A younger player asked me this evening if there are any articles written about Dance Dance Revolution and its evolving history. I don't know of any, but maybe one of our hard core music gamers knows of such an article? Thanks -Pac-man-Pat ... See moreSee less

Lob StarmagnetThis focuses on Japan but it's an interesting read. www.amazon.com/Counting-Combos-History-Japanese-Community/dp/1475003161 There's lots of other articles of things like konami acquiring the InThe Groove IP and things about USA location tests but those are mainly testimonials from other players. Illinois has a rich ddr history. Konami and betson location tested the first American eamusement network at the naperville Brunswick zone. It's since gone far down hill but it's an interesting piece of history. Ddr supernova 1 - x were tested there. Supernova 2 was online and was the only location outside of konamis HQ machine. The supernova 2 location test was recreated at mgc 2015.

Chris Davis-FalcoAlso, it's not an article but this video goes though every variation of the game including what features were added at each generation (or removed occasionally) with video and music demonstrations. grab a snack and a beverage it's a long ride but well worth it. m.youtube.com/watch?v=Nec-a_EddxQ

Thanks everyone for a fantastic Pac-man celebration weekend here at Star Worlds. Really cool seeing so many kids love pinball and some of them are getting pretty good at The walking dead :). A special shout out to Ken who came in on Sunday and pretty much played every version of Pac-man in honor of Pac-man's B day. Have a great week everyone. Pac-mna-Pat ... See moreSee less
