Encore Extra Stage #10

Welcome to Friday! The last Friday of 2004, as a matter of fact!

Come to think of it, my column will be the last TWO columns you’ll read this year in the Games section. No one else, other than Alex Lucard, managed to write anything in between last Friday and this Friday. Dipping into the champagne a bit early, eh guys?

And as such, I am inclined to buy this particular version of the game to round out my collection. Sure, the game is chocked full of songs I already have spanned across numerous game systems, but there ARE some other songs that I haven’t played yet. And new songs equate to new challenges, and I’m all for them in any form.

Add to the fact that “un deux trois” was included with EyeToy options, and I couldn’t say no. I was a MUST PURCHASE at that point.

No, I’m not obsessed. What makes you think THAT?!?!
