    Tetris Effect - Mizuguchi does Tetris

    I thought it was quite interesting to see that the various new age / nature / human civilisation / evolution type imagery with zen music and all that didn’t actually begin with Tetris Effect. Looks like the CDi version did it years ago. Makes you wonder if they intentionally researched some of the more obscure versions when developing Effect.

    John Linneman did a really good DF Retro piece on the major versions of Tetris, he rates Effect highly. It’s a good video that breaks down the various changes and additions, and whenever they were implemented across each release and all that:

    Interesting, I thought it was solid but I really prefer the Muggs record. Plus, I think Rosebudd’s Revenge 2: The Bitter Dose was up there as a top 3 Marci album. Promise me you’ll go back and revisit it thoroughly if I do the same with Dark Horse? EDIT: Originally this post made out that Rosebudd’s Revenge 1 was the stronger record. I meant The Bitter Dose. I can’t fucking keep up with this shit.

    White Bronco is fucking ill. I could take or leave Action’s major label stuff, Mr Wonderful and all that. I get that he’s a charismatic entertainer, a real star, but it’s not until he’s back on that independent underground shit that he really shines for me. Back to the jazzy, soulful boombap shit. Queens shit, like that man says. Love him when he’s in this mode.

    This chat about it being a bit expensive is kinda silly when you think about it. This is the type of game that you could potentially get hundreds of hours out of. That said, which retailer has the nicest “full price” for physical preorder? I’m not seeing it available anywhere as yet.

    Oh yeah, I totally meant to recommend people check that out. It reminded me of a more celestial and slightly ravey version of the mad shouty cunts that did the Akira soundtrack. Fucking brilliant.

    Also, this is probably the first modern Tetris I’ve played. Enjoying the mechanic where I can swap blocks and keep them in reserve and all that. Keeping on track of that tactic just further added to the whole trance-like “in the zone” state for me, multitasking by keeping an eye on the reserve and swapping them in and out as the speeds increase and everything begins to bubble and verge on going tits-up, all the while dolphins and fire pagans fly in and out of my face, wanking flames and stardust, fuck

    I haven’t quite got the hang of zone mode yet, either. The best I’ve managed is maybe 9 or 10 lines, made up of one 4-line Tetris and a doss stack of singles and doubles added on. The day I land my first quadruple 4 x 4-liner in zone mode will be glorious.

    Rez cunt, you beautiful magnificent bastard I will buy this game full price. Check out the wee melodic piano tinkles as you rotate the blocks further into level 1. I love the way the musical layers are gradually added, and synced and tuned to your actions. I found myself timing my rotations, and spinning a few additional ones just so I could pretend I was playing along to that epic track. It’s sublime.

    Is Read Dead Redemption 2 any good?

    Can you invert the X-axis of the camera? GTA V was unplayable for me because you couldn’t.
