WOW

I take it the white swirls are the Wiimote moves? Looks shit.

EA should leave this sort of thing to Nintendo.

Well, pretty good opportunity for some site-pimpage here, considering you're the first. All that said, that video looks pretty.... weird? It certainly made me curious, but I'd like to see more 'substance' (i.e. some of the other stuff in the PR release) than just a woman dancing without any idea of how or why she's dancing :lol

Hope this comes out okay, what happen to the Pikmin/Night Before Christmas stage? I want to see that one in motion. Glad to see there will be different types of characters to choose from though, thought they'd all look like Spongebob character rip-offs.

The man said SINGING IS GONE.

I got 5 screenshots going up too, but I thought video would be best :)

Looks good! Now I wanna see a video showing Wiimote controls and the microphone (It's an official Nintendo accessory I believe isn't it?)

Doesn't look bad at all, even if they're small... but I still don't know what the heck is going on in those pics... yeah, they're dancing... but how? Isn't it some kinda policy to show the Wiimote/Nunchuk on these things or something? Or was that only at launch? :D edit: the bigger versions look a bit blurrier, but perhaps that's due to JPG compression.

I kind of liked the goofy alien dude they showed before. These new Bratz characters? Not so much. I'll pass on this for sure.

Yeesh, could anybody other than middle ageds looking for nostalgia enjoy this? I'm sorry, it just barely looks like a game.

Yeah, I know... I mean I can hardly ever get my grandmother to stop playing DDR: Extreme!

Somebody not reading the part about different selectable/customizable characters? *slaps forehead* Where's AniHawk and his Simpsons GIFS when you need em.

It seems like you get different background/stage for different character template, it seems. All the Whorez will probably dance on that highschool stage motif and fat alien guy is gonna dance in Nightmare Before Christmas ripoff motif.

Hehe Vooks, think you may have made a booboo.
The game will features 40 decades of music
40? That's slightly high ain't it?
Or are we supposed to be partying like it's 1607? :p

I think I like how the game looks, but the animation that was shown in the trailer was completely chaotic. That's no dancing...
Otherwise there seems to have pretty cool ideas thrown around and we barely saw how the game controls. We will see how it turns out.

how can you consider something that looks like one of the machine's best games graphically, under an entirely original IP, using licensed music, a new control system for the remote, and a ****ing microphone attachment a quick cash in god DAMN THERE ARE SO MANY STUPID PEOPLE ON THIS FORUM

This does not.

Perfectly able to grasp the inherent value of the fishing game.

Yeah must its not out till the end of the year.

Er hang on a second, EA are giving this game a decent dev period? in it's current state I thought it would be a June release or something, wow, anticipation level rising, at this rate they might actually be able to have the time to add a decent level of polish and glamour to the game like it deserves to have.

EA are being so confusing, making hap-hazard tosh like "EA playground" but then also giving a good dev period for this, and of course putting some serious effort into MySims, good grief EA, either support the Wii properly or not at all, :p

There is something kind of odd about that video, the way the camera at times seem to move with the character, and crazy nonsense type of dance she's doing, and flashing aura with sparks emanating from her (like an indicator similar to SSX when you do a trick). Its almost as if its in game footage.

Not bad. It's good to see that they are different settings for both stages and characters. Not to keen on the Bratz vibe these characters give me but if I can go back to that other dude shown in the first batch of screens-no problem.

I'm interested in the singing, I hope you can combine singing and dancing, that would be pretty sweet.

Between this and Singstar my gf will probably have friends over every weekend.

Oh I hope the bad framerate is due to the video encoding Vooks?

still looks interesting to me. Original graphics style...

A lot depends on the tracklist for a game like this, so let's hope they have a variety of not-too-annoying to good songs.
