I noticed this while watching Gamespot's video review. When they cut to the leaderboard I saw a few familiar names at and near the top. GB represent!

The list is a bit weird, comprised of only the reviewers friends, but brad was still rank 1!

Although jeff was 9 and vinny was 14. Keep in mind that only media has the game so far, they will be far down that list very shortly sadly =p

@Redbullet685: At the time of the podcast, Ryan hadn't finished the game, so I imagine that when this screen was taken, he hadn't gone far enough/done well enough yet to get onto the leaderboard.

I'm guessing Brad is only lackluster at games while recording.

I just played the demo and checked the leaderboards. Seems like Brad will stay Bastion master for all eternity. %)

I can't believe I had to watch a exxon mobile ad to see the bastion review over there.

He's still the only one up there with all 10 of the things turned on.  
 
I'm really loving the game so far, got that vibe to it that's sticking in me. Hope it's not too short.

Brad should have done it with a account named giantbomb.com, free advertisement.

So, how are the leaderboards shaking out? Brad still on top? If so, will he be so forever?

Seems like he'll always be up there! I managed to snag myself #33 on the leaderboards!

JustinCovert has the most first place positions for achievements on Giant Bomb than any other user. And yes Justin does have a Giant Bomb account.

How does the leaderboard work? I checked earlier and a bunch of people have now done what Brad has yet he still remains. Does that mean he is number 1 for life?

Yeah, I think it's just in order of who finished it first.

I think that's pretty dumb. A leaderboard should be based on skill, not a "first come, first served" mentality.

So the leaderboard will be #1 is whoever got it first? Isn't that unfair since Brad got it before the game was even available?

Yeah, I meant it was neat that Giant Bomb should permanently be on the top of the leaderboards. There's even a giantbomb.com link on his profile! :D 
  
As a design choice, you're right, it's dumb.

Seems like a design oversight on their behalf. Maybe they should've implement some score or time system with weekly and monthly boards, ya know like all score boards :P

So basically the top of the challenge leaderboards are set in stone and have been since before most of us could even buy the game? That's kind of ridiculous.

I never was able to figure out the leaderboards for this, when I beat it a second time my score went up slightly.

thats about the only thing I dislike about leaderboards on games like these...the first person to get it keeps it there is nothing I can do in the game that will get me high on the leaderboard.
