Good time to bring up that Tetris Effect is bloody magnificent. Feels like the game Tetsuya Mizuguchi has always wanted to make but now has the licence to do it. I love that he’s spent his career just making these idiosyncratic, trance-like games - and this is a further refinement of it, just with one of the most famous video games of them all added to the mix.

Seems like ages since you've posted here!

Regards: Tetris Effect, I tried the demo last weekend, it was very nice indeed.
Might wait for a physical release though.

I’m always here, lurking, biding my time...

Apparently the Tetris Effect physical release is up in the air for the UK / Ireland, so importing would be the best option (according to one of the game’s producers).

I reckon I’ll end up double dipping if it’s released for Rift at some point :/

Haven't watched all of it, was watching it in bed and falling asleep last night.

He goes through the vast majority of Tetris games so it is detailed but maybe a bit repetitive too, a bit of an overload of Tetris.

They only do home delivery from America. I was going to use the other company to try and get all the games I get bundled into one parcel.

Not sure what the best option is though. I want to get my NTSC SNES and PS1 games though

I'll give Tetris Effect a go, loved everything Mizuguchi has done lately.

My only issue with it is that it's tetris, while I think it's a great game there's better puzzle games like puyo puyo and panel de pon.

Still, I was hoping teris/puyo puyo would have an option to play the stand alone games so this should scratch that itch. Wish it was on the Switch but I'd say it will come to switch and PC as Sony aren't funding or publishing the game. Going to hold out until it's on them as I never turn on the PS4.

I've used them twice. I've recently learned that they're moving their Nevada warehouse to another state so will no longer have 0% sales tax.

Other than that no issues. They send you weights and dimensions and photos of the shipping box. On request for a fee they'll open them up, take more photos etc. From what I can tell their customs declarations are grand too. AddressPal US have a serious issues with customs being completely wrong and over valued items even when providing invoices resulting in higher fees when landed.

I had a handbag and Ugg boots shipped over for herself, I believe it was 2kg each package. Around €40ish shipped. I think it was a fair price for a large box. But of course, vat and customs on top of all that gets expensive. Very expensive.

Shame it's so expensive to import from the US.

Outside of that can't fault the service. It's one of the cheaper, if not the cheapest, forwarding service. As you're looking to consolidate packages that rules out AddressPal.
