Entries are of course eligible throughout the month by submitting a score done through or YouTube as well. This contest will end on April 30, 2014.

    Note: Any console (except no arcade and no computer) game is allowed in this contest for high score attempts including portable system games as long as they follow the Retroids Videolympics Scoreboard rules. (For official rules, please visit the official Videolympics Scoreboard rules thread).

    pretty awesome contest, hopefully this will get tons of people playing some old-school goodness!
  2. Trickman
    Yep! Any game is allowed for score chasing as long as it's score-based and on a console -- that means new gen consoles as well! :)

    Looks like I'll be playing Resogun for a reason!

    do we have to be on camera still though? i don't really like recording/streaming video of myself.
  6. Trickman
    Yep. Sorry. It's the only way we can totally be sure it's the player actually playing the game. You can put the camera on yourself in the beginning and end only if you want. Check out rules. It says the best method in order to be legit. Thanks!
