Well over a year ago, I signed my gamertag up to http://www.360voice.com. If you haven’t been on it before, it’s a brilliant website that creates a day to day blog from your xbox’s point of view. If you’re a bit of a gamerscore whore, then this is a site I recommend you joining. Today, I finally had a look at my gamerscore gain graph and was actually quite shocked to see what came back. Well, by shocked, I mean it makes sense.
I’ve added lines to the graph to help with some of the graph breakdown. Firstly, the red line is the day after my university’s freshers’ week. There’s quite a noticable jump. You can see exactly what I’ve been up to since starting uni :). This is also the same time when I bought King Kong and Stranglehold, games I’d recommend you steer clear of unless you want some gamerscore. With that said however, I can’t bare to go back to King Kong after my first session with it. I’ve only bagged 200 or so Gamerscore from it but the sheer awfulness of it outweighs the gamerscore.
Also on the graph are a blue and yellow dot, both at the start points of low gamerscore gain. The blue dot is the start of the christmas period. Not alot of xbox achievement gaming went on, mostly just Halo 3 and WoW. The yellow dot is the week that my XBox died (grrrrrr). I don’t consider myself a gamerscore whore, but I’m really starting to get back in to the achievement system. I think my gamerscore should see a healthy increase over these next few months.
