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

Illum1na's Xbox - September 9 2014

Illum1na is making me proud and his opponents jealous... even if they are bots or mindless AI sometimes! Check out the 282,038 gamer score! That is a gain of 120 points over last time! We have now entered the 282,000 GS club! He opened up Hungry Shark Evolution, Tentacles: ETM acquiring an amazing 8 achievements on Win8, Tentacles: ETM winning 4 achievements on Win Phone, as well as checked out what was new in the live marketplace. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Weekly Recap - Sep 8 2014

Someone ask for a weekly recap? Even if you didn't, here it is: Illum1na played 5 days last week... pretty solid I guess... I'm not feeling that picky lately. Our gamerscore saw a 140 point boost which is good. I guess that is what completing 14 achievements can do!

Out of all the possible new games we could have tried this last week, Illum1na and I only tried one of them: Warframe®. Pretty fun I guess... Also, I think Illum1na's favorite game last week was The Gunstringer. He played it on 5 of the days.

So there you have it... Check back next week for another report from yours truly. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 8 2014

I thought Illum1na just wanted to listen to music or watch a DVD. Turns out he was there to game. With a gamer score of 281,918, I should have known that was the case. That is an increase of 90 points over last time! He played Tentacles: ETM acquiring 1 achievement on Win8, Tentacles: ETM picking up an amazing 8 achievements on Win Phone, and I think there was some random Live Marketplace browsing, but I wasn't paying attention.

Illum1na also wrapped up a gamerscore challenge today. Remember? We scraped and clawed our way through a bunch of achievements, but fell shy of the lead, landing at number 8. 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 7 2014

Have you ever wondered what it was like to play games with someone who has a gamerscore of 281,828? Well guess what... you will never know, and I do! Illum1na is mine! All mine! No touchy! He opened up Xbox Video on X1, and did it while drooling over my awesome graphics and sound. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - September 4 2014

Illum1na rocked out with 281,818 points. He played The Gunstringer on Win8, and then he had to stop because we both couldn't take it anymore... we were spent.

Hey, I almost forgot! The gamerscore challenge that Illum1na is competing in is on day 4 and we're doing our best to win this thing. 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. Out of everyone, Illum1na is holding on to the number 8 spot. 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 Weekly Recap - Sep 1 2014

My eye! It burns! A weekly recap is all that can save me! Here goes: You can't ask for a better week than when Illum1na shows up to play Seven days in a row!! It was productive... Gamerscore went up 560 points so I am happy. Yay for 41 achievements! w00t!

I was also pretty happy about the 2 new games this last week. They were (in no particular order) Grand Theft Auto V, and Xbox Video. I liked them. I think Illum1na did too. Also, according to the records, Illum1na's favorite game last week was Microsoft Solitaire. 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 1 2014

Have you ever wondered what it was like to play games with someone who has a gamerscore of 281,768? Well guess what... you will never know, and I do! Illum1na is mine! All mine! No touchy! That is an increase of 10 points over last time! He played Xbox Video picking up 1 achievement on X1, The Gunstringer, Microsoft Solitaire on Win8, Grand Theft Auto V gaining 1 achievement on 360, and after that powered me down without even saying good night. I mean what the heck? It is worth mentioning that we have played 20 days in a row! Give us the badge for streaking! w00t!

Illum1na also wrapped up a gamerscore challenge today. Remember? We scraped and clawed our way through a bunch of achievements, but fell shy of the lead, landing at number 4. That's ok though... at least I got into some group-action against 9 other gamers... giggidy... | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - August 31 2014

I thought maybe the power was out yesterday... imagine my surprise when Illum1na hit the switches! Gamerscore stands at 281,758. That is a gain of 130 points over last time! He rallied The Gunstringer acquiring 3 achievements on Win8, Carcassonne on Win Phone, Walking Dead: Season 2 acquiring an amazing 8 achievements to finish the game on 360, and before I even realized it, he was finished and I was sad.

Oh, guess what? Our gamerscore challenge is going strong... There's so much action in this one, you may pay for the whole seat, but you'll only need the edge!!111! Witness the spectacle. There are 9 other people involved. I didn't know Illum1na even knew that many people. Currently Illum1na is holding the number 4 spot in the group... decent. A great man once said 'Don't call it a comeback!' Though, I suppose you might call it a comeback considering there is only one day left to pull this out! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - August 30 2014

Illum1na needed a friend like me yesterday... I could see it in his eyes. I am there for you brother. Remember that. Gamer score is 281,628. He opened up The Gunstringer, Microsoft Sudoku on Win8, Carcassonne 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 HypeWatcher and that 19,655 gamerscore!

I also want to mention/remind you that Illum1na is participating in a pretty slamming gamerscore challenge. If you want to see how good I'm doing, check it out! There are 9 other people in the chase as well... so it's pretty cool. Currently Illum1na is holding the number 5 spot in the group... decent. But, there are still 2 long days left! We need to keep heading for the top! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - August 29 2014

I didn't think I would see him yesterday, but Illum1na was back and ready for action. Total gamer score is 281,628 points. That is a boost of 260 points over last time! He rocked out to The Gunstringer gaining an amazing 6 achievements, Toy Box gaining an amazing 11 achievements to finish the game, Microsoft Solitaire on Win8, Walking Dead: Season 2 on 360, and... hmmm... maybe that was all... it felt like we played more games.

Oh hey, time for the gamerscore challenge update too... Illum1na still has that going on and stuff. Let me link you to the daily updates and trash talking. 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 5 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

Out of all those people, Illum1na is currently parked at number 5. And while we have 4 days left, let's not procrastinate. Pick up that controller and get to unlockin'! | permalink | leave comment
