Tenlo's XBLA Bragging Contest

Post  Tenlo on Thu Mar 28, 2013 9:56 pm


With the recent announcement of next month's Xbox Live Rewards event (check Graham's post here) I thought what the hell let's have an impromptu contest for all those XBLA titles cluttering up our hard drives.

So throughout April I challenge you all to complete as many XBLA achievements as you can on as many different games as possible! Who will win out, who will falter first, who has some right bizarre stuff backed up in their backlog? All will be revealed over the month.

At the moment all the prizes we have are pure bragging rights, but I will try and scavenge some codes and gifts from companies over the month, but no guarantees! As it's all fun there will be several categories to win in. Obvious categories will be most GS and most achievements earned, but I will also be announcing more random categories such as least GS and achievements earned, most and least amount of games you've earned achievements in as well as most completed games. Plus any more bizarre ones that pop into my head.

All in all it's going to be a good chuckle and gives us all an excuse to tackle some of those games lurking in our backlogs! Plus with the variety of categories I can think of, I can imagine everyone has a chance of winning something (thought it may take me a couple of days to write up the final victor's posts).

To enter all you have to do is join the leaderboard here (if the link doesn't work just follow the leaderboard on my TA page. If you're not on TA or just want to make my life a living nightmare, then just PM me your gamertag and I'll shift through your game list and do it manually (and prepare for some cursing and blaspheming of your name - no Xmas cards for you!!!). I'll take note of everyone's scores around midnight 31st March and keep tabs from there. If you join late don't worry I'll just keep tabs from when you do start.

So apologies for the suddenness of the comp but it's a moment of inspiration, hence the slapdash logo and lack of organisation, but I'm sure it'll come together. So let's clear that XBLA backlog together and earn some bragging rights and possible forum badges (just came to me that idea - I told you this was in the process of being made!) plus don't forget to sign up to Xbox rewards as you may as well get some free stuff from them too!

LOVE IT.

I've been pushing my retail completions of late, but a couple of weeks of XBLA will be most welcome.

Awesome news, we haven't had a big forum contest bit of fun for ages, so this should be good. And extra big thanks to both Kent and Tree for volunteering possible prizes. Hopefully we'll have plenty on offer and I'll get on organising some forum badges for winners too, come on who doesn't like forum badges!

As the big man says

Nice one fella, I rarely play arcades and the ones I do I can't get more cheevs on because I'm crap, so probably won't join but I'd be happy to do the badges if you want for winners etc Smile

This will motivate me to play the heaps & heaps of Arcade games I have on my machine ... 100 + by my reckoning, purchased in the weekly sales with XBL points purchased at a stupidly cheap price when Zavvi went under.

Will try to get to do as many as possible, should be good for a laugh.

If anyone fancies some multiplayer at any Arcade games with the aim of multiplayer cheevs, add me as there's a chance I'll have the game you're playing.

Awesome news, I'll PM Everton, Tree and KEnt on Tuesday after the chaotic easter weekend. I also have Walking Dead sitting in the wings for this. Don't forget if you want a couple of free XBLA titles then this offer may still be accessible.
