I have never played a Lumines game I was suprised to see it as the highest rated Vita launch title. I've never really gotten into Tetris either, so I was wondering if I would like this. What makes these games so great, and keeps people coming back for more?
What's the deal with Lumines?
I'm really not surprised at all. If the Vita version is anything like the original then it's a fantastic, simple puzzle game with intensely colourful visuals and an amazing, reactive soundtrack. Personally, it's far and away my favorite puzzle game since Tetris, although if you don't really like Tetris then the whole "slowly-falling-block-puzzle" thing might not be for you. If you have an Xbox then I'd check out the Lumines Live demo for an idea of the general concept. If not then maybe check it out in a store or try out the original if you get the chance?
I've watched Seinfeld from season 1 to 9 about TWENTY TIMES, he never mentioned airplane food ONCE, nor did he do it on any of his stand up videos on youtube.. Is that the joke I'm missing? Or did he actually complain about airplane food somewhere?
Lumines, airplane food, its all the same.
Is it weird that whenever I look at the word, I can't make it sound like "Lu-mi-nes" in my head? I always think it should be "Loo-meens" or "Loo-mines."
Also, I should say that I'm not a fan of Lumines either. The only puzzle game for me is Meteos. Billions of deaths in every match. BILLIONS!
