Tetris Effect is available now for PlayStation 4, and it’s an excellent game. Tetris is already wonderful and has been for decades, and Tetris Effect builds on that foundation with a few gameplay tweaks and an emphasis on incredible audio and visuals. But how would a Tetris master feel about this new take on an all-time classic? I don’t know! I’m awful.

Neubauer seems to love the game — although he has yet to declare that he’s going pro in it. So, I think I still have a chance to win the Tetris Effect championship … that I’m holding in my garage and not inviting anyone else to.
