Checkpoint: Dance Dance Revolution 2016 Edition

posted in: Editorials & Features | 0

I woke up with the sudden urge to play some Dance Dance Revolution today. The seed was planted a week or so ago after watching this great little piece by VICE Gaming. I used to play DDR on a regular basis during the PlayStation 2 era. I even went out of my way to get my setup of metal pads (the cheaper one resembling the above) working on the original PlayStation 3. It was a fun way to keep in shape.

I still have the pads and with the latest version of the PlayStation 2 , I bet I can get everything back up and running on my PC.

Hmm…

I’ve been flip flopping between Overwatch and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The new competitive season of Overwatch is underway lighting up my friends list with regular players. It’s been a battle between Battlefield 1 open beta and Overwatch this past week. I wasn’t pleased with the poor performance of Battlefield 1’s 64 player Conquest mode. Even if they do iron out the kinks, I’m wasn’t enamored by the design decisions or the World War I aesthetic.
