I had this all written up, but Bitmob ate it and the auto-save didn't work. Rage! So, this is going to be fast and messy — like your mother. That is what we do on the High Score Challenge. Talk trash, be mean, and try to get the best score in a game over the course of a week.
I'm sorry, but this week's game requires the spending of money — unless you already own it. It was inevitable. Some of the best leader board chasing games are on Xbox Live Arcade and PSN and they can be spendy.
Also, be sure to check out The Kongregate Mob.

Word Challenge Results
So, this week was tainted by the cheating cheater that is James DeRosa. To be fair, he thought everyone else was cheating. Then when we told him you could use the keyboard — and didn't have to use the mouse to write out words — he realized that he was the keyword in #beaDICKmode.
Oh well, thankfully, Andrew J Hiscock swears he didn't cheat and scored over 50k. Insane!
