Illum1na's Xbox - October 31 2014

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 283,538. He opened up Defiance, Zoo Tycoon Friends, Destiny on 360, and then... yeah... that was awesome...

Oh BTW, did you know that Illum1na is competing in a gamerscore challenge? Bookmark this link now and check out all the action! There are 9 other people playing along as well... they better watch out. Out of everyone, Illum1na is holding on to the number 6 spot. But with 3 days left and plenty of achievements out there, we've got this one in the bag. Let's make it happen. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - October 30 2014

There are people out there who think video games are violent. But after Illum1na played yesterday with his gamerscore of 283,538 points, there wasn't any violence at all. A little drooling maybe but definitely no violence. That is an increase of 20 points over last time! He rallied Zoo Tycoon Friends picking up 1 achievement on Win Phone, Zoo Tycoon Friends winning 1 achievement on 360, and loved every minute of it in high definition glory!

Good thing Illum1na and I got some play time in! Every day we play is another opportunity to pull away from porschephiliac and that 176,017 gamerscore!

Oh, guess what? Our gamerscore challenge is going strong... If you are curious, follow along over here. There are 9 other people playing along as well... they better watch out. Currently Illum1na is holding the number 4 spot in the group... decent. But, there are still 4 long days left! We need to keep heading for the top! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na showed up yesterday and we were like a superhero team together. I make a great sidekick! Gamerscore stands at 283,518. Up up and away right? That is a profit of 25 points over last time! He played Treasure Hunt winning 1 achievement on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends gaining 1 achievement on Win Phone, Zoo Tycoon Friends acquiring 1 achievement on 360, and then... oh wait... no and then!!

Oh I almost forgot to mention that Illum1na has joined a gamerscore challenge titled 'Auto Challenge - #105816'. Go check it out and follow along. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Weekly Recap - Oct 27 2014

Are you ready for a recap? I know I am! Giddyup: Not two, not five, but SEVEN days of gaming in a row! Last week was as solid as it gets when it comes to Illum1na throwing down with the games. Our gamerscore jumped 250 points which was nice. Getting 20 achievements has that effect. Also, according to the records, 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

Pick it, pack it fire it up, come along, lets get Illum1na's gaming on! Gamer score is 283,493. That is a boost of 120 points over last time! He rallied Treasure Hunt acquiring an amazing 7 achievements, Microsoft Jigsaw, Microsoft Minesweeper gaining 2 achievements on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends winning 1 achievement on Win Phone, Zoo Tycoon Friends gaining 1 achievement on 360, and loved every minute of it in high definition glory!

Oh hey... also... I can't even believe that the gamerscore challenge formerly-known-as 'Auto Challenge - #105646' is over. Those 5 days flew by in a whirlwind of achievements and trash talk. Unfortunately, we came up short, ending up in the number 5 spot. So, no sense crying over this one... climb back on the horse Illum1na... giddy-up... | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - October 23 2014

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 283,273 gamerscore. He played Carcassonne on Win Phone, Zoo Tycoon Friends on 360, and then nothing... nothing at all...

And..... guess what? I will reveal the latest gamerscore challenge status to you as a matter of public record. Here is the link: check it.

Have you ever wondered what it was like to play games with someone who has a gamerscore of 283,273? Well guess what... you will never know, and I do! Illum1na is mine! All mine! No touchy! That is an increase of 30 points over last time! He opened up Microsoft Minesweeper acquiring 2 achievements on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends on 360, and then he tried to watch TV, but I killed the power... If I can't have him, no one can.

Oh, also... we're probably going to see a lot more of Illum1na over the next few days as well. It is because he is in a gamerscore challenge titled 'Auto Challenge - #105646'. BRING IT ON! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Weekly Recap - Oct 20 2014

My eye! It burns! A weekly recap is all that can save me! Here goes: Not two, not five, but SEVEN days of gaming in a row! Last week was as solid as it gets when it comes to Illum1na throwing down with the games. Our gamerscore saw a 215 point boost which is good. I guess that is what completing 22 achievements can do!

I was feeling bored last week and convinced Illum1na to try a new game: Zoo Tycoon Friends. It was a lot cooler than I thought it would be. Also, by my expert calculations, Illum1na's favorite game last week was Zoo Tycoon Friends. He played it on 7 of the days.

And that is the news for now... Check back next week... same bat time, same bat channel... | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - October 20 2014

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 283,243 points and on the rise. That is a boost of 70 points over last time! He played Zoo Tycoon Friends winning 2 achievements on Win Phone, Zoo Tycoon Friends picking up 2 achievements, Destiny winning 1 achievement on 360, and then I came out of my trance and realized it was all over.

Good thing Illum1na and I got some play time in! Every day we play is another opportunity to pull away from jaod and that 64,885 gamerscore!

Illum1na also wrapped up a gamerscore challenge today. Remember? Illum1na didn't manage to get the win... but I guess number 3 is better than number LAST!!... wait... maybe we are last? How many people are in this thing? Can I count? Lucky for us, we can jump right into another challenge and compete for a bigger win. Plus, it just means more time spent on our favorite games and a bigger gamerscore! I guess we won something after all! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - October 19 2014

I heard someone tell Illum1na to go play outside and he was like 'screw that!' so we did some gaming. Our gamerscore is currently 283,173 points. He rallied Microsoft Solitaire on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends on 360, and loved every minute of it in high definition glory!

Illum1na's Weekly Recap - Oct 13 2014

It is hard to believe another week has passed. Here is the recap: Illum1na played 4 days last week... pretty solid I guess... I'm not feeling that picky lately. It was productive... Gamerscore went up 230 points so I am happy. Yay for 18 achievements! w00t!

Out of all the possible new games we could have tried this last week, Illum1na and I only tried one of them: Chariot. Pretty fun I guess... Oh, and from what I remember, Illum1na's favorite game last week was AoE: Castle Siege. He played it on 4 of the days.

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