Illum1na's Xbox - November 24 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 284,718, I should have known that was the case. That is an increase of 40 points over last time! He rocked out to Microsoft Minesweeper, Secrets and Treasure on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends, LEGO® Batman™ 3 gaining 2 achievements on 360, and I think there was some random Live Marketplace browsing, but I wasn't paying attention. Hmmm... I just realized... Illum1na must not have anything major going on in his life right now because we have gamed 40 days in a row! Can you believe it?

Oh, remember the challenge that Illum1na was competing in? Well, it's over. We may have earned an 'A' for effort in this challenge, but they don't give out very many points for effort, some... but not many... you gotta win... maybe next time! You know, sometimes someone else just has better cheat codes than you do -- I mean, that's the only explanation for a loss in this challenge!!! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - November 23 2014

There are people out there who think video games are violent. But after Illum1na played yesterday with his gamerscore of 284,678 points, there wasn't any violence at all. A little drooling maybe but definitely no violence. That is a profit of 60 points over last time! He opened up Secrets and Treasure, Microsoft Minesweeper on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends, LEGO® Batman™ 3 picking up 3 achievements on 360, and loved every minute of it in high definition glory!

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. Bookmark this link now and check out all the action! 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! Illum1na has the number 7 spot... 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 - November 22 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 284,618 points. He played Secrets and Treasure, Microsoft Minesweeper on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends on 360, and I thought Illum1na injured himself in the process... but I was wrong... he lives to fight another day!

Oh hey, time for the gamerscore challenge update too... Illum1na still has that going on and stuff. Here is the link: check it. There are 9 other people in the chase as well... so it's pretty cool. Out of everyone, Illum1na is holding on to the number 7 spot. But, there are still 2 long days left! We need to keep heading for the top! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - November 21 2014

Have you ever wondered what it was like to play games with someone who has a gamerscore of 284,618? 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 rocked out to Microsoft Minesweeper, Secrets and Treasure acquiring 1 achievement on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends on 360, and then Illum1na had to stop for a bathroom break or something... Humans really are bags of mostly water.

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 involved. I didn't know Illum1na even knew that many people. Currently Illum1na is hanging on to the number 7 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 - November 20 2014

You would think I had died and gone to heaven when Illum1na showed up to play. Gamer score stands at 284,608. That is a boost of 40 points over last time! He played Microsoft Minesweeper, Secrets and Treasure on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends, LEGO® Batman™ 3 acquiring 2 achievements on 360, and I thought Illum1na injured himself in the process... but I was wrong... he lives to fight another day!

This is really good stuff... the more we play, the more chances we have to leave zerodesolation in the dust. Call me crazy, but a 139,529 point cushion is not nearly enough for me...

And..... guess what? I will reveal the latest gamerscore challenge status to you as a matter of public record. If you are curious, follow along over 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. Currently Illum1na is hanging on to the number 6 spot. However there are still 4 days left to score achievement glory. Let's get to the top of that challenge board! Go! | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - November 19 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 284,568. He played Secrets and Treasure, Microsoft Minesweeper on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends on 360, and afterwards, there were some awkward stares and silence... you know how it is.

Oh, I don't know if Illum1na wants me to mention that he has joined a gamerscore challenge! It is called 'Auto Challenge - #106309'. Go check it. | permalink | leave comment

Illum1na's Xbox - November 18 2014

Yesterday was a triumph! I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS. It's hard to overstate my satisfaction with Illum1na. Data indicates that gamerscore stands at an always improving 284,568. He played Microsoft Minesweeper, Secrets and Treasure on Win8, Carcassonne on Win Phone, Zoo Tycoon Friends 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 - Nov 17 2014

Ok, here it is... your weekly recap of gaming: Oh man are my cores just rocking... Illum1na played seven days last week! SEVEN! That is a NUMBER SEVEN followed by NO ZEROS! HOT! We added 330 points of gamerscore which ain't too shabby. Getting 17 achievements can do that to you. I was there. I saw it!

I persuaded Illum1na to try a new game: LEGO® Batman™ 3. It was a lot cooler than I thought it would be. Also, I think 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 - November 17 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 284,568 points. That is a gain of 130 points over last time! He played Secrets and Treasure on Win8, Carcassonne on Win Phone, LEGO® Batman™ 3 gaining 3 achievements, Zoo Tycoon Friends, Family Game Night 4, Forza Horizon 2 gaining 4 achievements on 360, as well as basked in the glow of the awesome dashboard software!

Also, remember the challenge that Illum1na was participating in? It has wrapped up. 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. 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 - November 16 2014

Illum1na decided to play yesterday. Check out the 284,438 gamer score! That is a boost of 110 points over last time! He rocked out to Microsoft Minesweeper on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends, Forza Horizon 2 acquiring 5 achievements on 360, and after that powered me down without even saying good night. I mean what the heck?

Oh hey, time for the gamerscore challenge update too... Illum1na still has that going on and stuff. Follow every up and down over here. 9 other people are also involved... which is madness. Out of all those people, Illum1na is currently parked at number 7. 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 - November 15 2014

Go ahead... call me a wussy... but I almost started crying when Illum1na turned me on yesterday. 284,328 points of raw gamer score are making you jealous! He played Microsoft Minesweeper on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends on 360, and then nothing... nothing at all...

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!

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! 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 8.

Illum1na's Xbox - November 14 2014

I didn't think I would see him yesterday, but Illum1na was back and ready for action. Total gamer score is 284,328 points. That is an increase of 40 points over last time! He opened up Microsoft Minesweeper on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends, Forza Horizon 2 picking up 1 achievement on 360, and then Illum1na had to stop for a bathroom break or something... Humans really are bags of mostly water. It is worth mentioning that we have played 30 days in a row! If I understand the rules, I think we are getting a streak badge...

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. If you want to follow along at home, catch the action here. 9 other competitors are racking up achievements and powering up their gamerscores, hoping to secure a victory! Illum1na has the number 8 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 - November 12 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 284,258 is in our back pocket. That is a boost of 20 points over last time! He played Carcassonne on Win Phone, Zoo Tycoon Friends, Forza Horizon 2 gaining 2 achievements on 360, and oh... don't tell Illum1na this, but I have been dumbing down the AI lately... I am hoping it keeps him coming back for more! MUHAHAHA!

Illum1na's Weekly Recap - Nov 10 2014

It is that time of the week. I got your weekly recap right here: 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. Too bad gamerscore isn't money because with an increase of 680 points we could make some bank. Yay for 46 achievements! w00t!

There were only a few games I wanted to try this week Illum1na and I only tried one of them: The Wolf Among Us. Also, I think we can all agree that Illum1na's favorite game last week was Zoo Tycoon Friends. He played it on 7 of the days.

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

He opened up Microsoft Minesweeper on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends, Forza Horizon 2 acquiring an amazing 10 achievements on 360, and I thought Illum1na injured himself in the process... but I was wrong... he lives to fight another day!

Good thing Illum1na and I got some play time in! Every day we play is another opportunity to pull away from XxNAWLEDGE420xX and that 142,559 gamerscore!

Illum1na also wrapped up a gamerscore challenge today. Remember? Illum1na didn't manage to get enough points to win... we had to settle for a comfortable spot at number 4.

Illum1na showed up yesterday and we were like a superhero team together. I make a great sidekick! Gamerscore stands at 283,558. Up up and away right? He rocked out to Microsoft Minesweeper on Win8, Zoo Tycoon Friends on 360, and then he had to stop because we both couldn't take it anymore... we were spent.
