Friendly Leaderboard Competition

#1 Edited by Cwaff (1260 posts) -

Whenever you play through a level it shows your friends times and ghosts to give you an incentive to replay levels and try and beat their scores.

I however have no friends who own this game and was wondering would anyone here be up for adding one another on XBL for a bit of friendly Giantbomb competition?

No one on my friends list has a taste for this awesomeness either, I took the liberty of adding you so don't freak out when you see someone wanting to oil up.

Have you noticed a really minor sound distortion? It happens every few seconds in my game, I heard it immediately when the crazy good menu music started playing, bums me out.

Updated! Have to say, it's retrying levels is much more fun with the ghosts to compete with!

Yeah, it is.   I went back and improved some of my times trying to beat yours.  I think I got you on some of 'em.   I've finished Hero 30 mode....now I gotta go back and pick up the few titles I missed and get some better times on some stages.

I'll add my name to the list just to make you feel better if you're often at the bottom of the list (like me)

At least you won't be the absolutely last one :)

Someone in this thread did a stage in around 6 seconds, I spent an age trying to repeat the act but never succeeded :(

hehe.   That floodgate stage.    I'll tell you how I did it if you want.   I got it done in 6.66.....someone else in this thread beat me with about 6.46 seconds. :p

Sheesh, the #1 time on the global leaderboards for that stage was 5,33 or something, I couldn't get past 6,16 :p

I kinda lost my initial enthusiasm once I realized that Evil Lord 30 & co. got the short end of the stick, some of those looked like wicked fun and I lamented not owning a PSP. Future DLC.. I hope.

Yeah....I've tried all kinds of variations on speedy/light gear available for that stage and I can't beat my 6.66 seconds.   I guess there is some exact line that you need to go in, but I can't figure it out.   Make one wrong turn and that's almost a second wasted.
 
And I agree.....it does kind of suck that they changed the other modes, but I loved the Hero 30 mode, so I definitely feel good about the purchase.   They have the "Download Content" option on the menu, so I bet they will have some sort of DLC...that doesn't mean  it will be those modes, though.
