Gamerscore Challenge!

What’s the Challenge?

Right the whole purpose of this blog is really about the challenge I am about to set myself. I have already posted an article on the cost of games and an article covering what achievements are. So is it possible to achieve a high gamer score while keeping the costs to a minimum?

With the average AAA new release costing £49.99 and assuming the average gamer buys 1 new game a month, my target cost for this challenge will be half that – £25 per month or £300 for a whole year.

Cost of Gaming

Expensive hobby

One thing that I have always found a struggle when gaming has been the cost of games. I have never had a problem with the price of a new console as I always feel you get a great powerful piece of tech for the price.

I have never really been able to buy the latest releases as they are far too expensive, plus my wife wouldn’t bee overly keen on my spending hundreds of ££ every month just because I want the latest games. So I have had to manage with getting the latest AAA title a few months after release, maybe on sale or lending from a friend, I have even rented games online (more of that at a later time).

Achievements….what are they and what’s the point?

So what are they?

Achievements are a way of rewarding you for playing games. They are available for every Xbox 360, Xbox One, Xbox Live Arcade and ID@Xbox games. Every game has a set of achievements to earn/unlock. These range from simple things such as scoring a low shot on Fifa 18, completing COD:WWII on Veteran or playing ROBLOX for 20 consecutive days.

#New Year New Me…..

So I have decided to create a blog, who hasn’t though right?

Having just left my job as a dinner lady (or dinner man as my youngest son kept telling me) I have decided that the time is right for me to start doing something that I actually want to do, so here I am.

Aimed around gaming but more specifically chasing Xbox achievements, I have set up a blog site which will include gaming news (Xbox mainly), reviews, competitions and my own personal progress with achievement hunting.

For now though if you want to follow me on social media (links at the bottom of the page), bookmark this site and I will be back soon.

Thanks for reading 🙂
