As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve managed to do two of the three things on DDR that I feel I need to do before I can walk away from the DDR pad fully satisfied of what I’ve done. First was to pass PSM Oni – check. Second was to get an A on a “genuine” 10-footer – check. Third, and finally, was to accumulate a total of 25 AAAs, a goal of which I’m three AAAs short.
Obviously, I haven’t played DDR nearly as much as I used to, so it might take me a while to re-familiarize myself with any song I attempt to AAA, and certainly ITG’s new timing windows have probably done more harm for my sense of rhythm than good (seeing as the window for an Excellent in ITG is more lax than that of a Perfect in DDR). And of course, my mounting frustration about coming up short on my AAA attempts was one of the reasons I was in the doldrums late in the year and gave up the game in the first place. Still, though, it would be nice to be able to say that I did everything I set out to do in the game and be able to play it without any further regard for progress.
