I wish I could find that puzzle game somewhere where you drop three circles at a time (in a pyramid shape) where each circle is a different color. When three of the same color touch, they disappear. The circles would pile up and trickle down as effected by gravity. Is that Magical Drop? I remember playing this game in my college's arcade between classes. There were big bright anime characters in the background (the cool goofy 80s kind, not the moe stuff).

I agree, he talks about ninja kid being his main but why the fuck wouldn't you play ninja kid! he has like the most game breaking move in the game! that got annoying, fast.

Was doing an RP session with some buddies, so I missed this. And yet I knew they'd do Tetris Battle Gaiden at some point.

Role Play session?

Rocket Physics session?

Rectal Pounding?

Haha, oh man. I was with Jeff on his slow and steady approach, and he got within like 4 points late... then Vinny hit another 8 billion 3 pointers. I was laughing by the end as he drained mega bombs that defied physics.

Oh man, some real bad Tetris play going on in this TNT. For being extremely serious gamers, it doesn't seem like they've played much classic Tetris. Their fundamentals are terrible.

Watching Jeff sigh and shake his head while Vinny dumps endless three point shots in the hoop is one of my favorite moments of this year.

That's why I prefer women's Tetris, better fundamentals make up for the lack of crazy showboating.

Ha you guys only played 2 games. Those were some intense Tetris duels.

Too much Tetris Battle Gaiden, not enough Tetris Attack...we need more Tetris Attack!

@President_Barackbar: Hahahaha. Touché, my friend.

Jeff, you need to buy a family sized box of granola bars (the healthy ones, not the chocolate bars with a half spoon of granola added) and keep that by your desk. If no time for proper lunch, just munch a couple of those. Feel a whole lot better. No more mass fast food runs.

This was just the best TNT.

Posted by blueinferno

Is it just me, or does Brad's smile look exactly the same as Alfonso Ribeiro's?

Posted by sungahymn

One of the best TNT's ever!

They did get progressively more ridiculous. The last 10 or so reminded me of the type of shot that always worked in Double Dribble for NES. Start at the 3 point line, float forward then back, then release the ball, inexplicably having enough momentum to shoot from 40 feet while moving backwards....and nothing but net!

Brad stop backseat Tetrising!

Posted by BlazeHedgehog

Never let Brad near Tetris Battle Gaiden ever again. Not because of how he plays it, but because he turned this in to the Tetris Battle Gaiden show. Him bringing up Mortal Kombat 2 also had me rolling my eyes a little, too, because the first one of these they ever did turned in to "Jeff and Brad play all versions of Mortal Kombat that Jeff owns and like 15 minutes of something else".
 
Once he gets a controller in his hands during something he can be competitive at he won't let go.

Also, Battle Tetris!

Edited by falling_fast

Watching people play Tetris and not playing it like you would is really terrible. Even though it's not "wrong" how they play, it just.....it just hurts

NO, DON'T PUT THAT THERE; NOOOOOOO

This is why Co-operative Tetris in the PSN Tetris game is the worst and best idea ever at the same time. It's a guaranteed friendship ender.
Posted by BenderUnit22

At least Ninja Kid is balanced in Rensa mode. They should do a scrub league tournament.

Battle Tetris is awesome but it just went on for far too long considering how varied the member stream was.

Sweet! 100 minutes of Battle Tetris! :D

I don't think you realize the pure destructive power of Wolfman's Slow + Rensa combo. While the opponent is taking 10 seconds to put down his piece, you can knock out 6 lines and pile the shit out of their side. They'll be near the top while you're on a clean board.

It is, but it was also amazing the other two times they played it. Brad kept pushing everybody through at least three "Okay, this is my last game." declarations. Unless I am watching a video dedicated exclusively to Tetris Battle Gaiden (I think the calls for a scrub league are interesting), there was a whole tub full of SNES games sitting there doing absolutely nothing because Brad wouldn't let it go.

Brad - a poor winner and loser!

Posted by Herrdoktor

This was a great TNT until Brad ruined it by touching a controller.

Vinny + Jeff playing terrible SNES games = Amazing

Brad using up all the time playing Battle Tetris far too long = Terrible

Posted by Bruce

@BlazeHedgehog:

And those annoying sounds he makes upon said declarations....the worst!

Posted by theimmortalbum

Dude how can you guys not like Tetris Battle Gaiden? This was great. Especially when they went dual Ninja.

Posted by GiantDodongo

Thanks for doing this guys, it brought back a lot of good memories, you rock! I always look forward to watching you play retro games. Much love

Posted by Brendan

Oh my god, I was in tears by the end of the NBA Live 95 game. Watching Vinny score ludicrous 3 pointers was glorious.

Posted by sofakingcool

I cant believe you assholes played tetris the entire time lol. I tip my hat to you giantbomb

Edited by Stormdragonblue

What does this need? Battle Tetris Gaiden OST of course!

Either get it here if your music player supports SPC/RNS files natively or through plugins: http://snesmusic.org/v2/profile.php?profile=set&selected=15125

Or if you lack that, for a little while I'll host that music converted into MP3 here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/74705556/Tetris%20Battle%20Gaiden%20OST.7z

(just copy/paste any of those links as for some reason I can't make them proper in-post links)

Posted by Will_M

Man, watching the tetris battle on the bullet train made the time fly! Cant believe they haven't made a newer, downloadable version yet.

Posted by Xealot42

@Will_M: Yes. Battle Tetris CE DX, make it happen!
