Splosion Man Splodes Cheater's Scores

Splosion Man Splodes Cheater's Scores

Splosion Man developer Twisted Pixel has implemented an update that wipes (or splodes) cheater's scores off the Splosion Man leaderboards, just in time for a contest that will test your genuine sploding skill.

Splosion Man cheaters, your time of reckoning has come. Splodejement Day, as Splosion Man dev Twisted Pixel are calling it, is here in the form of a title update that will effectively wipe all the cheated scores that have been mucking up the Splosion Man leaderboards on Xbox Live Arcade. The update was released early this morning, and should leave the leaderboards with nothing but legitimate scores.

Unfortunately the power of this technology might be a little too much for the world to handle. Splodenet, as Twisted Pixel CEO Frank Wilson calls it, could mean the beginning of a new age: "It goes on-line August 31st, 2009. Human decisions are removed from leaderboard defense. Splodenet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Pacific Time, September 1st. There is no score but what we earn for ourselves."

Will the benefit of getting cheats off our leaderboards be worth the cost of dooming humanity to oppression at the hands of self-aware robot overlords? I only hope that we won't find out before Twisted Pixel wraps up its "Speedy Splode" contest, which will award the player with the best time in the single-player level 3-8 stage between September 6 and 12th with a Splosion Man statue and an autographed poster. Those things are sure to be useful during the robot apocalypse.

"Self Aware" SELF AWARE???? Was that just bad phraseology or did they create true A.I?

Skynet's coming. To John Connor's house!

Lame collections of old movie references are overdone. Boring.

Why did this game receive nothing but praise until Yahtzee reviewed it I wonder...

On topic, we're all doomed.

I really hated Yahtzee's review of that game, simply because the haters who haven't played it shall prosper.

Also, I for one welcome our new robot overlords!

Now they just need to do that to the CoD 4 & WaW leaderboards.
there is nothing more annoying than being pushed down because someone cheats to put their score into the trillions.
It... annoys me
*Blood boils just thinking about it*
and with that, I'm off.

Completely agree on that point.

As for the self aware AI... I can see it now... young children everyone, cheating a single answer off of a quiz, and then BAM! Kid guts all over the chalkboard.

So... hilarious.

I dunno. I kinda thought it was unfunny before Zero Punctuation. God forbid I display a negative emotion after ZP.

It was never meant to be "ha ha" funny, it was meant to be AWESOME! Have you even played splosion man?

We better not beat this revolution because you for one are screwed (and don't think the human survivors won't find you because they will)

OT; glad to see more and more games are taking an active approach against cheaters, the monster hunter's lot probably took it a bit too far

Yep exactly. I really hated that 'review' since it is an excellent game and one of the ones I'll always come back to.
And I'm looking forward to the contest week to see myself in 4000th-ish place... again.

Or as I like to call it, the robocalypse.
