Gaming World Records!

Okay so i got interested in looking up World records for gaming and i found these and i thought they were quiet interesting! :) Thought i would share with you guys!!

And five of the best from the Guinness World Records 2008 Gamer's Edition

First console in a nuclear weapons conspiracy
In December 2000, it was reported that the FBI and US Customs were investiga
ting the shipment of up to 4,000 PlayStation 2 console to Iraq. As they were designated videogame systems, rather than hardware, it was rumored that this allowed Saddam Hussein to avoid UN sanctions prohibiting the sale of computer hardware to Iraq. It was speculated that the consoles could be adapted for use as guidance systems for long-range missiles.

Longest prison sentence for playing a videogame
In September 2002, the UK's Faiz Chopdat was jailed for four months for playing Tetris on his mobile phone while on a flight home, "endangering the safety of an aircraft". Cabin staff warned Chopdat twice to turn off the game and he was arrested on touching down in Manchester, UK.

Most broken bones by a sim game
Three players broke their arms on the arcade s
imulator Arm Sprint while testing their strength against the game's mechanised arm. The game's distributor, Atlus, recalled all 150 units for inspection in August 2007 as a precautionary measure. They stated: "We think that sometimes players get overexcited and twist their arms in an unnatural way."

First Second Life millionaire
Anshe Chung (real name Ailin Graef), is an entrepreneur within Second Life. Her character was "born" on 26 March 2004 and is best known for being a virtual real estate broker. In November 2006 it was announced that she
was the first person to achieve a net worth exceeding $1 million, a fact celebrated on the May 2006 cover of BusinessWeek magazine. It also earned her the moniker the Rockefeller of Second Life.

Longest game title
The longest game title was for a Japanese-only P
S2 game released in 2005. It's called White Princess the Second - Yappari Itto ni Ittemo Soujyanakutemo Ok-na Gotsugou Shugi Gakuen Renai Adventure, or in English, White Princess the Second - Love Adventure in the School That Follows the Principle of Convenience, Where It's Okay to Stray From the Path or Stay on the Path.

Fastest Portal completion time
The fastest completion of the PC version of Portal is an impressive 14m 27s by Michael "DemonStrate" Yanni on 26 February 2008. This includes a five second penalty because the demo recording cuts out at the start of each level and the time was officially verified by
(now that is fucking fast)

First country to ban all videogames
On 30 July 2002, the Greek government hastily attempted to curtail illegal gambling by introducing law "3037" banning all electronic games. This, very briefly, led to Greece becoming the first country to ban all videogames, including the innocuous My Little Pony: Best Friends Ball. On 25 September 2002, the law was amended t
o allow the playing of all electronic and computer games providing there was "no financial gain for the player or any third party".

Largest collection of playable videogame systems
In the last decade, 33-year-old Richard Lecce (USA) has amassed the largest collection of playable videogame systems. The 483 pieces include 73 Game and Watches, 260 cartridge or C
D-based systems and another 126 miscellaneous handheld games. He also owns 39 Game Boys and full sets of every game ever released for 12 systems, including the NES, Sega Master System and Atari 5200.

Most technically advanced gaming set-up
Jeremy R. Kipnis (USA) owns the largest, loudest and most expensive gaming set-up. It has taken 38 years of professional experience as an audio-visual engineer to collect the equipment and create an acoustically and optically ideal gaming room. At its loudest, the audio levels reach 132 decibels at one metre from each of the 8.8 surround sound channel arrays; the current screen is a 5.4m x 3m Stewart Snowmatte Unity Gain Laboratory Grade Motion Picture Screen.

Re cap

Well nothing exciting has been going on this week really, i have not finished a game for awhile now! Kinda sucks but I'm use to it..I was pretty suck for about 2days so i didn't get shit done! But this is what i have been doing! Again nothing exciting!

But the only game i have really worked on is bullet witch. I got warned that this game sucks soo much and i should start Fallout 3 before i play this game! However, i didn't think this game was that bad! Don't get me wrong you have to play through it 5 times cause the difficulties don't stack (I hate when developers do this). I think the First play through was the worst cause you got soo lost running around and didn't know where to go or what to do. But after the First play through the game is a breeze, cause you can pretty much run through the game and not fight to much!! However, I fought on all the difficulties up to Chaos mood, cause i wanted to points so i could get my upgrades faster! Currently i have 999 points in this game lmao yea i know im missing 1 point and that is for beating it on HELL mood. EASY was the easiest but after that NORMAL and HARD, and CHAOS all seem to be about the same for the difficulties couldn't really tell the difference. But when i started my First level on HELL there is a huge difference and you die super quickly.. Not sure if I'm going to be doing the rest of the 5 levels on HELL yet.. I should cause i want that 1 point and to 1k the game! but not sure if i can bring myself to spend 5+ hours to get 1point lol!! I might try it again and see how the second level goes but most likely not!!

One other game i started is Civilization revolution, the game was fun at first, but then after i completed the first play through i realized i had no idea what the hell is going on or what i was doing! It seems that it should be a computer game not an Xbox game! I think once maybe you get the hang of it, it wouldn't be to bad, but truly i have no idea what is going on in that game! The first play through was soo easy for me! I had tons of money and was making Money like mad had a huge kingdom and lots of armies! Now i can't even made $2,000 in another play through and not have it take like 40 turns to create an army! I dunno I'll probably give this another shot, but i guess i should maybe read the guide or the booklet lmao!!

In other news GSL is getting crazy all the threads are locked and our team Strategy thread was deleted! The Forums are the best part of GSL and Minty is really taking the fun out of it! Our team is different cause we aren't trying nor are we uploading Dash of Destruction. However, i admit that i loaded it up at the start of the week cause i felt bad joining a gsl and not going by the rules! However through the weeks i decided that minty is just being a bitch, Closing down threads for GIF and other stupid reasons! That i didn't load DoD up at the end of the week, and that would put my score back at 0 for the week! Our team is gonna have 0 points through out the whole GSL cause we won't load up DoD!

The scoring System is awesome and its the best that i have seen! And that is about all that is good in GSL. Really the forums is what sets the GSL, without them its boring. And cause the people that are running the GSL are on some kinda power trip i think they are taking the fun outta it for alot of people! Oh well thank god we aren't in it to play for real that is all i have to say!

Okay so I'm really bad at completing games, and moving onto another one as most of you know. :( hell i have over 100k and I'm only at 60% completion:( I would like to get that up to 70% or even 75%.. However i don't think that will happen anytime soon:(

Anyways these are the games i have been working on..

I started Shaun White. And i was Warned before i borrowed it that it was a tough game. and i didn't take his advice and i decided to play it really how hard can a snowboarding game be.. Well i was wrong it is actually hard, Im use to 1080 snowboarding game for the N64 lmao, i havn't played a snowboarding game since then. And you press the buttons to do tricks and what not.. but this game all you use is the analog sticks, in different directions.. It takes allot of time to get use to this game, but i guess once you get the hang of it, its not too bad.. However there some in game glitches you can use to get all the money you need to buy all the board in game, Which REALLY helps, i couldn't imagine doing this game with the starting board they give you. I'm gonna go back and try to clean up this game a bit more shortly.

I started Turok, and this game Truly sucks.. Its hard on Easy, and there is no way I'm even gonna attempt this on Insane.. The game play is terrible, you move sooo slow and there isn't even a run button. The dinosaurs are soo annoying they just pop outta no where. I'm not quiet sure if I'm gonna finish the story mood it sucks that bad.. I will finish the MP in this game hopefully shortly.. Maybe I'll do it tonight, but hell i have had this game for over a month and i need to get it back:(

Okay FEAR2 I actually really really like this game! I think they did a wonderful job on the story. It's very different and the Ghost and the bad guys are orginal. I have not played any other the other FEARS even though i have FEAR1 sitting here for over 6months! But once I'm done with FEAR2 i will be starting FEAR1..
FEAR2 Is really easy on Hard, but however i noticed that half way though my game that the difficulty has changed on me to easy, so now i have to go back through 4 or 5 mission and do them on hard! Thank got i realized this before i finish the game and started to yell at it, for glitching on me.. haha I would recommenced this game to be a must play! But on a side note there are 2 or 3 achievements that will take quiet a while to get online, its looking like probably over 30 hours I'm not quiet sure though. I have seen this guy on my FL playing Ranked matchs all the time, and i think he has put in over 30hours! i have not decided if I'm gonna do the Ranks, cause this is a gamefly game and i would like to get another game. but we shall see!

I just finished CARS today, it wasn't that bad of a game really. Don't get me wrong the game was boring and sucked, but i have played worse kids games and its an easy 1k. The post cards took a bit of time, but were easier then CARS National Meters.. so i can deal with getting 20 postcards.. A couple of them where tricky.. Over all the game i think took me 7hrs but i didn't over a couple days. cause i can't stand playing Kids games staright lol..

I started on NFS Undercover, the game seems pretty easy, and i think the only thing that is gonna take awhile is the MP. not looking forward to that.. I have 380 points in the game and im hoping to get the Single player done today and start on the MP tonight. So i can move on to bigger and better things lol.. I have Fallout 3 just sitting here, and i want to play it, but i just don't want to put 50hrs into it right now, so im gonna be holding off on that game for a bit.

I just bought a tons of new games.. ekk and i won't even tell you what they are cause they are just horrible games to buy.. lol some easy some might takes awhile.. but all in all my game collection is starting to return with the count now at 130 once i get the games in that i ordered. I started to sell the games I've 1k, no point in having them anymore i have to make room on my self for more games! right now i have only 42 RETAIL games complete.. LOL i know sad right, but its okay im not a completionist like some. Well enough talk now, back to gaming :)

Friday, February 6, 2009

I want to apologize, for not updating this very often.. but the Truth is i haven't really done much of anything, I feel like I'm burnt out a little bit after getting my 100k. And i know that has to stop, i need keep pushing forward and try to get to 110k then so on..

I finished up Jericho today. The sad part that the game is soo easy maybe 8hr max and it took me 2 days cause im kinda slow right now.. The game has some easy Cheat codes you can put in, which makes it soo much faster!! the game would actully be kinda hard with out them.. Over all i actully like the game, I thought it had some ideas in it. And the game play wasn't to bad.. Some parts got kinda annoying when you had to keep switching between different characters.. There wasn't a hard part in the game, i think it was the cheat codes, but i don't think i would have enjoyed it with out them haha!!

On another note, Man i don't even know where to begin about this GSL. Can we say Power Trip and Drama.. First of all there was a huge debate about people have second accounts and people that were banned starting up another account blah blah blah.. We the GSL staff could not find any proof, so they say, but i have a feeling they didn't look very hard. Cause i found some proof out on an account in little of 2mins with Google. So i posted it and i get yelled at for posting it publicly.. Never once got a thank you or anything for it. well shit i take that Back Roxy did tell me Thank you after the fact of me bitching about it in a group.. then Minty writes this

Cru, stop talking shit. I said thanks to you on MSN yesterday. I said thanks, but next time send it in private. If you want to deny it then fine, but we both know it happened. Now grow up, stop moaning, or stay away from GSL like you were going to originally.

and this comes from the same person that says public outings are bad.

Minty writes
Doing it in public like that is just creating more and more arguements...
And cru, that was different. If you suspect people of cheating, let the staff deal with it. Backseat modding isnt good for anyone.

This makes me soo mad cause Minty is the biggest hypocritic i have ever met. He publicly outs some on x360a but tells me and someone else to post it and do the dirty work cause he can't do it cause hes an admin.. I'll have to say i didn't feel bad about outing this girl cause she completely lied! But For Minty to say public outings are bad is just hypocritcal.

That is to make long story short. but if you want to read more about this you can read it here

I personally don't know what his problem is but he has something or what should i say someone so far up his ass that he can't think straight and as gone on a huge power trip. Sending infractions cause they post a picture of his cat, i mean really.. i dont' even know what else to say about this.

Sadly im gonna say that this GSL is gonna fail HUGE and its all gonna be because of Him..I can't wait to see the up comming weeks of GSL it will be a good

14,662 month score increase :)

Okay time for my monthly update.. Shit i can't remember what i all did this month beside play the shit outta games and get my 100k so im gonna post my weekly recaps from 360voice. From January 1st to February 1st.. Woat i did at least 2k a week.. Now if only i can keep that up:/

Weekly Recap - Jan 5 2009

An increase of 2225 points makes for a nice bounty. Those 75 achievements were worth it I guess! In the 'new game' category, I only have one to talk about... Quantum of Solace.

Weekly Recap - Jan 12 2009

our score bounced 2015 freakin' points! Can you believe it? In one week? YES! Getting 85 achievements has that effect. Out of all the possible new games we could have tried this last week, CRU x360a and I only tried one of them: Hardwood Hearts.

Weekly Recap - Jan 19 2009

Too bad gamerscore isn't money because with an increase of 3947 points we could make some bank. Yay for 169 achievements! w00t! I was lucky enough to sample 2 new tasty treats during the week! Game names are Secret Service, and You're in the Movies.

CRU x360a's Weekly Recap - Jan 26 2009

The gamerscore increase was just insane. I didn't think it would be possible to get 3700 points in such a short span of time but we did. Who knew 102 achievements could be worth that much? I convinced CRU x360a to try 3 games last week: Interpol, NCAA® March Madness®08, and The Maw.

Weekly Recap - Feb 2 2009

An increase of 3475 points makes for a nice bounty. Those 148 achievements were worth it I guess! I was lucky enough to sample 3 new tasty treats during the week! Game names are Disney Bolt, Fallout 3, and LOTR: Conquest.


What is LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLO you might ask well its our awesome GSL "gamer score league" team
I swore i would never do another GSL ever again cause of the x360a last one.. The one had me soooo heated everything went so wrong with it!! then after seeing X3h GSL i was like my god Nobody can run a GSL.. Personally i don't think this GSL is gonna be any different. I give it about 3weeks (and yes that is generous) until the Forums are shut down. Teams start falling apart, but Our team is gonna be LOLing it up!! adding comments here and there trying to possibly lighten the mood up. and if the Forum are closed, I think someone can start a GSL social group hahahah that would be awesome..

Anyways it wasn't my idea to join this GSL i literally got Dragged into to..

MajinFro grabbed and dragged me by my hair and said listen up Bitch, your gonna join our GSL weather you like it or not. Yes he laid the smack downPhotobucket

Then Rand al simply says your gonna join our gsl team or your off the Friends listPhotobucket I know i was shocked in horror too. I love my Rand alPhotobucket

Blind says if you don't join our gsl team this is what im gonna do to myselfPhotobucket

Omega Deez is my stalker and hes the one that came into my house and signed my name upPhotobucket

While all this is going on you can hear Apple LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOing it up..Photobucket

Even Though Stallion isn't on our GSL team, He's the one that is gonna sit back and make Music videos lmao.Photobucket

So there you have it, i was forced into this. See how much i am loved:) But there is one thing that i can assure you is that we are gonna set a couple GSL records :)
