Why, yes. Yes I am Lumines. Thank you for asking.

The idea behind "Amidst The Blather" is that I spin off from posts in the Operation Sports Forums. Consider this contractual obligation met. Perhaps even exceeded.

Nice read, Fossen. Lumines has me addicted as well.

Lumines is just incredible. Honestly, saying it's a the "new tetris" almost does it a disservice, as it's much more immersive in quality.

And man, the amount of unlockables are insane.

Yeah - the skins/music really push it past what Tetris was .... it's a bit of REZ, as well.

Tetris just comes to mind, because that's the archetype of the simple puzzler that is insanely addictive. Also, because I remember the great success that the GameBoy had with Tetris .... here's another handheld with an addictive puzzler that could drive sales.

has Nintendo ever put out a new version of Dr. Mario on the handhelds? That game was killer back in the day

I know this is Lumines, but Sony throwing out this addicting puzzle game was smart, and just wondering if Nintendo has ever tried that since Tetris

I could not resist all this Lumines talk! So I went and purchased it today and I cannot put it down! I would have never given this game the time of day if I had not read what you guys said about it.

Nintendo came out with Tetris Attack and Pokemon Puzzle Challenge(aka Panel De Pon), the best puzzle game ever made. I've owned Lumines since its release in Japan and it's awesome as well. Well deserving of all the praise it gets. The only sports titles I own are Tiger Woods (great game on the handheld but with load times that will drive you nuts) and I owned Ridge Racers, which I found to be stunning, but bored of it rather quickly. Unfortunately the 2 baseball titles (MPV and MLB 2006) were both delayed till mid-end April.
