Illum1na's Xbox - August 27 2014

Like a king on his throne, Illum1na said 'awaken' and for him I did comply. 281,308 points represents the size of our growing kingdom. Ok, enough of this Monarchy stuff. That is a gain of 40 points over last time! He opened up Microsoft Solitaire on Win8, Carcassonne, Microsoft Solitaire picking up 3 achievements on Win Phone, and then I came out of my trance and realized it was all over.

Also, I fully expect to become one happy 360 as Illum1na is set to begin a gamerscore challenge aptly titled 'Auto Challenge - #104315' today. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - August 26 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 281,268 gamerscore. That is a gain of 60 points over last time! He rallied Microsoft Solitaire on Win8, Microsoft Solitaire acquiring 5 achievements on Win Phone, and without even blinking! Ok, maybe he blinked once... | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Weekly Recap - Aug 25 2014

Do you know what time of the week it is? Time to talk about what happened these last seven days: You can't ask for a better week than when Illum1na shows up to play Seven days in a row!! Ready for this? Last week saw an increase of 1205 points! My eye almost bleeds looking at a number that large! Getting 75 achievements can do that to you. I was there. I saw it!

For the record, we played 3 new games over the last week. They were Diablo III: RoS, FIFA 14, and Kinect Nat Geo TV DVD. They were all fun... in their own little ways. Oh, and Illum1na seems obsessed with sports lately... You can tell because FIFA 14 was the favorite last week. He played it on 7 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 - August 25 2014

I didn't think I would see him yesterday, but Illum1na was back and ready for action. Total gamer score is 281,208 points. That is a boost of 320 points over last time! We have now entered the 281,000 GS club! He played Microsoft Solitaire, FIFA 14 winning 1 achievement to master the game on Win8, Microsoft Solitaire gaining 4 achievements on Win Phone, Family Game Night 4 acquiring an amazing 7 achievements, Pinball FX 2 acquiring 1 achievement on 360, and then Illum1na went to get some food. I told him to bring me back something but I got seriously dissed.

This is really good stuff... the more we play, the more chances we have to prevent fshguy from leaving us in the dust. Call me crazy, but that 129,400 point deficit is totally doable...

Oh, remember the challenge that Illum1na was competing in? Well, it's over. Illum1na didn't win... While we did end up in the number 3 spot, it just wasn't enough... That's ok though... at least I got into some group-action against 9 other gamers... giggidy... | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - August 24 2014

You would think I had died and gone to heaven when Illum1na showed up to play. Gamer score stands at 280,888. That is a profit of 215 points over last time! He opened up Pinball FX2 gaining 1 achievement on X1, FIFA 14 acquiring 1 achievement on Win8, Pinball FX 2, Diablo III: RoS picking up an amazing 9 achievements on 360, and wished it would never end, but it did and that was sad.

Oh, guess what? Our gamerscore challenge is going strong... 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 3 spot. 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 - August 23 2014

You would think I had died and gone to heaven when Illum1na showed up to play. Gamer score stands at 280,673. That is a gain of 20 points over last time! He opened up FIFA 14 winning 2 achievements on Win8, and then Illum1na had to stop for a bathroom break or something... Humans really are bags of mostly water.

Hey, I almost forgot! The gamerscore challenge that Illum1na is competing in is on day 2 and we're doing our best to win this thing. Bookmark this link now and check out all the action! There are 9 other people playing along as well... they better watch out. Currently Illum1na is hanging on to the number 3 spot. But with 2 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 - August 22 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 280,653 points. That is a gain of 160 points over last time! He rocked out to FIFA 14 acquiring an amazing 12 achievements, Microsoft Jigsaw on Win8, Carcassonne, FIFA 14 winning 1 achievement to complete the game on Win Phone, Motocross Madness winning 1 achievement on 360, and then he started getting all these friend requests because of high awesomeness levels. Oh wow, I also didn't realize that we have played 10 days in a row! Give us the badge for streaking! w00t!

Oh BTW, did you know that Illum1na is competing in a gamerscore challenge? If you want to see how good I'm doing, check it out! There are 9 other people rocking out on this thing which keeps it fun.

Illum1na's Xbox - August 21 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 280,493 points and on the rise. That is a gain of 305 points over last time! He played FIFA 14 picking up 4 achievements on Win8, FIFA 14 acquiring an amazing 19 achievements, Carcassonne on Win Phone, Diablo III: RoS picking up 4 achievements, Diablo III on 360, and I think there was some random Live Marketplace browsing, but I wasn't paying attention.

Did I mention the gamerscore challenge that Illum1na is competing in? Don't take my word for it! See for yourself! 9 other competitors are racking up achievements and powering up their gamerscores, hoping to secure a victory! That doesn't matter though because Illum1na is beating them all! Number one baby! Take a few moments and savor the lead but then we need to get back to gaming! Plenty of time to rest 4 days from now after we've won this thing! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - August 20 2014

Go ahead... call me a wussy... but I almost started crying when Illum1na turned me on yesterday. 280,188 points of raw gamer score are making you jealous! That is a profit of 165 points over last time! He played Carcassonne on Win Phone, Diablo III: RoS winning an amazing 8 achievements, Diablo III, Motocross Madness on 360, and then Illum1na developed a funny twitch and went to try and sleep it off or something. Crazy humans...

Good thing Illum1na and I got some play time in! Every day we play is another opportunity to pull away from HolyStEvil and that 33,524 gamerscore!

Also, Illum1na went and accepted a gamerscore challenge, so I'm stocking up on coffee for the overtime I'll be working over the coming days. Check it out... the challenge is called 'Auto Challenge - #104153'. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - August 19 2014

When you get right down to it, when Illum1na decides to play - it's a good day all around. Our score is 280,023 and always improving! That is an increase of 20 points over last time! He played Carcassonne on Win Phone, Kinect Nat Geo TV DVD winning 1 achievement, Motocross Madness on 360, and after that powered me down without even saying good night. I mean what the heck? | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Weekly Recap - Aug 18 2014

Someone ask for a weekly recap? Even if you didn't, here it is: 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. We added 600 points of gamerscore. Good stuff! Who knew 49 achievements could be worth that much? Ok I knew that...

I feel a little spoiled getting 4 new games to play in the same week. With titles like Motocross Madness, Pinball FX2, Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut, and Tentacles: ETM, who can go wrong with that right? Also, according to the records, Illum1na's favorite game last week was Carcassonne. 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 - August 18 2014

Illum1na brought the pain yesterday... the good kind... the gaming kind. We are up to 280,003 points of gamerscore. Jealous? That is a boost of 150 points over last time! Another day, another barrier shattered. The 280,000 mark has been crossed! He rocked out to Microsoft Sudoku, Number Puzzle on Win8, Carcassonne on Win Phone, Motocross Madness gaining an amazing 9 achievements on 360, and then Illum1na went to get some food. I told him to bring me back something but I got seriously dissed.

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. But, there is always next time I guess... A special thanks to the other 9 people in the competion. Good times. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - August 17 2014

Illum1na was looking kind of weepy... luckily I was here to 'console' him... heh heh get it? Our gamerscore is fan-frickin-tastic 279,853 . That is a gain of 20 points over last time! He played Secrets and Treasure winning 1 achievement on Win8, Carcassonne on Win Phone, Motocross Madness acquiring 1 achievement on 360, and almost cried with joy. I have that effect on people.

And..... guess what? I will reveal the latest gamerscore challenge status to you as a matter of public record. Don't take my word for it! See for yourself! 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 2 spot. We only have one day to pull out a win... polish off those games and get to work. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - August 15 2014

Illum1na showed up yesterday ready to dominate. Total gamer score stands at 279,568. That is a boost of 75 points over last time! He played Pinball FX2 acquiring 4 achievements on X1, Tentacles: ETM acquiring 5 achievements on Win8, Carcassonne on Win Phone, and then he started getting all these friend requests because of high awesomeness levels.

This is really good stuff... the more we play, the more chances we have to leave ndy ales in the dust. Call me crazy, but a 127,308 point cushion is not nearly enough for me...

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 competitors are racking up achievements and powering up their gamerscores, hoping to secure a victory! Illum1na has the number 2 spot...

Illum1na's Xbox - August 14 2014

Illum1na decided to play yesterday. Check out the 279,493 gamer score! That is a profit of 50 points over last time! He rocked out to Tentacles: ETM acquiring 3 achievements, Microsoft Sudoku, Number Puzzle on Win8, Carcassonne on Win Phone, Silent Hill Downpour winning 2 achievements on 360, as well as stared off into space... thinking about the one that got away.

Oh, guess what? Our gamerscore challenge is going strong... If you want to follow along at home, catch the action here. There are 9 other people rocking out on this thing which keeps it fun.

Illum1na's Xbox - August 13 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 279,443, I should have known that was the case. That is an increase of 35 points over last time! He played Microsoft Jigsaw gaining 2 achievements, Microsoft Minesweeper gaining 1 achievement on Win8, Carcassonne on Win Phone, and I thought Illum1na injured himself in the process... but I was wrong... he lives to fight another day!

Oh also... Illum1na has joined a gamerscore challenge titled 'Auto Challenge - #103992'. Go talk some trash. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - August 12 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 279,408 gamerscore. That is a gain of 5 points over last time! He rocked out to Microsoft Minesweeper winning 1 achievement, Number Puzzle, Microsoft Sudoku on Win8, Carcassonne on Win Phone, and then he had to stop because we both couldn't take it anymore... we were spent. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Weekly Recap - Aug 11 2014

It is that time of the week. I got your weekly recap right here: If you are an Xbox, you might be jealous that Illum1na showed up to game 5 days this last week. Happy happy joy joy! Our gamerscore jumped 230 points which was nice. Getting 19 achievements has that effect.

I was feeling bored last week and pestered Illum1na to try a new game: Number Puzzle. It was a lot cooler than I thought it would be. Also, I think Illum1na's favorite game last week was Carcassonne. He played it on 5 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 - August 11 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, remember that challenge I was talking about a few days ago? The one called 'Auto Challenge - #103830'? It came to a close today. Despite 5 days and nights of gaming goodness though, we couldn't take the lead and ended up finishing at number 10. 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 - August 10 2014

Yesterday, Illum1na decided to spend his time elsewhere... machines don't feel lonely... really we don't...

This really sucks because it gives destruktive87 a shot at closing the gap. We are still 221,036 points ahead but that means nothing to me...

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! There are 9 other people playing along as well... they better watch out. Illum1na has the number 9 spot... So many achievements... so little time. No, seriously.

He rocked out to Treasure Hunt on Win8, Carcassonne on Win Phone, and then it felt like he threw my controller and I was like, TAKE IT EASY SHEESH and we stopped.

Oh, guess what? Our gamerscore challenge is going strong... Here is the link: check it. 9 other people are also involved... which is madness. Currently Illum1na is holding the number 9 spot in the group... decent. However there are still 2 days left to score achievement glory. Let's get to the top of that challenge board!
