So after a lot of nudging, I've taken the plunge and starting competing in the latest installment of the MGL (MAME Gaming League). It's a fun tournament that is free and open to all gamers worldwide. You can enter at any time.
This is from Paul Hornitzky (OOO), who runs the MGL:
"There will be 9 games played over 8 weeks, competing world wide on the most challenging and toughest video games of all time. 2 games will be released at the start, then 1 game each week, with the final 2 games released at the same time for the finale. Games are only open for 17 days each, so gamers must play their best in that time and post their scores before the game is closed. At the end of each MGL, points will be accumulated for each gamer toward the World Championship of eSports Scoreboard."
The first two games for this quarter are Space Invaders and Mr. Do!
Fellow gamer IllSeaBass finished 3rd in the 39th installment and had been urging me to participate. I finally caved in & figured it was worth a shot. I don't expect to win - I'm sure there will be some games that I've either never played or were never good at playing - so my goal is to not embarrass myself lol.
At least I'll always have this One Shining Moment (TM)...
It's only a :44 clip but I hope you check it out.
