Surprise! “Achievement Unlocked”

I've been going through a pretty dry spell in regards to increasing my Gamerscore. This is mostly due to the fact that new game releases have been trickling out every other week at best for the past couple months. There just isn't a whole lot to play right now on the 360. But here's where the whole achievement points system really shines. When I realized I hadn't gone up a single point in about 2 weeks, I went back and checked out which achievements were still up for grabs in my current games.

Like a Kid in a Candy Store

The past few weeks have been so insanely busy for me. I know I've said this before, but I really don't think I've ever had so much to do in my entire life. I've been working so much that I actually grew intolerant to my chair. I would sit down and immediately stand back up. Just couldn't do it any more. And since this chair is home base for work and play, I found myself in need of a new avenue for entertainment. Since selling my Xbox back in July and Hannah claiming the GameCube as her own, I've only really had my PC for gaming. For whatever reason, I haven't been into watching movies for months now and we might have rented a handful of movies since the summer. Deanna and I used to watch a few movies a week, but for whatever reason, that just stopped. I decided it was time to re-establish some old relationships with my DVD player, GameCube and even picked up another Xbox. And that would be a regular old Xbox, not a 360. Even if I wanted to get an Xbox 360 right now, I couldn't as they're still, 2 months after launch, hard to come by. Now that's just fuckin' ridiculous!
