HAWP: You know what to do, Ash, bust a move!

The Burch brood do their best Shabba Doo and Boogalo Shrimp impersonations in the latest Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? Can they move to the groove and shake what their mama gave them? Probably not. But give them props for the effort! Also, SUPER SECRET ENDING! Is Ash gonna die? Also probably not. Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? - Dance Central 2 [GameTrailers]

With a mostly sorry launch lineup, Kinect's first-year appeal came almost entirely from Dance Central. Since then, it too often feels like this series is solely providing the legs for Microsoft's motion platform. Less than a year later, Harmonix gave us a follow-up with all the sequel bells and whistles (new modes, more songs, etc.).

Dance Central 3 seems to be taking a similar route. There are no big shakeups to the core gameplay, but it does bring a slew of new content to ensure the party does go on.

E3: All I wanna do is Dance Central 3
by Holly Green

This year's E3 has been home to a number of exciting announcements but none more exciting for me personally than Dance Central 3. I had my doubts they'd make a third, as I wondered where the series could truly "go" after the near-perfect Dance Central 2.

In a sea of yearly dance game releases, how will yet another stack up? Through some E3 magic (read: my hounding of Hamza and Steven to give me the assignment instead) I got my chance to check it out.
