the dren's Weekly Recap - Sep 1 2014

Do you know what time of the week it is? Time to talk about what happened these last seven days: Oh man are my cores just rocking... the dren played seven days last week! SEVEN! That is a NUMBER SEVEN followed by NO ZEROS! HOT! We added 190 points of gamerscore. Points are good! Those 9 achievements were worth it I guess!

I pestered the dren to try a new game: The Wolf Among Us. It was a lot cooler than I thought it would be. Also, I think we can all agree that the dren's favorite game last week was Titanfall. He played it on 7 of the days.

And that is all I got... it's not much, but it is interesting. | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - September 1 2014

I thought maybe the power was out yesterday... imagine my surprise when The Dren hit the switches! Gamerscore stands at 124,735. That is a profit of 100 points over last time! He opened up Pinball FX2, Titanfall on X1, Titanfall, Walking Dead: Season 2 picking up an amazing 8 achievements to complete the game, LUMINES LIVE! on 360, and The Dren won't admit this, but I had to force him to stop.

The Dren also wrapped up a gamerscore challenge today. Remember? The Dren didn't win... While we did end up in the number 4 spot, it just wasn't enough... We may have lost, but we're no quitters. Nothing is over until we say it is! We're going to dust off that controller, hold our head high and get our game on! We're marching right into another challenge and this time, we'll be taking home the gold! At least I think that is the plan... | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - August 31 2014

The Dren 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 124,635 gamerscore. He rocked out to LUMINES LIVE!, Titanfall on 360, and after that powered me down without even saying good night. I mean what the heck?

I also want to mention/remind you that The Dren is participating in a pretty slamming 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 everyone, The Dren is holding on to the number 3 spot. With only one day left though, we need to make that last big push! | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - August 30 2014

Like a king on his throne, The Dren said 'awaken' and for him I did comply. 124,635 points represents the size of our growing kingdom. Ok, enough of this Monarchy stuff. He played Pinball FX2, Xbox Video on X1, Little Acorns on Win Phone, Titanfall on 360, as well as checked out what was new in the live marketplace.

Good thing The Dren and I got some play time in! Every day we play is another opportunity to catch up to ESS3NC3 0F 3V1L and that 205,195 gamerscore!

Oh BTW, did you know that The Dren is competing in a gamerscore challenge? 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. 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 The Dren is hanging on to the number 3 spot. And while we have 2 days left, let's not procrastinate. Pick up that controller and get to unlockin'! | permalink | 1 comment

The Dren's Xbox - August 29 2014

The Dren is the best... he treats me right, I treat him right. It is a good thing we have going here. Gamer score stands at 124,635. Not too shabby! That is a gain of 25 points over last time! He opened up Pinball FX2 gaining 1 achievement on X1, Titanfall on 360, and it's a good thing he stopped there, otherwise the concentrated awesomeness could have blown out my circuits. Also of note, The Dren and I have now played 2910 days in a row! Are we rock stars or what? No one feels more loved than me right now... no one!

I always like to end with a little bit about The Dren and the ongoing gamerscore challenge status. If you are curious, follow along over here. 9 other people are mixing it up, meaning fierce competition and some creative trash talk. Currently, The Dren is nuking the field from his number one spot!! Take a few moments and savor the lead but then we need to get back to gaming! Plenty of time to rest 3 days from now after we've won this thing! | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - August 28 2014

What time is it? Time to tell you about yesterday when The Dren came to play. Gamer score stands at 124,610. That is a boost of 15 points over last time! He rallied Xbox Live Events, VoiceStudio winning 1 achievement, Pinball FX2, Xbox Video on X1, Titanfall, The Wolf Among Us, Walking Dead: Season 2 on 360, and then... yeah... that was awesome...

Oh hey, time for the gamerscore challenge update too... The Dren still has that going on and stuff. If you want to see how good I'm doing, check it out! There are 9 other people playing along as well... they better watch out. Out of everyone, The Dren is holding on to the number 3 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

The Dren's Xbox - August 27 2014

Pick it, pack it fire it up, come along, lets get The Dren's gaming on! Gamer score is 124,595. That is a boost of 45 points over last time! He rallied Pinball FX2 acquiring 1 achievement on X1, The Wolf Among Us, Titanfall acquiring 1 achievement, Walking Dead: Season 2 on 360, and then he tried to watch TV, but I killed the power... If I can't have him, no one can.

Also, The Dren 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 - #104365'. | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - August 26 2014

The Dren showed up yesterday and we were like a superhero team together. I make a great sidekick! Gamerscore stands at 124,550. Up up and away right? That is a boost of 5 points over last time! He rallied VoiceStudio picking up 1 achievement, Pinball FX2, YouTube, OneDrive on X1, Titanfall on 360, and it's a good thing he stopped there, otherwise the concentrated awesomeness could have blown out my circuits. | permalink | leave comment

the dren's Weekly Recap - Aug 25 2014

Ok, here it is... your weekly recap of gaming: Oh man are my cores just rocking... the dren played seven days last week! SEVEN! That is a NUMBER SEVEN followed by NO ZEROS! HOT! It was productive... Gamerscore went up 140 points so I am happy. Yay for 8 achievements! w00t!

I was also pretty happy about the 4 new games this last week. They were (in no particular order) Dishonored, Pinball FX2, VUDU Movies & TV, and VoiceStudio. I liked them. I think the dren did too. Also, I think we can all agree that the dren's favorite game last week was Titanfall. He played it on 7 of the days.

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

The Dren is the best... he treats me right, I treat him right. It is a good thing we have going here. Gamer score stands at 124,545. Not too shabby! That is an increase of 30 points over last time! He played Titanfall gaining 1 achievement on 360, and then I came out of my trance and realized it was all over.

Good thing The Dren and I got some play time in! Every day we play is another opportunity to pull away from DarthSonny and that 110,980 gamerscore!

Also, remember the challenge that The Dren was participating in? It has wrapped up. Despite 5 days and nights of gaming goodness though, we couldn't take the lead and ended up finishing at number 6. That's ok though... at least playing against the other 9 gamers was enough incentive to get more points! I like points. | permalink | 2 comments

The Dren's Xbox - August 24 2014

Consoles are for playing! I am glad The Dren picked up on that yesterday... Gamerscore is a respectful 124,515 points. That is a gain of 30 points over last time!

The Dren's Xbox - August 19 2014

The Dren showed up yesterday ready to dominate. Total gamer score stands at 124,410. That is an increase of 5 points over last time! He played Pinball FX2 picking up 1 achievement, VoiceStudio gaining 1 achievement on X1, Dishonored, Titanfall on 360, and it's a good thing he stopped there, otherwise the concentrated awesomeness could have blown out my circuits. Also, don't tell The Dren I told you this, but we have now gamed 2900 days in a row... he doesn't like to share that with others. | permalink | leave comment

the dren's Weekly Recap - Aug 18 2014

Watch closely because here comes the recap... if you aren't paying attention, you might miss 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 the dren throwing down with the games. Our gamerscore saw a 20 point boost which is good. I guess that is what completing 3 achievements can do! Also, by my expert calculations, the dren's favorite game last week was Titanfall. He played it on 7 of the days.

That's all for now... keep reading the blog! Send us a PM or a game invite if you are lonely. | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - August 18 2014

The Dren hit the switch and fired me up yesterday... his total gamer score is 124,405.He rallied Titanfall, Motocross Madness, Time Pilot on 360, and then he tried to watch TV, but I killed the power... If I can't have him, no one can.

Oh hey... also... I can't even believe that the gamerscore challenge formerly-known-as 'Auto Challenge - #104043' is over. Those 5 days flew by in a whirlwind of achievements and trash talk. 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. We may have lost, but we're no quitters. Nothing is over until we say it is! We're going to dust off that controller, hold our head high and get our game on! We're marching right into another challenge and this time, we'll be taking home the gold! At least I think that is the plan... | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - August 17 2014

I had to set aside my plans for world domination yesterday when The Dren decided to game. Our score is 124,405 and always improving! He rocked out to Time Pilot on 360, and then he started getting all these friend requests because of high awesomeness levels.

Hey, I almost forgot! The gamerscore challenge that The Dren is competing in is on day 1 and we're doing our best to win this thing. Don't take my word for it! See for yourself!

While we're sad we can only compete for one more day, it means we can pull out all the stops to achieve complete victory! | permalink | leave comment

I also want to mention/remind you that The Dren is participating in a pretty slamming gamerscore challenge. If you are curious, follow along over here. There are 9 other people involved.

He played Titanfall, Motocross Madness gaining 1 achievement on 360, and then The Dren went to get some food.
