in case you haven't seen it..

there is a free home arcade game that
you access on xbox live..(or windows pc):
------------------------------------
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/splash/g/gameroomxbla

it's pretty cool, you can setup your own
arcade (color/lights/cabinets etc)..

there's a limited number of games,
and yes, you have to rebuy games even
if you already had them.

you can buy tokens, or the games, and check
out other peoples arcades..

the cool thing is they have a few 2600 games
(millipede, and yars revenge), and intellivision
games along with arcade games..

you can issue challenges to other players, and
the best part is the leaderboard..

you can watch replays for the high scores to!

very well done..

i hope they add more games to it..

looks like they're getting a lot of action there..

check it out..

Yeah I've been thinking of getting into the action... especially since Chopper Command has shown up... haven't delved any points into the gaming yet though.

yeah, you should get it..

there's a lot more atari 2600/intellivision and
arcade games now..

--------------------
got the top score for atari 2600 - millipede
using the pc version , and played with KEYBOARD !!! (ugh)..

476,572
check out the replay..

yeah, i milked the first board for 70k (could theoretically
go to a million).. but that would be boring..

more details here:

anyways, i'll be hanging out there for awhile, since
there's a lot more competition..

but i'll be back once in awhile..
there's still a lot cooler games here for now..

they release games every week, so there's always something
to look forward to..

well, there's going to be about 100 games in gameroom soon..

i'm pretty much staying there..
there's a lot of competition..

and new games added EVERY week...

atari/konami aracade games... atari 2600 and
intellivision so far..

lots of challenges, and you can compete with others..

looks like people have set up challenge systems, and
with the latest update :

DYNAMIC updated leaderboards,
so when you're playing, you see your score risng
from the bottom of the pack (say, 10,000 place in
centipede... ) past the middle thousands, and up to
the top 20, if you're really good... it's a fun addition (optional),
and really adds to the competetiveness..

check it out... there's a lot happening there..

Yeah... but it's not a TRUE HARP (or MARP, really) competition until we exchange gamertags. Wink Mine is gameboyf9 if you'd like to add me...
