    Another day, another blog. According to futiles, this marks 9 days in a row.

    Got another small bit of time in with Ascend before heading out to job #2. I'm 5 levels away from what looks like my last ascension. If not, I think it'll be 19? I don't know. I'll find out tonight to say the least.

    Not much else going on. Watching the Auburn game tonight. Might tune into the NFL, probably not. Also have a meeting with some siding people to look at our chimney. It's been leaking when it rains sideways. Have to see what we can do about that.

    How's everyone enjoying Destiny?

    Good morning self. Or the small handful of people that read this. Not sure what traffic looks like here. I do know I like it better than some other sites.

    Got a few more levels done in Ascend. I think I get 3-4 levels per 30 minute EXP boost. Managed to buy a 30 minute Gear Protect buff as well. Which is nice cause for 10k I can cover everything for 30 minutes vs spend 20+ to repair JUST MY WEAPON. Awful. Oh well. The problems with having Epic gear.

    Slowly chipping away at PQ2 while I let me gear repair in the forge in Ascend. Man this game is just boring anymore. I think I'm in the last section of the game, but I have no clue how much I have to go still.

    When away from home I'm making progress in Final Fantasy 1 on the phone. I'm about to transform my party, then make a push for end game. Got to do a touch of grinding to reach 5k monsters killed.

    That's it for now. Work both jobs today, so not much other than trying to keep a streak alive.

    Another day, another couple of levels in Ascend. Slowing down since I kind of screwed myself with my cash flow in that game. Can only afford to do one 30 minute run of double xp before my weapon breaks out. It costs too damn much to repair at this point. Need to save up for the gear protect boost as well. Should be 10 levels at this point. If not, then like 24 or 25.

    Other than that, still bouncing around from different games when not grinding Ascend. nothing seems to be holding me at this point. No idea why. I am blaming Dark Souls.

    Got a little bit of gaming in in the morning while watching Man U completely destroy QPR. TBH, it was expected. Oh well.

    Ascended again, I think this is my last run before finishing the game. I hope. 13 levels to go. If not, then 23 cause I'll have to level out to the next ascension cap before being able to Transcend.

    Puzzle Quest 2 is boring. I dunno, it just doesn't have the same draw/appeal as the first one.

    Started playing through MTG 2014. The sealed deck option is pretty cool. Haven't done the regular campaign cause there's like 17 tutorial stages.

    Spent most of the day out and about. The Trucks by the Tracks thing was ok. CK got lobstered in the sun. Spent the majority of the afternoon with some friends, Dren included, sort of watching football at World of Beer. Greatest place on earth.

    Not sure what's on board for today. Supposed to have some more thunderstorms roll through in the evening. Might watch some football, might binge on more Simpsons. Who knows.

    Spent almost the whole day out of town yesterday. Gave me some time to catch up on WP games. Half way complete on Little Acorns at this point. Having to play every level 2-3 times really drags this game out.

    Seem to be in some sort of gaming ADD as of late. Can't really find something to keep my attention for very long.

    Also, what's the deal with old.....er people and the radio in cars? Either not turning it on, or once you leave your local broadcast area turning it off completely.... If you want to make anything 10x more insufferable, do it in silence.

    Watching my Queen's Park Rangers play Man U this morning, then heading out to Railroad Park to meet up with some friends for lunch. One of those being The Dren!

    Had a wicked storm blow through yesterday so I didn't do as much grinding in Ascend as I wanted. I have about 15ish levels to go(maybe!) before it's over.

    So due to that storm, we spent the evening curled up on the couch watching Orgazmo. Man that movie still cracks me up.

    Heading out to ATL for a birthday lunch. Not sure when we will be back. Hit me up if you want to play something, provided you can pry yourselves away from the XBone. How is destiny treating you? Did you make sure to find the secret vendor who only has shop set up on the weekend to spend your special coins? No? Go find him. He looks like the vendor from Resident Evil 4. Pretty cool homage.

    Spent a few hours in Ascend again last night. Seem to be making some good progress at a reasonable clip. Went up 15 levels total, with an ascension in there. I have about 21 levels across 2 ascensions to go, I think. I don't know if I have to ascend a 9th time, or if my 8th will be the Transcension. None of the guides out there really say how it works.

    Either way, at this rate I should have the game done next week. I think I'm supposed to get into cleaning up Bulletstorm with a friend, since I have all the coop stuff left to do. Will end up doing all of Monaco by myself with 2 controllers since nobody wants to play that game, and I was suckered into trying it out with a few other people who opted not to continue playing, or unlocking an achievement.... jerks.

    So if anyone else out there wants to work on Ascend, find me at the ring of bones, I'll throw some curses for more creatures and some gear protect boosts your way.

    Was pretty quiet last night at the GS. Even more so based on the fact that 24 hours earlier one of the most anticipated games of the year launched. At least, a socially acceptable GotY and not some serial release with zombies.

    So with it being rather dead I managed to get some Mirror's Edge time in on my phone. Not looking forward to the time trials.

    Played Ascend for a brief minute before work as well. Ascended my 5th time. 3 more to go. Oh, and about 39 more levels to grind out in that process. maybe 2-3 weeks to get that done, depending on how much I hate myself in one sitting.

    In semi non-gaming news, we might be meeting up with The Dren this weekend. Hopefully that pans out. Missed having him at this past Achievement Fest.



    Man I love the quiet over here. Instead of the legions of dump trucks spreading trash all over the place like some other sites.... I love seeing dozens of zero comment threads of duplicating information between multiple systems sprout up. Have fun with that.

  9. dacoto Says... 9/10/2014 7:27:12 AM PST

    *Crickets*

    Such a nice and quiet landscape here. I like not seeing dozens upon dozens of other peoples' work copy/pasted into forum threads.

    Tried to go back to Ascend: Hand of Kul since the servers are shutting down. managed to get the latest game-killing patch and still launch. I'm not sure exactly how far away I am from the last achievement. I think I'm half way through the Ascensions I need to finish. Hit lv 39. will ascend at lv 40. Think I'll need to get up to around 55 or 60 for the last one I need.

    Grinding is pretty boring. Although I did run into smrnov while doing so. "Cursed" him with some extra mobs to fight.

    Not much on the schedule tonight. Have to work both jobs, so probably just find a quick achievement to pop to keep the latest streak alive.

    Another AchievementFest is in the books, back home now. Had an awesome time as always, even though I didn't really do a whole lot of gaming this time around. I think I had the most fun just playing Cards Against Humanity with the gang the last night, whether because we were all so tired or whatever, but laughing until we were all in tears. Was great just to get out of town and see everyone; some for the first time, as well as the "regulars". A few couldn't make it this year for various reasons, but hopefully we'll see them back next year.

    Both world records fell for most gamerscore in a 24hr period, with the group beating our own record and setting a new standard, as well as hobbswmpd setting a new solo record. Took me 13 minutes to 1k NHL2K6 this time around, guess I'm slowing down a little.

    Anyone interested can check out the links at the bottom of the page (hyperlinks seem to be breaking the blog). Even had one of the news anchors jump in and take part in the group attempt.

    Too tired to think at this point, so I'll leave it at that for now. Thanks for a great time everybody, thanks to Zack and Ebash for hosting again, already looking forward to next year!

    This is really good stuff... the more we play, the more chances we have to leave lady death 13 in the dust. Call me crazy, but a 186,492 point cushion is not nearly enough for me...

    Can this fat kid do 10K

    First off, the "108" is on an indefinite hold. I'll possibly find some time to get back to them, so they'll remain in my to-do list for awhile.

    The challenge I'm currently contemplating is if I can manage a 10k increase in gamerscore in 1 week. With Achievement Fest coming up, this would be the best opportunity I'll have to try. The problem is coming up with the games and achievements to do it with. Basically, if any quick, easy game exists, I've already done it. Also working against me would be not taking any time off work to play games as well as the in-laws visiting the week of the planned attempt.

    From the games I have, I see the potential for a couple thousand before flying out to Indiana for AF14. Once there, I already have some plans to knock out a few quick Xbone games that have recently come out. I'm not looking for completions, so getting a full 1k in these games is not necessary. Here's the early planned list, suggestions are welcome but I don't plan to go buy a bunch of games to do this. The other problem is the Kinect heavy games, meaning rearranging the living room and the getting tired out after too much Kinect.

    Pre-AF
    Chipwrecked - 700-800
    Hulk Hogan's Main Event - 500-700 conservatively
    Once Upon a Monster - I have ~850 left in this that most could be gotte
    Peggle 2 - 150 queued for all Jimmy's objectives
    Brink - 100 from King of the World

    also possibly looking into some random stuff in some other games. If I could get 3000 before heading to AF I'd be on a good start

    At AF
    Contrast (xbox 1)
    SSSP
    Another World (xbox 1)
    Any quick JP-EU game I can get through quickly, would prefer these be completions since I don't own those consoles and would not get back to them again



    Any suggestions on quick/large achievements I could knock out?
