Dance Games

Gearbox and Harmonix have worked together in the past with a dance section in one of last year's trailers for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. At the PAX East Inside Gearbox panel, Gearbox and Harmonix announced a new p...

The Dance Central franchise took me by surprise. In the very early stages of Kinect, I was extremely skeptical of the tech --  to be blunt, I didn't really believe in it. After testing the first entry at E3, however, I w...
Another day, another dance game from Ubisoft. This trailer for The Hip Hop Dance Experience lays out features of the game and it looks fairly packed with content. I know that I would benefit from slowing down all the dance moves to a snail's pace so that this rhythm-free Caucasian can get his groove on. The Hip Hop Dance Experience releases for Xbox 360 on November 13.
In honor of upcoming Xbox 360/Kinect release Dance Central 3, Harmonix has discounted their singles and packs for the franchise. You can nab singles for 160 Microsoft points, down from 240 MSP. That's a dollar off, from $3 to...

Been getting enough of the dance game craze yet? Well, I'm sure some of you out there aren't because the dancing games are still selling like crazy. As a result, new DLC is on the way for Dance Central 2 tomorrow and this tim...
When game publishers ask Mega64 to make a commercial for one of their upcoming titles, do they go in with any knowledge of Mega64's body of work? Do they just think, "Oh! Funny Internet people! Here's some money. Send us the video by Wednesday"? Anyway, here's the Mega64 Just Dance 3 commercial. I said, "What the fudge?" at the 1:38 mark. Mega64: "DANCEMAS" Just Dance 3 Commercial [YouTube]
There's no getting around it; the Just Dance series is huge. Like, really huge. Here's some stats to put it into perspective. Since launching back in October, Just Dance 3 has a total of 8.4 million players. According to Ubis...

Today is the last day the entire Dance Central DLC song catalogue is on sale so if you completely forgot about it, but still want that sweet DLC, you better get on it fast. The thing with these DLC songs is that even if you l...
Today I have been reminded that some people actually go out of their way to move around, even when playing videogames. If that's your cup of tea, then perhaps Zumba Fitness 2 will be right up your street. Apparently Zumba is...
Between all the major releases, it's easy to overlook hidden gems such as Country Dance 2 for Nintendo Wii. This sequel to "America's favorite country dance video game" has songs we all know by heart, from artists such as Ja...

A handful of new tracks were announced for Dance Central 2 during the PAX Prime festivities. As it turns out, developers, your dance game only needs to reference Humpty Hump to get us to write about it. We go through a checkl...
I literally can't think about Sony's Move dance game, Everybody Dance, without hearing C+C Music Factory's Martha Wash howling "Everybody dance now!" inside my skull. It's a problem. Sony has announced that the game will hit ...
