Video Games, Achievements & Movies
Well I don’t have an achievement challenge or anything set up yet, but I’ve decided the first thing to do is take my rightful place at the top of the NPP Leaderboard. This is probably going to be difficult, as nateeasy is #1 at the moment and looking at his list, he plays a LOT of motherfucking games. He’s also got some of the easier achievements though like Avatar and the 06 sports games, which may be enough to convince me to rent those games and do some easy achievement boosting.
We’ll see though – as dumb as it sounds, playing those types of games really makes me feel like I’m “abusing” the achievements. I’ll probably not bother with the easy boosting right now. Anyhoo I just added 2000 to my gamerscore, as I wrapped up Sonics Ultimate Genesis Collection and Gun yesterday, and got 1000 gamerscore points in each. Gun was pretty fun if short, and playing the Sonic Genesis Collection was awesome for a lot of nostalgia. Just a pity so many of the games sucked, and there really should’ve been a lot more games on it. Oh well.
Next up to play is Mass Effect & Skate for the 360, and Resident Evil 4 for the Gamecube(on the Wii). Looking forward to all 3.
Also I decided today I just can’t combine watching TV and doing work, particularly while watching The Shield. The Shield is just too fucking good, and I can’t concentrate on it and work at the same time. So I’m going to take at least an hour a day and just watch The Shield, while I’ll watch movies during work. I’ve seriously got a pile of over 100 movies sitting here on my “to watch” list, and thankfully I never have to pay full attention to most flicks.
So I’ve started today – Lucky Number Slevin is the first of many movies I should be going through.
