I feel like I've been lacking too .__. I got obsessed with completing Super Meat Boy, which I started before the Tournament began...and I finally 200G'd it last night. Today, I found out the first Issue of the Dexter comic series released so I went and bought that, spent the past few hours editing the Wiki I administer with the data I got from it.

>_> I'm hesitant to start Halo Wars because I don't want a massive grind after the next genre begins...and I'm not sure how many achievements I can get ASAP in a short amount of time there.

Edit: SORRY JAMIE! >__<

I was wondering this too. Not that I'd mess with it...I'm a completionist and I don't really like Angry Birds that much, so I wouldn't enjoy going through a lot of shit just to get it completed.

Defense Grid is kind of pissing me off now...apparently there was an update that raised the point values on some levels, for example the third one. Originally it was 32K for Gold, now it's 56K. I kept ending up short multiple times until I found a video with a method that actually worked. Unfortunately, the PC has a trick that lets you start the waves WITHOUT setting a tower...which gave him more Resources in interest buildup. Thus, his score was roughly 80 or so higher than my own. But I still cleared the damn thing.

They all should be identical in their grouping. Note that I actually brought up in this thread if they should be strategy or not, but for now I will at least make them all match (i.e. all strategy).

I call shenanigans. Changing genres mid week is showing clear favouritism. And after those "favours" you demanded during PAX, that favouritism should benefit me!

On the plus side, I can buy things on my Windows Phone again, so fear me.

Less than 48 hours to go folks!

Remember that strategy points stop counting at midnight PT on Saturday. I will post the next genre tomorrow morning, but points in the new gamerscore don't start counting until Sunday at 12:01am.

I'd imagine since Creech will announce this upcoming week's genre tomorrow, that the after 8am gmt Sunday the previous genre's achievements won't be counted in the tournament, only achievements earned in the genre that becomes effective at 8am.

Basically...insert disc 2.

i propose a name change. something like ''Unbrokensoul...and the other guy''. Dude's fucking tearing it up. i'm ashamed of my performance in comparison, although strategy is not one of my better genres. for the love of god, please don't pick music.

I'd love for Music, my motivation to play through my backlog there is less than zero at the moment. Granted next week would be very bad, 6 day work week >_>

While I wouldn't mind something easy like shooters, something tells me that even though I have my own fair share of them to play, everyone else will beast the hell out of it and I'll do super bad by comparison >_<

i would get 0 with music. i don't own any and have no intention of getting any music games.

as for shooters, i think it's likely a lot of peoples strong point, so everyone would do well, and the person with the most downtime would probably do best.

i don't think i have a genre where i'm confident i would do best.

If music comes out, this will be two failed weeks for me in a row. Finger crossed we get something like shooter so everyone can go berserk this early in the tournament.

I think that people will mostly be happy with random.org today. Certainly there is a much larger selection to choose from than there was in the Strategy genre.

Without further ado, our good friends at random.org picked 13, so starting at 12:01 am on Sunday (Pacific Time), the genre of the week is Sports and Fitness. I am already having visuals of Capn Doug doing his wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle BOOM! routine...oh, dear god, make it stop!

Remember that Strategy is still the genre through the end of Saturday!


Final reminder since I will be calculating scores on Sunday.

Yeah I made a specific point not to mention it before in the off chance I might jynx it, but it came up anyways! I have a feeling this'll be my weakest category overall, I actually did alright with Strategy due to grabbing Bomberman but this is not looking promising; all of my existing games are either mostly done (FIFA Street 3, WWE 08/10, Nascar 09), or will take forever to get anywhere (F1 2010, Wipeout, EA Sports Active 2).

Really the only way I could be competitive this Round would be to go out and buy a bunch of old EA Sports titles, which is an option but honestly I wouldn't be having much fun in the process. My gamercard would also look pretty littered, though I'm generally not one to care about that. Still though, all it took was one good game to keep up during Strategy so that might be all there is to it this week.

Decent excuse to jump on my Kinect though, especially to give Sonic Free Riders another shot after having calibration issues with it before.

i'm not looking forward to next week. i'm thinking fight night champion and maybe a couple hundred 's for the week if i'm lucky. I did do better than i thought i would with strategy though, even though i did pretty bad.

oh well, off to peruse the sports section...

EDIT: a little bit of a warning to people, racing games are classed as sports games too it seems, so don't stock up on all racing games for this week, just in case we end up getting racing down the line and you have no games left.

Oh, nice. Perfect timing for me to go to my mother's. She has so many Kinect fitness games. Plus GRID 2 counts as sports, so I'll get back to 99% completion real quick.

So I guess racing games also count within Sports genre?

Awesome! I have a TON of sports games in the backlog that I can complete, also some of them are very easy. It should hopefully be a good week for me.

I guess it's a little late to post this about strategy, but I really feel like Monster Island (both the WP and Win8 versions) should be strategy, not action. That game is essentially the same as Fragger and Angry Birds. I think it should be changed, even if it won't apply to this round of the tourney.

There is a thread in the Leaderboards forum where I specifically brought up this point using Monster Island as an example. Of course, I was arguing the other side, that I am not sure they should be strategy at all. I only got one response if you want to chip in...
