Lumines Live hits tomorrow [update 1]

A day with no Live. Thousands were faced with a difficult proposition. Do nothing ,or go outside. Fear not, pasty gamers, Microsoft understands what you have gone through. As a reward, you can download Lumines Live tomorrow! It's finally here! Starting tomorrow at 8:00 GMT (1:00 AM PDT), it's yours for the downloadin'. Remember that constant whining sound reverberating across the internet? That was all the fanboys (us included) just waiting for Lumines to finally drop. You should all be grateful that the constant droning will finally cease. Just in time for the new whining to begin: "1200 points! Whaaaaa!" And that's before we get into the soon-to-be-controversial 600 point "Advance Pack." Oy.

But seriously, it's Lumines. Hooray, Lumines!

Update: Major Nelson has let the world know that the "Advance Pack" is not available yet. It will come out later, presumably when everyone's addiction will force them to purchase it.

1. And aragorn just $!at himself.

Seriously though... I am so happy. took them long enough, but this game is higher on my list than Gears of War, F.E.A.R.... pretty much everything except Bioshock.

2. I am excited, however, I'm very disappointed in the pricing... and forget about the advance pack... 600 pts to actually get the FULL game after I pay for that.... seems a bit much to me... I'd be OK with 1200 for it... 'cause I know I'm probably not gonna find the PSP version for less than 15 bucks, but letting them charge so much extra for the additional content that WILL interfere w/ gameplay seems a bit excessive to me.

3. WOOHOO! Finally!

4. Thank God. I hate only having a portable to play Lumines on. The only time I seem to play is on a plane. I played all the way to level 75 in one swipe this morning until we had to land - I tried to get them to keep it in the air so I could keep on playing but no dice. Hopefully the battery keeps me "paused" on level 75 until my next trip.

God, I love Lumines...

6. If it's 1:00 AM PDT, it's not 10:00 GMT.

Oops. Fixed.

8. Well, think about the fact that PSP owners have to pay $30-40 for the same exact game so were getting a better deal. This is the first modern Live Arcade game that has a retail version on another console so its easy to expect its price to be high. Plus, the content packs are also possibility their "workaround" for the 50MB Live Arcade limit.

12. I wasn't able to get it in time. Xbox Live broke. =(

13. The PSP version of Lumines has been around $20 or less for quite a while. And I think I prefer playing puzzle games on portable systems. Maybe it's just me.

14. So no advance = no madonna/videoclips?

16. Im really tired of that same old stereotype. The "pasty" gamer who never goes outside. Can we please get over that? This isn't the early nineties anymore. Gaming has expanded its demographic in the past decade to include a wide range of participants with a variety of different skin tones, and athletic backgrounds. For the record, I am not "pasty", I love the outdoors, and I am highly athletic. Even so, I am a hardcore gamer. I know Richard is just joking around, but its the same joke everytime. Is it really that funny? Please, can we all grow up, and realize that gaming is become America's pastime, not just a hobbie for basement dwelling nerds.

17. No it's still just for basement dwelling nerds just admit your one of us stop trying to fool yourself any longer.
