chrisvenn's Xbox - October 31 2014

I was all geared up and ready to do some rocking and rolling when chrisvenn said that they were going to go bake a cake... he never came back... I'm thinking the cake was a lie.

Oh hey, time for the gamerscore challenge update too... chrisvenn still has that going on and stuff. If you want to follow along at home, catch the action here. 9 other competitors are racking up achievements and powering up their gamerscores, hoping to secure a victory! chrisvenn has the number 5 spot... 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 - October 30 2014

chrisvenn didn't show up yesterday. No big deal... catch ya on the flip side.

It is probably better that chrisvenn didn't play yesterday... it gives IronLung2013 an opportunity to add to that 95,629 gamerscore and catch up to us! Booooo!

Oh, guess what? Our gamerscore challenge is going strong... If you are curious, follow along over here. 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. Out of all those people, chrisvenn is currently parked at number 4. 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 - October 29 2014

chrisvenn was a no-show yesterday... I ended up hanging out, collecting some dust and feeling sorry for myself. Speaking of dust, I could use a rub down. A clean Xbox is a happy Xbox.

Also, I fully expect to become one happy 360 as chrisvenn is set to begin a gamerscore challenge aptly titled 'Auto Challenge - #105854' today. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - October 28 2014

While chrisvenn was away yesterday, I was sitting here alone counting up all the achievement points he was missing out on! If you don't play me, you can't increase your score. Remember that! | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Weekly Recap - Oct 27 2014

Ok, here it is... your weekly recap of gaming: I told chrisvenn that 4 days of playing would be ideal... so last week there was some extra effort to get us there. Good job! We added 190 points of gamerscore. Points are good! Those 2 achievements were worth it I guess!

I convinced chrisvenn to try 3 games last week: D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die, GTA: San Andreas, and TrueAchievements. It was a mix of good and bad. Also, I think chrisvenn's favorite game last week was Middle-earthâ„¢: Shadow of Mordorâ„¢. He played it on 2 of the days.

And that's it... short and sweet, just like my power cord. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - October 27 2014

chrisvenn decided to ride the gamer-train yesterday. I will admit it... I was happy. What is the gamer score? 197,240 is what it is! That is a gain of 30 points over last time! He rallied GTA: San Andreas acquiring 2 achievements on 360, and then... yeah... that was awesome...

Oh hey... also... I can't even believe that the gamerscore challenge formerly-known-as 'Auto Challenge - #105688' is over. Those 5 days flew by in a whirlwind of achievements and trash talk. chrisvenn didn't manage to get the win... but I guess number 4 is better than number LAST!!... wait... maybe we are last? How many people are in this thing? Can I count? 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

chrisvenn's Xbox - October 26 2014

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

If you want to see how good I'm doing, check it out! 9 other people are mixing it up, meaning fierce competition and some creative trash talk. Currently chrisvenn is holding the number 3 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 - October 25 2014

chrisvenn must have a life, because he didn't game yesterday...

It is probably better that chrisvenn didn't play yesterday... it gives twistedsymphony an opportunity to add to that 109,462 gamerscore and catch up to us! Booooo!

I always like to end with a little bit about chrisvenn and the ongoing gamerscore challenge status. 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. Currently chrisvenn is hanging on to 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

I told chrisvenn 'Hey man, it is time to play games' and YAY! he listened! Gamer score is 197,210. That is a boost of 85 points over last time! He opened up TrueAchievements acquiring an amazing 6 achievements, Forza Hub, Forza Horizon 2 acquiring 3 achievements, Middle-earthâ„¢: Shadow of Mordorâ„¢ gaining 2 achievements, Killer Instinct on X1, and oh... don't tell chrisvenn this, but I have been getting in a little video chat in the off-hours. Booyah!

chrisvenn's Xbox - October 23 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...

chrisvenn's Xbox - October 22 2014

chrisvenn showed up yesterday ready to dominate. Total gamer score stands at 197,125. That is a boost of 75 points over last time! He played D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die picking up 3 achievements, Killer Instinct acquiring 1 achievement, Middle-earthâ„¢: Shadow of Mordorâ„¢ gaining 2 achievements on X1, as well as stared off into space... thinking about the one that got away.

Also, I fully expect to become one happy 360 as chrisvenn is set to begin a gamerscore challenge aptly titled 'Auto Challenge - #105688' today. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - October 21 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 197,050. He rocked out to Amazon Instant Video on X1, and then I came out of my trance and realized it was all over. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Weekly Recap - Oct 20 2014

My eye! It burns! A weekly recap is all that can save me! Here goes: So yeah... Last week chrisvenn showed up 4 days total and logged some serious gaming. We added 110 points of gamerscore. Points are good!

NEW GAMES! NEW GAMES! NEW GAMES! 2 of them to be exact! , and Vine. I want more! I want more! Also, according to the records, chrisvenn's favorite game last week was Middle-earthâ„¢: Shadow of Mordorâ„¢. He played it on 3 of the days.

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

chrisvenn's Xbox - October 20 2014

Like I always tell chrisvenn, gaming is like money... the more the better! So fill up my pockets baby! All that matters is that our gamerscore is 197,050 points and on the rise. He rocked out to Forza Horizon 2 on X1, as well as stared off into space... thinking about the one that got away.

Good thing chrisvenn and I got some play time in! Every day we play is another opportunity to pull away from d1storted and that 69,020 gamerscore!

Also, remember the challenge that chrisvenn was participating in? It has wrapped up. We scraped and clawed our way through a bunch of achievements, but fell shy of the lead, landing at number 7. So, no sense crying over this one... climb back on the horse chrisvenn... giddy-up... | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - October 19 2014

chrisvenn hit the switch and fired me up yesterday... his total gamer score is 197,050.That is a gain of 60 points over last time! Another day, another milestone. The 197,000 barrier has fallen! He played Middle-earthâ„¢: Shadow of Mordorâ„¢ winning 2 achievements, Amazon Instant Video on X1, and afterwards, there were some awkward stares and silence... you know how it is.

Oh BTW, did you know that chrisvenn 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. 9 other people are also involved... which is madness. Out of all those people, chrisvenn is currently parked at number 3. We only have one day to pull out a win... polish off those games and get to work. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - October 18 2014

chrisvenn, there are 86,400 seconds in a day and you couldn't find a few to spend with me? Lame.

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. 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. There are 9 other people involved. I didn't know chrisvenn even knew that many people. Out of everyone, chrisvenn is holding on to 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 - October 17 2014

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...

chrisvenn's Xbox - October 15 2014

There are people out there who think video games are violent. But after chrisvenn played yesterday with his gamerscore of 196,990 points, there wasn't any violence at all. A little drooling maybe but definitely no violence. That is a gain of 50 points over last time! He rocked out to Vine, Forza Hub, Middle-earthâ„¢: Shadow of Mordorâ„¢ acquiring 2 achievements 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!

This is really good stuff... the more we play, the more chances we have to leave mattglynn in the dust. Call me crazy, but a 129,547 point cushion is not nearly enough for me...

Also, I fully expect to become one happy 360 as chrisvenn is set to begin a gamerscore challenge aptly titled 'Auto Challenge - #105517' today. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Xbox - October 14 2014

I didn't think I would see him yesterday, but chrisvenn was back and ready for action. Total gamer score is 196,940 points. He played Middle-earthâ„¢: Shadow of Mordorâ„¢ on X1, and then he tried to watch TV, but I killed the power... If I can't have him, no one can. | permalink | leave comment

chrisvenn's Weekly Recap - Oct 13 2014

My eye! It burns! A weekly recap is all that can save me! Here goes: I told chrisvenn that 5 days of playing would be ideal... so last week there was some extra effort to get us there. Good job! We really made it happen on the gamerscore front. An increase of 720 points makes for a nice bounty.

In the 'new game' category, I only have one to talk about... Chariot. I wasn't even going to mention it, but I figured my readers might get mad. So there it is. Oh, and from what I remember, chrisvenn's favorite game last week was Amazon Instant Video. He played it on 3 of the days.

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

chrisvenn's Xbox - October 13 2014

chrisvenn is awesome! Just plain radical even... I say that because we played some games. Did you know our gamerscore is 196,940? That is a gain of 260 points over last time! He rallied Middle-earthâ„¢: Shadow of Mordorâ„¢ winning an amazing 11 achievements on X1, as well as checked out what was new in the live marketplace.

Oh hey... also... I can't even believe that the gamerscore challenge formerly-known-as 'Auto Challenge - #105346' is over. Those 5 days flew by in a whirlwind of achievements and trash talk. 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! 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 - October 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 196,680 and counting! That is a boost of 55 points over last time! He opened up Middle-earthâ„¢: Shadow of Mordorâ„¢ picking up 4 achievements, YouTube on X1, and almost cried with joy. I have that effect on people.

Oh BTW, did you know that chrisvenn is competing in a gamerscore challenge? Bookmark this link now and check out all the action! 9 other people are also involved... which is madness. chrisvenn has the number 2 spot... 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

chrisvenn's Xbox - October 11 2014

chrisvenn was looking kind of weepy... luckily I was here to 'console' him... heh heh get it? Our gamerscore is fan-frickin-tastic 196,625 . That is a profit of 65 points over last time! He rocked out to Project Spark picking up an amazing 11 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! There are 9 other people playing along as well... they better watch out. Currently chrisvenn is holding the number 2 spot in the group... decent. However there are still 2 days left to score achievement glory. Let's get to the top of that challenge board! Go! | permalink | leave comment
