Not so long ago I wrote an article for GamingBolt about my sordid achievement addiction. In it I mentioned the exploits of one Stallion83, who eventually wants to reach the grand old target of one million gamerscore on his Xbox 360...
...Some of us are a little more committed than others... Pity/admire Stallion83, for example, who currently has a whopping 408,000 gamerscore (I wonder how many RRODs he went through to get this?!) and is on course to reach his ambitious target of one million points. More to the point, by the end of May he wants to have reached the half way mark! Writing on his blog a few days ago, he calculated that to meet this challenge of 100,000G in 159 days, he'd need to gain about 5,000 each week!It got me thinking... I'm gonna set myself a challenge too. My efforts pale into comparison to Stallion, with my paltry score only around 12,000G. And that's taken me about two years!
I’ll be revisiting his blog in the coming months to see how he gets on – and am wondering just how he has so much time on his hands. As far as the majority of achievements go, they are by no means easy to obtain and are often pretty monotonous. Good luck to him.
My next big landmark is the 20,000G level so that's my target. By the end of May, I need another 8,000G! With work, family and blog commitments, I reckon this will be a fair old challenge but I'm going to give it a go. I'll post a few updates here on Megabits over the coming months and let you know how it's going... come on, leave a few comments and cheer me on!
Now where did I put Avatar...?
