The Hand of Thrawn

Its official, I am now a member of The Hand of Thrawn. GSL VII can not get here soon enough now. We might not be the early team favorite to win it all but I strongly feel that we have a shot. I have begun planning my route to put up as many points as I possibly can. The 8 weeks of competition should be very fun and exciting.
The Army says a Soldier only needs four hours of sleep to be effective. My military training in sleep deprevation should give me a slight edge on this gaming battlefield.

Quick Update

Another game to add to the completed list for my second 100% compeltion of the month. Madden 08 helped me raise my score past the 23k mark and also sealed my victory is the x360a challenge over on! announced GSL VII and I have entered my name to be drafted. Im looking forward to participating. Im hoping to land on a solid team but most importantly to make some new gaming friends. My gamerscore should see a very nice boost from the competion which is a big plus.
My goal to hit 30k by the end of 2009 is going to be smashed early this year. Im officially changing my goal to hit 50k by then end of the year; hopefully by the end of the GSL if Im lucky =).

No new gaming news to report. I have taken the last few days off to focus on English class which is probably a good thing. Once I knock out this essay for the week Ill be back in action.

Nice Start to 2009

As the countdown to the end of '08 ended and 2009 began, I made a New Year resolution to to take my achievement whoring a bit more serious. On January 1st, I sat at a measly 18,000 gamer score. My goal that I set out for the new year was to reach 30k by the end of '09 which would be a 1k a month pace.

Its three weeks in and I'm well ahead of schedule. So much so that I will have to adjust my goal here shortly. I was in a race to 40k with a fellow member over at but due to some girlfriend aggro he had to pull out. Not all is lost though as I am also racing Masonasaur to 60% completion. This race will be very close.

Currently I'm finishing up Cabela's Big Game Hunter. Once completed Ill be just a couple hundred shy of 23k and 5k for the month of January.

Allow myself to introduce, myself.

Whats the deal? My name is Tim but I carry a few names and titles. Staff Sergeant T, T, SabreOscar, Sabre x360a, but my favorite name is Daddy.

Ive been in the U.S. Army since the age of 18 and will hit my ten years of military service on May 27th. Its an achievement I am very excited about. The life of a soldier is not always easy but I have enjoyed journey along the way.

I have been gaming since I was 6 years old. It all started on Christmas of '86 when my parents got my younger brother and I our very first Nintendo. Over the years I have gone through many different games and systems. The XBOX 360 has been my platform of choice since it came out. I recently became hooked on getting achievements and have found myself trying to earn as many as possible. In the achievement world my 21k score is not much but with the help of friends and an amazing website my 21k will greatly rise this year.

Not sure why I got the urge to create this blog. It seemed like a good idea but only time will tell.
