Welcome to the board! These guys are talking about an outside competition they've joined, where teams compete to put up Gamerscore every week and low-scoring teams get eliminated. None of that stuff applies to you/the rest of us.

The actual leaderboard on TA gets changed every week (total TA, total gamerscore, % complete, whatever) because I couldn't really decide what metric was best when I first set it up, so I swap it up weekly for the sake of variety. And this way Quintin gets to be #1 once a month!

Speaking of which, leaderboard is set to TA ratio this week.

Thanks for the information. If we start any new challenges around here keep me in mind. I've done a few before using the 360Voice site to track them.

Nicely done m0nks. It works out real nice having you out there in your ker-azy time zone.

Finally an advantage to being stuck down here at the arse end of the world!

I so thought Q-Stone would have been the first nomination...

Minarchist is the new Q-Stone?

Dandies, don't look now, but we're currently in 41st position!

Spoiler:

That's a lazy 73 positions ahead of the elimination cutoff!

With that current 4.0 bonus up for grabs I'm expecting to see some big numbers hit by the end of the week. Either that, or people will be hitting the Kinect back catalogue to see what can be obtained whilst still avoiding cut off. We have a 600+ nuke that can still be played if we need it, but the week is young, and I am only 2,000 'fans' away from popping this bad boy in Kinect Joyride.

Hope you went somewhere nice/did doughnuts in a parking lot until you hit the magic number.

I was driving to work. Lotta angry commuters piling up behind me when I stopped to take the picture.

It's just Quinton being a jerk, as usual.

Hey, it was IMPORTANT.

Heads up for the Dandies....

I doubt I'm going to be able to put many more points up for this week, although we currently have a nice buffer as it is. I'm off for a snowboarding trip tomorrow and won't be home until the next round.

And on that note, I might be scoring light next week too - my girlfriend is coming into town for a long weekend, and we're headed up to the San Juan islands for a romantic getaway.

I might chip in some points from mobile gaming, but it won't be a whole lot.

We are sitting pretty, but i should also say that I will not be able to put many points on this weekend. Have a bunch of crazy Jersey shore relatives coming in this weekend so I will have to get drunk and say 'yous guys' a lot.

Doesn't add up!?!?

On a serious note, I've got us covered with FO:3 if it gets dire, and I may still pop that 400+ pointstravaganza cheev in joyride, or (if I'm smart), I can grind out some easy cheevs in the PC SWTCW game I have.

Oh, if only I got achievements for that, you boys could take the week off.

Fixed for falsely humble bragging rights enjoy!

I should be able to put some points up tonight after my Fear 2 session. Maybe even finish up Happy Wars.

Hey Dandies. We've got a 400 point buffer. If no-one can get online, I'll drop another 400-500 FOs this evening. I think the Kinect Joyride points might be better served as a starting point for next week, rather than over populate the score if we don't need to. Anyone planning gaming in the next 15 hours (other than Jonman, keep those fluids up)? I'll check back in 6, once my nightshift is over and make a call then

As of 'now', we are 20 places and 1K clear of elimination, I'll check in again around 7am local time, which will be an hour before elimination cutoffs, just to be safe in terms of updates going across from TA to GTASC.net.

If you guys do play 'today', enjoy it!

I'll be on at some point today. No clue what I'll put up points-wise though.

Leaderboard set to completion % this week.

I was fully planning on playing some Kinect games this weekend. Then the disc drive on my 360 (Elite) broke. There isn't a disc in there, but when you push the button, it acts like it tries to open, but catches on something. The trick with the paper clip from the support site didn't work.

We just bought a second xbox (Slim) for the bedroom, and in theory they will announce the next system at E3, so we decided it wasn't worth the $100 to send it in. So I'm going to open it up and see if I can figure out the issue. However, we wanted to transfer all of our saves to the cloud in case I brick the machine, but that meant upgrading my fiances account to gold. That process should be smooth, but Microsoft seems to think that the account was hacked. We can't access (don't even recognize) the backup email they want to use to send a reactivation code to. Having the site send a text message looked like it worked, but that just let us reset the password; the account was still locked. She filled out an info form and now we are waiting for MS to determine if she is really herself.

Damn, that sucks.

Yeah, pretty much. The living room 360 still plays arcade games just fine, and the slim in the bedroom works for disc games. It's not too much of a pain to swap them if we want to play kinect games, but we don't want to leave the new one in the living room because frankly we don't want our (young/immature/what-the-hell-were-we-thinking) roommates using it. It's our shiny new toy, dammit.

On the plus side, once we have this sorted out, I'll have a piece of machinery to fiddle with. So that's fun. Not as fun as playing games on the thing, but you know: silver linings.

Room-mate just got Dance Central 3, and is currently popping cheevs. BLOOP-BLOOP!
