Any one here play DDR?

I don't. But, in the quest to get my child a great gift, I broke down and purchased Dance Dance Revolution Extreme. I also bought a eye camera for it (play station 2).

I've got some questions if there is anyone who has this set up and game.. PM or respond here.

Thanks Reiko,



First, foremost, how do you use the camera? What section can you use the camera on?

Here's a web site with screen shots. You set the camera up on top of the t.v. in a well lit room. It films you from the waist up and your hands act like the controller. If you are really energetic you work your feet on the dance mat at the same time. It's quite a work out, fun too.
http://media.ps2.ign.com/media/608/608101/imgs_1.html

It has mini games for use with the camera also.

If you read the post, I called you an ass clown.


My kid will be addicted?

How can you possibly know what my child will and will not be addicted to?

Maybe he was being mindlessly antagonistic towards you to give you a taste of your own medicine.

Let's see on my list of things to do:

1.) Go to bathroom. Have bowel movement.

2.) Change clothes.

3.) Go to Cafe Bassam and have a vietnamese coffee.

4.) Figure out cold fusion.

5.) See family after 3 week absence (after they get off work/out of school).

6.) Relax, enjoy holidays, ride fixie much.


Hmmm.. I don't see make friends and influence people on my list. So I guess you're **** out of luck!!


Although I did influence you to post!!!

Seriously, I don't think the warning is needed nor applicable. A video game that requires physical interaction of cardiac type movement.... a decent enough thing to me.

and kids don't even realize they're getting exercise. Better them to get addicted to that than something much worse (drugs, violence, gangs, other mischeif). I see nothing wrong with DDR.

Don't mind Karsten's abrasiveness, he's a secretary in the Army who lives vicariously through bike forums, in the form of insulting posts. He loves calling people names and making accusations that would lose him some teeth if it was real life and not the internet, but he knows that, in other words, a real tough guy.

It lookd like they're hooked by an invisible wire to the tv, while being mentally insane and doing stupid things.

It is indeed a pretty cool idea for a game - but some of the music from the DDR series is just awful.
