    Default Gamers let's support this unique new gaming site

    Hey guys I'm just sharing this awesome and unique game website which currently needs help from gamers like us.

    It's called Highscorewins.com and it will be in beta phase soon.

    The site will be offering fun arcade games and each time you play there is an entry fee to pay, which forms a ‘pool’. The game stays open for a period of time e.g. 48 hours. Players can play as many times as they want. At the end of the 48 hours the players with the highest 3 scores win the pool of money.

    Great idea isn't it? Learn more and show your support by checking out their funding campaign at IndieGoGo: [URL="http://www.indiegogo.com/HighScoreWins?c=home"]http://www.indiegogo.com/HighScoreWins?c=home[/URL]

    What is awesome about that? Who in their right mind would sign up to something like that?

    You're gonna have your bunch of 7or8 guys who think it's a great idea, will learn the games and win everytime. Everyone else is paying to lose and you skim off your little wage for providing such an ridiculous 'service'

    This has got fail written all over it. All of these little scandals fail miserably, even the ones that actually put some effort in and if it's the 3 guys from the video setting it up.......

    then all I can say is good luck....you're gonna need it,

    Now bugger off before the b comes and bans me again.

    Sadly "awesome" is one of those words so overused by the youth of today that its become pretty meaningless.

    Here's what awesome is (from Bill Engvall):

    Webster's dictionary defines awesome as "anything that leaves you in awe and wonder."

    Like winning the lottery ... twice. That would be awesome.

    Getting a phone call from the IRS saying you've been audited and they owe you $50,000. That would be awesome.

    Ladies, you wake up tomorrow and the newspaper reads "Scientists have discovered a way for men to experience childbirth." That would be awesome.

    Getting invited to the Playboy Mansion ... on trampoline night. That would be awesome.

    And I started thinking what would be awesome for Bill Engvall? What would leave me in awe and wonder?

    And it would have to be if I left this stage tonight and went back to my hotel room. And Shania Twain met me at my door, wearing nothing but a fur coat, holding a note from my wife that said "have a good time."

    THAT would be AWESOME!


    Needless to say your website is not "awesome"

    I always wanted to lose real money every time I play a game. What a revolutionary idea.

    Isn't this effectively gambling? Not sure whether you need a license to run gambling sites on the net or if it's just 'real life' - but if so I hope you've got your asses covered.

    Also I'd rather save myself three hours of tetris and spend the afternoon feeding fivers into my paper shredder.
