Without a doubt, one of my all-time favorite games is Lumines. I havenít been gaming much on my laptop recently (because itís shit), but I did some digging last week and found I had Lumines on it. And Iíve played it for about 5 hours each day the past week. Iím not sure if itís because of the music, the visuals, or the new puzzle type they developed, but I can safely say that Lumines is the greatest puzzle game ever created.
Tetris can suck it.
Alright, now with that flamebait out of the way, letís move on to the recaps! Today, weíve got unstopablejuggernaut making me feel like Iím playing Left 4 Dead with him, 2 different views on the new Bionic Commando game, and a few new members joining our ranks.
