There were no days off in between day 2 and 3. Kobe put up 39 points against the Warriors on Friday night. Which left me with at least 39 achievements to gain on Saturday to pass day 3 of the challenge.
Here’s how I did:
We started recording Episode 22 of the gamerscore popcast at about the time the game ended. 39 is quite a high mark to get and I couldn’t just waste 3-4 hours in a Skype call. But I had a solution. Game while recording the podcast. Genius, I know.
I figured I would just finish up the story in Need for Speed: The Run while we recorded and it worked out great. I ended up with 9 achievements for 340 gamerscore well before we wrapped up the popcast. It ended up being a fun one to record at pig’s expense. (Pig jokes welcome in the comments below)
The next day I went straight to work gaining two quickies in Mortal Kombat Arcade. 2 achievements for 25 Gamerscore.
I had Jurassic Park in my back pocket so I knew it wouldn’t be too hard getting the 39 achievements needed for the day. I unlocked 33 achievements for 670 gamerscore and made it extinct for good.
Total for Day 3: 44 Achievements – 1,035 Gamersocre
