I somehow controlled myself and actually waited for the 19th back in 2012 when this game was released.

Sad that the sequel has never seen release on XBLA. It's on PSN :(

This can be super glitchy (perhaps a time zone issue?) so you might want to try it at various times today (18th), tomorrow, and the day after.

Yeah, this glitched for me, I did it last year, and the day afterward. I will try it today and tomorrow, hopefully it wont glitch.

I got this a while back when it was on sale but never started it. I suppose this would be a good time to begin.

Set up a reminder myself, but it doesn't hurt to know that it's been a bit screwy with people.

It's not screwy nor is it glitched, you just need to calculate the correct time to unlock it since it's based on GMT, not your local time. A lot of people don't know this.

I created a thread a few months ago on XBA about this about needing to unlock it at different times around the world. Take a look at it if you want to make sure you can unlock it and between what times.

You need to know what time it is in GMT at your location. I'm on the East Coast of the US, so I'm GMT -4 and I can unlock it between 6/18 at 8pm and 6/19 at 8pm.

Go to http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/ to see what city/country your GMT is.

For pointers, Hawaii is GMT -10 and Japan is GMT +10. London is GMT +0.

Hope this helps!

@LuminaLightning

Honestly, no.

It's good for 30 minutes every 6 months but really nothing special.

It's cool if you want to grab a few measly cheesemints doe

Lol too hood for me...but i am assuming cheesemints are achievements* although the "every 6 months" bit still puzzles me...
Signature? Sure, someone hand me a pen please.

It's more a piece of history than anything. It's a glorified quicktime event that will keep you occupied for maybe an hour, tops, assuming you're going for achievements. Great in the early 80s, hasn't aged well. I wouldn't recommend it for $10.

Not my favorite game, either, but I'd kill for an XBLA port of Space Ace! I could recite the movelist from memory when I was a kid.

Good news is this achievement unlocked straight away for me. Didn't even have to finish a game.

@bLaKgRaVy: Thank you for the clarification. I just loaded it up and got the achievement. Currently it is still 6/18 my time (GMT -4), but it it 6/19 @GMT.

@LuminaLightning: I played this game in the arcade when it first came out. I liked it quite a bit back then. So, for nostalgia sake, it is worth playing to me. If you didn't play it back it the day, and I imagine that most of today's gamers are too young for that, then it probably isn't worth playing.
