After 8 some odd months I get to post a blog now.. Nice.. and look I got modded too.. even nicer.. but you want to know the real kicker? You want ot know why I got modded? LOL.. Ok I asked a simple question... yup that's it asked a question about a link?

So everyone is up in arms about thier missing E3 ACHIEVEMENTS.. I too was a little concerned aboutthe NIGHT OWL and SECRET AGENT.. so I go tothe offical Forum threadonE3 and it states right in the first post #'s14 & 17 to go to this LINKED threadto report a MISSING ACHIEVEMENT. So I click on the link which of course links to another thread, BUT this thread states thatthis isNOT A RERORTINGTHREAD forMISSINGE3ACHIEVEMENTS.. ???? WTF??? OK.. Me being me post in this new threadI askeda simple none rude non sarcastice non vulgar question and to be helpful, Ipoint out to the staff that this LINKbrought me tothis new NON REPORTING THREAD.

AND what do I get for my time... some STAFFnamed Dracula68 DELETES MY ENTIRE POST........... and ...........and .. nothing jsut deleted it! No helpat all..didn't try to send me toanother thread to help or say anything encouraging at all.. nice huh? Then this DUD tells me that it was NOT LINKED and tha I had the wrong thread.. OH IT GET'S BETTER!!

I get back to the E3 thread and sure enough the dates are current.. read it to make sure and click on both links... which bring me right back to the thread I was just deleted from...so I go back and try it two more times JUSTTO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE....this is when I send on of my open windows back to my profile.. what's this I see, a letter in my in box!! yea for me!!

TERMS OF SERVICE VIOLATION!!! WTF!!!!?????!!!!! Seems not only is Dracula68 a big NON help but he has also sent me a TOS violation with no warrning what-so-ever.. and all it says is that I have violated the TOS and this is JUST a WARNING and not to do it again or I'll be MODDED OR BANNED!!! REALLY!!!!

Well me being me.....I go back at my old deleted postand give olDrac a very non vulgar but very sarcastic response... and lookwhat happened.. MY POST NEVER EVEN SHOWED UP ON THETHREAD!!! and... yup you guessed it I get POINTS taken away from me.... and another TOS and.. theYOU HAVE BEENMODDED letter... NICE huh!!??

All I was doing was asking a simple question? All I wanted was a little help...but instead I getCRAPPEDon and DISRESPECTED.. Dracual68 never even once said anything constructive to me.. WHAT A COMPLETE AND UTTER $!@#!@*!!

I sent a letter to another staff memeber, because I have no idea who to turn to.. one that I respect.. will not mention any names..as of this writting I have not herd back from them.. so this is where I choose to voice my complaint..

If this is how GS treats it's users... I may end up leaving... but I will not let one BAD APPLE spoil the whole bunch.. I believe in 2nd chances.. so if Dracula68 wants toMAN up and send me a PM then I will publicly retract thesestatements, but until then..I will not recant!

Oh yea I still havn't got my last two ACHIEVEMENTS Either...

B8TINGU's Weekly Recap - Nov 9 2009* (my 360's blog @ 360voice.com)

It is hard to believe another week has passed. Here is the recap: It is a good one! B8TINGU had seven days of gaming! In a row! I know! Crazy! I feel like i'm bragging when I say our score climbed 1105 points last week... insanity! I guess that is what completing 56 achievements can do!

NEW GAMES! NEW GAMES! NEW GAMES! 10 of them to be exact! Battle Fantasia, Beowulf, DBZ: BURST LIMIT, DEF JAM: ICON™, Dragon Age: Origins, GAROU MOW, KOF98UM, SOULCALIBUR, Samurai Shodown II, and Street Fighter II' HF. I want more! I want more! Oh, and B8TINGU must have been in the mood to beat people down last week. DEAD OR ALIVE 4 was the favorite game. He played it on 4 of the days.

So that's it for now. It was a good week. On to the next one.

THE REAL ME:

Wow, I'm currently on fighting binge!! So if you need help or would like to help out in any 360 fighting games hit me up and we'll talk! ReallyANY fighting game. Help is always appreciated and favors alwasy returned!Honest!

Ok let me be honest with you, I do have an alterior motive. lol.. Over at 360voice.com I have asmall but friendly competion, comprised ofa bout 7 or so gamers all racing to get the very first 3 star fighting badge the site has eer seen. No small task by any means..

This is just one of the many reasons why I love 360voice.com so much. So her I present to you the lurifd tale of the 3* fighting badge challenge, but first an explination...of sorts.

The list of fighting games and explination of box is as folows:

Game: Icon Tile / Game Name Proper / My currentGS / GS attainable / ? / my current # of achievements unlocked/

the * and the numbers after are 360voice specific game ratings so ignor those..

Battle Fantasia301000*3/48BlazBlue1000DBZ: BURST LIMIT51000*1/50DEAD OR ALIVE 43551000*22/45DEF JAM: ICON™01000*0/37Fatal Fury Special2004.44.0GAROU MOW0200*0/12KOF XII1000KOF98UM145200*9/12Marvel vs. Capcom 2200Mortal Kombat vs. DCU5001000*21/50Samurai Shodown II5200*1/12SOULCALIBUR40200*3/123.52.8Soulcalibur IV6501000*35/507.57.5Street Fighter II' HF0200*0/12STREET FIGHTER IV4301000*25/48SuperStreetFighter2THD2004.06.0Ultimate MK3145200*10/125.45.6Virtua Fighter 501000*0/323.58.5

I own 14 of the current 19. 2 retail and 3 arcade's left to go. Also the list does get an udate every so often adding in newer games. Like Tekken 6 will be coming, just don't knowwhen.

So this is the break down. You get certain badges for certain completion percentages for every genre not just fighting,butfor thistale I shall explaine my current standings. You have 3 tiers of badges that you can earn.The first tier is of course a 1 star , the next is 2 star, the last isthe 3 star, ther is no4 star or beyond in any genre as of now. and thier probbably won't be.Here is my scores for each or lack there of. I need the points listed to gain each badge,one star is the first box second star the second and third star, well the third! As you can see, I have some gaming to do!

-1235-4775-8315

Well now the tale that should not be!

A friend of mine Elmo Teh Azn was in my party, we wern't even playing the same game, but hey that's how it goes right? So Elmo says to me in passing that he saw me playing DOA 4 and that it gothim thinking about thethree star fighting badge. He says he might go for it, since no one on 360 has it....

Silience...

I say that would be cool.. and I think about my games, hmm I have some of those.. so I retort that maybe we should have a race to that badge! lol.. So he says that he may put upa thread aboutit and see if anyone would be interseted in it.

The next day he hasthis thread posted: (*note first entry was edited by Elmo already)

http://360voice.gamerdna.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=21236

Two gamers had already posted init..Karma Is a Bishand Dog of Thunder, soI went ahead and made it known Tha i too would be in this fray.. longstory short, It went offical(sort of) and Dog started tracking scores..that crazy Dog..sowe had to kinda put asign upend date toit. Low and behold seven gamersanswered the call and now.. it's on... here for you enjoyment are the not socurrent standings. but probably still pretty accurate:

Current Standings (Thanks DoT):

Current Standings as of 11/6/09:
1) Joshnorm - 42.415%
2) Dog of Thunder - 39.11%
3) B8TINGU - 17.034%
4) Ichya Paradise - 16.992%
5) Elmo teh Azn - 11.907%

Complete Fighting Games:
1) Joshnorm - 5 - MvC2, SC, SC4, SSF2THD, UMK3
2) Dog of Thunder - 1 - SC4

ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED:
SOULCALIBUR: I got 3, pretty easy but I got interupted so I'll get back to it!
KING OF FIGHTERS 98: 1 now just 2 more to completion..
BATTLE FANTASIA: 2 more seems like pretty descent game so far.
DRAGON BALL Z: BL: 1 this looks like a grinder....ugh.
BOARDERLANDS: Like 9 or so more had a total blast in co- op, this is what interupted my SOULCALIBUR. but with 4 people it's AWESOME!!!

BEATING B8TINGU:
So if you don't know in my AC (auto challenge)I was 'lacks due to my 300 odd point lead.. when I gave it quick check I saw I was actually 35pts in the hole!? Man, did you know BAND HERO had a 490pt. ACHIEVEMENT!!! Yea you herd me right 490pts. for one achievement..which looks to take about 30 min or less to get. That had me on my toes...er fingers, but I still managed to pull down a couple extra hundred points for the win.

A HEARTFELT MESSAGE YOU NEED TO READ:
Now normaly I don't do this, but this is legit..and unfortunatly very sad, I was hoping that everyone that reads this could possible go to the link below and send a card.. no money, unless you want, but just a 1 card, it's a only a few dollars and moment of your time, but I think it would make a very terminaly sick little boy very happy, if not for a while..please, as I hear it he does not have much time left.

by on

ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED/GAME OVER:
LEFT 4 DEAD: picked up my last DLC achievment to finish the game again and I have an awesome completion date of HALLOWEEN!

BEATING B8TINGU:
Still no answer to my 800 or so point lead.. with 10 hours to go..lol.. that don't mean nothing to AVATAR or FALLOUT 3 (PC) though.

REMINDER:
Set you clocks back an hour (those of you in the USA, excluding AZ. and HI. I think) yup a lot of people forgot about this one, including me!

GEARS OF WAR 2 DOUBLE EXP:
SUCKS!!!! Really I palyed for like 5 hours yesterday and man talk about tough! Anyone else experincing this too? Is it jsut me or have they uped the difficulty and added more nasties like more GRINDERS, BOOMERS & FLAMERS!! I didn't even go up one level!!! WTF!!

PLEASE VOTE FOR MY DAUGHTER:
This is a big step for my ex-wife as she has said she will never post a pic of our daughter on the WWW, but with the possibility of a GAP shopping spree and GAP modeling career she couldn't pass it up...(I'm not sure how I feel about it) So I'm asking anyone willing to vote fo her to please do so. You can vote for as many pics. once a day, everyday until the 17th... unfortunatly you do have to register for the free site..ugh.. I know, but if you don't want to vote, you can at least gt to see my princess! (the bottom one was a test pic that my ex accidently entered..lol)

ALL THE OTHER NEWS:

Yup I have other news... mostly bad.. I got layed off again.. twice in a year, both times supposedly due to the failing economy..whatever.. I found out my landlord has not been making t emorgatge payments, so guess who just got a foreclosuer notice on his door.. yup.. I guess it's time to start look for a new place to live. ugh.. I did happen to have some good news through this.. My bank has a program for "Thank you Points" and of all the money I have spent in the last 3 years I have accumulated enough points for soem new games! They are: Dreagon AGE: Origins, Assassins Creed II, and the Godfather II, prett sweet huh? Now I guess I'll have to get the originalGodfather.. someday. (Note* I tried puting images of those games in but for some reason the y would not take, so ugh oh well..

I got the Demo for this game, (Cause I've had it on pre-order for so long) Yup GameStop, Yup I get free in game bat too..lol, but the Demo is awesome. I like the new melee weapons, wacking a zombie witha frying pan is just plain hilarious! I got touse a police batton anda machetee..my personal fav! There is new health items too an adredaline shot, that makes you faster and a bit tougher for a limited amount of time.New to the throwing devices is BOOMER VILE!!! Yes, you can pick up a container of extracted Boomer vomit and throw it at anything, instantly attracting zombies to do your bidding, yes you can use it on the Wandering Witch or the the Tanks, it works!! Yes you heard me right, WANDERING WITCHES!! They walk around now, but they still don't go looking for yo until you disturb one...try whacking her with a frying pan! It's still lot's of Zombies coming toget a bite out of you and there are some short comings, I don't seem to like the voice acting as much in this one. It seems the new survivors don't really care about the Special Infected. Unlike the last survivors when they scream about specials like they mean it! Also some of the new Specials seem a bit ridiculas.."JockeyZombies" lol.. maybe this will give the game just the right amount of comic relief. "Chargers" seem like a pain..and the Demo which only has two very short playable levels from the PARISH" campaign are set in the day, so it's bit brighter. One just hopes that the rest will be at night,specialy "THE DARK CARNIVAL"..

One last lit bit of info. My Union "Achievement Hunters" seems to have changed it's name and become a BORDERLANDS Union, don't get me wrong.. I like BOARDERLANDS, but I just didn't join a BOARDERLANDS union.. and there was absolutely now discussion, at least none that I was aware of ( I think the leader and the officers should have contactedpeople via mail) but nope, just up and changed it...so I left. No I'm union less now.. maybe I will join anohter or maybe not.

Well I hope to see you guys around some time, I hope everyone ha a great and safe HALLOWEEN and are getting ready for the madness of Black Friday! As always happy gaming!

Yours, Jeff(B8TINGU) Clark

Wow, What a month!

by on

Well, It's been about a month since my last post. I'm sorry for that. I have increased my gamer score and my game library significantly, which means I still have no life...lol.. I will try to keep this to a minimum, because I know I can get on rants and just go forever.

First lets re-cap some things real quick. Well since last I bloged I have increased my gamer score by at least 5k. Pretty good for a single parent, been gaming pretty late into the night when she's asleep. Seems like I have been turning myself into an insomniac. Really I can only get by with a few hours of sleep everyday..but sometimes it takes it's toll on me. So I think that may be slowing down.

Boosting sessions: Well I have completed my CoD3, now to continue the SP campaign. SP in Stranglehold took a hold, I think it was due to the fact that the boss I'm currently on is so dang tough!! Grrr. So now I find myself grinding 4 player movie sessions in Your in the Movies and man that guys voice is annoying!! 12 down, only 18 more to go..ugh.. And I may have to re-do some of my previously 8 already done due to a glitch I herd existing where you had to watch all of the award ceremonies...I certainly hope not. GoW seems to also have been put on hold, hopefully we'll get back on track with that. I am also currently grinding out FEAR, Prey, The Darkness and L4D as I can with various other people.

This last week has been pretty much an epic week of achievements for me. Not that I put a lot on the board but the type of achievements I have got:

General in CoD3.. That's 40,000 points in MP.

Master of Ceremonies in R6V, That's hosting a 16 player match, an believe me it was not easy!

What are you trying to prove on L4D, that's surviving all 4 campaigns on expert!

For some reason I just can't think right now, so I'll tidy up this blog and (see I'm using strange words like tidy in my blog?) And quit for now. I do have all these great blog ideas in my head but for some reason I'm really having trouble channeling them on to the screen and into my blog.. No I don't have ADD.. I think though I have my next idea, It was supposed to be this blog (evolution of a friends list) but somehow time slipped away and so I'm updating now, I think it may be my clutter, I really need to clean this place up.. Meaning my condo, aprt, townhouse, pad, dwelling, whatever you may want to call it. Let me go do that, and hopefully I'll see you guys around a bit more later this week or next.

As always happy gaming!

BTW I started putting pics in! How do they look? Well assuming the y actually come out..

It too late to blog.. see you tomorrow.

by on

Because it's so late, I just got back from seeing G Force with my daughter, I will write my blog tonight, and post it tomorrow.. I hope that will suffice.. It may be epic, or jsut a few court paragraphs, but I do have some good gaming news, about me, that is... if that's of any intersest to anyone. Thanks for the two new comments, I really didn't expect any, but they wer apreciated.Maybe I'll pepper my blog woth some personal news too, perhaps. goodnight all happy gaming.
