A couple of shout outs before we start: I'd like to thank Fury87 and Xpovos for becoming followers as always let me know if you have any questions.
FIRST PLACE ON THE TEAM LADDER!
It was truly a team effort to get there unfortunately the TA scanners had an error and we missed the bonus, but we made up for it in the end with the bonus for first so life moves on.
What a week though it was the first week i went hardcore doing high TA achievements, preloading a bit, and really getting a feel for where this competition is heading. It's safe to say i can score pretty highly in a week when i wasn't home one day and worked 40 hours. Also not using any preloaded achievements and preloading some more. It was really a great way to see that i can make it far in this competition, i can say i can make it far but to actually see that i can? It puts a whole different perspective on things. So without further interruptions....
PRELOADED ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE WEEK:
Unfortunately i didn't preload all i wanted to so I'm looking at preloading about 2k this week mainly because we had first and i needed a break from all the gaming i did saturday. Currently working on Layers of Fear and preloading that big one in Hawken for 800ish TA. Thats about 1600 right there.
As for the solo bonus: As you notice I'm playing those older games to keep the decay as low as possible i'm gonna go for the 4034 TA for the multiple of 2017. It's the best one as i really just want to do i week of preloading and maybe start another Rare replay game, prolly a viva pinata.
So i wanted to do something special for this blog and since only one person got back to me i guess we're talking about me:
My favorite games:
I'll give you the top 5
1) Kingdom hearts 2
2) Jak 3
3) Final Fantasy 9
4) Spyro: Year of the Dragon
5) Legend of zelda: Windwaker
Yeah i know none of those are on xbox but those are my favorite. Don't get me wrong i love xbox games as you can tell by my gamerscore, i guess i just like the classics.
What got me into achievement hunting:
I said this before i had any followers but it was really assassin creed 1 and this achievement:
I missed this the first time through and played the whole thing again just to get this one achievement and it was all down hill from there. I loved achievements and the first goal i ever had was to reach 100,000 gamer score which i did but the second goal was 250,000 (which i will have at the end of the comp). I love unlocking achievements and the sense of accomplishment that comes with it.
Where i see my life going:
I bought an engagement ring this week (why i wasn't here friday) and will probably get married next year. It's hard to show you the excitement over this blog but I'm super excited! She's the most amazing person i know and let's me indulge in this habit of mine. She's truly turned my life around.
Of course if you ever want to know more about me or more about my strategy to win this whole thing just make sure to ask. Thanks guys!
P.S I would love to make the blog leaderboards by the end of this comp so i know it's super duper annoying to ask this but I was hoping you guys could spread the word maybe you know some people who like reading this kind of thing. If not that's cool its truly an honor anyone wants to read this so i really mean it when i say thank you!
