Good Things Do Come in Threes with Tap Tap Revenge 3

It's got avatars, chat, and premium songs, oh my! Soon-to-be-released Tap Tap Revenge 3 focuses on the social side of things, and it looks like it might pull it off well. Or maybe I'm just giddy about the Tiësto tracks.

Avatars and chat are the key to Tap Tap Revenge 3's social side. The game is boasting hundreds of avatar items to truly personalize your lil' character though we'll see just how customizable the avatars are when I'm pouting over the lack of a "frizzy hair" option. The screenshots of the chat lobby and personal messages are reminding me of some earlier Twitter apps, so that might turn out quite well.


Aside from the pure awesomeness of the Tap Tap Revenge series, this version will be extra awesome because it is among the first iPhone apps to take advantage of the App Store's in-game commerce capabilities. Meaning that you can make purchases through the game, using your iTunes account.
