Accomplished exactly what I set out to do today. Completed a game and completed a portion of another. I talk some games, set some goals and answer some messages.

Daily Update 8-24-2012

Image from JOJO'S BIZARRE ADVENTURE HD Ver.
I put more points up today over yesterday thanks to one VERY pricey XBLA game. Also recorded Ep.55 of the Gamerscore Popcast which will be up sometime this weekend, possibly tomorrow. There's three great new titles out, all of which are begging for my time. Two from what I know are great and one from what I hear is great: Darksiders II, Transformers: FoC and Sleeping Dogs. An amazing start to what looks to be a great end of summer/fall gaming season. I think I'll complete Transformers first. At least it's looking that way.

Daily Update 8-23-2012

I didn't get a lot done gamerscore-wise today but that's okay. I managed to put out the All Your Voices Are Belong To Me video and answer 100 or so Xbox LIVE messages. Good times.

First, what I played today:

Millisecond Dreaming & Other Things

I had the strangest of dreams last night. Somebody hacked an achievement with no milliseconds data on my gamercard, and boy, was I ever pissed! Probably because I went to sleep wondering why the final achievement in Robotics;Notes didn't pop up on xbox.com when it clearly unlocked on my end. Guess I was worried about how the data would look if and when it did show up on xbox.com. It came out just the way it should. So throw the theory of laggy ass achievements causing strange millisecond data out the window. It's a reach.

you don't have to come and confess
we're lookin for you
we gon find you
we gon find you
so you can run and tell that

I've felt like a creaky old man for around 18 months now, but I'm really starting to hit the weights hard. I'm working on the ever elusive, one-pinky push-up. Knowing that I'll turn 30 next year is kinda driving me to be all I can be. Maybe I'll even play more Kinect games for that extra gamerscore boost and exercise.

For those wondering about All Your Voices are Belong to Me #3 video. I'm working on it. Hopefully I'll have it done tonight. It will show up on my Youtube Channel first.

Robotics;Notes & The Achievement Gone MIA


Robotics;Notes is a Japanese story book or dating sim game. It took around 8 hours or so to complete but the final achievement has yet to show up on xbox.com. More on that in a moment.


One of the more interesting story book games judging by the characters on the screen. It's built around the concept of a twitter like interface where you communicate with your friends, or the females you wanna hook up with? I'm not going to act like I know what was going on, it just looked more interesting than previous story book games I have played.

Paper hiding the title for a little facebook game I do.


At the moment, the completion of the game is only visible to me for some reason. The final achievement is not showing up on xbox.com, so therefore, the completion doesn't exist.

But it does. Well, well well. As I was going to xbox.com to get a screen cap, it appears the final achievement FINALLY showed up on xbox.com. It only took like 10 hours or so, I have no idea why that happens. And check the milliseconds. :P

Has the right time but took almost 11 hours to appear. Very strange, but it's happened before, and I was playing on my Japanese Xbox at the time as well.

Play-Asia is where I get the majority of my imports.

Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes


Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Complete! It takes roughly 20-30 hours to get the 1,000 gamerscore. Not too difficult and features the standard achievement list found in most Lego games of the past.



It's probably the best Lego game on the machine, but I'm a little burnt on Lego games since I've played them all except for Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars.

What's changed from the 1st Lego Batman?


Open World of Gotham City (not a ton to do in the open world, but it's where you will find the majority of the gold bricks, animal riding, carnival games, helicopter and boat checkpoint races)

First Lego game where the characters have voices (very well done, I might add)

Features a ton of DC characters not found in the Batman series.

Superman absolutely steals the show since he is just awesome to use (flight, heat vision, superhuman breath, X-Ray Vision and superhuman Strength) and the Superman theme song is played every time you fly in the open world hub, which made me smile every time. Superman and the other characters that have the gift of flight make the helicopters pointless.

A lot to collect: 150 Minikits, 250 gold bricks, and 50 civilians.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10
It's a must have for Lego fans and probably the best Lego game made to date.

The Expendables 2 Game MINI-REVIEW



The Expendables 2 complete! This XBLA game takes roughly 10 hours to complete. It costs 1200MSP and comes with a total of 21 achievements and 400 gamerscore to be had. 

Note: You have to fully complete the game twice since the difficulties DO NOT stack.




I bought this game for a few reasons:


1) A friend asked me to play co-op with him (it features 4-player coop, which in most cases, is a great thing.)

2) It has Sly Stallone in it!

3) 400 Gamerscore

I went into this game 100% blind to what it was going to look or play like. It's just so bad that it's hard to express in words that are not the four-letter variety, ESPECIALLY for the asking price of $15! But I'll try my best.

Expendables 2 is the least interesting hybrid of a twin stick shooter/Light gun -like sequences of fail on the Xbox 360. More so a twin stick shooter but, hell, it might be the only hybrid of the sort, and I pray it stays that way.  The Light Gun sequences of fail are exactly that, FAIL, to the 9th power!! You're stuck with aiming a reticule around on the screen with your CONTORLLER while on rails or a set pathway. I don't even think you can die during these sections, and there are quite a few of them thrown into the mix for bad measure. The only possible way it could have been worse is if they tried to tack on Kinect Support. I really don't think I could have handled that on an emotional level.

Note to developers: Light Gun games SUCK without a light gun. Peanut Butter and Jelly is good, but not exactly desirable when the P or the J is missing in action. Make a game for a controller. Cool! Great! Make a game for Kinect. Yes! Exercise! Make a game that supports a Light Gun. Awesome! Light guns rock!! But damn you for designing a game and a good portion of its gameplay to work with a controller type that is not even the best option for the gameplay you created. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY???? I'll never understand this type of decision.

Gameplay is dung, graphics are crap, abilities/power-ups=super crap, voice acting is super-mega crapola on a stick! (Sly doesn't even voice his character *RAGE MODE ACTIVATED*) It had some potential but it was clearly slapped together to coincide with the release of the movie....without any regard for a smidgen of quality control.

I really wanted to like and support this game since I'm a big Stallone fan, but I cannot recommend this heap of vile to anyone.

Not even to those just looking to blow shit up.

Save your money and go watch the movie instead. That's most definitely cheaper IF you don't buy concessions.

Rating: 3/10
Expendable as can be.

Catching CaMmy

I was selected this week for our Listener Challenge on The Gamerscore Popcast by CaMmy95. He is currently beating the crap out of me by 1,645 gamerscore. Having played very little since the start and losing my game (mojo) while on vacation that I'm desperately trying to get it back, I'm left with very little hope and even less time and ammo (games) to catch up. I have until Friday 3PM EST to make it happen.

This is the story about how I caught CaMmy95......or died trying.

As of Monday night 11:57PM EST
CaMmY95 Starting Score: 137,585 Current Score 139,755 Total 2,170
Stallion83   Starting Score: 741,920  Current Score 742,445 Total  525
