LOL, I'll probably play, but i don't know about entering the tourney...I'm a pretty good player, but I usually play more casually than competing, but I might enter if its at a convenient time.

Erm...I doubt I'll do a DDR tourney...but I have a MAX version of Alice's costume (A-team, in other words), that I'm considering on bringing. I'll just need a new wig for it before Otakon...I hate the blue one I had to decide to bring to Acen.

If I'm where I want to be at (i.e. Passing Catas) then I may enter for fun. If not....Mini Tourney it is.

I'm okay at DDR, and I'll be honing my skills up until then, so.. I may enter the tourney, if there's a section for beginners or intermediates, and not just people who can do Oni Mode without breaking a sweat.

<<Neko Cathy- I love your sig pic, it's adorable!>>\
U want it? PM me and you can use it.

<<I think I'll enter... I think alot of people mind find it humorous seeing Lupin the III play DDR lol, most likely I'll enter the Maniac division>>
That's great... Megaplayboy's going as Onizuka from GTO and will be DDRing. Sadly, he's not going as my Akira for Otakon like he did for Katsu. I'm also thinking about doing the Maniac division or I'll be mocked as a coward for doing Standard by my friends. I don't think the judges would like my freestyling in a mini-skirt when everyone could see my panties... I can see doing that would disqaulify me instantly. Other than that... I'll perform the DDR version of the Riverdance on Maniac

<<having a mini-"tourney" in hotel room for fun? you know it!>>
SWEET! Just don't make too much noise for the hotel staff to complain and kick you out because Katsucon tried to kick my semi-group members out for banging around w/ DDR up in the room.

<<If I'm where I want to be at (i.e. Passing Catas) then I may enter for fun. If not....Mini Tourney it is.>>
I'm not that good either to win tourney's yet, but I'm slowly getting there (F YOU MAX300!!!). I'm pretty sure someone who has absolutely no life but DDR, can come in and own me so bad. Megaplayboy and this girl cosplaying as Emi I've met at the arcade (I'm also hanging out w/ her) can whoop my ass in a DDR tourney even though my skills are almost matched to theirs. I'm pretty good, can pull a 9 footer w/ a B rating, but I'm not that damn good. If people wanna see a DDR character DDRing, why pass it up? It's still fun and hey, at least you tried and learned something about it to improve.

<<I may enter the tourney, if there's a section for beginners or intermediates, and not just people who can do Oni Mode without breaking a sweat.>>
There is, but be prepared to stick around the gaming room for a long time. Last time I heard, the whole damn tourney took the entire day on Saturday last year and if it's going to be the same for this year... I might consider skipping the Tourney and just DDR in a non-competitive level (and yes, there are DDR stations that aren' used for the tourney). I'm not sticking around for just one event and miss out on the events going on at at the entire con.

lol i know abou thte ddr in the hotel room at kastu thing.... lol... well, not that version, but we had a similiar experience. the person staying next to us complained. we were playing it during the day when people are suppose to be out doing whatever they're to do.... i think he was just cranky about the snow..... but yeah... i hear ya about the banging. ^o^ (lives in an apt and can't play ddr.) i'm paraniod anyways with the banging. i could play right now knowing there's no one hom eunder me, but a part of me is like... what IF they ARE home! lmao

Dude yea, the Katsucon staff members were a bunch of dicks. The hotel staff members were cool with everything, it was the Katsucon staff who bitched about DDR in the hotel rooms. Plus it's against hotel rules to bring your own TV/video game equipment from what I heard from another person... . But other than that, bringing your own DDR equipment to the hotel room is a great way to warm up before the tourney.

But yea, cheer me and the other Cosplay.com people on for having the guts to go in front of everyone and do their thing on the DDR pad. If not, then that's cool too, do whatever. LoL... Neko Cathy 3:16.

If there are any open machines not in the tourney, THAT's where I'll be. Definitely.
