The Road To a 10k Week Looked Like This.

I started out on this endeavor to grab 10k in a week. This is not easy for me anymore due to parental responsibility. However, I set a goal, got my wife on board, and came up with a shitty plan to execute it.

The first few days were horrible, but it all picked up by Friday. Then it slowed down. At one point I wasn't sure I was going to get through it, I tried to get Fallout 3 (PC) to get that instant GS boost, but no go, it kept crashing. I powered through some games and finished with a great game (Valiant Hearts).

So, the road looked like this.

Cars 2 (1k)
Green Lantern (1k)
The Smurfs 2 (1k)
Phineas and Ferb: Cool Stuff (1k)
Another World (1k)
Loco Cycle (1k, and it was painful...terrible game)
Toy Story Mania (1k, easy under 4 hours)

Those were all my completions and I had a few games where I got them as far as I wanted to take them, then they became time sinks. I played:

NACAR: Unleashed (790pts)
TMNT (880pts)
Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked (700pts and learned some sweet dance moves)
Valiant Hearts (820pts, had 120 from previous month and left 60pts on it for now)

Miscellaneous:
Wolfenstein: 20pt
Treasure Hunt: 10pts
Battle Block Theater 10pts

Grand Total: 10, 230pts...I will take my badge now. Thank you.
Video games are like life, difficult, frustrating, but most of all, they're fun and rewarding when you slow down and enjoy them.
Nice job!!! I don't imagine I'll ever even try for it!
Big congrats Zombie! I knew you could do it, with better planning in advance you would have had no problem. I don't advise anyone goes for 10k in a week without planning planning planning!
Nice job, congrats!

Since LIVE was acting up last night GTN didn't pick up about 800pts. Hope it gets sorted out.
