Lumines 2 PSP trailer

Lumines II trailer for the PSP version (also coming to PS2). It’s the follow-up to Q Entertainment’s innovative puzzle/music game. Due for release in October 2006. Trailer here:


Gameplay description…

Gamers control squares made of four smaller block pieces that are dropped into the playing field one at a time to form same-color squares. The vertical “timeline” sweeps across the playing field from left to right and wipes the same-color squares from the playing field.

Unmatched blocks pile up, and the game ends when the pile gets to the top of the playing screen. Advance through many action-packed levels, each with its own musical theme and sound effects.

Xbox sleeping with the fishes?

Xbox Core Console USMNoticing the lack of new current generation games? You’re not alone, Dubious Quality talks about the current/next-gen boundary for Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, and the PC.

To quote: “While there are already 40 Xbox 360 titles earmarked for release in 2007, the original Xbox has exactly zero titles currently scheduled with the retail chain. What does this mean exactly? Not much on its own, as company’s could have things planned that are simply not in the system yet, but it sure does not paint a very rosy picture for the gigantic console that gave us so many fond memories.”

 Wednesday, May 31st will be the release date for the next chapter in the hitman series, Hitman:blood money. Agent 47 is even more bad ass in this installment and hopefully you downloaded the demo in the marketplace. So if you want some contract killing fun pick up hitman this week.

Also if anyone picks up the game and wants to write up a review for it, I will post it up on the site(Of course giving you full credit) as DRW krazynick did for Battlefield 2:MC.
