Anyone planning on getting a PSP owes it to themselves to get this game.

My God. It's like Tetris had sex with the pure essence of techno and had produced a child greater than either.

Bahaha, I have problems with that in Tetris, but until I turn ~60 I doubt getting a long one will be a problem. ;)

Wait a minute, am I to infer that there's a whole sub-culture of Tetris sexual innuendo that I've been previously and blissfully unaware of?

. . . Actually, no, no, I just don't want to know.

So when you toss the long one down the deep hole you've found, will she scream "Tetris!" ?

This is becoming one of those topics that I want to reply to with just a long, caps lock'd scream.

Lumines looks frickin' awesome.

My new best record: 258813 at level 95

I started to think some weird things around level 60...

The blocks started to move slower, so I was expecting the next skin to be fast, to trick me. But they didn't. Over and over, they didn't...I started to wonder if they actually were and I had achieved some sort of state of perfect gaming bliss where everything moved slower. Like I had become a celestial Lumines being created to serve the game....

...you think I'm joking but I'm not...

I should stop for a while.

man lumines is amazing.  it's the best puzzle game since super puzzle fighter II turbo.  and yeah at level sixty it slows waaaaay down to give you a breather for about ten levels.  I don't get it either but hey if it weren't for that I would never have gotten to level 109.

Oh yes. Lumines IS Tetris 2. If I end up playing to level 125 billion jillion or something, and the super-secret Tetris skin shows up, I think I would die of excitement.
