And the February Gamer of the Month is…

nullWe’ve had this score verified a while, but didn’t have enough time to sit down and write articles to go with it – which is why you’re seeing a bunch of articles now that should have been announced a month or so back.  But, as we all know, life happens and it’s better late than never.

February’s game challenge was on SSX Tricky.  The February Winter Challenge Objective in this game will be to complete a single event course in the fastest possible time. Choose any character you wish to use. The course that we picked is: Elysium Alps, France.

Congratulations to Ryan Sullivan who achieved a time of 0:05:17:73 via the Playstation 2 and won the challenge.

As Video Game Scoreboard’s Gamer of the Month, Ryan receives:

  • VGS T-Shirt
  • Interview for Gamer Profile
  • Named Gamer of the Month for that Month
  • Competes at end of year Gamer of the year Tournament (postponed till end of 2014).
  • Interviewed for a profile article on Obsolete Gamer.
