At 7:58p, I defeated the Joker, the final boss of Batman: Arkham Asylum for the Xbox 360. This is the twenty-third game cleared in 2011. Twelve games remain for the 2011 challenge.

This evening, my Xbox/Games For Windows Live Gamerscore exceeded 21000 points. The achievement that put me over this plateau was “Home Sweet Home (10G)” from Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure. My current count for achievements, according to the Xbox 360 dashboard, is 1244 individual achievements across 139 games, totaling 21005 points. The average value of each achievement is 16.89 points, with an average count of 151.12 points per game (the Xbox Dashboard reports 21.16% gamerscore completion and 27.16% achievement completion, with seven fully-completed games). It took 121 days to reach this point from the previous plateau of 20305 on July 24th, 2011. 56 achievements were collected in this time, totaling 700 points, with an average value of 12.5 points, and a collection rate of one achievement approximately every 2 days, 3 hours, 51 minutes, and 26 seconds.
At 10:43p, I defeated Bowser, final boss of Super Mario 3D Land for the 3DS. This is the twenty-first game cleared in 2011. Fourteen games remain for the 2011 challenge.
Allow me to be perfectly clear on one point.
Demonstrating peacefully is not terrorism.
Schoolyard bullying is.
So, I know this is a little short notice, but one of the things I’m doing this weekend is helping out with the Kurokiiro Maid Cafe’s Child’s Play Gaming Marathon. Basically, starting in less than four hours, you can watch cute maids play video games for 25 hours straight, and if that sight moves you– which it should– we’d appreciate some donations to the annual charity fund.
And before anyone asks, no, I am not wearing a maid outfit. Yes, I know what that paragraph sounds like, but just trust me, petticoats aren’t my thing. Well, they are, just not wearing them. Not wearing them myself. This paragraph has just gone somewhere dark and horrible.
……y’know what, just go watch the maids, OK?
You may have seen this already, but just in case, go to Google and enter the phrase “do a barrel roll” without the quotes.
THIS IS A THING NERDS DO
There are a lot of advantages to having a very active social life, but there are also drawbacks. I’m certainly not the most outgoing person in the world, though, and I greatly admire my friends who seem to do so much more than I do.
Now, if they’d just lend me their time machines, things would be OK…
I have a rather interesting question about human behavior. Why is it that people will approach a meetup for a sale made via Craigslist like a hostage situation, replete with a wingman and needing to be in broad daylight at a public place, but then at the same time turn around and hand over their address and bank account information to a complete and total stranger via the Internet without the slightest regard for who may obtain this information?
For the record, I was a good person and deleted the accounts off of the hard drive once I got the Xbox home. It’s just very strange how people can be so bloody stupid at times.
