Achievment of the Week: Featuring PAC-MAN


All Ghosts
Eat all ghosts in succession after eating a Power Pellet!


SUPERGHOST always gets all the ghosts!  The legendary arcade game PAC-MAN has made it’s way to the Xbox Live Arcade in all it’s glory!  Growing up I was a game crazy kid, but growing up on a farm 2 miles from a town of 250 made it difficult to facilitate any kind of video game hobby.  Usualy as close as I was able to get to a ‘hot’ arcade game like PAC-MAN was to buy the breakfast cereal which was 100% sugar.  One day in my youth we drove to a neighboring town that was bigger than my own, they had an arcade!  So I went to check it out cause as I said above, I am game crazy.  When I get there I find about a dozen kids of varying age surrounding a table-top machine, on closer inspection I discover that it is none other than the legendary PAC-MAN!!!

So I sit and watch all these kids play and I can’t help but feel important, for I am in the prescence of PAC-MAN (keep in mind I AM 7-8 years old at this time).  Knowing my time was short I wanted to try the game, so I timidly try to place my quarter at the machine.  An older kid asks me if I am going to play or not, that is my cue to charge forth.  I plug my quarter in and I am playing!  I am playing then…bam …bam…bam…GAME OVER.  It was over before I know it and I had to go, but I played PAC-MAN that day!

Later in life I realized that the PAC-MAN machine I was playing on was one of those clever, pirated PAC machinrs that were floating about at the time.  A few years later my uncle purchased the town pool hall and low and behold, we had ourselves a stand up PAC-MAN machine (official) in my own home town!  To end off this little story here I am 33 years old and still suck at this game, but I enjoy it, and it is one of my earliest gaming memories!  (ps.  how disapointed were you when you saw and played that awful Atari 2600 PAC-MAN? blech!)




I like CFL Football, Video Games, and Social here I am!
