Guinness Record Holder For Highest Xbox Gamerscore Closes In On Million Points

u guys jelly?

It's cool, sure, but I'm not jealous. At the risk of trolls, I'll throw down a legit answer. To be at the top, you have to really dedicate yourself away from other distractions. I remember looking into him a few years back, reading interviews and he has to cut out some amazing gaming experiences that happen to be on other platforms to move forward and maintain a lead over any other competitors. It's the same problem with trophies, strictly PC, or Nintendo gaming.

Because he had to cut out amazing AAA-AA experiences in other games from other machines to achieve living and breathing Xbox. I remember being surprised a gamer would do that on purpose, but then understanding he has people on his heels coming for that coveted gamerscore achievement. He had to actively pass up amazing games like Starcraft II: Wings, Wonderful 101, Metal Gear Solid 4, Europa Universalis IV, Civ 5, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Fire Emblem, Xenoblade, Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, Heavy Rain, Total War Shogun II, The Last of Us, Zelda: SS, SC2:HotS, Uncharted 2, Metroid 3/Prime Trilogy, New Super Mario Wii, LittleBigPlanet, Rogue Legacy, Demon's Souls, Path of Exile, God of War III, SSBB, Infamous, et cetera. I too came to that point when I found myself playing a piece of sh** game racing against a few friends years ago, and I had to ask myself if I had more fun playing that terrible lol game racing with a friend over some other AAA experiences. I had to let it go.There are even terrible games that copy great AAA games, so even if he intends on playing some ground breaking games from yesteryear, some of the innovations have been stolen and lifted and placed into mediocre modern day games. On the plus side, I did get Killer Instinct for Xbone free with my high gamerscore.

Life is too short. To a gamer, I don't want to limit any experience in my hobby. It would be like avoiding all MGM, Sony, Disney, Indie, and WB movies while only watching Universal movies. I couldn't do it. Or for TV watching, watching only NBC and giving up HBO, Showtime, Fox, CBS, etc. I think it's cool he pressed on, but I think it sucks he missed out on so many games because he's a gamer.

I will, for lulz, from time to time race against a friend in a game of their choosing, whether collecting everything in a game or 1st to beat the game on insane, or 1st to get 1000/1000 or a Platinum in a terrible game...but those challenges these days are rare as I would rather make more time for killing off my backlog of amazing last gen games as the new generation is upon us. I need to hurry too before this new generations games take off.

Finally, there have been times I just want to play for weeks and weeks Street Fighter online, Marvel Vs. Capcom, or some classic game and I already got the full achievements on XBL. The idea of not revisiting some of these great games to press on playing bad games I hate is too competitive for me. I know what it feels like to not play my favorites, I've done it, but I can't do it anymore.

@SolidTy: For some reason, I had this playing in my head while reading your response. It just makes it that much more epic.

Seriously funny, hahaha.

Started watching Arrow after seeing all the talk about it here. It felt a lot like Batman: Bow Edition starting out, but it's doing a good job setting itself apart after two episodes.

The action scenes are disappointing though. They're fine when it's just Oliver blasting fools with arrows, but when it moves to hand-to-hand combat it's hard to take seriously. They come across as blatantly choreographed rather than two people trying to kill each other; this was especially true during the fight against silver-haired-triad-girl-whose-name-I-don't-know in the second episode. Other than that, the show's cool.

If you're enjoying it now, just wait until the second half of season 1. The show picks up and doesnt't slow down.

You should man up and finish the tutorial mission so you can actually play with me and Chelem.

I'm interested in the older Civics. Thinking about saving up for one and fixing it up to race with it.

Thanks. I love the look of the older Civics. The only reason I got a newer one is because I just got done sending my old car to the junk yard and I had been experiencing problem after problem with it ever since I got it (Chevy). I was just so fed up with car issues and repair bills that I needed something reliable, and I've always wanted a Honda (this is my first). I got a 10 year warranty with complete coverage with it as well.

John traded his Accord for a Civic. Have no idea why.

Finished South Park: Stick of Truth.....OMFG! F*ckin brilliant! XD

Soo much awesomeness in that story! The twists (which are plentiful) were just brilliant and so were the levels! Massive kudos to Obsidian (though they really can't make a damn game without bugs) and Matt&Trey for the awesome game.

If you're a South Park fan, you NEED to play this game! The game does reach several moments of perfection if you are a fan of the show :D

Hope they make some story DLC or even consider making a sequel/another SP game in this style. Despite being awesome, the fact that it is so short leaves you begging for more :P I mean, the main story could have easily been some 2-3 hours longer without actually changing anything (there were some decisions made for you during the story, which could have easily been quests) but essentially they should add better side-quests. Adding to the fact they are few, most of them were either short or too easy or were completed while doing the main story.

So here's hoping! :D Plus if they do decide to make another game, the hard part is already done: the graphics, the animation and even the town map (which were 3 of the biggest issues converting from TV to the game) are already done and useable in the future! :)

------

On a more technical level, I actually enjoyed the combat mechanics. They were simple yet allowed for a decent amount of complexity; it allowed the combat itself to either be very fast paced or slow and steady. Best of all, they worked perfectly in the game. Again, kudos to Obsidian on this.

While I've heard of man-baby fetishes, this is the first time I've heard of someone that likes to shit their pants.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the Persona with the superior OST~
