Year in consumables: 2009 games

Halo 3: ODSTHere, finally, is the first post in my year-end wrap-up series that I call Year in Consumables. People like making lists and reading lists, particularly if you are a little OCD. Which I am.

I just pulled up my first post in the series from last year and it happened to be the Games one as well, so let’s just stick with the same order from last year: Games, Movies, Music. That might be a little OCD too.

I am going to have to break somewhat from history in that I am only going to rank five games this year. Mostly because I didn’t really play much. Well, much depending on your point of view. I do find it funny that on last years post I mention having not yet played Fallout 3 or Tomb Raider: Underworld. I still haven’t. I still plan on it. Really.

I will not break on the premise that this list is comprised of what I played the past year. Not that it dropped the pa... Continue reading »

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.

Flixd: twelve

This post combines watching for November and December and I only watched five movies during that time. Well, it was really six, but one was Star Trek which I took in at the theater over the summer. I didn’t write anything about in-theater movies yet, but just so you know, I’d rate this one with five heads.

The format remains the same, which is the new format from last time, just a sentence per head. Continue reading »

Three four zero two four

That is my year-end Gamerscore for 2009. I thought I’d be able to add on at least 10k like past years, but not as many games seemed to drop or something. Either that or achievements are becoming more ridiculous or multiplayer driven. I also went about four months of the year without playing pretty much anything, so that’s a part and maybe two PS3 games I played.

Gamerscore on 1.1.10

Either way, an increase of 6570 isn’t anything to sneeze at either I guess. Hopefully I can do at least 10k in 2010. You know… it being ’10 and all.

Gamerscore on 1.1.10

As for my friend Mistah Plow, he was able to continue to pull away from me and scored an increase of 11775 for the year with his game reviews, but also with having another 360 go kaput on him. I wonder if he can keep up that pace now that he owns a PS3 in addition to a Wii. Wii shall see…
