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.
