Puyo Puyo Tetris rotates, rotates, rotates, then drops on April 25

Puyo Puyo Tetris is a name that doesn't fuck around. This is a game that is Puyo Puyo and it's also Tetris, but sometimes it is both at the same time. That's cold-blooded efficiency, the kind you'd expect from something that is a...   read
