enik: But does he have the skills to move out of mom's basement?

Submitted Links Approved: None

Looks like we should be asking you the same question.


I'd think that no approved links means he's not on Fark all the time - and thus has a better chance at not being in Mom's basement.

Bullshiat.  The blocks were moving faster than the human eye can even follow, and it would require prescience to know the upcoming blocks and where to put them with no thought.
Not to mention, no Tetris I've played moves that fast.

If you look on the right side of the screen, you'll see that the player gets a preview of the next 5 or 6 blocks on the right, rathern than the usual one.


Yeah, this is the 'hard drop' version, there are a tremendous amount of variations that were never in the NES/SNES versions. I believe this is an arcade only title.

drewsclues: error 303: impaler: And are we sure this wasn't done like that Mario Bros. rom hack?

My first thought as well.


Here's a related video, skip ahead a couple minutes.

Thanks. Now that I've actually watched it and see you know which blocks are coming next, I think I believe it's real. And you know, considering what I've seen Starcraft players do during their intial build phase, maybe it can be done even faster...

Bareefer Obonghit: I didn't understand why they weren't putting anything into the last column on the board then I realized the flashes I was seeing were straight lines being dropped in & disappearing while I was blinking. Holy shiat.

Also, just because, here's a great - legitimate - rap song using the Tetris theme song in the background by Extended F@mm. It gets progressively faster and is just glorious. Called Line Drop.


How about a Soviet history lesson to the tune of Tetris?

abhorrent1: People still play Tetris?


yes, people will always "still play Tetris"

That's like asking "People still play Chess?"
