Happy birthday, Extreme!

Post by Merk » Tue Dec 24, 2013 11:39 pm

Christmas is almost here which means that DDR Extreme has turned 11 years old. 11 years later and it's still the best mix. Let's talk about our favorite Extreme moments!


I remember Wayne Rec, a bowling alley in Fort Wayne, was the surprisingly first place to get Extreme - even before Putt-Putt. For the first and last time Wayne Rec was a relevant arcade since Putt-Putt got Extreme shortly thereafter. But man, for like two weeks Wayne Rec was the place to be. I didn't have a car so I had to depend on one of my friends (who later become a psycho) to get there and I think I only got to play there once or twice. Being a bowling alley the machine was in awful condition and the music was essentially inaudible so of course everyone would fuck up songs like Stoic and Saint Goes Marching.

And that was my first experience with Extreme.

Here's a few:

* My first AAA on Kind Lady. I was so feeling myself. I ran a lap around the arcade and made way too big a production out of it.

* I slipped and fell during the end jumps in Afronova. I was so mad I kicked the machine then stormed off.

* Hanging out at Lazerlite with the locals arguing about who would pay 25 cents for a pitcher of water.

Extreme was definitely the mix I sunk the most time into. If only there were a cabinet nearby... :(
Music is a special thing because everyone is wrong on everything but it all works out in the end and we all get high as shit.

First played Extreme in January 2004 over at Gameworks (now Tilt) during an Indianapolis stop when I was on leave after graduating boot camp. Played regularly when we had an arcade nearby until it shut down.

Wait, that was almost ten years ago....

My favorite Extreme moment was trying the Legend of MAX for the first time. Even though it was on Beginner, I still found it to be a challenge back then. And I don't think I even passed it...
