October Gamer of the Month Goes To…

vgs-october-gamer-of-the-month-geometry-warsThanks to those who participated, and attempted to participate but were caught up by technical difficulties, in our October Gamer of the Month contest.  We had two official entries – one from Dave Vogt of Gaming World Wide and the other from Michael Sroka, creator of the new podcast Settle it on the Screen – for the contest, but only one Gamer of the Month.

Congratulations to Dave Vogt for setting the first place record via the Wii with a score of 363,025.

Second place goes to Michael Sroka via Xbox 360 with a score of 102,930.

Good job to both of them and congrats to David for being named Video Game Scoreboard’s Gamer of the Month for October.

The 5-minute Retro-Evolved Challenge will be added as a permanent track to our scoreboard.  If you think you can beat either David’s on the Wii or Michael’s on the Xbox 360, we encourage you to do so.

November’s Gamer of the Month Challenge can be found here.

Gamer of the Month: The October Geometry Challenge


Video Game Scoreboard is pleased to announce the third “Gamer of the Month” challenge – the October Geometry Challenge. Unfortunately, we received no entries for the August Gamer of the Month Challenge, even with the extended deadline, so there is no August/September Gamer of the Month.

The October Geometry Challenge is Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved – 5 minute score challenge on the Xbox 360 or Wii. Please see the rules below for an explanation and the break down.

The Rules:

  1. This month’s competition runs from today, Oct. 6 to Nov. 15, 2013. October winners will be announced in the second half of November, once all scores are verified and places tallied.
  2. Players must submit a recording of their 5 minute record score attempt on Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved via XBLA on the Xbox 360 or via Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved found on the Geometry Wars: Galaxies disc for Wii.
  3. Players may only compete on the Xbox 360 or Wii.  They may ONLY compete on Retro Evolved for this competition. Scores for this game will be added to our variation list under 5 minute challenge and tracked on both Wii and Xbox.  For the purpose of the competition, a combined scoreboard will show the ranks of all players competing together.
  4. Recording rules must be followed.
  5. Timer starts when the play button is hit. Score will be when 5  minute time has finished.
  6. Game ends and score is recorded when 5 minutes is up or when all lives are done, whichever comes first.
  7. Final Score is the score submitted for recording purposes.
  8. Players may submit in any of the ways we accept, however, if you are mailing submissions in, please be sure to have them postmarked no later than Nov. 10, 2013, so we can receive them in time for the Nov. 15 deadline.
  9. The October Geometry Challenge is this: Players get to see how high of a score they can set playing 5 minutes of Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved or the max they get on the lives they have if they run out of lives before 5 minutes.


The Gamer of the Month will receive:

  • 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
