Hoping to see some Lumines action online as well.
I completely forgot that it was coming out tomorrow. So hyped for this one.

Some good races tonight guys, thanks. I haven't played Mario in months and just realised I haven't even won the 150cc by getting gold all the way through!

@wasilewski yes it was great fun! Currently preparing a little recap that I will post both here and discord. Are you on the latter? Could not find you in our server

Finally I get my fair share of gaming.
Praise the Switch!

Sooooo. We can comfortably say that last night was yet again, a successful gaming evening. Great to see so many participants, so thanks to
@SonOfVon @mauhlin12 @Zkibu @iamcardboard @meppi64 and his pink yoshi @NaviAndMii @RetroGamerAndrew @Kodos @Andy @hybridseed @Eagle9 @wasilewski

The competition was indeed intense, with successive winners such as @Zkibu @mauhlin12 @iamcardboard so well done to our winners!

Here are some clips to highlight some of the action

@Fafounet I could never do any of this video capture wizardry. Not on Twitter for a start, lol! This forum and our Discord are more than enough to occupy my aging grey matter 😂

Thanks everyone for the games. I had a bit of luck on my side. Never played before the battle modes and some of them were hilarious. Shine Thief and the Police thing are absolutely crazy fun games.

@Fafounet My guerrilla tactics would have worked, if I had the skill to actually pull them off successfully!

Also, seriously people. Buy Lumines!
It's a must have, especially on a handheld.
It kept me up till 4AM last night and I know the games inside out from back on PSP.
If it was an exclusive, it would be a system seller.

@meppi64 how different is it from the vita version? I used to own the latter and enjoyed it, but wondering if it is worth getting again on the switch

@Fafounet It's a direct port from the PSP version as far as I can tell. With a couple more bells and whistles. Perhaps a couple more skins, but I'm not sure right now.

I have to say that I have all versions of Lumines that came out as far as I know and the Vita version was my least favourite.
I need to go back and see exactly why, but it didn't click with me like the older ones. It was still good, mind.
So I'm glad they went back to the original.

Oh and be sure to try it in portable mode, because there is where it really shines.
Headphones on and the HD rumble pulsing along with the music.
I tried disconnecting the Joycons yesterday in bed and putting the system on my lap, playing with my hands laying besides me like I love to play Pinball in bed.
It's absolute perfection to play like that.

@meppi64 ok thanks. Will give it a go then! Sounds like right down my alley. Loved some of the music on the previous iterations.

@Fafounet It's a really strange beast, just like many of Mizuguchi's games, when you really get into it, it seems to play itself while you float away into a dreamlike state. Or how they officially call it, the flow-state.
Really odd.
Lumines, Rez, Meteos and even Sega Rally 1995 has this.
So if it doesn't immediately clicks, don't dispair. Just play on, get into the rhythm of the game, let the music take over as well as the vibrations and slip away till you start forgetting you're playing a game.
Before you know it, it'll be 2 or 3 hours later.

@meppi64 you're selling it very well. Definitely should consider a career in video games marketing (if that is not already the case!)

@Fafounet Hehe, I'm just passionate about the things I love.
And especially when it comes to some of the things that aren't really mainstream and thus get overlooked most of the time, despite them being on par, and at many times superior to the big budget titles that sell missions.

Not sure if a job like that would really fit me though.
I might end up going:
"You know this game we're about to put out? Yeah, well it's not terrible, but you're so much better of buying this slammer title from our competitor, which is far superior in just about every way. Now let you go into a detailed explanation why their game is so much better!"

I don't think that would fly for long.
