    I really want to set fire to whoever thought it was a good idea to bring these little #@*$ back.

    So this game is one with dancing chipmunks and they dance to songs, some of which are really good but raped of their decency.

    Once again, that image of Simon is horrifying. Also, Theodore looks like he has evil plans for whatever unfortunate little boys and girls get this game for Happy Presents Day.

    The weird thing is that some of those songs are better than the ones in EBA.. :wtf:
    If weren't for the Chipmunks voices.. this could be a good game..

    I must admit, the song selection looks much better than in EBA. The Kinks, Elvis = all-time classics. R.E.M., blink-182, Kim Wilde, Culture Club, Chumbawumba, The B-52's... I rather have any of them instead of Avril Lavigne.

    I just noticed this. I wonder how they dealt with this song's many references to booze. I can't see the Chipmunks singing "I had a whisky drink" on a DS game.

    Was it as good a game as we all expected it to be?

    What did they change the booze references to?

    Did you truly expect it not to be?


    This is EBA, helium edition. (at least I imagine it to be.....I haven't actually played it yet.)

    Hmm my rom contains a somewhat different copilation. Some of them might be have different names, not sure.
    In order of appearance in story mode

    # Video killed the radio star
    # Shiny Happy People
    # Walking the Sun
    # I'll never let you go
    # Christmas Song (This could be the mentioned Chipmunk Song)
    # All the Small Things
    # I'm Gonna Be
    # Tubthumping
    # Rock 'n' Roll High School
    # You Really Got Me
    # Kids in America
    # It's tricky

    Bonus Songs:
    # Love Shack
    # I fought the law


    I've beaten the last song on hard with 90% using my left hand. Blame the cheerleaders... or maybe that ambidextrous game is starting to pay off..

    In Tubthumbin they are taking cherry drink, mango drink, soda drink and cider drink. The last one is also in the original (isn't that some wine kind of thing?). They're also "kissing the night away".
