Some things have changed in the past few years with gaming. The most noticeable and annoying really is that I can not longer play with hopes of winning on the insane or hardest mode. I am lucky to make it through on normal. This is well, embarrassing. If you are not familiar with gamer scores on xbox live, when you play through a game you earn achievements as you gain points. Some games have things you find (collectables). The harder the game the more weight your achievements hold. Kind of an egotist thing.
On xbox live you have a gamer tag – mine is kmilyun (surprise) ha ha. Anyone you have as a friend can take a look at what your have been playing and the embarrassing part your achievement awards. Hence I now only have one friend at the moment – our Godson Anthony. That way no one sees my scores LOL.
I remember looking at Mass Effect when the game sold for $59.95 and I decided to wait and purchase it when the price came down. I found the game for under 20 bucks and was contently playing it when the xbox took its crash. So, since I had played over half the game I found a used disc at a local game shop. Yeah. I have now finished the game once – and plan to play it again on the hard level.
After finishing the Mass Effect game I spent way too much time trying to get through a level in Gears of War 2. It frustrated me so much a few months back so I had just set it aside. Well hours later I finally won the level! I went on and completed the game.
Now you might notice the theme of the controller is Gears of War. maybe not hah hah …. silly I know.
What I will be doing now to kill time:
Other news: Corkie is doing super fine in her new home. They have gotten all the bugs worked out and she now knows how to signal the I need to go out. She sleeps cuddled up close on the bed, plays with her rope toy, and is gaining some weight. She sure is one smart little girl too. Her forever home is most pleased to have her as an addition . They walk to the mail box each day and she knows her name and comes when called. I hear she has figured out how to avoid tripping her moms, how to avoid getting her leash tangled with the cane and since the other dog is blind she has figured that out too. I love happy endings :).
