Almost there

While looking through my card I noticed a ton of games that are almost completed. I just need a few achievements . I like moving on to new games, but I do get in the mood to go back and complete my half baked games.

The closer than close list. 1 achievement needed to complete the game 100%

American Wasteland- Complete the game 100%

Japanese version of Import Tuner Challenge-Defeated ???

Smackdown vs Raw 2007- In ring Technician

Jetpack Refueled- You can stop now!

Assault Heroes- Lair Slayer

Live Score Tracker- Log in on a Saturday game

Big Bumping- Mine

Armored core 4- Mission Rank SS

Gyruss- Reaching Earth

Time Pilot- Perfection

Splinter Cell Double Agent-Complete the game on hard

Saints Row 2- 30 online badges

Sonic- Fast Win

Street Trace NYC- 8 player award

Streets of Rage 2- High Score of 800k

Super Puzzle Fighter HD Remix- 7 chain combo

The Club- 10,001 kills

Tiger woods 08- Accumulate 5,000 gamernet points

Unreal Tournament 3- Like the back of my hand

Bulletwitch-Complete hell Difficulty (1 pt achievement) I have two different versions at 999.

Heavy Weapon- Freedom's Last Stand

Paperboy- Complete an easy week

Fifa world cup 2006- Complete all challenges

Catan-1,000 total victory points

Brothers in Arms- Play the game on September 17th

Astropop- Brick Grinder

Bioshock- Brass Balls DLC achievement

Bionic heroes- 100% game completion

Aegis Wing- Ace achievement

Wartech- Play 1,000 ranked games

Forza 2- Earn 1,000,000 Online credits

Those 32 achievement would give me another 32 completed games. I didn't include some games that added content where I only need 1 achievement for the original 1,000 or 200. On top of that, I have even more games where I just need 2 or 3 achievements. Easily 50 games or better.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Years

My Christmas wish: For the Lakers to beat down the Celtics.

I hope everyone gets what they wished for.

Worst of 08

The very worst games of 2008

10. Conflict: Denied Ops

There are lots of things that make this one bad. What gets me is playing co-op on easy difficulty is harder than playing it on extreme difficulty by yourself.

9. Disney Sing it

Maybe it isn't such a bad game, but I'm not ten years old. I played this one strictly for the achievements. Good thing it is a quick game.

8. Turning Point

The multiplayer is laggy with two people playing, need I say more? Single player is crap also, the design choices are terrible. If you need help with this game contact Omega Deez, he is the Turning Point Pimp.

7. Smash Court Tennis 3

I love me some tennis games. I like every tennis game that has been released on the 360, even Sega superstars. This one, not so much. It's just a terrible looking and controlling game.

6. Alaskan Storm

This game is the most boring on the list. Imagine driving a crab fishing boat as your real life job, now imagine doing the same thing with your xbox 360 controller. Yeah, not so fun.

5. Hell Boy TSoE

Not much to say besides it's really glitchy with horrible combat. Just grapple would you!

4. NFL Tour

A downgrade from NFL Blitz. It's just way too simple and the funny thing is, this would've been a good arcade game. People really would've said that, higher your standards for arcade games in 2009.

3. Rapala Fishing Frenzy

I can go fishing anytime, I can't kill an army of Locust. DO THE REAL THING.

2. Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom

One of the worst co-op games known to man. This game might have thousands of weapons, but who cares if using them isn't fun? Why does the last level have to look like baby back ribs? Good thing the development team wasn't eating Escargot while creating this game, it would've been a huge slide to the last boss which is a giant meat ball. I can't make this stuff up.

1. Jumper

I expected this much from a fruity Anakin Skywalker. Samuel L. Jackson, you're better than that man. Now that I think about it, you should've just stayed in that sharks belly to save the world for your blond hair. You can run through this game in a couple of hours, but you will not enjoy yourself, guaranteed. That should be quoted on the box.

Worst Arcade Game:
SpongBob UnderPants

Biggest Disappointments:
Mercenaries 2
Brothers in Arms: HH
NBA Ballers
ET: Quake Wars
Rez HD

Notables for worst game:
Alone in the Dark, Summer Athletics, Idol Master, Karaoke Revolution, NFL Head Coach 09, Face breaker, Dark Messiah, Iron man, Fifa Street 3, Americas Army: True Soldiers, Kengo: Legend of the 9, Monster Jam.

Best of 08

The very best games I've had the pleasure of playing in 2008.

10. Lost Odyssey

Granted I've only completed the first disc. This game is HUGE, 4 discs and 60+ hours of gameplay. The story is great and the overall quality is amazing. It really is 4 games in 1.

9. Left 4 Dead

4 player co-op any way you want it with hordes of zombies. Even though it is very short, the layout of the enemies is randomized each time. Great for pick up and play moments.

8. Rock Band 2

If it ain't broke don't fix it. 82 songs on the disc and boatloads of songs to purchase from the store. It has online tour this time too.

7. Burnout Paradise

Smashing and crashing around an open world. It's no Test Drive Unlimited experience, but it is very satisfying. Very very addicting when trying to complete the game 100%. The co-op goals were weak.

6. Fable II

Maybe I enjoyed farting in a little boys face because I never played Fable 1. Just playing around in the fable world is were the game shines. The graphics, sound, and presentation is really great.

5. Grand Theft Auto 4

I enjoyed the story and how it unfolded. The Brucie missions were the best and that was early on, which kinda killed the flow. I loved the new graphics and driving mechanics, but the world as a whole seemed empty. Needed co-op play and better multiplayer.

4. Saints Row 2

More Grand Theft Auto than Grand Theft Auto. The fun factor is off the charts. The story ain't too bad either, considering I thought it would be cheesy. Co-op play is a blast and done right. Multiplayer is slightly better than GTA 4, not nearly as laggy either. The taunts are awesome, buy this game just for the taunts.

3. Battlefield: Bad Company

Single player is not the main attraction. It's the amazing MP experience. The levels are unbelievable, just massive. Killing someone on the other side of a wall by blowing that wall up is nuts. Just adding destructibility to a shooter is a big deal for me. I love this game.

2. Gears of War 2

Co-op campaign is just amazing, I enjoyed every second of it. The amount of stuff going on is unrivaled. Horde mode will be copied by everyone. The multiplayer is all around better, just some glitches holding it back. BETA EPIC!!!!!!!

1. Fallout 3

It's not even close. This game wins hands down. It is better than oblivion. It crushes everything single player wise on the 360. Yes, even Bioshock. I always think of ways that a game could be better. I don't think that way with this one. Maybe it could use co-op, but then again, it is meant to be your world.

Best Arcade game: Castle Crashers

4 player co-op. The art style is fabulous. Good humor and good length. Totally worth the 1,200 Microsoft points.

Best Multiplayer Game: Battlefield: Bad Company

This one was a surprise to me. I thought BF:MC multiplayer was crap. I hated the controls and how it felt aiming. This game has dedicated servers and huge maps. It's more times than not, lag free. Making your own doors is really satisfying, you have to know your surroundings to survive.

Notables: Too Human, NBA2k9, Tiger Woods 09, and Soul Calibur IV.

Some games I missed out on that may have made this list: Mirror's Edge, Dead Space, Prince of Persia, Ninja Gaiden 2, Devil May Cry 4, Call of Duty: World at War

Bloggy Bloggerson

The twin (impostor) is no more. He got reset pretty swiftly. Good for him, now he doesn't have to check out my avatars clothing every hour. That wouldn't be much fun.

It's been a slow couple of weeks for me as far as gamerscore gain goes. I've been playing older stuff and trying to get through the snore bore that is Silent Hill Homecoming. Don't get me wrong, it is not a bad game, just not my style. It's a tad slow paced and the combat is dull. I just don't know what to play lately, I think that is my problem. I should just play fallout 3 and get lost in that for a good week.

I want to get my gamerscore completion percentage up a bit higher. 90% before I reach 300k sounds about right. I'm currently at 87.41%. Not too shabby, but 90% is my goal for now. Sadly I'll have to work on some of my sour piƱatas to get that done.

If you have any interest in looking at what I've done on a daily basis from 30,000 to now check this out.


You are the type who loves to score,
not a few points, but more and more
Renting easy kid games from the store,
you know you are an achievement whore.

Playing games all night and day,
you dream of reaching 100k,
displaying your score for all to see,
yet you'll never come close to Stallion83.

When seeking that goal, what can one do,
but load up a copy of My Horse and Me 2,
or play through the shooter that has you seduced,
while you troll the forums for a partner to boost.

If you want that score bad, and don't mind some hell,
go grab your buddies and join a GSL
and pop points till you fall over dead
in your unending quest for more "nerd cred."

But don't blame me if your social life sees a depression,
your sex life a total recession.
Choosing what to play with ever less discretion,
it may be time for a new obsession.

Funny stuff ThrawnOmega

Until next time.

Double Mint Twins

There is no need to refresh your page or get your eyes examined. What you see is correct. I finally got the #1 spot on mygamercard sometime last week which in all honesty doesn't matter much to me. It lasted a whole 3 days or so. I guess someone thinks it does mean the world to me. They decided to basically copy my gamertag. motto, bio, avatar, the works. Stallion83 with 266k is me, StaIlion83 with 295k is the impostor, notice the capital I instead of an L.

Why is someone doing this? I really have no clue. I do know they cheated somehow, but I don't really know what the original tag was, how many points they had, etc. Theories anyone?

The only conclusion I have is that someone is wasting their time and effort to bother me. Seriously, I could care less. They will be dealt with at some point, then the next impostor will appear. It's as inevitable as another Saw movie.

Cheaters get stuffed...not from turkey

Microsoft recently brought the thunder and reset many gamers that cheated their way to fame, fortune, and glory. Which by default put me in the #1 spot. I guess this makes me more universally known as #1 since mygamercard is undoubtedly the most viewed leaderboard in the world. This might be news to some, but I've been #1 for over two years, again, by default. It's great to see Microsoft not allowing people to river dance all over the gamerscore system.

Some people slipped through the cracks and didn't get reset when they clearly deserve to be, but the top 2 is correct. I would like to see everyone taken care of eventually.

Have a wonderful cheat free Thanksgiving! You wouldn't want to be stuffed like that turkey now, would you?

*Note* No gamers were hurt getting stuffed by Microsoft...just hearts and objects. The cheaters will recover while gaining PS3 trophies.

Stallion83 talk plucked from the interwebs

A lot of crap is said about me, good and bad. Whatever the case, I find it pretty interesting to read. A good way to find the smack talk is to simply google your name. Here is a few morsels I found around various corners of the interwebs. I simply googled Stallion83.

The great impersonation I can't believe someone spent 8 bucks to try and make me look like a cheater.

The UK Major Nelson (aceybongos) had some interesting stuff to say.
This guy is a fraud. I don't have a eurogamer account.
Now this is pretty funny, not only does this guy list facts, he draws me using paint brush. Next Pablo Picasso imo. Best thing about the paint brush drawing. "WARNING. Stallion83 has been slimed down to fit your computer."

What happens when Microsoft takes a bunch of gamers scores down to 0? They drag me and others in the mud. No comments were made by me, just more impersonations. From what I remember, it's pretty entertaining to read the comments.

Satelitte guys talking about my 100k. Best quote from comments. "I've got to see a picture of this guy! 400lb jones on the couch with his 300lb girlfriend attached to his hip."

Another phony I'm guessing there are a lot of these or something similar.

There are many instances where someone on any given forum will ask who is number one in gamerscore or achievements. A lot of times people point towards me. Then there is always the negative reply from someone else in the thread.

Orville Redenbacher is alive. 10,000 buttery achievements popped!

Today I finally hit the 10,000 total achievement mark. I accomplished this around 3am EST while playing Gears of War 2. I captured my tenth meat flag in a submission public match for the Beat the Meat flag achievement. Achievement unlocked! 10,000 achievements!
10,000 is a lot of poppin, almost took me 3 years. 2 years 359 days to be exact.
Thanks to all my friends on XBL for all the fun times. If it wasn't for xbl, I probably never would've been motivated enough to do such a thing.
Last but not least, thanks to Franklin, I pwned your ass for my 10,000th.

Might as well face it, you're addicted to Gears.

All I want to do at this moment in time is play Gears. I dream about Gears, I wake up and eat my Gears of War cereal, and drink my coffee out of a Gears of War mug. I even play with my Gears of War action figures in the bathtub.

Gears 2 is so much better than the first. The c0-op campaign is perfect in my honest opinion. The amount of stuff going on is something I have never seen before in a video game. I'm already itching to go back and play it on insane. I did it on hardcore first and that was fairly easy. It lived up to bigger, badder and more bad ass tag line and then some.

On the multi player side gears 2 trumps gears 1 in every single way. Matchmaking is fast and I like the way the voting system is handled. All of the modes are fun, and the maps are all good too. The host advantage that plagued Gears 1 seems to be nonexistent. All or most of the issues from the first have been taking care of. I do have a couple of complaints about the multi player though. Getting tossed to the floor by smoke grenades is just stupid. Do no like, do not want. Chainsaw duels are decided by who mashes the B button the fastest. I don't like that either, isn't there a better way? I hate getting chainsawed when I clearly shoot someone in the face with the shotgun. I thought that was suppose to stop a chainsaw nub cookie in his tracks? Last, they need an easy mute feature or voice option for team only voice. I shouldn't have to be ear raped when I play public matches. If they take the chainsaw out of gears, the game would be a lot better. It's cool for single player, but gimps the multi player balance. Private matches without chainsaws is the future of gears or a chainsaw free play list. I would be all over that.

Horde mode is very fun also. I can see myself playing that on the different difficulties over the next couple of months.

Gears 2 is by far the best game I have played it a long time. It has to be one of the best games I have ever played. At least top 10.

Goodbye October, Hello Gears

Time to dust off the chainsaw because Gears of War 2 is less than a week away. I cannot believe it is almost here, I'm really excited about it. November is going to be a huge month for gamers and even bigger for me since I missed some really good games at the end of October. Before I look ahead, I want to talk about October for a moment.

Last month I played a lot of stuff. Here is what I believe was the best and worst.

Best game I played October: Saints Row 2
Reason: The co-op mode is a real treat. It was done right unlike most co-op games where the game only dishes out a single save on the hosts xbox. If you are deciding between GTA4 or Saints Row 2 and you plan on doing them single player only, I would give a slight advantage to GTA4. I personally had more fun with Saints Row 2 solely because of co-op. The next GTA needs co-op to be the complete package. Be warned though, if you want to get all achievements in Saints Row 2, make sure you and your partner start from the very beginning in co-op. It will also take at least 50 hours to get a full 1,000. NOTE: I didn't play Fable 2, Dead Space, or Fallout 3 in October. :(

Worst game I played in October: Alaskan Storm
Reason: This game is sooo bad, I'd rather tightrope walk over a swamp with chicken hanging around my neck. You drop in pots(cages) around a fairly vast ocean, then you come back and pick them up hoping for large quantities of crab. Seriously, that's all you do, for hours, upon hours. Don't make the same mistake I did by putting this in your 360. I'll have to force feed this one down like a bad pill.

Looking ahead to November.

Lots of new games to look forward to in November.

Gears of War 2, Mirror's Edge (try the demo, it is very unique. It will need varied environments to be a classic), Banzo Kazooie, Call of Duty, and Left 4 Dead to name a few. In a couple of weeks we will see the release of the new dashboard. I don't mind something fresh, it will be something to tinker with. I can't wait for party chat, that is the best thing coming out of the NXE. It should be a great month for all xbox gamers.

Hide! There are zombies out there!

I want to wish everybody a safe and happy Halloween. I wont be doing anything exciting. I'll probably just lay back and watch a few scary movies and hit up some mini twix bars. I might pop in some Silent Hill if I get in the mood. My egging days are way behind me. I remember one year back in high school I egged this fools house. I was very unlucky because a cop was patrolling the neighborhood at the time. He started chasing me so I had to run into the woods. I ran for miles in the dark. I fell into a huge ditch that was at least 15 feet deep, ran into barb wire fences and brier patches. I was all beat up, but I made it home safely, can't say the same for the clothing I was wearing. Before you judge, the guys house I egged was a huge prick. Think Brucie from GTA4 in high school. Anybody reading this would want to punch his lights out. Do you know of any good scary movies I should check out? Leave me a comment.

Only a few survivors

Tuesday was the day I released most of my prepped/stacked achievements that I was saving for a GSL that was prematurely canceled due to fear. I gained a total of 4,530 gamerscore points and 142 achievements. I would've easily topped the 6,000 point mark if I would've saved some easy stuff that I did Saturday night and Monday. It was by far the best day I've had as far as gaining achievements goes. I encountered a few road blocks along the way. My cricket prepped stack didn't want to unlock for some reason.If you have any problems sleeping at night, don't spend money on expensive doctor bills or pills, just buy cricket. Seriously, save yourself some coin, if you are an achievement whore that is. I also came across a weird achievement glitch. If you look on or just take a look at my profile on your xbox, it will say I have 980 in idol master(The game title that you don't understand) When I click view games within my guide it says I have all 48 achievements. When I go to the achievement page within the dashboard it says I have all the achievements and I have the picture for the one I'm missing on Even the info about what game is loaded in the disc tray says I have 1,000 of 1,000. If you know anything about this type of glitch, let me know. I don't think this is a game specific glitch either. Here is a good report of what I did Tuesday.

I had a few goals for this week listed in my last blog. Here is my progress so far.

Goal 1: 10,000 points
Progress: Need 3,545 more
Fate of this goal: I have 4 days left so I should easily get this done.

Goal 2: Complete 10 games
Completed 6: Earth Defense Force, American Idol Encore, TNA Impact (I told you shark boys days were numbered) NBA Live 09, Lego Batman, & Idol Master
Fate of this goal: I'll probably get this also. I have madden sitting here, I only need 2 achievements in force unleashed and 3 in Fishing Frenzy.

Goal 3: Get to 10,0000 total achievements which I needed 415 to begin the week
Progress: I'm sitting on 9,782 achievements, 218 to go.
Fate of this goal: This one will be tough, I probably bit off more than I can chew.

Possibility of reaching all goals. I'm going with a 50% chance, it is hard to balance all three.

Time to unleash some hurtin' bombs!

I haven't completed a single game since September 25th due to the gamerscore league I was in. This upcoming week is make up time. I have a few goals in mind, three to be exact. Monday through Sunday I want to complete 10 games, while gaining 10,000 gamerscore points, and getting 415 achievements. That would put me at 10,000 total achievements. I have no idea if I can do all of this in just 7 days but this will be my big push before I get sucked into Gears of War 2. Tuesday will probably be the biggest day of all. Yes, I am a crazy mo fo.

I picked this video because I started building my hurtin' bombs 5 weeks ago. I had to counter attack the speed of a player with a lower gamerscore than me. So, with my 250k score, I am basically old Rocky and need hurtin' bombs to compete in any gamerscore leagues.

We're gonna need a bigger boat

Yesterday I decided to go for the previously glitched achievement in TNA impact. The achievement is for beating every character on the roster with the Shark Boy. The problem is once you finish career mode, you still need 150,000 style points to unlock one of the characters you need to beat. I have no idea why I chose to do this instead of playing one of the other 15 games I have sitting here. I guess it's something about this ass clown. Maybe it's his super neat-o outfit that undoubtablely gets him all the ladies. Since when did wrestling shows, federations, or whatever you call them start recruiting mascots from sea world? What's next, Donald Daddy?

I ended up falling 50,000 style points short today. Maybe tomorrow I will get it done but Shark Boys days are numbered.

Head to Head Gamerscore League Season 4 over at consoleheroes comes to a screeching hault in day two of the playoffs.

The commissioner of the league decided to end the event due to arguments within the forums. Before he came to that decision, my teammate Majinfro was taken out of the line-up and all of his points were forfeited for the entire match. For what? For arguing a rule, that may have been bent. Majinfro didn't bend any rules, the other team may or may not have. They came up with a better solution of docking MajinFro 1,500 gamerscore points. WRONG! There was no need to end it, there was no need to dock any gamers, any points. I just can't believe how it all went down and was handled.

So, 7 weeks down the drain. Don't get me wrong, I had a lot of fun for the first 7, but without the payoff it was a failure. There is no question The MachiNe Team would've won it all. Cru x360a was supplying four of us with a ton of games. Thanks CRU! I was prepping points for about 5 weeks. My teammates were doing the same. Ex. I have Earth Defense Force almost done, just need to beat the last level on inferno for 500 points. 10 mins, 500 points. The last time I counted I had roughly a 5,000 point stack. The first day of the finals I would've scored somewhere between 5-6 thousand points and my teammates would've been right there with me. I'll probably drop a lot of my points this tuesday.

I like consoleheroes and I want them to grow into a nice big site. I just can't recommend their GSL to anybody. I don't think anyone could ever convince me it is a good one since it suddenly ended, at the very end.

Yo Adrian! I did it. 250,000

I finally hit the 250,00 gamerscore milestone today. It is a mark I've been wanting to hit for a while. I said back when I hit 200,000 that I wanted to get 250,000 before Gears of War 2. A Quarter of a million is a lot, but it is still only 1/4 of my goal. I wish I could've hit it on the nose, oh well, mabye next time. I can't really worry about it since I am at war in a gamerscore league battle.

The achievement that put me over the top was from Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm.
Perfect Positioning:Finished a Crowded Harbor Mission without any Collisions

Now is the steady climb to 300k. I have no idea how long it will take me, but it's something I have my sights set on.

250k=9,542 achievements

I got my 360 on launch day which is 1,065 days ago. That means on average I unlock 8.95 achievements per day. NUTS!

Your gonna eat lightning, and your gonna crap thunder!

MachiNe Team makes the playoffs in GSL season 4 over at consoleheroes.

MachiNe Team VS Achieves are Crack

In our path is team Achieves are Crack, the best team in the regular season from my point of view. I believe we have what it takes to win, but it will not be easy. HERE is the link to the score page if you would like to track the event.

Guest Blog-TrueAchievements

From time to time I will have a guest blog. It is reserved for people I think are important in the gamerscore world and community. First up is the head honcho over at, Rich.


I listen to a lot of 360 podcasts. And something that seems to crop up in a lot them quite regularly is the achievement system - it's good points but also it's flaws.

Some games have big point achievements that are really easy to get - Avatar being a good example. You can rack up the entire 1000 GamerScore in around a minute. This 1000 gets added to your total GamerScore and counts exactly the same as the 1000 you get for earning all the achievements in Ninja Gaiden 2, which involves 8 or 9 play throughs of the entire game!

I wondered if it was possible to come up with something that was a bit more fair.

I thought it would be better to base the score on how hard an achievement is to get, as well as the points the developers gave it.

So I came up with a formula that multiplies the GamerScore by the ratio of the number of people that have won the achievement compared to the number of people that own the game. This means that if everyone that has the game has that achievement, it doesn't score very highly. If only a few people have the achievement out of all the people that have the game, it does score highly.

Adding up all these achievement scores gives you your TrueAchievement score!

Of course, is so much more than that. We automatically keep track of your achievements as you win them. You can add your friends and see what games they are playing and see which achievements they are earning. You can create leaderboards, post in our forums and use our guides to getting the achievements. You can show off your favourite achievements in the Trophy Case on your homepage. You can even create a to-do list of achievements you haven't got yet, and print them off on a single page along with the guides to getting them!

As you can see, there's loads of functionality on the site already (and there's lots more I haven't mentioned). We listen to our members to try to add the features they want to see on the site, and they've come up with some great ideas already. Coming soon will be game reviews, leaderboads based on game genres and developers, game wish lists, and tons more!

So come on over to the site and check us out, it only takes a second to register and find out your TrueAchievement!

Big thanks to Rich from TrueAchievements! A really nice guy who seems to listen to what the community really wants. The site is original and fresh. You should go check it out and sign up. I really like the idea of the trophy case, microsoft should takes notes. My TrueAchievements score is currently 404,690. A lot closer to a million. What's yours?

200,000 A moment to reflect

March 2, 2008. That was the day I cracked 200,000 gamerscore. It took me 11 months and 2 days to get from 100k to 200k. It was pretty exciting hitting 200k, but not the same thrill 100k had. I wanted to reflect on this before I smash a quarter of a milion in the face this upcoming weekend.

My 200k achievement was from N+

Practice Makes Perfect:Die 1000 times in Single Player mode.

I know, I know, not a very good achievement for 200k, but I had to get a 15 point achievement to hit 200k on the nose.

It seems like every 100,000 I get hooked just a little bit more. You figure it would be the other way around. 100,000 equals the reset button for me, I am refreshed and ready to continue the upward climb.

1 Billion Gamerscore

Someone over live sent me a message about 1 billion gamerscore."have you ever considerd going into the billions i mean 1 million sounds like alot but how excited would you be to tap a billion ?"
I read it, I laughed about it and a couple days later it hit me that it could be possible. I figure if I die or stop at 80 years of age that would be a good life. I mean you're not dead at 80 but you pretty much are, unless your name is Hugh Hefner.

Enter Robo Stallion, the robot achievement whore I plan to make that will carry on the stallion83 gamertag. I plan to make this robot out of xbox 360 stuff. Two american xbox's, one Japanese and one Pal. I will use the HD DVD player as his appendix, because who the hell needs one?

The shell of Robo Stallion

If all goes accoring to plan Robo Stallion will hit 1 billion gamerscore in the year 7025.

Playing Gamerscore

I play Halo, I play Gears, and I play Battlefield: Bad Company. Those calibur games are few and far between. Solution? Play Gamerscore!

A lot of people say, how can it be fun playing those bad disney games? Some people just don't get it. If you see me playing cars mater national, I'm playing gamerscore. Gamerscore is a game within the game, a very large one. While playing gamerscore it is almost impossible to get bored with games, there is always something to play. There is a variety of games and ways you can play gamerscore. Leagues, most gamerscore, best completion percentage, most achievements, and so on. Next time your buddy rags on you for playing Shrek, tell him these simple words. I'm playing gamerscore.

How many xbox's?

Mr. owl may know how many licks it takes to get to the yummy center of that toostie roll pop. My question is how many xbox's will it take to get to the yummy middle of the biggest gamerscore milestone in the history of man kind? At the current rate it will take me 32 xbox's. That would be 8 dying xbox's per 250k. For me to reach 1 million gamerscore there will have to be a continuous score from this generation to the next. Will the next xbox be more reliable? I for one believe it will be built with love. They will not make the same mistake again. I believe the total number of xbox's it will take to get 1 million gamerscore will be around 15. Now excuse me, i'm still trying to figure out how many licks it takes to get to the center of the toostie roll pop. Some mysteries may never be solved. Damn owl! *shakes fist*
