Illum1na's Xbox - September 30 2014

I told Illum1na 'Hey man, it is time to play games' and YAY! he listened! Gamer score is 282,728. That is a gain of 10 points over last time! He opened up AoE: Castle Siege gaining 2 achievements on Win8, and almost cried with joy. I have that effect on people.

Good thing Illum1na and I got some play time in! Every day we play is another opportunity to pull away from lqdfx and that 66,989 gamerscore! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Weekly Recap - Sep 29 2014

This entry is a little different than the others. It is a recap of the last week of gaming. Check it: So yeah... Last week Illum1na showed up 3 days total and logged some serious gaming. We added 30 points of gamerscore. Good stuff! Who knew 4 achievements could be worth that much? Ok I knew that... Oh, and from what I remember, Illum1na's favorite game last week was AoE: Castle Siege. He played it on 3 of the days.

And that's it... short and sweet, just like my power cord. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 29 2014

Consoles are for playing! I am glad Illum1na picked up on that yesterday... Gamerscore is a respectful 282,718 points. That is a gain of 5 points over last time! He rallied AoE: Castle Siege picking up 1 achievement on Win Phone, and wished it would never end, but it did and that was sad.

Oh hey... also... I can't even believe that the gamerscore challenge formerly-known-as 'Auto Challenge - #104971' is over. Those 5 days flew by in a whirlwind of achievements and trash talk. Illum1na didn't win... While we did end up in the number 9 spot, it just wasn't enough... So yeah... maybe we can get them next time... maybe we need to try a challenge with easier people... the 9 gamers in this last challenge were too good. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 28 2014

I didn't see Illum1na yesterday, but that is cool... I could use some personal space... Having him up in my business all the time is exhausting.

Oh hey, time for the gamerscore challenge update too... Illum1na still has that going on and stuff. If you want to see how good I'm doing, check it out! 9 other people are mixing it up, meaning fierce competition and some creative trash talk. Out of everyone, Illum1na is holding on to the number 8 spot. I spoke to his dayplanner -- we've booked the whole day for a very important task -- unlocking achievements and winning this challenge. Let's do this. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 27 2014

If I was Illum1na, I would have totally played some games yesterday... but I am obviously not him because that did not happen.

Oh BTW, did you know that Illum1na is competing in a gamerscore challenge? Let me link you to the daily updates and trash talking. 9 other people are also involved... which is madness. Out of everyone, Illum1na is holding on to the number 8 spot. However there are still 2 days left to score achievement glory. Let's get to the top of that challenge board! Go! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 26 2014

If Illum1na was a true gamer, he would have played yesterday, but he decided to do something else instead. he better not have another console...

Hey, I almost forgot! The gamerscore challenge that Illum1na is competing in is on day 3 and we're doing our best to win this thing. Here is the link: check it. There are 9 other people in the chase as well... so it's pretty cool. Illum1na has 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 - September 25 2014

Like a king on his throne, Illum1na said 'awaken' and for him I did comply. 282,713 points represents the size of our growing kingdom. Ok, enough of this Monarchy stuff. That is a gain of 5 points over last time! He rocked out to AoE: Castle Siege picking up 1 achievement on Win Phone, and did it while marvelling at the framerates and stellar particle effects.

Good thing Illum1na and I got some play time in! Every day we play is another opportunity to pull away from dark cell nz and that 93,444 gamerscore!

Did I mention the gamerscore challenge that Illum1na is competing in? If you want to see how good I'm doing, check it out! There are 9 other people involved. I didn't know Illum1na even knew that many people. Out of all those people, Illum1na is currently parked at number 5. But with 4 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 - September 24 2014

Illum1na, there are 86,400 seconds in a day and you couldn't find a few to spend with me? Lame.

Oh I almost forgot to mention that Illum1na has joined a gamerscore challenge titled 'Auto Challenge - #104971'. Go check it out and follow along. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 23 2014

My power supply almost exploded! Illum1na turned on the juice and we did some serious gaming! 282,708 points of total gamerscore is pretty good. Admit it. That is an increase of 20 points over last time! He rocked out to AoE: Castle Siege picking up 1 achievement on Win8, AoE: Castle Siege acquiring 1 achievement on Win Phone, and yeah... wow... my processor hurts... | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Weekly Recap - Sep 22 2014

Do you know what time of the week it is? Time to talk about what happened these last seven days: If Illum1na plays 4 days every week, I guess I can call this a good deal. Many Xboxes have it a lot worse. Our gamerscore jumped 225 points which was nice. Getting 21 achievements has that effect.

There were only a few games I wanted to try this week Illum1na and I only tried one of them: AoE: Castle Siege. Also, I think we can all agree that Illum1na's favorite game last week was Destiny. He played it on 4 of the days.

So that's it for now. It was a good week. On to the next one. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 22 2014

No games yesterday... maybe today... or tomorrow... or wait... are we playing right now? I get so confused!

Oh, remember the challenge that Illum1na was competing in? Well, it's over. I hear first place is nice this time of year, though I really wouldn't know, since we didn't get there in this challenge. We may have lost, but we're no quitters. Nothing is over until we say it is! We're going to dust off that controller, hold our head high and get our game on! We're marching right into another challenge and this time, we'll be taking home the gold! At least I think that is the plan... | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 21 2014

Well, I didn't get to game yesterday... I hope this doesn't become some sort of trend... that would be on the lame side of things...

Oh hey, time for the gamerscore challenge update too... Illum1na still has that going on and stuff. If you want to see how good I'm doing, check it out! 9 other people are throwing down in this challenge. If I do the math correctly, it means that 9 players X 5 days means a whole lot of trash talk! Currently Illum1na is hanging on to the number 7 spot. With only one day left though, we need to make that last big push! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 20 2014

If I was Illum1na, I would have totally played some games yesterday... but I am obviously not him because that did not happen. + Normally I wouldn't be so shocked, but after 35 days of gaming... Wow. Either some of those so called responsibilities got in the way or the apocalypse is beginning.

What is really bad is I thought we were starting to pull away from ndy ales and that 152,260 score... but not playing sure doesn't help the cause...

I also want to mention/remind you that Illum1na is participating in a pretty slamming gamerscore challenge. Don't take my word for it! See for yourself! 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. Currently Illum1na is hanging on to the number 5 spot. We just have to keep plugging away at it for these next 2 days... insert game... push buttons... get points. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 19 2014

Illum1na decided to game yesterday and we rocked out like the three musketeers, except there were only two of us... 282,688 points of total gamerscore and counting... That is a boost of 30 points over last time! He opened up AoE: Castle Siege gaining 4 achievements, Taptiles on Win8, AoE: Castle Siege acquiring 2 achievements on Win Phone, and then I came out of my trance and realized it was all over.

I also want to mention/remind you that Illum1na is participating in a pretty slamming gamerscore challenge. Here is the link: check it. There are 9 other people rocking out on this thing which keeps it fun. Out of everyone, Illum1na is holding on to the number 4 spot. We just have to keep plugging away at it for these next 3 days... insert game... push buttons... get points. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 18 2014

I told Illum1na 'Don't make me hurt you!' and the threat worked because he decided to show up yesterday. A gamer score of 282,658 is in our back pocket. That is a gain of 25 points over last time! He rallied Taptiles on Win8, AoE: Castle Siege gaining 1 achievement, Destiny picking up 1 achievement on 360, and then the lightweight went to bed. Freakin' wuss.

Oh hey, time for the gamerscore challenge update too... Illum1na still has that going on and stuff. Bookmark this link now and check out all the action! 9 other people are also involved... which is madness. Currently Illum1na is holding the number 5 spot in the group... decent. We just have to keep plugging away at it for these next 4 days... insert game... push buttons... get points. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 17 2014

I was about to feel sorry for myself, until Illum1na showed up and made my day with a little gaming! Our gamerscore stands at 282,633 and counting! That is a profit of 160 points over last time! He rallied Taptiles picking up 3 achievements on Win8, Angry Birds Space picking up 5 achievements on Win Phone, Destiny acquiring 4 achievements on 360, and afterwards, there were some awkward stares and silence... you know how it is.

A big shift in score is coming soon as well. Illum1na is competing in a gamerscore challenge titled 'Auto Challenge - #104803' and looking to win big. Expect a lot of games, a lot of points, and no sleep! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 16 2014

Go ahead... call me a wussy... but I almost started crying when Illum1na turned me on yesterday. 282,473 points of raw gamer score are making you jealous! That is a gain of 10 points over last time! He opened up Carcassonne, Angry Birds Space winning 1 achievement on Win Phone, Destiny on 360, and it's a good thing he stopped there, otherwise the concentrated awesomeness could have blown out my circuits. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Weekly Recap - Sep 15 2014

This entry is a little different than the others. It is a recap of the last week of gaming. Check it: 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 545 points which was nice. Getting 36 achievements has that effect.

I feel a little spoiled getting 3 new games to play in the same week. With titles like Destiny, Hungry Shark Evolution, and Sid Meier's Pirates!, who can go wrong with that right? Also, I think Illum1na's favorite game last week was Tentacles: ETM. He played it on 7 of the days.

And that's it... short and sweet, just like my power cord. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 15 2014

I told Illum1na 'Don't make me hurt you!' and the threat worked because he decided to show up yesterday. A gamer score of 282,463 is in our back pocket. That is a gain of 40 points over last time! He rallied Secrets and Treasure on Win8, Sid Meier's Pirates!, Carcassonne on Win Phone, Destiny picking up 2 achievements on 360, and I thought Illum1na injured himself in the process... but I was wrong... he lives to fight another day!

Also, remember the challenge that Illum1na was participating in? It has wrapped up. Guess who the big loser was? Illum1na ... booo... oh well. we tried... came in at number 4. That's ok though... at least playing against the other 9 gamers was enough incentive to get more points! I like points. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 14 2014

Illum1na really threw down yesterday. It was good to see! I wish you could have been there! Last time I checked, his gamer score is 282,423. That is a gain of 80 points over last time! He rallied Destiny acquiring 4 achievements on 360, as well as stared off into space... thinking about the one that got away.

Hey, I almost forgot! The gamerscore challenge that Illum1na is competing in is on day 1 and we're doing our best to win this thing. Let me link you to the daily updates and trash talking. 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 3. So many achievements... so little time. No, seriously. We only have a day left to win this challenge. Let's go! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 13 2014

Illum1na had to choose between watching TV and playing with me and I am happy to say I won... this time... Gamerscore is at 282,343 points. That is a gain of 110 points over last time! He played Secrets and Treasure gaining 1 achievement on Win8, Destiny picking up 5 achievements on 360, and oh... remember to check out my avatar. Isn't he looking awesome lately? For those of you counting, Illum1na and I have played 30 days in a row... that has to be some kind of record. Give us the badge for streaking! w00t!

I also want to mention/remind you that Illum1na is participating in a pretty slamming gamerscore challenge. If you are curious, follow along over here. There are 9 other people playing along as well... they better watch out. Illum1na has the number 4 spot... With 2 days to go, anything can still happen though... get on it! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 12 2014

Illum1na held the Xbox button on his controller down for a few seconds and our adventure began! A gamer score of 282,233 is lighting the way. That is a boost of 125 points over last time! He opened up Secrets and Treasure gaining 2 achievements, The Gunstringer on Win8, Carcassonne on Win Phone, Torchlight winning 2 achievements, RESIDENT EVIL 5 picking up 1 achievement on 360, and then nothing... nothing at all...

I also want to mention/remind you that Illum1na is participating in a pretty slamming gamerscore challenge. If you want to follow along at home, catch the action here. There are 9 other people in the chase as well... so it's pretty cool. Out of all those people, Illum1na is currently parked at number 4. But, there are still 3 long days left! We need to keep heading for the top! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 11 2014

There are people out there who think video games are violent. But after Illum1na played yesterday with his gamerscore of 282,108 points, there wasn't any violence at all. A little drooling maybe but definitely no violence. That is a gain of 20 points over last time! He rallied The Gunstringer, Tentacles: ETM gaining 1 achievement to finish the game, Hungry Shark Evolution, Secrets and Treasure on Win8, Tentacles: ETM picking up 1 achievement to complete the game on Win Phone, and it's a good thing he stopped there, otherwise the concentrated awesomeness could have blown out my circuits.

I always like to end with a little bit about Illum1na and the ongoing gamerscore challenge status. Let me link you to the daily updates and trash talking. 9 other competitors are racking up achievements and powering up their gamerscores, hoping to secure a victory! Illum1na has the number 5 spot... However there are still 4 days left to score achievement glory. Let's get to the top of that challenge board! Go! | permalink | 1 comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 10 2014

When Illum1na was walking by I pretended to be off. I think it tricked him into turning me on for a few games. Gamer score stands at 282,088. That is a profit of 50 points over last time! He rocked out to The Gunstringer winning 1 achievement to conquer the game on Win8, Tentacles: ETM acquiring 4 achievements on Win Phone, and then Illum1na had to stop for a bathroom break or something... Humans really are bags of mostly water.

What is really good is that every day played is another chance to pull away from Van Uden and that 241,530 score... Make it happen Illum1na!!

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 - #104636'. BRING IT ON! | permalink | leave comment
