Dance Central DLC catalog discounted for Kinect birthday

It's Kinect's birthday! I...I didn't get him anything. My week got so busy -- you know how it is.  There is some kind of celebration going on, though. Dance Central's entire song catalog has been discounted on XBLA. Son...

Review: Dance Central 2 photo
Review: Dance Central 2
by Dale North

I'm not a dancer. At all. I dance about as well as you'd expect someone that blogs about games for a living to. That said, recently I've seen more and more of my peers dancing at events and other industry functions, and I've been feeling left behind. Again I've returned to the wall to watch everyone else dance, just like in high school. 

I recently assumed that last year's hit Kinect title, Dance Central, had something to do with their new moves -- what else could it be? With the release of Dance Central 2 and its new and improved Break It Down move teaching mode, I felt the time was as good as any to get some moves of my own. I've put this sequel through its paces and…well, I'm still going to stand against the wall. But now I can judge my peers' moves from that wall and call out their mistakes.

The Glitterati gets an attitude in Dance Central 2

If you're a Kinect owner, odds are you own Dance Central. After all, it is, arguably, the best piece of software for the device by a mile. Harmonix did a wonderful job of bringing the well-traveled dance  genre to Kinec...

Dance Central 2: The Hamza edition

I love Kinect even if I do only use it for impressing my Mum and playing lots of Dance Central. So what else do you do when you see the Dance Central 2 booth at E3? You grab the most metrosexual guy on staff and play Usher.

E3: The rubbish MS will announce for Xbox 360

Microsoft has been pretty quiet in the run to E3, and it was speculated (by me) that we'd get a lame press conference from the Xbox 360 maker, for the third straight year. According to the list of games it's due to announce, ...

Rejoice, 'Wild Thing' comes to Dance Central this week

Every game should, somewhere, have Tone Lōc's "Wild Thing" in it. This goes for Mortal Kombat, Portal 2, and whatever Quantum Dream's next game is. But I guess Dance Central will have to do for now. Tone Lōc &ndash...
