    Basically register at this ms site on Febuary 12th and your current gamerscore puts you in one of three brackets. Gain another 1,500 gamerpoints by April 12th and you get some nifty swag.

    151 more gp and I can get in the upper bracket. Shouldnt be hard since I'll have 150 coming to me in Blitz real soon. I plan on renting a couple of the older sports games and I'll have crackdown to help me along the way as well. Also I already have Contra.

    That's kind of cool. I'm nowhere near the top bracket, and the 1500 or so points I would need for the middle bracket I'd rather wait on and get during the challenge. Might give it a try, if for nothing else but the free download of Contra.

    Then why are you even complaining? That was -my- point.

    OH NOES, no free Contra?

    I cry now.

    It's certainly better then nothing. A friend wanted me to buy Contra, I said i'd rather spend my money on something else, and it looks like it was a good decision.

    I also hope the T-shirt is cool.

    Was going for a 30 point achievement to take me over the 10k mark and I ended up with a 17 point one I didn't even know I could get in a quickplay game. So now I set in the tier three reward program with 10,001 gamerpoints.

    I'm gonna go rent MLB 2K6 and NBA 2K6 as they each have 5 or 6 total achievements that are easily exploitable for a quick 2,000 points.

    So anyone do this yet? I've just finished getting my 1500 and waiting for the rewards site to update to reflect that before I submit... Tomb Raider is a fun, quick easy 820 or so/

    I registered for it Tuesday and got a quick 1,430 points before going to bed. Got up Wednesday and found out I had to "join" the challenge as well. Finally was able to join on Thursday and so far have gotten 200 points. I'm gonna see if I can't find College Hoops 2k6 for a quick 1,000 and just finish some of my other games for the other 300.

    Yeah, I got a lot of my points finishing old games I hadn't finished. 200 from N3, 250 from Fight Night, it helpd.

    Well, it depends on what games you're playing. Some games have insanely hard achievments, some are ridiculously easy.

    I play games I want to play without thinking of the game score possibilities. the ones with super easy achievements haven't tickled my fancy, or are ports or games I already played last gen.

    Zac, you're playing Lego Star Wars. Like I told you, that one's a bitch. Worst part is you can't skip cutscenes when trying to re-do a level for something.


    I signed up and joined the challenge on the 12th, then finished a few hours later and confirmed my swag. If I'm reading mygamercard.net's reward tracker right, I was person #20 to finish the challenge.
