Stallion Doin' Work: Day 8 - The Train Keeps on Rollin'


As I said on Day 7, Kobe had another 40 point game on Saturday night against the LA Clippers. 42 points to be exact. That makes four games in a row over 40. That's not even his best streak, back in 2003 he scored 40+ in 9 straight games. In 2007, he scored 50+ in 4 straight. 65,50,60,50 and then was held to 43 points in the fifth game which broke that streak. So these types of streaks are common when it comes to him.

Sunday: Challenge Day - 42 achievements needed once again

The first thing I did was purchased and downloaded Scene It: Movie Night for 800MSP. If movie trivia is your thing you should like the series. I recommend checking out Scene it? Box Office Smash or Lights, Camera, Action, the two best of the series. Movie Night is sub par, too many repeating questions. 10 achievements for 140 gamerscore.

1 Achievement for 30 Gamerscore in NBA2k12

Tentacles for WP7 got some more love and I unlocked 6 achievements for 80 Gamerscore.

Victorious: Time To Shine was up next. I've never heard of this show but I think it airs on nickelodeon. It's a Kinect only title that has singing, dancing, and other goofy stuff. It seems easy thus far and I don't see it causing too much trouble to complete. There's a music portion where you have to act like you are playing different instruments. The drums are giving me fits! It doesn't seem to track very well at all.....but still light years ahead of that abortion known as Let's Cheer. I unlocked 22 achievements for 445 gamerscore before calling it quits.

Briefly played Jillian Michaels Fitness Adventures which also requires Kinect and it seems like a good system to get your butt into shape. I didn't play it long enough to get a good read on everything it has to offer. I should get more time with it on Tuesday. 3 Achievements for 30 gamerscore.

Total for Day 8: 42 achievements - 725 gamerscore

Monday: Off Day

Tried to unlock those last two achievements in 11eyes cross over but no luck thus far. I'd love to break this disc in half right about now. I just need to give it up because it just slows me down and makes me hulk the F out.

Completed Scene it? Movie Night

Re-completed (DLC) in A World of Keflings. Great arcade game, go get it! Try out the trial at the very least.Glad to hear they are releasing more DLC down the road which you can vote on. I voted for Candy of Keflings.

Finished off KR: Glee Vol. 3.

That's about it for gaming.

  1. Well... at least you get a break with only 14 points this time.

  2. It seemed like he wasn't as focused as usual. Strange for him since the Mavs kicked their butts in the playoffs last year. Probably had something to do with Lamar coming back to staples.

  3. I'm really enjoying following this challenge. Keep up the good work sir.

  4. How long did Scene it? Movie Night take you?

  5. I'd recommend the game lazy raiders. A fairly easy 11/12 but the 12/12 isn't that bad. Not too long, and can be easily done over a spread of a few days.

  6. What happen if Kobe get injury? What will you do.

  7. @phitaucox - Thanks!

    @Nate - Not really sure. But there is a trick that makes it quicker. Check this: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=346721

    @matt - I'll need to queue it up then. I've yet to play a lot of arcade stuff.

    @anonymous - I'll try to match the player that scores the most points on the Lakers each night.
