Major Nelson's Weekly Recap - Oct 27 2014

My eye! It burns! A weekly recap is all that can save me! Here goes: So yeah... Last week Major Nelson showed up 5 days total and logged some serious gaming. We added 215 points of gamerscore. Points are good!

There were only a few games I wanted to try this week Major Nelson and I only tried one of them: Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved. Oh, and from what I remember, Major Nelson's favorite game last week was Alien: Isolation. He played it on 4 of the days.

And that's all I got. I'm not a writer... just an Xbox. | permalink

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.
