Tetris 99

Who's playing? I just started playing a week or two ago. This is the first time I'm playing (at any length) a modern Tetris. I've only really played classic Tetris until now, but I was at least familiar with the new play style. I'm starting to get use to it.

I'm still very inconsistent with what place I get. I can break 50 half the time. A few times I've gotten to the last 10, and my best place so far is 4th (with 13 K.O.) but I've yet to get 1st. It's funny though, I'll get a place below 10th but then the next several rounds I can't get out of the 80's.

The so-called "Big Block DLC" is out now. I think it was a mistake calling it DLC. The base game is free, they should have just called it the paid version. But whatever, Nintendo is prone to making bad names for things. Anyway, for those that haven't heard, the DLC gets you a CPU 99 mode and a marathon mode, as well more content that is said to release later in the year.

There's also an event this weekend that if you can rack up 100 points you can unlock a GB style skin.

I can wait to check out the DLC, big fan of 99. Got a handful of wins and stopped playing so I gotta get back to it.

The picture I posted above that shows points awarded is outdated I guess. You get 1 point even in 99th place, so anyone can get the free skin.

Just a heads up to everyone, there's another event taking place right now. This time it is Splatoon themed. And like last time, if you rack up 100 points you get awarded a new skin.

yup. The GB one is amazing as well. I love this game so hard. Bought all the DLC. Beat the marathon mode on the highest level on my first try. Took me 47 mins to play that round!
