September Begins With Trials Fusion

The Bike is Your Hula Hoop in Trials Fusion (Xbox One)After the joy of ending August by reaching my 100,000G goal, September began with an afternoon session on Trials Fusion which resulted in a single unlock in the shape of The Bike is your Hula Hoop (20G) for scoring 20,000 points from one jump on an FMX track.

August 2014 Summary

August became the first month of the year not to include a century of achievements but with good reason as final week focused around the final push for the all-time goal of 100,000G.

Also the month has included the most TA points accrued in a single year beating the record which had lasted since 2010.

August 2014 (2013 in brackets)

93 Achievements unlocked (68)

15 Games played  (9)

4111 A points (1446) 

2375 Gamerscore (1075)

This year looks set to be the best ever on all fronts and will certainly see the most gaming goals reached in a single year with the next big gamerscore goal now at 125,000G.

FIFA Street Success Seals 100,000G Goal

After seven years, one month and five days, I can finally say that I have completed my all-time gaming goal of reaching 100,000 gamerscore. I did so with a final plan featuring three games that I selected only recently in order to reach 10,000G on the Xbox One and 90,000G across the Xbox 360 and Windows 8 platforms.

Tower Up in SEGA Mega Drive Ultimate CollectionThe hallowed day began with a play on Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection on the Xbox 360 and had a go on the Golden Axe II game and eventually unlocked Tower Up (35G) for completing the third level entitled 'Tower Level'.

Roger That! in Crimson DragonNext up was a quick go on Crimson Dragon on the Xbox One and a quick achievement in the shape of Roger That! (20G) after issuing the wingman communicator and issuing a voice command which put my Xbox One total to 10,000G and left my overall total just 100G from the 100,000G.

World Grand Champion in FIFA StreetDue to having planned my last unlock for the goal, only a quick play on FIFA Street was needed in order to unlock World Grand Champion (100G) for winning stage four of the World Tour and in doing so put my Xbox 360/Win 8 total to 90,000G and my overall total to 100,000 which seemed the best place to end the day and the month itself. 

A video of the final day can be seen below with some of the best images of the achieved goal....
