Neoblaze is actually totally, utterly RIGHT in this matter.

LOL just as he is more, and more these days  ;D
heh. But I also agree with what he said.
When the darkness calls, and it's your time to go... will you go into the night, and become like me?

I've never played it ( I don't have any sence of rythm anyway ); INSERT INTO yabbse_messages (ID_MSG, ID_TOPIC, ID_MEMBER, subject, posterName, posterEmail, posterTime, posterIP, smiliesEnabled, modifiedTime, modifiedName, body, icon, attachmentSize, attachmentFilename) VALUES but I discovered it when I heard some music from TaQ (one of those that is featured in the DDR games). And later on I found some videos of crazy Asians that danced their ass off in competitions.

As for the gaming: If you have a real life in addtion to your life in the games, gaming is probably just good for you. (Relaxing, training reflexes, using your brain and for DDR-alike games: You actually work out).
Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

I'm a healthy gamer. I mean, I have a life. I'm not dying or anything, but my eating habits suck. And I smoke. And when I sit down to play a game I tend to play for hours on end.

Nevermind. >_<

I've been playing it since new year. They have two of 'em here in finland...And I'm totally addicted. But I' able to play DDR only like once in a month, I live so far away from Helsinki (100 km) and whenever I visit my boyfriend (who's da leet Dancin' Queer of DDR..) we go and play our asses off. He's a lot better than me, he can play it at home, with his computer and I can't. It's quite funny though.. I had to drag him there at first.. he refused to play and was all like "I'm no good, I suck, I have no sense of rhythm".. And now he dances freestyle with his friend, Tony, and people actually _take pictures of them_ and clap their hands when they are finished! A guy at the amusement park, where the other machine is, actually paid for his next double-session!

That's pretty awesome. I'll have to find a place where DDR is unknown and rip some moves out.

Wow. I'm surprised that noone has mentioned this before:

There is a PC-based DDR simulator called "Dance With Intensity".

There is a fan website called DDRei that hosts Tournaments for people who make steps to their own music.

I entered their second 'TournaMix' and WON the popular vote in the STANDARD division with my entry for MS's "The Great Giana Sisters" (totally with their permission, of course)

I didn't edit the song in any way, I swiped a graphic from their site and modified it, I created steps to the music...all in the name of fun!

You can download the simulator from www.ddrei.com
You can get "The Great Giana Sisters" DWI file pack from:

I checked it out and I must say Congrats!

I also like  that you included facts about the origin of the music, and gave full credit to Machinae's work (as well as url)  in the readme file in the download.  :D

I wouldn't have been comfortable without getting permission first.

Actually, I use DWI a lot. I even imported a metal dance pad from California to Norway. I have around 1700 files for it, as well.

...then you probably have "The Great Giana Sisters" no?

If not, you can still get it from:
