chrisvenn's Xbox - August 22 2014

I was all ready to write in my blog about how great of a time I had playing with chrisvenn yesterday, but then my plans changed when I was ignored... all... freaking... day...

And..... guess what? I will reveal the latest gamerscore challenge status to you as a matter of public record. Here is the link: check it. There are 9 other people in the chase as well... so it's pretty cool. Out of all those people, chrisvenn is currently parked at number 7. But, there are still 3 long days left! We need to keep heading for the top! | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - August 21 2014

Yesterday was a triumph! I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS. It's hard to overstate my satisfaction with chrisvenn. Data indicates that gamerscore stands at an always improving 195,325. He rocked out to Titanfall on X1, and after that powered me down without even saying good night. I mean what the heck?

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 involved. I didn't know chrisvenn even knew that many people. Out of all those people, chrisvenn is currently parked at number 7. But, there are still 4 long days left! We need to keep heading for the top! | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - August 20 2014

Yesterday, chrisvenn decided to spend his time elsewhere... machines don't feel lonely... really we don't...

What is really bad is I thought we were starting to pull away from d1storted and that 68,805 score... but not playing sure doesn't help the cause...

Also, I fully expect to become one happy 360 as chrisvenn is set to begin a gamerscore challenge aptly titled 'Auto Challenge - #104190' today. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - August 19 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 195,325. He rocked out to Titanfall on X1, and wished it would never end, but it did and that was sad. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Weekly Recap - Aug 18 2014

It is that time of the week. I got your weekly recap right here: If chrisvenn plays 2 days every week, I guess I can call this a good deal. Many Xboxes have it a lot worse. We came close to a few gamerscore opportunities, but nothing really panned out. Also, I think chrisvenn's favorite game last week was WATCH_DOGS™. He played it on 2 of the days.

I could go on and on with the stats, but that is enough. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - August 18 2014

When someone makes a mistake there is typically some kind of gift involved... Maybe I can get a new faceplate out of the missed day of gaming yesterday... It is totally like chrisvenn to do something like that.

Also, remember the challenge that chrisvenn was participating in? It has wrapped up. We may have earned an 'A' for effort in this challenge, but they don't give out very many points for effort, some... but not many... you gotta win... maybe next time! But, there is always next time I guess... A special thanks to the other 9 people in the competion. Good times. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - August 17 2014

I didn't see chrisvenn yesterday, but that is cool... I could use some personal space... Having him up in my business all the time is exhausting.

Oh, guess what? Our gamerscore challenge is going strong... Bookmark this link now and check out all the action! 9 other people are mixing it up, meaning fierce competition and some creative trash talk. chrisvenn has the number 8 spot... With only one day left though, we need to make that last big push! | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - August 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!

Oh BTW, did you know that chrisvenn is competing in a gamerscore challenge? If you want to follow along at home, catch the action here. 9 other people are also involved... which is madness. chrisvenn has the number 7 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 - August 15 2014

chrisvenn rocked out with 195,325 points. He opened up WATCH_DOGSâ„¢, Sniper Elite 3 on X1, and I think there was some random Live Marketplace browsing, but I wasn't paying attention.

What is really good is that every day played is another chance to pull away from BearCavalryYeah and that 11,447 score... Make it happen chrisvenn!!

Oh BTW, did you know that chrisvenn is competing in a gamerscore challenge? Follow every up and down over here. 9 other people are also involved... which is madness. chrisvenn has the number 6 spot... But, there are still 3 long days left!

chrisvenn's Xbox - August 14 2014

Don't worry... I'll wait... you can't game every day.

Did I mention the gamerscore challenge that chrisvenn is competing in? Check out the progress right now! There are 9 other people in the chase as well... so it's pretty cool. Out of everyone, chrisvenn is holding on to the number 5 spot. But with 4 days left and plenty of achievements out there, we've got this one in the bag. Let's make it happen. | permalink | leave comment

When someone makes a mistake there is typically some kind of gift involved... Maybe I can get a new faceplate out of the missed day of gaming yesterday... It is totally like chrisvenn to do something like that.

Oh I almost forgot to mention that chrisvenn has joined a gamerscore challenge titled 'Auto Challenge - #104030'. Go check it out and follow along. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - August 12 2014

I was about to feel sorry for myself, until chrisvenn showed up and made my day with a little gaming! Our gamerscore stands at 195,325 and counting! He rallied WATCH_DOGSâ„¢, Sniper Elite 3 on X1, and... hmmm... maybe that was all... it felt like we played more games. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Weekly Recap - Aug 11 2014

It is that time of the week. I got your weekly recap right here: NOTHING HAPPENED. chrisvenn and I did not play a single day last week. Sure people get busy, but not people with an Xbox 360... at least not seven days in a row. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - August 11 2014

It says on the box that Xbox 360s require at least two hours of gaming per day. chrisvenn needs to get with the program! Ok... I lied that is not on the box... but it should be.

Hey, remember that challenge I was talking about a few days ago? The one called 'Auto Challenge - #103867'? It came to a close today. chrisvenn didn't manage to get enough points to win... we had to settle for a comfortable spot at number 8. That's ok though... at least I got into some group-action against 9 other gamers... giggidy... | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - August 10 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 5 days, these are the kinds of things you think about.

This really sucks because it gives Bomber37 a shot at widening the gap. We are still 152,260 points behind... but we can't get there if we don't play.

Oh hey, time for the gamerscore challenge update too... chrisvenn still has that going on and stuff. Let me link you to the daily updates and trash talking. There are 9 other people rocking out on this thing which keeps it fun. Currently chrisvenn is hanging on to the number 8 spot. We only have one day to pull out a win... polish off those games and get to work. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - August 9 2014

I am trying to be a patient Xbox, but it isn't working out... 4 is longer than I should have to wait for some gaming! Give it to me! I want it!

Hey, I almost forgot! The gamerscore challenge that chrisvenn is competing in is on day 2 and we're doing our best to win this thing. If you are curious, follow along over here. There are 9 other people playing along as well... they better watch out. Out of all those people, chrisvenn is currently parked at number 8. But, there are still 2 long days left! We need to keep heading for the top! | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - August 8 2014

Yesterday was one of those times chrisvenn mistook the TV remote for the controller. I mean, come on! They don't even look REMOTELY alike! HA! Ok sorry...

Oh hey, time for the gamerscore challenge update too... chrisvenn still has that going on and stuff. Don't take my word for it! See for yourself! 9 other competitors are racking up achievements and powering up their gamerscores, hoping to secure a victory! chrisvenn 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

chrisvenn's Xbox - August 7 2014

Don't worry... I'll wait... you can't game every day.

Oh and it is time for a gamerscore challenge update... listen up... Bookmark this link now and check out all the action! 9 other people are also involved... which is madness. chrisvenn has the number 5 spot... But with 4 days left and plenty of achievements out there, we've got this one in the bag. Let's make it happen. | permalink | leave comment

I didn't see chrisvenn yesterday, but that is cool... I could use some personal space... Having him up in my business all the time is exhausting.

Oh, I don't know if chrisvenn wants me to mention that he has joined a gamerscore challenge! It is called 'Auto Challenge - #103867'. Go check it. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - August 5 2014

chrisvenn was a no show... but you can't game every day. I actually enjoyed the rest... although I am ready for more. Bring it please.

What is really bad is I thought we were starting to pull away from GoPurdueBoilers and that 55,944 score... but not playing sure doesn't help the cause... | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Weekly Recap - Aug 4 2014

It is that time of the week. I got your weekly recap right here: 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. Our gamerscore saw a 40 point boost which is good.

I was also pretty happy about the 2 new games this last week. They were (in no particular order) GoPro Channel, and Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut. I liked them. I think chrisvenn did too. Also, by my expert calculations, chrisvenn's favorite game last week was WATCH_DOGS™. 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 - August 4 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 195,325 points. That is an increase of 40 points over last time! He played WATCH_DOGSâ„¢ winning 2 achievements, Trials Fusion on X1, Walking Dead: Season 2 on 360, as well as checked out what was new in the live marketplace.

Oh also, It's all over man! ALL OVER! The gamerscore challenge called 'Auto Challenge - #103703' is through after an intense 5 days. Unfortunately, we came up short, ending up in the number 5 spot. You know what though? My father, the original Xbox, always said, 'Another day, another challenge.' We'll get 'em next time, chrisvenn! | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - August 3 2014

My power supply almost exploded! chrisvenn turned on the juice and we did some serious gaming! 195,285 points of total gamerscore is pretty good. Admit it. He opened up WATCH_DOGSâ„¢ on X1, 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 chrisvenn!

I always like to end with a little bit about chrisvenn and the ongoing gamerscore challenge status. Here is the link: check it. 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. Currently chrisvenn is holding the number 6 spot in the group... decent. A great man once said 'Don't call it a comeback!' Though, I suppose you might call it a comeback considering there is only one day left to pull this out! | permalink | leave comment
