What I’ve been up to and the games I’ve been playing.
We also joined the x360a gamerscore league as a podcast. It’s a yearly event that usually takes place from mid September unitl the end of October. The victor is generally the squirrel that stores up the most nuts during the year. Squirrel = Gamer Nuts = Easy Gamerscore games. We will get rolled on but not because of me. SHOTS FIRED!!!
Speaking of roll, I’m on one with my work-out schedule. I think I’ve only missed one day out of the last two weeks. Not that I haven’t tried to be this consistent in the past, just nagging little injuries here and there kept me down and out for a while over the past few years.
I laughed pretty hard at this message. Just picturing it in my head made it even better.
You’ve probably already seen this Gangnam style video. If you haven’t, it’s a must watch
I’ve been missing in action for a very good reason – working hard to get a video done. Until then, I’ll act as if I didn’t hit a certain score over the weekend. I can’t just make simple little video showing my progress, I’m incapable. I have to do it right, but I can’t wait to be done with it.
Just 115 G away from 750,000 now…. and I’m sitting here racking my brain for ideas on a video, all day I’ve been drawing blanks. It needs to be something I’m not sinking days into like the last one. A very slow day for me gamerscore wise but a good week overall because I’ve been able to game a ton more since Cindy started school back up, she has a lot less time for demanded late night snuggles. HAAHAHAAHAHAHAAHAHAAH. Dudes with the long time girlfriends or wives feel me on that.
The whole gang was aboard to record Ep56 of the Gamerscore Popcast, so keep your eyes peeled for that on Sunday. I also did something super secret that I will not speak on until it happens. If there’s one thing I’m getting use to during this journey, it’s being let down. Nothing ever seems to meet my expectations or go according to plan. This super secret is already not going down exactly as I expected. That’s another issue I’ll have to save for the book.
Here’s the video I made for Half-Million back in 2010.
I got my first capture card the night before and slapped this video together a few hours after hitting the mark. Certainly not my best video but 500,000 was the most satisfying milestone for me so far. It just felt damn good.
I’ve caught onto internet haters over the years, been around the block and back with them. Some people will just hate because I don’t reply to them, it’s quite funny. If I got pissed at all the people that never replied to me, I’d have a big list of people I would hate, but I don’t. I absolutely can’t please everybody, but then again, I’m not doing anything to piss anyone off that I know of. So why should I care? There are things you can control and then there are things you cannot control. This is one of those instances.
But here’s the M.O. of an internet hater, in my specific case.
How the hate starts and ends.
1) HAX, Mod, there’s no way you got that score legit Once they figure out that isn’t true they move on to 2) You must be a fat ass and have no life Once they figure this is also false 3) THIS DUDE NEEDS TO GET LAID Wrong again 4) Gamerscore is just meaningless Then why did you go through the previous steps to hate on me and wait until now to say this? I think you really think gamerscore is awesome but you just hate me for reasons you won’t share. 5) He has to be a team of people Dead wrong again. I’m the real deal and the sooner you get that fact into your head, we can move onto the next phase. 6) You have a huge ego and/or you are an asshole. I think these people know down to their cores that I’m clean as a whistle, so they reach for something, anything, to throw at me. And you know me how? The internet world is a lot different than the real world and just because I happen to have the largest score, doesn’t automatically make me fit your perception of me.
Trueachievement posted about my pending 750k on their facebook page. This is what got me started on the haters. The comments had me rolling. Check that out HERE. This is on a Facebook page of a site dedicated for achievement hunters. You might end up playing beach volleyball if you do check it out, it’s a real Sandy Vagina festival up in that peace.
The games I played and the achievement I unlocked.
Thoughts on all the games I played and achievements I unlocked on Thursday, August 30, 2012.
Earlier today I hit exactly 749,000, 1k away from the 750k milestone. I wasn’t trying to, nor did I even know I was close. I just hit my guide and there I was, precisely 1k away. Had to take a pic.
Then I noticed my profile was acting kinda funny – My score was off and all the messages were missing. I decided it was about time to download my profile.
As most of you know, you can download your profile a zillion times faster now. Doing this made my achievements pop ON TIME and not 15 seconds late. It was strange seeing them pop so fast.
I’m currently 625 gamerscore shy of the Three-Quarters of a Million mark. When I hit these milestones it’s the only time I get to stop and smell the roses. So, I’m literally going to chop a few dozen roses up and snort them as if I were Keith Richards offspring. Not really. But what I will do is get started on making a video for the milestone, that will give me a chance to reflect and enjoy the moment. We’ll see what happens.
