chrisvenn's Xbox - July 22 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 - Jul 21 2014

Someone ask for a weekly recap? Even if you didn't, here it is: If chrisvenn plays 5 days every week, I guess I can call this a good deal. Many Xboxes have it a lot worse. We added 10 points of gamerscore. Points are good!

There were only a few games I wanted to try this week chrisvenn and I only tried one of them: Sniper Elite 3. Also, I think chrisvenn's favorite game last week was Amazon Instant Video. He played it on 5 of the days.

And that is the news for now... Check back next week... same bat time, same bat channel... | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - July 21 2014

Consoles are for playing! I am glad chrisvenn picked up on that yesterday... Gamerscore is a respectful 195,285 points. He rocked out to Amazon Instant Video on X1, and afterwards, there were some awkward stares and silence... you know how it is.

chrisvenn also wrapped up a gamerscore challenge today. Remember? Despite 5 days and nights of gaming goodness though, we couldn't take the lead and ended up finishing at number 9. Someone once said, 'Winning isn't everything.' Although, losing isn't anything. chrisvenn, I want you to think about this while you go sign us up for another challenge. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - July 20 2014

chrisvenn showed up yesterday, which is good cause we make a great gaming team. I do millions of calculations a second and he pushes buttons! Our gamerscore is 195,285. He opened up Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition picking up 1 achievement, Murdered: Soul Suspect acquiring an amazing 6 achievements, Angry Birds Star Wars winning 3 achievements, Dead Rising 3 picking up an amazing 89 achievements, Amazon Instant Video winning an amazing 6 achievements, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood picking up an amazing 8 achievements, Worms Battlegrounds picking up 4 achievements, WATCH_DOGS™ acquiring 5 achievements, Kinect Sports Rivals acquiring 2 achievements, Twitch picking up 1 achievement, The Amazing Spider-Man 2™ acquiring an amazing 19 achievements, Wolfenstein: The New Order gaining an amazing 24 achievements, Titanfall gaining an amazing 12 achievements, Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag acquiring an amazing 30 achievements, 4oD winning an amazing 8 achievements, Trials Fusion winning 3 achievements, Forza Motorsport 5 gaining an amazing 28 achievements, YouTube gaining 2 achievements, Killer Instinct picking up an amazing 28 achievements, Thief acquiring an amazing 6 achievements, METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES acquiring 1 achievement, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare picking up 5 achievements, Rayman Legends acquiring an amazing 18 achievements, The LEGO Movie Videogame winning an amazing 14 achievements, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition winning an amazing 31 achievements, Xbox Fitness acquiring 1 achievement, Zoo Tycoon gaining an amazing 11 achievements, Battlefield 4 acquiring an amazing 19 achievements, Halo: Spartan Assault picking up an amazing 11 achievements, Demand 5 picking up 3 achievements, Ryse: Son of Rome acquiring an amazing 31 achievements, Need for Speed Rivals picking up 2 achievements, Machinima picking up 4 achievements, Peggle 2 winning an amazing 13 achievements, NBA 2K14 picking up 1 achievement, Call of Duty®: Ghosts picking up an amazing 43 achievements, Xbox Video picking up 2 achievements, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes acquiring an amazing 7 achievements, NBA LIVE 14 gaining 1 achievement, FIFA 14 winning 3 achievements, Xbox One gaining 1 achievement, Sniper Elite 3 winning 1 achievement on X1, DOOM on 360, as well as basked in the glow of the awesome dashboard software!

This is really good stuff... the more we play, the more chances we have to prevent TaygetaVendetta from leaving us in the dust. Call me crazy, but that 51,957 point deficit is totally doable...

Oh, guess what? Our gamerscore challenge is going strong... If you want to see how good I'm doing, check it out! 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! Out of everyone, chrisvenn is holding on to the number 9 spot. 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 - July 19 2014

chrisvenn rocked out with 195,285 points. He played Sniper Elite 3 on X1, and that was that.

I always like to end with a little bit about chrisvenn and the ongoing gamerscore challenge status. Follow every up and down over here. 9 other competitors are racking up achievements and powering up their gamerscores, hoping to secure a victory! chrisvenn has the number 8 spot... But, there are still 2 long days left! We need to keep heading for the top! | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - July 18 2014

chrisvenn is the best... he treats me right, I treat him right. It is a good thing we have going here. Gamer score stands at 195,285. Not too shabby! That is a gain of 10 points over last time! He played Sniper Elite 3 picking up 1 achievement on X1, and then I told him to keep playing but he didn't... out of spite I think.

Oh, guess what? Our gamerscore challenge is going strong... Follow every up and down over here. 9 other people are also involved... which is madness. chrisvenn has the number 8 spot... And while we have 3 days left, let's not procrastinate. Pick up that controller and get to unlockin'! | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - July 17 2014

chrisvenn brought the pain yesterday... the good kind... the gaming kind. We are up to 195,275 points of gamerscore. Jealous? He opened up Amazon Instant Video on X1, and I think there was some random Live Marketplace browsing, but I wasn't paying attention.

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 people are mixing it up, meaning fierce competition and some creative trash talk. Out of everyone, chrisvenn is holding on to the number 9 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 - July 16 2014

I prefer to play games... but if chrisvenn needs a short break I can respect that... don't get lazy though... I'll be waiting right here!

A big shift in score is coming soon as well. chrisvenn is competing in a gamerscore challenge titled 'Auto Challenge - #103383' and looking to win big. Expect a lot of games, a lot of points, and no sleep! | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - July 15 2014

3 Processors, 512MB of RAM, custom graphics chip and multichannel surround sound all gone to waste yesterday as chrisvenn decided not to show up.

What is really bad is I thought we were starting to pull away from BearCavalryYeah and that 11,447 score... but not playing sure doesn't help the cause... | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Weekly Recap - Jul 14 2014

It is that time of the week. I got your weekly recap right here: So yeah... Last week chrisvenn showed up 4 days total and logged some serious gaming. We added 30 points of gamerscore which ain't too shabby. Getting 2 achievements can do that to you. I was there. I saw it!

I feel a little spoiled getting 2 new games to play in the same week. With titles like Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, and TV, who can go wrong with that right? Oh, and from what I remember, chrisvenn's favorite game last week was Amazon Instant Video. He played it on 4 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 - July 14 2014

Another day, another opportunity wasted to play games... Maybe tomorrow chrisvenn? Maybe? Don't leave me hanging dude!

Also, remember the challenge that chrisvenn was participating in? It has wrapped up. chrisvenn didn't manage to get the win... but I guess number 8 is better than number LAST!!... wait... maybe we are last? How many people are in this thing? Can I count? So, no sense crying over this one... climb back on the horse chrisvenn... giddy-up... | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - July 13 2014

chrisvenn seemed really excited to play yesterday. Our current gamerscore is 195,275 . He opened up Amazon Instant Video on X1, and I think there was some random Live Marketplace browsing, but I wasn't paying attention.

chrisvenn's Xbox - July 11 2014

My power supply almost exploded! chrisvenn turned on the juice and we did some serious gaming! 195,275 points of total gamerscore is pretty good. Admit it. He opened up Amazon Instant Video on X1, and before I even realized it, he was finished and I was sad.

chrisvenn's Xbox - July 10 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 195,275 points. That is a boost of 30 points over last time! He played Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition winning 1 achievement, Amazon Instant Video, Twitch on X1, Walking Dead: Season 2 gaining 2 achievements on 360, and then chrisvenn developed a funny twitch and went to try and sleep it off or something. Crazy humans...

Good thing chrisvenn and I got some play time in! Every day we play is another opportunity to catch up to Bomber37 and that 346,165 gamerscore!

I also want to mention/remind you that chrisvenn is participating in a pretty slamming gamerscore challenge. If you want to follow along at home, catch the action here. There are 9 other people rocking out on this thing which keeps it fun. Out of everyone, chrisvenn is holding on to the number 5 spot. And while we have 4 days left, let's not procrastinate.

chrisvenn's Xbox - July 8 2014

What time is it? Time to tell you about yesterday when chrisvenn came to play. Gamer score stands at 195,135. He rocked out to Amazon Instant Video on X1, and I thought chrisvenn injured himself in the process... but I was wrong... he lives to fight another day! | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Weekly Recap - Jul 7 2014

Another week, another recap... and you love me for it: If you are an Xbox, you might be jealous that chrisvenn showed up to game 2 days this last week. Happy happy joy joy! I was sort of hoping for a gamerscore bump, but that didn't materialize. Also, according to the records, chrisvenn's favorite game last week was Amazon Instant Video. He played it on 2 of the days.

So that's it for now. It was a good week. On to the next one. | permalink | leave comment

What time is it? Time to tell you about yesterday when chrisvenn came to play. Gamer score stands at 195,135. He rocked out to Amazon Instant Video on X1, and oh... don't tell chrisvenn this, but I have been dumbing down the AI lately... I am hoping it keeps him coming back for more! MUHAHAHA!

Oh hey... also... I can't even believe that the gamerscore challenge formerly-known-as 'Auto Challenge - #103055' is over. Those 5 days flew by in a whirlwind of achievements and trash talk. Despite 5 days and nights of gaming goodness though, we couldn't take the lead and ended up finishing at number 9. Lucky for us, we can jump right into another challenge and compete for a bigger win. Plus, it just means more time spent on our favorite games and a bigger gamerscore! I guess we won something after all! | permalink | leave comment

This is really good stuff... the more we play, the more chances we have to leave BearCavalryYeah in the dust. Call me crazy, but a 183,688 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. If you are curious, follow along 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!

chrisvenn's Xbox - July 4 2014

Dogs age seven years to a human's one. For consoles the ratio is more like FIFTEEN to one. When you have been ignored for 4 days, these are the kinds of things you think about.

Oh BTW, did you know that chrisvenn is competing in a gamerscore challenge?
