View Full Version : Greetings from the Bottom of the Pile

I say greetings from the bottom of the pile since my gamescory is only 3076 :p

I'm a 'hoarder' of games, I basically never get rid of or sell any of my games. I also have a backlog of about 100 games to play through, ranging from SNES, wii, PS2, 3360 etc. Someday I will get through all of them.
I don't actually own a 360 but we have two in the dorm common room that I can use. Got a live gold account to play halo 3 online with the roommates. I also started my own 360 collection of games.

As for game types, I am pretty open to most (except perhaps sports games). Big fan of the Halo series, Half-Live and other FPS. But I also really like RPG's, in particular the Tales of Series.

I also am big in to playing (or attempting to) Japanese games. I studied japanese at HS for 3 years and I did a semester study abroad last spring in Tokyo. I know enough to get by in most menu systems, but my grasp of the grammar is very weak. I'm looking to eventually get a JPN 360 to play some of the JPN exclusive games.

I am a senior CS major (doing a extra year because of the study abroad), going after a concentration in Information Assurance. So you will have to forgive me if I get too technical at times :)

Thanks, I also noticed that you have katamari, if you are looking to do the multiplayer achievements let me know, I still need to do those and there are VERY few people playing online now.

I hope to really ramp up my score simply by playing the backlog of 360 games, I have eternal sonata, vesperia, enchanted arms, blue dragon (ya a lot of RPGs I know), mass effect 1 & 2, and ODST to finish playing through. Plus all the stuff my roommates have.

However we have reached finals weeks and I don't want to start anything new right now.

Also I don't actually own a xbox, the ones I use are my roommates, will have to see about getting one from my internship earnings this summer.

This site has a good group of gamers in my experience so far. Plenty of people to boost or just throw down with. Good luck with the Gamerscore...and welcome to x360a!

All gotta start somewhere, on the gamerscore front! Just enjoy it, don't take them too seriously and you'll be fine. (That's right. I basically just committed an act of blasphemy.) :P

And, welcome to the site!!!

Thanks for all the welcomes, I am very impressed by the lack of 'noise' on the forum.

A few quick questions, some are opinion some are on how the site works.

1. How does one edit a achievement 'guide'?

2. Opinion one, should I include my roommates games in my 'game collection'?
