I've heard and played it...It would be great if there were music from machinae in rock section, don't you think? Rhytmic and addictive...It would suit DDR (heh) well!

I've played it a few times, but I SUCK! Those Bemani games are pretty cool though. I like Para Para Paradise.

Yeah, I even got a pair of aerobic shoes. I bought the metal pad at http://www.redoctane.com (http://www.redoctane.com).

 I also play DDR all the time, me and my friend go down to Illuzions (big arcade type place) and play on all the cheaper priced nights. He's a master at it, but I am still working at it.

I know some of the people that put out these machines in Norway. I want the key for all the machines... I know someone who has it. Imagine... Free play on all Euromix 2 machines... :P

Dude, too much of that game is unhealthy (Emotionally, anyway). There was this one guy I knew(He's changed) that Dance Danced his life away. Be careful, my friends... :'(

I know what you mean, well I don't know. I'm sorry to hear that. But I used to know this guy, that he started out being really cool, but then he became this creepy guy bumming money from me, and other people, just to get another game after school. It was like he was some kind of drug addict... it's a scary thing how these kinds of games can do that to people...

I think my history of gaming has made me "stronger". I don't mean physically. Because of the RPG's I play, I believe I think in a different way than I would if I hadn't have played them. That was an odd sentence.

Anyways, gaming can be negative or positive, it just depends on what you like and what you are trying to achieve.

And if you say fighting games serve no purpose, wrong. Timing and quick reflexes can be improved through such games.

After all, in the end, they are only games. Too bad not everyone realizes this.

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).

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:

You could check ebay for ddr pads that where i got my 2 metal pads from.  $211 with shipping, but i live in California, USA also, so shipping wasn't so bad for me.

I agree there should be some official machinae supremacy songs for DDR, but ddr seems to go more the dance/trance side of music.  Guitar Freaks/Drummania would be a much better game for machinae supremacy songs, also made by Konami and in the Bemani Genre.

Oh well if you have any question about ddr and music post them here, I know a lot about the game, both official and sim/original DDR stuff.

I reciently purchaced DDRMax for the PS2 and a dance mat.  If I knew it was that much fun I would've bought it years ago.

One week and I was making inroads on four foot songs on easy.  Not bad for a while guy with no rythm... ;)

Oh, here's a quick Beatmani question.  Is the "Lord of the drums" a Beatmani game?

I do want to play that one so badly as I've a love of Japanese culture and the game involves beating a Taiko drum in time to the rythim.  Taiko drums, for those that don't know, are a traditional japanese insturment..  Literally translated, if memory serves, the name means 'Big drums"  :)

I've been fortunate that our "Sister city" in Japan has sent people over to preform... they're really powerful and intense insturments...
