Gamerscore Milestone: 21000 Points

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.

Around The Clock

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?

A Matter Of Trust

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.
