Yoostar 2 lets you reenact Frankenstein on March 8

2:40 PM on 02.09.2011 // Nick Chester

Yoostar 2 is like magic, using the PlayStation Eye or Kinect to put players into their favorite movies. It will magically be appealing on store shelves on March 8, for $49.99, the game's developer has announced.

The game itself is a bit difficult to explain, so you have two options: check out this latest developer diary or our own preview we did of the game not too long ago. Basic idea is that Yoostar 2 has players re-enacting scenes popular films and television shows, and getting scored based on their performances. How does it work? Magic, man, we already talked about that.

So what movies/scenes will be in the game? It seems like a pretty hefty list, including everything from Beverly Hills Cop to Frankenstein, Rocky to Shaun of the Dead. The full list of sets and scenes can be found below.

It really comes down to how well the technology works, but in theory, Yoostar 2 sounds like a pretty hilarious party game. Anyone wanna come by and perform the "It's not a tumor!" scene from Kindergarten Cop with me?

Ever thought of skipping a console generation (and not upgrading PC for years, either) because of how big your pile of shame is? I'm doing that just now.

Apparently there are cancellations on the CE versions of MGSV:TTP from Europe and North America. People getting emails saying they are cancelled and such. On top of that is that there's been unboxings that don't have the extras for the Day One edition.

I'll never get how making an inanimate object or a plant look like an animal or just alive somehow is considered more "out of ideas" than just an animal being an animal. That seems more like the opposite of being "out of ideas" to me.

I don't hate spiders because they look weird and scary, but because they put their webs in places I commonly walk through. It gets all over my face and hair and getting it out makes me look crazy to everyone else.
