Stallion Doin' Work - The Stage is Set

Round Two Starts Monday Night

An update on two challenge days:

On Thursday night a sick (literally and figuratively)  Kobe scored 31 points in a game 6 loss against the Denver Nuggets which set the stage for a winner-take-all game 7 to be played in La La Land.

Friday was my challenge day to match the points that Kobe scored in achievements unlocked. I did pass the challenge; earning 32 achievements across 6 different games.

The winner-take-all game 7 was played on Saturday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles California. Kobe scored 17 points in a win over the Denver Nuggets and The Lakers move on to play the Oklahoma City Thunder in Round 2 which begins on Monday night. The challenge lives on for at least another 4 games with this victory.

Sunday was the challenge day for me. I unlocked exactly 17 achievements across 4 different games to get the job done.

I really can't see the Lakers getting by this younger and more talented Thunder team. I wouldn't bet my money on it happening, but I wouldn't be totally shocked if they somehow managed to squeak on by. The Lakers bigs need to play out of their minds for the entire series to even give LA a chance. If LA can steal game 1, I think the Lakers will win in 6. Big if!  I'm hoping for a rusty Thunder squad since they have been idle for 8 or 9 days now. Then again, I'd rather be rusty then dog-ass tired like the Lakers will be after playing seven grueling games in the first-round.

Episode 40 of The Gamerscore Popcast is up for your listening pleasure. Pig, once again, is out this week. All indications point towards him making his prolific return on episode 41. If you haven't listened to the show in a while, you should give it a try. It's evolving and the news section doesn't totally blow chunks anymore thanks to Rand al Thor 19. I also believe everyone is getting better after 40 weeks under their belts.

I'm heavily anticipating tomorrow's new releases: Max Payne 3, Battleship and Game of Thrones. It's been a while since I've been even slightly excited about a Tuesday release date. I'm crossing my fingers for Thrones not to suck too much ass. A little ass sucking, I can deal with, but full blown ass sucking, not so much. As for battleship, my expectations are on ground level with it. I'm wanting Rockstar to knock it out of the park with Max Payne. I'm a really big fan of the series and I'm interested to see how or if they have rejuvenated the series.
Proof that I have a Max Payne Fan Card
I saw The Avengers movie last night in 3D and all I can say is go see it for yourself to experience the awesome. Quite the epic moving going affair. Cindy absolutely loved it as well. I generally hate 3D movies with the exception to that rule being Avatar. Avengers, in my eyes, is totally worth seeing on the big screen in 3D. Hulk Smash the Box Office!!!


  1. Hey Stall, I'm pretty sure Game of Thrones was pushed back until late June unfortunately. I'm really looking forward to it, hope it doesn't disappoint as it has quite alot to live up to.

    1. GoT still comes out tomorrow (15th) in the states.

    2. I just checked up on it there and you were right, 15th in the States but pushed back till 29th June in Europe. Kind of sucks for us, but enjoy it anyway!

  2. Popcast is actually MUCH better with the 4 of you, even without Stoph. I'd recommend just leaving Pig out of it.
