    And then they appear when you don't even have the space to move the block to the designed place

  3. Chimental on February 25th, 2012 11:13 am

    To quote a certain god:

    LIIIIIIIINE PIIIIIIECE!

  4. Logan on February 25th, 2012 11:29 am

    He plays it on the PC with the arrow keys. He deserves no better.

    "Can I have a long one please? Why must these infernal blocks tease!"

  6. Trunks on February 25th, 2012 11:33 am

    Considering the amount of Facebook Tetris Battle I've been consuming, this cuts deep.

  7. TomQuoVadis on February 25th, 2012 11:38 am

    0 lines?

    Face it, dude…he's not coming.

  8. Discord on February 25th, 2012 11:53 am

    Except said god did not give line piece until the player had plugged the gap.

    That guy is out of line.
    Excuse me, a corner is waiting…

  11. Comire on February 25th, 2012 12:22 pm

    He was punishing him for his hubris.

  12. Comire on February 25th, 2012 12:24 pm

    Rolled up sleeves. Sh*t got srs.

  13. Skrist on February 25th, 2012 12:52 pm

    He obviously was setting up his failure the best way he could.

  14. DiamyoAlex on February 25th, 2012 12:59 pm

    And he gets paid leave? What a douche…

  15. MasterLuigi452 on February 25th, 2012 1:08 pm

    Nowdays, we have Hold box for emergency cases.
    Of course, where is the fun in that when we can't rage at the piece that we need?

  16. Skrist on February 25th, 2012 1:29 pm

    But there was no turned back hat… *Flips through book* Is this even possible?!

  17. ibbolia on February 25th, 2012 1:37 pm

    Suddenly: Circle Piece.
    "HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?"

  19. BTSnoogans on February 25th, 2012 1:57 pm

    Ugh. I was up pretty late going through this last night. I had to start the game over about 5 or 6 times because I kept getting every tetrimino except for the one I needed. The damn line piece.

  20. C__F on February 25th, 2012 1:58 pm

    …You know, that third panel does look like a paradise of sorts. Maybe they are gifts sent from above.

  21. Nick Soapdish on February 25th, 2012 1:59 pm

    I think Whitney Houston might have had a tetris addiction. I heard she couldn't stop doing lines.

  22. BTSnoogans on February 25th, 2012 2:04 pm

    I feel his pain. But I'm a masochist who obsessive-compulsively refrains from making any lines disappear until I get a tetris.

  23. GanjalfTheGreen on February 25th, 2012 2:13 pm

    It was nothing compared to the reverse square piece.

  24. SirNumel on February 25th, 2012 2:35 pm

    We may have to put you in the penalty box.

  25. SirNumel on February 25th, 2012 2:35 pm

    I'M HAVING FUN DAMMIT!

  26. SirNumel on February 25th, 2012 2:36 pm

    Never too soon.

  27. The AntiVillain on February 25th, 2012 2:46 pm
  28. Jimmy on February 25th, 2012 2:56 pm

    Level 1? Please…try panicking when you're on level 35 and there's no end in sight to the squiggly pieces.

    Can't let you use that Hold Box

  30. UndeadLex on February 25th, 2012 3:08 pm

    Why is there more shiny light in his room than in Line Block Paradise?

  31. Deep Thought on February 25th, 2012 3:12 pm

    Wow… you made all of the crack dealers on the western coast cry a little bit more…

  32. Hong_Meiling on February 25th, 2012 3:12 pm

    I hate it… Absolutely HATE it when this happens.

  33. MasterLuigi452 on February 25th, 2012 3:15 pm

    This man speaks the truth.
    Also, a bit off topic.
    How's the Minecraft server coming along?

  34. MasterLuigi452 on February 25th, 2012 3:17 pm

    The image is broken to me…
    Can you re-embed it?

  35. Trunks on February 25th, 2012 3:17 pm

    Same as the forums. In the plans, not in production. :|

  36. MasterLuigi452 on February 25th, 2012 3:25 pm

    How lazy can you guys be?
    Or is it just takes a lot of time?

  37. Skrist on February 25th, 2012 3:31 pm

    Hey if I was in charge of a site that corresponds with making people laugh, I would louse my ass off too.

  38. codemaster525 on February 25th, 2012 3:33 pm

    That was on halolz a long time ago you know…

  39. Trunks on February 25th, 2012 3:37 pm

    >How lazy can you guys be?
    Pretty lazy, but that's not really what's going on.
    >Or is it just takes a lot of time?
    Well, no. We're just busy with other stuff right now. I'd really like to get it done, but there's a lot of stuff on our plate.

  40. Zyquux on February 25th, 2012 3:38 pm

    And block you from ever returning.

  41. C__F on February 25th, 2012 3:42 pm

    I know. Guess who gets footed with the martini bills every Thursday?

  42. Skrist on February 25th, 2012 3:43 pm

    Why do we always fall in puns? If you ask me, it makes us look like squares.

  43. MasterLuigi452 on February 25th, 2012 3:43 pm

    So my best guess is LevelUp Studio related works/other important stuff comes first and THEN forum and Minecraft.
    Correct?

  44. SirNumel on February 25th, 2012 3:44 pm

    We don't fall into puns, we line up for 'em!

  45. C__F on February 25th, 2012 3:51 pm

    Well, score one for us then.

  46. Discord on February 25th, 2012 3:54 pm

    I always laugh when the god of tetris gave the player enough line pieces to remove the plug he made in his column…and the player screwed it up.

  47. The AntiVillain on February 25th, 2012 4:07 pm

    yes i know just linking the video chimental mentioned

  48. Drake148 on February 25th, 2012 4:09 pm

    You know what's missing too? The Forums.

  49. Hong_Meiling on February 25th, 2012 4:18 pm

    I dunno?.

  50. Awesomecake on February 25th, 2012 4:35 pm

    Its good that we're looking at this from the right angle

  51. Oddwan on February 25th, 2012 5:20 pm

    And not a single line piece was given that day…

  52. Funkalicous on February 25th, 2012 5:22 pm

    Pun-crackers and cheese are the meal of the day.
    How about some Tea[block]?

  53. Caelun_Niveus on February 25th, 2012 5:54 pm

    You could have, you know, linked the related Halolz post instead.

  54. Mindlessinvalid on February 25th, 2012 5:57 pm

    I have a friend who's existence is being the Avatar of Murphy's Law.

    That sounds like the kind of thing that would happen to him…

    He BSoD'd on a BSoD, tripped up stairs and then fell back down the stairs, and managed to start a grease fire in his cornflakes because of a freak accident involving a careless roommate with a cigarette and a gas leak in the cereal cupboard. And it ended up more or less looking like this:
    <img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3202/2366414413_404186e965.jpg"&gt;

  55. Mindlessinvalid on February 25th, 2012 6:00 pm

    So it's a square piece that erases a square shaped section of blocks and removes any points they were worth?

    Or is it a 4x4 hollow square? (not likely, it's called tetris because each piece is 4 segments large)

    Either one would be sufficiently rage inducing.

  56. Nicholas on February 25th, 2012 6:10 pm

    Looks like this player
    /shades
    Just got blocked.

    YEEEAHHHHHHHHHH!

  57. The AntiVillain on February 25th, 2012 6:32 pm

    we're a bunch of L-osers

  58. ibbolia on February 25th, 2012 6:44 pm

    Spontaneous cereal combustion. My life is complete.

  59. Hong_Meiling on February 25th, 2012 7:05 pm

    The stairs part sounds like me, Are you sure your friend is not Hina.?
    <img src="http://i.imgur.com/7TmXS.gif&quot; alt="" title="Hosted by imgur.com" />

    SPIN~~~!

  61. BTSnoogans on February 25th, 2012 7:32 pm

    Oh, I thought the broken image was what brought on the Every. Goddamn. Time.

  62. TheInsaneWombat on February 25th, 2012 7:42 pm

    And then, when all seemed hopeless and surely he would fail….

    Still no fucking line piece. D:<

  63. MeatyMcSausage on February 25th, 2012 8:40 pm

    You see, line piece is an individual, he doesn't care much about "fitting in."
    Thank you, thank you *bows out*

  64. Ice_Cold_Water on February 25th, 2012 9:19 pm

    Really funny, yet I have nothing to post. So I'll share my opinion of this picture, and this!

    they hatin

  66. Jimmy on February 25th, 2012 9:38 pm

    I blame school. The failed American Education System. Giver of homework and destroyer of souls.

  67. BTSnoogans on February 25th, 2012 9:53 pm

    Hey. Just DROPping in to FIT some puns into this comment chain.I don't mean to put a negative SPIN on things but I'm having a little bit of trouble PIECING a good comment together.

    And that makes four puns. How appropriate.

  68. BTSnoogans on February 25th, 2012 9:57 pm

    Well, I bet sardines would… Well if you had some sardines, you could… Um… I don't know. You're the one who's good at sardine comments.

  69. BTSnoogans on February 25th, 2012 9:59 pm

    The T-block?

  70. BTSnoogans on February 25th, 2012 10:04 pm

    Must obey master swirly-thing. Must +1 Ice_Cold_Water.
    *Regains control*
    What just hap- Oh, you are getting devious with your unrelated pictures.

  71. Alpar on February 25th, 2012 11:03 pm

    Okay, two steps to fixing the forums shouldn't really kill anyone. Not to be impatiently rude, but if you want it done fast and free of charge, you can leave it to me. Or hell, there's a billion others I know that would help me if I was in charge, who are probably more well suited for the situation. Your call?

  72. Alpar on February 25th, 2012 11:06 pm

    I don't get it.

  73. Skrist on February 25th, 2012 11:17 pm

    You're like that one friend that no one invited over, yet still insists to show up to the house to drink all the sodas and flush all the cheez-its down the toilet.

  74. Sceptilianblade on February 25th, 2012 11:50 pm

    Do it, Trunks. Pweeeease? We'll stop bothering you and Shawn about it!

  75. Valvatorez on February 26th, 2012 12:23 am

    Oh, back at the days where I was a tyrant… Those days where I could just stare at the screen and the block's would just scramble so they would leave space to them.

    But, now that I falled into hades and met the power of sardines, I've managed to beat the crap outta their lineage, so now, everytime I need them, they just come to me

  76. Jimmy on February 26th, 2012 12:26 am

    Ice_Cold_Water is Mad Mod!!!

    <img src="http://images.wikia.com/teentitans/images/7/75/Mad.jpg"&gt;

    Don't look at the Hypno-screen!!!

  77. Jimmy on February 26th, 2012 12:28 am

    Why on EARTH would you flush perfectly good Cheez-its down the toilet? There are starving kids in India that would KILL for a Cheez-it!!!

  78. xxxxxxtheundeadcat on February 26th, 2012 12:28 am

    LIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNEEE PIIIIIIEEECE!!!!!!!!!!!!

  79. PortalMan118 on February 26th, 2012 2:35 pm

    Those lines……

    THOSE FKING LINES!!!!

  80. Gary_Blue on February 26th, 2012 9:24 pm

    I never thought about it.

    Clearly line piece is red because of its lack of sunscreen and gratuitous sunbathing excursions.

  81. Ice_Cold_Water on February 26th, 2012 11:29 pm

    You know nothing of me or my ways. Go away.

  82. edd on February 27th, 2012 1:51 pm

    In my experience, this only happens during knockoff Tetris games. In official products like the NES version or GB version the pieces all appear pretty evenly.
