Danganronpa Another Episode: Ult Review
The adventure/visual novel series takes a detour to a more linear gameplay experience as a third-person shooter, but keeps the zaniness that has made a name for it.

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Gamer Reaches 1 Million Gamerscore: Epic or Pitiful?

Posted on Thursday, March 13 @ 10:50:47 PST by



1 MILLION GAMERSCORE POINTS!!! You didn't ask for it, but it's finally been accomplished.

Otherwise known as his Xbox panhandle Stallion83, Raymond Cox (interesting that we have Cox and Stallion in the same sentence here) has broken his prior Guinness World Record of 511,342G with his new score of over 1,000,000G.

He achieved this milestone during a live four-hour broadcast via Xbox One, leaving Titanfall for the game to reach the seven-digit threshold. According to a statement to Eurogamer, he spent "eight years, three months, I don't know how many days" chasing this goal.

So of course, while this certainly an achievement (in its own right) deserving of a hearty congratulations, is this also a superficial, "what a waste of time" accomplishment? I mean, Microsoft introduced Gamerscore more for marketing that anything else. (And I guess, wow, did that marketing work.)

If you really want to talk about skill in gaming, it's about speedruns, competitive gaming, leaderboards (to an extent), etc. Getting a high GamerScore means pouring through games extremely quickly and owning multiple consoles from different regions; that said, doing so for eight years straight is a commitment that lasts longer than most marriages.
