Yeah, I do. Not as much as I used to though. I was really into Dance Dance Revolution before I found Beatmania and Guitar Freaks. But all I really play now is Pop'n Music. My fiancee and I purchased a Desktop Arcade Pop'n Music Controller about a year ago because we enjoy playing it so much.
The games themselves seem to be typical prices but it's the shipping that's a killer ... unless you use that SAL shipping which is shipping by sea. :P Of course, that's only for the patient people cuz it takes weeks for that stuff to come. :B
Pentavision released DLC for DJMCE and DJMBS. I downloaded the one for Clazziquai Edition and to a crapoid player like me, they really jacked up the difficulty for the Club Tour and made some Normal mode patterns into Hard or MX ones. OTL
Creator 4B with the DLC update destroys me thumbs. I have major problems doing the left, up, triangle, and circle or vice versa patterns. I do believe you're typically supposed to just run your left thumb across the left and up and the right one across the triangle and circle but I don't have the reflexes to do it to it in time with the notes. >_>
What's worse is that I'm playing the game on a plump PSP. >__________<
Man, there's too many games in this genre, and they're all generally too expensive. $200 for a preschool guitar, a preschool drum kit, and a preschool microphone? Maybe later on in life, when I can afford all of that.
If you ever do play it, try a few of the absolute easiest songs first and foremost, and once you've gotten the hang of it, look for "Train Train". There is no better song to get a person hooked on DrumMania than Train Train. It's fun in Taiko no Tatsujin, but it's AMAZING in DrumMania. And despite appearances, it's easier to play than it looks.
I HATE TRAIN TRAIN. Ever since hearing/playing it in TnT Portable, I now avoid it like a plague. (It's in the Wii version too.) Linda Linda is infinitely better.
The one song I loved to play in DM was Ai no Shirushi by Puffy. XD I believe it's one of the easiest tunes on whatever version I was playing but still fun~!!!
I played the song on GuitarFreaks as well and sang along to boot!!! XD!

That still won't stop me from not liking the actual song. :E
Ugh. Man~ I've been playing DJMAX Trilogy for the past 2 days and GODDAMMIT, the missions piss me off. There's this one 5-Key mission where you're supposed to get fever 2 times in a stage and I KNOW I can clear the requirement with the first, third, and fourth songs without issue but aaaaaaaaaaaaaargh, I can't get 3x fever on the 2nd song for the life of me. I've played it about 5 times in a fucking row and my shitty accuracy just doesn't allow me to get another fever. >___<
I've never been able to do the song on Portable 2 well and it just so happens that the bloody Trilogy version uses the same freakin' note pattern!
UGH!! It's so damn frustrating to know that I can't pass it because of ONE FUCKING TUNE.
As for Pop'n Music... yeah, it's destined to fail, and being horribly mishandled by Konami, just as Rock Revolution was. But again, at least they're kinda sorta making an effort. Someone just needs to teach them what effort IS, and how to go about making it, because this is just getting kind of pathetic now.
I can kind of see it taking off over there cuz the culture's different but over here? Uh, no. Besides, we all know KoA's gonna swap out the fun Jpop tunes for punkass popular English music.
I KNOW I shouldn't pass judgement on this but just the thought of using those two controllers ... ugh.
There's also a mini argument going on at the Bemanistyle news about the localization of the title. Apparently, KoA doesn't have a say in what sort of shit goes into this stuff? I guess all KoA's responsible for is translating everything into English? I find that kind of hard to believe cuz I'd figure that the song list is something that the American side would have a hand in.
Totally try before you buy. I found myself really enjoying the controller interface, even with songs I usually disliked. The cool thing is each "Song" is actually 2 different tracks mixed together, which adds a whole bunch of originality.
I am playing DJ MAX Portable 2 for about a year, maybe more I have songcount about 1600 songs, so as you can see i am not playing it all the time.. anyone playing some djmax portable editions? (BS, CE, P2, P)
//Also i started with taiko no tatsujin on psp and ps2, but djmax is on higher level (in rhythm-based videogames) i think but i loove songlist in TnT 1+2 for psp
