This is a simple one, guys. Get hold of a copy of the brilliant Pac-Man Championship Edition DX (360 or PS3) and try and beat the VideoGamer.com staff on the leaderboards. The ones who are playing, anyway.
Jamin, Pearson and myself are currently engaged in a rather serious tussle, and we thought we'd open up the bitter conflict to everyone. More enemies means more smack talk!
The rules: the course will be Championship II, the mode will be Score Attack - 5 Minutes. Post your scores in this thread (or any progress made towards winning) and for the moment we'll go off trust - possibly heading towards cameraphone shots or me checking your score when things start getting progressively more aggressive.
We'll keep this one running for a while - let's say Monday 10th January 2011. That gives you enough time to practice, which you'll need to - the three of us are pretty good already, you know.
What do I get if I win?
If (and that's a very strong if) a pack of forumites manages to topple the VG staff crew, the person at the top of the leaderboard will receive 800 Microsoft Points. The game only costs 800 points, so anyone supremely confident in their abilities can now safely put their money where their mouth is.
Oh - I couldn't arrange a PS3 alternative, for the record, but we might be able to sort something out if you happen to be playing on Sony's magic box.

I'm in, even though I seem to have reached some kind of wall at 1.5m. Just so you know, I am currently the lowest of all I know from here who are playing, and even I have an S-rank score. (Which is good enough that anyone can download the replay.) Also, another of the guys on my flist is in the top 30 for Championship I, and his score currently tails mine. So, every single one of us should be pretty proud already!

Nice one Gaston. I appreciate the fact that a staff member has done something like this without the usual prompting/nagging of a forumite.
And I'm sure it's just coincidence you are currently topping the leaderboard...

You're still higher than me, not that I've played it enough.

Ah nice one Martin!
I was thinking about picking this up anyway but I think I'm gonna have to now.

Your 1.5M is several hundred thousand higher than my score.
