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?

Reciting Poetry?

Rensa Play.

The correct answer was "Ramen Plundering". I had thought that was obvious.

So that's basically a precursor to Regulatory Proteins then. Gotta get me some RP, man!

It's Required Practice, in fact, to have your Regulatory Proteins during your Role Play so you don't take a Rectal Pounding as you're Reciting Poetry on Rocket Physics during a Rensa Play.

MAKE IT STOP, JIMMY! MAKE! IT! STOP!

I love you guys.

playing any game with Brad seems like a bad time.

I think that's harsh. Yeah he's a little over-competitive (see: the final Lantern Run), but that can create some amusing moments (his ahhhhhhHHHHHHH!!! during the Rensa game was awesome).

However, I was surprised Vinny didn't punch him or something for all of his obtrusive backseat tetrising - telling him when to use magic, and where to put the pieces.

But it's all good. Brad being Brad is part of what makes this site what it is.

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)

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

@BlazeHedgehog:

tetris battle is amazing

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 irritates the piss out of me when he plays battle tetris, he turns into a complete cocky asshole. They should boot up some mile high club next week so bad Brad can get a taste of reality.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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!

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.
