With apologies

Signs that one should really stop playing so much X-Box 360 and get back to some serious fic writing : Playing Hannah Montana the Movie for five whole hours just to try and get the 1000 achievement points for it.

I am truly shamed.

So... does that mean you're an expert at the Hoedown Throwdown now?

I don't really know what that means, but I figure that in, uh, different circumstances it would be cause for epic celebration. ;)

Was this one of those 'free game with purchase' kinda deals, or...

Well, assuming you know nothing about how gamerscore works on the 360 (and apologies if you do), every 360 game has a set of 1000 achievement points gained by doing something special in the game. Each of these can be worth various amounts of points. The system tracks these points, adds them up across all games you've played and that is your gamerscore. Anyone who knows your online gamertag, can see which games you've played, which achievements you have, and maybe how difficult they were to get.

I can play a massive, difficult, all-immersing RPG like Mass Effect 2 for 40-odd hours and still come away with less points than playing Hannah Montana for 5 hours.

This game, I got solely for the easy 1000 points. *shame-face*

Oh well. Congrats on the easy points, then. Could have been worse: I'm sure there's a High School Musical game floating around somewhere.
