Rayman Legends 49th Place
I’ve been playing this game a few minutes before bed for several years now, and my persistence has gradually paid off. Tonight I broke into the top 50 overall out of nearly half a million players!

Rayman Legends

I am now ranked 80th in the world out of 264,286 players. Try not to think too hard about the math. Two medals a day, four on Sundays… that is a lot of days.

Rayman 90th Place

I am now ranked 90th place overall out of 221,277 players! I’m not sure it will get much lower than this, so wanted to preserve my score here for posterity. :)

Finished Rayman Legends four days after release with 100% completion! I guess all that challenge app practice paid off. At the time of completion I am ranked 88th place in the world. Completion time: 32 hours.

These are my final screenshots from the last day of the Rayman Challenges App. I ended the challenge in 290th place in the world, with my lowest ranking in 285th place. I have really enjoyed the challenges and liked sitting down at the end of the day to play them. The app released on April 25, 2013 and ended on September 3rd, 2013. My total time played: 144 hours and 52 minutes!

This is definitely one of the most difficult and well made games I have ever played. The level difficulty is out of this world, but the game designers provide the player with the tools and the responsive play control to pull it off. I like when game difficulty feels like it is only difficult because I’m not good enough, not because it’s poorly designed. It makes it much more rewarding when you finally get through a tough level.

This is a fun little 3DS eShop game that I downloaded. It is incredibly fun. It has elements of Contra, Mega Man, Super Mario, Donkey Kong Country, you name it. Super glad I played this one!

Finally got 100% completion in Super Mario U. Had some help from my friend Jesse Alberth, it made the final levels a blast!
