Preview: Dance Central 3 WILL teach you how to Dougie photo
Preview: Dance Central 3 WILL teach you how to Dougie
by Abel Girmay

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.

Tara Long's Kinect Fitness CHALLENGE! photo
Tara Long's Kinect Fitness CHALLENGE!
by Tara Long

As co-host of The Destructoid Show, I consider it my prerogative - nay, my mission - to embarrass myself on a near daily basis. It's not something I typically take issue with, as long as I can say that at the end of the day, it was for journalism. Needless to say, when I pitched the idea of a Kinect-themed fitness segment to our producer, I was immediately met with an incredulous, "Are you sure you want to do that? People are going to see this, you know."

So, after some heavy reconsideration and one too many gin and tonics, I decided to go for it. Who needs a future career in politics anyway, right?

Check out the video above for my run-down of some of Kinect's top fitness games, including Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012, UFC Personal Trainer, Zumba Fitness Rush, and more!
