Scoring Period: October 30 - November 5, 2017
Ending Gamerscore: 516,315

Another stressful week earning another That Was Close badge. Pretty happy we ended up with another 6K in bonuses though. Super stressful though. I'd like to say we're done with those last place badges. It worked out really well for us though. Team right below us wasn't really playing and we were a bit up on them after bonus usage. Last place team we saw had 3K unscanned we knew they'd scan in right before cutoff to jump us. So thanks to them we got a bunch of badges. Much appreciated smile.

I actually played several games that I like this week. Shocking, I know! Killing Floor 2 was fun with the group. Wish the glitch still worked for the harder achievements though. Morphite was a pretty nice chill game. Would have played more of it, but it's a longer one and the cheevos weren't coming quick enough. Had fun letting Balarush drag me through RE5 with his rocket launcher. Really enjoying Slayaway Camp. Nice little puzzle game. And finally I was way to into Kitty Powers' Matchmaker. I will not allow myself to touch this game again until the competition is over. Cheevos are slow to come by, but I'm weirdly addicted to playing it. My teammates thought I was crazy laugh.

Started and finished Bulb Boy for some quick points too. Really wasn't into it. Weird game. Just don't get it. But it's done and deleted now.

I also finished off Order and Chaos on my WP this week. Really didn't want to use it, but with Gameloft just shutting down servers without any warning, I was not going to take that chance. Put too many hours into the Win 8 version to not cross pop it on my phone.

Here's to another week of crazy toast.

That's it for now!

Scoring Period: October 23-29, 2017
Ending Gamerscore: 509,505

Games Completed: 1

Back to a more normal week last week. Actually scored sorta on the low side. Needed a bit of a break and was super busy with a buddy that came into town at last minute.

Our team ended up getting the That Was Close Badge last week in GTASC. It was the last badge we needed to round out the full house. Stressed me out so bad though. Went off to my daughter's ringette stuff and I didn't even want to check my phone when I got out of the rink. Really happy we got it, but YIKES!

I was pretty happy with some clean up that I did this week. Started and finished The Bridge. That one was alright. A lot faster than I thought it would be. Of course I used a guide for the whole thing.

Played the new Artifex Mundi game Abyss. More of the same fare. Really wish all their PC stuff would get achievements. That would be super.

Started up Fortnite. Bought it on sale. Looks sort of interesting. I played it alone though. Think it could be a lot of fun with some friends.

Also started God of Light this week. I really like this one. Finally a puzzle game that doesn't stress me out. It was actually sort of relaxing.

I tried to finish off In Between. At the last level and it is a *****! Seriously. Every level in this damn game that is long has a mid-level save. But this last level which is the worst of course doesn't. I also had issues with every last level in the last chapter glitching out on me somehow. I will come back to this one when I'm not so frustrated with it. Really annoying.

I'm really happy that we're finally reaching November and the last bit of this year's GTASC. I need to stop staring at Final Fantasy XV on my game's list.

That's it for now!

Permalink2017: Week 42 - 500,000 GamerScore Milestone!
Scoring Period: October 16-22, 2017
Ending Gamerscore: 504,815
Gamerscore Increase: 13,079
Games Completed: 10

Well I finally hit my 500,000 GamerScore milestone. It feels pretty good. I popped my first Xbox achievement on September 19, 2010 with
Halo: ReachMake it DrizzleSnipedByAGir1The Make it Drizzle achievement in Halo: Reach worth 11 pointsPurchase any item from the Armory.

I didn't really become an achievement hunter until around July, 2012 though. In September of that year I stumbled upon TrueAchievements while looking up some solutions for Dragon Age: Origins. The first boosting session I ever signed up for on this site is the only one I've ever missed redface. Didn't realize the time was military time, so I signed up for a session that was like 5AM my time and of course I wasn't awake. Since those early days this site has become a daily part of my life. I've met some really good friends through here. Balarush and oxy71 have been there near the very beginning for me with our Tomb Raider boosting sessions. Then Danno Omen had to come along and really suck me into all this GTASC stuff. Anyway, I would have never hit 500K if it weren't for this site. GTASC has certainly made me hit it a lot earlier than I ever would have. I'm pretty sure after this year, my scoring will slow down dramatically. Only because I plan on playing actual good stuff (like the long RPG stuff that I love) and none of this ACA BS.

I had another motivator for hitting 500K last week. I was hoping to win an Xbox One X from Microsoft Canada. I'm pretty sure I didn't, as people started new tags and some people just scored an ungodly amount of GamerScore. I put in a decent effort though and scored 31,194 GS over 26 days on my own tag. With my schedule I was pretty happy with that.

So this week I'd just like to say thanks to my friends on here. Thanks to my GTASC teammates. You guys always keep it fun and interesting. Here's to the next 500K toast.

That's it for now!

Ending Gamerscore: 491,736

Crazy week like most lately. My weekend are definitely not relaxing now with all of the extra curricular crap that I and my kids are involved in. I did manage to score quite a bit this week regardless.

Thanks to Balarush for helping our team out with Divinity this week. Standing there while he loaded up saves and everything popped was quite joyful. Those points sort of fell into our lap so it was a really nice surprise.

Last week I start up Mystik Belle. I think it's a pretty short game and easy except for the speed run it has. I got to this part with frogs and if you mess up you just keep going around in a circle so I got frustrated and rage quit. I'll probably get back to it.

Played Decay the Mare as well. Glad there was nothing really scary in it. I was worried about that but luckily Dan and Steve were slightly ahead of it on me and told me it was all good laugh. I can't handle that stuff lol!

Played through Armikrog as well. Ok point and click game and pretty quick.

Started up Lilith-M this week too. Have a lot left to do in it, but it's a neat little puzzle game.

Got my 50 snowball fights done in Frozen Freefall (360) ... cause you know I don't preload laugh!

Also finished off a fair bit o Telltale fare.

Next week I'm scoring like a crazy person to hit 500K. Also wouldn't mind winning this Xbox One X Microsoft Canada is giving away headspin!

That's it for now!

Permalink2017: Week 40 - Needed to Chill
Scoring Period: October 2-8, 2017
Ending Gamerscore: 483,226
Gamerscore Increase: 5,140
Games Completed: 2

Sort of tight week for gaming. Holiday weekend here in Canada, so the husband and I went up to the cottage to close things up. Also invited the neighbors up one night so I didn't really have time to game. I try to keep all my gaming craziness on the down-low. I mean my husband already knows I'm a total nutbar. The neighbor's don't need in on that little fact laugh.

Actually had fun playing Uno with some of the team this week. Brought Balarush in on the fun. I know he loves me for it.

I'm really excited about my Lies of Astaroth deck right now. Actually breaking in the 90's in the dungeon now. The last special event card Princess Sakura is really helping out. I also managed to get my Magical Puppeteer finally. Thanks DANIELJJ14 for some of the deck advice. I really still need a Heaven's Keeper card to finish it off. I'm at the point I actually might pay money on this crap if it shows up in the store.

I started up Tokyo 42 last week. Seems interesting. Might go back to it ... Ratios are pretty good in it.

Started and finished the Food Run too. Nice easy game. So is War Planet Online. At least the first 850 Gamerscore of it. This last 150 will take a while.

I tried playing Cuphead last week. Can't believe I bought that. I totally suck. Wish it was online co-op and not just local. I'll have to talk one of the kids into playing it with me.

Back to regular work and gaming and sitting in cold rinks for me this week. No more chillin at the cottage really. Dock is out and too cold to swim now. Guess will head back around the holidays and have some epic family hockey game or something.

That's it for now!
