Five two zero five nine

Gamerscores on 05.08.12

I’d title it “Eighty K” or “Eight zero zero zero zero” but I hope to get there myself some day. Anyway, here’s what both are scores looked like yesterday. Not bad work for a little over four months of gaming. Congrats to Homer for getting his score back to a number evenly divisible by five and so very round. Wave to the crowd.

Lost: The Candidate

Okay, really back in the flow now. Speculation abounds! (I seriously posted a lot of comments on this one.) I guess that’s what happens when you kill 2 main characters, 1 supporting character and lots more Widemore red-shirts. Plus, Kate got shot and Sawyer got bonked on the head. Lights out son! Seriously though, my thoughts over there are a bit more well stated than these. I’m just filling some space here in the hopes that you will click that link to go over there. And lastly, to get to this: bullet-hole Kate. Oh, what, you thought fish-food Sun? Meh…honestly, not much going on with the ladies in this one. But, that thing about the next Jacob not being a woman certainly seems to have come to pass.

Lost: The Last Recruit

I somehow got sucked back in to writing comments again because this marked two weeks in a row. I think maybe because they seem to be shaking the rust off and finally getting down to business. Took long enough. Or maybe it was just because writing that April Fools post kick started me in the ass. Whichever you like. And, since I am back, we’ll go with Illana; attorney-at-large. Va-va-voom!

Lost: Everybody Loves Hugo

Oh, so in that faux-Lost review that I posted over on The Ed Zone for April Fools, I included a cry for getting Hurley some love. Well, that wasn’t exactly on accident that I did that because I knew that this episode, title and all, was upcoming. I’m a planner.

April Fools aside, I hadn’t really been commenting lately on the episodes until this past week. As I explained both there, and in other comments on “The Package” (as well as my one fake post), I am over trying to figure it all out. At this point, it seems like it is better to just see what happens. We know they won’t answer everything, so why ask more questions. That’s not to say I won’t be shocked about some things that still happen, which is what prompted a post out of me this time, nor will I not be interested in what others ponder about island happenings. No, I am simply just sitting back and watching the show, and Ed’s merry band of Lostralians, without a care in the world. Kind of like Sayid.

That might not be a good thing.

That said,  since I did post something and because Illana met a horrible, unexpected end, she is my pick this week.

Lost: The Lighthouse

Thoughts are up on The Ed Zone. Not many thoughts this week. Not many women this week either. Game says: Kate. She was the only woman on, right? What? You think feral Claire was a woman? Hahahaha…

Lost but not forgotten

Or, really, what was once lost has now been found. I already had a post named Lost and Found from a previous year. And, I did forget that I am supposed to post links to my lengthy episode comments on The Ed Zone because I am not so much with the Telefizzled writing this year. So, since I remembered, here are links to the first three from this season:

  1. LAX
  2. What Kate Does
  3. The Substitute

For the game:

  1. Juliet (just pretend she’s not crushed under rubble; it is maybe her last hurrah)
  2. Kate. Obviously.
  3. Helen. Just kidding. Rose. Just kidding. Ilana. More like it.

Next week I will remember to post in a more timely fashion. Not that it matters. This is for me and not you.

Two seven four five four

That’s my end of year gamerscore. I set a goal of increasing it by 10k for the year and I went over that by almost 3500. I’ll just set another 10k increase for this year in favor of not overgaming because that takes away from other activities. Not really, it is just easier to go home after work and game than do other things. Like clean.

Of course that is nothing compared to what Ed did this year. Granted he picked up a gig reviewing games for Avault, but add to that playing with his Wii, not to mention everything else the busy man about the internets, business world, family world and homestead world does and the accomplishment is simply amazing. The fact that he more than tripled his goal really is impressive to me even if you don’t get it. Well done sir!

Two two nine nine nine

Thus stands my Gamerscore. A not so nice and round number no thanks to a couple Xbox Live Arcade games that give out weird number achievements like 4, 6 and 7, etc. Can we keep to 5 as the smallest and go in increments from there please?

Gamerscore on 09.05.08

Currently enjoying Lego Batman. Those that say it is not much of a leap from Lego Star Wars or Indiana Jones are very mistaken. I found a lot of innovation and change in this game. The puzzles are super easy, it starts at a 10+ age rating, but they are definitely different. The one knock is no Xbox Live co-op, especially with a co-op achievement in the mix. That means I am going to have to work two controllers at once to get it.

It appears I will have no trouble getting to my 24k goal for the end of the year. You know, unless both Xboxes RROD on me.

Carl on sports

Ever wanted to talk sports with Carl from Aqua Teen Hunger Force? Well… you can’t. But some dudes at The Sporting News can and they have clips on their blog. I am going to go check out his Week 2 NFL picks right now…
