Today's my birthday. For the past few years I've set a fitness challenge for myself: on my birthday, dance my age in DDR 10-footers. I started on my 40th
with 4 10-footers. On my 41st
I did 4 10s, adding a modifier on one that made the arrows twitch weirdly to bump up the difficulty a tad. Here are the results for this year:
, DDR Extreme 2. I was originally going to dance Paranoia Survivor
, as I lose it half the time during the Sakura
slowdowns, but I decided to try anyhow, and passed. Kinda like tripping, falling, and missing the floor.Horatio
, DDR X. This song has wicked 32nd-note runs that go with the flamenco guitar. It's very easy to wipe out on those runs - if you don't tire out, you're likely to get just a tad off rhythm, and WHAM.
This one's just weird. I've only played it a few times, and I didn't even remember it when I started, so I was all over the place!
I love Bend Your Mind.
It's steps are weird and chaotic and you have to hit arrows with your hands as well as your feet. Great for showing off. I do this one every year. A pity the picture came out so crappy.
A little extra. Pandemonium
Medium, 9 feet, 330 BPM, with extra modifiers: Accelerate, which makes the arrows speed up when they near the top rather than traveling at a constant rate; Dizzy, which means the arrows spin like pinwheels rather than pointing in one direction; and Flip, which reverses the target arrows so they point RUDL instead of LDUR. Let me tell you, this was the goofiest DDR stunt I've ever tried. Next year I'll top it by tap dancing Max 300
in a vat of oatmeal.
Oh, I also FPC-AAAed Ubertreffen
Standard, 8 feet. Nyaa haa.
