The decline in gaming continued like a snowball turning into an avalanche. Or something like that. Can a snowball really become an avalanche? I say no. It could become the really big bottom of a snowman. What?
So, there are many reasons why there hasn’t been much gaming. Most good. One bad, and that is there are no games released during the middle of the year anymore. This is when I actually have time to play because there’s no television to watch. The push to release for the holidays, and shortly after due to delays, has now skewed the schedule further. Therefore my goal is to save/space out games so I have them to play during the warmer months. When I don’t want to be roasting on a beach or whatever. I’m Irish. I burn easy. Regardless of how well the sunblock may have been applied, you always miss a spot. What?
Math Time. Last year started with 57839 and ends with 59779. That’s a... Continue reading »
Well, another year bites the dust. Which is good because we all didn’t bite the dust. Take that Mayans! (Or at least those fools that believed they might be right.)
Anyway, that’s my score to start this year. Or end last year. Whatever.
The math indicates I increased by 6930 on the year and that is a negative delta from the previous year. A lot of that had to do with the few new games I played in 2012. More on that in a later post. (My avatar gives you a hint at which game I will choose as number one for the year.)
Meanwhile, Mister Plow continues to accelerate further away with an increase of 10462 but also with a negative delta.
Lastly, I am adding Mookie this year. I don’t know where he started from... Continue reading »
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.
So, this is my first post of the year and my first post in a year. It is just my annual tally of Gamerscores for my own nerd purposes. Example, tracking my inadequacy as it relates to Mistah Plow. This year also saw another change to the Xbox web site, which is a nice one, but the concept of gamer cards is pretty much gone now. So, I decided to use my iPhone to grab a couple screen caps using the Xbox Live app as a source. Too bad the format cannot be the same for your own vs. a friends, but they are close.
So, I increased by 8455 over the year and Plow by 12438. I beat my delta from last year by 25 and Plow didn’t quite match his, but he also lost another Xbox to RRoD and has been playing more PS3 games for Avault, so understandable there.
Anyway, see you next year…
So stands my Gamerscore to start 2011 (or end 2010). You’d think with the lack of activity around these parts, it was due to excessive gaming or even something better, but sadly that is not the case.
Anyway, an increase of 8430 over last year is better than the same delta from a year ago. Still, not quite back to at least 10k plus.
As for Mr. Plow, the opposite is true. His increase of 16240 is better than last year’s mark. Of course, he does review games for a web site, so that has something to do with it.
I remember a few years ago when I was actually ahead of him. Good times.
(By the way, I like the new Xbox.com site, but hate the look of gamer cards, which aren’t really cards anymore. Progress!)
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.
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.
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…
Welcome to the summer, or rather, the “blog days of summer” as I like to call them, where not a whole lot of blogging happens! When it does, you don’t care. You’ll understand more when you read my next Flixd post. It won’t be pretty for almost all of you. I do have some other stuff in mind for you coming soon though. Kind of half year check-ins on the consumables idea.
Anyway, I figured I’d toss this up to put that first bit of info out, but also because Ed hit a number that needed capturing for eternity on the internets.
So, these aren’t the baseball kind of K cards (which you’d normally associate with summer), but rather, those that celebrate Xbox Live Gamerscore milestones. But, they just changed their site design and these don’t look like cards anymore; at least the parts that kept from the screen cap don’t. The new “cards” are quite large as they also include a full image of your avatar. Anyway, I cropped them a lot to show just the vital info.

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!
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?
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.
