I.Q. Remix - Intelligent Qube sequel for PS2

Link to website... there's pics and videos to download... it's a pretty cool interface too. I can't read it, but it's not tough to navigate.

Here's some pics I swiped:

IQ is overrated. Devil Dice was so much better.

This is also true. I think was a sequel to this that never made it over.

yes. It's called XI II(pronounced "Sai II") for PS2. Although much like IQ remix, it's just a rehash - not a bad thing though. After all, how much more can you expand upon a puzzle formula without adding stupid novelties?

Devil Dice would rock so much on a portable system.

Nintendo needs to release a puzzle collection for GBA. Doctor Mario, Puyo Puyo, Tetris Attack...

An online version of this would be great. I really enjoyed the 2-player modes in IQ but I could rarely find someone who wanted to learn how to play. It wasn't the easiest game to explain to people. We need more online puzzle games. Online Puzzle Fighter would suck (because I'd have no life).

Puzzle Fighter is merely OK. A better take on the same formula is Baku Baku Animal.

I loved Devil Dice. Very addictive game. There's a sequel to the game coming out for the PS2 called Bombtastic. It's supposed to have the original Devil Dice game in it too.

It didn't get the exposure I think it deserved but it was and still is a great game. Everyone I recommended it to loved it. Simple and very addictive.

With the original being included in the new game, you'll be able to play it. I'm not sure what else they can add to the game though.

Blasphemy!! There was many a drunken battle over the controller in my college dorm room over Puzzle Fighter. I still play with my buds when we get together some times. Anyone know what the characters were saying when they talked smack to each other during the game?

..and above all of them is Puyo Puyo.. will agree that Puzzle Fighter is overrated.. take away the little Street Fighter people and the game would be unknown and uncared for.

Yeah, but did Puyo Puyo have gigantic animated animal heads chomping down the pieces? i think not!

I didn't like puzzle fighter, not because of the concept or the SF theme, but because it was a sloppy design that only slightly hinted at Puyo Puyo's potential for fun. Baku Baku plays just as tightly as Puyo Puyo and the fun graphics are just the icing on the cake.

IQ is a killer game. Calm, addictive, and fun as hell.

IQ Remix+ takes that formula and makes it obnoxious and annoying. They threw in a ton of overlay effects and really bad techno music to try and "spice it up" a bit, failing miserably. The gameplay formula is essentially the same - just now with annoying extras that I couldn't figure out how to turn off (in fact, I don't think you can.) Stick with IQ.

XI (Sai) also rules.

I.Q. Remix was actually one of the games that launched with the Japanese PS2 I believe..

Oh, and Bombastic is actually Devil Dice 3. The second installment (Xi Jumbo) was on the PSX and never came out here.

the great puzzle games rarely make it here for some reason...

Sakura Taisen Columns on the Dreamcast was addictive as hell and had a pretty decent story mode - tho not much has changed since the Genesis days.... the multiplayer was absolutely incredible.
