In the interest of full disclosure, I would like 
all you dear readers to know that I have, in fact, 
been living under a rock, in a deep, dark cave far 
beneath the ocean floor. Now that I have that out 
there, I have a question for you: Have you heard 

For my fellow underside-of-a-rock dwellers, it's a 
in various genres. What makes it way cooler than 
any of the myriads of other Flash gaming sites out 
there, though, is precisely the same thing that 
generally makes me choose a 360 version of a game 
over PS3 when given a choice: Achievements! Oh 
yes, nerd points, you keep me coming back. As if 
Flash-based games weren't addictive enough, 
Kongregate implements one of the neatest features 
of the 360, bringing the achievement-hunting, 
point-accumulating addictiveness of Live to the 
browser game.

To be clear, I've never been the achievement whore 
type. I might check out the list of Achievements 
beforehand just to get an idea of what to expect, 
but I've spent exactly no time in the specific 
pursuit of any certain Achievement. I like the 
idea of just playing the damn game for the game 
that it is, and if I unlock any cheevos along the 
way, then hooray! I think this is close to what 
Microsoft intended when they first implemented 
them. And I've managed to rack up 4000-something 
points over the past couple of years by playing 
this way, which isn't too shabby.

Now if you'll excuse me, my Kongregate account is 
anxiously awaiting my arrival at Lvevel 2.

A Journal Entry: The Time I Tried to Play Call of Duty 4 on Veteran.

Yeah yeah, I get it. Bang bang, run run, flashbang through the door. No, I don't want to play on normal. Yes, I do know that you reccomended it to me, thank you.

Crew Expendable
This doesn't look too bad at all. Hell, it seems like all these guys are drunk or asleep!
Oh damn! It's either been way too long since I've played this or I am already in over my head...
What? I died escaping the ship? I didn't even know you could do that.

This is more like it. I can work with these guns. You mean I can just hang way back and pop guys in the head like this was Halo 3? Good times.
Hey, these night vision goggles really do make it too easy!

Charlie Don't Surf
Okay, lets do this.
Hello shotgun, you are my new best friend.
Shit! Oh Shit!
Ugh. I understand the concept of the grenade indicator, damn it.
Alright, TV station, it's just you and me now. I can totally do this. I got this, just gotta take it one step at a...fuck.
Fuck! God damn it! Damn, god damn, damn shazzam!



[Edit] The Every Time I played Mega Man 9

Oh man, listen to that music! This is awesOH NO
