So how is everyone? I am doing pretty good myself! I had a very busy week but have been relaxing all weekend. Ironically I have not been on my XBox 360 at all simply because of what is coming up... the Home Stretch!!! :)
Each year I like to give myself a goal of a gamer score I would like to obtain for that year on it... and this year was no exception... but I passed that score over 4 months ago. That goal was to get 80,000 gamer score by the end of the year. With it having come and gone... I decided to simply just go for it... the BIG ONE... 100,000 Gamer Score! Yup... I figured it wouldn't hurt to try... but really didn't think i could do it because of the time and amount of gaming involved. That seems to be not the case now. Here is my current gamer score as of today...
I have already gone up 16,307 points since the beginning of the year so now I have only 10,552 left to get! It just seems so easy now. Mind you I still have my backlog I am working on, well kinda, if I could stay away from Gamestop and other things as well... then I could make a huge impact into it. There is only two games left coming out this year I am looking forward to, GTA5 and more so... Tom Clancy's Blacklist!!! Oh yeah! On the countdown for that one... only 16 days to go! :P
In other gaming news I have made another purchase, but for my 3DS this time... and I am so glad I finally got this title! No Alli, I didn't get Animal Crossing yet... but you will be the first to know when I do! I got this other awesome title...
Oh my gosh!!! This is such an awesome game, that I have not been able to put it down since I started playing it two nights ago!!! If you have a 3DS... you owe it to yourself to get this game! I read the review on here and let me tell you... you need to play this game... it is far better than the review tells it is! Great exploration, awesome graphics, I love the soundtrack and effects too! I am very happy to have it in my collection now! :)
In other gaming news, I have not as of yet gone back to The Last of Us as of yet... but plan to give it a "Fresh Set of Eyes" here in a week or so. Usually that works for me as far as if I didn't care for the game or like what I first saw. I so hope so because alot of my friends are so loving it... and I simply have not gotten on that wagon... as of yet!
Finally I have made a decision that I am simply not going to be upgrading to either of the new systems that are coming out in the next few months. Maybe down the road a year or so... but not at the launch or after. Why you ask? Well for a couple of reasons. First of all it is going to cost alot to purchase either of them and secondly, I simply am not looking forward to investing into building an entirely new library of games for those proprietary systems. I have spent alot of money over the last 5 years on my XBox 360 collection, my small but nice PS3 collection and my even smaller Wii and 3DS collections. That coupled with another fact that I now am facing as well. Retrirement.
No not now... but I have 11 to 14 years to get myself ready for that and in these final years I am making some sacrifices that need to happen for the planning of my future. I am very happy with the gaming systems I have and very blessed even more so to even have all that I do... but I don't feel the need to keep purchasing more of them. I have always been a pretty much live within my means type of girl and I like that... but tightening down the screws a little more here and there will definately pay off in the long run! Remember kids, live for the day BUT plan for the future! Here it comes... one step closer each day!!! :P
I just went and got this at the AWESOME RECOMMENDATION by my AWESOME FRIEND ALLI!!! :)
It is certain now... between this and Luigi's Mansion : Dark Moon... I am not going to get any extra sleep for the next few weeks!!! :P
Have a wonderful week ahead, stay safe and warm, and have alot of fun gaming as usual!!! God Bless!!! :)
