Every Extend Extra (E3) is a mix between Lumines and Rez, both titles developed by mastermind Tetsuya Mizuguchi. Gameplay involves the player blowing himself up in order to try and cause a huge combo. Blowing oneself up takes away from your overall stock, but hopefully the combo is big enough to earn another "life" or two, or "extend" gameplay. There is also a time limit, so one can't just sit idle and avoid wasting stock. There are also power-ups called "quickens," that speed the player up.

E3 isn't too far from its independent roots. The main difference from the original is the music variable. Much like Lumines, E3 progresses via "skins," each one with different backgrounds, speeds, music and sound effects. In addition to that, E3 also adds different explosion types, which can link chains in different ways than in Every Extend. Lastly, E3 adds a "charge" feature. By holding down the explosion button, the bomb is charged. The longer the button is held, the bigger the blast radius.


After Rez, Lumines and Meteos, Every Extend Extra is the latest music game hit developed by Tetsuya Mizuguchi and this time published by Bandai for PSP™. Available now at US$ 48.90 only.



Bomberman: Act Zero reinvents the series new, switching the super-deformed bomb dropper with supersonic, cybernetic warriors and by intoducing new gameplay modes (including a "First Person Bomber" mode set up somewhat like an FPS Deathmatch bout). The game features a new storyling and dark themes, set in a post-apocalyptic world where cyborgs are pitted against cyborgs in a duel to the death. Your "Bomberman" is equipped with armored battle suits and you have to fight for survival through the single player game's 99 levels or go head-to-head online with up to eight players in multiplayer matches.


Pushed back several times, Bomberman: Act Zero for Xbox360™ is finally in stock today, available at a low budget price tag of US$ 34.90 only.
