I have a confession, my geeky compadres. I know I have told you all before that I am not much of a gamer. Well, I am here to tell you today that is not…entirely true. In fact, I have had a problem with one game in particular. A game that has kept me up at night dreaming of rotating blocks with interchanging skins and upbeat, grating music playing over and over again but only reaching ears who are impervious to its annoying charm.
Lumines is the one puzzle game that has ever held my interest, and it has had ahold of my heart for four years now. It started on the PSP and has made a spot in my XBox games list. It is the only game that kept me up late at nights. I was playing it when three buildings exploded on main street of Bozeman and made my house shake like it had been hit by a truck. I remember Lumines whenever someone speaks of that morning. I gave myself trigger thumb with that game. My high score was around 2 million points.
