It arrived today. I just got to try it out. And DAMN is this thing w00t.
I sucked at first because I hadn't played DDR in months, so I was failing 4-footers for a little while because I needed to relearn how to find the arrows and step on them authoritatively. Being slightly offbeat didn't help, either. Luckily, relearning was a swift process for me, and I passed some of my 7-foot favorites before deciding that I had had enough. I don't think I'll get to play any more until we come back from our Christmas trip to Pittsburgh, but still, I'm psyched that I'll finally be able to improve at DDR. And being able to do high-intensity cardio at home is a real bonus as well. ^_^
