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?

Alright so I'm looking for a few games for my newly repurchased DS. I'm already set on RPG as it's all I have pretty much. Were there any good puzzle games? I've heard good things about Professor Layton.

After hearing Persona 4 Dancing All Night come out of my surround sound system; I can safely say my $20 Playstation TV purchase was totally justified. The bass on Best Friends (Banvox Remox) literally shook the floor. It's freaking awesome!

Was on the front page and was greeted by a new post, which I clicked to find "You cannot see the future". Then refreshed and it was gone. I saw Chris's post on Eight Days' cancellation as it was brought, new and unready, into the world! Rare and wonderful

Community Question: Have you ever purchased a game only to regret it later and then sell it/give it away, only to even later regret selling it and wind up purchasing it again?

A decadent staircase adorned in gold rises into infinite darkness. Writhing beings beyond comprehension lurk in the shadows, their mere presence encroaching on the edges of human understanding. A blood moon glows . I am losing my mind. I need more eyes...

We need to be implanted with microchips because I'd really like to know how much time I've spent playing different video games my entire life.

If there are rainbows in Xenoblade Chronicles X, Reyn must be in it as well. You can't have a rainbow without Reyn, baby!

I really hope Xenoblade become it's own franchise, it has way too much potential to simply being reduced to 2 games.

Touchable Holograms? When this eventually matures and hits market, almost all our regulars will vanish for weeks.

Xenoblade Chronicles Wii for €10? Sure, Nintendo, don't mind if I do!

Super Smash Bros. 4 has too much content. So much so I almost don't want a sequel. I honestly hope that NX gets a "Super Smash Bros. For NX" port rather than a new installment. It could be a GOTY edition and come with all of the DLC.

Bought my first full-priced physical 3DS game ever - New Style Boutique 2: Fashion Forward. I'll try to write a post on the previous game at some point before doing the same with NSB2.

How do you guys manage to buy all these games at day 1 with such huge backlogs?

Guys if I were to do a thing, how many of you would watch my thing because I was thinking of doing a thing but I dunno if people really like that kinda thing so I just wanted to know if you liked that thing because I'm thinking of doing a thing, you know?

Bayonetta 2 is 40% off in the EU Nintendo eShop today. If you have a WiiU and don't have this game you are a horrible person and I want nothing to do with you. You can amend your errors by buying it. Xenoblade Wii is also 50% off as well.
