Welcome to DDR Freak

DDR Freak served the Dance Dance Revolution community from March 2000 to October 2011. Thank you to everyone for making it happen.

Oct 21, 2011 - Machine Locations - J Dogg
There have been some questions regarding what will happen to the machine locations section. I intend to continue to keep running the Machine Locations section, and anything else that is useful to a large number of people. It will probably require some tweaking in how it decides a modification is valid, since the traffic is much lower than it used to be. I've also kept most of the DDR-related forums intact so the information there can still be used by people.

Most of the articles are back up now, although some of them are missing some data or need editing.

Oct 19, 2011 - DDR Freak: March 2000 - October 2011 - J Dogg
It's the end of the DDR Freak world as we know it. Thanks for the ride, everyone! We started out in March 2000 with the crazy idea of promoting DDR in the San Francisco Bay Area, and we ended up doing a heck of a lot more than that. Thank you to all the users and staff who made it possible. Give us a shout out on twitter using the #ddrfreak hashtag with your favorite memories.

The old server has been taken out of its former facility, and it will continue to live on as a mostly static website. Not everything has been moved over to the new (much smaller) server, but I plan to move all the old articles back as soon as I can. Current ETA is Nov 1, since the old server has some hardware issues. Forums will be completely locked down due to spam issues.

Aug 2, 2010 - 2010 DanceDanceRevolution US Championships! - The Mole
Oh lord they are at it again. I only post this because I was recently contacted by a company rep named brooke that is representing the tournament planning for konami asking if id be interested in holding a round one tournament at my location.

The 2010 DanceDanceRevolution US Championship consists of three rounds.

Round One is underway. In order to qualify for Round Two of the tournament, participants need to finished in first, second, or third place in their respective Round One Tournament.

Round Two is Regionals

The Round Three Finals take place the weekend of December 4th, 2010 at a six flags location yet to be determined.

The top four scores across all regional qualifiers in each age group are eligible to participate in the finals.

I still haven't received any rule sets or more info other then whats on the website and pdf i was sent. Hopefully konami will learn from last year but so far things look grim.


May 28, 2010 - Navy General eyes Dance Dance Revolution for boot camp. - The Mole
We understand that Wii Fit has dubious health benefits at best (whatever CTA Digital might say top the contrary), but apparently word hasn't reached the Navy's top brass. According to the Navy Times, recruits need more work than ever before to get into fighting shape, "given that many young people prefer computers and video games" to sports and physical activity. The solution, says Navy Surgeon General Vice Adm. Adam Robinson, is to use break in would-be sailers slowly, introducing "the equivalents of Nintendo's Wii Fit or Konami's Dance Dance Revolution" in basic training. This sounds rather silly to us, but what do we know? We're lovers, not fighters.

Prominent Japanese manga publisher Manga University has announced the upcoming launch of "StepMania: The Manga," an all-new original comic based on the wildly popular dance/rhythm video game. Made in consultation with the game's creator, Chris Danford, and written by up-and-coming Japanese manga artist Uno Shino, "StepMania: The Manga" follows the exploits of a brash high-schooler named Yukino as she is thrown headfirst into the world of StepMania by her best friend and veteran dancer Momo, who works at the local arcade.
