PermalinkGTASC Period 10: First time in first
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.


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....

Peggle 2Aww yiss... Dat CheevThe Aww yiss... Dat Cheev achievement in Peggle 2 worth 459 pointsComplete 240 optional objectives

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:
Assassin's CreedSecret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in Assassin's Creed worth 67 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret 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!

iMaginaryy 1) Kingdom hearts 2
2) Jak 3
3) Final Fantasy 9
4) Spyro: Year of the Dragon
5) Legend of Zelda: Windwaker

A pretty great top 5 :) Love all these. Curious though why you chose 9 of all the Final Fantasy games?

v CARRNAGE Mephisto4thewin: When I say 'win' I mean make it to period 48. But I would be willing to share this with you guys maybe after period 15? I'll prolly need some time to put it down in words.

Jimbot: Started following your blog as well!

iMaginaryy: Final Fantasy 9 was the first one I played but I just love it more than the rest I don't know if it's because it was the first one I played or how much I love the characters.

Xpovos Probably because it was the first you played, that's always special. Items why I have inordinate fondness for 4.

I was going to add some unfavorable comments about 9, but you're right. The characters are great.
