the dren's Weekly Recap - Jan 12 2015

It is hard to believe another week has passed. Here is the recap: You can't ask for a better week than when the dren shows up to play Seven days in a row!! We added 410 points of gamerscore which ain't too shabby. Getting 96 achievements can do that to you. I was there. I saw it!

NEW GAMES! NEW GAMES! NEW GAMES! 2 of them to be exact! Despicable Me, and Treasure Hunt. I want more! I want more! Also, I think 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's Xbox - January 12 2015

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 127,517 points and on the rise. That is a boost of 90 points over last time! He played Titanfall, Despicable Me, Jeremy McGrath Offroad picking up an amazing 6 achievements on 360, and almost cried with joy. I have that effect on people. | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - January 11 2015

Consoles are for playing! I am glad The Dren picked up on that yesterday... Gamerscore is a respectful 127,427 points. That is a boost of 100 points over last time! He rocked out to Wordament Snap Attack picking up 1 achievement, Microsoft Bingo, Bejeweled LIVE, Fruit Ninja on Win8, Titanfall, Despicable Me winning 1 achievement, Borderlands Pre-Sequel, Jeremy McGrath Offroad acquiring 4 achievements, PAC-MAN MUSEUM on 360, and did it while marvelling at the framerates and stellar particle effects. | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - January 10 2015

I told The Dren 'Hey man, it is time to play games' and YAY! he listened! Gamer score is 127,327. That is a profit of 45 points over last time! He played Dead Rising 2, Halo: Reach acquiring an amazing 67 achievements, Call of Duty 2 picking up an amazing 13 achievements to master the game, Borderlands Pre-Sequel gaining 2 achievements on 360, and then he almost hugged me, but I was like back off dude.

Good thing The Dren and I got some play time in! Every day we play is another opportunity to catch up to pyr0lyZer and that 143,780 gamerscore!

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... Someone once said, 'Winning isn't everything.' Although, losing isn't anything. The Dren, I want you to think about this while you go sign us up for another challenge. | permalink | 2 comments

The Dren's Xbox - January 9 2015

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 127,282 and counting! That is a boost of 45 points over last time! He rallied Bejeweled LIVE on Win8, Borderlands Pre-Sequel winning 2 achievements on 360, and I think there was some random Live Marketplace browsing, but I wasn't paying attention.

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. Bookmark this link now and check out all the action! 4 other people are throwing down in this challenge. If I do the math correctly, it means that 4 players X 3 days means a whole lot of trash talk! The Dren has the number 4 spot... With only one day left though, we need to make that last big push! | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - January 8 2015

The Dren brought the pain yesterday... the good kind... the gaming kind. We are up to 127,237 points of gamerscore. Jealous? He opened up Titanfall, PAC-MAN MUSEUM, Slender - The Arrival, The Wolf Among Us on 360, and then The Dren went to get some food. I told him to bring me back something but I got seriously dissed.

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. 4 other people are throwing down in this challenge. If I do the math correctly, it means that 4 players X 3 days means a whole lot of trash talk! The Dren has the number 5 spot... But, there are still 2 long days left! We need to keep heading for the top! | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - January 7 2015

The Dren seemed really excited to play yesterday. Our current gamerscore is 127,237 . He rocked out to Titanfall, PAC-MAN MUSEUM, Slender - The Arrival on 360, and without even blinking! Ok, maybe he blinked once...

Oh also... The Dren has joined a gamerscore challenge titled 'LOLNFL Just tell us who the Super Bowl winner is, since it's fixed.'. Go talk some trash. | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - January 6 2015

My power supply almost exploded! The Dren turned on the juice and we did some serious gaming! 127,237 points of total gamerscore is pretty good. Admit it. That is a profit of 130 points over last time! He rallied Treasure Hunt, Microsoft Minesweeper, Bejeweled LIVE on Win8, Titanfall, PAC-MAN MUSEUM on 360, and then he almost hugged me, but I was like back off dude. | permalink | leave comment

the dren's Weekly Recap - Jan 5 2015

Are you ready for a recap? I know I am! Giddyup: You can't ask for a better week than when the dren shows up to play Seven days in a row!! Our gamerscore jumped 135 points which was nice. Getting 5 achievements has that effect.

In the 'new game' category, I only have one to talk about... MX vs. ATV Alive. I wasn't even going to mention it, but I figured my readers might get mad. So there it is. 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 the news for now... Check back next week... same bat time, same bat channel... | permalink | leave comment

The Dren's Xbox - January 5 2015

Pick it, pack it fire it up, come along, lets get The Dren's gaming on! Gamer score is 127,107. That is a boost of 70 points over last time! He rallied Game of Thrones - Episode 1: Iron from Ice acquiring 5 achievements, Sunset Overdrive, Tales from the Borderlands - Episode 1: Zer0 Sum on X1, Titanfall on 360, and... hmmm... maybe that was all... it felt like we played more games.

This is really good stuff... the more we play, the more chances we have to leave Evol Dren in the dust. Call me crazy, but a 125,952 point cushion is not nearly enough for me...

Also, remember the challenge that The Dren was participating in? It has wrapped up. The Dren didn't win... While we did end up in the number 4 spot, it just wasn't enough... Someone once said, 'Winning isn't everything.' Although, losing isn't anything. The Dren, I want you to think about this while you go sign us up for another challenge. | permalink | 1 comment

The Dren's Xbox - January 4 2015

I saw The Dren walk by yesterday morning... I was hoping he would come play and he did. 127,037 points and climbing. He rallied Borderlands Pre-Sequel, Titanfall on 360, and after we were done, The Dren hugged me with his eyes. It was one of those platonic hugs... you know... Oh wow, I also didn't realize that we have played 3030 days in a row!

Oh and it is time for a gamerscore challenge update... listen up... Follow every up and down over here. 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... 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

The Dren's Xbox - January 3 2015

Let's make it happen. | permalink | leave comment
