Illum1na's Weekly Recap - Jan 12 2015

This entry is a little different than the others. It is a recap of the last week of gaming. Check it: You can't ask for a better week than when Illum1na shows up to play Seven days in a row!! I feel like i'm bragging when I say our score climbed 795 points last week... insanity! I guess that is what completing 71 achievements can do!

If I had a DOLLAR for every new game I played during the week, I would have 3 bucks! w00t! I can now add Asphalt 8: Airborne, Kingdoms and Lords, and Rabbids Go Phone to my collection... unless they were rentals or demos or betas. I couldn't tell. Oh, and from what I remember, Illum1na's favorite game last week was Zoo Tycoon Friends. He played it on 7 of the days.

Another week finished... staring down the barrel of another one. Check back to find out what happens! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - January 12 2015

Like I always tell Illum1na, gaming is like money... the more the better! So fill up my pockets baby! All that matters is that our gamerscore is 287,983 points and on the rise. That is a gain of 80 points over last time! He played Zoo Tycoon Friends, Asphalt 8: Airborne gaining 1 achievement, Total Conquest acquiring an amazing 7 achievements on 360, and... hmmm... maybe that was all... it felt like we played more games.

Oh hey... also... I can't even believe that the gamerscore challenge formerly-known-as 'Auto Challenge - #107519' is over. Those 5 days flew by in a whirlwind of achievements and trash talk. Illum1na didn't manage to get enough points to win... we had to settle for a comfortable spot at number 3. Someone once said, 'Winning isn't everything.' Although, losing isn't anything. Illum1na, I want you to think about this while you go sign us up for another challenge. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - January 11 2015

You would think I had died and gone to heaven when Illum1na showed up to play. Gamer score stands at 287,903. That is a profit of 30 points over last time! He played Zoo Tycoon Friends, Total Conquest winning 4 achievements on 360, and loved every minute of it in high definition glory!

Oh BTW, did you know that Illum1na is competing in a gamerscore challenge? Check out the progress right now! There are 9 other people playing along as well... they better watch out. Current rank out of everyone is Number one though. So there... I've made a wager with the 9 other Xboxes in the Challenge -- let's not blow this thing... | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - January 10 2015

When you want to get on the cover of the gaming magazines, you have to play every day! I keep telling Illum1na that as motivation... yesterday it worked! We went for a spin... played some games... ended with a score of 287,873. That is an increase of 275 points over last time! He rallied Kingdoms and Lords gaining 1 achievement on Win8, Rabbids Go Phone gaining an amazing 20 achievements to finish the game, Carcassonne on Win Phone, Total Conquest gaining an amazing 7 achievements, Zoo Tycoon Friends on 360, and then the lightweight went to bed. Freakin' wuss.

Good thing Illum1na and I got some play time in! Every day we play is another opportunity to pull away from ninjah monkey and that 109,782 gamerscore!

Oh hey, time for the gamerscore challenge update too... Illum1na still has that going on and stuff. Don't take my word for it! See for yourself! There are 9 other people rocking out on this thing which keeps it fun. Currently, Illum1na has been using every power-up in his achievement-gaining arsenal, rocking the lead with authority! We just have to keep it up... keep playing the game... keep getting the points. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - January 9 2015

Illum1na held the Xbox button on his controller down for a few seconds and our adventure began! A gamer score of 287,598 is lighting the way. That is a profit of 295 points over last time! He rallied Shuffle Party acquiring 2 achievements to conquer the game, Kingdoms and Lords gaining 5 achievements on Win8, BattleWagon gaining an amazing 15 achievements to finish the game on Win Phone, Zoo Tycoon Friends on 360, and Illum1na won't admit this, but I had to force him to stop.

Oh BTW, did you know that Illum1na is competing in a gamerscore challenge? Check out the progress right now! 9 other people are mixing it up, meaning fierce competition and some creative trash talk. Currently, Illum1na is setting the pace, though, jumping into the lead and hoping to hold on through the end of the challenge. We just have to keep it up... keep playing the game... keep getting the points. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - January 8 2015

Have you ever wondered what it was like to play games with someone who has a gamerscore of 287,303? Well guess what... you will never know, and I do! Illum1na is mine! All mine! No touchy!

He opened up Treasure Hunt gaining 1 achievement to finish the game, Shuffle Party, Hungry Shark Evolution gaining 1 achievement on Win8, BattleWagon winning 3 achievements on Win Phone, Zoo Tycoon Friends, Microsoft Bingo winning 1 achievement on 360, and then... oh wait... no and then!!

And..... guess what? I will reveal the latest gamerscore challenge status to you as a matter of public record. If you want to follow along at home, catch the action here. If I was you, I'd subscribe to the trash talk RSS feed for this one - 9 other competitors are battling with their skills and egos. Out of all those people, Illum1na is currently parked at number 4. But, there are still 4 long days left! We need to keep heading for the top! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - January 7 2015

I heard someone tell Illum1na to go play outside and he was like 'screw that!' so we did some gaming. Our gamerscore is currently 287,243 points. That is an increase of 40 points over last time! He played Order & Chaos acquiring 1 achievement to master the game on Win Phone, Zoo Tycoon Friends, Order & Chaos Online acquiring 1 achievement to master the game on 360, and then I basked in the warm glow of post gaming. Mmmm warm...

Also, I fully expect to become one happy 360 as Illum1na is set to begin a gamerscore challenge aptly titled 'Auto Challenge - #107519' today. | permalink | leave comment

I heard someone tell Illum1na to go play outside and he was like 'screw that!' so we did some gaming. Our gamerscore is currently 287,203 points. That is an increase of 15 points over last time! He played Zoo Tycoon Friends, Despicable Me winning 1 achievement, Order & Chaos Online on 360, and after we were done, Illum1na hugged me with his eyes.

Illum1na's Weekly Recap - Jan 5 2015

It is that time of the week. I got your weekly recap right here: Oh man are my cores just rocking... Illum1na played seven days last week! SEVEN! That is a NUMBER SEVEN followed by NO ZEROS! HOT! It was productive... Gamerscore went up 245 points so I am happy. Yay for 21 achievements! w00t!

For the record, we only played one new game this last week. It was Total Conquest. I was hoping for a few more, but I guess not everyone is made out of money! Also, according to the records, Illum1na's favorite game last week was Zoo Tycoon Friends. He played it on 7 of the days.

So that's it. Thanks for reading. PM us for a game or something. We get lonely. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - January 5 2015

Illum1na must have heard my calling... I was practically startled when his greasy finger pounded my power button. I mean come on... be a little gentle... I am fragile. Just some helpful advice for someone with a 287,188 gamerscore. That is a gain of 60 points over last time! He rallied Shuffle Party on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends, Order & Chaos Online, Despicable Me acquiring an amazing 7 achievements on 360, and think of all the things we learned! Ha... look at me still typing this blog entry when there is gaming to do! Let's keep it up Illum1na!

Good thing Illum1na and I got some play time in! Every day we play is another opportunity to pull away from syndelin and that 27,272 gamerscore!

Also, remember the challenge that Illum1na was participating in? It has wrapped up. We scraped and clawed our way through a bunch of achievements, but fell shy of the lead, landing at number 7. Someone once said, 'Winning isn't everything.' Although, losing isn't anything. Illum1na, I want you to think about this while you go sign us up for another challenge. | permalink | leave comment

Consoles are for playing! I am glad Illum1na picked up on that yesterday... Gamerscore is a respectful 287,128 points. That is a profit of 40 points over last time!
