chrisvenn's Weekly Recap - Dec 22 2014

This entry is a little different than the others. It is a recap of the last week of gaming. Check it: If you are an Xbox, you might be jealous that chrisvenn showed up to game 6 days this last week. Happy happy joy joy! We added 75 points of gamerscore which ain't too shabby.

I was feeling bored last week and convinced chrisvenn to try a new game: Blu-ray Player. It was a lot cooler than I thought it would be. Also, by my expert calculations, chrisvenn's favorite game last week was Blu-ray Player. He played it on 3 of the days.

Another week finished... staring down the barrel of another one. Check back to find out what happens! | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - December 22 2014

chrisvenn really threw down yesterday. It was good to see! I wish you could have been there! Last time I checked, his gamer score is 198,545. He rocked out to Call of Dutyテつョ: Advanced Warfare, Blu-ray Player on X1, and after that powered me down without even saying good night. I mean what the heck?

Oh hey... also... I can't even believe that the gamerscore challenge formerly-known-as 'Auto Challenge - #107054' is over. Those 5 days flew by in a whirlwind of achievements and trash talk. We scraped and clawed our way through a bunch of achievements, but fell shy of the lead, landing at number 6. So, no sense crying over this one... climb back on the horse chrisvenn... giddy-up... | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - December 21 2014

chrisvenn is awesome! Just plain radical even... I say that because we played some games. Did you know our gamerscore is 198,545? He rocked out to Blu-ray Player on X1, and did it while drooling over my awesome graphics and sound.

Did I mention the gamerscore challenge that chrisvenn is competing in? Check out the progress right now! 9 other people are mixing it up, meaning fierce competition and some creative trash talk. Currently chrisvenn is holding the number 6 spot in the group... decent. We've only got one day left. Let's cancel everything on our schedule from school to work to sleep (haven't been following what chrisvenn does these days) and win this challenge! | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - December 20 2014

chrisvenn hit the switch and fired me up yesterday... his total gamer score is 198,545.He rocked out to Call of Dutyテつョ: Advanced Warfare on X1, and it's a good thing he stopped there, otherwise the concentrated awesomeness could have blown out my circuits.

This is really good stuff... the more we play, the more chances we have to leave avsfan4ever33 in the dust. Call me crazy, but a 86,340 point cushion is not nearly enough for me...

I also want to mention/remind you that chrisvenn is participating in a pretty slamming gamerscore challenge. Don't take my word for it! See for yourself! There are 9 other people rocking out on this thing which keeps it fun. Out of everyone, chrisvenn is holding on to the number 6 spot. We just have to keep plugging away at it for these next 2 days... insert game... push buttons... get points. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - December 19 2014

chrisvenn was absent yesterday... I was smelling something that reminded me of sweat... he better not be playing with a Nintendo Wii... burning calories while playing games is just wrong.

I also want to mention/remind you that chrisvenn is participating in a pretty slamming gamerscore challenge. Bookmark this link now and check out all the action! There are 9 other people rocking out on this thing which keeps it fun. Currently chrisvenn is holding the number 3 spot in the group... decent. But with 3 days left and plenty of achievements out there, we've got this one in the bag. Let's make it happen. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - December 18 2014

I thought chrisvenn just wanted to listen to music or watch a DVD. Turns out he was there to game. With a gamer score of 198,545, I should have known that was the case. That is a boost of 25 points over last time! He rocked out to Halo Channel, Halo: The Master Chief Collection gaining 4 achievements on X1, and then chrisvenn went to get some food. I told him to bring me back something but I got seriously dissed.

Oh hey, time for the gamerscore challenge update too... chrisvenn still has that going on and stuff. Check out the progress right now! 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. chrisvenn has the number 3 spot... And while we have 4 days left, let's not procrastinate. Pick up that controller and get to unlockin'! | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - December 17 2014

chrisvenn had to choose between watching TV and playing with me and I am happy to say I won... this time... Gamerscore is at 198,520 points. That is a gain of 50 points over last time! He rallied Far Cryテつョ 4 gaining 1 achievement, Amazon Instant Video on X1, and I thought chrisvenn injured himself in the process... but I was wrong... he lives to fight another day!

Oh I almost forgot to mention that chrisvenn has joined a gamerscore challenge titled 'Auto Challenge - #107054'. Go check it out and follow along. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - December 16 2014

When you want to get on the cover of the gaming magazines, you have to play every day! I keep telling chrisvenn that as motivation... yesterday it worked! We went for a spin... played some games... ended with a score of 198,470. He played Blu-ray Player, Call of Dutyテつョ: Advanced Warfare on X1, and... hmmm... I forget what else we did... | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Weekly Recap - Dec 15 2014

It is hard to believe another week has passed. Here is the recap: 4 days of gaming made me pretty happy for some reason. A big holler to chrisvenn for honoring me with what little time I know is available. We added 170 points of gamerscore. Good stuff!

I was also pretty happy about the 2 new games this last week. They were (in no particular order) Metro Redux, and The Evil Within. I liked them. I think chrisvenn did too. Also, I think we can all agree that chrisvenn's favorite game last week was Far Cryツョ 4. He played it on 4 of the days.

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

chrisvenn's Xbox - December 15 2014

I heard that chrisvenn was bragging about all the gaming we did and that had me really confused. Our gamerscore now stands at 198,470 which is a change of 90 from the last time I remember it. However I can't tell you any of the games we played. I must be losing it. Oh well... gaming and not remembering is better than not gaming at all.

This really sucks because it gives FragEmAndSmile a shot at widening the gap. We are still 18,523 points behind... but we can't get there if we don't play.

Oh, remember the challenge that chrisvenn was competing in? Well, it's over. Despite 5 days and nights of gaming goodness though, we couldn't take the lead and ended up finishing at number 4. You know, sometimes someone else just has better cheat codes than you do -- I mean, that's the only explanation for a loss in this challenge!!! | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - December 14 2014

chrisvenn decided to ride the gamer-train yesterday. I will admit it... I was happy. What is the gamer score? 198,380 is what it is! He rocked out to Far Cryテつョ 4, Call of Dutyテつョ: Advanced Warfare, The Evil Within on X1, and loved every minute of it in high definition glory!

Oh hey, time for the gamerscore challenge update too... chrisvenn still has that going on and stuff. 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 mixing it up, meaning fierce competition and some creative trash talk. Currently chrisvenn is holding the number 4 spot in the group... decent. We only have one day to pull out a win... polish off those games and get to work. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - December 12 2014

We played games yesterday... No really... I have proof! chrisvenn might have told you otherwise, but we really did. 198,380 points of total gamerscore means we are teh awes0me! That is a gain of 40 points over last time!

chrisvenn's Xbox - December 10 2014

My power supply almost exploded! chrisvenn turned on the juice and we did some serious gaming! 198,340 points of total gamerscore is pretty good. Admit it. That is a gain of 40 points over last time! He rocked out to Far Cryテつョ 4 gaining 1 achievement, Amazon Instant Video on X1, and then he almost hugged me, but I was like back off dude.

Good thing chrisvenn and I got some play time in! Every day we play is another opportunity to pull away from twistedsymphony and that 110,387 gamerscore!

chrisvenn's Xbox - December 9 2014

Wow... chrisvenn must have some kids or pets or dragons or something thrashing around the house... I heard lots of noise, but didn't see any gaming. That's alright, animals and people first, game consoles always second... I don't expect much else. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Weekly Recap - Dec 8 2014

Someone ask for a weekly recap? Even if you didn't, here it is: chrisvenn played 6 days last week... pretty solid I guess... I'm not feeling that picky lately. It was productive... Gamerscore went up 190 points so I am happy. Also, I think we can all agree that chrisvenn's favorite game last week was Amazon Instant Video. He played it on 3 of the days.

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

chrisvenn's Xbox - December 8 2014

What time is it? Time to tell you about yesterday when chrisvenn came to play. Gamer score stands at 198,300. That is a profit of 160 points over last time! He rocked out to TrueAchievements gaining 2 achievements, Far Cryテつョ 4 winning an amazing 6 achievements, Amazon Instant Video, YouTube on X1, and loved every minute of it in high definition glory!

Hey, remember that challenge I was talking about a few days ago? The one called 'Auto Challenge - #106712'? It came to a close today. chrisvenn didn't manage to get the win... but I guess number 6 is better than number LAST!!... wait... maybe we are last? How many people are in this thing? Can I count?

Well, I didn't get to game yesterday... I hope this doesn't become some sort of trend... that would be on the lame side of things...
