Looks like the DLC sale has ended. I'm surprised they didn't let it go throughout the week, but they only promised the 15th, and that's what we got.

I too am loving part 3. I've only done a few songs in story mode so far though.

Besides new songs what is new to entice people to buy the game?

Look, there's no easy way to ask this so I'm just gonna do it...

Does anyone want to be gay lovers with me in Fable 3?

Multiplayer stuff I would say, there's a party mode, crew battles, and a fun freestyle mode where you try to match each other's moves.

I just wonder if the Ninja characters are in 3, as well.

I'm waiting for goddamn Expertzone to have it on the cheap, but that site has been so slow to update these days.

Got a bit if a dumb question, considering this is my 3rd DC game. But are these songs shortened from the regular versions? I created a set list (wish RB3 had a friggin shuffle mode) and noticed that 99% were under 3 minutes. Starships, for example is about 45 seconds shorter on DC3.

I may be wrong but I think there's an option either in the playlist creation or in party mode to set the length of the songs (short or full).

But if the box is white, that means its checked, right? Guess I'll uncheck and see what happens.

Edit--

Didn't change anything. Feeling very dumb/confused right now.

They are shortened versions of the songs, have been since the first game. I noticed it in the first game because I used to be a huge Cascada fan and "Evacuate the Dancefloor" was missing a verse.

I could be wrong, but I think they shorten it for some songs but not others. I know for a fact that they cut off a big chunk of Closer since that's the only DLC I've purchased, but did not notice any missing parts to the songs on disc for DC2.

Curious, but did anyone get any of the retail DLC songs?

And so far I am loving the game, but goddamn playing this game made me realize all over again how much I hate "Macarena". That truly is one of the worst songs ever.

I'm loving this game too. The story mode is goofy fun. So far that's all I've played, but it's a blast. I'm not that far in, but so far it's a got a great set of songs. And by great, I mean great for a dance game. :)

Oh and I love leveling up to get new outfits, characters and levels. Something I feel that is missing in games these days in rewarding multiple playthroughs. I Just wish I knew how high it leveled up to.

Here's my Dance Central 3 review. Feedback is appreciated. :)

Read through it and thought it was a good read. I Think only thing I'd ever ask for in the sequel is just full on 360 rotation to see the dance moves from more then just one set angle during break it down.

Oh and Gangnam Style and Call Me, Maybe confirmed as coming DLC. Also One Direction, more Bieber and LMFAO coming too. I Find Bieber to be the lesser of all evils in that announcement since I can't stand that Gangnam Style song... http://www.joystiq.c...l-me-maybe-and/

That's a great review, it's detailed and hits all the proper points but doesn't drag on too much.
Good to hear someone else finds the "new song available" notification annoying.

As for the Gangnam Style DLC song, I'm (admittedly) excited for it. It's the only song I've experienced, aside from Avicii's Levels song, where everyone in the club lost their shit when the DJ played it. It may be overplayed as hell but man, does it ever have a good beat.

Thanks for the kind words, Godly and Bardok! For some reason, Co-Optimus' readership (which is very Xbox 360-oriented) just doesn't care about the Dance Central games as much as I'd like. In all the articles we've done on them, there's never been one comment. (BTW, commenting on articles is a very nice thing to do because that's one way that developers and even editors judge the popularity of the articles and site).

'Gangnam Style' is obviously damn popular though. My article about the song coming to DC3 has already gotten 4 times the views of the Dance Central 3 review. Ya win some, you lose some. :)

Looking forward to Gangham Style too. Considering the how Harmonix essentially gave us literally EVERY dance craze in the past 5 years 3 to 4 years too late (from the Jerk and Solja Boy to the Dougie). Then again, it's not really that hard to do though, is it? Still it's good to have a must play song at any party with a Kinect and Xbox.

I'll be sure to leave a comment then. I Know Harmonix is awesome though because me and my friends use to do Rock Band nights and HMXSean once came to visit. He also gave us abunch of free swag. So me and my friends will always support whatever projects they got going.

And I'm still surprised that song is so popular. I'm definitely in the "I Don't get this" camp. Though I'll still get it and that god awful "Call Me Maybe" song as well just for completion sake.

Then again I think unless you're having a "Dance Party" every week I doubt people are going to really complain. Me and NONE of my friends know nothing of Dougie before this. Though whenever every few months my friends do have a get together with Dance Central, majority are too drunk after awhile to ask "why isn't this on there?" is what I've noticed.

I finished the story on easy yesterday. Fun mode, but the finale was lame (not the first part, but the part where it doesn't matter what you do). Not a big deal, though. Now I'll move on to just playing songs.

As someone who has been listening to Japanese music since 1999 I have no idea how gangam style made it big in the USA. It's definitely the first Asian song to make it big here. I also listen to Korean music but personally I find it quite difficult to listen to. It's much easier to hear the lyrics in Japanese music so one would think that it would have been some Japanese pop song to first make it big in the USA. There are enough good and catchy Japanese songs out there that one would think one of them would make it to the USA, trust me I know hundreds of catchy Japanese songs.

I am happy for the popularity of gangam style since now if someone catches me in the act of listening to my normal routine of Japanese songs I can just say its like gangam style and everything will be cool!

I am also happy that Nightline did a piece on Korean music and now I definitely feel like the cat is out of the bag on the Korean music industry which works basically the same as the Japanese music industry. They managed to explain in 2 min what would probably take me 30 min. Now everyone knows the Korean music industry exists and it's not a huge secret that only I know about (at least for my area).

I am getting DC3 since I won it in a contest but I will have to wait for it to arrive.

I'm having trouble playing the demo for Dance Central 3. Every time that I start it it only shows the rating screen. It seems like the game freezes at that point. Any tips on what I should do?

The production value and humor of the video are a big part, with the distinctive dance being the other key element. I think a lot of modern Japanese stuff is too weird and foreign to appeal to western audiences - most Japanese live-action movies these days are just plain horrible, for instance. And the skinny guys who look like women thing, that's not a big mainstream hit over here either. Gangnam Style is funny and a little weird, but it's not too hard to get thanks to the great visuals, dancing, and sound.

jman - I'd try deleting the demo and redownloading. It's worth a shot, anyway.

Gangnam Style should a lot of fun to play. I wish they'd given us a release date, but I have a feeling this was a reaction to Just Dance 4's announcement (which had a release date), and now they are going to figure out the details.
