At a recent vintage moped gathering I had the chance to play some one on one fighting games, Street Fighter, Killer Instinct, you know the usual. Then out comes Tetris Attack. Having never played the game before I thought “Its like tetris with a new game mode”. Well guess what? Hell no its not. Playing against some one who is practiced at the game makes the experience brutal. “What about the cute characters?” you ask. The cute character are nothing but a skin to make this killer puzzle game more appealing to the masses. Next moped gathering I’m coming for you; I better get some practice in.
Finally found a copy, and with the manual. Maybe I will actually finish it this time, maybe. But we all know I won’t. I always get to the big city and get stuck. The game is good, a lot of fun, and a has a quirky humor to it; but I don’t believe it deserves all the praise it gets. And all of the ebay pricing is ridiculous, way out of wack. If anyone can explain why this is the “best game of all time” let me know in the comments below.
So I got this in the mail the other day.
Best Tetris ever!
Also complete with poster.
The strangest part of this whole thing is the description on the back of the box.
Everyone always asks me “How are you so good at Nintendo games?” and usually I tell them “You just have to hold the controller right.” but today I’m going to let out all the secrets.

Jeff Rovin punches you in the face with Nintendo game information. Make sure you have some water near by or risk choking on Nintendo game tactics.
How did I get so good at Super Mario Brothers?
Today we ordered Jimmy Johns, maybe you’ve been to the place, the’re about every two miles on any main street in Kalamazoo, subs so fast I’m supposed to freak. I didn’t do any freaking today.
I should mention that we had delivery. It was so slow I wondered if we ordered.
I like Barq’s Red Cream Soda (don’t judge) and some of the JJs around here have it on fountain, which is awesome. The one closest to my work doesn’t so Root Beer is my back up. The problem is the JJ’s closest to my work doesn’t have Root Beer either. Maybe this is hard to understand for register clerks but if I order a soda that you don’t have, do not bring me a 12 oz. can and charge me $1.50. Here are some pictures so you moron and illiterate types can understand.
ONE 12 OZ CAN DOES NOT EQUAL $1.50. Pretty easy to understand, if I wanted canned soda I know where the damn supermarket is.
This one is a bit tricky, two cans approximately equal $1.50, if the cans are very full. Ask your drug or nerdy friends for a scale to figure this one out. Bathroom scales don’t work for this.
The moral of the story is kids, if you don’t have an item, just tell the customer so they don’t have to blog about it.
I wanted to make a print of the Swanson Pyramid of Greatness but alas the internet could not supply me with a high enough resolution image. SO… I remade it. And now I’m going to share it and bask in its greatness. Ai CS5 linked below.
