I don't go to arcade games much nowadays.
At least not as much as when I was 15 when arcade gaming centres are like religious temples to me. Nowadays, XBoxes and PS2s are around with better games and much superior graphics. About the only time I'd play in the arcade right now now is when I feel like kicking some sorry asses in Daytona USA.
I spotted this curious-looking machine when I was in Sibu earlier during the week.
It's a Para Para machine. Para Para, is of course, a type of dance move that rivals only the Melbourne Shuffle in terms of popularity. The only difference is that instead of shuffling your feet madly like you're holding your pee and wanna go to the toilet, you move your arms madly like you're scolding that idiot who's taking too much time inside the toilet.
I remember when I was at Mambo Night in Zouk Singapore a few months back, the nerdy college kids on the platform did it with such style I said to myself "Mannn... one day, I want to be just like them!"
Anyway, I decided to give the machine a shot.
The Para Para machine has an octagonal platform with sensors around it to detect hand movements. You're supposed to move your hands in sync with the moving arrows on screen. And this is how I went.
My condolences to all the mosquitoes I whacked during the dance.
