The Introduction Thread

Thread in 'Discussion' started by Ai, 30 May 2008.

  1. Hello,

    I started playing tetris on the gameboy.
    I play tetris ds, tetris party and tetris party deluxe.
    I like to play other puzzle games such as dr mario.
    I found this site by googling about tetris and came across this site.
  2. Oh hey, I've seen that video... SAL is known around the TGM community for playing BIG mode and wrecking at it. I don't quite understand Hexion's mechanics though... I get the basic premise, but it seems like you can move pieces up, which kind of makes no sense...?
  3. Hello to the TetrisConcept community!

    i'm probably among the older guys on the forum (1980), and even though i don't play as much video games in general as i used to when i was a teenager, i'm still hooked on Tetris.

    I discovered it in 1990 on the original Gameboy (although i have already seen the game on computers, but was never attracted to) that i borrowed from a friend.

    I play NDS_TGM (even though the DS dpad is a pain when it comes to lock the pieces or to tap/double tap, etc.) and Heboris + Texmaster on my PC with a Hori stick.

    I don't play many other games at the moment (and probably never will again, too much work :( ), but i enjoy Shmups and even some other puzzle games. Reading this thread, i realized not many people praised the original Meteos on NDS, but i think it's an incredible game that i enjoyed and got me hooked many many hours (my poor wrists do still remember)!
    The other puzzle games, on the NDS too, that i enjoy is incredibly simple but highly addictive: Zoo Keeper! Forget the flash and iPhone version, this game reveals its true nature on the Nintendo handheld... My only regret is that i never could unlock the highest difficulty level (you have to beat all the hiscores in every mode, and one of them is just impossible), so i can't get the highest scores but hey...

    Welcome alpha and Bobby Stackwell. I still enjoy playing Meteos and Dr. Mario. I too wish I had more time for gaming. Have a great stay.

    I've seen the video before as well and found some info about the game's origin a while ago. There you can play the original game called Hextris.
  5. Hello guys,

    since I haven't introduced myself yet, I thought I might as well do it right now. ^^

    1. A friend of mine once said: "Hey, let's play Tetris!" So I grabbed a random Tetris-version from the internet and started to play. I sucked and my buddy teased me that I could not get better than that anyways. >:(
    So I started to play NES Tetris all the time to surprise him next time and searched the internet for all the information about Tetris I could possibly get. A while later I found out about Texmaster and tetrisconcept through google. So yeah, I started just to be better, but got addicted. :D
    I've been around reading on this forum and hanging out in #tetrisconcept and #arika since December 2009. I'm not a great player, but my progress so far is pretty decent. ;)

    2. I'm playing TGM and TAP on Mame, Texmaster, Blockbox, Nullpo netplay and rarely TOJ and Tetris Friends. That should be about it. :p When I started I played several hours a day and I still spend some time almost every day to improve.

    3. I've been playing a lot of games, but Tetris is probably the one I invested the most time in by now.

    4. Not really, I played a few rounds of Jewlery Master, Tetris Attack and Dr. Mario, but didn't bother to get into it yet.

    5. Google IIRC, see above :D

    This post got a bit longer, but at least now I officially introduced myself. B)

  6. Love the part where Konami call up and ask to license the game!
  7. New forum fucktard reporting :x

    Yep, I'm DAS. I'm on HD, and I perused these forums as a guest for a while, decided to make the jump to an account. Yes I fuckin suck at tetris but that ain't the point.

    (Hell yes no censor, I like it here)

    Another French player. Welcome!

    Have you been playing since they aired the program last year? How good are you and did you play Tetris before? Have a nice stay and don't hesitate to post in the competition forum. ^^
  12. Amnesia

    Amnesia Piece of Cake

    and Amnesia !! o_O

    SHIRASE is not for god players, actually after a several level of speed skill, SHIRASE looks easier than DEATH in term of consistency.
    Most of player abandon in a first step because they are shoked by the speed but it is not that fast once you can have a look on the 3 previews.
  13. Bienvenue !

    Shirase may look harder / faster / more wtf than Death, and certainly is at some level, but for the first sections (I'd say before 300) it is actually easier and more permissive than Death.
  14. hi, i've been around for a while but i've never made an introduction post.
    i'm 19 & live in toronto and waterloo. started playing multiplayer tetris a year and a half ago; i remember i was playing DOTA with some friends and i was frustrated with losing and i told them i would own them if they found an online tetris game so we googled 1 on 1 tetris and found cultris. then moved on to blockbox & toj later. started playing texmaster a year ago & mainly play shirase mode... don't really get how to place pieces in tgm2. played 'shittie' calculator, cellphone, nblox versions of tetris on and off since i was 9.
    my records are shirase 712, 40lines 27.xxs, survivor 4:30...
    i like pavement
  15. Seems odd to make an introductory post at this point in time, but why not.

    1. Why did you start playing Tetris? Can you also please specify how long you have been playing and if you consider yourself a great player? ^^

    I guess the "Why?"-question would sadly have to be answered with this: It looked amazing in a video. It took a while after that to really get what the game was about at its core, but that first impression sure helped me stick with it and helped me have a visual goal of what wanted to be able to do. Superficial yeah, but like any passion (maybe obsession is more like it) it is later replaced with a great appreciation of what is underneath. Whatever got me to the current situation (at least as far as TGM) I am grateful for.

    I discovered TGM christmas 2007 I think, and started playing short after that, in january, when I was able to find the games and required software paraphernalia thanks to Kitaru.

    As far as great player goes, no, not really. I dont think my consistency is that of someone who is truly great. Good sure, but great will have to be reserved for other people.

    2. What Tetris games do you play and how much do you play?

    Almost exclusively TAP and Ti-modes on simulators. Every once in a while I try TGM1 only to realize how bad I am at it. I prefer to play against myself and only against others passively so I have not really payed any attention to multiplayer Tetris.

    I might on a good calm day play an hour and a half added up maybe, if I dont have other things going on. I might have days like that 2-4 days per week. It really depends, it can be closer to 20 minutes alot of days, and I will have go on binges other days, so. I dont feel confident saying for sure. It used to be more though, some time ago.

    3. What other games besides Tetris (if any ^^) keep you busy?

    I used to play a lot of beatmania IIDX, and later mostly BMS files on Lunatic Rave 2. I dont right now though, I dont feel like I can break the ★20-21 barrier without putting an unnatural strain on my hands and wrists. Maybe I will get back into it in a while, who knows.

    4. Any other block/puzzle games you enjoy?

    I did play this arcade game called 'Gyakuten!! Puzzle Bancho' a little some years ago on MAME after getting it from a friend, but that was a long time before I got into TGM. What I recall though it was pretty fun.

    I also played Blocksum for a while during my early Tetris playing. Fun stuff, atleast at first.

    5. How did you find out about tetrisconcept?

    Kitaru sort of semi-invited me after I started posting records in a thread he had made on a different site I guess, haha. Thanks for that.

    Sorry for any ridiculously extended sentences, I cant seem to stop myself from writing english that way.

    Thats it for me.

    It's never too late to introduce yourself. You and briannn are great Tetris players in the games and modes you play!

    The puzzle games you mentioned look interesting batfly, especially the arcade game. How bad are you at TGM1 batfly? ^^
  17. Thanks! And yeah, it would be cool to see what the players here could achieve in it (actually both Blocksum and Gyakuten, the former enters a phase of fairly boring patters after about 16 levels though). I remember something about reaching around level 40 in Gyakuten.

    And TGM1 haha, well, bad might be a bad word by itself, but in comparison with my TA Death record i think it has to be looked at that way. I think I would have a tough time breaking rank 15 on this board to be honest. After all, I'm no Kevin haha. Maybe with some intense practice though.
  18. Hi guys, long time no see. I know some of us have had our differences in the past but we're all fans of Tetris, let's be friends!

    1. Why did you start playing Tetris? Can you also please specify how long you have been playing.

    I started playing because my highschool friends asked me to. They eventually stopped, I didn't. I've been playing on and off for around 9 years and when you've been playing for this long you better be good!

    2. What Tetris games do you play and how much do you play?

    I play a lot of the guideline games: Splash, TDS, TOJ, TF, TPD, as well as Blockbox and NullpoMino.

    3. What other games besides Tetris (if any ) keep you busy?

    Starcraft 2, Left4Dead 2, Battlefield Bad Company 2, and Guildwars 2 when it comes out.

    4. Any other block/puzzle games you enjoy?

    I suck at them but Super Puzzle Fighter and Dr. Mario are fun.

    5. How did you find out about tetrisconcept?

    I used to be on the old! ah the memories.
  19. Sup Blink, haven't talked to ya in a while. You any good at SC2? lol :D!
