Got 14,780 on ICB today with only two deaths. Had to cut the game off after that cuz I was only on a work break. I've also started working on the racing game Hydro Thunder. Gonna take it one track at a time until I know all the secret tunnels. Then I'll start going for good times. Should be a lot like Cruis'n USA but with less trollish AI. I'm also back to practicing Frogger.

I forgot to mention that two days ago I nearly had a perfect game of skeeball. I got 440 points on a nine-ball machine with 50 points as the highest points you can get per ball (actually, I got 490 points because I had been working on the mchine at the time and didn't realize that the machine had an extra ball in it). We have 4 machines at the barcade and they each play a little differently, so I'll need to get used to their specific quirks. As of right now I have a throw down that seems to be averaging me about 350ish points a round. To put this in perspective, we occasionally do a day where we give out beers to anyone who can get over 300. People at the bar have literally been begging me to keep playing. lol. I'll be trying a few attempts every day I work in hopes of putting a perfect game together.

Been out of commission for a couple weeks because I hurt my back weightlifting. Finally back to almost 100%, so I was able to work tonight. Just wanted to note that it appears that, eventually, at some point down the line, I will be the main person on staff providing impetus and/or direction for the Up Down's high-score board as well as a possible gaming league/team. As of right now, though, I've been liberally sharing tricks/skills/techniques with many people on several different games in order to help prepare a field of players for when this goal comes to fruition. Most significantly, I've been doing this with our 4-player cocktail T&F machine. I'm slowly starting to notice that more and more people are getting good at this game and even lingering at it for an hour or more. I hope that pretty soon I'll start seeing people breaking into the 70k and 80k range on the 1-loop setting.

Below is the second text-dump of my goals list (from 2014, but it remained relatively untouched through 2015 and the first half of 2016 as well because of Rusty Quarter's closure). Saving it for record-keeping purposes before I slim down my goals (since many of my personal cabs/consoles are in storage for the time being) and update them for the rest of 2016.
________________________________________________________________________________

THE FOLLOWING IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND BEING UPDATED TO REPRESENT MY 2014 GOALS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preface to 2014 goals: Since Rusty Quarters is now closed, and my computer is too old/slow to open up Parallels and play/record MAME on windows without lag (I have a Mac), most of my game playing this year will be limited to both the 60-in-1 machine I intend on finishing up soon as well as the CAG collections I have acquired for various console systems (PS2, Xbox, Gamecube). I'll be marking down on what particular system scores are achieved as I go, as I know not all systems are fully analogous. I'm listing the entire list of games in the 60-in-1 and my CAG console collections for now until I have a chance to play some of each game. As I find which games I'm actually interested in (which I'll hopefully finish doing this month) I will whittle down the list to a more manageable size. If anyone has a particular game suggestion for me to try or that they think I'd like, please let me know! Lastly, I also intend on saving up to buy a better camera with which to stream as well as a better camera mount for my cabs.

General Note: This list can be changed to be made harder as I see fit. If I am finding a goal too easy, I will bump it up a bit. Already done this with several games in the past. I'll be noting when I up a PB in the main thread if it is significant and then editing this first post as I progress.

CRUIS'N USA:

Note: I now own a CUSA upright arcade cab, so this will allow me more opportunity to pursue improving my CUSA times this year. I also introduced myself to some of the twitch.tv streamers of the N64 version of this game and they ended up finding some evidence of even better times having been performed on this game bitd (http://donkeykongforum.com/index.php?topic=100.msg13851#msg13851), so now there is more incentive for me to continue trying to improve on this game.

2014 goal: Get the WR on every CUSA Arcade track:

Key:
* means I have the WR
# means this race is only available during the 'all-tracks' race, and thus (usually) requires much more effort to play and improve on

Note: I will be playing all tracks on the hardest difficulty for the 2014 year on forward.

Spent a couple hours tidying up the first post as well as filling in the "WR" columns with TG info. Gonna have to probably do another session or two looking into things more closely and tidying things up even more. Done for tonight, though.

I gotta finish putting in my trackball on my 60-in-1 and then get it to my church's youth room so that I can start getting pushed on these titles!

EDIT: If anyone looks over the WRs I've inputted and is very certain I've gotten something wrong (or knows a score I am still missing), please do me the favor and post a comment here letting me know so the amount of research I have to do is less. Thanks!

Thanks! I'll add it on. Eventually, I'm gonna check which score is higher for each game, mame or arcade track, and post the highest of the two in the "WR" column.

I just got home from helping move in the Up Down's new arcade game: Killer Queen. This game looks epic. It's also apparently one of the most expensive arcade games out there. It's a 5 v. 5 game, with like 3 different ways to win. It looks to have lots of similarities to Joust, so hopefully I can get a leg up on the competition, as I'm sure we're gonna start forming some teams and leagues fairly quickly.

Here is a site put together by the Kansas City Up Down organizing some info about the game, if you're curious: http://www.killerqueenkc.com/

Updated pinball WRs from Pinside website data where applicable (i.e. better than found elsewhere). Also added a random 2.3m score on Iron Man. Should be easy to beat.

Asked my manager what game at the bar I should work on next. We couldn't really decide, so I'm pulling a complete random choice out of nowhere and giving giant Connect 4 a shot (since I already play lots of Chess and Go). Already loving it. In terms of arcade games, though, I think Crystal Castles will be most practical, due to how short a game it is and I can get some games in even while on shift on the slow days.

Currently killing it at connect 4 at the bar against random people. Haven't lost yet, even though I still haven't memorized all the Joseki "perfect games" (there are like 25 of them that are significant, apparently).

I've also had a guy going against me at Ice Cold Beer (actually, several people are starting to get goo at this game and T&F -one guy is up to the high 80k's on T&F!). He's beaten my overall high score as well as my one-loop high score. I upped my one-loop best to 5170 points. Gonna add a row for that one.

Been playing a lot of Killer Queen. Up Down just had our first tournament last night and it was awesome. I wasn't able to compete because I am an employee, but my forearm stamina is getting great because of the game (I am the main proponent for the double flap constantly for flying in the game -it is kinda like Joust with Mario Bros. physics)

Because of this I'm playing more and more T&F. I'm now getting a lot more consistent at the wobble tech because of this as well. I also had a chance to play a bit of Defender and BT last night as a break from things and I'm slowly remembering the patterns for the latter.

I can feel the bug coming back!

Just wanted to note that Up Down MPLS just got a new, huge shipment of tokens in which puts them now right at having a total of 1,100,000 tokens in circulation! Big Big Big!

Been mainly working on Ice Cold Beer and Killer Queen, but I wanted to give a small update: Because of people wanting to train their forearm stamina for KQ I've gotten a lot of people interested in T&F. Several of our top KQ players are breaking into the 80K range on T&F, so I'm hoping to try to push them even higher and maybe into the 90K+ range eventually. If we're lucky, maybe we'll become a T&F hub of sorts!

Update:

Crazy Taxi and APB got removed from the arcade.
ICB (one loop): New PB of 5220
