GuitarFreaks & DrumMania V4 Location Test Pictures

October 1, 2007

I went out to to the GFDM V4 Location Test on Sunday and I had a great time, I even got to have a conversation with one of the Konami reps which was pretty cool. I took a bunch of pictures, but only some of them came out even half way decent with my crappy cell phone camera… I’m still saving up for a digital camera so I apologize to you guys once again and hopefully I’ll have better pictures for you in the near future. Here’s the link to check out the pictures…

If you haven’t gone to the location test yet,  you should try to check it out to support Konami and make sure GFDM is brought to the U.S.. The test will last about three weeks according to the Konami rep I talked to so try to make it out to Naperville before that. I assure you that you won’t regret it.

GuitarFreaks/DrumMania V4 U.S. Location Test

September 22, 2007

I was waiting all summer for them to announce the U.S location test for V4 and I almost lost hope, but thankfully it has finally been announced and it will begin on September 30 at the Brunswick Zone in Naperville, IL. I’m probably going to be there on the first day of testing and I am also going to try to make it out there a couple more times, so if anyone else is going leave a comment and let me know. I’ll try to post some pictures and info when I go for the people who can’t make it to the location test. I’m so excited that I finally get to put my e-AMUSEMENT PASS to use again! I hope to see you guys there!


No SuperNova 2 AC for North America until 2008

August 26, 2007

According to a posting on the Aaron in Japan forums, DDR SuperNova 2 will not be released in the U.S. until sometime in 2008. This kind of makes me sad, but hopefully it means we’ll get a bug free game and it will give them some time to make sure that we have e-AMUSE here in as many places as possible.


DDR SuperNova 2 Site Updated, Released in Japan

August 22, 2007

The site has been update with the music list and and e-AMUSEMENT section has been added to the How To Play section.

Also, Konami has sent out the SuperNova 2 upgrade kits so arcades in Japan should have it, so hopefully there will be some more updates soon.

DDR SuperNOVA 2 Location Test

July 27, 2007

So,  today I drove an hour and a half to the Brunswick Zone in Naperville for the DDR SuperNOVA 2 location test, and I thought I would tell you guys how I thought it was. The first thing I did when I got to the arcade was by an e-AMUSEMENT PASS, which is a card used for Konami arcade games in Japan to save your data such as unlocked songs. This is the first time that e-AMUSE has been used in the U.S. so I was pretty excited. When you first play SuperNOVA 2 you are asked if you have an e-AMUSEMNT PASS and when you put in you are asked for your name and the state you live in. The state that the machine is located in is automatically highlighted. Then you are asked to make up a four digit pin number which will be used everytime you put in your card. Finally you are asked if you would like to use the workout mode and if you select yes it asks for your weight. Now you are ready to begin playing. So now you’re probably wondering how the actual game is,well since I’m pretty much a noob at DDR I can’t really comment on the stepcharts since I didn’t play on anything higher than Basic, so… I’ll talk about the song selection. SuperNOVA 2 has songs from DDR Extreme, SuperNOVA and new songs. There are also songs that you can only unlock when using the e-AMUSEMENT PASS as you level up.  The new songs in Supernova 2 varied in how much I enjoyed them, I didn’t like how there was a lot of American songs, but if that’s your style than you should still enjoy the new songs. The new songs weren’t all bad however as I enjoyed many of them, but I still stuck mostly to old songs. The thing that I liked the most was the e-AMUSEMENT PASS and how it kept track of how many calories you’ve burned since you started playing and it also keeps track of your high scores and everything that you have unlocked. It really made me want to keep playing and I’m really glad that Konami decided to bring e-AMUSE to the U.S. So that’s my impression of DDR SuperNOVA 2 and hopefully you’ll get to try it out either at the location test or when it’s actually released sometime later this year in the U.S. (hopefully). The Japanese release is scheduled for late August.

Here’s the information for the location test for those of you who want to go
