  • Xbox Live Milestone: 30,000 gamerscore

    Just over 2 years ago I crossed the 10,000 mark.  Yesterday, I hit 30,000. The achievement that put me over the top? One Bad Gato from COD: World at War.

  • Catching Up

    A few weeks back, the Deadliest Catch video game came out for the Xbox 360.  Seeing as Diann & I watch the show every week (yeah, we’re addicts), I decided to pick up the game. Lo and behold, a few of the big names from the show would be at my local Gamestop to launch…
