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?

Finally getting around to cataloging all the intergalactic-level augments I want to use for post-game Tyrant killing in XCX. The grind feels more substantial than Monster Hunter but then again there are no four-story-high monsters in MH.

So due to things at my job picking up and bunch of real life stuff, I don't think I'll be able to give my Waifu Wars blog the love and attention it needs. Still, I don't think I need to remind you guys who best waifu is, but just in case you forgot.

For the next Assassin's Creed, they should completely overhaul the gameplay and base it on the latest Splinter Cells. Stealth, climbing and action would all be massively improved that way.

When does Undertale get "Interesting"? Played for 2-3 hours, having fun, but failing to see what it does that's so utterly amazing.
