So, I had some friends over today for some pizza and gaming fun. I set up five challenges across 11 games and they were essentially for the highest score, or in some cases, merely finishing. This was easy to do using OnLive, as I just selected all the games ahead of time and added them to my favourites.

The first challenge was a rail shooter: Remington Super Slam Hunting: Africa. The event was Safari 1's Meerkcat Madness stage. I set the top score to beat at 3330. The highest score achieved by my friends was at 2020.

Next up was some Sega Bass Fishing, arcade mode. I caught a measely 3.07 pounder and came in last. The winner nailed an even 20 pounder.

We moved on to over to Red Bull X-Fighters where we did the first event of Mexico. I had no idea how to play and just did flips the entire which got me a score of 2766. One person couldn't even score, and the highest of my friends got 2154.

Aaaa! A Reckless Disregard for Gravity was up next. My score of 11000 was beat by 300 points. I'm really not good at that game, but neither was most every one else. My losing didn't feel quite so bad. 300 points wasn't too far ahead.

FlatOut 2's party mode ate up most of the chunk. We went for all stunts not realising how long it would take. They were not easy for any of us, but even our failures made for good laughs. I came in last on that one, by more than 20 points.

Alarm For Cobra 11 Nitro' first stage proved to be rather entertaining. The goal was the best finishing score. I managed to do the best on that one by not only finishing, but with only 6% damage. 54% was what I had to get under.

Some 3 minute work times in Crazy Taxi were great fun. That was another event I managed to win by breaking a thousand. 2nd place was at nine-hundred-and-something.

Air Conflicts: Secret Wars were 5 minute dogfights. I came in last with a pathetic 8 kills, while the leader got 31.

I won the split-screen Split/Second. I have been playing that one a lot lately working on medals.

I lost the Virtua Tennis 2009. I at least won one match, so I didn't completely suck. That one was an easy win. The others were fairly close.

We all tried the 100 round challenge on Space Channel 5: Part 2, to see who could get farthest. None of us could get past round 0. We could not figure out why. We were pretty sure we are on the beat. Ah, well.

We all had a lot of fun. I gave away copies of Just Cause 2, (ps3), Fear 2 (ps3), and Samba de Amigo (wii) for some of those events. The prizes were well received and awesomely unexpected. I may have to do that again next year.

With the party now over, it's time to settle down and find something to play for the rest of this Sunday. Maybe I'll work on my Air Conflicts skills. That game is very fun.
