10K retro active? What if you did 10K, but did it before you joined this site?

Video games are like life, difficult, frustrating, but most of all, they're fun and rewarding when you slow down and enjoy them.
Reminder, this does not kickoff until the new week starts on GTN.

some have said that about racing games too Smile gamers are going to have to diversify during this competition.

Remember to play smart. There are several arcade RPGs, double tap squares! Think about the possibilities.

I hope this helps clear some stuff up. Follow the previously mentioned rules and this list of what is/isn't retroactive and you will be good to go. Once you have a VINGO, email me what row you are using, starting and ending row, I will verify it and put you on to the next round. Good luck. It is suppose to take a bit of time. If you don't do a certain game/item...this is suppose to try and break you of your gaming habits lol

So, participants, do you mind?

I don't mind.

Question regarding completing games. Do we have to buy and complete the DLC, or can we just finish the base games and achievements?

Thanks, that's what I was looking for. Pretty sure that was what you meant, but always good to make sure everyone's on the same page. Only one small thing; there is no badge for 3k in a week, so not sure how you can check that one retroactively. The Best Week badges are only for 1k, 5k, 10k in a week (that I see anyway).

I will check back on weekly stats if need be though if someone got 3100 and didn't earn Best Week Ever II.

I agree that having everyone on the same page is most definitely the right way to be. Since this is a trial run there are going to be bumps in the road. However, I have received emails that people like the idea and plan to have fun with it and that's what counts. Have fun!

Ahhh now I get what you were talking about. My bad, thought you were imagining badges. Wink

Good luck gamers! Have fun!
