Game Room Club

Post by Darran@Retro Gamer » Wed Mar 24, 2010 9:00 pm

Thought it would be fun to set up a club and we can do weekly tournaments and stuff. Maybe we'll find some way of incorporating them into the magazine as well...

Anyway, if people want to get into the 80s fun that Game Room is offering feel free to add your names below so we can all add each other as friends.

My gamertag is Mark Owen

Nice :)
Fancy setting a couple of challenges either tonight or tomorrow night. Is it worth listing games so people know what they can compete on? I still can't work out how the playing games in people's arcades work yet.

I think the option is located on the menu when you select another arcade machine in their arcade.

The sooner the better for getting some challenges going, whats a good choice for the first game? Asteroids?

Where do I find this? I don't seem to be able to.

My gamertag is the same as my forum name for anyone interested.

right. while we can't all play and chat at the same time, you can send challenges out to everyone on your friends list. You have a week to do them, so no pressure ;)

I can do weekly, though only on XBL Silver so no online multiplayer, just high scores on leaderboards.
