Tenlo's XBLA Bragging Contest

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

First topic message reminder :


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!

Great work GOTD, although I hate to say my stats are wrong (2690 is my actual score), not that Im bothered, but for some reason my stats page does not show all of my completions.

Maybe I was off line for some cheevies?

Maybe. Like I said earlier in the thread, offline achievements are tough to include because there's no date stamp to say when you unlocked it. Obviously this method only picks up achievements unlocked when connected to live in April.

You can't be expected to count gamerscore recieved offline thats a whole new can of worms. How would you know they were gotten this month as apposed to five years ago?
This is why I never bothered playing the competition two Saturdays ago as live was down all night.

Well done everyone. Thanks Graham!

Can't believe I have scored reasonably well. I've had practically a full week of non scoring and then when I did play, I was concentrating on completions rather than points!

Well done yooz guys at the top!! It's looking like a good heated battle for the last week. Hopefully all the Sega whorers are out of the way!

I totally agree, it was my own stupid fault as I didn't realise this.

I assumed that if TA logged that I completed the games on my home page, which it did, It would also do so in my stats, which it didn't lol

Nevermind, onwards and upwards!

You guys are doing a great job in my absence. Good to see things are getting sorted too. I will have to keep an eye on this though, I may not be too into gaming at the mo, but there is no way Kent is overtaking me!
