GOW3 - Finally Boosted to Level 100

Ever since I got the Xbox 360 public beta to test for new desktop, I wasn't able to load up a guest account in GOW3.  Now that the beta is over and I have the full desktop load back, I can once again load a guest account.

Two days ago, I setup my Xbox to boost up some points.  I forgot all about my Hori controller moving and not staying on target.  So I didn't gain any experience at all.

So yesterday I started around 7 pm to try to get it setup right before I let it run through the night.  My first attempt, the controller moved where I was looking and didn't stay on target.  On my second attempt and I actually got it to stick and not move.  However, the guy getting the gun kept pushing it out of range no matter how I set it up.  So every 10 mins, he wasn’t picking up the gun for me to spot.  So around 11 pm I finally redid where the gun was and repositioned him.  It finally lasted more than 10 mins and I went to bed hoping for the best.

So what do I see when I cut the TV on this morning, my guy is dead on the screen.  Unless a friend joined in on my match to kill my guy, I don’t know how my guy picking up the gun could have died.

So I started up another horde round and finished it before I quit out.  I was really happy when I actually got to watch the meter run across the screen.  I started at level 91 so moving past that was great.  Then the meter just didn't stop and it maxed out at 100.  I was ecstatic to see that I made it to level 100.  I guess I’ll get my achievement when I reup since I didn't have time to do that needing to get to work.

Now I get to keep working on it until I can get to level 100 again for the 2nd reup achievement. 

I'll have to go look but there aren't very many achievements left in this game that I'm going to put the time in to get.  So I'll have to check on that this afternoon to see what I have left.

Clash of Clans

Well I'm still hooked on Clash of Clans on my iPad.  I finally got my level 6 town hall and have upgraded so you can see my town.

For me to get enough money it took a little work.  I maxed out all my mines in the game to earn as much as I could.  Then when I was high in money, I came home and I had won a defensive fight.  By doing that I had over 400k saved up.  I spent the rest of the afternoon keeping my iPad active so I couldn't get attacked.  During that time I was attacking as fast as I could going after towns with high money in them.  I earned over 300k in gold plus what my mines earned during that time to make it to 750k.  I was so happy to have finally got it.  I can finally upgrade all my stuff again even if it does require more money to upgrade.

Realizing that I need to get town hall 7 already so I can upgrade the barbarians, archers, and goblins in the game.  With town hall 6, I was only able to get giants and wall breakers upgraded.  It's 1.2 million to get town hall 7 and I can't even hold that much.  I'll have to upgrade my storage units to hold that.  I will uprade my defenses first so that I can hopefully defend and win some battles to keep my money easier.

Next on the list to get upgraded is my wizard tower.  Between the wizard and mortar towers, they help win more than anything.  It costs a lot to get them up to the next level but I'm going to focus on the cheaper things first as it will be easier to get to that amount of money first.

Updated Web Page

Figured today was as good as any to update my blog site.

As of now, I've associated my blog with my Google+ account so I can post on Google+ easily.  Added the Google Badge to help anyone add it to their circles easily as well.

I changed the entire layout of the page with a Dynamic view.  I like it better and I will still keep working on it to make it a little more to my liking with the color aspect of it.

Now to figure out how this posts to my Google+ page via this post to see how things go.

Well, I thought I liked the Dynamic but it's not doing like I want it to so this might be changing soon.

**Another Update**
Well I'm still working on it but I"ll have to come back.  Guess I should have kept my old design.  Not sure why but it won't add any ads onto the site like it did before so I'm going to have to research why it's not.

**Last Update**
Well I can see the ads I have on the page now but if I use a Dynamic page, I don't see them at all.  So not going to try to use that until I figure out why.

Batman: Arkham City

I've actually stopped playing pinball since I beat a friends score and I've been working on Batman: Arkham City.  I actually finished the story in the game already but that leaves you with just over 300 points in achievements.  That means there are lots more to do in the game.

Well, even though I beat the game for the story line, the other side stories or side missions in the game are still waiting.  So I went and finished all those up except for The Riddlers.  Well, I did rescue 2 hostages but you have rescue like 6 I think.  Well, you don't unlock the hostages until you collect enough of the Riddlers trophies around the map.  So I'm currently running around trying to find all the trophies in the game which I've spent 3 days in one corner and I still have a few I'm trying to find or figure out.  I thought the first Batman was bad, this one has even more.  What really got me last night was I kept seeing these brackets  that look like [] on the map.  I had no clue what they were until now.  They are where the answers to Riddlers riddles are.  You literally have to find what he's talking about, do a scan while in front of the object to complete the riddle.  Luckily the game has guys you'll see in green with the scan mode (forgot what it's called) on.  If you interrogate them, they give you the locations of the riddles on the map.  Without that or using a guide, figure all this out on your own would make this game extremely difficult to finish.

Microsoft had 2 of the 4 DLC's on sale this week.  They were Robin and Nightwing's DLC.  Those DLC's don't have any story  modes in them at all.  They are strictly on the fighting arena which I royally suck at the fighting in this game.  I was horrible at it in the first one and I'm not going to waste my time to do what I'm just not good at.

The other 2 DLC's have stories included with them.  I got Catwoman's as I bought the game new.  Harley Quinn's is the other DLC and I would have liked to have bought that one but not for $10.  If they would have put that on sale I would have bought it.

I'll definitely finish and find all the riddles and Riddlers trophies to finish that story line.  Which after I finish all that there is another mode I have to run through and beat the story again.  Only this time the game doesn't give you any help but you did get to keep all your gadgets.  By the time I finish finding all the Riddlers stuff I'll have maxed out everything on Batman so at least he'll be maxed out with every ability when I run through that mode.

I think I have ran into one glitch in the game though and it's with Catwoman's DLC.  After you beat Two Face, you have to go find and beat up 16 thugs to get your loot back.  Well, I've taken down 12 and there are no more guys to take out with loot.  I've ran through and taken every guy down in this entire part of the city where Two Face is and still nothing.  So unless the game randomly spawns them in at some point, I don't know if I'll be able to finish Catwoman's story line.

The Wizard of OZ on Facebook

I would say it's about time they made a Wizard of Oz game but I wouldn't have expected it to be on Facebook.  

I will probably have to play this game strictly for my youngest daughter so she can see and play it.
