Revolution series. My previous Modern Classics entry was on the first PS2 DDR game, DDRMAX. The newest entry is none other than the sequel DDRMAX2. With more music, more step patterns, more modes, and more ways to get your groove on, MAX2 is one of the greatest games in the entire series. Too bad then that it was the last game that got it all right.

Modern Classics: DDRMAX: Dance Dance Revolution

It’s been a long time since I created the Modern Classics library, and I’ve completely neglected it over these pasts months. With that in mind I set out to reinvent the series, and I wanted to start with a game that easily fit into the Modern Classic criteria:
It has to be a fun, new, innovative, or personal favorite of myself and gamers;
Leaving behind a legacy for the video game world to remember is a plus, and;
There has to be something here that I can teach you about the game.
And what did I come up with? Dance Dance Revolution. And very quickly, actually.

Yearly Roundup: 2011

As 2011 comes to an end, I thought it would be a cool idea to look back at the year in games. Specifically, the year in games added to my ever-growing library. If you’re a frequent visitor to the site (I greatly hope you are!) you’ll no doubt know I do a weekly blog post about my newest games. So below I’ve collected every game I added this year (well, really only half-year, because I started this blog in late July). I’ve also linked any relevant posts I’ve done about said games, like reviews, Modern Classics, and gameplay videos. Enjoy the small retrospective, and here’s to another fantastic year in gaming in 2012!

Sunday Roundup: 11/13/11

Ahhh…
There’s nothing quite like buying a game you’ve been looking for for well over ten years. The satisfaction of thinking you somehow beat the system, found a gem, and finally attained the sought after holy grail of your collection is exhilarating. Until you realize there’s about 400 other rare games you’re still looking for!
