[VIDEO] 700,000 Gamerscore – The 1 Million Journey Continues

My journey to 1 million gamerscore began back on November 22nd, 2005.  2,312 days later and I’m sitting pretty on exactly 700,000 gamerscore. The first person in the universe to do such.

6 years, 4 months or:
  • 199,756,800 seconds
  • 3,329,280 minutes
  • 55,488 hours
  • 330 weeks (rounded down)
Here is the video I made to celebrate the 700,000 milestone. For the best quality use 1080p or 720p.

The achievement that put me exactly at 700k was “Insanity” from Mass Effect 3. Description: Finish the game on Insanity without changing the difficulty after leaving Earth. I would say it’s more than fitting and it’s the achievement I wanted to hit the milestone with all along which I’ve known for at least a month now. I slowed down and spent very little time on my Xbox over the last two weeks, I did not play any new games, and went against the grain to avoid achievements in Mass Effect 3 just so I could hit 700k with “Insanity”. It all worked out to perfection.

That last 175 all unlocked side by side. Note the times.

The video was pain in the rear end to make. Ever since I hit 600,000 gamerscore back in August of 2011 I’ve basically recorded every shred of video game footage. Hundreds of hours all packed onto my HDD. Most of the achievements were buried in files that were 3 to 4 hours long. It was like trying to find a needle in a haystack. And it took a ton of work to finally get done. I hope you all enjoy it. 

I guess the march towards 800,000 beings now. Instead of being dog tired from gaming like I usually am once I hit a 100k milestone, I’m actually ready to pick the controller back up and get to it. I need to go digest this and have some fun. I’ll probably reflect more on this later tonight or tomorrow.
Thanks to Evil Controllers for providing me with a sweet custom controller to hit my milestone with.
Thanks for the voice work from Omega Deez. Can you spot his voice in the video?

A: It’s up for the world to see. I hope you liked it. I recommend 1080p or 720p.

Q: Hey just a question regarding your contest. Did you already have planned out what achievement you’re going to unlock for 700k? Otherwise, you can essentially choose the winner(s)…
A: I had “Insanity” planned for at least a month before hitting 700k. So I did not choose a winner and it was completely random. Congrats again to SeanRock101 from Ireland who won the awesome prizes.
