Is the $29.95 Red Octane Taiko drum a good addition to save five bucks on shipping, or are those still cheaply available at GameStop and the like?

Normal DDR pads work fine on ItG. I am using CF pads when I play ItG. The pad advertised there will work fine for DDR as well since DDR does not use the bottom 2 corner buttons.

I just bought those drums at Gamestop for $14.99 (although it was tagged at $19.99) a week ago.

Yeah, but I am retired until I find a place to live that will support me jumping up and down.
Mrs. Cheapy and I gave it a go in our current apartment, but the floor is just too crappy. It sounds like the whole building is going to come tumbling down. I even bought a wood board to mount the pad on, but it was still way too noisy.

Thats cool. I am luckily in a townhome so no one below to get annoyed at me for playing. I have played every day (with the exception of one week I took off for health reasons) for about a year and a half now. Dropped 150 pounds and feel a LOT better. Still stuck at around the 8-9 foot level though. Doubles are fun and ItG Battle mode is fun, even against the computer.

Here's hopeing you get a way to play DDR again.

Got my bundle in the mail today. Really fast but I expected it since I live like a half hour away from Red Octane. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the package and they included a soundtrack, is everyone else getting it too?

The Red Octane guys were very pleased with the CAG response to this promotion.
So much so, they are likely to give CAG some exclusive deals.

If you want to check out http://www.redoctane.com/store.html you perhaps can play a role in what those exclusive deals will be.

Well, I did make it home this last weekend and I got a chance to play it. I am enjoying the song list on this one. I'll probably buy another copy for my nephew, because he too, liked the songs.

EDIT: Exclusive deals would be great! I'd definitely purchase Ultramix 3, Extreme 2, and Mario Mix from them if they had a special deal for CAG's.

That would be cool. I have told everyone at work that likes DDR about the deal and hopefully some of them will get in on it.

just ordered it, i hope its good, i figure its worth 20 for the game and 20 for the pad (i have one ok pad and one crappy crappy one) so can you guys tell me how good the pad is? compared to the konami one? i pretty much max at 8 steps, and even that doesnt always work out.

ITG is superior to DDR IMO. Songs average 2:00 mins on ITG, while only some of the longer songs on DDR reah 2:00 mins. 7, 8, 9 footers are much harder on ITG than on DDR. The "Fitness Mode" on ITG is also superior for those who want to lose some weight. Overall this is better than anything that DDR has to offer til now. We will see when Extreme 2 and Ultramix 3 comes out. Take it from a DDR Freak, ITG is teh roxor!

I disagree with the comment on the fitness mode. The ItG fitness mode is broken. I do not burn over 2000 calories doing one song in ItG. It just won't happen that way. I like ItG a lot, in fact I am playing it right now instead of DDR, but the fitness mode is extreamly broken and I much perfer the DDR:Max 2 fitness mode.
