I've never "finished" a Dance Central game because, every time I start playing, the booze eventually runs out, and/or people eventually go home. I could play it sober, by myself, but, um, no.
Dance Central 3 isn't just the superior choreography experience gamers can get this year. It's also a video game that embeds homages to arcade classics and pop cultural ephemera deep inside super-clever, split-second easter eggs.

If you're at PAX Prime this weekend be sure to head over to Harmonix's booth, where cosplayers dancing on stage is hilarious. You can also pick up some fancy slap watch bracelets that make me feel like I'm I'm elementary school again.
You know that feeling when you finally get your hands on the BFG 9000 in Doom or the gravity gun in Half-Life 2? It's a sensation that you're about to become nigh-omnipotent, able to blast enemies out of existence withlittle effort. It gives you goosebumps.

Everybody's favourite - or secretly favourite - Kinect game, Dance Central, just got its second sequel.
