    So you get for "free" a game you actually get by paying for the Sub and can play while the sub lasts but you have to pay extra to play against bots in a game you stop being able to play if the subs runs out?

    YEP. Sounds right to me. Nothing wrong there at all.

    This is such a stupid comment. Not all games are DESIGNED to be played offline. Not every game is meant to cater exactly to you. You're not the center of the universe.

    They're free to charge what they want for the game, however they want. News flash, they're the ones who created it. Did you know creating games costs money? Shocking I know. I too thought games just grew on the videogame tree.
    Too bad the common sense tree is also fictional because you could really use an orchard of those.

    What do you not understand with this?:
    Games should never be forced to be played online.

    You are really overreacting...

    here idk
    You can literally Google search "tetris" and a million sites pop up where you can play for free
    including tetris.com, which is easy enough to remember that you don't need to search it

    "$10? Well, I may as well pay a bit more to get Online and Tetris!" I wonder if this is what they are hoping for.

    Does Puyo Tetris have individual single player modes for each game?

    I bought the dlc earlier today despite having not played the game. I'm trying to buy all dlc for each game I have. I've also been downloading nsp and xci versions of every game I have. I bought all games digitally, so I wanted some reassurance for when the switch eshop goes down. I didn't download this game nor the nes collection, since they require online. however, does this mean that an nsp can be played without signing in? I thought the nes collection and this game had to phone home every 7 days? is that still true at least with tetris 99?

    Oh my god what on earth have they done with the ghost blocks? I never thought I was a graphics whore but I genuinely have been playing this game less since they changed the style to the ugly mess they are now.

    Don't just repeat yourself; justify your comment. Why should games never be forced to be played online?

    The offline modes are decent enough. I'm not gonna comment on the value for money, because it doesn't pertain directly to how I obtained the dlc..

    Otherwise you have to be always-online. Some of the Ubisoft games required to be always online. And there is a certain amount of games you cannot play story mode because maybe router or ISP has trouble sometimes. Or servers are stopped.

    Yea there's no story-mode in 99, though, is there? It's a free multiplayer Tetris battle for people who subscribe to Switch online...
