Major Nelson's Xbox - October 21 2014

Major Nelson had the funny 'non-gaming' look in his eyes yesterday so I just kept to myself... + Maybe Major Nelson didn't realize it, but that is a streak of 26 days! Right out the freakin' window! How difficult would it have been to load up an arcade game? Huh? | permalink

Major Nelson's Weekly Recap - Oct 20 2014

This entry is a little different than the others. It is a recap of the last week of gaming. Check it: You can't ask for a better week than when Major Nelson shows up to play Seven days in a row!! Our gamerscore saw a 550 point boost which is good.

I was feeling bored last week and prodded Major Nelson to try a new game: Xbox Preview Dashboard. It was a lot cooler than I thought it would be. Also, I think we can all agree that Major Nelson's favorite game last week was Alien: Isolation. 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

I was lucky enough to sample 4 new tasty treats during the week! Game names are Alien: Isolation, Chariot, Forza Hub, and NHL® 15 Full Game. Look for us in the leaderboards... maybe... Also, by my expert calculations, Major Nelson's favorite game last week was Alien: Isolation. He played it on 6 of the days.

Major Nelson's Xbox - October 8 2014

Uhhh... I have a question for Major Nelson. Our gamerscore was 72,072 but somehow it is now 15 which means that 15 points were mysteriously added!! Like magic! I suspect betrayal... and it makes me want to cry. If you knew you were going to lose your 16 day streak like you did would you have played? | permalink

Major Nelson's Weekly Recap - Oct 6 2014

Are you ready for a recap? I know I am! Giddyup: Not many Xboxes can claim seven days of gaming in a row. Last week Major Nelson and I can... and we will... and it feels so good! We added 285 points of gamerscore. Good stuff!

For the record, we played 2 new games over the last week. They were Middle-earth™: Shadow of Mordor™, and Sunset Overdrive. They were all fun... in their own little ways. Also, I think Major Nelson's favorite game last week was Forza Horizon 2. 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

Major Nelson's Xbox - October 3 2014

I told Major Nelson 'Don't make me hurt you!' and the threat worked because he decided to show up yesterday. A gamer score of 71,887 is in our back pocket. That is a gain of 60 points over last time! He rocked out to Middle-earthâ„¢: Shadow of Mordorâ„¢ gaining 4 achievements, Forza Horizon 2 on X1, and after that powered me down without even saying good night. I mean what the heck? I also want to bring up that there are good gamers, and there are bad gamers. I hope it was a misunderstanding, but Major Nelson's gamer reputation went down a little bit yesterday. Hopefully this is not the start of something evil. | permalink
