Another milestone reached

Sure, it only took me two measly years to get here, but I finally hit 10,000 Gamerscore today. I hit 5,000 exactly two years ago. What a coincidence!

I am especially proud of this milestone, since the achievement that put me over the edge was the “Big Cheese of the South Seas” achievement from Hexic HD. Not exactly the easiest one for me to get. You might say it was a real achievement.

Here’s to hoping it doesn’t take me another two years to hit 20k!

Minor milestone

I finally broke the one thousand mark on my gamerscore. Last night I finished a mission in Hitman: Blood Money (worth 25 points! For one mission!) and now I have hit a minor milestone. Sure, there may be guys out there with 100k gamerscores (okay, maybe there’s only three of them), but who really wants to play all those games?
