My Silver XBL Account
Took a while, but I set up my Silver XBOX Live Account. I can't do much without paying for a Gold Membership (including playing with friends, which is a shame) unfortunately, but my Gamertag is "ACO ZBFAN" (it's even displayed in the lower right side of this account).
So, for taking a break on the MAJOR games I'm supposed to be playing (Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, MGS: Peace Walker, and BioShock 1), I've been revisiting not one, but TWO LEGO games. LEGO Star Wars II (which I previously played and beat on the GameCube, and is on my own list on this site, but this time I'm playing the 360 version, which we got during the time I got LEGO LOTR, PDZ, Batman: Arkham City, while others got Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and MGS HD Collection, but I never brought it up) and Lord of the Rings, which are both great games, but out of boredom, I chose to get some achievements, which is what I want to briefly talk about.
Honestly, I never considered them to be an essential reason to pick up said console, nor do I care to get them all for EVERY game and I stand by what I said about me living fine without them, but ever since I got the 360 and got some more achievements for the hell of it when I revisited LEGO LOTR, they can be kind of fun sometimes (Right now, I'm trying to beat the Free Play missions in LEGO Star Wars II without dying as there are several achievements for those, and they can be a challenge to get). Though some achievements can be quite stupid (LEGO Lord of the Rings gives you an achievement for completing a level in co-op. Yay! *sarcasm*), but sometimes clever (LEGO LOTR does poke fun at the Sean Bean "One does not simply" meme). Either way, still nothing big and is there only for the fun of it.
A bad Pokemon design
I admit, as much as I love Pokemon, I've been WAY behind on the games (these days, it's one of my younger brothers playing them), even the remakes of my favorite in the series (HeartGold and SoulSilver are remade versions of Gold/Silver/Crystal). But while I'm looking forward to Pokemon X/Y, there is this new Pokemon design that gets to me. This is what you get when you cross Mewtwo with a Xenomorph from Aliens, a fusion that looks horrible.
That's it for me.
