Notes:
There’s a lot more good songs on the American version of DDR Extreme than I remember. Actually, I think I just had a bias against some songs when they’re really not bad. It could also be that I’ve been unlocking more songs that don’t suck. 😉 The challenge mode version of B4U is pretty cool. I almost comboed the whole thing, but then the 16th steps got me. My ankles were pretty sore today. I attribute this to walking up more stairs than I’m used to.

Notes:
Hmm, my calves started getting sore today. I think I probably started out too fast. Maybe I should play some standard songs to begin with, huh? Overall, I didn’t do too well score wise, and I got pretty tired within 30 minutes. I think it could be due to sleep deprivation and starting school again.

Well, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right?

Kraft Offers free DDR Pad!

Okay, so it’s not really “free” (shipping costs $9.99 – way to pull an eBay on us, Kraft), but still, not bad for a USB Dance pad. I’m not sure how big it is though. Does anyone know? From the relative size of the USB plug, it could be pretty small. This could just be the work of photoshop though. I’ve heard it’s full size, so I guess we’ll have to see. It’d be pretty cool just as a novelty item at least. Check it out here.

Notes:
I didn’t get much sleep last night, so I kept this workout to a minimum. Actually, I started losing focus again, but I got it back on the last song! I think DDR Max is actually better than DDR Max 2. I used to think Max was too hard, but now that I’m better, I actually like the harder songs.

Notes:
So I played through DDR Max 2 today. I didn’t really feel tired until the very end, when my brain stopped working again. Actually, I did pretty good overall. I have a theory that the slower the song is, the harder it gets. This is probably because the programmers figure they can add 64th notes just because the song is slow. I pretty much got murdered on Secret Rendevous. Good thing I don’t like that song, and barely ever play it.

On DDR Max 2, I do like: Kind Lady, Kind Lady (interlude), Do it Right, Breakdown, and others. Maybe I’ll play DDR Max next.
