Gamer League!

Not quite sure how I've managed to let the days fly by since my last update (it's been about 3 weeks!) but I'm here now to mention the Gamer League which started last Friday.

There is me, tractakid, Dalimbak, Mr F5 TORNADO, BemusedBox and adiash73 all competing to be the first gamer to get the full 1000 gamerscore in 7 games. It's important to state that none of us had played any of the games prior to Friday (apart from BemusedBox and Mr F5 TORNADO being 2 slight exceptions) therefore this competition is as fair as possible. The seven games are as follows.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
MX vs ATV Untamed
Orange Box
Rise of the Argonauts
World Championship Snooker 2009

Quite a variety there in game type as each player picked one game to add to the list and we all suggested we boosted Orange Box together. A couple of games on there will be hard and take a long time therefore I don't expect anybody to be hitting the finishing line for months yet. I've gone ahead and finished Cloudy already (although that is easy and quick) and adiash73 is closing in on finishing Stoked. This is good and all but everyone is aware that this is just the beginning of what will surely be a long gruelling task.

So far I have managed to have daily totals being displayed on a website for everybody to see. tractakid told me about WetPaint as a Wiki site and it's great. I haven't put too much content on but it's enough to make it worth a little look at. If you're interested then here's the link - (be sure to navigate via the links on the navigation bar to the left of the page).

In other news I have lots of new games to my collection. My girlfriend got me Avatar (2009 movie) and Batman Arkum Asylum for my birthday (both of which I haven't touched yet :() and I've gone and got Spongebob for an easy 1000. Skate 3 and Alan Wake arrived on Saturday as well as Lips which I am borrowing from my friend rover08. As always there's too many games on my mind and not enough time to play them all, especially not now considering I've started this Gamer League!
