I need Game Room pals!

Dudes (and Ladies):
 
I am in serious need of some XBL friends who actually play on Game Room!  Everyone on my list seems to hate it, for some reason, and no amount of coercion or blackmail seems to be working to convince my real life friends either.  The Challenge system seems so cool, but less so when all your jerk ass friends don't want in on the action.
 
Anyone out there who is looking for another (admittedly mediocre) competitor, add me!  It's xJERKFACEx

I'm up for it, none of my friends play Game room either. Anyway the only game I have is Shoalins-road though so your out of luck if you don't have that, My gamertag is Johnkisawsomex5 its a very shitty name.

I don't have much on Game Room atm, but I plan on picking up titles as they finally start releasing stuff (can't believe they let a month go since launch without anything).  None of my friends even touched Game Room so it would be nice to have someone to do challenges with and such.  Add me if you want GT:  Turkfinn.  I'll add you when I hop on later.  I have Tutankham of all games but will def pick up other stuff if I could do the challenges.

@JerkFace:  Haha I know, it's more of a sentimental thing.  I played that game a whole bunch as a kid, even though it's not what I'd consider the greatest game.
#8 Posted by JerkFace (119 posts) -
@MythDarK:   Awesome!  I am going to pick up Battlantis today.  I have the other two already.
 
@Turkfinn:   I can always get behind the nostalgia vote.  That's the same reason I picked up TMNT: Turtle's in Time Re-shelled, even though I new it would be bad and would ruin my childhood.

@JerkFace:   Yea I did the same thing with TMNT.  Man that game didn't hold up well at all.  I'll pick up Battlantis or Finalizer not sure yet, i'll give both a try.  
 
Maybe we can get more challenges going between you and MythDark and whomever else.

Nobody plays Game Room because its baaad.

@Turkfinn: 
 
Battlantis is pretty good.  I like Finalizer a lot.  My favorites so far are probably Jungler (really), Road Fighter, Astrosmash, and Finalizer.  Scrambler and Super Cobra are fun, too, but hard!
 
And as for you, @End_Boss:  Pfffft!  : D

@Turkfinn:  Great, I'm adding you to my list then. Be ready for a tough challenge. =D

Sure, I'll send you a friend request when I get on. 
 
Actually, there was a whole forum topic for this.

Thanks man.  And thanks for the link.  Don't know how I missed that!

@MythDarK:  Sounds like fun to me =)
 
@JerkFace: Haha, can't wait to see it when I log on later today.

@JerkFace: 
Sure sending FR in a little while, others here can add   me (fox01313) as well though I've been waiting on other arcade games to show to fill out the collection on Game Room (really liking the concept of it as it's a great idea just not for atari/intellivison stuff). Only got Red Baron & Jungler at the moment but enough tokens to try out other machines.

@fox01313: 
 
Cool, man. Yeah, the atari and intellivision stuff hasn't aged as well as the arcade titles.  Astrosmash is great, and Millipede is playable.  Beyond that, not as much for me.
#19 Posted by Turkfinn (84 posts) -
@fox01313:   I'll add ya.  More people to play Game Room challenges with (as well as other games too), the better.
