One of the features of the 360 and One are achievements (PS3 and PS4 have trophies). I was on a 447 day streak of getting achievements and yesterday that came to a screeching hault. I am saddened that it has ended. I simply forgot about it yesterday and didn't remember. So, here I pay tribute to the games that helped me get to a 447 day streak...
Watch Dogs...Not a terrible game, terrible story though.
WWE 2K14...Just like every WWE 2K game.
Saints Row the Third...Far more enjoyable than I though it would be.
Peggle...Still fun after all these years.
Jeopardy!...Because I like trivia and it was only $1.
Forza 3...Because I wanted to abuse myself and win every championship.
Bully: Scholarship Edition...Because I never finished it back in 2008 when I rented it.
The Walking Dead: Season 2...Awesome game, awesome story. Wait, that was Season 1.
Skyrim...The funnest game I ever played. 300 hours on my character.
Motocross Madness...Because it was free.
Far Cry 3...Much like Saints Row 3, far more enjoyable than I thought it would be.
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light...Because it was free.
DJ Hero...Because I wanted to try it and it was hella fun.
DJ Hero 2...See above.
Foriza Horizon...I'm at a loss of words.
Tomb Raider...Because it was free and I already played it on PS3. I played that game twice in a year. What the hell?
Batman: Arkham City...More specifically Harley's Revenge DLC. Because I was too lazy to finish it when it came out.
Batman: Arkham Origins...I wanted to play it before Arkham Knight.
PowerGig: Rise of the Six String...Because I wanted to punish myself.
Grand Theft Auto V...Do I need to?
Zoo Tycoon...Because it was the only game I had for my Xbox One when I got it, because Best Buy sucks at shipping their products.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes...Because Amazon's shipping is fast and Best Buy's sucks.
Dead Rising 3...Because I love the franchise and zombies.
Forza 5...Because I wanted to bore myself with more racing than you can shake a stick at.
WWE 2K15...Still just like every WWE 2K game.
BioShock Infinite...More Specifically Buried at Sea: Episode 1...Because I love this game.
Nicktoons MLB...Because I'm an achievement whore and it was $1.
Mirror's Edge...Because I never finished...And still haven't.
Brother's: A Tale of Two Sons...Because it's awesome and sad. I do have a heart.
#IDARB...I don't remember what the hell this was.
Far Cry 4...I never finished it, because it's boring.
South Park: The Stick of Truth...Maybe the funniest game ever made.
The Orange Box...Specifically Half Life 2 and Half Life 2: Episode 1....Because I wanted to replay them.
Left 4 Dead...Because I was bored.
Forza Horizon Presents Fast & Furious...Because it was free.
Forza Horizon 2...Because the Horizon series is actually fun.
Batman: Arkham Knight...Well, it's Batman. I was Batman.
There we have it. The list of games that helped me get to a 447 day achievement streak...I will never forget them. Truth be told though, I haven't really been in the gaming mood since beating and 100% Arkham Knight, I had been using App achievements to bolster that streak.
Ok, since that's out of the way, the original title of this blog was going to be - The Panini Experiment, Day 5: Citizen Panini - because I've been naming the days after movie franchises, if anybody hasn't noticed. Day 1 was a generic title, day 2 was after Terminator 2, day 3 was for Die Hard 3, day 4 was for James Bond 4 and today's was suppose to be for the Toxic Avenger 4. But, whatever, lets rip into this Panini pack...
Jeremy Lamb, #248 rookie card. Double.
Anthony Davis, #241 rookie card. Double. I guess that's good to have. I bet Luke Zeller is next.
Luke Zeller, #298 rookie card. Double and Ha-ha.
Kent Bazemore, #256 rookie card. Double.
Isaiah Thomas, #214 rookie card. Double.
Bernard James, #271 rookie card. Double.
Mike Scott, #228 rookie card. Double.
I need to scan this next one....One momento por favor.
Front and back shot. Manu Ginobili and Gordon Hayward Matching Numbers. Not really feeling these inserts.
Caron Butler. #29. Freshness.
His name is Jonas. #86.
DeJuan Blair, #44.
Al Jefferson, #2. Why is this set alphabetized by first name? That's odd.
Eric Maynor, #60.
John Salmons, #84.
Adrian Dantley, #176. I have to give it up to Panini, they picked some great looking shots for the retired guys.
Pau Gasol, #133.
Larry Legend, #190. And what I said about the retired players getting greats shots. Scratch that. lol
Russell Westbrook, #148. That card is bright.
Luc Mbah a Moute, #106. Ironically enough, the same sound I make when eating peanut butter.
Tony Parker #164 rounds out this pack.
Doubles on the rookies, which I believe may be the case for the rest of the packs, I may have them all, I'm not 100% on that. Freshness all around on the current players and retired guys and a "meh" insert.
Final tally before I wrap up this long ass entry...274/300. Four more packs to go. 26 out of 80 need to be fresh.
Tomorrow will also be a long entry, maybe - if I can get to the post office, two big packages waiting for me (not in the gay way - not that I wouldn't mind). I've been waiting on both of them for awhile.
Thank you for reading come back tomorrow for more blabbing.
