Hello forum! Welcome to January. On what is clearly the most miserable month of the year, I figured it would be nice to make Jamin feel even more despondent - so let's all thrash him at Doritos Crash Course on the 360.
We chose Crash Course because it's not bad and it's also free, which means everybody should be able to easily get hold of it and have a go. You also get to watch your silly little avatar run around like a big eejit, which is a bonus. And you can rinse it for 200G in minutes.
The rules: the level we'll be using is Japan 4 aka Muzukashii Wheel. It's near the end of the 15 levels, so you'll need to rocket through the earlier stages to get to it, but it's one of the most complex levels in the game so it should hold up to us battering it for a few days.
Post your best time in the thread and I'll compile it all into a nice dandy list.
We'll keep this one running until Monday February 7.
What do I get if I win?
The person who comes top (if they're not a member of our illustrious staff AND they're in the UK - sorry foreign peoples, though you're more than welcome to join in for glorious glory) will get 800 shiny Microsoft fun monies.
Also, congratulations to IcarusFW for thrashing the rest of us at Pac-Man Championship Edition DX last month. More like IcarusFTW, amirite?
Here's the Xbox.com link for Crash Course. Did I mention it's free?

PS3 only people are generally far too busy moaning and crying all over the internet to ever actually play any games online.
Looks like I'm not as done with this game as I thought I was!
EDIT : 01.47.115, although I know of at least 3 places I can improve. Sub 1.40 is definitely possible, 1.30 is ..... doable, but maybe not by me.
