Well, my 360 died, it was bought in April '07, so it just hit the 5-year mark; can anyone top that? :P

Where the F'k is Spud?
Oh hi!

So, my TA participation has been rather low the last couple of months, so I thought I'd explain what the hell I've been doing. And no, don't worry I didn't do anything dumb, like have a family or anything silly like that. laugh

Speedruns and Streamy Stuff
Most of my gaming time has been spent on my stream, I've always streamed a bit of Rock Band and some random other stuff, but more recently I've had more specific projects to bum around with.

I've spent a pretty large amount of time on a speedrun of Lost Odyssey. Extremely challenging and fun, and very addictive, slamming through a 50+ hour game in a day feels pretty boss.
Here's a recent disc 2 run in 1hr 20min, if you're curious.

The other current project that I've just started is a "normal" playthrough of Final Fantasy VII with the "Hardcore" Mod applied. Extremely challenging so far. Still in the Shinra building after about 6 hours of play. Quite fun though.

Achievements
On top of that, I've still been knocking out a couple of achievements; although generally on new games. I've played a bit of Rocksmith now that it's finally out. And my view is that it blows RB3 pro mode right out of the water. I suspect RB4 will need to incorporate the Rocksmith cable and allow real guitar play to remain competitive in that area.

And finally me and psxfreak101 have been having a blast, shooting shit in borderlands 2. I just recently ditched him and got to level 50 without him 'cause I couldn't wait. But he'll forgive me when I show it the 14k damage sniper rifle I found in the process. laugh

I'm currently 3GS away from 60,000 GS which will be my first significant milestone since I hit 100k TA prolly more than a year ago now, haha.

Music!
In non-gaming news; I'm now in a band playing drums; we cover 90's and 00's punk and alternative (Green Day, Foo Fighters, etc, etc). Just plain awesome fun, not too serious. If you look really hard you can check us out playing some Green Day and Pennywise here.

Congrats! What'd you think? Haven't started this one yet but it's in the backlog.

Comment by IHeartParamore at 19:56 on 17 Nov 2017

Not done yet. The 1000G took me less than 50 hours, that's including the 341,000 kills. The main game is very enjoyable in my opinion. Tons of collectibles though,

This was pretty good actually. Shame about the 5 hour kill grind to cap off the PP trials. Had to kill 240,000 zombies AFTER I'd killed 100,004 of the buggers.

Comment by IHeartParamore at 22:55 on 15 Nov 2017

In the end just killed a few each time my gf went for a cigarette (inbetween us playing Chariot)

Another one from the backlog going BC means one less game I have to do on 360 headspin Wanna put the thing away but the end of next year.

Comment by IHeartParamore at 10:50 on 15 Nov 2017

I've been gradually doing umvc3 challenges on Xbox one and I'm up to about 488/500, with quite a few ive done in the past.

Comment by IHeartParamore at 10:51 on 15 Nov 2017

So I'm very confident ill be able to do all 390 on P4A now. When it originally released I felt very out of my depth.
