Blast from the past

March 30th 2007. "First gamer hits legitimate 100k gamerscore."


That is one day I will always remember. It was freaking bananas. I remember my heart racing pretty fast when I was one achievement away from the mark. I knew in my mind that I was the only person on this planet that put the time in to make it feel like a true accomplishment. To me it was a big thing. It was a fun experience that I wouldnt trade away. First to 100k was sweet. Big thanks to x360a for the interview. It was nice to be congratulated on the accomplishment. I was going to post the interview, but I cannot find it.

My 100k achievement was Rank #1 in world tour in Virtua Tennis 3.

Shower Thinker

As I was bathing the other day it suddenly dawned on me that I might one day hit 1 million gamerscore. That's 7 digits! If I cross that mark will it be like the y2k scare, maybe break the system? Nothing that exciting will happen, I'm afraid. My account will probably just get lost in the Bermuda Triangle.

Then I got to thinking what achievement would I have to get when a MILLION comes around. I think it would have to be a real crowd pleaser. The epic idea I came up with, in the shower, was to play Eye of the Tiger on expert in rock band 2, with my eyes closed, while being at the top of the famous steps in the Rocky movies. Getting it done flawlessly, of course, for the flawless fret work achievement and 1 million gamerscore. I am a huge rocky fan, so to me, that be would be my epic omgwtfbbq moment.


That day is much too long away.
