Dance Central Spotlight is coming exclusively for the Xbox One on September 2, and while the $9.99 digital download will come with 10 songs, Harmonix has been promising many more tracks to shake your groove thing to. They’ve recently confirmed a bunch of the DLC tracks that will be available for $1.99 each when the game launches, and it continues to be a great mix of current hits and classic jams so everyone can find something they’ll enjoy!

Remember, if you own Dance Central 1, 2 and/or 3, you’ll be able to import those songs as well, though they haven’t confirmed a specific date when that will be possible. So until then, you can enjoy the 10 tracks included with Dance Central Spotlight as well as the songs I’ll list after the jump!

First, let me apologize for my absence from GayGamer! I was lost in the cornfields of Iowa performing some seriously cool operas with not nearly enough time for writing, and when there was time to write, well, napping. I’ve been road tripping since then and my trusty Xbox360 has been stuck in a duffle bag between two beach towels, none of which have seen the light of day all month. But there’s been a recent development in the world of reality television that I couldn’t just not write about.

I don’t know if you’ve heard about The Quest, but it’s this LARP-ing, Renaissance Faire, B Movie, Reality TV Competition hybrid and there are just SO many ways to feel about it. All these mixed emotions welling up inside me, and I just had to watch the first two episodes on my dad’s DVR storage. This was a decent decision. Here’s Episode 1. SPOILER ALERT.

Sunset Overdrive keeps on making me happy. This colorful, irreverent approach to shooters was one of very few things keeping me from falling asleep during this year’s E3 press conferences. Following E3, and the massive backlash Ubisoft saw for not including a playable female assassin in Assassin’s Creed Unity, developer Insomniac Games threw a bit of shade Ubisoft’s way by showcasing the ability to make one in this game. Today in the newest episode of Sunset TV, where Brandon Winfrey shares updates on the highly anticipated title, it was announced that characters can switch between genders at any time during the game.

While answering a question about the ability to modify a character’s appearance after their initial creation it was said that,

“You can change any part of your appearance at any time. So that means body type, skin tone, anything. So if you wanna be a girl one day, do it, and you can switch back to a guy the next.”

Was Mario Kart 8 not quite weird enough for you? Were there little tweaks you wish were made to the gameplay? Well, you might be interested in an update that’s scheduled for Wednesday, August 27 that will include some new vehicles and gameplay features. (Not coincidentally, that date is also the 22nd anniversary of the original Super Mario Kart, which has just been conveniently released for download in the eShop for $7.99.)

At this year’s Game Developers Conference, long-time editor and localization specialist Michelle Clough gave a talk about male sexuality in video games. Having covered a few of the same points on gaming’s sexual double standard and the oddities of Cho Ainiki myself (albeit far less eloquently), I wanted to explore the topic with Michelle a bit more from her perspective. I recently reached out to her about bishonen men, fan service, and how games can better depict romance and sex outside of just the squishy bits.

Readers be warned, we are of off the normal waters explored in Gay Gamer in these parts. Here, there be fan-girls.
