As midnight struck it meant that the fourth X360 Weekender had come to a close and what a record breaking weekend it was, not only did I break the daily unlock record on Sunday but on day three I scored 22 unlocks including a game completion while breaking past 600 achievements and 14k TA for 2013.

X360 Weekender (4) Day Two

Traditionally, the middle day of every X360 Weekender has been the best of the three for the amount of unlocks and in what is the fourth instalment, the tradition continued due to a new record of 29 achievements unlocked beating the previous record of 27 (27/3/11 and 16/6/13) and brought up the total unlocked in the Weekender's to 117 with a day still to go in this one.

CherryHot PotatoThe two hour session which focused around the Warriors' Super League push from 2012 ended with Hot Potato (15G) which ironically came after a cool rally of seven passes in a single tackle and meant after four games played, 19 unlocks for the day so far.

 The night had one last unlock though as a quick jump to Windows 8 and the booting of AlphaJax saw the surprising pop of Expeditiousness (5G) for being the first player on the table to use a Triple Word Bonus tile and in doing so brought the day's haul to a new record of 29 achievements resulting in an accumulation of 330G.
The previous joint-record holding days saw more gamerscore accumulated but it was due to the rarity of some of the achievements whereas in today's instance, most of the unlocks were fairly easy but even so they made for a great day which I hope will be closely matched in the third and final day of the weekend.
