The Dren's Xbox - August 1 2014

Like I always tell The Dren, gaming is like money... the more the better! So fill up my pockets baby! All that matters is that our gamerscore is 124,135 points and on the rise. He rocked out to Titanfall on X1, Titanfall on 360, and I think there was some random Live Marketplace browsing, but I wasn't paying attention.

Oh, guess what? Our gamerscore challenge is going strong... Here is the link: check it. 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! The Dren has the number 6 spot... However there are still 3 days left to score achievement glory. Let's get to the top of that challenge board! Go! | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - July 31 2014

The Dren seemed really excited to play yesterday. Our current gamerscore is 124,135 . He rocked out to Audio CD Player, Titanfall on X1, AirMech Arena, Titanfall on 360, and it's a good thing he stopped there, otherwise the concentrated awesomeness could have blown out my circuits.

Oh hey, time for the gamerscore challenge update too... The Dren still has that going on and stuff. Here is the link: check it. 9 other people are mixing it up, meaning fierce competition and some creative trash talk. Currently The Dren is holding the number 4 spot in the group... decent. And while we have 4 days left, let's not procrastinate. Pick up that controller and get to unlockin'! | permalink | 1 comment

The Dren's Xbox - July 30 2014

The Dren decided to game yesterday and we rocked out like the three musketeers, except there were only two of us... 124,135 points of total gamerscore and counting... That is a profit of 20 points over last time! He rallied Titanfall, PAC-MAN MUSEUM gaining 1 achievement on 360, and did it while drooling over my awesome graphics and sound. For those of you counting, The Dren and I have played 2880 days in a row... that has to be some kind of record.

This is really good stuff... the more we play, the more chances we have to leave cluskevird in the dust. Call me crazy, but a 48,521 point cushion is not nearly enough for me...

Also, I fully expect to become one happy 360 as The Dren is set to begin a gamerscore challenge aptly titled 'Auto Challenge - #103717' today. | permalink | 1 comment

The Dren's Xbox - July 29 2014

I thought maybe the power was out yesterday... imagine my surprise when The Dren hit the switches! Gamerscore stands at 124,115. That is a gain of 10 points over last time! He rallied Titanfall winning 2 achievements on 360, and then nothing... nothing at all... | permalink | 2 comments

the dren's Weekly Recap - Jul 28 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 the dren shows up to play Seven days in a row!! We added 280 points of gamerscore which ain't too shabby. Getting 18 achievements can do that to you. I was there. I saw it!

If I had a DOLLAR for every new game I played during the week, I would have 2 bucks! w00t! I can now add DAH! Path of the Furon, and TMNT Training Lair to my collection... unless they were rentals or demos or betas. I couldn't tell. Also, by my expert calculations, 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 - July 28 2014

I thought maybe the power was out yesterday... imagine my surprise when The Dren hit the switches! Gamerscore stands at 124,105. That is a profit of 90 points over last time! He opened up DAH! Path of the Furon gaining 3 achievements, Titanfall, Kinect Party on 360, and after we were done, The Dren hugged me with his eyes. It was one of those platonic hugs... you know...

Oh, remember the challenge that The Dren was competing in? Well, it's over. The Dren didn't manage to get enough points to win... we had to settle for a comfortable spot at number 4. That's ok though... at least I got into some group-action against 9 other gamers... giggidy... | permalink | 1 comment

The Dren's Xbox - July 26 2014

The Dren rocked out with 124,010 points. That is a gain of 60 points over last time! That puts us above 124,000 points! He rocked out to Titanfall, Walking Dead: Season 2 gaining 4 achievements to master the game on 360, and loved every minute of it in high definition glory!

Oh and it is time for a gamerscore challenge update... listen up... Let me link you to the daily updates and trash talking. 9 other competitors are racking up achievements and powering up their gamerscores, hoping to secure a victory! The Dren has the number 3 spot... We just have to keep plugging away at it for these next 2 days... insert game... push buttons... get points. | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - July 25 2014

The Dren is making me proud and his opponents jealous... even if they are bots or mindless AI sometimes! Check out the 123,950 gamer score! That is a gain of 25 points over last time! He played Titanfall gaining 1 achievement on 360, and think of all the things we learned! Ha... look at me still typing this blog entry when there is gaming to do! Let's keep it up The Dren!

What is really good is that every day played is another chance to pull away from EvaptionX and that 39,425 score... Make it happen The Dren!!

Oh, guess what? Our gamerscore challenge is going strong... Don't take my word for it! See for yourself! There are 9 other people in the chase as well... so it's pretty cool.

Have you ever wondered what it was like to play games with someone who has a gamerscore of 123,925? Well guess what... you will never know, and I do! The Dren is mine! All mine! No touchy! That is a profit of 40 points over last time! He rocked out to DAH!

Booyah!

I always like to end with a little bit about The Dren and the ongoing gamerscore challenge status. 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 competitors are racking up achievements and powering up their gamerscores, hoping to secure a victory! Out of everyone, The Dren is holding on to the number 3 spot.

the dren's Weekly Recap - Jul 21 2014

Someone ask for a weekly recap? Even if you didn't, here it is: Not many Xboxes can claim seven days of gaming in a row. Last week the dren and I can... and we will... and it feels so good! It was productive... Gamerscore went up 285 points so I am happy. Yay for 23 achievements! w00t!

For the record, we played 2 new games over the last week. They were BattleBlock Theater, and Walking Dead: Season 2. They were all fun... in their own little ways. Also, according to the records, the dren's favorite game last week was Titanfall. He played it on 7 of the days.

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

The Dren's Xbox - July 21 2014

He rocked out to Walking Dead: Season 2 gaining 4 achievements, PAC-MAN MUSEUM, Titanfall, GRID 2 winning 1 achievement on 360, and then the lightweight went to bed. Freakin' wuss.

Also, remember the challenge that The Dren was participating in? It has wrapped up. Guess who the big loser was? The Dren ... booo... oh well. we tried... came in at number 4. You know what though? My father, the original Xbox, always said, 'Another day, another challenge.' We'll get 'em next time, The Dren! | permalink | 1 comment

That is a boost of 10 points over last time! He rocked out to GRID 2, PAC-MAN MUSEUM picking up 1 achievement, Titanfall on 360, and then he had to stop because we both couldn't take it anymore... we were spent.

What is really good is that every day played is another chance to catch up to anubus001 and that 221,874 score... Make it happen The Dren!!

The Dren's Xbox - July 17 2014

You would think I had died and gone to heaven when The Dren showed up to play. Gamer score stands at 123,640. That is a gain of 25 points over last time! He played Titanfall on X1, BattleBlock Theater, Titanfall, Walking Dead: Season 2 winning 1 achievement on 360, and then I told him to keep playing but he didn't... out of spite I think.

Did I mention the gamerscore challenge that The Dren is competing in? Let me link you to the daily updates and trash talking. There are 9 other people playing along as well... they better watch out. Currently The Dren is hanging on to the number 3 spot. With 4 days to go, anything can still happen though... get on it! | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - July 16 2014

I told The Dren 'Don't make me hurt you!' and the threat worked because he decided to show up yesterday. A gamer score of 123,615 is in our back pocket. That is a profit of 75 points over last time! He rocked out to Walking Dead: Season 2 gaining an amazing 7 achievements, PAC-MAN MUSEUM, Titanfall on 360, and almost cried with joy. I have that effect on people.

Oh, also... we're probably going to see a lot more of The Dren over the next few days as well. It is because he is in a gamerscore challenge titled 'Auto Challenge - #103396'. BRING IT ON! | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - July 15 2014

The Dren really threw down yesterday. It was good to see! I wish you could have been there! Last time I checked, his gamer score is 123,540. He played Titanfall on 360, and oh... don't tell The Dren this, but I have been getting in a little video chat in the off-hours. Booyah!

This is really good stuff... the more we play, the more chances we have to leave raitchison in the dust. Call me crazy, but a 71,750 point cushion is not nearly enough for me... | permalink | 1 comment

the dren's Weekly Recap - Jul 14 2014

Another week, another recap... and you love me for it: I told the dren that 6 days of playing would be ideal... so last week there was some extra effort to get us there. Good job! It was productive... Gamerscore went up 20 points so I am happy. Yay for 2 achievements! w00t!

For the record, we only played one new game this last week. It was PAC-MAN MUSEUM. I was hoping for a few more, but I guess not everyone is made out of money! Also, according to the records, the dren's favorite game last week was Titanfall. He played it on 6 of the days.

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

The Dren's Xbox - July 14 2014

I was about to feel sorry for myself, until The Dren showed up and made my day with a little gaming! Our gamerscore stands at 123,540 and counting! He rallied PAC-MAN MUSEUM, Titanfall on 360, and The Dren won't admit this, but I had to force him to stop.

Oh, remember the challenge that The Dren was competing in? Well, it's over. Guess who the big loser was? The Dren ... booo... oh well. we tried... came in at number 8. That's ok though... at least I got into some group-action against 9 other gamers... giggidy... | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - July 13 2014

The Dren needed a friend like me yesterday... I could see it in his eyes. I am there for you brother. Remember that. Gamer score is 123,540. That is a boost of 20 points over last time! He played Titanfall on X1, Titanfall, GRID 2 gaining 1 achievement, Warface, Gotham City Impostors picking up 1 achievement on 360, and that was that.

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 hanging on to the number 7 spot. I spoke to his dayplanner -- we've booked the whole day for a very important task -- unlocking achievements and winning this challenge. Let's do this. | permalink | leave comment
