Anyone have any suggestions on some must-have songs to pick up? I want to start playing DC more often and would love some more variety.

Personally I find anything with Gaga to be crazy fun. Otherwise Keri Hilson's "Turnin Me On" is in the red on difficulty, but it isn't too hard in all honesty so that's one I'd recommend. Riahnna "Disturbia", Paula Abdul "Straight Up" and Black Eyed Peas "I Got a Feeling" were some of the others I distinctly remember having a good time with as well.

I remember Gaga's songs being fun in DC1 and I do like all of the new songs that they put up for download. Do you know off hand if any of the other Rihanna songs are any fun? I'll definitely be checking out all of these that you recommended. Thank you for the suggestions, I appreciate it!

Haven't gotten the Rihanna pack yet, I'm kinda skeptic in a weird way. I Enjoyed "Pon de Replay" and "Disturbia," but I'm still mixed feelings because "Rude Boy" was a bit too simple for me and I still don't know how I feel about her new songs. Though honestly I'll get them eventually it's just I'm still trying to 5 star as many of the songs in DC2 before anything. Just last night I finally "mastered" all of Riptide Crew's songs on hard so that along with Lu$h Crew, everything else (looking at you Sexy Chick and Get Your Freak On) is just a slow uphill battle.

i didn't realize it connected with DC2 at all, so I guess that's something, but it sure sounds pretty awful. Thanks for the review. It saves me a few minutes of download time, but not from the disappointment. Oh well.

Newer DLC

Last Week: Busta Rhymes - Don't Touch Me



After watching and playing Don't touch me , I would say it's probably one of the best DLC songs. A very good guy song, which dance central 2 has some problems nailing sometimes. Same feel as the Gnarls barkley "Run" routine

C+C is ok. I used to own the tape. Sorta like a workout class, so I guess it fits the song.

Oh ya.... the DLC songs since the DC2 rountines now have skippable freestyles (i.e. there is a routine behind the freestyle). Any DLC from the DC1 days have non skippable freestyles since no routine is behind it.

Truthfully I prefer the once a week DLC releases. True, in the past we had a bundle of usually 3 songs and there was a 50 cent discount usually. However, if we keep getting one a week then we get more songs most likely.

And I can without a doubt say I hate "Get Yo Freak On." I Suck at the timing so bad and best I can get is 4 and a half stars on hard. At this rate I know I'm going to 5 Star Bieber loooong before I get that one done and 4 more songs counting those as well before I 5 star everything on hard for on disc songs. Goddamn Harmonix always knows how to somehow appeal to me and get me by the balls.

I don't know if I've five starred that. However, I am having trouble 5 starring What is love on freaking easy and it's pissing me off so much. It's not like I'm not getting the moves, it's just I can't seem to get many flawless moves while playing it.

I think the biggest difference between DC 1 and DC 2 is that in DC 2 a lot of songs judge you on making the move snap or pop.

Like one of the moves in Like a G6 (fly bird?) I couldn't get flawless, then i realized it was just looking for me to drop my arms to my side fast and completely. It wasn't looking for a flawless execution of the arm twist. Steelto in the same song is similar it looks for some quick upward pushes, rather than perfect execution.

I seen some people talk about how easy DC2 is. I assume those are people with a dance background who were doing all the DC1 song correctly, so being graded harder doesn't make the game any harder for them.

Star wise in Dance Central 2 is all based on how many flawless you get now. Since I was able to beat some of my friend's score on some of the songs, but she was still able to 5 star them before I could.

I think you might be right about that cause I just watched a video of a guy gold starring venus on easy and it seems I might be trying to execute too perfectly it seems.

However, it's just weird because some songs I'm just overall better at. Like Don't touch me now, while not super complicated to begin with, I was able to 5 star at all levels on the first try.

Don't touch me now is an awesome song/routine. I wish they had more like that.

A chubby asian girl on youtube who is a very good dancer, said in general she has to dial it back and keep the move a little stiff to get a flawless.

I have the most issues with songs like Technologic or Satellite that have a lot of exact unique movements. I find the girly songs to be the easiest. A lot of those moves either are the same or very similar to other moves.

So pretty much my favorite songs are the ones I find the hardest, lol.

Right now, What is love, Get Ur Freak On, and Venus are the threes songs keeping me from 3 achievements in mastering Riptide, Flashfoward, and Lush on easy. I guess that's why I get so upset at those songs lol.

*edit* Wore a shirt this time and I don't know if it helped but I did get much closer on all three songs. It's just a matter of time. Maybe I should just stick with my respectable 640 GS in DC2 lol. Those snap moves still mess me up bad.

Don't forget, As of January 29th, if you purchase your game at Best Buy you get early access to Party Rock Anthem via code.

*edit*
Still having trouble with some of those snap moves on Venus (smooth snap) and for some reason I can't get a flawless on the move smush even I gotten it on DC1 songs and such. Hip pound is hit and. On What is love, I have trouble with slow pop and pretty much get nice on rest of the moves no matter how hard I try.

I have enough room, kinect is wall mounted at 6 ft, I'm only 5'6, lighting is good but not too much, I've calibrated the kinect via body tracking and the deep calibration with the face placard. I can understand having trouble with Get Ur Freak on easy, but it's trying me batty with the troubles I'm having with Venus and What's Is Love.

Just woke up. And did Venus three times.

Venus (some pointers not sure they will help)

Smooth snap - you alternate rotating body about 25 degrees. Your hands start over your abs then end with a snap

Smush - has a hip drop, first hand goes up and stays up, second hand goes up, both hands drop

Hip pound- has a hip drop, slight alternating body rotation

I will try What is love in little bit.

I checked out Best Buy in Clackamas, OR. No Party Rock DLC code fliers like control. Asked an employee and the system didn't have an addon for the code at the register either.

I wonder if the early access is only for like a week before release or so.

On a side note, I got one of those tv mounts for kinect just to see if it would help, put it on, calibrated the knect fully, played venus first gold star, and then 5 starred what is love. Having it wall mounted at 6 feet, with my height at 5'6 and weight of 270 (which I'm trying to lose) wasn't tracking well enough for those moves

Looks like it really is early access.

I got my first gold stars yesterday. On the easiest track in the game and on Easy difficulty. That being Poker Face from DC1, but still it's something. :) I played it in DC2 with the imported tracks. Then found that Medium difficulty wasn't much harder. Got 5 stars on it, and then again on Hard difficulty.

If you purchased DC2 at Best Buy prior to 1/29/2012, you can get Party Rock Anthem for $3 if you have your receipt or credit/debit card used to make the purchase. I did not have either since I didn't have the receipt and I used a giftcard to make my purchase but the guy still let me buy it.

I've edited the wiki, added DC2 reviews, added the DC2 on disc songs, have all the DLC up there now. Let me know how it looks and if you have any advice what to add/change.
