New Weapon in Geometry Wars Arms Race

MyGamerCard has whipped up an easy way to show everyone just how much you suck.

A number of you have sent me private messages the last couple of weeks wanting to compare scores in Geometry Wars 2. Unfortunately, the stupid cap on number of friends in the Xbox Live friends list means we can't just sync up in-game and easily see how we stack up against each other.

So this past week, developer Bizarre integrated GW2 scoring into their website, and the gamerscore wunderkinds over at MyGamerCard were quick to swoop down and turn that data into an easily embedded high-score graphic. Proving for the umpteenth time that I'm not afraid to embarrass myself on the Internet, here's mine:



I tested this with my Giant Bomb profile, and it embeds nicely in your "About Me" box (use the Edit HTML Code button in the editor to drop it in). Head over to MyGamerCard and punch in your own gamertag to grab your score module, and then start feeling really bad about how far behind you've fallen. If you'll excuse me, I need to go work on my King score. At least it's higher than Ryan's.

Cool, just added it.

I just got the original GW two days ago and I can't even get 50k... then I decided to download the demo for GW2 and I got 440k on my first run through. Is GW2 easier? I also saw in the GB that the game has a different multiplier system... so I guess that's it.

Posted by Dan

See those pacifism and king scores? Suck it, Brad :P

...sadly you beat me on like everything else
Posted by SoSerious

Orange, yeah the multiplier in GW2 gets up a lot higher then 1, so the scores get a lot higher.

Posted by Tarsier

Haha I beat you in everything but sequence =P

Posted by Mjolnir

I just got the game 2 days ago, so I'm still improving

Posted by Subway

I'd like to compare with some other players...add me and i'll accept
Posted by Rmack

Very cool, I just saw this on Jeff's profile and was wondering where he got it. Nice way to compare scores without having to go through hundreds of thousands of names.

Posted by Vigorousjammer

Posted by F1

Hey Infneon! Here's mine to make you feel better about yourself, to a certain extent.

Posted by HumanTorch101

I will be getting this game sometime soon so then everyone can know my scores.

Posted by Gamer_152

Wow, nice scores. But kudos to Bizzare, this is a really neat little thing.

Not doing too bad in Waves and Sequence
Posted by borgmaster

wow, ya'll make me look like a blind monkey with those scores...

Posted by FelixLighter

Ugh.  I try not to think about my overall ranking.  I'm better than my friends and that's all that matters. 
Pro Tip:   Any friend that has the audacity to beat your Geo Wars 2 score really isn't a friend at all, so you should promptly remove them from your friends list.
Posted by Arrers

That's really cool. unfortuantly for me, none of my friends on Live have geometry wars or a Giant Bomb account, so I can't make use of it.

Posted by Hellscell

sweeet
