You've accepted mine. Nice job with Pac Man, by the way. Quite a score.

Hey, I'll bite. Gamertag's "Thoreau Bot".

I do the whole Halo/Gears of War/Crackdown thing, but actually spend more time on the Arcade titles. If you're a force in Pac-Man CE and/or Lumines, step on up.

I'm addicted to Pac Man. in challenge mode 1, I can eat 40 ghosts in a row without a break. thats 100,000+ points in the first minute. after that its just trying to even up the map so you can get 4-6 power pellets at a time to maximize your ghost clearing.

I've only gotten all the achievement points on 3 games and 2 of them are Pac-Man.

Oh, it's definitely on then.

I've got all the achievements myself and I agree -- successful chaining of the power pellets is the implicit goal of the game, no doubt.

I wasn't able to get much XBL time in this weekend, but I'm adding you soon so we can battle it out on the leaderboards.

challenge accepted. I've got 292,000 on Champion mode, and was ranked 115 on Extra Mode last time I checked.

Just did a video on Pac-Man too..

*bump*

so anyone else care to join in? regular rounds of Halo, Guitar Hero, and any arcade game. I'd like to get in some competitive Sonic 2 races as well.

Count me in on the 'all achievements on Pac-Man CE' group! Don't think I'll be fighting for top score bragging rights though - the achievement points are sufficient enough for me.

And what is the deal with the achievement points on Geometry Wars? I can't seem to manage anything over 250,000 pts.

Practice. go for the pacifism acheivement every time and it'll get you used to avoiding enemy clusters.
learn to zig zag across the screen, firing behind you as ships follow, then suddenly turn towards them and blast through the cluster so they have to change direction.

Also: bombs. don't lose multipliers and you get from 100,000 to 250,000 to 500,000 VERY QUICKLY.

Multiplayer I mostly do Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4, but by the time I get back to Madison I expect Gamefly to have delivered R6 Vegas 2, and I expect that multiplayer to kick all kinds of ass.
